Australian regulators have launched an investigation into cryptocurrency exchange Binance’s classification of wholesale and retail investors. This comes just two days after Binance shut down all of its derivatives trading in the country. The authorities have taken action against the exchange as they continue to monitor its operations globally; Binance has come under scrutiny from regulators in multiple countries in recent months. The investigations highlight the need for investors to be cautious when trading on centralized exchanges, as they do not have control over their keys or coins.
