According to the results of the inspections the FSA has issued 7 warnings Japanese cryptocurrency exchange, and 2 of them ordered to suspend its activities.
Just a couple of hours, chief Executive officer Binance commented in his Twitter:
The Nikkei has acted irresponsibly. We are engaged in a constructive dialogue with the FSA and has not received any notifications from them. For FSA does not make sense to share any information with the publication without prior notification to us, as we are in a good working relationship with the Japanese Agency.
The Nikkei showed irresponsible journalism. We are in constructive dialogs with Japan FSA, and have not received any mandates. It does not make sense for JFSA to tell a newspaper before telling us, while we have an active dialog going on with them.— CZ (not giving away crypto) (@cz_binance) March 22, 2018
