Binance exits Russia
Because of the regulatory pressure, Binance exited the Russian crypto market.
Binance also instructed customers on how to withdraw funds to the CommEx platform safely and also established a friendly collaboration with CommEx exchange to help the customers.
In this situation, CommEx is getting a huge advantage because it’s a newly established exchange with very few customers & employees. So this exchange secured a big customer base from Binance & also some talented employees.
