A major overhang over the crypto market – whether the world’s largest crypto exchange might soon be put out of business – might soon be going away, and bitcoin (BTC) and BNB Coin (BNB) are moving higher on the news.
According to Bloomberg, Binance by month’s end might be paying $4 billion to make multiple criminal charges in the U.S. go away. Importantly, however, the settlement reportedly would allow the exchange to continue operations.
To this point, a spokesperson with the DOJ declined to comment to CoinDesk and Binance didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
After initial dips when the headlines hit, bitcoin and BNB have both moved to session highs, with bitcoin ahead 1% on the day and BNB up 6%.
