The world's largest crypto exchange, Binance, has announced the launch of Binance Institutional, a new suite of trading services aimed at institutions, crypto platforms, family offices, high-net worth individuals, crypto miners, asset managers and hedge funds.
The crypto exchange also says it has “embarked” on a “journey” to obtain SOC 2 and ISO-27001 certifications, which are essentially both a set of standards ensuring trust, security, compliance and auditing.

It may currently be a bear market, and Binance’s rival exchange Coinbase, alongside crypto lender BlockFi, may both be slashing their workforces by up to 20%, but it appears to be business as usual at Binance. For starters, the exchange is currently hiring.

In a company statement, Binance.US CEO Brian Shroder called the measure: “an opportunity to revolutionize the way fees are approached in our industry, increase accessibility to crypto, and help our market and customers in a time of need.”
Yesterday, Portuguese superstar soccer forward Christiano Ronaldo announced a multi-year joint marketing deal with the exchange. As part of the deal, multiple Ronaldo-themed NFT collections will be released every year.
