Crypto exchange Binance has announced it has onboarded new partners to handle euro deposits and withdrawals, months after losing its previous fiat partner PaySafe in September.
In an Oct. 19 statement, Binance announced that it had signed agreements with new fiat partners for euro payments, deposits, and withdrawals.
The move follows regulatory and debanking woes in the European Union, where the firm was forced to look for new banking partners after it lost the support of PaySafe in September.
Binance said that users have already started being migrated to the new services provided by “a number of new regulated and authorized fiat partners.” It did not specify which firms it had partnered with, however.

The announcement noted that fiat services offered by the new partners include EUR deposits and withdrawals via Open Banking and SEPA/SEPA Instant.
Users can also buy and sell crypto using SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area), bank cards, and their fiat balances, and trade EUR spot pairs.
Paysafe pulled support for transactions in British pounds in May following concerns raised by United Kingdom financial regulators over the partnership.
On Oct. 16, Binance suspended access to its exchange for new users based in the UK. The move followed the termination of a partnership with a third party to approve communications on its platform under new local rules by the country’s watchdog, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
Binance has yet to source fiat partnerships for its UK exchange where British users are still unable to deposit GBP.
Cointelegraph contacted Binance for more specifics but did not receive an immediate response.
