The development was announced by popular cryptocurrency media outlet Wu Blockchain, saying:
“Breaking: On May 4, Binance was approved by the French financial regulator AMF to become a digital asset service provider (PSAN), capable of providing digital asset custody, services, transactions, platforms and other functions.”

Binance Focus on Obtaining Regulatory Approval
Recall that for the most part last year, Binance was slammed with stringent regulatory scrutiny for operating in countries where it lacks the necessary approval.
Iran and Italy were among the countries that announced that Binance is unauthorized to operate in their respective regions.
Following the issues that arose last year, Binance has opted to obtain regulatory approval in countries where its services are offered.
