Nigeria Requests Binance Country’s User Data

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The High Court in Abuja has ordered crypto exchange Binance to provide detailed information on all Nigerian users trading on its platform.

This order was issued following a petition from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, which is investigating the exchange’s operations in the country.

The requested data includes the full transaction history and personal information of Nigerian users. The Nigerian government has accused Binance of financing terrorism, money laundering, and manipulating the value of the naira.

The Central Bank of Nigeria claims that over $26 billion has passed through Binance in the past year, but the source of these funds cannot be determined. In the past, Binance was required to provide a list of the top 100 Nigerian users and their transaction history for the previous six months.

The exchange was also instructed to settle any unpaid taxes. If found guilty, Binance could be fined up to $10 billion.
