The outrage was prompted by the government’s plans to integrate the service from the world’s largest exchange by volume at a time when Binance continues to do business with Russia, which invaded Ukraine in February. The nation’s crypto exchanges don’t want a foreign company to provide a service that they can do as well. They showed their displeasure by blocking trades of Binance’s BNB token on their platforms.
