Binance, the leading crypto exchange company, is reportedly in discussions with Indonesia’s wealthiest family, the Hartonos, for launching their new crypto exchange. As per the recent report by Bloomberg, Binance is now willing to finalize a new crypto venture with the Hartonos, who control the PT Bank Central Asia(BCA). This bank and a state-owned telecom firm PT Telkom Indonesia are owned by the two billionaire siblings, Budi and Michael Hartono.
As per the reports, BCA will be an active member of this partnership. However, they would be a separate business entity. The terms of the partnership could vary while finalizing the deal. Binance was already a renowned name for their previous venture. This crypto trading platform will now release its second venture with the Hartonos if this deal gets finalized. This new crypto venture paired with the richest family and the largest telecom firm in hands with the partnership will make Binance one of the prominent names in the country.
Binance has already been on the news lately for halting their crypto trading services for the hindrances in the regulatory compliances set by Singapore in the second and third quarters of 2021. They have acquired an 18% stake in a local private securities exchange, Hg exchange. They also led another massive $1.5 million funding round for the Asian tokenized messaging platform, the BBS Network. Thus, this new venture can be a great start to expand their name into the Asia Pacific region. Apart from all these acquisitions, Binance’s sister company in the IS reportedly closed another multi-million funding round which is supposed to raise a couple of hundred million as stated by the CEO of global exchange, Changpeng Zhao.
