In May 2023, Gulf Binance, a partnership between Binance and Gulf Energy’s innovation division, Gulf Innova, received a license from Thailand's Ministry of Finance to act as a digital asset operator. Binance and Gulf created the joint venture in 2022 and worked alongside Thai regulators to establish a fully compliant exchange that strictly adheres to the Thai Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). 

Nirun Fawattananukal, CEO of Gulf Binance, said in a statement:

“We are deeply humbled to finally announce the launch of our local platform to the general public in Thailand. Over the past year, we have been working closely with Thai regulators, putting substantial effort into detailed planning.”

Binance and Gulf Innova announced in November 2023 that they will soon launch the Thai-based crypto exchange. The joint venture further announced that it received a license to operate from the Thai SEC.   

In a press release, Binance’s newly appointed CEO, Richard Teng, commented on the launch:

“With the full operation of Binance TH by our Thai joint venture to the general public in Thailand, we will uphold our unwavering commitment to security, transparency, and service quality. Blockchain technology and digital assets carry the power to bring about financial inclusion.” 

Teng added;

“This is a strategic step forward, setting the stage for Thailand’s impending role as a key player in the global digital finance landscape.”
