Several other well-known exchanges were also included in the ban that was imposed at the end of last year. These exchanges included Bitfinex, Kraken, and Huobi. Also, after paying the fine and promptly resolving its regulatory requirements, KuCoin was allowed to quickly begin operations.

In the meantime, while it adapts to the changing regulatory environment in India, Binance has shown its commitment to regulatory openness and collaboration by its continuous interaction with the FIU, which included resolving the penalty amount post-hearing.

Furthermore, Kraken, Gemini, and Gate.io are among the other platforms that have begun talks with Indian authorities. Thus, showing a coordinated effort to enter the Indian market and comply with regulations.
