Binance Backs Plan With Digital-Coin Investors to Create Bank in Malta
Binance one of the largest crypto exchanges in the world is making attempt to set the organization for a new bank. The owner of this bank will be digital-coin investors. The company stated that the crypto-friendly island of Malta will be the property of the future Founders Bank.
According to an emailed comment to Bloomberg, it has invested in a 5% stake alongside other mainstay investors at a 133 million euro, pre-money valuation.
A member of the European Union and subjects to its financial rules, the bank would require a license from regulators in Malta.
Malta is the fusion ground for traditional and blockchain finance now. A lot can happen in 3 short months. https://t.co/byUbqmUMN5

Based on blockchain systems, the project will make an attempt to turn Founders Bank into the world’s first community-owned and decentralized bank; provided it gets all necessary authorization.
Binance stated, that its investment marks the very first step towards an offering. The Founders Bank will hold it through the blockchain-based equity fundraising platform Neufund, issuing its own ‘legally-binding equity tokens.’ The government is very supportive of cryptocurrency here, so they decided to shift to Malta.
On Thursday Silvio Schembri in a Binance statement stated,
We are honored to be chosen as the location of the first global community-owned bank.
He is the junior minister for financial services, digital economy, and innovation within the Office of the Prime Minister of Malta.
