The Polish authorities aren’t taking any actions or alleging any wrongdoing on behalf of Binance, but drawing attention to previous warnings circulated by foreign regulators and warning caution.
On Jul. 7, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao published a blog post addressing the recent wave of regulatory warnings over its practices, emphasizing Binance’s commitment to regulatory compliance.

The Polish Financial Supervision Authority issued a notice drawing investors’ attention to recent warnings and actions taken by foreign regulators against Binance.
Polish Authorities Urge Caution Against Trading On Binance
The Polish Financial Supervision Authority (UKNF) has published a warning about trading on Binance.
The agency stated that the cryptocurrency markets are neither regulated nor subject to the supervision of the PFSA.
Considering recent events, however, the PFSA has warned Polish investors of the heightened risks associated with investing and trading cryptocurrencies on Binance.
The agency has recommended users exercise caution when using the services of Binance group entities, claiming that activities on the exchange “may involve a significant risk that may result in the loss of funds.”
In the warning, the PFSA makes reference to several recent regulatory developments involving the exchange. They included Germany’s Federal Financial Supervisory Authority’s (BaFin) investigation into Binance concerning suspicions that it violated prospectus obligations required under E.U. Prospectus Regulation, the U.K.’s Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) warning to Binance that the company is not permitted to undertake any regulated activity in the U.K., Cayman Island’s probe, and Thailand’s criminal case against the exchange for providing unauthorized crypto-related financial services in their respective territories.
The PFSA further reminded Polish investors of its previous warning concerning the acquisition and trading of cryptocurrencies in general, issued in January 2021.
It’s worth emphasizing that, unlike other foreign regulators—like Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA) or the U.K.’s FCA—which have issued stringent warnings, the PFSA isn’t taking any action or alleging any wrongdoing on behalf of Binance. Instead, the Polish authorities are drawing attention to the potential risks of using Binance’s services.
A day prior to PFSA’s consumer warning, Binance’s CEO Changpeng Zhao published a blog post addressing the recent wave of regulatory warnings over its practices, emphasizing the company’s recently intensified commitment to regulatory compliance.
