Crypto News – The 3-Year Effect of FRA Surveillance on Binance

Crypto NewsForensic Risk Alliance (FRA), an international consulting firm, has apparently been hired by the US Department of Justice (DOJ) to make sure cryptocurrency exchange Binance complies with regulations over the next three years. One of the main conditions of Binance’s November 2023 plea agreement, in which it admitted guilt to money laundering and other federal offenses and agreed to pay a $4.3 billion fine, was the appointment of a third-party company to oversee the exchange’s compliance over the following three years.

FRA Selected to Replace Sullivan & Cromwell

As per a Bloomberg story dated May 10, FRA would be able to furnish the DOJ with regular updates on the company’s operations by gaining access to internal records, facilities, and workers. The DOJ appointed FRA instead of the law firm Sullivan & Cromwell, which was apparently first in line for the contract due to the firm’s previous work for competitor cryptocurrency exchange FTX before its bankruptcy. Sullivan & Cromwell was accused by FTX creditors of actively taking part in the “FTX Group’s multibillion-dollar fraud,” according to an article published on Cointelegraph on February 17.

S&C knew of FTX US and FTX Trading Ltd.’s omissions, untruthful and fraudulent conduct, and misappropriation of Class Members’ funds,

Sullivan & Cromwell is allegedly expected to be chosen for a different five-year monitoring position for Binance, serving as the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network representative for the Treasury Department.
