Last week Binance started accepting fiat on-ramp with Chinese payment provider Alipay and messenger WeChat. Changpeng Zhao, Binance CEO, stated that the exchange wasn’t working directly with the aforementioned companies, but that users could use those services for payments. Alipay banned all over-the-counter (OTC) transactions with cryptocurrencies last year, and after Zhao’s announcement, the company soon replied that all crypto-related transactions made using the payment provider would be stopped immediately, as they monitor OTC transactions closely to ensure government policies are complied with.
