The platform recorded loss of 4 million euros in 2022. Binance justifies this loss by the fact that the accounts cover 14 months of expenses for only 6 months of income. “ Binance France began receiving revenues only after receiving regulatory approval from the AMF to operate in France, and this was around mid-2022, whereas operating costs were incurred as early as November 2021,” says the company based in Montrouge in the Paris region, specifying that it would normally be profitable over 12 months.

Binance France generates the majority of its revenues thanks to fees charged on cryptocurrency trading. The expenses include staff salaries, marketing costs, administrative expenses and taxes.
