Web3 is going just great [English]  -  Binance announces that users won't be able to use SWIFT for transfers below $100,000

"Signature" in gold script

Binance informed its users that they would no longer be able to perform transactions below $100,000 via the SWIFT financial network. According to Binance, this was because their banking partner, Signature Bank, had announced they were implementing that floor for all cryptocurrency exchange clients.

Signature Bank has suggested it intends to step back somewhat from the crypto industry. It is one of the relatively few US banks that services crypto clients, and provided services to FTX among others.

Patrick McKenzie speculated that the change might have been related to AML/KYC, and Binance's "Bond villain compliance strategy".
