After China's restriction on crypto mining and transacting, The United Kingdom has decided to start their own policies toward the market. The Financial Conduct Authority has banned the largest trading platform in crypto known as Binance. There were conditions that the platform could not meet in its anti-money laundering requirements which caused the FCA to ban the service. However, the ban only accounts for regulated brokers which means that unregulated services can still provide Binance, and crypto traders in England can still access Binance's website.
Most of the crypto market seemed to have shrugged off these worries of countries tightening regulation as it does serve as the market becomes more recognized. This ban seems very mild in comparison to other news as this doesn't really take away crypto trading in the UK, it only limits it to unregulated entities. I don't think this will cause big implications in the short term for the crypto market.
