London,UK-July 22,2022

SMARTCHAIN DEFI, a one-stop LaaS DeFi protocol provider, announced the appointment of Jonathan Farnell as its new Chief Compliance Officer. Jonathan Farnell is the former head of Binance UK, a cryptocurrency exchange.

Farnell served as compliance director of eToro Money UK, board member and compliance director of eToroX. He has a deep background in financial services and co-founded EMI, which is based in the UK and was acquired by eToro Group in 2019. His rich experience in electronic money and cryptocurrency regulation and his focus on creating exciting new products for users will strength the ability of SMARTCHAIN DEFI’s fast-growing compliance team.

Emin Sirer, director of SMARTCHAIN DEFI Foundation, added: “Jonathan is a very accomplished compliance professional. He brings important expertise in the development of regulated products, which will be a great asset for SMARTCHAIN DEFI. We are committed to fulfilling our compliance obligations in any place where we operate. Jonathan’s joining is an important step in the development of our team. ”

Ross Sandler, an analyst at Bank of Barclays(Barclays: BARC, NYSE:BCS), pointed out that SMARTCHAIN DEFI had received Series A financing of $16 million led by Binance LABS in May. This personnel adjustment will most likely be as part of the shareholding agreement. Binance has the right to appoint the CEO, CFO and Chief Compliance Officer of SMARTCHAIN DEFI.

On July 21st, the day before this appointment, the UK Treasury issued the draft digital assets legislation. These rules were introduced in the turbulent process of the encryption market. Many well-known crypto enterprises closed down and about $2 trillion left the industry. The regulations also follow the British government’s promise to turn the country into a cryptocurrency center before the cabinet resigned and threatened to shelve the regulatory scheme.

The company is likely to make this personnel adjustment in order to obtain the cryptocurrency license approved by The U.K.’ s Financial Conductor Authority (FCA), which also reflects Binance’s support for the quasi-unicorn enterprise with the current valuation of $300 million for its compliance and capitalization and a series of subsequent routes.
