Binance to launch crypto exchange in Indonesia

Binance is about to launch a crypto exchange in Indonesia, with the help of the Hartonos. Let’s find out all about this.


Binance, the biggest Crypto exchange has revealed that it is about to launch a crypto exchange in Indonesia. Binance will partner with the most influential and richest family of Indonesia, The Hartonos. The Hartonos initially started as clove cigarette producers. However, as the business grew the Hartonos transformed the business into a conglomerate. Their business venture portfolio is diverse and elaborate. They also are the owner of Indonesia’s largest private bank, The Bank Central Asia.


Now, according to reports, Binance Holdings Ltd. is looking for a partnership with Hartonos owned bank, The Bank Central Asia.

Reports also state that the bank will, most likely initiate the partnership with a separate business entity. The terms and conditions are still under discussion and will soon be finalized.

Why this move

Binance faced quite a setback this year due to regulations. This move will give Binance a fair advantage and will cement its position in the Asia Pacific region. Along with that association with the richest and most influential family of Indonesia will also propel Binance’s push for expansion.

The Indonesian Government’s attitude towards Cryptocurrencies is unlike other countries. Cryptocurrencies are positively regulated in the country. The Government treats Cryptocurrencies as investments and allows their trading with normal commodities.

Other ventures of Binance

If Binance emerges successful in this deal, this would be the second Crypto venture of the company. The first is a partnership with Indonesia based trading platform Tokocrypto.

Earlier Binance announced that it will obtain a stake of 18% in Hg Exchange (HGX). Additionally, Binance declared that it’ll be investing $1.5 in Bulletin Board System (BBS) Network, which is a network for online board messages.


Binance making such a strong move and moving to Indonesia with a partnership with the most influential and richest family of Indonesia is quite interesting. Hopefully, you liked this article. If you liked this article and want to read more articles like these, do visit our website.
