Signature Bank will not handle transactions of less than $100,000 for crypto exchange customers, according to a statement from exchange giant Binance.

Binance said in the statement emailed to CoinDesk that Signature had told the company that it “would no longer support “any of its crypto exchange customers with buying and selling amounts of less than 100,000 USD as of February 1, 2023,” and that this would be true for “all Signature’s crypto exchange clients.”

 

“As a result, some individual users” might not be able to use SWIFT bank transfers to purchase or sell digital assets “with/for USD” for smaller amounts.

Binance said that 0.01% of our average monthly users were serviced by Signature Bank, and that it was actively working to find an alternative solution."

The company added that users could continue using their accounts, including "buying and selling crypto using credit or debit cards, using one of the other fiat currencies supported by Binance."


 

SWIFT is a global messaging network that allows financial services firms to send and receive money transfer instructions and other information quickly and securely.

 

In recent weeks, Signature and other financial services firms have been ratcheting back their involvement in crypto markets, part of the ongoing fallout from crypto exchange FTX’s implosion and other industry debacles.


In December, Signature, which has been among Wall Street’s most crypto friendly banks, said it would shrink its deposits tied to cryptocurrencies by $8 billion to $10 billion.
