Crypto exchange Binance has planned to recruit a Brussels lobbyist full time in the context of the European Union looking to finalize cryptocurrency laws.
The Binance open position is called ‘Policy Communications Director’ and the person in charge would have to shape a narrative for communications and create powerful campaigns for regulatory, political, and corporate developments impacting Binance across the European Union. The news came from a job hiring ad posted by the company on its website. The job’s other responsibilities include handling social media and blogs which will be created to get to regulators.
The employee will be based in Brussels, full time, as opposed to several other positions at the company which can be performed remotely. Rumors are that the European location would enable the employee to have access to European Parliament and European Commission officials who are in charge of agreeing and proposing new crypto laws.
In April 2023, MiCA or the Markets in Crypto Assets regulation is expected to emerge. MiCA seeks to ensure consumer protection and set norms for financial stability on crypto exchanges and wallet providers. Other areas such as DeFi and crypto lending could also receive regulations.
Binance has an operating license in several EU countries, such as Cyprus, France, and Italy. Also, the company is a member of Blockchain for Europe, a Belgium-based lobbying group.
