Apple removed Binance KuCoin, and other cryptocurrency exchanges offshore from its India App Store days after Nine entities received compliance show cause notices.

OKX, a prominent offshore cryptocurrency exchange that was not sent a notice of cause, was also removed from Apple India’s app store. Binance, KuCoin Huobi, Kraken Gate.io Bittrex Bitstamp MEXC Global Bitfinex Bitfinex were the nine exchanges who received notices.

The Indian Financial Intelligence Unit, which is part of the Finance Ministry of India, has issued show-cause notices for non-compliance with its Prevention of Money Laundering Act. The government has also taken the first steps in blocking the URLs for “said entities” that operate illegally and without compliance.

A person with knowledge of the situation told CoinDesk that the URLs for these exchanges still work in India because the process is ongoing and requires a lot of paperwork. Person familiar with the matter said that the Indian government might also wait until the entities respond to the notices, before taking any further action.

Google Play Store continues to display the apps.

Binance said that existing app users would not be affected and will continue to work closely with regulators in order to resolve this issue.

The post was made on Binance South Asia (formerly Twitter).

Apple India and FIU were not immediately available for comment.
