Binance.com is a very controversial business: a scam for some, or the best crypto-currencies trading platform for others. But where are the servers of Binance.com located?… Their domain name gives those NS servers (as of today):
ns-1319.awsdns-36.org ns-1701.awsdns-20.co.uk ns-234.awsdns-29.com ns-735.awsdns-27.net
They are using Amazon AWS Route 53 service!
The IP addresses returned are (as of today):
Those IP addresses are located in: Tokyo, Japan! They are using EC2 instances.
They do not use IPv6.
Why Japan?… Well the reasons are multiples:
- Obsviously they want to escape regulatory restrictions in other countries than Japan (like the European Union or the USA).
- Japan has no censorship when cryptography is used, as guaranteed by the Japanese Constitution in Article 21:
No censorship shall be maintained, nor shall the secrecy of any means of communication be violated.Japanese Constitution, Article 21
