Bybit appoints new general counsel to lead global cryptocurrency compliance
Cryptocurrency derivatives exchange Bybit has appointed a new general counsel to lead the firm in its global compliance matters, and to oversee its legal team.
Daniel Lim, formerly head of legal and compliance for the Singapore-based investment bank, Daiwa Capital Markets, was announced in the new role on March 9. Lim joins Bybit shortly after the exchange was forced to close down operations in the United Kingdom, following the FCA’s blanket ban on retail crypto derivatives trading.
