Soccer Star Andrés Iniesta Warned by Spanish Regulator After Promoting Binance


Soccer star Andrés Iniesta, who performs for Japan’s Vissel Kobe, obtained a warning from the Spanish markets regulator after he promoted buying and selling on cryptocurrency change Binance.

Iniesta, who spent a lot of his profession at FC Barcelona and has over 25 million followers on Twitter, wrote that he’s “learning how to get started with crypto with @binance #BinanceForAll.”

Spain’s markets regulator, the National Securities Market Commission (CNMV) replied to the tweet, stating that “cryptoassets, being unregulated products, carry some significant risks.”
