Chanpen Zhao opened the number of remote employees of Binance
The remote staff of the Binance cryptocurrency exchange has about 4,000 people, but this figure is constantly changing. CEO of the company Chanpen Zhao told about this in an interview with Foresight.
According to him, new people join the company every day. Most employees prefer a salary in fiat, but there are those who receive bonuses in Binance Coin (BNB).
“After receiving Binance Coin, they decide, sell or not sell [tokens],” Zhao added.
According to Coingecko, in early January 2021, BNB traded in the region of $ 40. On May 1, token quotes updated the historical maximum at $ 645, and on May 3 exceeded $ 650.
At the time of writing, Binance Coin is traded near $ 463.
The publication noted that after the ICO in July 2017, each employee received an additional payment at Binance Coin as an incentive. The amount for ZHAO, according to the media, amounted to 50,000 BNB – more than $ 23 million at the time of writing. The head of the company did not rule out that in the future he would direct 99% of his state to charity.
Previously, Bloomberg rated the personal capital of Zhao at $ 96 billion. The assessment did not take into account the digital assets belonging to him, but even in this case, CEO Binance turned out to be richer than the Indian tycoon Mukush Ambani and approached the co -founders of technological giants, including Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
Then the company challenged the conclusions of the agency.
In the fall of 2021, China Caijing journalists estimated the state of Zhao at $ 90 billion, based on the assumption that it owns a share of 30% in Binance.
In March, the Chinese research institute Hurun presented a rating of crypto -brilliarder in 2020. Zhao’s welfare was estimated at $ 8 billion-he lost only to the head of FTX Sam Bankman-Frida ($ 10 billion) and CEO Coinbase to Brian Armstrong ($ 11.5 billion).
Recall that in 2021 the financial regulators of several countries, including the UK, the Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Africa and a number of others, issued warnings for investors regarding the activities of the Exchange.
In September, Zhao connected the concern of departments with the company’s business model and announced the transformation of Binance into a licensed enterprise with a centralized business.
Against the backdrop of regulators’ warnings, the founder of the company also published an open letter in which he spoke about Binance plans to ensure regulatory compliance and customer protection.
In November, Zhao announced plans to open headquarters in France.
In the same month it became known that CEO Binance became the owner of real estate in Dubai. The media saw in this the signal of the upcoming opening of the Bitcoin-Birzhi head office.
