In a recent update, Binance announced that its CEO Changpeng Zhao, also known as CZ, has been honored by Bloomberg Businessweek by adding the name to the Bloomberg 50 of 2020. With regards to this news, CZ said,
“I am humbled and honored to be part of this group of remarkable people who are shaping our world for the better.”
Bloomberg 50 includes the top fifty people who proved to be highly influential leaders in different fields, such as business, finance, technology, science, entertainment, and politics. Two more renowned names that accompany CZ in the list are Kristalina Georgieva of the IMF and James Gorman of Morgan Stanley.
CZ further added to his statement,
“Our goal is to bring more inclusion, sustainability, and responsibility in the crypto and blockchain ecosystem that is beneficial to society and protects our users and the industry. We believe we’re stronger together and continue working with others who share the industry’s common mission to further the freedom of money around the world for the new financial era.”
In previous years, people like Elon Musk, Greta Thunberg, and Jeff Bezos have been on this Bloomberg 50 list. This news may help Binance in rising above the on-going debate about Binance vs. Coinbase.
