Binance is a global cryptocurrency exchange that provides a platform for trading more than 100 cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, etc. Since early 2018, Binance is considered as the biggest cryptocurrency exchange in the world in terms of trading volume.
CEO Changpeng Zhao had previously founded Fusion Systems in 2005 in Shanghai; the company built high-frequency trading systems for brokers. In 2013 he joined Blockchain.info as the third member of the cryptocurrency wallet’s team. He also worked at OKCoin as CTO for less than a year, a platform for spot trading between fiat and digital assets.
The company was founded in China but moved its servers and headquarters out of China and into Japan in advance of the Chinese government ban on cryptocurrency trading in September 2017.
In March 2018, Binance announced its intentions to open an office in Malta after stricter regulations in Japan and China.
