Binance in the news – CEO addresses crypto adoption catalyst
The CEO of Binance digital asset exchange, Changpeng Zhao, has just revealed a way of increasing the global adoption of cryptocurrencies.
In an interview with Yahoo Finance, the Binance CEO made sure to explain the fact that having regulations for the digital asset industry would “ease” crypto adoption.
“I do believe that having regulatory clarity will actually ease adoption. There is a group of guys who got into crypto early, many of them may be libertarians, anarchists etc. They hate any kind of regulation.”
