CZ is honored alongside Kristalina Georgieva of the IMF, "The vaccine chasers," James Gorman of Morgan Stanley and others. CZ joins icons and leaders who have been in previous years, including Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Greta Thunberg among others. CZ said:
"I am humbled and honored to be part of this group of remarkable people who are shaping our world for the better."
Binance launched back in July 2017 as a crypto-to-crypto exchange and quickly became a global blockchain and cryptocurrency infrastructure provider with a financial product suite that includes the world’s largest digital asset exchange by trading volume.
