The head of the cryptocurrency exchange Binance, Changpeng Zhao, has a net worth of $28 billion, according to a list of new financial tycoons compiled by Bloomberg. Despite this, CZ himself denies this data, calling it “too high.” It is worth emphasizing that Binance is one of the largest crypto exchanges in the world and has a significant impact on the cryptocurrency market.
- According to the list, Changpeng Zhao has become the most vexatious financial tycoon in China and the third in the world after Citadel founder Ken Griffin and Susquehanna chairman Jeff Yass. At the same time, CZ denied these figures in a tweet, saying they were too high and based on assumptions rather than facts.
Numbers all wrong. I don’t have anywhere near as much. Don’t know why they do this. 🤷♂️
Also, never viewed FTX as a rival. We welcome more (well run) exchanges in the space. pic.twitter.com/xfa31RZp7t
