CZ Step Down

Binance, the global leader in cryptocurrency exchange, faced criminal charges for violating sanctions and laws related to money transmission. The company has opted to settle the accusations by agreeing to pay a substantial sum of $4.3 billion.

And many others’ solace from well-known individuals in Crypto.

To me, as a Crypto researcher, I found this events emotional, because, CZ has been one of the greatest man in the Crypto industry. Without him, the Crypto Industry shall not been reached its height as today, shall not be thriving as today. However, we are not be able to change what had happened, and we, as well as CZ, all hope for a a better future for Crypto, a new era of Binance without CZ.
