Zhao stated that Binance is now looking to establish regional headquarters all over the globe, and has requested licenses whenever possible, in light of recent events.
Zhao Said On Twitter:
“There are no immediate plans to replace me as CEO. I/we would very much like to hire a strong compliance background CEO to show our commitment to compliance as this is the top priority of the organization.
We are always hiring for CEOs. I don’t need to be CEO, and I am not leaving. I will always find ways to contribute to the community behind the logo tattooed to my forearm. I am proud to be a member of the binance ecosystem. Let’s keep growing it.
CEO contingency planning starts in day 0, same as any other role. I feel CEOs should not stay for more than 10 years, ideally around 5 years. We live in a dynamic world. We need new thinking. Presidents only serve for 4 years.”
Binance Daily Withdrawal Limit Reduced
Binance has reduced its daily withdrawal limit for unverified Accounts by 96%.
Accounts that have not been fully verified will see their daily withdrawal limits adjusted to 0.06 BTC from 2 BTC.
This was done because Binance is being criticized by regulators around the globe for not following regulatory requirements.
