In order not to worry its users about the executive’s departure, the Binance.US account also posted a note on the social network, with the endorsement of Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, current chairman, and former CEO of Binance Global . According to the publication, Zhao said that “this transition will not affect BinanceUS customers in any way”.
