  • The founder of cryptocurrency exchange Binance recently resigned from his position as Binance CEO.
  • The newly elected CEO has published his first official blog statement.
  • The former Binance CEO, CZ, is still facing criminal charges from the U.S Department of Justice.

The recent DOJ crackdown on Binance which alleged criminal charges including the violation of the U.S anti-money laundering laws, resulted in the shocking departure of its founder Changpeng “CZ” Zhao from the Chief executive Officer Position. On November 21, Richard Teng, the now-former Global Head of Regional Markets of the exchange was appointed as his successor, and has since taken the helm as the exchange’s new CEO.

Six days after assuming Binance’s leadership position, Teng has published his inaugural official blog statement.
