The Bloomberg Billionaires Index has boosted the worth of Binance founder and CEO Changpeng Zhao to the 11th richest man in the world. Binance, which he founded, can be called a “rich maker”, which distributes cryptocurrencies as bonuses to employees and leads them to become billionaires. One Binance coin is now worth more than 13,000 Taiwan dollars. Do ordinary people still have a chance to replicate his road to riches?
Standing on the other side of the phone screen, Changpeng Zhao was in Dubai when he was interviewed by Foresight. The cryptocurrency exchange he founded, Binance, just signed a cooperation agreement with the Dubai World Trade Center Authority (DWTCA). , to jointly promote the establishment of a “global industrial center of virtual assets” in Dubai.
Wearing a black T-shirt with the Binance logo printed on it, three buttons and two buttons neatly, and a soldier-like flat head, Changpeng Zhao does not look like the richest man at all. Standing all the way to the end of the conversation, completely hiding the momentum of the personal net worth of up to 96 billion US dollars (about 2.65 trillion Taiwan dollars).
Hot search on both sides of the strait, who is Changpeng Zhao?
To become the richest man in the new Chinese, first of all, the Chinese media “Caijing” published an article on Weibo, estimating that Changpeng Zhao’s worth surpassed that of China’s richest man and the chairman of Nongfu Spring, Zhong Suisui, to become the “Chinese richest man” and ranks among the top ten richest people in the world. As soon as the news came out, everyone was shocked and became a common hot search on both sides of the strait that day. Without exception, they all asked, “What is the origin of Changpeng Zhao?”
That happened on December 1, 2021. His worth was estimated at $90 billion. After only two months, his name reappeared on the US media “Bloomberg” billionaire index, and his worth skyrocketed. to $96 billion.
In the list of billionaires on January 10, 2022, he surpassed Mukesh Ambani, the richest man in Asia and chairman of India’s Reliance Group, and also beat Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Google founder. Larry Page.
With the title of the richest man falling on the heads of people in the currency circle, the cryptocurrency that is invisible and intangible, is it a hyped Ponzi scheme? Or the new gold of the digital age? Makes it even harder to see. But Bitcoin’s crazy rally in 2021 may prove that the currency circle is becoming more and more influential.
