Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao is taking a different approach, according to the same notes.
According to the head of the global crypto exchange, Binance helps Ukrainians on the ground rather than using his exchange platform.
“Our teams have been working on multiple charity efforts non stop. Money/crypto/fees are not the key issues. Logistics on the ground, food, fuel, supplies are. For refugees, places to stay, visa, etc. Stay tuned. Binance is apolitical, we just care about the people.”
Anyway, stay tuned for more news and make sure to keep an eye on the crypto market as well.
