The world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and former global head of regional markets Richard Teng has recently expressed his confidence in the crypto company’s fundamentals.
Binance Fundamentals Shows Strength Amid Challenges, New CEO
Earlier today, the new Binance CEO confidently revealed the fundamental strength of the crypto company despite recent challenges. The CEO took to his official X (formerly Twitter) handle to share his belief in the company. According to Teng, the fundamentals of the company’s business are still solid.
Furthermore, the CEO has asserted that the company will continue to operate as the biggest crypto exchange in the world. Teng pointed out several areas that will enable the company to hold on to its position in the crypto market. These include its debt-free capital structure, modest expenses, and robust revenues and profits.
Binance continues to operate the world’s largest crypto exchange by volume, our capital structure is debt-free, expenses are modest, and, despite the low fees we charge our users, we have robust revenues and profits.
Richard Teng’s X post responded to another X post by a user highlighting Binance’s revenue due to the DOJ’s $4 billion fine. According to the user, the company has no “problem paying the fine, as its total assets are valued at approximately $6.35 billion.”
In addition, the crypto company also holds about $3.19 billion worth of Stablecoins. Interestingly, the mentioned funds do not include off-chain cash balances or funds kept in wallets outside the Proof of Reserve (PoR). The post read:
I backed out Binance Corporate’s crypto holdings from their Proof of Reserves: $6.35B in total assets, and $3.19B in stablecoins. Doesn’t include off-chain cash balances or funds held in wallets, not in PoR. Most likely able to pay the full $4.3B DoJ fine with 0 crypto asset sales.
Changpeng CZ Zhao Pleads Guilty To Crime
This is so significant that despite the craze following former Binance’s CEO Changpeng CZ Zhao, the company remains strong, according to the new CEO. Changpeng was charged with US money laundering, of which he has recently pleaded guilty to the charge. Furthermore, the former CEO has agreed to pay about $50 million as part of his plea.
In addition to the penalty is Binance’s $4 billion fine as part of a settlement. The company’s fine is regarded as one of the largest corporate penalties in US history.
