[1] Changpeng Zhao: Before Becoming Binance CEO & Getting in the Billionaire’s Club


Did you know… Changpeng Zhao used to flip burgers at McDonald’s and work nights at the gas station before he founded Binance? After he graduated from Mcgill University in Montreal, he worked at Bloomberg Tradebook and at the Tokyo Stock Exchange as a software developer. He later sold his apartment in Shanghai for $1M and used the money for bitcoin. Then began his cryptocurrency journey with blockchain.info and OKCoin. He left OKCoin & launched Binance which became the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange in just under a year. You’ll always see CZ in official Binance merch of shirts and hoodies. And the rest is, as they say, a $1.4 billion history.
