Also, the Binance’s founder told journalists that initially, he hoped that the purchase and selling of cryptos on Binance would set off in Malta in the frames of a year. In a conversation, Zhao even hinted about the company’s intentions to provide its service in Uganda and, perhaps, in some Asian countries.

Why Malta?

Despite the fact that regulations in Malta dispose crypto-projects to it, there were some other reasons for Binance to move there. In particular, as Zhao said, Malta deserves the name “Blockchain Island” as, according to its words, it is ideal for companies, which deal with blockchain.

Once again, he emphasized the regulators’ friendliness in Malta towards crypto-startups. Zhao noted that there have already been a few crypto-firms which have move to the island in March for better crypto-business prospects.

Interestingly, before there were circulating some rumors that Binance had purchased islands to work on its blockchain projects, but the company’s founder has recently dismissed them.

Currently, Binance is working on generating a decentralized exchange. Zhao called it a project of a top priority.

By the way, a week ago the exchange announced its intentions to establish a huge crypto-based fund worth $1 billion in order to support startups in the niche.
