Cryptocurrency exchange Binance will likely earn between $800 million and $1 billion this year, as market uncertainty drives interest – and trading – in cryptos, CEO Changpeng Zhao told Bloomberg.
That’s up from about $570 million in 2019, according to the report.
Launched in 2017, Binance is one of the world’s largest crypto exchanges by trading volume.
