The guy who became billionaire in an year!

It is a motivational story of Changpeng Zhao, founder and CEO of Binance, a Chinese cryptocurrency company. Binance, now, has a net worth of $1.1 billion-$2 billion. Changpeng Zhao was born in Jiangsu province, China. In the late 1980s, he moved with his family to Vancouver, Canada. As a teenager, he supported his family by serving burgers and drinks in McDonald's and working at a gas station. He used to be a very hard working boy. Zhao attended McGill University in Montreal, Canada, where he majored in computer science. In 2005, he moved to Shanghai where he founded Fusion Systems and in 2013, he worked for various cryptocurrency projects including Blockchain.info and also served as chief technology officer of OKCoin. But his life completely changed after he founded Binance in 2017 when it became a major success of Zhao. In a small period of just under eights months, Zhao grew Binance into the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, as of April 2018. In February 2018, Forbes Magazine placed him third on their list of "The Richest People In Cryptocurrency". As of September 2018, his net worth is estimated at $1.4 billion.

  • Binance is a great exchange, and I don't see it going anywhere soon. The number of users are increasing and the interface has overhauled a few times already. In the future, I can many people that have trade-friendly personalities use the platform to make exchanges.
