CEO of Binance exchange Changpeng Zhao statedthat the resignation of the CEO of the American division of the company, Brian Schroeder, is a “well-deserved break.” However, he urged the community to ignore the FUD surrounding this event.
Last week, media reported that Binance.US plans to cut a third of its staff. In addition, its CEO left the company.
