Binance steps up for humanitarian causes.
The CEO of the world’s leading crypto exchange Binance, Changpeng Zhao, tweeted on 26th January, “Binance pledged 10 million RMB ($1.5 million USD) to help Coronavirus victims.” He added that for Wuhan, it is not realistic to do crypto to end beneficiaries. He also wrote that they need help to arrange logistics locally.
The victims of Coronavirus have been confirmed in other countries as well, including Australia, Malaysia, Nepal, Japan, Singapore, and South Korea. The World Health Organisation said that it is too early to declare Coronavirus as a public health emergency of international concern.
