Binance has already committed to setting up an exchange in Uganda and the process is ongoing. However, according to Mr. Zhao, the company is looking to go beyond Uganda and actually reach out to the rest of Africa, including Kenya.
According to Zhao, “Building up a local community does not limit us just to Uganda. Uganda is a very good starting point. But we want to go across Africa as well.”
Speaking to the press during the Africa Blockchain Conference 2018, ChangPeng expressed his interest in working with various organizations and always looking to partner with as many organizations as they can.
Here is the Binance CEO speaking during the press conference:
The African Blockchain Conference 2018, held in Kampala, Uganda, brought together 21 African nations around the Blockchain space. It was organized by the Blockchain Association of Uganda, in partnership with Crypto Savannah, a Blockchain hub based in Kampala.
