Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao (CZ), is currently facing a hefty fine of $50 million and a potential prison sentence of up to 18 months. The sentencing is scheduled for February 23, but there is a chance of it being postponed. Despite stepping down from his management duties, CZ will still maintain his ownership stake in the company. In light of these legal troubles, CZ has expressed his determination to move forward and overcome this challenging period.

In order to ensure compliance in the future, Binance will be under the watchful eye of a five-year watchdog. Additionally, the U.S. Treasury will have complete access to Binance’s data. This legal settlement signifies a significant shift in the regulatory landscape for cryptocurrency exchanges operating in the United States, and its implications may extend far beyond the industry.
