Binance under regulatory pressure
Binance is still under increasing regulatory pressure in the U.S., where it is embroiled in disputes with two regulators, and the UK. Many top managers have left the company in recent months amid ongoing repression.
Over the past few months, several more top management employees have left the company. We are talking about the head of the Asia-Pacific region of Binance, Leon Funeg, chief strategy officer Patrick Hillman, general counsel Hong Ng, and chief business officer Yibo Ling.
In September, another top manager, Mayur Kamath, global head of product and design at Binance, left the crypto exchange. Also, two top managers responsible for the Russian region left Binance at once: its director in Eastern Europe, Gleb Kostarev, and director in the CIS, Vladimir Smerkis.
