Founded in 2017, by Changpeng Zhao aka CZ, the exchange was originally based in China but has since moved to Malta following increasing crypto regulation in China.
In November, 2018, the cryptocurrency exchange published a ten-point thesis on why it was bullish and dedicated to Africa and included Lagos, Nigeria in its subsequent incubation program that was hosted across 5 cities in the world.
