Chanbin Zhao is the founder of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange Binance, and in just five years, the former McDonald’s chef managed to make a fortune of close to one hundred billion dollars and became the richest man in Asia.
Zhao became the world’s first cryptocurrency entrepreneur and was able to challenge world-famous IT moguls, including Mark Zuckerberg.
However, the behavior of the founder of “Binance” does not fit the typical image of a billionaire and is considered one of the most mysterious celebrities in the world, according to the website “lenta”.
Zhao doesn’t own real estate, doesn’t own expensive cars, doesn’t wear fancy watches, prefers not to appear in public either in private life or in business, and Zhao keeps privacy first.
Zhao was born in the Chinese province of Jiangsu in 1977, and since childhood he often had to get used to difficult living conditions.
In addition, in the 1970s, his father was persecuted, and since then, Zhao decided to find a way to change the difficult living reality of his family.
Zhao became introduced to the cryptocurrency in 2013 during a friendly poker game with BTC China CEO Bobby Li and cryptocurrency investor Ron Kao, who advised him to take a risky step and invest a tenth of his savings in bitcoin.
With his extensive knowledge of programming, Zhao quickly grasped the technical documentation of the first cryptocurrency. He was familiar with encryption technology using public and private keys, which made it easy for him.
Zhao stressed that in addition to being able to rent a room in a good hotel and fly business class, he is not taking advantage of his huge fortune.
