Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao remained vocal about his views on Bitcoin and other digital currencies. During a recent interview with Bloomberg, Zhao said that almost 100% of his net wealth is invested in crypto. “I don’t own any fiat. The physical stuff that I own is probably negligible in terms of my net worth. So, this is a conceptual shift. I’m not using crypto to buy fiat; I’m not using crypto to buy houses. I just want to keep crypto. And I don’t plan to convert my crypto into cash in the future,” Zhao said.
