Black and white history in China
Although Binance originated in China, it left in the wake of the crackdown of Beijing on crypto-to-fiat trading and initial coin offerings. The tough stance of the Government was soon strengthened with further measures that focus on the trading and issuance of decentralized cryptocurrencies.
By 2019, Binance returned and made its first strategic investment in China. There were then unconfirmed rumors that Binance is planning to open an office in Beijing.
At the same time, Binance launched a peer-to-peer trading service for Chinese Yuan pairings against Tether, Ether, and Bitcoin.
In January 2020, Binance seals a 1.4 million worth of medical supplies for their fundraising project for Wuhan.
