Binance effort for blockchain and Web 3.0
In a bid to preach blockchain and Web 3.0 across the globe, Binance is currently meeting governments and regulators. Therefore, having Binance as the major sponsor of the Blockchain week in Paris is of no surprise.
However, the absence of a Unified operating approval in Europe has forced Binance to meet European leaders individually.
