This development marks a pivotal moment in Binance’s leadership structure, notably since Teng’s transition from his previous role overseeing regional markets to assuming the CEO position in November 2023. Notably, this shift coincided with the departure of former CEO Changpeng CZ Zhao, who resigned amidst a settlement agreement with U.S. authorities.

Under the terms of this agreement with the U.S. Justice Department, Treasury Department, and Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Binance consented to pay $4.3 billion in penalties. Additionally, CZ pleaded guilty to a felony charge linked to inadequate Anti-Money Laundering measures at the exchange. CZ’s sentencing is scheduled for April 30, while Binance still awaits further regulatory actions from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Established in China in 2017, Binance swiftly rose to prominence as one of the premier cryptocurrency exchanges globally, spearheaded by Zhao’s leadership. Notably, Zhao’s approach maintained a decentralized structure for the firm’s operations and workforce.

With operational bases in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for its Middle East and North Africa endeavors and in France to cater to its European clientele, Binance expanded its footprint across diverse regions.

Following its agreement with U.S. authorities, Binance was mandated to establish a board of directors comprising independent members along with compliance and audit committees. In a statement made in December 2023, Teng expressed his commitment to providing regular updates and reports to the newly formed board, highlighting the company’s dedication to transparency and compliance.
