Among them are Bruno Bézard, former head of the French Treasury and government advisor, Hyung-rin Bang, advisor of the Korea Presidential Committee and former executive at Samsung and Hyundai, and Henrique de Campos Meirelles, former president of the central bank and economy minister of Brazil.

We’ve maintained our focus throughout on delivering compliance solutions that protect the interests of crypto users, while keeping a brisk pace of socially-beneficial innovation.
The new advisory board represents the next big step forward in Binance’s journey to share the benefits of modern finance and the blockchain with the world, the chief executive elaborated. “Of all the technologies with the potential to create positive disruption, the world of crypto, blockchain, and Web3 is among the most exciting and the most promising,” Max Baucus added.
CZ also stressed that Binance’s ability to handle regulatory complexity is improving with the Global Advisory Board. Binance can tap into the knowledge of its members through the Global Advisory Board. He described its establishment as a testament to Binance’s focus on compliance, transparency, and collaborative relationships with regulators around the world.
The board’s announcement comes after earlier this week Zhao indicated that the largest crypto exchange wants “to go global by playing locally in multiple markets.” The CEO said that in Bucharest, where he revealed the company is opening a Romanian office and launching Romanian-language support service as part of plans for further expansion into Eastern Europe.
