It is to be expected that these investments are not made primarily with fiat money, but with Binance coins. This has issued Binance itself and currently have a market capitalization of about 1.6 billion US dollars.

The initiative that sets Binance pursues several strategies. The Community Influence fund is designed to invest directly in crypto startups, as well as to participate in other funds active in the industry. Finally, there should be an “Ecosystem Fund”.

For Europe, Binance could become an important company. The Hong Kong-based Exchange is considering relocating its headquarters to Malta after being banned from operating in Japan. The Mediterranean island is also an option for OKEx, the Viennese startup Herosphere or the Graz Blockchain project Artis – all see attractive legal framework conditions in Malta in order to be able to offer Blockchain-based services throughout Europe with a license.
