CZ Clarifies On Binance Wazirx Acquisition
Meanwhile, Binance chief executive officer CZ responded to reports of Binance’s acquisition of WazirX in 2019. He clarified that the acquisition attempts were made but the deal never materialized. Binance does not own any equity in WazirX’s parent company, he said in a tweet on Friday.
“On 21 Nov 2019, Binance published a blog post that it had “acquired” WazirX. This transaction was never completed. Binance has never – at any point – owned any shares of Zanmai Labs, the entity operating WazirX.
Binance only provides wallet services for WazirX as a tech solution. There is also integration using off-chain tx, to save on network fees. WazirX is responsible all other aspects of the WazirX exchange, including user sign-up, KYC, trading and initiating withdrawals.
Recent allegations about the operation of WazirX and how the platform is managed by Zanmai Labs are of deep concern to Binance. Binance collaborates with law enforcement agencies all around the world. We would be happy to work with ED in any way possible.”
