Changpeng Zhao (CZ), the Founder and CEO of Binance, stated that the company is “honored to partner with BitPay” by describing the company as “one of the earliest and most reputable crypto payment service providers” in the crypto sector.
“Partnering with BitPay will enable merchants and businesses from around the world to accept BUSD. We believe a growing number of merchants and businesses will start adopting crypto.”
