While decentralization is a crucial component of cryptocurrency, certain individuals have helped make the industry what it is today. Exchange giant Binance has had a massive impact on crypto development, in no small part because of its CEO, Changpeng Zhao  (CZ for short).

Below is a list of articles all about CZ, from controversial quotes to his navigation of the ever-shifting regulatory space.
