Additionally, he discussed the exchange’s expansion despite the year 2022’s severe bear market. According to his calculations, the exchange boosted its workforce size from 3,000 in 2022, to 8,000. CZ has said that, in 2023, it intends to prioritize making the exchange more efficient by, among other things, investing in both technology and customer service.
“We have one business that is pretty big, pretty profitable but it is not going to last forever… we don’t want to become the Kodak. We want to disrupt ourselves rather than other people disrupting us.”

CZ also predicted that over the next 10–15 years, a decentralized exchange will emerge that would be larger than Binance. Overall, 2022 was a rough year for the cryptocurrency industry, investors, and companies. But CZ’s Binance was riding the wave vigorously despite all the challenging times.
