Changpeng Zhao Biography

Zhao was born in the Chinese province of Jiangsu. He moved to Canada with his family in the late 1980s, when he was 12 years old, and settled in Vancouver, British Columbia. Both of his parents were teachers in China. Before being labeled a “pro-bourgeois intellect” and exiled to rural areas shortly after Zhao’s birth, his father worked as a university instructor. Zhao supported his family during his adolescence by working a variety of service jobs, including at a McDonald’s.
Zhao majored in computer science at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec.

Changpeng Zhao, abbreviated “CZ,” is a Chinese Canadian business executive. Zhao is the co-founder and CEO of Binance, which as of July 2022 had the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume.
