On his personal Twitter page, CEO Changpeng Zhao shared about the new step of the relief fund that Binance is implementing.

“With many changes related to stablecoins and banking operations, Binance will convert the remainder of the $1 billion in Recovery Initiative relief funds from BUSD to popular cryptocurrencies like BTC, BNB, and ETH. Some fund movements will be transparent on-chain.”

The Recovery Initiative relief fund was established by Binance at the end of November 2022, to support projects that suffered from the liquidity crisis caused by FTX-Alameda.
