The worlds largets crypto exchange, Binance, has been around for just about a year now, but they are growing strong. Now, in an interview with Bloomberg, the company CEO Changpeng Zhao said that he expects the company to make a profit of between $500 million and one billion dollars this year. This far, Binance has made a profit of about $300 million.
