Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by daily trading volume, proudly announced on June 8 that it has reached a remarkable milestone of 200 million global users. This achievement marks a significant moment in the company’s ambitious journey to onboard one billion users, roughly one in every eight people on Earth.

Celebratory Milestone for Binance

Binance took to its social media platforms to celebrate the occasion, attributing this success to the unwavering support of its users. A post from Binance on X.com read: “Today, we celebrate 200 million – and it’s all because of YOU! Your support is the heartbeat of our journey to 1 billion users. Here’s to the stars of our story – you!”

The exchange’s user base has seen substantial growth in a short period. In 2022, Binance had approximately 130 million users. By the end of 2023, the platform had added 40 million more users, bringing the total to 170 million. Within the first six months of 2024, Binance has already attracted an additional 30 million users. If this trend continues, Binance is on track to reach 300 million users by 2026.

Market Share and Global Adoption

According to research from Triple-A, the global cryptocurrency consumer base reached 562 million people in 2024, an increase of 142 million from 2023. With Binance’s 200 million users, the exchange now accounts for approximately 36% of the global cryptocurrency user base. This dominant market share highlights Binance’s significant role in the broader adoption of cryptocurrencies worldwide.

Financial Milestones

In addition to its growing user base, Binance set another industry record earlier this year. As reported in March, Binance reached a total of $100 billion in user assets under custody.

This averages out to about $500 worth of assets per user, underscoring the platform’s robust financial health and trustworthiness among its users.

Binance to Overcome Legal Challenges

Despite its impressive growth, Binance has faced significant legal challenges in the United States and around different continents on the planet. The leading exchange and its executives have been trying to restore the firm’s former glory. Recently, the exchange confirmed that it would make its comeback in India, the largest democracy in the world.

Founder and former CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao is currently serving a four-month sentence for fraud charges in a minimum-security facility in California. However, the company has continued to thrive and expand despite these setbacks.

CZ, known for his strong leadership and visionary approach, has expressed remorse for his actions and is reportedly serving his time with a sense of responsibility. His absence does not seem to have impeded Binance’s progress, as the company has maintained its upward trajectory.
