Binance announced the establishment of a new blockchain hub in Georgia on March 26, with the goal of increasing cryptocurrency acceptance in the country. 

The leading exchange refers to the center as a “Web3 outpost,” with the goal of encouraging expertise to Georgia’s blockchain business, advancing industry education, and expanding employment prospects.

The release states that 25 individuals are now employed by Binance’s Georgia subsidiary, who works with the regional public and commercial sectors to plan educational and hackathon activities. By the end of 2023, when the cryptocurrency company opens its regional base in Georgia, it hopes to add “dozens more jobs.”

Binance Continues to Expand Operations

According to Vladimir Smerkis, regional director for Binance, Georgia is amongst the most forward-thinking nations in the area and a “serious leader” in terms of the adoption of cryptocurrencies.  

Smerkis emphasized that Georgia’s officials are aware that strong regulations on the cryptocurrency market can frequently have unfavorable effects, adding: 

“There are many developers and enthusiasts in Georgia who create independent blockchain projects, games […] This country is an excellent springboard for the development of this direction.”

The opening of Binance’s new regional headquarters in Georgia comes after a number of significant steps in the company’s expansion there. Earlier this year, Binance collaborated with the Georgian Innovation and Technology Agency, joined forces with the neighborhood cryptocurrency payment processor CityPay, and started a charity programme to assist Web3 education for women.

Interestingly, Binance CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao met with Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili on a visit to the country in November 2022.

Binance has kept going and expanded its offerings despite the rising continuous pressure and negative effects. The business also revealed its intentions to hire more people this year in January. 

Zhao said during a conference on cryptocurrencies that his company intends to keep building until the bear market is over. It’s interesting to note that the company has recently increased its geographic reach by offering its prepaid crypto card services in Colombia.
