Binance CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao has denied Bloomberg data on his wealth, claiming the numbers are wrong and his net worth isn’t even near to the data revealed in Bloomberg’s new rich list.
While Binance does not publish any annual financial disclosure on its revenues and CZ’s stake, Bloomberg estimated that CZ is worth $28.2 billion and ranked him 3rd in the top 25 rich list. Meanwhile, Forbes rich list estimates that CZ is worth $10.5 billion.

Numbers all wrong. I don’t have anywhere near as much. Don’t know why they do this. 🤷♂️
Also, never viewed FTX as a rival. We welcome more (well run) exchanges in the space. pic.twitter.com/xfa31RZp7t

Bloomberg in the “New Finance Rich List” ranked Binance CEO “CZ” third, followed by Citadel CEO Ken Griffin and trader Jeffrey Yassa among the 25 financial leaders. Bloomberg estimated “CZ” net worth at $28.2 billion and Binance’s annual revenue at around $12 billion. The list is led by computer-driven trading companies.
