Binance strengthens advisory board
Binance announced Palma’s appointment to its advisory board just days after the exchange announced former Brazilian finance minister Henrique Meirelles would also join the board. Meirelles served as Sao Paulo’s finance minister in April and also served as Brazil’s finance minister from 2016 to 2018.
Binance has been expanding its market size in Latin American countries, particularly focusing on Brazil.
