The exchange also invites other companies and individuals to join the charity initiative. According to the head of the company Changpeng Zhao, the exact scheme for transferring funds to the flood victims will be developed in the very near future. Donations can be done in ETH or ERC-20 tokens.
Zhao also noted that because of the extremely limited time, this time the company decided to make the process of accepting donations as simple as possible. However, in the future Binance plans to develop a more systematic mechanism for implementing such initiatives.
