Binance Reports Net Inflows of $3B+ Between Late Nov 2023 and Late Feb 2024, Claims it Outpaced Competitors

Since stepping in as Binance CEO, Richard Teng  (who replaced former CEO Changpeng Zhao), has reportedly made it a priority to ensure and maintain the user-focused principles of Binance across the company, with the primary emphasis being on ensuring stability.

According to Richard Teng, in this sense, no “radical reforms” were needed, as in many ways their organization had “already been set on the right course.”

Teng noted in a blog post that Binance‘s user-focused approach continues to be the driving force behind consumers’ trust in their company and the corresponding growth of their user base, “with more than 178 million registered users as of today.”

Moreover, since their unprecedented settlement with US regulators, Teng claims that the firm continues to demonstrate a “strong” financial performance.

Data from DefiLlama reveals that Binance recorded net inflows of over $3 billion between late November and late February, outpacing what their biggest competitors took in over the same period.

In January of 2024, the Binance platform “pulled in the largest estimated inflow since at least November 2022.”

Teng writes in an extensive update that Binance has “favorable external conditions to thank – the approval of spot BTC exchange-traded products in the United States has contributed to the crypto market’s strong momentum – but even against this backdrop, Binance’s excellent performance over the past 3 months stands out conspicuously.”

Teng added that during his first 100 days as CEO, they rolled out “a number of exciting features for both retail and institutional users.”

Continuing to focus on simplifying access to the world of Web3, Binance has introduced an array of new features to the Binance Web3 Wallet.

This includes support of new chains, “enhanced swap options, and access to more DEXs and bridges.”

They also launched the Binance Inscriptions Marketplace, integrated with their Web3 wallet, to offer the crypto community “a user-friendly way to trade and mint a range of inscription tokens.”

Further doubling down on making crypto trading more social, they reportedly “made improvements to Binance’s copy trading functionalities, specifically, introducing the Mock Copy Trading feature.”

This educational tool lets users “practice and learn using virtual test funds in a risk-free environment.”

On the institutional side, Binance has successfully “initiated and executed the first-of-its-kind banking tri-party arrangement in the crypto industry, where an institutional investor’s trading collateral is held in fiat with a third-party banking partner.”

This is an innovative risk management solution “that addresses counterparty risks, which institutional investors in the industry take extremely seriously. Replicating a framework common in traditional financial markets, it allows investors to better manage risk and scale their crypto-asset allocation.”

They also made strides in institutional lending business, and are “increasing their ability to source and provide liquidity for fixed-duration loans.”

As the digital-asset space welcomes more and more institutional investors, including those that are new to this asset class, Binance’s goal remains “to facilitate their onboarding and offer the range and quality of services that would make them stick around for the long haul.”

As stated in the update from the new Binance CEO:

“While many of the earliest crypto adherents were decidedly anti-regulation, as the industry has grown, it’s important to acknowledge that regulation is an indispensable part of the lifecycle of all innovative sectors. The foundation of a robust regulatory framework must be built on basic principles of maximizing protections for users while fostering a safe and sustainable ecosystem that can grow responsibly. I believe that users are the ultimate beneficiaries of the hard regulatory compliance work that we do as they get to enjoy the security and stability of a well-regulated digital-asset ecosystem.”

As stated in the update from Richard Teng:

“Over the past three months, we have made significant headway in negotiating licenses and authorizations. We also furthered dialogue with regulators and industry stakeholders around the world to bolster cooperation and coordination on the pathway of the crypto industry’s sustainable growth. One of the results this work yielded was that, in January, Gulf Binance – an exchange and brokerage platform in Thailand, the joint venture between Binance and Gulf Innova – successfully launched its full operations, extending access to digital assets to potentially millions of Thai crypto users and crypto-curious.”
