When Binance – through its CEO, Changpeng Zhao, announced in May that they would be expanding to Uganda, few would take him seriously. It was easy to dismiss it for PR as he was giving a keynote at the Africa Blockchain Conference.
However, a month later – on June 28 – it officially launched in Uganda.
“Binance is excited to announce our first fiat crypto exchange – Binance Uganda,” the company wrote in a blog post.
This was through a partnership with a Ugandan blockchain company called Crypto Savannah.
However, now, the company is doubling down further just a month after making the announcement.
In the job description, the company points out that they are “looking for an experienced Customer Support Manager to set up and expand our customer support operations in Uganda.”
Additionally, the person will be responsible for “Uganda’s Customer Service operations” and also “support the local and global audience”.
What is important to note is that the person will also be charged with hiring and expanding the Binance Uganda team “quickly” as well as “develop training programs and evaluation strategies.”
This is an opportunity that Uganda has to become the leader in blockchain not only across the African continent but the globe.
This is because CZ, in his speech, emphasized his desire to support any efforts dedicated to developing blockchain software developers in the country.
In other news, Binance – which just made a year a few days ago – announced its first acquisition. The world’s leading crypto exchange acquired True wallet in a move that is viewed as expanding its crypto services.
