CZ Sheds Light On Hong Kong Crypto Policy Easing
In what appears to be criticism directed at the US regulators, CZ shared a report about the Hong Kong central banking asking local banks to give banking services access to crypto businesses.

When asked about China’s previous stance of banning crypto, CZ replied saying, “things change.”
