In February 2023, Binance completed the acquisition of Gopax, obtaining a majority stake of 72.26% in response to liquidity challenges stemming from the Genesis Global Capital crisis associated with FTX.

As of now, Binance’s ownership in Gopax stands at 67.45%, solidifying its position as the primary shareholder in the company.

After the purchase, Gopax submitted a report to the South Korean Financial Services Commission (FSC) detailing a significant change in major shareholders for the registration of virtual asset services.

Nevertheless, the FSC postponed the approval of the ownership transfer due to legal issues related to Binance in the United States.

In order for the approval process to move forward, the FSC asked Binance to decrease its ownership stake to less than 10%. Binance had already indicated its plan to reduce its stake in Gopax as far back as January 2024.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

Billionaire owners like Elon Musk, Larry Fink (BlackRock), and Jamie Dimon (JP Morgan Chase) often have a strong influence on the hidden agendas surrounding the paradigm shift brought about by cryptocurrency and emerging Web3 technologies. CryptoCaster stands apart. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to please. Our journalism is dedicated to serving the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions, not profit motives.

We avoid the pitfall of much U.S. and global media, which often resorts to false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency guide everything we do, we recognize that there is a right and wrong stance in the fight against fiat global banking interests and the monetary reconstruction driven by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance, and Ripple crises, we’re not afraid to name names and uncover the truth. As a crypto sentinel, we offer a fresh, outsider perspective on global monetary disruption—something often missing from the insular American and European media bubble.
