Binance Labs is a crypto-investment project that is geared towards aiding the growth of blockchain technology projects. With a specific focus on projects that are considered sustainable and beneficial to the broader health of cryptocurrency ecosystems. This can include the development of Dapps, Defi, and the development of Web3 or decentralized web technology.
Created in 2017 by Changpeng Zhao and Yi He, Binance Labs have met with some regulatory and legal issues. In the US for example, Binance Labs allegedly did not meet financial regulatory standards and therefore was ordered to cease its operations. In response to this, Binance created BianceUS, which followed US regulatory guidelines much more closely. Regardless BiananceUS still remains banned in several US states.
