Binance Exchange has summed up the results of the sixth round of the campaign "Community Coin".

To everyone's surprise, it turned out to be Zilliqa (ZIL), which was only third on the voting results.

We have weighed all factors in the voting process and have also applied a consistent methodology across all candidate votes to filter for oddities.  

We have taken a very serious stance against vote manipulation, and voided candidates that were found to have openly violated these principles.

We would like to congratulate the winner - Zilliqa (ZIL).

As promised, ZIL has been awarded with a free listing placement on Binance.

Decision of the Binance exchange was met by users extremely ambiguous. Representatives of the communities of Elastos and WePower, between which the main struggle has flared up, remained, at least, dissatisfied with this outcome of the vote. Some pay attention to the growth of the rate and volume of trading Zilliqa shortly before the announcement and accuse Binance of insider trading. Others believe that in this situation, Binance took the only right decision.

The world's largest crypto exchange Binance will support the program for support of local fintech startups, organized by the Malta Stock Exchange.

Fintech Accelerator MSX will support prospective start-ups and, in particular, provide professional services for business, including accounting services and provision of workspace.

It is clear that Malta is becoming a Fintech and blockchain center of excellence and we want to allow local and foreign companies the ability to bring their ideas to the market faster. This programme offers foreign entrepreneurs easy access to a readymade solution at one of Malta’s most prestigious addresses – the Malta Stock Exchange.

Joseph Portelli

Chairman, Malta Stock Exchange

Up to 12 fintech startups will be able to take part in the program. In addition to Binance, the new accelerator for startups will be supported by the media corporation Thomson Reuters.

Previously, the head of Changpeng Jao has repeatedly noted that Malta is one of the best places for the blockchhain companies, which is facilitated by a favorable tax and regulatory climate.
