Ben Rose is the GM of Binance New Zealand. He has a long history of sales, marketing, and growth with New Zealand businesses from start ups to banks like ASB and NIB.
Just last month Binance launched here in the New Zealand market and Ben is tasked with growing the crypto market and maybe bringing back our futures trading once Binance is properly licenced.
In this conversation we touch on marketing, regulation, education and some self sovereign topics like custody and ownership.
