With Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, there has been speculation about new changes the Tesla CEO will integrate into the social microblogging site.

With control of Twitter in the hands of the capricious Elon Musk, Binance’s Changpeng Zhao shared a new statement, adding that Twitter will soon become the center of the nascent web3 space.

Twitter and Web3: what happened?

It’s no secret that Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao was one of the few people who invested in Musk’s Twitter acquisition. Zhao publicly confirmed the news on Twitter, adding that the Binance team had wired $500 million to Musk two days before the deal was finalized.

Zhao seems optimist that the “new Twitter” under Musk’s leadership will surely drive the general adoption of cryptocurrencies and Web3.

He later went on to discuss how Binance hopes to support a powerful entrepreneur like Musk and help him support crypto adoption in general.

“We want to help solve immediate problems, such as membership fees that can be easily done with cryptocurrencies.” Zhao later shared
