Binance Channels Its ‘Inner Balmer’ With New Platform for Developers
As the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, Binance aims to expand its ecosystem with the launch of Binance X, a new platform to support developers who are building innovative solutions on Binance Chain, Binance.com APIs, Trust Wallet Core SDK and Binance Charity.
Says Teck Chia, head of Binance X,
“As Binance has evolved into a platform with multiple products and services, we believe it is the right time to systematically foster a developer ecosystem to build innovative products and services on our platform.
The Binance X team will help educate, create opportunities for collaborations and jumpstart growth of these projects via the different programs and resources we have at Binance.“
Mirroring the mission of X Development, formerly Google X, the subsidiary of Alphabet that was originally launched in 2010 to invent “moonshot” technologies that solve big problems using radical solutions and transformative technologies, Binance X has started a fellowship program to support top developers and researchers who are exploring initiatives for open-source crypto projects.

Binance rolled out the platform on Thursday.
Ripping a page from Steve Ballmer, the former chief executive officer of Microsoft who mapped out the playbook for how to grow a successful tech company, the company says that its comprehensive suite of products will allow it to channel its “inner Ballmer” in support of developers.
