Regina has explained that BNB’s strategy focuses on fundamentals and long term growth prospects for the crypto industry.
In light of recent indecision on the part of major governments in regards to blockchain and cryptocurrency, Regina and her company continue to stand firmly behind their investment thesis. While certain aspects of their theory remain unchanged, such as the belief that blockchain technology has the potential torevolutionize many Industries, it is clear that new developments are continually shaking up this space.
In a market that has seen many dips and surges, Regina believes that Binance is in the middle of a building phase. With more capabilities being built on the Binance Chain platform, she wants to enable as many people as possible to utilize this technology. “Through the bear market and ‘mini bulls’ along the way, we’re in a phase where everyone is building,” Regina said. “And we want to enable more capabilities on BNB Chain.”

The goal is to provide everything required so the developers can concentrate on the creation of their games, rather than having to worry about finding the right resources.
Regina and the BNB investment team view investments as vehicles for creating wealth and opportunities. They feel that growth incentives are one of the most important elements of an investment, alongside financial capital. This focus on opportunity elevates the potential for long-term success.
