In the fast-paced world of cryptocurrency, Binance is a major player. As a leading crypto ecosystem, it not only facilitates trading but also champions crypto education, blockchain infrastructure development, harmonization of digital asset regulation globally, and much more.
Here, we turn the spotlight on Rachel Conlan, the Global Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), shaping Binance’s image and strategy.

Rachel also emphasized their commitment to regulation and transparency in Binance’s operations. “Establishing trust within the industry requires robust security measures and commitment to regulatory frameworks. This trust forms the foundation of our brand.”
Let’s dive deeper into Rachel Conlan’s role and explore her insights on Binance’s brand identity and the firm’s role in Vietnam’s evolving crypto landscape. How does she envision Binance’s future over the next five to ten years, and what role does she see for Binance in the growing Vietnamese market’s blockchain and crypto adoption?
Can you briefly explain Web3 and blockchain technology to our listeners who may not be familiar with these terms?
If you’ve been following the tech scene lately, you’ve likely heard a lot about Web3 and blockchain technology. I can understand if all of this might feel a bit like alphabet soup. So, let me try to break it down for you.
Many say that Web3 is the new age of the internet. It’s a shift from being a passive viewer in a movie theater to actively participating on the stage. While Web1 and Web2 had us all in the audience, Web3 invites us to be part of the action. Here, it’s not just a few companies holding all the data and control – users like you and me get a piece of the pie. It’s all about creating a more open, permissionless internet where trust is built into the system. While Web2, the previous iteration of the Web, was all about the social sharing of information, Web3 envisions a free exchange of value online. Enter blockchain.
Speaking of blockchain technology, imagine an ever-growing list of records, called blocks, all linked together in a secure and transparent network. Each block records a set of transactions, and once it’s filled, it gets sealed and becomes part of the chain. The system is decentralized, which means it doesn’t rely on a single server or authority, instead, many participants manage it. The beauty of this technology lies in its transparency, security, and immutability. Once a block is sealed and added to the chain, those recorded transactions stay unchanged. What it does in practice is that it allows us to create unique things online that cannot be copied or tampered with: money, contracts, art, and much more.
How will Binance’s brand evolve in the next five or ten years?
Looking ahead, our vision for Binance’s brand is multi-faceted yet firmly rooted in our origins. As a global ecosystem, our goal remains unwavering: to enhance financial freedom worldwide, and this objective remains at the core of all our endeavors.
The evolution of Binance’s identity will reinforce our position as industry pioneers. We’re dedicated to pushing boundaries in blockchain and crypto services, leveraging AI and other state-of-the-art technologies as we advance.
We’re also doubling down on education. The technical aspects of the Web3 space can be daunting. Thus, we’re committed to providing resources and assistance to make Web3 knowledge more accessible, allowing more people to engage in this innovative realm.
Moreover, our brand will prominently underscore our dedication to user security. As we move forward, we’ll prioritize developing and implementing cutting-edge security measures, fostering trust and reliability among all participants within the industry.
Lastly, we envision Binance acting not just as an industry leader but as a community leader. We want to inspire, motivate, and lead the global digital asset community toward more sustainable and inclusive financial solutions. This approach has helped us to onboard over 170 million users and will remain critical to our future success.
So, in five to ten years, Binance will hopefully be seen not just as the go-to platform for digital asset trading but as a comprehensive, innovative force driving global financial freedom.
How do you see the potential for blockchain and cryptocurrency adoption in the Vietnamese market, and what role does Binance aim to play in this evolving landscape?
The Vietnamese market is dynamic and constantly evolving, showing tremendous potential for adopting new technologies. Its growing digital economy, enthusiastic young population, and burgeoning tech landscape instill confidence in the prospects of next-generation technologies like blockchain.
Regarding the role of the Binance ecosystem in this landscape, it is crucial to emphasize the spirit of learning and collaboration. We anticipate contributing to the understanding of blockchain technology and digital assets. Our focus will be on enriching the knowledge landscape through educational initiatives, fostering greater awareness and understanding of these technologies. We aim to assist in the creation of an informed community that understands and appreciates the potential of blockchain technology.
What strategies does Binance have in place to foster the growth of the Web3 ecosystem on both local and global scales?
When it comes to nurturing the growth of the Web3 ecosystem, Binance focuses on two main pillars – infrastructure development and education – both locally and globally.
Our approach to infrastructure development involves providing vital support to numerous projects and initiatives within the Binance ecosystem. We prioritize creating robust and user-friendly infrastructure elements crucial for a thriving Web3 world.
Our contributions span decentralized finance (DeFi), the next generation of decentralized applications (DApps), and layer-one and two solutions. For instance, our recently launched Web3 wallet is a pivotal part of our advanced infrastructure efforts. This self-custody digital asset wallet acts as a gateway to Web3, offering users a seamless way to swap tokens across different networks at competitive rates, explore diverse DApps, conveniently transfer funds, earn yields on their assets, and much more.
Education also holds great importance in our strategy. We conduct global and regional educational initiatives to help users understand the transformative potential of Web3.
By engaging with local tech communities, participating in policy discussions, and crafting educational content tailored to diverse audiences’ needs, we establish meaningful connections with our diverse community at the local level. On the global stage, Binance actively contributes to broader conversations about blockchain. We engage in interactive discussions that highlight the potential of Web3 technologies and value opportunities to learn from and collaborate with others in the ecosystem.
What’s next for Binance?
The Web3 industry changes rapidly, and no one can predict the innovations that will emerge in the future, similar to previous trends like NFT and GameFi. While Binance didn’t create these trends, we always prioritize building and improving our products to ensure the best user experience. We also make sure to have sufficient capacity to onboard more people into the world of Web3 when the next wave arrives.
