Job Appointments | February 11, 2020 By:

Malta-based crypto exchange Binance has appointed Iskander Malikov as the Director of Fiat, Europe, and CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States).

Malikov had been serving as the COO of financial platform TradingView since 2017, where he was responsible for business development, partnerships and market data licensing among others.

In his new role, Malikov will primarily serve in establishing new fiat-to-crypto channels and gateways in regions throughout Europe and CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) as well as expanding existing ones within Binance’s key markets. He will also develop new strategic business initiatives and partnerships across these regions.

“Cryptocurrencies and crypto exchanges are a relatively new phenomenon in most CIS and some European states,” said Malikov. “My overarching mission is to accelerate crypto adoption and work with the leadership to help make crypto more accessible in markets throughout CIS and Europe.”

Additionally, Malikov will examine ways to simplify fiat-to-crypto and crypto-to-fiat conversions.

“I believe crypto is not only here to stay but will also create a new, alternative ecosystem capable of competing with traditional financial products and commonly known asset classes,” said Malikov. “I hope to popularize this new asset class and help in reducing the friction when purchasing crypto to make the process more seamless. I am looking forward to working with the team and building on this new financial ecosystem to provide people with better products and services and the freedom of choice.”
