Binance’s CEO will have to stay in the US, for now.

Last week, Changpeng Zhao agreed to step down as CEO of the massive cryptocurrency exchange Binance — part of a plea deal with the DOJ for breaking anti-money-laundering laws.

However, one remaining disagreement has been where he will spend his time while awaiting sentencing for the felony charges. Despite agreeing to a $175 million bond, prosecutors consider him a flight risk and wanted to keep him in the US. That question isn’t fully answered, but Reuters reports a judge ruled CZ is staying the US for now while the court considers it, instead of being allowed to return to the UAE.
