A report published by CNBC, and shared by Binance on Twitter, explains that the investment “is the first step into a marketplace that has really high potential when it comes to adoption of Web 3.0 based tools” Forbes has plans to go public via a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) deal with Magnum Opus.
“Binance’s strategic investment will be through Binance’s assumption of subscription agreements representing $200 million of commitments in the $400 million private investment in public equity (PIPE) that was previously announced along with Forbes’ intention to go public via a business combination with Magnum Opus,” Forbes detailed on Thursday. The American business magazine and digital publisher added:
