Binance's CEO and cofounder Changpeng "CZ" Zhao retweeted CoinMarketCap's development and included a link. It released a proof of assets recently that featured wallet addresses and activities. After the release of the initial version, CZ stated that soon be made public through Merkle Tree PoR.
Binance, Kucoin, Bitfinex, Crypto.com, Huobi, OKX, and By bit are among the exchanges currently implementing proof-of-reserve. Five other crypto exchanges have publicly announced they are conducting full proof-of-reserves verifications but were not included in the list including Kraken, Gate.io, BitMEX, Coinfloor, and HBTCHBTC.
In an effort to be transparent, numerous other platforms in the market started disclosing their financial reserve and liquidity data. Some of the companies who release their own data first were Chainlink Labs, Bitfinex, and Bybit. Grayscale, which focuses on providing cryptocurrency investment products, has chosen to withhold its on-chain PoR, citing security concerns. Grayscale did release a letter from Coinbase Custody confirming Grayscale's cryptocurrency holdings, but it did not disclose the wallet addresses.
