Where should mac binaries go

I recently downloaded vault (the binary) and was unsure where to put it for it to automatically be available on the echo $PATH

The documents they recommended were also shit.

So I googled and found that local binaries should go in: /usr/local/bin which is already part of the path

All I needed to do was:

cp ~/Downloads/vault /usr/loca/bin

and the binary became available
