The CEO of Binance back against Craig Wright

Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance, today posted a new Twitter post against Craig Wright.

Quoting his own tweet of February 17th in which he said FCoin was a pyramid scheme, the CEO of Binance stated today – once again – that Craig Wright is also fraud and only time will prove it, exactly as he was right about the exchange.

What does Fcoin have to do with Craig Wright?

FCoin was an exchange that closed its doors a few weeks ago because, due to some losses amounting to $70 million, it announced that it was no longer able to pay bitcoins to its users.

For this reason, the CEO of TRON, Justin Sun, who had declared himself a friend of Zhang Jian, the founder of FCoin, had decided to give 1000 BTT to those who had lost funds due to the closing of the exchange.

In any case, it’s not the first time CZ has taken on Craig Wright, seeing that Binance delisted Bitcoin SV in April of 2019 following Wright’s relentless efforts in self-proclaiming himself as Satoshi Nakamoto, the inventor of Bitcoin.

The reason for the comment by the CEO of Binance

The reason for today’s post is not very clear, besides the fact of reiterating how controversial the figure of Wright is (hence his nickname Faketoshi).

Perhaps the comment of Binance’s CEO is due to the fact that recently London hosted a monothematic conference dedicated to BSV, during which Wright didn’t stop saying he’s Satoshi. Or because Faketoshi has apparently been spreading a falsehood about the death of Dave Kleiman who would have died of heart problems and not of an overdose.
