CZ Blasts Justin Sun’s Actions, Sun Exclaims ‘Sorry,’ Vows Immediate Change!

In a week where the Federal Reserve announced the tenth consecutive interest rate hike since March 2022, limiting crypto’s growth, one of the highlights from Crypto Twitter was Binance CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao calling out Tron CEO Justin Sun. Zhao flagged Sun’s $56 million token transfer to the exchange, which raised suspicions of the Tron founder’s possible intention to farm a soon-to-be-launched token called SUI.

Zhao tweeted a warning to Sun, “Our team told Justin, if he uses any of these to grab the LaunchPool Sui token, we will ‘take action against it’. SMH. Binance LaunchPool are meant as air drops for our retail users, not just for a few whales. On the bright side, blockchains are transparent…”

Sun quickly responded with an apology, calling the transfer a mistake. Tron representatives later confirmed that the refund had been executed.

Zhao’s claim that Binance’s launchpool airdrops are “for our retail users” has broader implications when considering the not-so-retail-friendly token distribution of SUI, as highlighted by crypto analyst Tom Dunleavy (@Dunleavy89).

Crypto researcher and critic Molly White (@Molly0xFFF) also pointed out the “super weird reporting” surrounding Binance’s claims that someone with links in Congress is using ChatGPT to launch a smear campaign against the exchange.

Adding to the conspiracy theories floating around Crypto Twitter, Democrat 2024 Presidential hopeful Robert F. Kennedy Jr. speculated on a top-down “war on crypto” that could be connected to recent collapses at Silicon Valley Bank, Silvergate, and Signature. Kennedy seems to be positioning himself as a crypto-friendly candidate.
