The CEO of Binance, Changpeng Zhao has made clear his stance in the Ripple XRP community with an affirmative tweet that shows he is in full support of the growth and progress achieved by the XRP token.
CZ who revealed that he was recently referred to as the “leader of the XRP army” had highlighted the importance of the XRP’s newest arrival on the Binance exchange official wallet, the trust wallet saying ;
“The XRP army should be happy about this. Someone called me the leader of the XRP Army” during my live AMA lol…”
The tweet referenced the inclusion of the XRP to the Trust wallet which the exchange acquired back in July 2018. On the 12th of March, the Binance team made a press release following the inclusion of credit card purchases and support for the XRP token. This means that cryptocurrency users can send, receive, exchange and store the XRP token on the Binance Trust Wallet.
It would be interesting to note that CZ had been eyeing the Ripple XRP token from as far back as February when he tweeted “can’t argue the XRP army is strong”. The CEO who has been very vocal about his admiration for the XRP network might have stepped on some Ether users foot when one Twitter user suggested that CZ seems to be anti-ether and pro-xrp.
This isn’t a surprising suggestion as CZ, despite noting that he isn’t against any cryptocurrency has made very little comments about the Ethereum network and its native token Ether. However, the CEO was quick to refute that suggestion with a tweet that read “I am pro all top crypto”.
McAfee Peeved After News Outlets Twist His Words on Epstein
After releasing an ‘Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself’ token on the McAfee DEX, and posting to Twitter repeatedly concerning the subject, John McAfee now feels that he is being misrepresented in multiple online news publications over his views on the high-profile and controversial death.
It was hard to miss, but as BeInCrypto recently reported, the eccentric network security expert released a unique digital asset (called $WHACKD) to commemorate the fact that, in McAfee’s opinion, ‘Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself.’ The token has been released for free and comes with the unique gimmick in that one in ten transactions get routed to a burn address, or “whacked.”
While this was clearly created as a message, it was hardly the only way Mcafee signaled his view. He also took to Twitter to post a video in which he made his positions very clear:
Only now, it seems as though media outlets are mixing up whether McAfee believes the man was murdered or is in fact still walking this earth. Showing examples of multiple headlines, McAfee has proclaimed his frustration with these oversimplified and frankly conflicting interpretations:
McAfee looks to be asserting that his only message was focused on the ‘didn’t kill himself’ aspect and not what his current condition is now. He even entertains the possibility that Epstein never existed in the first place:
The response from the community was largely supportive and, of course, included a flood of Epstein memes and accusations of bias in the media.
It may be true that some outlets aren’t appreciating the subtlety of McAfee’s message here, and are instead looking for a more sensational headline. That being said, no one who has been watching the situation unfold through Twitter has likely misinterpreted what the cryptocurrency renegade was getting at.

Crypto Analyst Flips Bullish on Bitcoin Overnight – BTC, XRP, Ethereum Forecasts
The overall crypto market is a mixed bag today, with BTC, ETH and XRP in the red. Here’s a bird’s-eye view from COIN360 at time of publishing.
Crypto analyst Scott Melker of Texas West Capital says he’s just entered a ‘heavy’ position on Bitcoin after spotting a bullish divergence.
A bullish divergence happens when an asset hits a lower low while an indicator such as the RSI or MACD forms a higher low. Melker stresses the high volatility involved in crypto trading and says he’s managing his risk.
Jim Wyckoff, a former technical analyst for Dow Jones Newswires, has a different take.
He says the bears appear to have taken over for now. He expects BTC to keep moving sideways or trend lower in the short term.
“Prices are trending lower from the October high and the bears have gained the near-term technical advantage, to suggest sideways-to-lower price action in the near term. Stay tuned.”
As for Ethereum, Josh Olszewicz of Brave New Coin says ETH may be targeting a rise to $260 this month.
But in order to do so, it will have to rise above resistance at around $190.
Meanwhile, Eric Choe, who won CME Group’s annual trading competition in 2016, says he remains bullish on XRP, despite its drop-off in 2019.
Back in June, Choe said he placed a big bet on XRP in order to shoot for an early retirement.
Since that investment, the price of XRP has dropped from about $0.4049 to its current price of $0.2719.
