Binance DEX faces criticism over geo-blocking users; Magical Crypto Conference’s Whale Panda and others weigh in

Published

on

Binance DEX received a lot of attention recently due to the sheer number of projects being listed on it. Moreover, the rise in the popularity of these projects and the price of tokens prompted popular proponents of the crypto-verse to opine on the matter.

A new update from Binance DEX geo-blocking users has once again attracted criticism over how it could affect the collective market.

However, like BitMEX, Binance’s rules can also be easily overcome by using a VPN, raising questions over the ‘decentralized’ nature of the exchange.

Whale Panda tweeted:

“Reminder that it was never a DEX so stop calling it a DEX. It’s just a word they used to pump $BNB, it was never meant to be decentralized.”

Hasu, another prominent, but anonymous user commented:

“Doesn’t non-custodial solve like 95% of issues that centralized exchanges have?”

The comment suggested the use of Arwen, however, CZ replied:

“try Arwen and let us know how the experience compares.”

According to the update, Binance’s decentralized exchange

would start geo-blocking 29 countries, similar to the rules being adhered by other centralized exchanges, like BitMEX.

Vladislav Ginko, a Twitter user, commented:

“Complying with biased US regulations based on WH obsession that US sanctions introduced without any US court decision must be complied everywhere in the world, not only in USA. looks not only that such crypto exchange is not decentralized but it abides unlawful restrictions.”

The topic of discussion was still hot and an official response from Binance is awaited. As suggested by The Block, this move could be connected to “the SEC charging the founder of decentralized exchange EtherDelta with operating an unregistered securities exchange in November. Binance theoretically could not prevent anyone from issuing a security token”.

A Reddit user, mycryptotradeacount, defended the exchange’s move:

“Binance has never claimed that their exchange was goung to be fully decentralised, even CZ tweeted about this a few times saying that it is not going to be a DEX.”

Weibo Kick Justin Sun Off Platform For Violating Community Provisions

Published

on

  • Justin Sun has just had is account on Weibo deleted this week.
  • The co-founder of Binance, Yi He also lost his account.
  • The Chinese social network believed it was right to delete both of the businessman’s accounts on the platform.

Just

in Sun, the founder and CEO of TRON has just had is account on Weibo deleted this week. Sun wasn’t the only one who has his profile deleted thought as the co-founder of Binance, Yi He also lost his account.

Why Did This Happen?

According to CCN, the Chinese social network believed it was right to delete both of the businessman’s accounts on the platform. This was because the two allegedly violated community provisions. 

If you’ve ever had you’re account deleted on Weibo then you’ll likely be familiar with the following message but if you were to go on Sun or Yi He’s account, you would be greeted with this:

“The account has been blocked due to violations of laws and regulations and the relevant provisions of the Weibo Community Convention.”

Following this, the TRON community was worried that the deletion of their CEO’s account was going to have an impact on the price or in one way or another on the TRON network. In an attempt to calm everyone down, Sun took to Twitter saying he would fix the issues quick and efficiently.

“TRON is super safu! Just follow me on @justinsuntron. We have a direct channel to Weibo and will get this resolved asap.”

Scams

As previously reported by CryptoDaily, according to the DigiByte (DGB) founder Jared Tate, TRON is actually just a government scam. On top of this, he adds that the token’s listing on the Binance.US platform threatens to undermine faith in American regulatory bodies. Tate reacted this way to recent news that Binance.US would be giving TRON a listing.

Tate was very clear saying, “If American regulators allow @BinanceAmerica to continue operating let alone list the biggest scam in crypto history fronted by the Chinese government to dupe unknowing American citizens there will be an unprecedented loss of faith in our lawmakers.”

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. For more news on this and other crypto updates, keep it with CryptoDaily!

CZ Binance Offers a Hand to Jack Dorsey, Says He Must Launch Decentralized Social Media ASAP

Published

on

After Twitter’s chief announced his Bluesky project, Justin Sun had his account on Chinese Twitter closed – now CZ says Binance will help build Bluesky-

As reported by U.Today, the head of Twitter is working on a new project for building a decentralized protocol that could be used by social media, which he intends to also use for Twitter – Bluesky.

They say that whatever happens, always happens on time – now the Chinese government shuts down Justin Sun’s account on the largest local social media Weibo (the Chinese Twitter) and the head of Binance encourages Dorsey to get on with Bluesky.

He says the community may need decentralized social media real soon. He also offers to help with that. The Weibo accounts of CZ and Binance are still active, unlike that of Justin Sun.

Jack Dorsey eager to decentralize Twitter

A day ago, U.Today wrote about a new ambitious project of the Jack Dorsey to make his company decentralized. In a series of tweets, among other reasons for that he cited a necessity to clamp down on fake news and misleading information that is often spread via his social media venue.

A top Twitter executive Parag Agrawal already is already hiring a team to work on the project.

CZ wants to see Bluesky up and running

The chief of Binance known as CZ is up for this project to be implemented, especially after the recent news of Justin Sun’s account of Weibo shut down. The latter is

the result of the recent public statement made by Xi Jinping about embracing blockchain but not crypto.

Now, CZ urges Jack Dorsey to get on with the development and offers him a hand.

Tron CEO invites his Chinese fans to follow him on Twitter

After getting his Weibo account shut down, Justin Sun posted a tweet, inviting Chinese-speaking Tron users to follow him on Twitter instead of Weibo.

Sun explains that English is the main language of this social network, however, they can use the local embedded translation service to understand what everyone writes about.

Bluesky under fire of criticism

Some, however, are unhappy with Jorsey’s initiative to decentralize Twitter for fear it will get even more centralized. One of them is the founder of Atlantic Financial and Chainstone Labs, Bruce Fenton.

Taking into account the goal of Dorsey to get rid of fake news and misleading info, Fenton’s concern about people getting banned on Twitter and this platform being quite biased already, may seem justified.

  • Binance enters partnership deal with P2P platform for buying Bitcoin for fiat.
  • The development may support cryptocurrency mass adoption in the future.

Binance has partnered with Latamex to provide easier access and more options to people throughout regions for the purchase of cryptocurrency with fiat in a fast and secure manner.

A push for mass adoption

In the long run, this development may bode well for the cryptocurrency industry as

it makes a case for broader mass adoption. Once people are offered simple procedures that do not require extensive knowledge about the way cryptocurrency works, they are more likely to buy their first Bitcoin and join the industry. In other words, closer integration with traditional finance makes digital assets more accessible for a broad public. 

Binance partnership with Paxful will bring Bitcoin to people in 167 countries, which may translate in the strong growth of demand and pave the way for Bitcoin’s price increase.
