CZ Provokes Unintended Panic Following An ‘Attacker’ On New Futures Platform

Published

on

“A market maker from a smaller futures exchange tried to attack @binance futures platform. NO ONE was liquidated, as we use the index price (not futures prices) for liquidations (our innovation). Only the attacker lost a bunch of money, and that was that.”

Just above is a tweet recently posted by the CEO of Binance, Changpeng Zhao in dispelling the concerns that a bad actor had just attacked the freshly-launched bitcoin futures platform.

This month alone has seen Binance form one of the two major BTC futures offerings to hit the market in September. The other being the Bakkt platform due on 23rd September, comes from the institutional trading platform, Bakkt.

The above quote was just the first in a series of tweets from the Binance CEO who initially warned that the platform’s futures were under attack from one of its own market makers.

“The attacker is a well-known account that trades with @binance,” CZ said. He continued, saying they “started their own futures exchange a few months ago. This was the 2nd attempt they tried. Shame!”

The attacker had reportedly crushed under the BTC/USD order book from $10,324 to $10,024, in what CZ said was the second such attempt at an attack.

The futures platform was launched in an invite-only setup mode following a user testing period earlier in the month. Two platforms were initially available with users voting for their preferred choice.

Aside from the criticism’s of both options’ technical characteristics, uptake was brisk with open interest reaching $150 million last week. 

We still don’t know who specifically CZ is talking about but a few hours after the accusations came forward from the CEO, it was confirmed that everything was a big misunderstanding.

“Had a chat with the client. It was an accident, due to a bad parameter on their side. Not intentional. All good now.”

Malta-based cryptocurrency exchange giant Binance has announced its partnership with Swiss firm Amun AG, an issuer of cryptocurrency exchange-traded products (ETPs), to launch a BNB ETP on the SIX Swiss Exchange’s regulated segment, with trading to begin today. Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao welcomed the announcement and said,

“Our partnership with Amun in launching the BNB ETP will provide investors with a new and regulated asset class with a unique dimension to utility tokens, making them more accessible and reliable through a traditional financial infrastructure. This will provide traditional investors access with diversified exposure and segue into the global cryptocurrency market and its innovative products.”

While BNB was initially created to pay for transaction fees on Binance exchange, it has since become a utility token with various use cases across several global blockchain ecosystems. With a market cap of over $2.5 billion, BNB is currently ranked as the 8th largest crypto-asset in the world.

To make it more accessible to wider institutional and retail markets, the BNB token is wrapped inside a traditional financial structure by the ABNB ETP, which is issued by Amun and administered on its Onxy platform. Hany Rashwan, CEO of Amun AG, commented,

“It’s been tremendous to watch the fast ascent of Binance from its humble launch in 2017 to the leading position it commands today. We are so excited to partner up with the world’s largest crypto exchange and make their native token accessible to institutional and retail investors in the most secure, cost-effective and regulated Swiss exchange-traded product.”

As of now, Amun has issued 7 other ETPs with cryptocurrencies forming the underlying asset, including Bitcoin, Ether, XRP and Bitcoin Cash.
