Elon Musk Lashes Out at Binance CEO Over Dogecoin (DOGE) Customer Handling

Published

on


Elon Musk, the richest man on earth and a well-known Dogecoin (DOGE) proponent has come out in defense of the community against Binance. The global crypto exchange recently put a 2-week withdrawal freeze for the meme currency after a software glitch in the exchange platform executed a large number of Doge transactions from a year ago.

Musk has lashed out at the CEO of the world’s largest exchange, calling his Dogecoin customer handling shady. The shady dealing Musk is referring to is related to several Binance users who have claimed that the exchange initiated several DOGE transactions from their account without their consent and now the exchange is asking for those Dogecoins which are not reflected in the user’s accounts.

Binance’s official Twitter account responded to the allegations from Musk and attached a thread detailing the issue with Dogecoin transactions. However, Musk dismissed it saying the customers should not suffer because of the mistakes of the exchange.

Many customers have claimed to receive an email from the exchange which threatens to suspend the withdrawal function if the user doesn’t return the said amount of DOGE. Dogecoin developers reportedly reached out to Binance to resolve the issue and claimed the glitch triggered old transactions from years ago that were stuck due to low fees. Doge Developers took to Twitter to explain the whole issue in a tweet series and explained that the exchange was contacted months ago for the fix.

Earlier, Peter Brandt, the veteran trader had a similar response to one of Changpeng Zhao’s tweets where he accused the crypto platform of unethical practices as well. When one of the users enquired about Brandt’s uncharacteristic response to a harmless tweet, he said what Binance was doing with its customers on the platform, people would have been jailed for it. He explained,

“Actually was in Corn pit. Well aware of the abuses of the auction markets. But my gripe vs. crypto exchanges goes far deeper than bad fills – it deals with trading against customer orders way outside the daily range and not reporting the price discovery. We’d have been jailed”

Dogecoin Trades in Green as Binance Lands Into Another Controversy

Musk is also known as Dogefather for his unconditional love and support for meme currency and today’s tweet calling out Binance’s wrongdoing against DOGE customers helped the meme currency trade in green after nearly a week of the bearish downturn.

DOGE was trading at $0.234 with a 5% surge in price over the last 24-hours. The meme currency was trading at $0.2157 when Musk posted his tweet, and the price bounced within minutes to trade in the green.

Binance Coin Price An Inch Away From Its ATH, Will BNB Price Hit $1K By EOY

Published

on

After a slight flip from the bearish divergence, for a couple of days, the market appears to have fallen into the same well. Most of the altcoins including the dominant crypto Bitcoin are slumping down, yet trying hard to jump above $58K. However, after BTC & ETH, the 3rd largest crypto Binance coin is making a very drastic move without any noise and may hit its previous ATH well before both of them. 

BNB price always preferred to be low-key with massive volatility so that the asset diminishes the distance to the ATH. The asset was still attempting hard to recover the losses incurred from May, yet the September drain dragged the asset below $350. However, without wasting much time, the Binance coin initiated with a strong upward trajectory to ignite a bull run towards its ATH. 

BNB Price Analysis

Considering the recent moves made by the asset, one of the popular analysts believes the price to hit $750- $850 in the short-term. However, the potential target still remains around $1000 as predicted ever since the beginning of the bull run during the first half of 2021.

The upward trajectory can be clearly seen in the chart mentioned by the analyst ever since the trend flipped at the beginning of Q4. In an attempt to smash the ATH, the BNB price got rejected multiple times around $660. Yet sustained much above the 200-day MA and the uptrend line. And hence after a minute retest, the price may break through the newly formed resistance levels close to $660. 

With a strong pierce through these levels, new ATH beyond $700 may be quite possible. Moreover, maintaining the current pace, the BNB price may also achieve the targets close to $800. And hence the yearly target for Binance Coin price still remains intact at $1000 and the possibilities of achieving appear to be more compared to BTC price or ETH price.

Binance Coin, which is the native crypto asset of the Binance ecosystem, hit its current record high of around $687 in May of 2021 and is trading at $636 at time of writing.

The trader is also bullish on the core crypto asset of the Ethereum-based decentralized finance protocol Curve DAO Token (CRV).

Smart Contracter says that when paired against Bitcoin, CRV appears primed to break out from a 400-day range.

“400-day CRV breakout on the BTC pair underway. I’m ready for the fireworks.”

CRV is trading at 0.00009613 BTC ($5.65) at the time of writing.

Smart Contracter says that the DeFi token is likely on the verge of surging on the Bitcoin chart after an accumulation phase that had lasted over 365 days.

“CRV daily bull flag breakout on the BTC pair plus 12 month+ accumulation. Valhalla awaits.”

Floki Inu ($FLOKI) Community Uses Petition to Request Binance Listing

Published

on

The community behind the meme-inspired cryptocurrency Floki Inu ($FLOKI) has started a petition asking leading cryptocurrency trading platform Binance for a listing on it. Getting listed on such an exchange would significantly improve the cryptocurrency’s liquidity.

Through a petition created on Change.org that has already gathered over 14,000 signatures, the cryptocurrency’s community has pointed out that in just four months, $FLOKI is one of the top 70 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization, with a market cap of $2.6 billion.

The petition adds that the cryptocurrency has grown to have over 310,000 holders and a trading volume of over $280 million, despite not being listed on any major centralized exchange like Coinbase or Binance.

Notably, the cryptocurrency’s rival meme-inspired crypto Shiba Inu ($SHIB), has been listed on Binance, Coinbase, Huobi, KuCoin, Bitfinex, and other major cryptocurrency trading platforms. SHIB has, however, resorted to a petition to be listed on another exchange, the commission-free trading platform Robinhood. That petition has garnered over 500,000 signatures.

In its petition, Floki mentioned its “super aggressive marketing campaigns worldwide” which it claims is helping it become a “more recognized cryptocurrency compared to many cryptocurrencies in the top 10 [by market capitalization].”

As reported, FLOKI’s price surged last month after it launched a campaign on London’s public transport system with the slogan “Missed Doge? Get Floki” in a bid to “legitimize” the cryptocurrency and increase the “confidence of the average consumer” to buy it, according to the project’s head of marketing, which went by Sabre.

That campaign triggered a cryptocurrency ad crackdown that saw London’s transport authority, Transport for London, reveal concerns about the ads as these were promoting a little-known, unregulated financial asset that they claim could be open to manipulation such as pump-and-dump schemes. Floki Inu’s team hit back, saying the crackdown was “an attack against cryptocurrency and against the people’s freedom of choice.”

Notably, the Floki Inu community has also created a petition to get listed on the Nasdaq-listed cryptocurrency trading platform Coinbase. That petition has been signed by over 30,000 users at press time.
