Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) has deleted his doubtful tweets about the validity of the Bitcoin (BTC) holdings of rival exchange Coinbase (NASDAQ:COIN), sparking reactions from the crypto community on Twitter.

CZ doubts Coinbase’s Bitcoin holdings

In line with the exchanges embracing transparency, Coinbase Custody CEO Aaron Schnarch on Monday published a report revealing that the company held 635,000 BTC on behalf of the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC).

In reacting to the post, CZ took to Twitter to share a four-month-old headline about Coinbase holding less than 600,000 BTC. According to the now-deleted post, CZ was merely quoting “news reports.”

Crypto Twitter reacts to CZ’s posts

Although CZ acknowledged that “Glassnode probably has more up-to-date data” his claims weren’t welcomed by the crypto community on Twitter. Shortly after his tweet, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong wrote on Twitter:

.tweet-container,.twitter-tweet.twitter-tweet-rendered,blockquote.twitter-tweet{min-height:261px}.tweet-container{position:relative}blockquote.twitter-tweet{display:flex;max-width:550px;margin-top:10px;margin-bottom:10px}blockquote.twitter-tweet p{font:20px -apple-system,BlinkMacSystemFont,"Segoe UI",Roboto,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif}.tweet-container div:first-child{ position:absolute!Important }.tweet-container div:last-child{ position:relative!Important }

Will Clemente, co-founder of Reflexivity Research stated that CZ’s tweet wasn’t a great look. Analyst, trader, and investor @360_trader tweeted that “CZ just proved today he’s all about one thing… his empire.”

Many argued that CZ failed to do his due diligence before tweeting as Coinbase’s “exchange and custody wallets are separate.” CZ reacted to Armstrong’s tweets by deleting his earlier tweet, stating that the crypto industry needs to work together. He tweeted:

On the Flipside

  • The claims from CZ come just hours after it was reported that Coinbase’s (COIN) stock prices plummeted to an all-time low as crypto markets crashed.

Why You Should Care

The comment from CZ was frowned upon because the Binance boss failed to confirm before putting out another FUD in the middle of a severe bear market.
