“We are all Satoshi” Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao Opines

In a tweet on August 20, 2019, Changpeng Zhao (CZ), CEO of Binance cryptocurrency exchange said we are all Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin’s creator. CZ’s remark was made months after he had outrightly stated that Craig Wright, an Australian computer scientist is not Satoshi. Changpeng Zhao Believes We are All Satoshi According to Changpeng Zhao, everyone in the crypto community is Satoshi Nakamoto. However, CZ did not take it one step further to elaborate what he meant by the statement. Nonetheless, Binance’s CEO had stated on April 12, 2019, that Craig Wright is not Satoshi. CZ had even carried out his threat to delist Bitcoin SV, a cryptocurrency backed by Wright, from Binance exchange. The crypto community, on the other hand, had different things to say while responding to CZ’s tweet. Some individuals unanimously agreed that they are Satoshi. A user, for instance, took it one step further to outline that anyone who holds 0.00000001 satoshis qualifies to be Bitcoin’s creator. Another said: “Exactly: “Who is Satoshi? We are Satoshi. The adopters. The doers. The builders. The believers. The users. The educators. The advisors.” #WeAreOne Everything else is just noise.” Craig Wright is Not Satoshi On the contrary, other members of the crypto space affirmed that Craig Wright is not Satoshi. Wright, on the other hand, has made several attempts in the past to make people believe he is Bitcoin’s creator. In April this year, the businessman filed a series of lawsuits against several members of the crypto space including Peter McCormack, a podcaster. Of recent, Wright uploaded a paper titled “Payments Providers and Intermediaries as Defined in the Law of the Internet,” to the SSRN database. The document is dated October 30, 2007, and contains the first line of Bitcoin’s whitepaper. However, findings carried out by McCormack revealed that the paper was submitted on August 18, 2019, and not 2007 as dated. In the same vein, the Microsoft Office 365 that was used to type the document was launched in 2011 and could not be used in 2007. Thus, these misgivings leave room to question Wright’s claims whether he is Satoshi. Jonathan Warren Reveals Some of Wrights Documents in Trial are Fake On the same note, Jonathan Warren, developer of peer-to-peer messenger Bitmessage recently testified against Craig Wright in the David Kleiman case. Warren’s testimony in the U.S. Southern District of Florida court reveals that some of the documents Wright submitted during the trial are fake. The latter was attributed to the fact that the date October 22, 2012, in Wright’s documents were prior to the launch of Bitmessage, a software Wright claimed to have used to send documents to Kleiman.

Changpeng Zhao says Binance U.S. could launch in two months

Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance, said that the company could launch Binance U.S. within the next two months. Binance could enter the U.S. earlier than expected The world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume will be re-entering the U.S. market as a fully regulated and legally compliant company this year. The Malta-based Binance announced that it would stop serving U.S. customers on Sep. 12 to pursue plans of launching a more compliant fiat-to-crypto exchange later this year. But, with the news announced earlier in June, many speculated that it would take months before Binance’s new U.S. branch becomes fully operational. In an interview with Cheddar, Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance, said that the company’s U.S. corporation could launch much earlier than expected. “I don’t want to promise any fixed dates, but there’s a lot of work being done and there’s a lot of things going on in flux, but I would say in a month or two,” he said in the interview. The U.S. entity will be launching in partnership with BAM Trading Services. Zhao told Cheddar that the partnership will help Binance with regulatory compliance, as BAM appointed former Ripple executive Catherine Coley as CEO earlier in July. Rigorous regulations mean New York will be left out from Binance U.S. While it’s still unclear where exactly will Binance.US first roll out, Zhao said that it won’t initially launch in New York. Neither Binance nor BAM have managed to receive a BitLicense from the New York State Department of Financial Services and Coley declined to say whether the company will be applying for one. BAM is already nationally regulated by the U.S. Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) and other regulators such as the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC). But New York has notoriously rigorous regulations and the high cost of compliance could force Binance U.S. to avoid the State completely. However, Zhao seems optimistic about Binance’s future in the U.S. He told Cheddar that the U.S. has historically made “very clear regulations” and that any uncertainties in the space “will clear up.” Binance.US said that it is considering adding around 30 assets on the new platform. Binance, on the other hand, currently lists 150 different digital assets. Coley said that listing such a low number of coins is a way for the company to protect its users. In last week’s blog post, she explained that “the ease of issuing blockchain tokens and the perceived lack of regulation” could make these tokens vulnerable to abuse. So far, the exchange announced it is considering listing standard assets such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, and Litecoin. Other coins such as Chainlink, Stellar, and Decentraland mirror Coinbase’s offerings, while some unique crypto-assets include Holo, Cosmos, and Binance Coin.

Binance’s Changpeng Zhao addresses “KYC leak FUD,” 25 BTC bounty offered

News resurfaced that Binance’s know-your-customer (KYC) data had been hacked and uploaded into a Telegram group, dubbed “Find Your Binance KYC.” Several images of people holding their identities for the exchange’s verification process were posted in Telegram groups, causing customers to panic over an alleged hack. In response, CEO Changpeng Zhao addressed the allegations. It appears @binance was hacked. Many KYCs submitted on Feb 28, 2018 were stolen@cz_binance would you mind to elaborate on this? pic.twitter.com/cw5ZffqST8 — ๑ THE CRYPTO PANDA ๑ (@PandaofBinance) August 7, 2019 “Don’t fall into FUD” The cryptocurrency community woke up on Wednesday with the news that Binance had been hacked once again. This time, several Twitter accounts were reporting that KYC data from the biggest cryptocurrency exchange in the world, in terms of trading volume, was leaked. Despite the commotion, Binance’s founder and CEO Changpeng Zhao took to Twitter to warn the community against the “KYC leak FUD” and that the allegations were being investigated by the firm. Don't fall into the "KYC leak" FUD. We are investigating, will update shortly. — CZ Binance (@cz_binance) August 7, 2019 The founding partner at Primitive Ventures, Dovey Wan, commented that even though the rumor that was spreading throughout the cryptocurrency community was true, it was actually outdated. In fact, the accusations refer to a data breach that happened in late August 2018, which had been reported earlier this year.  It seems to be the same old Binance KYC hack dated back in 2018/8/24? Which was reported early this year? pic.twitter.com/rz7JKCTxk7 — Dovey Wan 🗝 🦖 (@DoveyWan) August 7, 2019 Along the same lines, Michael Gu (@boxmining) stated that the information going around about Binance’s KYC data was old news and that users should be extremely cautious about anyone claiming to help investigate if someone’s information was hacked. The YouTuber believes that groups attempting to provide information regarding the leak are likely bad actors. Binance KYC hack issue is old news. Becareful of any telegram groups / programs that help you "check" if you've been hacked – someone is up to no good @binance @cz_binance pic.twitter.com/22O47fDXOA — Boxmining (@boxmining) August 7, 2019 25 BTC bounty  Several hours after a series of Twitter accounts reported the news about the alleged KYC-data theft, Binance released an official statement to address its customers.  According to the statement, before exposing the information to the public and several media outlets, the hacker contacted Binance demanding 300 Bitcoin in exchange for withholding 10,000 photos of the exchange’s KYC data. After Binance refused to meet the hacker’s demands, he proceeded to upload the images into the Telegram group previously mentioned.  The firm’s security team found certain inconsistencies that lead them to believe that the data was not obtained directly from Binance’s servers but instead from a third-party vendor that used to be in charge of the KYC verification.  “At the present time, no evidence has been supplied that indicates any KYC images have been obtained from Binance, as these images do not contain the digital watermark imprinted by our system… On initial review of the images made public, they all appear to be dated from February of 2018, at which time Binance had contracted a third-party vendor for KYC verification in order to handle the high volume of requests at that time. Currently, we are investigating with the third-party vendor for more information.” Binance has now contacted different law enforcement agencies and is offering up to 25 BTC, approximately $300,000, to anyone who is able to provide relevant information that helps identify the hackers.

The Big Winners From Yesterday Over the past day, the top performing coin out of the 133 coins we are tracking was Wanchain, which offered a day-over-day return 90.53%. Rounding out the top four currencies for the day were Civic, Aion, and Tael, which provided holders with returns of 27.02%, 26.53%, and 22.7% for the day. These moves were quite significant, in the sense that they were well outside of the volatility each of the respective coins had seen for the past two weeks. Crypto brokers to trade the currencies mentioned here: Gate, Yobit, Stex, Binance, DDEX, ETHfinex The Crypto Big Picture Overall, the average change in coin price for the coins we’re tracking was up 3.1253%. On a more granular level, 65% of the coins we’re tracking were up while 35% of the coins were down. Below we can see the average daily change for the coins we are tracking our index over time. 34 coins are especially close to their 20 day moving average, and thus may be worth watching for technical traders who view the 20 day moving average as a key support/resistance level.

The exchange plans to open their market starting with BTC/USD perpetual swap contracts. According to the exchange website, contracts for additional coins will be added based on user demand. For market makers and takers, Digitex won’t charge for any transactions. The project plans to cover all operational costs by creating value/demand around the Digitex Futures (DGTX) token.

This will allow users to have 100% ownership of their funds at all times while still able to make real-time trades and lightning speed.

A date has not been set for the Digitex platform’s mainnet launch yet, but the project team has said that testnet trading is anticipated to last for two months.
