By CCN Markets: Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao got dragged on Twitter and was nominated for the Dumbest Crypto Tweet Award after he shared a story touting the popularity of Binance Coin, his company’s native token.
Many of Zhao’s followers expressed skepticism when he recounted an “interesting interaction” he had with a 14-year-old boy. CZ claimed the boy refused to discuss numbers in U.S. dollars and instead “insisted on BNB numbers.”
CZ then used that alleged incident to conclude that “the next generation will be Crypto Native.” It was also a humblebrag that Binance Coin (BNB) is gaining traction. Not surprisingly, many bitcoin fans clapped back.
Crypto Twitter: ‘This never happened’
One Twitter account nominated CZ for the “Dumbest Tweet of Crypto Twitter” today.
