Neuman also hinted at “abnormal” activities in the Binance ecosystem, urging users to act now lest they suffer in the wake of calamities that have befallen crypto trading platforms in the past. In his words:
We cannot speculate about anything that is happening at Binance. We would love to believe everything and that funds are safe. However, we can tell you what we are hearing about Binance is abnormal. When it comes to exchanges, you do not wait around to find out whether there is fire behind all that smoke.
The post reiterates the importance of self-storage, putting your crypto in cold wallets as opposed to storing your holdings on exchanges.
Always the most secure option is self-storage in a cold wallet with your recovery/seed phrase either memorized or stored VERY securely.— Quod Erat Demonstrandum (@LesleyW39947656) October 27, 2023
Nevertheless, it is impossible to forget about how Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) has been active in fighting fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD). CZ has even made a name for himself with his signature “4” to dispel and quell concerns about this demeanor.
As Neuman listed, the exchange has suffered many reports, from ones relating to a clampdown by regulators to law violation, alleged fraud, employee retrenchment, and closing shop in different jurisdictions. Regardless, Binance has continued to hold onto its forte, still boasting the largest trading volume in the market today.
If Neuman’s speculation is not true, then it could be dismissed as another FUD shot targeted against Binance. To some, however, the announcement could be a calculated business plan to draw users to the Casa wallet for storage of their cryptocurrencies.
