Binance CEO: Bitcoin SV is a scam
Last week, the Chinese cryptocurrency exchange FCoin announced that it may not be able to pay 7,000–13,000 BTC that it owes users. The founder of the platform said that the exchange is not an exit scam and has not been hacked.
Binance CEO Zheng Zhao commented on the situation:
“On Chinese social media, I called FCoin a pyramid scheme in mid-2018. Their founder calls his own plan a “better invention than Bitcoin”. That did it for me. Who would say such a thing? About themselves? Except scammers,” — Zhao tweeted.
He also drew a parallel between FCoin and Craig Wright, creator of Bitcoin SV:
“Craig Stephen Wright is a fraud. Investing in a fraud never ends well. Time will tell,” — Binance CEO added.
