BitMEX vs Binance – Hayes and Zhao Locked in a Twitter War Over Claims of Innovation

Earlier today, Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao, also known as CZ, announced on Twitter that someone had tried to attack the Binance futures platform. CZ declared the attempt unsuccessful because Binance futures’ liquidation was tied to index price and not futures price. He also claimed that tying liquidation to index price and not futures price was Binance’s innovation. However, the false claim did not go unnoticed and BitMEX CEO, Arthur Hayes trolled CZ in a rather sarcastic tweet. 

Arthur Is Teaching “Copy-Pasting” In Singapore And Wants To Enrol CZ

In what could be described as the most savage retort of the day in the crypto community, BitMEX CEO, Arthur Hayes has sarcastically extended a hand of tutelage to Binance boss, Changpeng Zhao in order to teach him how to really “copy-paste” innovations.

Coingape recently reported that BitMEX, in a sarcastic tweet, had claimed that Binance had copy-pasted the documentation for their futures platform. Arthur Hayes, at that time, had retweeted the same with a meme and a remark directed at CZ.

CZ had responded to this by simply apologizing and maintaining that they didn’t read the documents, and promising to remove the plagiarized documents. He also uploaded the links for official documents of futures to be reviewed by BitMEX.
