Nouriel Roubini, who is famously known as ‘Dr.Doom’ is again in a circle of criticism – and this time, with Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao or CZ. While responding to CZ’s tweet, Mr.Roubini called him a ‘Jerk’.
Binance CZ v/s Bitcoin Critic
So, It all begun with a tweet posted by Crypto Godfather who is the CEO of Block Journal, a Blockchain Magazine – he shared a tweet, stating, Dr. Doom dropping the knowledge’ at the 2019 Asia Blockchain Summit, held on July 2nd – July 3rd at Tapei, Taiwan.

Just to remind, it is the same conference that many other crypto leaders, including Justin Sun from TRON, Charlie Lee from Litecoin, Arthur Hayes from BitMEX, CZ from Binance and many other known faces of crypto industry marked their presence. Moreover, it is the conference, where CZ announced Binance’s upcoming launch of Bitcoin Futures.
While responding to this Tweet, CZ commented ‘this is the 2nd conference in Asia I overlapped with him in 2019. Adding that he trolled, Does he have anything to do? Maybe he is the disguised Satoshi?
For a guy who doesn’t see the future of #crypto, but yet, spends days attending crypto conferences. This is the 2nd conference in Asia I overlapped with him this year. Does he have anything to do? Maybe he is the disguised Satoshi???
To note, Nouriel Roubini is the economist and New York University Stern School of Business professor who often seen criticizing Bitcoin – in fact, he is called as a renowned bitcoin critic. CZ’s comment was quickly gotten Roubini’s attention who in return reacted rashly at CZ and said “The most pathetic critique I have heard about me is from this Jerk CZ. In his words;
The most pathetic critique I have heard about me is from this jerk @cz_binance; I was chosen as the 3rd most influential person in the world in the crypto space coz I am the only honest critic of this shitty space who isnt talking his book 24/7 the way you do snake oil peddler https://t.co/t3BlZ2aGpH

And it didn’t stop here, CZ again swipes at Nouriel with a joke asking who is the Jerk here.?
A guy who builds what he believes in? Or A guy who goes to crypto conferences just to call bitcoin a scam?
This is not the first time- and definitely not the last one also – after this open troll, Nouriel Roubini is set to debate with BitMEX founder Arthur Hayes on July 3rd, 2019 which was announced by Roubini himself on his Twitter wall. He claims that BitMEX volume is fake, adding a note on BitWise study falls into exchange manipulation.
How can one believe ANY of these figures when 95 percent of all bitcoin transactions on a typical exchange are fake? Fake-coins, shit-coins, fake-transactions, fake-pricing. The only true thing in crypto space is manipulation, pump n dump, front-running, wash trading, etc… https://t.co/i43cPwjFX2
