The Community Responds To STEEM-Sun Saga: “There Is A Clear Pattern Of Irresponsibility”

The STEEM saga is once again on the airwaves after the latest explanation by Binance CEO, Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, raises more questions than answers on Twitter.

He further urged CZ to be more careful when dealing with users funds – especially if not aware of what’s going on or risk to kill their holdings. He tweeted,
