CZ Binance: I Would Like to See More Transparency From Terra’s Team

The CEO of the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance, Changpeng Zhao (CZ), said that he expects more transparency from Luna’s team following last week’s UST-LUNA fiasco.

  • Last week saw a top cryptocurrency literally go to zero in a matter of days.
  • UST – Terra’s algorithmic stablecoin – lost its peg and crashed to some $0.225. Because of how the protocol works, this created a massive arbitrage opportunity as users could burn 1 UST and receive $1 worth of LUNA.
  • So long as UST was below its peg, traders were able to print LUNA and dump it on the open market in a loop that saw a whopping 6.5 trillion enter circulation in a couple of days.
  • Naturally, this crashed the price of LUNA to literally $0 as most of the exchanges delisted the asset.
  • One of these exchanges was Binance. Now, CZ took it to Twitter to clarify his position on the matter.

  • CZ said that Binance didn’t participate in the second round of funding for Luna, and they didn’t acquire any UST. Binance Labs – the company’s investment arm – backed Terra with $3 million back in 2018 before UST was even a thing.
  • He also clarified that “the last few days, we tried hard to support the Terra community. in My tweets, I am simply pointing out the potential issues from my understanding.”

In this regard, I would like to see more transparency from them (read: Luna team). Much more! Including specific on-chain transactions of all the funds. Relying on 3rd party analysis is not sufficient or accurate. This is the first thing that should have happened.
