Binance CEO Comments On Being #1 Crypto Influencer, Takes Jab At Vitalik Buterin Who Was #3

Vitalik And CZ’s Twitter Beef Continues… Let’s Have A Closer Look At What The Two Have Been Up To

As per a recent poll released by Cryptoweekly, Changpeng Zhao, the outspoken CEO of crypto-exchange Binance has once again been ranked “1st amongst all individuals currently associated with the crypto sector”.

As was to be expected, some of the other top names included in the list were:

Lastly, other influential folks who also made it to the top-100 included Roger Ver, Barry Silbert, Jihan Wu, Michael Novogratz, Adam Back, Justin Sun, John McAfee, Charlie Lee, Cameron Winklevoss, Bobby Lee, Anthony Pompliano and Vinny Lingham

How Did The Beef Start?

As many of our readers may already know, a few months back during an interview with TechCrunch, Vitalik Buterin was quoted as saying:

“I definitely personally hope centralized exchanges burn in hell as much as possible.”

In response, CZ took the high road when he recently went on to say that he respected Vitalik immensely and thought that he was one of the most innovative people within the crypto arena today.

Not only that, but he also thanked the people responsible for placing him atop the aforementioned list and was also quoted as saying:

“I honestly don't think I am more influential than many of the guys on the list, like Vitalik, etc. I just say my mind and talk random sh!t most of the time. Well, Vitalik also says sh!t sometimes, like wishing people to burn in hell. Lol…”

In addition to this, he also added:

“Let’s not wish others to “burn in hell”. Let’s have a bigger heart, and appreciate the fact that we are part of an eco-system…”

Final Take

In closing, it is worth pointing out that Zhao recently released a long, detailed tweet wherein he stated quite sternly that “more decentralization did not directly equate to more safety”. In this regard, he also noted that decentralization was basically “a means, not an end” and that at the moment, a majority of people were clearly on the side of centralization.
