BitMEX Jokingly Jabs at Binance on Plagiarizing Its Documents For a Futures Trading Platform
The most recent spat between crypto exchanges happened between BitMEX and Binance. According to BitMEX, people from the other exchange plagiarized some content from documents had created.
BitMEX decided to be sarcastic and congratulated the other platform for it. The tweet also affirmed that the company was glad that the people at Binance enjoyed the paper so much that they copied it.
The original document created by BitMEX was used for the testnet of the company’s futures platform. Now, Binance also used it for the testnet of its own futures platform.
Even the CEO of BitMEX, Arthur Hayes, commented on the occasion. He joked that people who plagiarize should at least make a small effort so it doesn’t seem so obvious that they are stealing content.
The CEO of Binance, Changpeng Zhao, had no alternative but to confess that it was their fault. According to him, it was their mistake and he did not read the documents from BitMEX himself, so this part was not spotted by anyone.
His reaction was seen favorably in social media and some people have even defended Binance, affirming that it was not such a huge sin because people are launching new products practically all the time. Hayes seemed to be ok with the answer, posting a friendly meme as the answer.
Now, Binance is set to continue the launch of its futures testnet platform. The company has launched not one, but two platforms. The main idea was that people from the community could vote on which platform they liked the most. The platform with more votes would end up being chosen as the official one when the test phase is over.
