Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao or CZ expressed his suspicions that Tesla CEO Elon Musk might be responsible for creating Bitcoin. However, recent tweets from his official account indicate that he has parted from his earlier intuitions. In an unexpected turn of events, the founder of one of the most popular crypto exchanges in the world has lashed out at Tesla’s CEO for trolling Bitcoin.
It should be noted that Binance native token BNN has taken back its position as the 3rd largest cryptocurrency by market cap, trading at $404 at press time. Nevertheless, CZ went on to call out Elon Musk, claiming that his meme-based tweets are irresponsible. He also claimed that Musk’s tweets had created a FUD in the market that has increased the volatility of the beacon cryptocurrency.

This time, the anime girl character with a Bitcoin icon now also has laser eyes.
