The crypto market recorded a heavy sell-off during the last 24 hours, impacting several altcoins’ performance. Binance’s CEO seized the opportunity to state that no one really knows what influences this market.
In a June 10 tweet, Binance CEO Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao highlighted how human emotions sway the market. According to him, many people transact in a market, and everyone may have their reasons. During the last 24 hours, nearly $400 million was liquidated, with several altcoins recording double-digit losses.
False Narrative: Binance’s Fiat Conversion
Zhao stated that rumors that Binance converted its crypto holdings to fiat were a false market narrative. According to him, while the exchange’s fiat and stablecoin reserves for covering short-term salaries and expenses have decreased, its cryptocurrency reserves have increased over the past months, weeks, or days, depending on the timeframe considered.
His statement comes on the heels of the recent regulatory scrutiny that has bedeviled the exchange. Over the past week, the U.S. SEC sued Binance, Zhao, and its subsidiary, Binance.US, over violations of federal security laws. This news led to a net outflow of $3.1 billion in the past week, according to DeFiLlama data
CZ Address Robinhood Dumping Rumors
On the second narrative that Robinhood could dump $1.3 billion worth of altcoins on the market, the Binance CEO stated that he had no idea about that. “No idea. You probably know more than me,” CZ tweeted.
On June 9, Robinhood said it would remove ADA, SOL, and MATIC from its platform on June 27. The crypto trading firm’s decision is coming on the heels of the SEC’s decision to classify several digital assets as securities.
Following the news, on-chain investigator Lookonchain reported that several whales began moving the impacted tokens across exchanges. One whale transferred over 5700,000 SOL worth $8.2 million to Binance, Kraken, and Coinbase.
LookOnChain noted that several institutional investors were dumping Polygon’s MATIC, referencing Cumberland and Jump Trading’s deposit to exchanges.
Zhao also highlighted other popular narratives in the market like the “U.S. ban” and “China/HK unban.” According to him, the two emotions every trader must master in any market are “greed” and “fear.”
He advised his community to manage their risk, assuring users that the Binance platform would continue to work smoothly.
