The world of cryptocurrencies has seen a massive shift in sentiments after the recent bullish surge that enabled a lot of coins to climb up on the charts. The price hike also resulted in some cryptocurrencies changing ranks within the spectrum, with the main switch being EOS overtaking Litecoin [LTC] to become the fourth largest cryptocurrency.

In the midst of this shakeup, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao gave an update regarding a test on fetcher.ai that resulted in changes in the amount of BTT tokens transacted in the airdrop.

The Chief Executive Officer of Binance claimed that the error from the tester’s side has only affected a few buyers, who in turn got a few extra BTT tokens. He also stated explicitly that ‘funds are SAFU’. One Twitter user @DAXPartners commented,

“Haha not like is a problem to get some extra BTT.”

To this comment, CZ replied,

“ It is, some balances will be wrong. It’s being fixed now. Funds are #SAFU”

Another user had no qualms about the error, stating,

“Explains how my low bid got filled.”

Changpeng Zhao pointed out that,

‘Secondary beneficiaries, one reason to use an exchange, I guess!”

Tron’s BTT was also in the news recently when it was announced that the token will be paired with multiple stablecoins on Binance. The latest token from the Tron stables will be paired with stablecoins like Paxos, USD, and USDC. Ever the enthusiastic supporter of developments in the Tron ecosystem, Justin Sun, the CEO and Founder of Tron Foundation thanked CZ’s decision to add the pairs on Binance’s platform and also revealed another announcement. Sun tweeted,

“#BTT will be listed on @MBAexOfficial, you can deposit #BTT at 12:00 on Feb 14, 2019(SGT), withdraw $BTT at 12:00 on Feb 22, 2019(SGT). BTT/BTC, BTT/USDT, BTC/MDP will be available at 12:00 on Feb 15, 2019(SGT). #BitTorrent $BTT #TRON #TRX.”

Binance’s attempts to push cryptocurrencies into the mainstream realm and create an inclusive and safe environment was also evidenced when the exchange delisted CLOAK, MOD, SALT, SUB and WINGS. The company reasoned that the move was done over issues with commitment of the team, evidence of unethical/fraudulent conduct and level and quality of development activity.
