  • Investor “CryptoWhale” has accused Binance of being irresponsible with their coin listings in recent times.

The decision has taken place after SUSHI fell from $9.5 to $1.13 in just five days.

Community outrage at Nomi 

Spencer Noon, the head of DTCC Capital, tweeted his thoughts.

Erik Voorhees, the CEO of, also took to Twitter to comment on the incident. 

Responding to the public outrage and allegation, Chef Nomi said that he did not “exit scam.” He further claimed that he deserved the dev fund as he created the project. 

The future of SushiSwap

The cryptocurrency community has positively reacted to the handover of SushiSwap to Sam Bankman-Fried. SBF said that SUSHI’s keys would be transferred to a multi-sig, which would later become decentralized. He also criticized Chef Nomi’s decision to step down abruptly. 

Investor calls out Binance’s irresponsible listing methodologies 

Binance is popularly known for responding quickly to changing market dynamics and increasing investor trading options on its platform. On most days, Binance lists multiple coins on its platform. In August alone, the exchange-listed 15 decentralized finance (DeFi) tokens. While some of these listings are genuine, investors often get scammed by other coins with zero trading volume.  

A well-known cryptocurrency investor who goes by the name “CryptoWhale” took to Twitter to say that Binance’s rushed decisions to list more coins are troublesome for cryptocurrency investors. They added that it is a big barrier to digital asset adoption as well. CryptoWhale asked Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance, to practice more accountability for investors and the cryptocurrency sector’s reputation. 

Zhao responded, stating that people should do their own research as several projects are experimental. CZ noted that while some will fail, others will succeed, and it is up to investors to invest wisely after doing some research.
