CNBC host Jim Cramer mentioned Binance is “way too sketchy” for him to make use of the platform.
The remark got here following a CNBC look by former Commodities Futures Buying and selling Fee (CFTC) Chair Tim Massad, during which Cramer had the chance to listen to Massad converse in regards to the trade.
“After listening to Tim Massad on last night’s show (former head of the CFTC) I would not do business with Binance. Just way too sketchy.”
Massad served as CFTC Chair between 2014 and 2017 and now works as a Analysis Fellow at Georgetown legislation faculty, specializing in monetary regulation and fintech.
Cramer’s put up was met with a number of replies making gentle of his phrases.
“Perfect, now I’m ready to deposit back to #Binance
Thanks Jim, best confirmation I could have gotten.”
Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) joined in by merely tweeting the “pray” emoji, presumably to thank Cramer for contributing to the pro-crypto trigger.
Cramer has a long-running fame for making incorrect calls. A 2013 CBS Information article cited a number of examples of his “poor ability to call stock sells.”
Jokingly, the writer floated the thought of launching a hedge fund known as Remarc (Cramer spelled backward) to commerce his reverse calls.
Ten years later, the Inverse Cramer ETF was launched in March – managing to beat the S&P500 in its first week.
CFTC goes after Binance

The 74-page grievance detailed a number of prices, together with serving to U.S. residents bypass blocks to accessing the platform, working an opaque company construction with no bodily location headquarters, and failing to stop and detect cash laundering and terrorism financing.
CZ mentioned the corporate doesn’t agree with the fees — which he put right down to “ an incomplete recitation of facts.”
