Ex-Binance CEO CZ’s X account restricted

Ex-Binance CEO CZ’s X account restricted

X (formerly Twitter) has restricted the account of ex-Binance CEO Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao.
The Binance founder stepped down on Tuesday after pleading guilty to DOJ charges.

Binance founder and former CEO Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao’s X account has been restricted. While its not clear why the ex-Binance chief’s X (formely Twitter) is restricted, the move comes as a surprise to many.

On Thursday, US prosecutors wanted CZ prevented from leaving the US for the UAE, with allegations that he was a flight risk. This is after he pleaded guilty to money laundering charges and was released on a $175 million bond.

Binance will also pay a $4.3 billion penalty as settlement with the US Department of Justice (DOJ).

After he stepped down, CZ was replaced by Richard Teng, the former head of Abu Dhabi Global Market, UAE.

Update:

CZ’s account restriction was due to several name changes, which is what he noted in a comment as he urged against FUD.

Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃
