Earlier today, Binance, the world’s number 1 cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, released their official stance on listings and partnerships on the platform. This was released on their Medium page and aims to provide clarity on the platform’s services.

The list of rules enforced by Binance starts off with the advanced disclosure of listing or partnerships. This is to prevent insider trading of any sorts, as a listing on Binance for any coin is bound to increase the price.

In their Medium page regarding the details of their policy, Binance emphasized the fact that the teams of ICOs cannot disclose if they will get listed on the exchange. This can only be done after news of the announcement breaks through their official channels. They also warned projects looking to break this rule, stating:

“If any information about a potential listing or partnership leaks out beforehand, we will put the listing or partnership on hold; possibly indefinitely.”

Continuing in the same vein, Binance stated that any unofficial claims of listings or partnerships are always false. They proceeded to mention that there is a “strict policy” put in place against the unauthorized use of the Binance name.

This seems to be a move by Binance against fake news of coin listings or partnerships. The move is targeted squarely at projects that claim that they will be listed or are a partner of Binance without their consent.

This is further cemented by their next policy, which applies the ‘Binance Application in Progress’ logo to the fitting cryptocurrencies. The logo is provided during the process of application to the exchange. However, they clarified the meaning of the logo, stating:

“Community members must be aware that this image does not imply any response, listing progress, or endorsement whatsoever.”

Binance has made it clear time and again that there is only one valid way to apply for listing on the exchange. There is a form that willing ICO’s CEOs must fill in order for the application to be reviewed. The CEO of Binance, Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao, has offered clarity on this multiple times.

In a blog post, he asked ICO leaders to not send them their whitepaper or ask for a meeting with him. He also explicitly stated that he does not have the time required to do an initial review of the product, as he is “not Superman”. Moreover, he also asked them to go through the form, as it is the only official way of applying to be listed on the exchange.

After clarifying the route of information to the exchange, Binance also warned the community to demonstrate “extreme caution” against fake communication.

This comes after the cryptocurrency community conspired for a long period of timing regarding Binance’s role in insider trading. The release of this official stance clears any confusion that the community might have regarding the same.

Bitcoin [BTC] is still going to $100,000, claims Heisenberg Capital’s Max Keiser

CNBC’s Crypto Trader Ran NeuNer, spoke to Max Keiser, Co-founder of Heisenberg Capital on the sidelines of the Magical Crypto Conference and discussed Bitcoin’s current trends.

Keiser said that he was bullish on Bitcoin in the long term, adding that he would be sticking by his “$100,000” prediction for Bitcoin. He stated,

“I never stopped make price prediction… I said it [Bitcoin] was going to a hundred thousand dollars and it was only a dollar and I said that all publicly… it is still going to a hundred thousand dollars”

He added that the timing of when Bitcoin would reach the mark was not important, but that it would outperform every other asset over the next 15 years. Additionally, he said that timing was only for people who were waiting to buy crypto at a better price and “that is a bad way to approach crypto.”

Keiser displayed his enthusiasm for crypto, commenting that, “Stack Satoshis… Stack SATs… you should be stacking SATs.” Giving his opinion on Bitcoin’s recent rally, Keiser said,

“I think that it goes back to when Federal Reserve issued a statement saying that they’re moving the policy to permanent quantitative easing… which means money printing without end. As you know Bitcoin is hard money, like gold, and it is going to respond well to hyperinflation and hyper-money printing.”

Further, Keiser claimed that Bitcoin bottomed when the Federal Reserve announced this a few weeks ago and that this was due to a couple of reasons. The first being Bitcoin’s upcoming halving which highlights the scarcity of Bitcoin. According to Keiser, the second reason was that the sellers were exhausted. All the above reasons, in totality, contributed to Bitcoin’s price rise, claimed Keiser.

Since Bitcoin has already proven itself as a store of value, Keiser remarked that it would be best to concentrate on Lightning Network, a layer-two scalability solution for Bitcoin and improve it as a medium of exchange.
