Whale Alert, a Twitter handle that provides information on large crypto transfers, posted a tweet pertaining to the transfer of Binance Coins [BNB] from Binance to an unknown wallet. This particular transfer soon caught the attention of Binance’s Changpeng Zhao.

Whale Alert is a well-known Twitter handle that tracks large cryptocurrency movements to and from exchanges, and wallet transfers. It tracks top cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], XRP, Tron [TRX], EOS, and Stellar Lumens [XLM]. The page also provides information on the top 100 ERC20 tokens.

The tweet in question was about the transfer of 28,888 BNB, approximately $514,643 from Binance to an “unknown wallet.” The tweet read,

To this, CZ tweeted that the transfer was, in fact, a donation to Binance Charity from Chain, a platform that allows users to buy, sell and pay with crypto. He said,

“This is a donation from @cryptocom to @BinanceBCF, no strings attached. Many thanks to @Kris_HK @bobbybaocrypto for the generous donation! More follow up tweets/posts to come, about these good hearted people! I wish @whale_alert could add Binance Charity addresses. 🙏

Soon after, Kris Marszalek, CEO of Chain, explained the reason behind the donation, stating that CZ’s keynote at Deconomy was a “powerful message” that needed to be “heard by the entire community.”

At the conference, CZ announced that 1 BNB donated would equate to 66 days of school for a kid supported by Binance Blockchain Charity Foundation. The CEO of Chain said,

“We’re all very fortunate to be in position to give back & it’s our responsibility to do so. Donate now!”

This was followed by CZ pointing out the price surge of Chain coin [CRO]. He said,

“Not sure if related, but  coin (CRO) is up 28% today while most of market is down. Maybe people are enlightened by your hard work, generosity, and noble purpose.”

According to CoinMarketCap, at press time, the cryptocurrency was trading at $0.0932 with a market cap of $440.49 million. The trading volume was recorded to be $3.63 million and the coin witnessed a surge of over 14% in the past 24 hours and 81% in the past seven days, a massive hike despite the majority of the market treading in the bear market.

To this, Kris Marszalek said,

“It was down when the whole market was up, so maybe there is some cosmic justice in here lol. Or, which I think is more likely, it’s your 300,000 followers learning about $CRO for the first time. Thank you for the shoutout, now let’s go back to building & delivering for our users!”

Tron [TRX], the eleventh largest coin on CoinMarketCap, has been crossing new milestones recently, with its block height and partnerships. Despite the coin performing rather poorly in a relatively bullish market, its adoption and the popularity of its DApps have made Tron lead the DApps market.

Tron’s popular proponent, Misha Lederman, shared with the community Tron’s recent achievement. Compared to Ethereum [ETH] and EOS, Tron registered a higher number of new users and active users. It noted 60k new users, while Ethereum reported 25K and EOS reported 9k. The active users on Tron’s DApps platform were 172k, followed by EOS with 170k and ETH with 54k.

Lederman in his tweet commented,

“#TRON growing fastest in terms of new users among Top 3 platforms:
New Users:
TRON 60K; #ETH 25K; #EOS 9K
Active Users:
TRON 172K; EOS 170K; ETH 54K”

He added that BitTorrent Speed’s launch in Q2 would provide Tron and BitTorrent users with BTT as an incentive for seeding, which might lead to a growth in the user base of TRX and BTT.
