Udi Wertheimer, an independent developer and a “Bitcoiner” posted a series of tweets taking a jab at Binance Chain, which is slated to launch on April 23.

According to Wertheimer’s tweets, Binance has not updated the “source code” or “binaries” for the Binance Chain; and despite enquiring about it on the official telegram group of Binance, he was offered any source code.

He said that Binance recommended users, who want to migrate tokens to Binance chain, use the official SDK, which will be done via official HTTP API using Binance’s trusted servers. Binance DEX, which will make use of the Binance Chain, also has no source code or binaries which are open source. He stated:

“There’s almost nothing there. So I looked for the source code. Guess what, THERE’S NO SOURCE CODE. They only have binaries, and only for a light client, no full node at all!”

He commented on the Binance Chain and the Dex that all Binance did was release an “app that connects to the API of your new centralized infrastructure”. In addition, the “Light Node” is a program that helps users access and interact with the Binance Chain in a secure and decentralized manner; the source code for which is “closed source” according to Wertheimer.

Wertheimer further added:



“Just releasing the binaries won’t be enough, and there’s no indication I could find anywhere that they intend to release the source code, like, ever. In any case, regardless of what may happen in the future, what’s released so far amounts to nothing more than a new website.”

A Twitter user, @bag_holder commented:

“Lol seems like a very Chinese thing to do. “BORROW” IP, make some edits, then keep it to oneself”

Another Twitter user, @thecryptostefan commented:

“There’s a branch with the full node implementation, no? I thought they just hadn’t merged it to master yet when I was looking last night. I think it’s the prerelease branch or one of those.”
