Don’t Get Left Behind. Embrace It. Who Could This Be Directed to?
In CZ Binance’s last statement in the trend post, he said, “Don’t Get Left Behind. Embrace It”. Who could CZ be referring to indirectly?
It is obvious that there is an ongoing trade war between China and the United States. The duos have utilized many weapons at their disposal. Now that China goes all-in into blockchain technology and cryptocurrency it once criticized and scrutinized shows that the new developments could be strategic.
United States in the other hand is still fighting tooth and nail to make all challenging digital currencies such as the underway Facebook’s Libra to subject to the sovereignty of the globally glorified and world’s reserve currency, US dollar.
CZ’s message coming at this time could be majorly meant for the United States and the countries that mount threats on the existence of digital currencies in the global market.
