Binance CEO CZ: Rival Exchange ‘Likely’ Behind Interpol Arrest Rumor

CZ responds to fake news spread on Twitter that an international police warrant had been issued for his arrest.

No ‘Red Notice’ for CZ

Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) said a rival Centralized Exchange is probably to blame for creating or boosting fake news that an international warrant had been issued for his arrest.

“The latest Fud was only spread by crypto news outlets and KOLs, likely planted/sponsored by another exchange. Very petty,” CZ said.

On Monday, Crypto Twitter was abuzz about a photoshopped image of the Interpol website that purported to show a “Red Notice” for CZ. 

The fake news spread so widely that CZ made several responses to it, and a Binance spokesperson even told The Block that the rumor was “not true.”

CZ has had a tough time so far sticking to his New Year’s Resolution of ignoring FUD, fake news and attacks against Binance. Just last month, he faced fake news passed around Chinese social media that he had been shot by the FBI. That was more extreme than the Interpol rumor but was similarly based on a photoshopped image.
