The CEO of Binance, Changpeng Zhao has made clear his stance in the Ripple XRP community with an affirmative tweet that shows he is in full support of the growth and progress achieved by the XRP token.
CZ who revealed that he was recently referred to as the “leader of the XRP army” had highlighted the importance of the XRP’s newest arrival on the Binance exchange official wallet, the trust wallet saying ;
“The XRP army should be happy about this. Someone called me the leader of the XRP Army” during my live AMA lol…”
The tweet referenced the inclusion of the XRP to the Trust wallet which the exchange acquired back in July 2018. On the 12th of March, the Binance team made a press release following the inclusion of credit card purchases and support for the XRP token. This means that cryptocurrency users can send, receive, exchange and store the XRP token on the Binance Trust Wallet.
It would be interesting to note that CZ had been eyeing the Ripple XRP token from as far back as February when he tweeted “can’t argue the XRP army is strong”. The CEO who has been very vocal about his admiration for the XRP network might have stepped on some Ether users foot when one Twitter user suggested that CZ seems to be anti-ether and pro-xrp.
This isn’t a surprising suggestion as CZ, despite noting that he isn’t against any cryptocurrency has made very little comments about the Ethereum network and its native token Ether. However, the CEO was quick to refute that suggestion with a tweet that read “I am pro all top crypto”.
Meanwhile, the likes of Ran NeuNer, a highly pronounced member of the XRP army has also been very vocal about the tokens growth. NeuNer who had previously urged crypto users to boycott BCH and BTC for XRP has recently taken to Twitter to commend the XRP for its flexible usage. While most would argue that BTC is still the most reliable cryptocurrency yet, NeuNer believes that XRP is not only faster but way cheaper than BTC.
