Some are talking about market manipulation, and others brought up various “poo” coins on Binance.
Other Twitter users seem excited, on the other hand: “Cmc has been bad for years. The amount of scams they’ve allowed to advertise on their site has been awful. Hopefully, @cz_binance changes that.”

These are “major” and will have a “significant impact,” CZ stated at the time. The deal we mentioned above could be one of them.
