Substratum CIO asks clarification, CZ hints the day-trading of ICO funds

Binance's CEO, Changpeng Zhao responds to Substratum CIO's dissatisfied questions, hinting that they have been day-trading their ICO funds. 

Following the delisting announcement made by Binance just a couple of days ago, the Substratum team posted on their Twitter account that they have reached out to the exchange for a clarification.

The tweet received many responses, including from Binance’s CEO, Changpeng Zhao, which ended up in engaging a “conversation” with Substratum’s CIO.

Initially, CZ was only giving a thumb 👍 to a comment made by a user, @CHalexov2016, who said, “Again guys! Working product made price and not exchange! Btw i hodl some $sub and lost with your product! But not becouse of @binance delist but becouse of project team and founders! 🤝👍🏼”

His response triggered the “dissatisfied” Substratum’s CIO, Abram Cookson, who “demanded” explanations on the delisting decision.

CZ’s response to the question hinting that Substratum has been using the funds raised from ICO for trading.

“Maybe stop trading the funds you raised that was intended for product dev?” he tweeted, followed by a statement that he will not respond again and observe Cunningham’s law, instead.

The Substratum team responded by claiming that it never happened and that they’ll be more than willing to provide “more granular level detail” to Binance to clarify.

And that’s not all, Cookson replied again appreciating CZ’s response, while also saying that he doesn’t control their funds or marketing and expecting transparent dialog and open source to “regain trust”.

Defying his previous comment, CZ replied back by saying that Binance couldn’t give early warnings for delisting, since he said, “Some teams (not you) may dump their own coins if they have early news.”

CZ’s last comment responded by the Substratum team that said they will provide access to Binance to their exchange account to clarify the day trading “accusation”.

The other comments vary, some expect it is just “a comedy of unintended errors and misunderstandings and that in the end, all will come right” or that “Binance will give SUB a second chance”. Others affirm CZ’s allegation by saying, “If they have knowledge that the substratum team are trading their ICO funds, I’d argue they have an imperative to delist $sub. This rumor has been around for a while and $sub holders have had a chance to dump their stacks.”

On Reddit, apparently, there has been a post trying to unite Substratum’s ICO investors to file a class action lawsuit against the company.
