Bitcoin exchange in danger
CNBC Mad Money host Jim Cramer suggested in a tweet today that the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is concerned about Binance. The comments came in response to the SEC’s limited objection to Binance.US’s acquisition of Voyager assets. The TV presenter decided that Binance might be ‘more fictitious than we thought’. The Mad Money server, after sounding warnings against crypto, said, “I don’t want people to lose money unnecessarily,” implying that users should withdraw their money from the exchange.

Cramer appeared to support Binance on December 14, but said two days later that he would prefer to trust DraftKings with his money. It is worth noting that the expert predicts a bleak year for crypto assets, adding a lot to the excitement of the crypto community, which is used to seeing things that go against their predictions.

In December, Voyager Digital announced that it has agreed to buy the assets of Binance.US for $1.02 billion. Bankrupt crypto lender Voyager had previously given permission to sell its holdings to the now-defunct crypto exchange FTX before Binance made a new bid.
