Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance, often faces criticism because of his bullish price predictions. Some even go as far as counter-trading them. 

However, CZ doesn't shy away from his tweets, claiming that one can 'easily' find all upticks that correlate with his bullish calls.

Skin in the game 

Some of CZ's predictions came at the worst possible time. He tweeted that BTC wouldn't 'hang around' below $9,000 right one week before the top cryptocurrency plunged 48 percent in one day. In November, he claimed that BTC could skyrocket to $16,000, but that also was incredibly inaccurate.         

However, CZ is a staunch permabull, which is why you should never expect him to post bearish forecasts. Being a bear doesn't make any sense for someone who is at the helm of one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges. 

The Binance CEO once said that the BTC price could be 'super high' if exchanges could manipulate it.

All-in on Bitcoin 

CZ famously sold his house Shanghai to make a huge BTC bet, which eventually paid off. He went from flipping burgers at McDonald's to becoming a billionaire. However, unlike some other representatives of the Bitcoin nouveau riche, he doesn't own houses, boats, or even Lambos. 

In his new tweet, CZ confirms that he only has about $500 in fiat.

A death sentence for inmates

Jails, which are crowded with aging people with underlying conditions, are petri dishes for the novel virus. Apart from the fact that there is no way for inmates to practice social distancing, they also suffer from dire sanitary conditions.    

The pandemic prompted the British Ministry of Justice (MoJ) to release thousands of prisoners with fewer than two months to serve. 

Numerous prisons across the U.S. also moved to drastically reduce their population to curb the spread of the lethal disease.

'Going a bit stir crazy' 

Even though Ulbricht has so far dodged the coronavirus bullet, he claims that he is going 'a bit stir crazy' in his cell. 

The 36-year-old recently spent his seventh birthday behind the bars in a high-security federal prison that is based in Tucson, Arizona. Ulbricht got a double-life sentence without parole for running the biggest drug market on the dark web. 

Billionaire Tim Draper and other prominent figures have called for Ulbricht's release with the clemency petition surpassing 280,000 signatures
