Are Vitalik and Justin getting friendly to each other?

As a reminder, in spring 2018, Vitalik publicly accused Tron of plagiarizing some aspects of Ethereum’s whitepaper for Tron’s. In the course of 2018, Justin Sun and Vitalik had several public disputes on Twitter.

BNB makes history

At the time of writing this article, the price of the BNB token is at $24.65, rising above its previous ATH of $24.46 that was recorded on Jan. 12. Hence, Binance Coin, the seventh largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, becomes only the second asset to reach a new price peak after the crash of the speculation-driven bull market. EOS, which is sitting one spot above BNB on CMC, achieved a similar feat in May 2018.

‘Binance Coin is outpacing the overall crypto market. While Bitcoin is off 75% from its all-time-high, Binance Coin has recovered. There is fundamental growth and synergy taking place that is contributing to the rising price of Binance Coin,’ says BitBull Capital CEO Joe DiPasquale.
