Is Roubini the Disguised Satoshi? Asks CEO of Binance

Nouriel Roubini, an American economist, has called Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance, a jerk. CZ came up with an extremely sarcastic answer.

The crypto-verse is full of flamboyant figures like self-proclaimed Satoshi Craig Wright, who likes to cry in courts. Tricky as it is, Nouriel Roubini, professor at Stern School NYU, manages to stand out. The man, who once described crypto “the mother and father of all scams”, is attending the 2019 Asia Blockchain Summit. What for? To call crypto a scam, obviously.

In his tweet, @CryptoGodfatha, shows a picture of Roubini, giving a speech with a keynote that reads “Mark the Word of Dr.Doom.”

CZ, who was also present, reacted to the tweet, asking a spot-on question. He wondered how come an anti-crypto man attending crypto conferences. He went on to joke that perhaps Roubini is the true Satoshi Nakamoto — a statement Craig Wright could easily sue you for if only he found a slot in his busy lawsuit schedule.

The joke resonated with the community. For instance, @perfcrypto suggested that he’s “Disguised Satoshi testing the community. And is proud to see how many people defend it.”

And the fight went on

It would not come as a surprise that Roubini quickly took to Twitter and used his usual colorful language, calling Binance’s CEO “a jerk.” CZ’s critique was characterized as “pathetic.” At the end of the tweet Roubini called his opponent a “snake oil peddler.”

CZ’s answer was once again succinct and to the point: “A guy who builds what he believes in? Or A guy who goes to crypto conferences just to call bitcoin a scam?”

Quite frankly, there is no time to answer this question, as Roubini has already booked his next fight, which will take place on July 3rd. This time with BitMEX’s CEO Arthur Hayes.  The debate is promising for two reasons. To begin with, Roubini already said that BitMEX sucks. Plus, Hayes has a talent for words. Back in 2018, he characterized Ethereum as “a double-digit shit coin.”
