CZ Addresses Reports of Circle Telling Regulators About PAXOS/BUSD

Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao recently addressed rumors about Jeremy Allaire, founder of Circle, secretly telling New York regulators to look into Paxos and BUSD’s stablecoin in a wide-ranging Twitter Spaces AMA on Feb. 14. CZ believes there is no substance to these reports and welcomed more stablecoin alternatives into the marketplace.

Stablecoins Necessary For Most People’s Costs

CZ noted that even though more competition in the marketplace is encouraged, stablecoins are still necessary because most people’s costs are still in fiat currency. He suggested that the industry may move away from USD-backed stablecoins to non-US dollar based ones or algorithmic ones, but added that if this happens the economics should be done in a transparent way so people don’t lose money due to peg losses.

Transparency & Communication Key To Avoiding Another TerraUSDT

In order to avoid another incident like what happened with TerraUSD (UST), CZ stressed the importance of transparency and communication with consumers as well as finding collective solutions within the industry.
