The Founder of DigiByte (DGB) recently took to Twitter to call out TRON founder Justin Sun and Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao. Calling both individuals “crooks,” he claims that they are operating in the industry on borrowed time.
DigiByte founder Jared Tate is not a fan of Binance or TRON. On Twitter, the founder took aim at both industry giants and claims that they have “hijacked” the entire industry.
Tired of the bullshit in this industry. I haven’t dedicated the last 8 years of my life to sit idly by and watch #blockchain tech be hijacked by a bunch of crooks like @justinsuntron and @cz_binance. Time has come.

The incendiary comments were well-received by his followers, most of who are DigiByte supporters. Others, however, weren’t so kind to Tate and claimed that his comments added nothing to the industry.
You are a cancer to $DGB as a marketer. Step down and work behind the scenes. Stop embarrassing the community. You’re becoming more known for your childish antics than your creation. Stop policing crypto. Its not your job.

Tate continued to fire back, responding that he was “born a fighter” and won’t “roll over to tyranny.” The reaction from the greater cryptocurrency community has been relative silence.
DigiByte vs. Binance
The DigiByte founder has had a long history of issues with Binance, in particular. As BeInCrypto previously reported, Tate claimed that Binance wanted “$300,000 and three percent of all DGB” for a listing on its exchange. Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao was outright dismissive of Tate’s claim and said that he will not be wasting his time with “these types of guys.”
Tate continued to hammer the point out, calling Binance unethical and claiming it engages in “shady practices.”
Some might argue that Tate is taking aim at Binance again due to still being angry over the lack of a Binance listing.
Binance Grows and Grows
Tate’s comments will likely continue to fall flat as Binance continues to expand its market share.
The world’s largest exchange recently rolled out a new feature which allows for instant transfers between Binance accounts.
If Tate is right that Binance’s time is up, it wouldn’t be because of the exchange’s performance in 2019 — which has been packed with new releases and features.
