What did CZ say?
Zao replied to the roast tweets saying:
CMC should have removed all scam projects, as deemed by anyone on crypto twitter, including #bitcoin because Peter Schiff doesn’t like it. CMC should also fix all inaccurate exchange data, and remove all wrong info from the internet.
Come on, it’s been almost a month! “
Even though Bitcoin is at the top, it is still counted as a fraud by many of its critics and that includes permabear Peter Schiff.
