News broke out two days ago that Binance’s Shanghai office has been raided by local police and has shut down consequently. The CEO of the cryptocurrency exchange, Changpeng Zhao, has since refuted the claims, while also saying that it’s FUD of the kind that damaged Bitcoin’s price in the past couple of days.

Binance To Sue The Block Media Outlet

Cryptocurrency news media The Block reported on November 21st that the Shanghai office of Binance has shut down because it has been clamped down by authorities. Reportedly, there have been between 50 and 100 employees as well as executives.

Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance, has since refuted those claims, saying that there was “no police, no raid, no office.”

This quickly caused a storm within the cryptocurrency community, and it became one of the most widely-discussed topics over the past two days, especially following the recent Bitcoin price action.

Zhao also stated numerous times that this had hurt the reputation of the company. The CEO has already expressed his intentions to take The Block to court.

Moreover, he also said that it had caused damage to Bitcoin’s price. Indeed, Bitcoin crashed yesterday, starting the day above $8,000 and recording a low of nearly $6,700. This marked a daily decline of around 17%. Since then, the price has recovered a bit, and it currently trades at $7180.

Was This Enough For a 17% Price Drop?

Whether or not the news is real or fake, any reputable media outlet should understand the weapon it’s holding. Relying on unverified sources can, indeed, cause panic-sell due to the snowball effect viral news has.

In regards to whether this alone can be the trigger for the severe price drop Bitcoin saw over the past day, in my opinion, other reasons like the news regarding the Chinese crypto ban are more likely to be the cause.

Today, thankfully, that’s not the situation anymore. Binance is, indeed, the biggest cryptocurrency exchange, but we shouldn’t forget that it migrated out of China long ago, and it’s headquartered in Malta.

The exchange also opened smaller offices around the world over the past year. Hence, even if the news was accurate, it’s hard to imagine that raiding empty offices can cause Bitcoin to tumble more than $1,500 in just a single day.

This could have been true for no doubt if we were in the year of 2014 and the exchange name was not Binance but MT.Gox. Back in those early days of cryptocurrency trading, MT.Gox had captured almost the whole market, hence, any news regarding it had a fatal effect on Bitcoin. Bitcoin crashed more than 70% on the days following MT.Gox crash.

Yet, it’s essential to take this opportunity as a news outlet and emphasize the importance of fact-checking. It’s imperative to trust only verified sources when it comes to the accuracy of any news that comes out. It today’s world, it doesn’t take a lot to cause a lot of damage, especially with fake news.
