Musk questioned the exchange’s decision to limit withdrawals on dogecoin, adding that it “sounds shady”.
The content of his tweet can be seen below:
“Hey @cz_binance, what’s going on with your doge customers? Sounds shady,”
An hour later, the exchange replied, claiming that it was caused by a glitch during its upgrade process.
“not shady” but a “frustrating” glitch caused by its upgrade process.
CZ also confirmed the incident while aiming a dig at Musk by asking about a software glitch that caused the recall of 12,000 vehicles.
Elon, we are pretty certain it is an issue with the latest #doge wallet. We are in communications with the devs. Apologies for any inconvenience that may have caused you.

A glitch reportedly caused old dogecoin transactions to be sent to over 1,600 users of the exchange on November 11.
The crypto exchange decided to suspend withdrawals and build the cryptocurrency wallet and Binance has claimed that this rebuild process could last another week.
The Tesla founder went on to say that “Doge holders using Binance should be protected from errors that are not their fault.”

This is not the first time that Zhao and Musk have gone up against each other.
In June this year, CZ asked Elon Musk to be careful about his “humorous” cryptocurrency tweets because they are capable of influencing the market.
