Economist Nouriel Roubini, who has been an outspoken critic of cryptocurrency, is rolling out his own cryptocurrency. Binance co-founder and CEO Changpeng Zhao took issue with Roubini’s shift in stance on crypto, and especially with Roubini’s criticism of Binance. Zhao expressed his disapproval on Twitter, adding that Roubini’s new venture, Atlas Capital, had put Binance’s logo on their website without permission. Atlas Capital has since removed all logos from their “Team” page, but still touts the “deep experience” of their former Binance employees.
This news is an interesting twist, as Roubini’s criticism of crypto has been well-known for years. It is unclear what this new venture implies for the future of cryptocurrency, but it appears that Roubini may be changing his stance on the technology.
