Conor Grogan, head of product and business operations at Coinbase, criticized Binance for allowing unknown actors to front-run trades. Grogan claims to have traced patterns stretching back 18 months.
Binance allows insider trading, Grogan implies.
Coinbase’s director highlighted some rogue trading activity on Twitter, showing traders buying tokens before listing, only to sell them shortly after Binance’s listing.
These front runners have managed to make millions of dollars as a result of this manipulative tactic.
In the tweet, Grogan claimed to have found several wallets linked to insider trading patterns. Wallets suspected of identifying insider information include:
- A purse that bought $900,000 worth. RARI Governance Tokens Dumping it minutes after listing on Binance
- A wallet that bought $78,000. Ethernity’s ERN Crypto Tokens between June 17, 2022 and June 21, 2022, and discarded immediately after enrollment.
- One that bought millions. TORN Tokens And sold them soon after the listing was announced.
- There has been a series of RAMP token purchases over the past few days. The investment amount was $500,000 worth of RAMP. Grogan observed that these tokens also sold off shortly after being listed on Binance, with the frontrunners making around $100,000 in profits.
- The last report goes back to 2021. Grogan noted that the wallet that came up with the listing of the Binance GNO token also gained $100,000.
The Coinbase exec explained that reasons such as insider access to material non-public information (MNPL) and leaked APIs could fuel the disclosure.
Binance needs more monitoring.
Coinbase’s Grogan said strongly that such a significant number Operational anomalies in a company A clear sign of continued lack of oversight. He said that the Governance, Risk Management and Compliance Department (GRC) is not doing its job.
The reason for these charges is that Binance can easily track and stop the person making these illegal trades. However, the company has turned a blind eye to these rogue traders for a year and a half.
However, unlike Binance, Grogan expressed that Coinbase takes such actions very seriously, with one case where a rogue trader received 10 months in prison for front-running charges.
