Binance lists HIVE after voting controversy

This announcement comes when Binance and Huobi have mobilized customer funds to provide support to Tron founder and new Steemit Inc owner Justin Sun’s present attempted takeover of the Steem network. Though both the exchanges clarified that they were misled by Justin Sun regarding the nature of what they are voting on and instantly withdrew their votes. The founder of Binance, CZ claimed that he knew about an upcoming upgrade that he had supported. 

Though in a recent statement, CZ scolding Sun saying that Justin didn’t brief him about the whole process. He mentions that his internal team told him that it was a required network upgrade, so he went ahead. These are networking upgrades and they always support such acts. He also added that he told Justin directly about the role it takes place in the community and get support first and then execute it as transparency works.
