Zhao said on Twitter regarding the development, "Doubts creep in once in a while, stay strong, stay SAFU." SAFU refers to a Binance initiative called Secure Asset Fund for Users that takes a portion of trading fees and accumulates it in a fund that will be used to compensate users if the need arises.
Zhao's tweet comes at a time when Sam Bankman-Fried-led FTX cryptocurrency exchange faces a bout of fear, uncertainty, and doubt.
