Scammers Created an AI Hologram of Me to Scam Unsuspecting Projects - Binance Blog

Over the past month, I’ve received several online messages thanking me for taking the time to meet with project teams regarding potential opportunities to list their assets on This was odd because I don’t have any oversight of or insight into Binance listings, nor had I met with any of these people before.

It turns out that a sophisticated hacking team used previous news interviews and TV appearances over the years to create a “deep fake” of me. Other than the 15 pounds that I gained during COVID being noticeably absent, this deep fake was refined enough to fool several highly intelligent crypto community members.
