The 15M coins that cost Binance $3M in 2018 could be sold at 560x returns when Luna was trading at an all-time high of $119 but the exchange Never moved those coins nor sold them.

“Binance received 15,000,000 LUNA (at peak worth $1.6 billion USD, now not much) as part of the original ($3m) invest. 560x return at peak. It still sits on the address we received at. Never moved or sold.”

The CZ confirms that Binance has not invested any amount in the 2nd round of Luna’s fundraising regarding UST.
