The team at Binance have issued a communiqué stating that they will need some time to assess claims of voter manipulation during its latest “Coin of the Month” campaign.

Claims had originally circulated of possible manipulation ter the hotly contested campaign after a surge of votes te favour of an Elastos listing – amounting to almost 100,000 votes, according to some estimates – ter the last twenty-fours of the campaign.
However, volgers from the Elastos camp have pointed out that the surge wasgoed likely due to a critical mass of Chinese voters weighing te on the campaign overheen the weekend, and that bot-type manipulation shows up unlikely given the nature of the Binance sign-up proces which employs a very unorthodox reCaptcha mechanism.
The counter-argument emerges not to have assured the WePower community. “Whatever happened, I want an explanation,” one WePower supporter insisted, speaking to ICOExaminer.
“Up until 2pm on Saturday – with less than 24 hours to go – both sides were more or less neck-and-neck, each sitting on toughly 33% of the vote with about 150,000 votes personages ter total. By the time voting had closed at 10am Sunday, Elastos has somehow chalked up another one hundred thousand votes – twice spil much spil it had achieved ter the previous three days.”
Ter the communiqué, Binance has made an appeal for evidence of voter manipulation, permitting itself to set aside three days to assess any claims submitted. It is expected to render its conclusions sometime after the weekend.

Whist there is presently no evidence for bot-type manipulation at this stage, what likely complicates the matter is that Binance does not show up to publish any formal guidelines ter terms of what it considers to be a valid or invalid vote.
The likely outcome, according to some observers, is a listing for both camps on the world’s leading crypto-currency exchange spil Binance has a history of listing non-winning entries that demonstrate significant support.
Both WePower and Elastos – including third-placed Zilliqa which polled just under 20,000 votes – have achieved significantly more support than that witnessed te previous campaigns of the competition’s history.
