This is not the first time Elon Musk has encouraged Dogecoin holders to move to decentralized exchanges. In February, Musk noted that any wallet that does not allow its users to control their funds should be “avoided at all cost.”

Musk and Doge Vs. Binance
Musk’s renewed stance for Doge holders moving outside CEXs (including Binance) all started with an upgrade that has restricted Dogecoin holders from withdrawing funds from Binance. Some others have been asked to return funds that they never held.
The centi-billionaire joined the Doge community in calling out Binance, and the exchange’s CEO, Changpeng Zhao (CZ), on the technical issue. Although CZ has addressed the problem on Twitter, the withdrawal glitch has been extended by another week.
