I HAD NOT DEFAULTED ON DEBT TO A COUNTERPARTY AND ALLEGED THE PLATFORM FOR THE SUM: ROGER VER
Roger Ver, the first Bitcoin investor and promoter of Bitcoin Cash, has challenged the claims of the crypto-investment platform CoinFLEX over a $ 47-million debt.
In a Tuesday tweet, Ver - who did not name CoinFLEX by name - said he "did not make a mistake in the debt at the counter party," and suspected that the crypto company owed him "a lot of money." The denial followed rumors on social media that the BCH promoter was involved in a withdrawal process due to a "high networth client who owns shares in many large crypto companies" who do not incur their debts.
CoinFLEX CEO Mark Lamb took to Twitter shortly after the statement that the company had a written contract with Ver "undertaking to secure for himself any unfair balance in his CoinFLEX account and to complete a regular margin." According to Lamb, CoinFLEX gave Ver an automatic notification and "kept talking to her over the phone about the situation with a view to resolving it," saying the company did not owe her anything.
"It is unfortunate that Roger Ver needs to use such tactics to deviate from his debts and obligations," said CoinFLEX CEO.
Cointelegraph reported on Tuesday that a CoinFLEX account - held by "the most honest of the remarkable means" - lost $ 47 million after being allowed to reach the wrong balance without termination. The forum plans to rectify its shortfall by issuing a new token, Recovery Value USD (rvUSD), effective June 28, and withdrawal of users expected to resume on June 30.
The price of the traditional CoinFLEX (FLEX) token has dropped by more than 84% in the last 30 days, from $ 1.19 to $ 0.80 according to Lamb and Ver statements on Twitter.
