Pretty good demonstration of why at least SOME regulation of the ICO space is a good idea.

again i take full responsibility for the losses. i invested with the selfish motive of making a return, for my personal benefit, and it didn't go as planned.

however, they did falsely market the investment to me and that is something i do feel is illegal and not okay

absolutely they're under the jurisdiction of the SEC as they took money from US citizens

For what it's worth, I'll take a tenth of the funding and promise to deliver just as much.

lol i don't doubt you

That's terrible. Good luck to you, hope you get your money back.


If you have records of these conversations can you not sue them?

i have all of the records, yes suing is definitely a consideration at the moment, the new ceo has promised to find middle ground / some sort of resolution after devcon

Do you think they will give you some money back? Do you think the token sale or SAFT are going to materialize into anything at all on the exchanges? In your opinion, are the SAFT deals just locked away forever with the invested funds slowly bleeding out?

i doubt i'll get anything back and also doubt it'll be worth anything on exchanges

yes, almost all safts are depreciating if not totally worthless assets
