“Recently, there have been rumors that I default on a debt to a contra-party,” Ver wrote shortly after CoinFlex announced it would issuing recovery tokens. This was an attempt by the exchange, to resume customer withdrawals, after a high integrity’ investor ran out of money. “I do not owe any debt to this counter party, but the counter-party owes me a significant sum of money and I am seeking my return.”
