CNBC Cryptotrader host has denied the allegations recently made by cryptocurrency media The Block, with regards of his promotion and investment on the ICO of Blockchain Terminal (BCT).
The article points out that Shaun MacDonald, the ICO project leader, was in fact Boaz Manor, a former hedge funder who was sentenced to prison in Canada back in 2012 for his wrongdoings when running a $800 million hedge fund.
Ran NeuNer promoted the ICO on Twitter and invested $1.3M on it. The article claims that out of that investment, only $350,000 came from the popular crypto host, as he resold $950,000 to other investors.
A further complain towards NeuNer is that he deleted the ICO from his publicly disclosed investments list, although it was public for a while.
Ran took over Twitter to reply to the allegations made by The Block, and denied having been contacted for comment, although the article does mention that the reporters tried to get in touch with him, unsuccessfully.
This is probably the worst case of inaccuracy I have ever read. Especially given the fact that I lost a ton of my own cash investing in this fraud. @lawmaster and @TheBlock__ - you could/should have pinged me for the facts before you published. https://t.co/qQlLvRWL92— Ran NeuNer (@cryptomanran) December 10, 2018
