The rumored infight between the Breitmans and Tezos Foundation

The purpose of this settlement is to resolve all pending litigation against Arthur and Kathleen Breitman, their company Dynamic Ledger Solutions, and Tezos Stiftung (Tezos Foundation).

During 2017 the Breitmans upraised $232 million from the investors of Tezos blockchain which maintain records of a digital currency called “Tez,” “tezzie,” or sometimes “tokens.” The investor purchased those tokens during crowd funding also known as an initial coin offering (ICO).

According to a media report in October 2017, there was a rumored fight between the Breitmans and Tezos Foundation president Johann Gevers. Tezos managed the moneymaker.

Due to this reason, the investors began to get scared with the blockchain venture that it may be delayed and will not give satisfactory profits as expected. One more belief of the investor was whether the ICO was an investment or a contribution.

The Breitmans notified that the ICO was not a scheme or donation and are pleased to offer Tezos tokens to the funders. But the investors opposed their contributions were investments that were essential for the defendants to register with the US Securities and Exchange Commission before accepting money.

The investors demanded the company to refund their bitcoin and Ethereum.

The settlement motion

A total of four cases were filed and consolidated later on, and at the end of 2018, negotiations for a settlement started.

There was one more issue pertaining to this matter, in case of any damage the Tezos contributors could recover with an unsure value of cryptocurrency.

As per the settlement motion, the plaintiffs were aware that the defendants will participate in the argument that the transactions at this subject did not include ‘securities’ defined under the federal securities laws, and also, such transactions were otherwise exempt from registration.

Adding to this the motion reveals, Plaintiffs were well-aware that the value of the blockchain could rapidly fluctuate at this issue. Thus, plaintiffs were familiar that, even if they were successful, or after trial and appeals, they might receive considerably less than the amount obtained in this settlement for the benefit of the settlement class.

Roughly 30,000 investors who participated in the ICO from July 1, 2017, till July 13, 2017, are considered as “settlement class”. The attorneys of the settlement class seek fees of $8.3 million of the $25 million approximately.

This settlement is yet pending and needs to be approved by a federal judge.
