Hogeg denied the accusations.
The January filing also named Shalem as a defendant. On Wednesday, Hu notified the court that he is withdrawing the suit against Shalem as he had been convinced Shalem bore no responsibility for the damages outlined in the suit. On Thursday, the court approved Hu’s request.
Earlier this month, Coindesk’s Leigh Cuen enlisted the help of blockchain analytics firm Alethio to dive into Hogeg’s various initial coin offerings. Besides Stox, Hogeg was also involved in the ICOs of blockchain-based decentralized lead-sharing network LeadCoin, and of cryptocurrency smartphone company Sirin Labs. Both tokens have been hit hard by the downturn in cryptocurrency.
