I wonder how Deputy Chairman of the Central Bank Mikhail Zadornov and his deputy Nadia Cherkasova find a common language in Otkritie?
The fact is that Zadornov is the main fighter against cryptocurrency, and Cherkasova not only fights for the rights of women in business, but is also an investor in the Boomstarter crowdfunding platform and the Storiqa project.
The Storiqa project deserves special attention. The fact is that Cherkasova, along with other founders of Storiqa, promised to create a competitor to Amazon and AliExpress. It was expected that a marketplace capable of selling goods for cryptocurrency would be created. Investors were promised a platform where they can sell and promote their own products, receive transaction fees and various bonuses. However, in the end, the Storiqa project team raised $25 million and did nothing.
As a result, 205 people reported fraud by the Storiqa team. At first they tried to get their money back by contacting the founders of the project. But they didn’t react at all. The deceived investors filed a class action lawsuit after realizing that the project was not feasible from the start. And it really was so, because the founders of Storiqa first announced the uniqueness of the project, and when the price of their own coin increased 10 times, they chose money and closed. According to rumors, the proceeds were reinvested in the Boomstarter project.
