Some in the neighborhood have actually rallyed to support McCormack and others like him. ChangPeng Zhao has actually established a program to raise cash for those impacted by the lawsuits. And rather magnanimously, McCormack has actually declined the monetary aid, he said:
” Thanks for this CZ however I actually do not believe individuals must contribute their hard-earned Bitcoin to my fund. I got myself into, it depends on me to handle. Likewise, it might cost more to eliminate it than what they desire.”
CSW is badgering individuals who have a tough time fronting their legal charges. How about we do a @BinanceBCF charity program to raise cash from the neighborhood for legal charges for anybody CSW takes legal action against?@PeterMcCormack@rogerkver @jihanwu
