Rumors were doing the rounds this month that Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver owes millions to exchanges. Days later, CoinFLEX CEO Mark Lamb took to Twitter confirming that Ver owed the exchange $47 million USDC. Reportedly, CoinFLEX gave Ver a $47 million uncollateralized loan, and he had a long on Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Reports state that CoinFLEX allowed him to run the deficit as he guaranteed them that he would pay it back.

Lamb admitted that Ver owes the exchange $47 million USDC. “Roger Ver owes CoinFLEX $47 Million USDC. We have a written contract with him obligating him to personally guarantee any negative equity on his CoinFLEX account and top-up margin regularly. He has been in default of this agreement and we have served a notice of default,” he tweeted.

However, Ver took to Twitter, claiming that accusations against him are false, and stated that he is not a defaulter. In return, he accused the exchange of owing him money, not the other way around.

“Recently some rumors have been spreading that I have defaulted on a debt to a counter-party. These rumors are false. Not only do I not have a debt to this counter-party, but this counter-party owes me a substantial sum of money. And I am currently seeking the return of my funds,” Ver tweeted.

The accusations and counteraccusations exposed the wrongdoings of the crypto sphere at the top level. The trust among investors about the inner happenings of the industry took a beating with this development.
