We've recently reported on the class-action lawsuit against Roger Ver and his site Bitcoin.com for fraud and purposeful misinformation of customers. But it seems that the legal battle isn't to be. The lawsuit was canceled for the time being, according to the official site of the movement.
The class-action lawsuit was called off because the donations weren't enough to pay for the law firm services. It's actually strange, because the Telegram group chat have gathered more than a thousand victims of Ver's misleading actions.
The movement managed to raise only $3,760 or 0.39 BTC through donations. Obviously, it's not nearly enough to pay for the undisclosed law firm assistance in building the case. The price, as reported by MoneyTrigz - the person behind the start of the whole deal, was quoted to be around $1 million and with three years of litigation it seems that no one is willing to pursue the legal path. Especially after Bitcoin.com has already stopped labeling BCH as the real Bitcoin. Apparently, the threat of the lawsuit was enough in this case, but it remains to be seen, if the site doesn't return to its, frankly, scammy disposition towards the newcomers of the cryptocommunity.
The Bitcoincomlawsuit.info at the time of press has already started refund process for all the donation received during the campaign.
