As the report puts it, many influencers were accused of promoting FTX and then deleting videos seeming to endorse the defunct exchange from their channels.
Immense Damage to the Industry
The lawsuit’s focal point is the influencers’ advocacy for the platform’s exchange. Moreover, it alleges that without revealing the nature of any payment or compensation, while endorsing the product. Among the people who have been sued since then include Erika Kullberg, BitBoy Ben Armstrong, and “Meet Kevin” Kevin Paffrath.
Adam Moskowitz, of the Moskowitz Law Firm, is defending the plaintiffs. On the other hand, Moskowitz is apparently also engaged in a similar action against Tom Brady and other celebrities. These famous people actively pushed the now-defunct crypto exchange.
