Liti Capital Launches Scambusters to tackle Crypto Fraud

The litigation funding provider is offering a 250,000 wLITI token reward for new crypto scam cases  

Geneva, Switzerland - 23 September 2021: Liti Capital SA, the Swiss-based litigation funding provider disrupting private equity investing with blockchain technology, is launching ScamBusters, a revolutionary new tool that allows users to vote for which crypto-focused cases the company should pursue next.  

Fraud within cryptocurrency and blockchain is rife. This year will be a record for investment fraud: 14,079 investment scams were reported to the FTC in the first quarter of 2021, and victims lost $215 million in this quarter alone. Liti Capital is bringing its expertise in picking, funding and winning court cases and inviting consumers to vote on which scams it should pursue in court next. 

“The idea that scammers can freely operate in the crypto sphere without facing the consequences of their actions must end to bring trust and change the perception blockchain and crypto projects have in our society”, says Andy Christen, CVO/COO at Liti Capital.  

Liti Capital commits to allocate between 5% and 10% of its yearly investment budget to finance cases that have affected its community members. Any LITI or wLITI token holder can report a purported fraud to the company.

ScamBusters is a community voting event to select crypto scam cases going to be sued by Liti Capital. LITI and wLITI token holders can use their tokens without spending them to vote for the case(s) they think have the most merit. The more tokens they have the more voting power they can exercise. Voters of the winning case will share an award up to 250,000 wLITI, distributed pro-rata to their votes. 

Once members of the community have submitted cases on the ScamBusters website, Liti Capital instructs its team of legal experts based in 140 countries across the world to explore details of the case. 

A selection of cases are then presented back to community members, with the case collecting the highest number of votes being added to Liti Capital’s portfolio. Community voting begins on Sept 23, 2021, with the winning case announced on October 15, 2021. 

“If cryptocurrency is going to become the defacto way people take part in the Web3 world, trust, regulation and a robust legal system are all parts of that puzzle,” says Jonas Rey, CEO at Liti Capital. 

$wLITI Lists on Changelly PRO, on the Heels of HitBTC and Bitcoin.com Listings

Liti Capital’s wLITI token, a wrapped version of the Swiss company’s LITI equity token, lists today on Changelly PRO, 30 August 3 PM UTC. $wLITI pairs with BTC and USDT are now available for trading.

This comes less than a week after listing on Bitcoin.com Exchange and less than two weeks on HitBTC. The Changelly PRO team has expressed their warm welcome to the litigation financing token.

“We are happy to welcome $wLITI to our big family of carefully curated cryptocurrencies and hope that our users will gain maximum benefits from this collaboration. We are proud to partner with a company that provides financial resources, strategic solutions and renowned connections to the best law firms worldwide to help plaintiffs obtain court awards for damages or losses they have suffered,” says a Changelly PRO spokesperson.

Liti Capital, a Swiss-based blockchain private equity fund specializing in raising capital for legal cases, is making waves in traditional investing by bringing litigation financing to the masses, an investment practice traditionally monopolized by hedge fund heavyweights and elite investors.

Litigation financing is the practice of bringing in investors to cover the cost of a lawsuit or arbitration in exchange for a portion of the profit. Litigation financing specialists, such as Liti Capital, purchase litigation assets for cases they deem to have a high chance of winning.

“We appreciate the amazing support that established exchanges such as Changelly PRO have shown for our $wLITI token. With high profile projects in the blockchain and decentralized finance spaces finally attracting mainstream interest, we are excited to explore the possibilities for $wLITI as a wrapped version of an equity token that offers regular people the chance to invest in an asset class that previously wasn’t available to them,” says Liti Capital CEO Jonas Rey.

$wLITI: an ERC-20 Wrapped Version of Equity Token $LITI

wLITI is an ERC-20 wrapped version of the LITI equity token. Launched on June 29, 2021, the wLITI token is suitable for trading on centralized exchanges (CEXes) like Changelly PRO, and also on DEXes, whereas the LITI token is only available through liticapital.com after meeting KYC requirements.

Liti Capital uses the blockchain to manage its share registry. Development of its own blockchain-based case management tools is on its roadmap.

wLITI can be exchanged for LITI at a token buyer’s request via Liti Capital’s app or website, which converts LITI to wLITI at a 1:5000 ratio and vice versa. The tokens will always maintain this ratio. The buyer is then able to trade their wLITI freely. Liti Capital does not directly sell wLITI.

LITI is a true digital share of Liti Capital that has voting rights, pays dividends and is protected under Swiss law. LITI is purposely not designed to be on exchanges at this time.

Both tokens represent Liti Capital, whose mantra is “Private Equity for All.” Liti Capital works exclusively in a single form of private equity – Litigation Finance, also called third party funding. This asset class has remained almost entirely exclusive to hedge funds and venture capitalists since its inception several decades ago. Litigation Finance is the practice of financing all or part of a legal case on behalf of a plaintiff for an agreed upon percentage of the court award.

Once Liti Capital purchases a portion of ownership of a case, it provides capital that can be used in many ways: legal fees, case management and strategy, expert witnesses, intelligence work and whatever else is needed to give the plaintiff the best chance of winning the case and collecting the award. The portion owned by Liti Capital becomes a “litigation asset” that backs the LITI token.

On 19 August 2021, Liti Capital announced that it was funding a claim against Binance, which would enable affected individuals to pursue compensation in relation to the exchange failing on 19 May 2021. This failure resulted in the trading accounts (including Futures, Margin, and Leveraged Token products) of at least 700 and potentially thousands of individuals being effectively untradeable for hours, causing traders to suffer losses that could exceed one hundred million dollars.

Liti Capital’s Wrapped LITI (wLITI) lists on Bitcoin.com Exchange

Geneva, Switzerland, August 24, 2021 - Liti Capital’s wLITI token, a wrapped version of the Swiss company’s LITI equity token, has been listed on the Bitcoin.com Exchange on  24 August at 10:00AM UTC. wLITI is trading with BTC and USDT pairs.

Liti Capital, a Swiss-based blockchain private equity fund specializing in raising capital for legal cases, is making waves in traditional investing by bringing litigation financing to the masses, an investment practice traditionally monopolized by hedge fund heavyweights and elite investors.

Just last week, 19 August 2021, Liti Capital announced that it was funding a claim (www.binanceclaim.com) against Binance, which would enable affected individuals to pursue claims, including, if necessary, in arbitration, for compensation in relation to the exchange failing on 19 May 2021. This failure resulted in the trading accounts (including Futures, Margin, and Leveraged Token products) of at least 700 and potentially thousands of individuals being effectively untradeable for hours, causing traders to suffer losses that could exceed one hundred million dollars.

Litigation financing is the practice of bringing in investors to cover the cost of a lawsuit or arbitration in exchange for a portion of the profit. Litigation financing specialists, such as Liti Capital, purchase litigation assets for cases they deem to have a high chance of winning.

While litigation financing often requires an initial investment of $500,000 to $1 million from an investor, Liti Capital makes it accessible for anyone with as little as $50. It does this by tokenizing shares in Liti Capital and paying out dividends to Liti Capital (LITI) equity token holders when a case in Liti Capital’s portfolio is won.

Liti Capital has already secured a healthy case portfolio with its largest case potentially worth more than $1 billion when it finally settles. Cases like these, which tend to be commercial rather than consumer or personal lawsuits, usually target large-scale corporate disputes valued at more than $10 million. While they could take years before a settlement is reached, successful litigation funders can expect to pocket between three and five times their initial investments, according to estimates by litigation finance expert Steven Friel.

What is wLITI?

wLITI is an ERC-20 token that is the wrapped version of the LITI equity token. Launched on June 29, 2021, the wLITI token is suitable for trading on exchanges such as Bitcoin.com, whereas the LITI token is only available through liticapital.com after meeting KYC requirements. Liti Capital uses the blockchain to manage its share registry. Development of its own blockchain-based case management tools is on its roadmap.

Switzerland-based Liti Capital creates wLITI at a LITI token buyer’s request via Liti Capital’s app or website, which converts the LITI to wLITI at a 1:5000 ratio. The tokens will always maintain this ratio. The buyer is then able to trade their wLITI freely. Liti Capital does not directly sell wLITI.

LITI is a true digital share of Liti Capital that has voting rights, pays dividends and is protected under Swiss law. LITI is purposely not designed to be on exchanges at this time.

Both tokens represent Liti Capital, whose mantra is “private equity for all.” Liti Capital works exclusively in a single form of private equity – Litigation Finance, also called third party funding.

The portion owned by Liti Capital becomes a “litigation asset” that backs the LITI token.

A Strong Endorsement

Danish Chaudhry, CEO of Bitcoin.com Exchange, shared his views on wLiti’s listing, saying,“The Liti Capital team are providing an equity token which is the first of its kind, focused around easy-to-access private equity investment opportunities for basically anyone with the help of blockchain technology.”

Chaudhry continues on by saying: “We’re very excited to see how Liti Capital will continue to empower their vision, and gain further outreach with our outstanding community at the exchange.”

Jonas Rey, CEO of Liti Capital, said, “Listing on Bitcoin.com Exchange is an excellent opportunity for us, and a milestone we are proud of. We have full confidence that once the public discovers just how valuable the litigation assets we are able to purchase on behalf of LITI investors are and how powerful blockchain-backed private equity trading can be, that wLITI will become a very popular token indeed.”

Liti Capital to Fund Action Against Binance

A group of 700+ claimants work with litigation finance provider Liti Capital to seek hundreds of millions of dollars in damages against the world’s biggest crypto exchange in what will be the first case of its kind.

Geneva, Switzerland - August 19, 2021: Liti Capital SA, a Swiss-based litigation funding provider that has opened up private equity investing to the masses through blockchain technology, has been appointed by a group of claimants seeking damages against Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange.

Liti Capital is spearheading the arbitration lawsuit on behalf of a group of traders who lost on  19 May 2021 when Binance inexplicably froze their accounts for approximately one hour. 

As a result, the trading accounts (including futures options) of at least 700 known traders were effectively untradable for multiple hours. We believe that thousands of traders were affected, and that those traders suffered more than one hundred million dollars of damages.  

Binances failures however, are not just isolated to 19 May 2021; Binance has failed to meet its obligation to its community on many occasions since October 2020.

The total loss incurred across all 700+ claimants is expected to be well in excess of one hundred million US dollars; in fact, the six Steering and Advisory Committee members alone have a collective claim in excess of $20m USD.

It is believed that this case - the first ever group action case in the crypto sector - will be a landmark event in defining how organisations operating in the sector behave and treat their customers. 

“Crypto and blockchain are the future but they’ve just got to get cleaned up. It is the Wild West out there. Companies like Binance - the largest, most influential players - have to be brought to account,” says David Kay, CEO of Liti Capital. 

The traders caught up in the incident allege that Binance liquidated their positions as a result of the exchange freezing causing millions of dollars worth of losses. Several traders have pursued the exchange for compensation but so far have been unsuccessful. 

Under Binance’s terms and conditions, users seeking compensation are required to file disputes with the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre, a costly step for an individual.

“Binance has made it difficult—not impossible, but difficult—for the average consumer to seek recourse,” says Aija Lejniece, an arbitration attorney who has been working with the group of traders. “There’s no surveillance [of Binance’s activities], nothing to control what they’re doing.”

Liti Capital will provide litigation finance to the Binance Arbitration Case, meaning claimants don’t have to pay any upfront costs to bring the case to court. White & Case LLP is coordinating legal efforts with an advisory team on behalf of all plaintiffs. 

This includes covering the cost of White & Case, the lawyers that will represent this group, any expert witnesses, arbitration court fees and every other cost pertaining to the case. Liti Capital will cover all costs. 

“Given the unconscionable terms of the user agreement and the costs of arbitration, we don’t know if anyone in our group - or anyone in their system - has paid enough [in fees to Binance] to make money even if they win their case,” says Kay. 

Litigation Finance is a means whereby a third party pays for all costs for the plaintiffs in exchange of a minority percentage of the award, should one be given. Liti Capital crowdfunds legal fees using the LITI token to raise capital to buy asset ownership in legal cases they believe they can win and collect judgments on.

“Our strong view is that Binance went way further than what they were allowed to under the law,” says Kay. 

Claimants who wish to take part in the case should visit www.binancecase.com to register their interest.

Liti Capital Token wLITI Lists on HitBTC, Bringing Litigation Financing to the Masses

Geneva, Switzerland, 17 August 2021Liti Capital, the Swiss-based litigation financing company that has made private equity investing accessible to everyone through blockchain technology, has listed its wLITI token for the first time on a centralized exchange (CEX) - HitBTC.

wLITI’s first CEX listing follows its recent listings on decentralized exchanges (DEXes) Uniswap and 1Inch Exchange.

Having launched earlier this year, Liti Capital is already making waves in traditional investing by bringing litigation financing — an investment practice traditionally monopolized by hedge fund heavyweights and elite investors — to the masses.

“We are very excited to list on HitBTC,” said Liti Capital CEO Jonas Rey. “This represents a major milestone toward our goal of leveling the playing field for litigation finance. Legal claims are an extremely appealing asset class because they can be so lucrative, and we provide a means for anyone to get in on this exciting investment opportunity.”

Founded in 2013, HitBTC is one of the oldest and largest spot-trading cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. It is well-known for its state-of-the-art matching engine, high security measures and low trading fees. With a trading robot-friendly API and 24-hour customer service, HitBTC is a popular exchange with over 800 trading pairs and more than 400 spot instruments.

Putting traditional investing on the blockchain

Litigation financing is the practice of bringing in investors to cover the cost of a lawsuit or arbitration in exchange for a portion of the profit. Litigation financing specialists, such as Liti Capital, purchase litigation assets for cases they deem to have a high chance of winning.

While litigation financing often requires an initial investment of USD 500 K to USD 1 million from an investor, Liti Capital makes it accessible for anyone with as little as USD 50. They do this by tokenizing shares in LitiCapital, and paying out dividends to LITI equity token holders when a case in Liti Capital’s portfolio is won.

wLITI, or “Wrapped LITI” — the token listed on HitBTC today — is Liti Capital’s ERC-20 liquidity token. It doesn’t provide access to dividends like LITI does, but wLITI can be exchanged for LITI tokens at a 5000 to 1 ratio. However, both tokens give holders the power to vote on how Liti Capital assets are used to finance crypto fraud cases that affect Liti Capital community members, an initiative that the company is dedicated to allocating between five and ten percent of their yearly investment budget for.

Boasting a billion-dollar case portfolio

Liti Capital has already secured a healthy case portfolio, with their largest case potentially worth more than USD 1 billion when it finally settles. Cases like these, which tend to be commercial rather than consumer or personal lawsuits, usually target large-scale corporate disputes valued at more than USD 10 million. While they could take years before a settlement is reached, successful litigation funders can expect to pocket between three and five times their initial investments, according to estimates by litigation finance expert Steven Friel (Bloomsbury, The Law and Business of Litigation Finance, 2020).

To attain this goal, Liti Capital onboarded seasoned industry leader David Kay as CIO and Executive Chairman. Boasting more than a decade of experience as Funding Partner and Portfolio Manager of a billion-dollar private equity fund in the litigation financing space, Kay successfully enforced what was at the time the largest international arbitration award in history, bringing in over USD 1 billion in cash and securities.

“Litigation assets generally don’t correlate with the state of the economy, allowing litigation financing to thrive even in a bear market,” Kay explained. “A relative newcomer to the modern investment ecosystem, litigation financing is expected to double in market value within the next six years. Our investment team at Liti Capital is actively seeking out the top opportunities in litigation assets, and aims to add at least five more multi-million dollar cases to our portfolio by this time next year.”

Liti Capital Announces New $5 Million USD Investment to Acquire New Assets

Liti Capital Has Raised Another $5M From a Private Investor to Help Purchase More Litigation Assets and Expand Operations to Increase Market Cap and ROI for Investors

Geneva, Switzerland - July 8, 2021 - Liti Capital SA, the blockchain litigation finance company, announces an investment of $5 Million. This $5m will be used to purchase assets worth up to a potential $50m. Of the initial private raise of $12m, $10m was used to secure assets worth up to $100m of potential asset value. Once this new $5m is deployed in an asset purchase, the combined $150m potential value dwarfs the current market cap of $25m. Those assets are what back the LITI equity token. 

Litigation finance is the practice of purchasing a percentage of a lawsuit to help fund the effort and then helping to win the case in order to collect that same percentage of the award. The $5M investment will be used to purchase these litigation assets. As one of the highest ROIs of any asset class, the returns are not dependent on the state of the financial markets. This short video illustrates the value proposition. 

“Liti Capital is a company, not a cryptocurrency. Therefore, increasing our Market Cap is a good thing for our investors because it means we are putting new money to work to buy assets and create profits,” says CIO David Kay. “We were able to invest our first $10M and turn it into assets valued around $100M. We expect to use this new investment to produce similar results.”

Liti Capital launched its LITI equity token on June 24th and it wrapped LITI token, the wLITI, on June 29th. LITI tokens are available on liticapital.com and wLITI on uniswap.org. Liti Capital tokenized its equity shares with the goal of providing retail investors with investment opportunities previously only available to the top 1% of investors. Tokens lower the barrier of entry for smaller investments and reduce costs and increase security for both investors and the company. Additionally, tokens provide liquidity to an asset class that has traditionally been firmly illiquid. Liti Capital’s belief is “private equity for all.” 

Additional long-term goals include helping to protect the crypto community, prosecute scammers, and return the lost funds to the token holders with the hopes of preventing these activities in the future and ensuring a safe environment for investment and innovation. Liti Capital will spend between 5 and 10% of its investment capital investigating and funding litigation against these crypto con artists and scammers.

Liti Capital Announces Identifying Information of Their First Crypto Con Artist

Liti Capital Recently Fulfilled Its Promise to Identify and Pursue Cases of Cryptocurrency Fraud After Cracking the Case of a Defrauded Influencer and Exposing the Thief

Geneva, Switzerland - June 24, 2021 - Liti Capital SA, a Swiss Litigation Finance company, has just found and identified the perpetrator of a cryptocurrency scam. This comes days after their commitment to push back against fraud in the crypto community and help create a safe atmosphere for innovation and investment moving forward. By tokenizing their equity, Liti Capital introduces litigation finance to the blockchain, providing retail investors with a new asset class and giving them the opportunity to fight back against crypto criminals. 

Joel “Coach K” Kovshoff, a popular cryptocurrency influencer, was recently the victim of an elaborate con, resulting in the loss of $250,000 for himself and his investors. This is a common story in the crypto community, and the victims are rare to voice their misfortunes, particularly if they live in the public eye and their income is contingent on their reputations. As one of the few public figures to announce this potentially embarrassing story, he was able to catch the attention of Liti Capital through their mutual contact, Kurt Ivy at Splyt

The con artist used a unique tactic: he created a fake identity, complete with documentation, did extensive research on “Coach K,” and found him in public to slowly befriend him over time. This is how he was able to gain trust and eventually walk away with the money. He directed Joel to JD Capital, with whom Joel has worked with before, about a fund of CertiK he could purchase. After some more convincing, Joel paid the cost of the CertiK and waited for a response that did not come. However, the con artist may not have been as sophisticated as it seems. 

“These guys are acting with complete impunity,” David Kay, international litigator and CIO of Liti Capital said, “They’re so sure they won’t get caught that they don’t even cover their tracks. They don’t think anyone’s coming. Well, we’re coming.” Joel Kovshoff had given the con artist a chance to return the money, plus interest, before taking legal action. Liti Capital is on standby with a powerful team that has seen worldwide success. 

“The same tools we deploy to investigate international cases are the ones we will use to identify and pursue crypto scammers,” Jonas Rey, Co-Founder and Managing Director said, “My team of investigators and intelligence officers have found the con artist in question, his personal information, where the money is, and have engaged with counsel and security at his location. We will give him the weekend to reach out to us.”

Liti Capital launched the LITI token yesterday, Thursday, June 24, 2021, at 11:59 PM EDT, and the wLITI on Tuesday, June 29, 2021 at 6:00 PM EDT. The LITI token will be available for purchase on their website after passing KYC requirements. The wLITI will be available to trade for on Uniswap.

Liti Capital Announces Dual Token Launch to Fight Crypto Criminals

Liti Capital SA, Swiss Litigation Finance company, is launching one of their dual tokens, the LITI, on June 24th, 2021 at 11:59 PM EDT, and the other token, the wLITI, on June 29th, 2021 at 6:00 PM EDT. LITI tokens will become available on the Liti Capital website and wLITI on Uniswap. The LITI token represents tokenized equity in the company and grants voting rights and dividends. The wLITI token can be staked to provide liquidity. Both token holders can open a claim against a project and stake tokens on that claim to call attention to projects that have defrauded their investors. Liti Capital will spend from 5 to 10 percent of its yearly investment capital to pursue these bad actors.

By tokenizing their equity, Liti Capital decentralizes access to litigation finance, an asset class that has only been an option for wealthy investors until now. Litigation finance companies find lawsuits with large payouts and acquire a percentage of the case. This percentage is considered to be an “asset”. Then they help the plaintiff win the case and take a portion of the profits. These profits will be distributed to LITI holders as dividends. As one of the few asset-backed equity tokens on the market, LITI is a valuable token to hold regardless of volatility because litigation assets can generate on average 50%-100% ROI even during bear markets or economic crises. 

Liti Capital’s current “litigation assets” are valued at over $200 million. David Kay, CIO, won the largest arbitration award at the time in 2016, $1.4-billion in US cash and assets. Jonas Rey, Co-Founder, heads Athena Intelligence, a successful intelligence agency in Switzerland. Andy Christen, Co-Founder and Head of Vision and Operations, is an expert data scientist (Ph.D) and innovation entrepreneur who co-founded several fintech and blockchain startups. Jaime Delgado, Co-Founder, Head of Technical Development, has a PhD in electronics engineering and over 15 years of programming, machine learning, data analysis, and blockchain technology. 

To purchase a LITI token, investors must pass KYC requirements. This token is only available for purchase on the Liti Capital website. Holding a LITI grants protections under Swiss law, dividends, and voting rights. The wrapped LITI (wLITI) will be available on Uniswap and other DEXs in the future and does not require KYC. LITI and wLITI tokens are utilized in the following ways:

Liti Capital has committed to locking $1.2 million in liquidity on Uniswap for 36 months. Up to 16% of LITI tokens are reserved for the team for salaries and expenses, as well as incentive plans for team (issued upon achievements) and community members (e.g., bounties payment).

Liti Capital Announces Tokenized Private Equity for Litigation Finance

Liti Capital Puts Litigation Finance in the Hands of the Retail Investor Using Tokenized Shares, a Decentralization Tool That Will Enable Fundraising and Participation in Important Legal Battles

Geneva, Switzerland - June 14, 2021 - Liti Capital SA, a Swiss Litigation Finance company, is announcing their launch into the world of crypto tokenization with the goal of providing retail investors with investment opportunities previously only available to the top 1% of investors. This puts the excitement and voting rights directly in the hands of the average investor. As one of the few asset-backed equity tokens soon to be on the blockchain, the LITI token can provide high ROI even in a bear market.

Litigation Finance is the practice of buying a share of a court case and then helping to win that case, taking a portion of the profits. Buying a share of the case provides the plaintiff with the funds to continue their side of the battle. Then Liti Capital hires the best lawyers, and if they win the case, help to find and collect the award. Liti Capital considers ongoing court cases to be “assets,” and these assets are what stand behind the LITI token. Because of the large payouts of these high-profile cases, these assets are extremely valuable. The Liti Capital team has extensive experience and a wide array of tools, including AI, that will help determine which cases are winnable as well as profitable. 

David Kay, CIO, successfully enforced what was at the time the largest international arbitration award in history, bringing in more than one billion US dollars of cash and securities. Liti Capital has already raised $12 million in cash and litigation assets from private investors, owns a share of 3 cases valued at over $200 million, and is ready to open up to a wider market. 

“We wanted to find a way to get everyone involved,” said Jonas Rey, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Liti Capital, “but how the financial markets are structured all but prevents that. The blockchain finally gave us the answer we were looking for.” Liti Capital uses the LITI token to represent a share in the company under Swiss law. While the LITI token gives access to voting rights and to dividend payment upon completion of a KYC process, it is not on any exchanges by design. The Company made a wrapped LITI (wLITI) for trading on Uniswap and soon other DEXes.

Long-term goals include helping to protect the crypto community, prosecute scammers, and return the lost funds to the token holders with the hopes of preventing these activities in the future and ensuring a safe environment for investment and innovation. Liti Capital will spend between 5 and 10% of its investment capital investigating and funding litigation against these scam coins and rug pulls.
