Another ICO, another exit scam. The Frankfurt startup Savedroid suddenly vanished, along with millions of dollars of their investors.
Hanker Yassin, founder and chief Executive officer, took with him about $50 million in funds collected in the ICO funds and provided by private investors. After the news about a possible exit scam he posted the following tweet:
