Nexo considers that the claim has been brought opportunistically, some time after the events in question took place during 2020 through to March 2021. Nexo had considered the matter closed, and is disappointed to see it re-emerge.

The claimants are high net worth, sophisticated investors with backgrounds in fintech. The claimants used the Nexo platform to make several sizeable and lucrative transactions, notably involving their NEXO tokens.
