Crypto lender Nexo has tried to silence an anonymous Twitter account with a cease and desist letter.
The account, which styles itself in the third person as Otter.
Otter published a series of tweets on June 26 claiming that Nexo’s co-founders had stolen funds from a charity.
The tweets have generated thousands of likes and retweets.
Later the same day, Nexo published two items on its website — one of them a cease and desist letter taking aim at the Twitter account.
The other item is a blog post that seeks to debunk some of the claims made by Otter.
Nexo offers interest rates of 18% on crypto holdings. Nexo claims to serve more than four million customers. It has over $12 billion in assets.
