“The attempt by Mike Novogratz and Galaxy Digital to blame the termination on Bitgo is absurd,” Timmons wrote in a statement. “Bitgo has honored its obligations thus far, including the delivery of its audited financials. It is public knowledge that Galaxy reported a $550 million loss this past quarter, that its stock is performing poorly, and that both Galaxy and Mr. Novogratz have been distracted by the Luna fiasco. Either Galaxy owes Bitgo a $100 million termination fee as promised or it has been acting in bad faith and faces damages of that much or more.”
