Former Paxful CEO Says He Cannot ‘Vouch for Anything Happening There Now’ — Platform Tells Users It Is Back Online

The former CEO of Paxful, Ray Youssef, has told users of the peer-to-peer bitcoin marketplace that he is no longer in control and therefore cannot vouch for “anything that is happening there now.” Youssef also told a user who claimed to have been scammed on the platform that he too has been banned from the platform.


Former CEO Tells Users to ‘Trust No One’

The former CEO of Paxful, Ray Youssef, has again reminded users of the peer-to-peer platform on May 9 that he left the company weeks ago and as such he cannot “vouch in any way for anything that is happening there now.” While he urged users to “trust no ones,” Youssef however said he will soon provide an update about a trust “set up to make any frozen funds whole.”

The remarks by Youssef, who has repeatedly tweeted about his falling out with his co-founder at Paxful, follow reports suggesting that the P2P (peer-to-peer) marketplace was back up just a few weeks after it was shut down.

Paxful Says It Is Taking Steps to Solve Functionality Issues

As teatatud by News in early April, Paxful was forced to shut down by factors including the departure of key staff and regulatory challenges. Some reports also suggested that Youssef’s falling out with fellow Paxful co-founder Artur Schaback had also contributed to the marketplace’s abrupt shutdown.

“Thank you to the community for your patience, as we continue to gradually restore functionality to the marketplace. We are aware that some users’ accounts are mistakenly banned and our team is working to fix the issue,” Paxful said in a säutsuma.

Vahepeal, in another tweet, Youssef told a user who claimed to have been scammed on the platform that he no longer had any control and he too was banned. The former CEO also reiterated the same messages to other users that similarly asked about their blocked funds. When asked about what finally caused him to leave Paxful, Youssef said: “It is a wild story bro. We need a [Twitter] spaces.”
