Cryptoeats, компания, которая, как сообщается, подняла 8 миллионов в раунде финансирования серии A для создания криптографической альтернативы Ubereats, исчез после запуска своего токена. По оценкам, запуск мог занять больше, чем £500K from investors after the launch of its official token dubbedeats.The alleged scam was promoted by UK influencers and manufactured related apparel, and even hosting a launching party in London.

Cryptoeats Initiative Vanishes After Token Launch

Cryptoeats, a company that proposed to build a crypto-based Ubereats alternative, vanished from the internet just minutes after launching its official token. Компания, which had an official website and claimed to have raised funds to build their proposal, stated it had run a public beta of the service, partnering with food chains like Nandos and McDonald’с.

Furthermore, the startup claimed it had already onboarded more than 100,000 customers, who have signed up to download the app and use it on launch day. But the developers of eats, the native token of the platform, emptied the wallet holding the funds coming from the initial token sale, stealing more than £500K from investors, в соответствии с reports. Soon after this, all of the social media accounts of the startup disappeared, along with its website.


Cryptoeats Looked Legit

Cryptoeats worried about looking legitimate before disappearing. The company first outed a PR statement where it claimed it had raised $8 million in its series A funding round in 2020. The PR statement, that was published on October 16, declared the company wasset to take a large slice of the $16.6 billion delivery app market.The statement was issued using Globenewswire and was featured on Yahoo Finances website, but both references have been eliminated now.

At a local level, Cryptoeats also did its work bringing U.K. influencers to promote the new initiative among their fanbase. Joey Essex, a reality TV celebrity that promoted Cryptoeats, stated to local media he lamented the situation. Essex stressed:

Im fuming. This company used my name to dupe lots of people into investing money. Its disgusting and I feel bad for anybody in that situation.

But Essex was not the only local celebrity that promoted Cryptoeats. Lots of other influencers attended a launch party last week in London, where Cryptoeats apparel was shown and worn by some of the assistants.
