NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES OR TO US NEWSWIRES
TORONTO, ONTARIO, May 29, 2017 –The Special Committee of the board of directors of BitRush Corp. (CSE:BRH, Frankfurt:0XSN) (“BRH”, “BitRush” or the “Company”) is providing the following warning to shareholders.
It has recently come to the Company’s attention that Werner Boehm, its former CEO, has initiated a scheme (dubbed the “Initial Coin Offering” or a “Litigation Coin Project”). As part of the Initial Coin Offering, Mr. Boehm purports to offer a stake in the profits of certain litigation in exchange for currency or for shares of BitRush. In support of the Initial Coin Offering, Boehm has launched the website litigation-coin (.com).
For clarity, the Initial Coin Offering is not an initiative that is being carried out by BitRush, and the Initial Coin Offering is not connected in any way to BitRush. Further, the exchange of BitRush shares offered by Mr. Boehm may be contrary to the Cease Trade Order imposed by the Ontario Securities Commission on December 2, 2016. BitRush shareholders are warned not to participate in Boehm’s latest illegitimate scheme. Mr. Boehm continues to refuse to account for hundreds of thousands of dollars of shareholder funds raised in 2015 and 2016 that he transferred to a bank account in Austria while he was the CEO of BitRush. This and other conduct by Mr. Boehm that was harmful to the Company and its shareholders will soon be addressed by the Ontario Superior Court – Commercial List.
