Ava Labs CEO denies CryptoLeaks' claims as 'conspiracy theory nonsense'

Ava Labs CEO Emin Gün Sirer has dismissed sensational allegations from CryptoLeaks that his company used litigation to “harm” competitors and fool regulators, labeling it as “conspiracy theory nonsense.”

Sirer made the comments in an Aug. 28 Twitter post to his 280,500 followers, referring to an Aug. 26 article from CryptoLeaks alleging the company formed a “secret pact” with U.S. law firm Roche Freedman to use the American legal system “gangster style” to “attack and harm crypto organizations.”

On Friday, CryptoLeaks published a series of candid videos from an unknown source purportedly showing U.S. Attorney Kyle Roche of Roche Freedman LLP detailing his partnership and relationship with Emin Gün Sirer and Kevin Sekniqi, the respective CEO and COO of Ava Labs. 

CryptoLeaks claimed that Roche Freedman and Kyle Roche have a deal to provide Ava Labs with legal services in exchange for the AVAX tokens and Ava Labs equity, and would also use “litigation as a tool” to disrupt competitors and misdirect regulators such as the Security Exchange Commission (SEC) and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

The publication also said the videos of Roche suggest there was a tight-knit relationship between Roche and Sirer, which began in academia, and that they also moved into a co-working space together in Aug. 2019, around the time that the deal was made for him to provide legal services in exchange for token supply. Roche stated: 

“Gün [Sirer] … we did a deal, where I agreed to provide legal services in exchange for a certain percentage of the token supply.”

Another video also shows Roche saying that they “used [litigation services] as a strategic instrument to support Ava Labs.”

“I sue half the companies in this space, I know where this market is going, I believe [I am] one of the top 10 [crypto experts] in this world… I’ve seen the insides of every single crypto company,” according to the video.
