Tel Aviv Court Gives Moshe Hogeg 30 Days to Settle $4M Lawsuit

Moshe Hogeg, the co-founder and chairman of venture capital investment fund Singulariteam, and the alleged head of Stox Technologies, has been given 30 days to settle with a Chinese investor. The disgruntled investor has brought a 17 million Israeli new shekels (approximately $4.23 million) lawsuit against Hogeg for allegedly misappropriating several million dollars worth of funds raised through the Floyd Mayweather-promoted Stox initial coin offering (ICO).

Sirin Labs CEO Given 30 Days to Settle Lawsuit Alleging Misappropriation of Funds Raised via Stox ICO

Tel Aviv District Court judge Michal Amit-Anisman has given Moshe Hogeg 30 days to reach a compromise with Huwan Hugh, a Chinese investor who filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Hogeg in January of this year.

The lawsuit was also brought against the former Singulariteam chief financial officer (CFO) and current Saga Foundation CFO Yaron Shalem and the Stox Technologies company. The complaint alleges that Hogeg intentionally misrepresented how the funds raised through the Stox ICO would be used and distributed.

Moshe Hogeg is also the chief executive officer of cryptocurrency smartphone startup Sirin Labs and owner of the Beitar Jerusalem soccer club.

Judge Recommends Involvement of Third-Party Mediator

According to local media outlet Globes, judge Amit-Anisman brought the parties to the temporary agreement after three hours of discussion, specifying that requests will not be made at this time, rather the parties will come directly or by a third party who is a mediator. The judge recommended Meira Harel as a possible mediator, describing Harel as an expert in the field of cryptographic currencies.

Globes also reported that it was further agreed that after a period of 30 days or a longer period, insofar as the parties request an agreement to extend the 30 days granted to them, each party will be entitled to petition the court with a request to make a decision on the pending applications.

Emphasizing the challenges of adjudicating cases involving cryptocurrency amid the current global climate of opaque regulatory apparatus pertaining to crypto assets, Judge Amit-Anisman noted that the case raises serious questions that have not yet been answered, neither in Israel nor by regulators in the world.
