Digitex Futures CEO Goes Furious After Testing The Platform: “What the f**k do I do with this?” He Said
go well for Adam Todd, CEO of Digitex Futures, the trading platform that
promised to be the new Bitmex Killer. After testing the product presented to
him by his team of developers, the platform was virtually unusable.
The community of the project that
has over 1.5 million people on its waiting list, and more than 70k+ members on
its Telegram group witnessed how its leader announced that the platform
scheduled to be launched at the end of the month, had to be delayed until
However, the CEO’s announcement
was not polite, nor did it seek to calm its users. Clearly furious, Todd
explained that he was not going to give his users a piece of garbage. His words
were very direct:

What the f**k do I do with this? We’ve been delivered this piece of garbage that doesn’t even work. It doesn’t work.
After this announcement, the native Digitex token (DGTX) dropped more than 70% in less than an hour, which represented a historic level for this platform.
Mr. Todd explains that he is not
willing to give up or disappoint his community. He explained that he had
already assembled a new team of developers, emphasizing that from now on he
will be personally supervising the progress of the team as an “unyielding
Todd’s announcement triggered a
wave of rage similar to the one he himself showed in the video, but the team
also received various displays of support.
Several Twitter accounts urged
Todd to focus on developing a functional platform. Some shared optimism but
disappointment was undoubtedly the most common emotion.
