Hi Ivan,

Hello,

It’s quite obvious you are working with Arcade City and have some vested interest in them. And I appreciate you extending an olive branch in reaching out to me.

I am very well aware there is actual code on your github page and most likely you are part of the Antwerp team that actually has programming expertise. (something Chris does not have). Understand, I hold no animosity towards you nor anyone else that works for Arcade City. My main problem is Chris, and it would benefit you to learn more about this person who calls himself your “Mayor”

Read this article I wrote detailing the scams and trail of broken promises perpetrated by Chris over a period of more than 4 years:

Then see how he unprofessionally responded in a Reddit AMA: |

A journalist from Fusion dug into my claims and many others uncovering more evidence of fraud, broken promises, and lies:

If you want to listen to it told from an objective perspective see here: http://thelavaflow.com/gamification-arcade-city-edition-tlf045/

Also, if you want to see how Chris himself responds to criticism listen to the last 20 minutes of this podcast: https://www.spreaker.com/user/mikeallen/on-the-air-with-mike-allen_5

His most recent investor, Roger Ver has regretted investing in Arcade City and has publicly voiced his disappointment with how badly the investment money was spent:

Dont take it from me. Here’s a post on reddit just a few weeks ago started by someone else bringing up your proposed ICO:

Lastly, Chris has a warrant out for his arrest in the state of New Hampshire:

As you can see, the PR around Arcade City is so bad the Ethereum community’s initial reaction is ridicule. This is how low the confidence in Arcade City has fallen, and that can all be blamed on Chris. Chris wasted $270,000 with nothing to show for it. What makes you think he will responsibly manage a $5–10 million ICO?

I’ve worked with Chris before. He’s erratic, manic, and untrustworthy. But worst of all, he does not have a history of keeping his promises. Be careful working with him, and make sure to ask for money up front before you do anything. Frankly, if I were you, I would find a way to have yourself and the rest of the Antwerp team oust Chris and change the name to something else. The press surrounding Arcade City is so bad that it’s probably better that you break off and start a new company without all the negative stigma attached to Arcade City. I personally do not have a problem with Arcade City as a company and an idea. I have a problem with Chris, who owes many others and myself tens of thousands of dollars. He has yet to pay any of that money back despite multiple chances to do so.

If you successfully get rid of Chris, change the leadership, and re-brand the company. I will gladly edit my Medium posts to detail such changes so that people know that Chris is no longer in charge.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
