Barry would later claim to have bought ETC at $0.50, which suggests he bought it before Poloniex listed. This would suggest that Barry at least knew about the listing in advance and profited accordingly. Anyone with foreknowledge of ETC’s listing on Poloniex, including many people on Twitter and in Barry Silbert’s circle, reaped a windfall when it was listed.
False, there was a big OTC market for ETC way before Poloniex listed it. Why do you think Poloniex listed it in the first place?
I know a couple of people who bought it OTC before Poloniex listed it and I started mining before it got listed there.
