Behind the Tezos Scandal: Conflicts of Interest, Self-Dealing and Bullying - Ep.024

By Laura Shin

Gideon Lewis-Kraus, a contributing writer at Wired, came out with a cover story in the magazine earlier this week that investigated the actions of both sides in the Tezos boardroom battle. Lewis-Kraus walks us through the accusations on both sides and explains how the balance of the blame seems to lie with foundation head, Johann Gevers, who had numerous conflicts of interest, proposed an unjustified payment for himself and appears to have tried to revive his faltering company Monetas by riding on the coattails of Tezos's success with the ICO. Lewis-Kraus also tells us what he thinks are the big takeaways from the Tezos fight for other crypto entrepreneurs.
