More than 32,000 families cannot access the savings in the form of bitcoins that they had deposited in products of the firm Arbistar 2.0.

Several affected by the blocking of their investments in bitcoins already speak of an alleged pyramid scam and a company specialized in fraudulent operations, Tulip Research, figures the volume allegedly affected at about 850 million euros.

“This is not a pyramid scam, or a Ponzi, or any story”, defends the director of Arbistar 2.0, Santiago Fuentes, in a statement made by videoconference to Televisión Canaria, “it is just a computer error that we have to settle, liquidate and continue with our businesses. “

Sources confirm that “there are 32,000 families affected” and insists that it is a “computer error”, but argues that at no time have they tried to “close and disappear.”

As for the volume of money involved, he maintains that it does not reach “not even a tenth” of what is speculated by some of those affected. But it does put a figure “it could be around 10,000 bitcoins”, which translated into euros, according to the price of that virtual currency, amounts to 93.4 million euros.

Arbistar 2.0 ensures that this week it will launch a platform to facilitate those affected to recover their investment “in six or twelve months”.

“At the very least, everyone is going to get back what they contributed,” promises the company’s founder, who assures that he has not left Tenerife (Spain), but prefers not to reveal where he is, for security reasons.

“I am not going to move, I have not done anything wrong,” he assured Radiotelevisión Canaria in Spain.
