Binance sued for freezing Nimbus Platform Ponzi funds

Kirill Medvedev has filed go well with towards Binance for allegedly freezing funds tied to the Nimbus Platform Ponzi scheme.

Medvedev (proper) is a crypto bro primarily based out of Florida. He heads up Tenzor Capital, a Gibraltar shell firm that pitches itself as a “$40M enterprise capital fund … specializing in rising cryptoassets and blockchain startups”.

In accordance with Medvedev’s September twenty second filed Grievance, Binance, as BAM Buying and selling Providers Inc. and Binance Holdings Restricted, minimize him off from his account in March 2023.

Medvedev claims he opened a Binance account in Might 2019 and

entered a number of agreements for the acquisition of 58 bitcoins valued at over $2,378,000.00 as of March 2022.

Medvedev funded his Account utilizing these bitcoins. From that point and as much as March 2023, Medvedev was utilizing bought bitcoins for buying and selling as a supply of income.

Medvedev contacted Binance buyer help, who knowledgeable him “his Account had been blocked resulting from an inside assessment.”

After days of communication, Medvedev was advised by Binance to contact an “officer in command of this case” at a courtroom in Madrid, Spain.

Medvedev acquired authorized counsel in Spain, which led to the invention of a felony investigation into Nimbus Platform.

Medvedev’s Account had been frozen resulting from an ongoing felony continuing in Spain, particularly within the Juzgado Central de Instrucción No. 6 of the Audiencia Nacional, recognized by continuing quantity DPA 78/2020 (“Continuing”).

Throughout Authorized and its attorneys intervened within the Continuing on behalf of Medvedev.

The Continuing revolves round a failed Preliminary Coin Providing (“ICO”) launched by Nimbus Platform about 5 years in the past, which is presently the topic of the beforehand talked about felony investigation in Spain.

Medvedev claims his Spanish authorized counsel “didn’t discover any order immediately authorizing Binance to freeze Medvedev’s account.”

He does nevertheless affirm that the bitcoin in his Binance account is linked to Nimbus Platform.

Medvedev’s solely connection to the Continuing is the truth that the bitcoins in his Account at one level belonged to Nimbus Platform.

However, Medvedev had bought these bitcoins in good religion years after the Nimbus Platform ICO, as acknowledged above.

Taking that at face worth, it seems neither Medvedev or Tenzor Capital ever had something to do with Nimbus Platform.

When Medvedev queried Binance on the freeze, Binance advised him it was

not at liberty to reveal such order…”

Following this response, Binance didn’t present additional clarifications.

That is typical of cooperation between cryptocurrency exchanges and felony investigations.

Medvedev subsequent claims he logged into his account in August 2023,

solely to find that considerably all of his funds had disappeared, leaving solely round $90.

Medvedev claims neither he or his Spanish authorized counsel receiving notification from Binance of the Spanish courtroom concerning what seems to be a seizure.

Medvedev thus concludes his “funds have been illegally taken by Binance with none prior discover or legitimate justification.”

It’s presently unclear who possesses the funds that have been transferred out of Medvedev’s Account.

Medvedev’s lawsuit seeks to get better his funds and extra damages.

What I’m not 100% clear on is how the funds wound up in Medvedev’s account. It sounds like he bought the bitcoin from somebody concerned in Nimbus Platform.

And if that’s the case, then he has no declare to the the bitcoin (his beef is definitely with whoever offered him the bitcoin). The bitcoin itself could be the proceeds of crime, which now seem to have been seized by authorities.

Sadly we don’t have any additional info on the Spanish felony investigation into Nimbus Platform.

For reference, Nimbus Platform is an MLM crypto Ponzi that launched in 2020.

My intestine feeling is who Medvedev purchased the bitcoin from is it would reveal a connection to Nimbus Platform (potential cash laundering).

One different factor I’ve to level is that the CFTC has sued Binance and proprietor Changpeng Zhao. The CFTC filed go well with in March 2023, proper across the time Medvedev’s bitcoin was frozen.

It’s not clear if US authorities are cooperating or are part of the Spanish Nimbus Platform investigation.

Through the years and a number of reboots there have been quite a few names connected to Nimbus Platform:

  • Andrea Zanon, authentic Nimbus Platform CEO

  • Fernando Martinho – second Nimbus Platform CEO
  • Alex Lemberg – third Nimbus Platform CEO

  • Patricio Pozzi – fourth Nimbus Platform CEO

BehindMLM can reveal we acquired a stop and desist from Nimbus Platform’s authorized platform in June 2022.

That is my last response and I take into account this matter closed.


The third Nimbus Platform reboot kicked off in late 2022 with SYNTA token. Aside from bagholders from Nimbus’ earlier Ponzi iterations, there doesn’t appear to be a lot curiosity.

Because it ties into Nimbus Platform, I’ve added Medvedev’s Binance lawsuit to BehindMLM calendar. Keep tuned for updates as we monitor the case.
