“Every creature on earth returns to home. It is ironic that we have made wildlife refuges for ibis, pelican, egret, wolf, crane, deer, mouse, moose, and bear, but not for ourselves in the places we live day after day. We understand that the loss of habitat is the most disastrous event that can occur to a free creauture.
We fervently point out how other creatures' natural territories have become surrounded by cities, ranches, highways, noise, and other dissonance, as though we are not affected also.
We know that for creatures to live on, they must at least from time to time have a home place, a place where they feel both protected and free.” -Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Lawyers for Israeli #Crypto Entrepreneur Say White Paper Confers No Legal Responsibility
Moshe Hogeg, the Israeli entrepreneur behind #blockchain firm Stox (STX), has denied misappropriating investors’ #funds in a response to the lawsuit filed against him. Online newspaper The Times of Israel reported the development on Saturday, Feb. 9.
As Bitcoin Info wrote earlier in January, Chinese #investor Zhewen Hu has sued Stox and its founder for $4.6 million. Hu claims to have invested a total of around $3.8 million worth of #Ethereum (ETH) in an open source, Ethereum-based prediction market platform.
According to the lawsuit, Hu’s anticipation was that the successful development of Stox’s prediction #market platform would boost the value of the native #STX token. However, the plaintiff believes that only $5 million of successfully raised $34 million went to fund Stox.
Moreover, Hu alleges that Hogeg used the rest of the amount to invest in other initial coin offerings (ICO) such as messaging app Telegram’s #ICO, which was conducted in April 2018.
Nonetheless, in a response to the suit filed on Feb. 5, Hogeg’s #lawyerswrote that the Stox white paper is of “a descriptive nature only and not binding.” That said, the document did not present any obligatory program and therefore confers no legal responsibility on its issuers, Hogeg’s attorneys concluded.
According to the The Times of #Israel, Hogeg has denied any wrongdoing, describing the lawsuit as an “extortion attempt.” He argues that the STX token is not a security and does not grant any ownership rights in the company, apparently citing Stox’s contribution terms.
In addition, as STX Technologies Limited is a Gibraltar-based entity, Hogeg believes Israel is not the proper #jurisdiction to proceed with the case.
Hogeg is known for his involvement in several #crypto-related ventures: he founded blockchain smartphone developer Sirin Labs, along with serving as chairman of LeadCoin, a blockchain-based decentralized lead-sharing network.
The Times of Israel notes that Hogeg has spent several million dollars on different #projects within the last few months. #bitcoininfo #bitcoinnews
