MIDEX Scam Exchange The Un-Deletable Truth

in #ico2 years ago (edited)

The following is just some of the scandal carried out by the founders of MIDEX and their two little puppets

My name is Chris Butler, former US Regional Officer of the Midex Exchange. Which is just a fancy way of saying Ambassador. I have a duty to stand up for my co-workers. I also have a duty to the entire crypto community to expose this group of people for what they truly are.

Rest assured that this is not baseless finger pointing or the work of a "Greedy disgruntled employee". Those of you that know me, know very well that I would not point a finger at another without undeniable, tangible evidence attached. To really drive this point home, that I don't give a S&^@ about their tokens or what they owe me, I have openly forfeit all payments owed to me in lieu of them doing the right thing and paying the other 8 employees that they stole from.

I started a GoFundMe to help out those that were effected by the Midex Scandal. I wanted to leave emotion out of this article but if you want to know more detail about how they hurt a lot of decent hard working people please visit the GoFundMe page.

I will be including several screenshots taken over the course of 10 months. During that time, many of the staff were not aware of the founder's true intentions. Most of what they say is coming from the founders. They were not aware that they were lying for the founders.

Below is a legend that labels all the staff that you will see in the screenshots. This is an attempt to alleviate any confusion as to who is actually at fault and who is being victimized.


• Chris Butler (fired without pay)
• Shebin John (fired without pay)
• Coyote (active, stuck)
• Taha Ben Ali (fired without pay)
• Noel Amadi (active, proud puppet of puppets)

Core Team (fired without pay)

• Polina (fired without pay)
• Natalia Lukina (fired without pay)
• Nick Barry (???)
• Ksenia (fired without pay)
• Dmitry Machikhin CEO (fired without pay)
• Mike Blackwood (fired without pay)

Core team (puppets and acting voices of the founders)

• Arseniy Dain
• Marina

Founders (tried their hardest to remain anonymous)

• Julia Pomuleva
• Peter Buyukli

First, a little background info

The core team of the company saw Midex through a successful ICO in which over $20,000,000 USD was raised. They were fired without pay as well. Even the CEO!

This all happened behind closed doors. The ambassadors were lied to about the status of the core team and we were also denied all attempts to perform and prevented from doing our jobs which was later used against us. We promoted and advocated to the best of our abilities. We believed in the project. Not one of the employees slacked off. Everyone was active every single day.

I personally offered Midex representation at several events at my expense. Absolutely no marketing was allowed post ICO. They fired the entire team, they expected to just fade away. They never expected that their identities would be revealed and so now they are stuck pretending to build an exchange.

Our project manager that we answered to was fired and nobody from the Midex team would even tell us.
We had to find out this information for ourselves. The lies continue to this day. I’m surprised that this is not yet public knowledge. The core team is scared to come forward because of NDAs and physical threats. I am counting on at least a few of them to come forward after they see that they are not in any danger, legal or physical.

Below are some of the conversations that show our payment schedule and forced vesting schedule. Neither were agreed the ambassadors. The original agreement was that the ambassadors would be paid, in full, after the ICO.
Some have duplicates and some are out of order. This is because when they found out that we would take this lying down they banned me and began deleting posts. Luckily, I was able to have most of the remaining members in the group help by forwarding me the messages and taking screenshots.

Etherscan: https://etherscan.io/token/0xeb72f169016fec42b63ae5e87207f0fb274408c7


Total Supply: 75 Million

Suspicious Transfer Of 54.95Million around the end of Token Sale:






5 Million MDX with some NANJ Supporter(Holding around a Billion Nanj):

Around 4 Million Transfer done Initially before the Token Sale:

Wallet Used in the Token Sale Now only contains around 1100 ETH (Around $330K) whereas they raised around $20Million and still no liquidity to the exchange:

No Burn happened, though they advertised heavily and have it coded in the Smart Contract.

Here is the letter that my Lawyer sent to the founders... Three times.

It was never answered. It was, however, met with ridicule and a smear campaign against me and a 2 month Spam Attack on all of my email accounts that they knew of and my cell phone number too. It was like an instant message bomb from 1998 that lasted for two months. I know it was them because the first account that was attacked was the email address that I created for the sole purpose of signing up to the exchange. It felt like I was getting DOS attacked by texts, emails, phone calls and voicemails at least once per minute.

To Julia Pomuleva and Peter Buyukli
Founders of Midex

Ref.: Demand for Return of Misappropriated Funds.


Midex (hereinafter referred to as “Midex”, the “Company” or the “Project”) is a company that has offered MDX Tokens to >the Project’s Ambassadors and staff as incentive for their efforts and expertise in the involvement of the promotion and >exposure of the Project.

Here is some of the smear campaign that a not yet banned member sent me.

midex smear against ambassadors.jpgmidex smear3.jpgmidex smear4.jpgmidex smear5.jpgmidex smear 6.jpgmidex smear7.jpgmidex smear8.jpg

Everything Noel says is a flat out lie. They claim I sold my MIDEX on Etherdelta and even posted my ETH wallet address. One look and you can clearly see that I sold a few hundred on Ether Delta. The other several thousand I used for promotions and were transferred to four other users that dispersed them accordingly. None of those found their way to EtherDelta. Not only did I work everyday for these clowns, I also did more than my duties by translating the website and made corrections of English spelling and grammar throughout the exchange.

There is so much more to say but I am too busy to write about Midex all day. I'm doing this now on steemit because I want it recorded forever on a blockchain. If anyone has any doubts of the authenticity of the claims here in this article, write them in the comments below or contact me directly. This is just the tip of the iceberg.


I thought for sure these secret founders would have sent a representative by now to any of the open platforms I've invited them to for a discussion. I've given them ample opportunities to defend their actions. Silence is wise on their part. I will give them credit there. They will have their community manager puppets answer in one place only. That being their main chat.
Oh... Speaking of.... Since I posted this, their main Telegram group was taken over by other truth tellers from inside their organization. The guilty were banned from their own group and I was even given my rights to join back. I want it to be known that I regretfully had nothing to do with that "hack" as they are calling it in their fancy new group. It wasn't a hack. It was an admin with admin privileges that got sick and tired of the lies. I wish it was me. That would've been cool.
