Palatinus then asks Back to liquidate the tweet, and Trezor CTO Pavol Rusnak also tells him to delete the tweets tags.
“Please eliminate mij from your tweet, I wasgoed not present during the filming,” Rusnak exclaims.
Adam Back then apologizes for his tweets by telling, “Jan Čapek demoed a unit — That is it — Halong Mining is a separate company and unrelated to Slush or Trezor companies — Sorry for the confusion if people inferred more by tagging.”
