Freeway, a financial scheme where users buy « Superchargers », which are crypto « simulations » that promise to pay out rewards of up to 43% annually, seems to have taken the off-ramp. The project announced to its users that due to « unprecedented volatility in Foreign Exchange and Cryptocurrency markets in recent times », they would be pausing their Supercharger program. The project reportedly halted withdrawals on more than $100 million worth of assets.
Worryingly, the company also removed all mentions of its team from their website, and reportedly removed an attestation to the company’s financial backing as well.
The day before the project announced the pause, crypto whistleblower and researcher FatMan published a Twitter thread urging people to withdraw funds immediately because he believed they were operating a Ponzi scheme. « In my opinion, it’s likely that Freeway will collapse within the next few months and that all depositors will lose everything. »
