Luxor refutes claims its Bitcoin hashrate-backed product is BlockFi, Celsius 2.0


– An upcoming Bitcoin (BTC) hashrate-backed product by Luxor Technology is refuting claims that it is similar to failed products by BlockFi or Celsius. Luxor’s product relies on proof-of-work for returns, not ponzi schemes.
– The legitimacy of Luxor’s hashrate-backed product was discussed in a podcast by What Bitcoin Did. Concerns were expressed about the worst-case scenario for the product.
