The cryptocurrency world was stunned this morning when the CEO of WaltonChain, Bing Mok, announced an unprecedented charitable giveaway of 10 million WTC tokens on Twitter.
“This is our way of giving back to this wonderful community,” he said.
Mok was announced as the winner of all 10 million tokens in a press release five minutes later.
“I feel like the luckiest man in the world,” Mok said. “And I assure you this press release was not pre-written.”
Mok said that while the optics of a CEO winning his own prize aren’t great, he promised to distribute a small portion of his winnings to the community.
“We are going to hand out 2.4 WTC to 100 winners via our Twitter account,” he said. “We can’t wait to share the wealth with real, live, non-bot, not-employed-by WaltonChain members of the community.
“As a company whose primary mission is the eradication of counterfeiting and fraud, we take this responsibility seriously. After all, what kind of company would risk its reputation over $30 in tokens?”
Mok added that WaltonChain’s Director of Social Media Strategy, a cognitively-challenged three-year-old donkey named Wally, has been re-assigned within the corporate structure.
“This was a long-planned internal transition and has nothing to do with any recent developments on Twitter,” Mok said.
