Inderes foorumilta käyttäjän sukkasaippua viestissä tesseract in vastine:
Tesseract is not in a contractual relationship with Coinmotion’s clients using Coinmotion’s korkotili product, and does not know who these end-users are. Hence, because we cannot confirm if someone is a client of Coinmotion and using the korkotili product through them or not, we can unfortunately not comment on any matters specific to each individual end-user.
To answer some of the questions you might have, we have prepared a short summary on the claims made by Coinmotion in their statement of 16 December 2022 regarding the service. By our count, there are severe inaccuracies and outright lies in the statement released by Coinmotion, and we wish to answer these to bring as much clarity towards the end-users of Coinmotion’s korkotili product as possible.
Q: I have invested into the korkotili product via Coinmotion who is now stating that the korkotili product is not theirs but Tesseract’s. Can you please elaborate?
A: A product called “Tesseractin korkotilituote” doesn’t exist, only Coinmotion’s korkotili product.
As per its Virtual Asset Service Provider registration with the FIN-FSA, Tesseract only forms B2B relationship with institutional clients -such as Coinmotion- to whom it offers various digital asset investment products. This fact has been discussed and agreed upon between Coinmotion and Tesseract already in 2019, prior to the launch of Coinmotion’s korkotili.
Coinmotion’s korkotili product and the risk-return profile of it has been structured in collaboration between Tesseract and Coinmotion, for Coinmotion to offer to their own users. Tesseract has disclosed all risks related to the product to Coinmotion, who is in accordance with the contractual responsibility and regulatory requirements accountable for disclosing these facts to their end-users when marketing the korkotili product to them.
Q: How and when have the losses occurred?
A: The losses have occurred in June and November due to certain institutional borrowers defaulting on their loan payments. We are bounded by strict confidentiality agreements towards all of our institutional borrowers and are hence not able to disclose any names of the borrowers or the terms of the loans in public at this stage.
Q: Apparently some of the credit losses have occurred already during the summer. Why were the korkotili users informed of the losses only now, mid-December?
A: We cannot comment on this since Coinmotion owns the customer relationship with the korkotili product users, and has hence been the only party communicating towards the consumers on all matters related to the korkotili product at all times.
Overall, the situation with regard to the non-performing loans from June and November remains unclear as to how much of the loans will be paid back and when. We will provide all necessary information to Coinmotion for them to communicate onwards to their korkotili clients when such information is available.
Q: Coinmotion is stating that Tesseract has marketed the product on its own website as being overcollateralized. Is this accurate?
A: This is simply not true. Marketing and all other communications related to the korkotili product towards the consumers has been done solely by Coinmotion at all times. There has not been any marketing material presented by Tesseract on their website regarding the korkotili product.
The korkotili product created as per request of Coinmotion is considered a high-risk lending product, in which the risks were realised as a result of the market wide turmoil in crypto. The collateralization level of the loans extended to the defaulted counterparties has varied between being overcollateralized to non-collateralised. As with all of Tesseract’s products, we have been transparent about the characteristics, risks and collateral levels of the korkotili product towards Coinmotion, who have marketed the product to their end users.
Tesseract has not faced any credit incidents in our other digital asset products, being lower risk lending products tailored to some of our other partners as well as asset management and staking products.
Q: Coinmotion states, that end-borrowers have not been accepted by Coinmotion
A: Coinmotion is both lying, and referring to an extremely outdated list of borrowers, dated in February 2019, which has been updated several times since. Coinmotion have been fully aware of the changes to the list of end-borrowers, which had been multiple times been changed and confirmed in negotiations held between Tesseract and Coinmotion.
Q: Will the consumers be somehow compensated for the losses?
A: First, none of the credit losses have been realized at this point and it is very unclear how much of the loans will be paid back and when.
Tesseract is working together with Coinmotion to seek for the best possible outcome to ensure that as much of the assets are recovered as possible and returned to the end-users.
Q: Have the FIN-FSA approached you regarding the matter?
Yes, according to our understanding FIN-FSA have been in contact with all crypto market participants in Finland as a result of the recent market events, including us. We maintain an open and transparent dialogue with the FIN-FSA on this matter.
