A Canadian court issued a Mareva Injunction against Nunchuk, among other intermediaries and individuals, ordering the company to disclose user information and freeze any assets related to the Freedom Convoy 2022 protests.
This is the first time the injunction has been applied to cryptocurrency.
On February 19th, the company tweeted that it had rejected the court’s order because it was unable to comply with it because the only user data it stores is email addresses.
“We do not hold any keys. Therefore, we cannot freeze our users’ assets. We cannot prevent them from being moved. We do not have knowledge of the existence, nature, value and location of our users’ assets. This is by design.”
