A class action suit against EthereumMax and its promoters has included celebrities Kim Kardashian, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Paul Pierce as defendants. Plaintiff Ryan Huegrich brought the suit on behalf of all investors who purchased EthereumMax between May to June, 2021. Huegrich claims EthereumMax obscured the token percentage available to the public between May 14 and June 17, 2021, in order to pump the token price.

β€œIn plain terms, EthereumMax’s entire business model relies on using constant marketing and promotional activities, often from β€œtrusted” celebrities, to dupe potential investors into trusting the financial opportunities available with EMAX Tokens,” reported in the class action complaint.
