R3 Appears to Alter Tweet While Accusing Media Of Libel Over Blockchain Identity
R3 CEV appears to have altered its own publicity materials away from Blockchain at the same time as accusing media outlets of libel.
Following criticism of R3 CEV dropping Blockchain technology from its agenda, it appears the startup is altering publicity to suit its new “Blockchain-inspired” status.
A comparison uploaded by commentator Saifedean Ammous shows R3 edited its description of itself from using “Blockchain technology” to using “Blockchain-inspired technology.”
At the same time, the startup’s public relations agency appears to be threatening press outlets with libel action after articles surfaced about R3’s initial Blockchain blunder.
Among those the agency contacted was Cointelegraph contributor Joseph Young, who wrote about the story on The Merkle.
