Roger Hamilton Shares His Story with Retail
$GNS CEO Roger Hamilton walked us through how he was able to identify naked short selling in Genius Group and shares his thoughts on why he thinks they were targeted.
“I don’t think we’re special, I personally think there’s thousands and thousands of companies out there and everyone that I’ve spoken to says the number of companies that have gone bankrupt over the last 20 years because of this is in the thousands.
We just happen to be one of the companies recently that has gone more vocal about it. At the time when Patrick Byrne was getting vocal there weren’t enough people brave enough to stand up at that point or even be aware this stuff was happening.
So, it was easy for basically the media campaign against him to say he was just a crazy guy. It’s much more difficult when you got dozens of CEOs all saying together to say they’re all crazy”, said Roger Hamilton in a space call with retail investors.
Roger Hamilton listed Genius Group as a means to provide its employees with the opportunity and right to own a part of the company they work for.
