“Gagacki has suffered damages in an amount to be determined at trial, but not less than $77,000,000 USD, which reflects the amount defendant misappropriated from the joint digital wallet, the value of the Rebase app, the value, and the proceeds arising from the Arbitrum Deal, plus accrued interest, costs and attorneys’ fees to the extent permitted by contract or law.”
