I was listening to the interview with Sergey Mavrodi, a Russian entrepreneur, or criminal, depends on who you ask.
He created one of his money schemes in 1998, it was a virtual stock market game called “Stock Generation”. It was registered offshore, somewhere in the Caribbean, with a proper gaming licence.
There were tens of millions of users, but only 3 users disliked something and complained. That triggered a court case in Boston, which Mavrodi won, but then lost at the appeal stage of the case. He was accused of fraud.
