ASKfm, a cryptographic money organization revolving around a worldwide long range informal communication site where clients can make profiles and send different inquiries. ASKfm supporters asked four crypto enthusiasts to climb the highest point of Mount Everest. As a limited time stunt for ASKfm’s underlying coin offering which is also known as initial coin offer [ICO], the climbers set a wallet of ASKfm tokens at the summit of the world’s most elevated mountain.
Climbers, themselves completely inconsequential to ASKfm, additionally participated in the endeavor. Every climber was helped by a Nepalese local [Sherpa] who was prepared and acclimated with escorting climbers on their excursion to the best.
The climb did not go as easily as all had trusted, bringing about Sherpa Lam Babu’s vanishing. Lam Babu is currently assumed dead after an inquiry.
ASKfm has issued official articulations on both May 26 and May 29, in which the organization gave the most recent subtle elements and kept up straightforwardness on this delicate subject.
All things considered, different news media outlets have hopped on the chance to put the blame on ASKfm and their publicity stunt that costed a life, the cryptographic money industry, in general, is known for its controversy.
Subsequent to achieving the pinnacle of Mt. Everest with three contracted Sherpa controls, the ASKfm group was compelled to quickly slide because of decaying climate conditions. At the time, the Sherpa guides lingered behind.
Unaccompanied by Sherpas, the group went over with another climber named Saber Liu, who was in basic condition — lacking eye security, a working oxygen tank, and missing one glove.
The team assisted Liu and returned him safely to Camp Four, after which Liu wrote the following letter to team member Roman Gorodechnyi:
“I went down alone because I tried to ask help from another Sherpa ahead of me to help my Sherpa who was running out off energy and losing capability to support me, but I fell down at least 50 meters before stopping myself. I had to continue down myself without oxygen. Here I will say thank you again for your help, without your support I would’ve been left there forever.”
The promotional stunt actually costed someone’s life! ASKfm as of now has not commented on the accident or rather has decided to keep quiet as the promotional stunt failed.
