In an effort to reach the widest group of investors, Nano had encouraged their investors to open accounts with an Italian cryptocurrency exchange called BitGrail, according to the complaint. In February 2018, $170 million of investors' XRB allegedly "disappeared."

The lawsuit asks the Court to "rescind the plaintiff class' investments in XRB and require Nano to 'rescue fork' the allegedly missing XRB into a new cryptocurrency in a manner that would fairly compensate the class of victims."
