Nilam Resources CEO Resigns Amid Bitcoin Acquisition Controversy

March 27, 2024

Amid the backdrop of Nilam Resources’ recent announcement regarding the acquisition of 24,800 Bitcoin, the company’s CEO, Ron McIntyre, has tendered his resignation. McIntyre’s departure follows his assertion that he was not apprised of the transaction details or the announcement before its public disclosure.

Describing the circumstances surrounding his resignation as indicative of a “typical pump and dump,” McIntyre’s comments coincided with a notable surge in Nilam Resources’ stock price, prompting concerns of potential market manipulation.

In a press release Tuesday, Nilam Resources unveiled its plans to acquire a substantial amount of Bitcoins through a partnership with Mauritius-based company Xyberdata.

The acquisition was intended to be facilitated through a special purpose entity named MindWave. However, the press release lacked clarity on the specifics of the transaction, raising concerns among investors and industry observers.

The sheer scale of the Bitcoin acquisition, coupled with Nilam Resources’ status as a penny stock with a market capitalization of under $1 million, raised eyebrows in the financial community. Questions were raised about the feasibility of such a significant investment for a company of its size.

Ron McIntyre’s resignation added fuel to the fire, as he expressed frustration over the lack of transparency surrounding the deal.

In a conversation with Protos, McIntyre revealed that he had resigned as CEO and requested the removal of his name from all corporate documents. But it was not immediately clear when he had resigned as Protos also said in the same report that McIntyre had been removed within the past week.

He also confirmed his resignation from other roles within the Nevada entity. The Shib has reached out to Nilam Resources for comment on McIntyre’s resignation and its timing. This article will be updated when a response is received.

McIntyre’s allegations of inadequate communication and unilateral decision-making regarding the acquisition announcement have sparked concerns about potential regulatory scrutiny.

He hinted at a possible investigation by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) into Nilam Resources’ activities. “There will be a FINRA investigation into Nilam Resources.”

The controversy surrounding Nilam Resources’ Bitcoin acquisition has attracted attention from industry experts. Matthew Siegel, head of Digital Asset Research at Van Eck, questioned the legitimacy of the deal on social media.

“$1 Million market cap penny stock Nilam Resources (NILM) announces letter of intent to buy 24,800 Bitcoin ($1.7B) “at a discounted rate relative to current market prices” via an acquisition of a special purpose entity under the name MindWave,” Siegel said.
