George Popescu Steps Down From Lampix

| By:

George Popescu is stepping down from Lampix, the augmented reality lamp company he founded, according to an announcement. Lampix raised $14.2 million through its sale of PIX tokens in a 2017 Initial Coin Offering (ICO). PIX sold at a price of 12 cents each but the value has since plummeted by more than 95%.

Popescu will be replaced by Salvatore Buccellato, who has been the Chief Revenue Officer since the summer of 2018.

“As outgoing CEO I am really proud to have taken Lampix from an idea/prototype to the successful manufacturing of the Lampix commercial development kits,” Popescu said in a published statement. “I strongly believe that it is good practice for companies to regularly have new CEOs who bring new ideas, new resources and a fresh outside vision to the company. During and after the full transition I will of course remain involved with the company as needed.”

Lampix was profiled in deBanked’s November/December magazine issue as a poster child for the murky world of crypto fundraising. At the time, Popescu was involved in several other ICOs in addition to Lampix. Among them was Restart Energy (which raised $30 million), Opiria, First Blood, AirFox (which later settled charges with the SEC for selling unregistered “securities”), and DropDeck Technologies, whose user funds were lost due to a software bug that also affected numerous other companies. Popescu was also advisory board chairman to Gatecoin, a Hong Kong-based crypto exchange which closed on March 20, 2019 following a 2016 hack.
