With a slew of condemning evidence raised in the report, the analysts revealed that a hotel room is listed as SOS’s headquarters in their SEC filings. Even more incriminating is the allegation that the published photos of SOS’s mining rigs were doctored. In fact, the miners in the photos weren’t even the A10 Pros the company had claimed to possess. Rather, these pictures were of Avalon’s A1066 miners. The final nail in this particular coffin came when Hindenburg Research exposed images from SOS’s website to have been taken from a legitimate rival, RHY.
