After reporting on the accusations about the exit scam and death threats, the story takes a new turn as an ex team member makes fork announcements on Twitter after days of silence.

The lead dev 'Dev007' recently accused @kingofhexxstreet (JJ) of stealing the Hexx development funds, and threatened to kill him and people around him. Now, after days of silence, JJ speaks out against Dev007, saying that the dev was planning an exit and stealing coins from the community dev fund. Because the lead developer was 100% anonymous, all of Hexx' belongings were under JJ's control, positioned in the Hexx legal team.

I called him out on this, he threatened my life and that of other team members that knew what was going on. We will be setting up a website “with screen shots” of everything Dev007. His plan of exit scams and no plan of the fork or hexxchange. This will also be verified by other core team members. This has been a lot to take in with death threats and working with the authorities. [..] I ask you all to please understand that this fork is for the best of the community. I have been in touch with Crytopia regarding Dev007, Shiki & the rest of the Hexxteam They have advised that a halt (stop) of all Hexx trading happens during the investigation process of Dev007 and the entire Hexx team.

In a YouTube livestream, team member shiki0 has doubts about JJ's ability to take over the coin. He says that he has contacted Cryptopia to straighten things out and exchange listings are still going through. He claims JJ was working on a legal entity to be able to apply to the top exchanges, and that JJ was sent 15,000 HXX to proceed with these listings. shiki0 emphasizes he is dedicated to Hexx and has pledged not to sell his coins, to prove this he provided his public addresses.

Earlier, another team member (IndominusHexxx) who had been accused of stealing as well, claimed that Dev007 was the only person who had access to the team funds. An emotional Telegram message showed being a team member can be enjoyable, but sometimes not for the faint of heart.

I am mentally exhausted/spent. I have done the most I could to clear my name and reputation in all of this. I have spent the last few days trying to answer everyones personal questions via DM's. I don't care what anyone says, I was Hexx all the way, and I don't think anyone can argue with me on that. I am sad, depressed, and downright can't handle any more death threats from anyone. I am truly sorry that it had to come to this. At this point in time, I don't know if the Crypto Space is for me anymore. I need some time to think and figure out where I go from here. The death threats have really fucked with my mind, and I don't know how to handle them at this very moment. I truly wish you all the best and hope everyone can move on, and find happiness. For those who have stuck by my side through all of this, I truly would like to say thank you.
