Nano Under Demand Again: Fork To Pay

The developers of the nano cryptocurrency are under pressure yet again. Despite the last hack of Nano being still under investigation, a new demand has been established in the US by an American individual named Alex Brola through Steven Miller Law Firm, according to a report by AmbCrypto. The Nano team is being asked by the plaintiffs to hard fork to a new coin for paying the damages that occurred in the Nano incident.
The affected party bought $50,000 worth of Nano before the alleged hack, but that event is not clear yet. But the plaintiff is assuming that the blame falls on the Nano development team. Also, they are suing the team for selling “unregistered” securities, but that also is a polemic claim, because at the time the incident occurred the SEC (Securities and Exchange Committee), the US financial watchdog, had not made any claims whatsoever about the consideration of securities of some cryptocurrencies.
The curious thing about this demand s the kind of reimbursement that it details. If the procedure fails in favor of the plaintiff, the defendant asks for a total hard fork of nano to pay him (and the others affected) the total amount that he lost. This has not happened before, and should raise controversy: can the government command you to hard fork a cryptocurrency? What about the operational costs of executing this hard fork? Would this be included in the demanded amount?
The other issue with this demand is a simple one. There is no clarification of who is responsible for this incident yet, and there has been a lot of finger-pointing. Some, as the demandant, claim that the responsibility falls on the Nano team, because they did not address their vulnerabilities accordingly. But others say that the blame falls on the Italian Bitgrail exchange and that this was an exit scam well executed. The fact is that more than 170 million dollars were missed in the Bitgrail exchange, and no one has been reimbursed till the date; so people are finding ways to regain their lost tokens via judiciary action.
