A report on Crypto news site, The Block, published on Friday claims the Thailand-based payments and blockchain startup Omise has been acquired for US$150 million by CP Group. Shortly, Hasegawa Jun, the founder of Omise denied the news and clarified on Twitter.

Omise also took to Twitter to refute the claims made in the article.

According to the report, several inside sources confirmed the deal, which will allegedly bring Omise, one of the largest payment gateways in Thailand with a presence across Singapore, Japan, and Indonesia, under the ownership of the Chearavanont family, one of Asia’s wealthiest family. The Chearavanont family owns the CP group, with a net worth of $36.6 billion by Forbes Asia.
