The creators of an embattled cybercurrency technology project called Tezos expressed regret on Tuesday about their ongoing dispute with the head of a Swiss foundation that controls the $232 million they raised in one of the largest “initial coin offerings” ever.

In their first public appearance since Reuters detailed the controversy in a report last week, Arthur and Kathleen Breitman described their feud with Tezos Foundation President Johann Gevers over control of the project as unfortunate.

“I mean, it stinks – it stinks,” Kathleen Breitman said while sitting next to her husband on a panel at the Money20/20 technology conference in Las Vegas.

“Like, we’re both really embarrassed about the situation, but we trust the process that we put in place and I think it will be resolved in due course.”

The Breitmans helped establish the Zug-based Tezos Foundation to handle their coin offering and develop a new transaction system that the money would be put toward.
