Last night Coindesk reported a text from the CEO of Kik Ted Livingstone to an unnamed person. That text was a fake. We reported on the Coindesk story and believed it had been confirmed, however, Coindesk subsequently retracted its story. We do the same and apologize to our readers.

More importantly, we apologize to Mr Ted Livingstone, the CEO of Kik who was the subject of the hoax.
