MtGox set to distribute $500 million in assets to creditors by October 2024

MtGox is on the way to deliver 142,000 Bitcoin (BTC) and 143,000 Bitcoin Cash (BCH), along with 69 billion yen, to creditors by October 31, 2024. 

For some time now, the company has put investors in an absolute quandary regarding its actual status. The company was officially established in 2010 and has witnessed exponential growth in its role as a crypto exchange. 

The downfall began in 2014, following a tremendous lapse in safety matters, causing a loss of 850,000 Bitcoins. This broke the back of the platform, creating a ripple effect throughout the cryptocurrency space, the impact felt most by the investors. 

Moving forward to September 2023, the trustee controlling whatever is left of the company came out with an official declaration that the creditors will be receiving all of their dues soon enough, with payments being made in the form of either cryptocurrency or fiat. 

The payment structure will involve Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and an added 69 million yen, estimated to be roughly $500 million. 

However, there is a shroud over the exact nature and status of the payments as the claims about fiat currency read as already done. 

There is yet another side to the story as a whole lot of creditors are claiming that the payments being received by them are seemingly all above board and coming with transparency. As per the updates, the exercise was initiated on March 05, carried on till the April 08, followed by April 08, 2024, in sync with the processing of BTC transactions.
