Mt. Gox Verifies Creditors Accounts for Repayment

Mt. Gox is taking steps to make repayments to creditors and investors who took a massive loss after the major hack. The now-defunct exchange has reportedly been in touch with creditors to confirm their identities and clarify their account’s existence at the time of the attack.

Emails to many Mt. Gox creditors were sent, asking them to verify their identity linked to the account to repay the Bitcoin ($BTC) and Bitcoin Cash ($BCH) they lost.

A recount of the email was posted on Mt. Gox’s insolvency subreddit early this week. The message notes that the user has confirmed ownership of the account and completion of the identity verification from the exchange’s Trustee. The email also states that the user will receive their repayment in Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash:

Please note that you may not be able to receive repayment in BTC/BCH if your account is disabled or frozen in the future.”

Since then, the exchange’s CEO, Mark Karpeles, was slapped with several criminal charges in Japan for embezzlement and falsifying financial records.
