Mt. Gox, the defunct and unrighteous Bitcoin (BTC) exchange, at one time the largest in the world, is currently working on a final episode in a very long ordeal. Its creditors have joined forces on a reimbursement scheme to ensure that the victims’ losses are entirely covered. The plan includes what might total $1.3 billion in cash refunded in Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin (BTC) by the end of the summer of 2019.

The civil rehabilitation programme, a legal operation without going into formal bankruptcy under the Japanese regime, was revised recently in connection with Mt. Gox and the victims’ losses coverage. In a newly released notice, creditors reviewed the policies to better mirror the feedback from the earlier iteration.
The revision covers how the official reimbursement to the victims will be carried out in Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin (BTC) via the current accounts in several cryptocurrency exchanges or through the newly pre-approved accounts that have been opened.
“We think it is desirable that the BTC and BCH be sent to exchanges where many creditors have accounts or can easily open them,” the creditors explained.

The new declaration outlines how 168,000 Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and 160,000 Bitcoin (BTC), coupled with Gox’s “derivatives,” will be repaid by the trustee in the summer of next year, on the assumption that the rehabilitation will be officially passed, which appears probable.
The general settlement plan itself looks set to be overdue, so it is expected to be presented by mid-February next year. The payments, depending on the price, would, of course, be more than $1 billion, or $1.3 billion at the time of writing.
Mt. Gox, at one time, represented the most popular Bitcoin (BTC) exchange in the world, accounting for a significant proportion of BTC trading volume. Ultimately it collapsed after the 744,000 Bitcoin (BTC) theft.
