BITCOIN has made many early investors cryptocurrency millionaires over the last few years, but if you were caught up in the MTGOX debacle, read on…

The following news is relevant mostly for early adopters who invested through one of the biggest bitcoin exchanges MTGOX.

MTGOX the Japan based exchange handled over 70% of all bitcoin transactions in 2014. 

However, on 28th February 2014 the exchange filed for bankruptcy as some 750,000 of customers bitcoin went missing.

Since then a lengthy lawsuit has begun, as creditors have been seeking a percentage return on their lost bitcoin holdings.

The Tokyo District court appointed Nobuaki Kobayashi as the trustee of the now defunct exchange.

Kobayashi has located around 200,000 bitcoins.

Over the last 5 years despite numerous creditors meetings any potential payback dates have continually been pushed forward and creditors have been losing patience.

Fortress, a San Francisco based investment group have recently sent private letters to offer creditors a price to take over their claim of $900 per bitcoin claim roughly 200% of the value at time of bankruptcy ($451 per BTC).
