Lawyers representing to a group of creditors of the now-defunct Japanese Bitcoin (BTC) exchange Mt. Gox has as of late updated their civil rehabilitation plan, as indicated by an announcement on the Mt. Gox creditors’ site Aug. 1. The update affirmed that repayment will be made in Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash (BCH), including that creditors will be paid back to their current accounts on crypto exchanges or on recently opened accounts as best by the creditors. The declaration included
“This is because making payments to BTC creditors in BTC and BCH is the most simple and efficient way, minimizing transaction costs such as bank fees (this is the very advantage of BTC). Also, if payment is to be made in cash, it will be necessary to exchange a large amount of BTC and BCH for fiat currency, which may result in the decline of the price of BTC, etc. Further, as the price of BTC and BCH fluctuates rapidly, it is difficult to determine when to sell BTC and BCH.”

With regard to altcoins, the new policy stated as quoted below,

“with regard to altcoins (cryptocurrency except for BTC and BCH), the number of exchanges which deal with altcoin is limited. It is unrealistic to repay BTC creditors in altcoin and therefore altcoin should be exchanged for cash and paid to creditors. However, there are no exchanges which deal with all types of altcoins, there is a possibility that the sale of the altcoins by the trustee would cause a sudden fall in the price of altcoins and security problems may arise if the trustee moves the altcoins. Therefore, the trustee should proceed with the sale of altcoins with careful consideration of these matters.”

The revised policy further states that all assets currently held by Mt. Gox, including 166,000 BTC and 168,000 BCH, be paid to creditors immediately following the procedure’s approval.
