Now-defunct and disgraced bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox posted an update to their website on Friday with regard to the ongoing investigation that’s taking place to find out just what’s been going on.
Here’s the contents of the announcement:
To anyone concerned
March 28, 2014
MtGox Co., Ltd.
11-5, Shibuya 2-chome, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo
ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING THE EXTENSION OF THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF THE EXAMINATION RESULTS REPORT
In relation with the application for commencement of a civil rehabilitation proceeding made by MtGox Co., Ltd., the Tokyo District Court issued on February 28, 2014 an examination order and appointed attorney-at-law Nobuaki Kobayashi as examiner.
We hereby announce that the Tokyo District Court issued today an order extending to May 9, 2014 the deadline for the examiner to submit the results of its examination.
For most customers of the exchange, they just want to know where their money is and whether or not they’ll ever get it back. But at this rate, it looks like it will be a while before anyone gets any real answers.
On Thursday, a study became available that suggested Mt. Gox possibly lost under 400 BTC due to the transaction malleability flaw they claim to have been the cause of a massive loss of 700,000 + BTC.
Before that, the company found about 200,000 BTC out of the blue from what they describe to be an “old wallet”.
