10  Economy / Service Discussion / [MTGOX UPDATE] Regarding the applicability of US Bankruptcy Code Chapter 15 on: March 14, 2014, 07:41:35 AM Post's New Update on website.

Announcement regarding the applicability of US Bankruptcy Code Chapter 15

Announcement regarding the applicability of US Bankruptcy Code Chapter 15

As already announced, MtGox Co., Ltd. filed an application for commencement of a civil
rehabilitation procedure at the Tokyo District Court on February 28, 2014 and this application is
now proceeding (the "Civil Rehabilitation").

On March 10, 2014 (US Standard Central Time), a petition was filed in the United States
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division to have the Civil Rehabilitation accepted under Chapter 15 of title 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. A
temporary relief order was issued on the same date. This preliminary relief order is scheduled
for confirmation on April 1, 2014.

This means that the effect of the Civil Rehabilitation applies now on a temporary basis to
assets located in the United States which will be preserved. Accordingly, the acceptance by the
US court of the Civil Rehabilitation means that any enforcement of a judgment against MtGox
Co., Ltd, any attachment of its assets, the creation of any lien against its assets or the disposition
of any assets located in the United States are temporarily no longer possible.

Under the Civil Rehabilitation, the Tokyo District Court issued an order prohibiting any
disposition of the assets of MtGox Co., Ltd. Since assets located in the United States will be
used to repay all creditors, their preservation was necessary to ensure the smooth functioning of
the Civil Rehabilitation. This is why the Chapter 15 petition was made.

Further, on March 11, 2014 (United States Standard Central Time), a petition was made to
stop the proceedings of a lawsuit taking place in the United States pursuant to Chapter 15 and
this petition was accepted.

Further announcements regarding the Civil Rehabilitation will be made on this website.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused to all creditors and ask for their understanding
and cooperation throughout this process.
11  Economy / Service Discussion / U.S. judge freezes assets of Mt. Gox bitcoin exchange boss on: March 11, 2014, 10:47:43 PM

(Reuters) - A U.S. federal judge on Tuesday temporarily froze the U.S. assets of Mt. Gox chief Mark Karpeles and allowed alleged victims of the shuttered bitcoin exchange to demand evidence of what they claim is a massive fraud.

The market for the digital currency was rocked last month when Mt. Gox, once the world's largest bitcoin exchange, ceased operations, and soon after filed for bankruptcy. Mt. Gox said it may have lost 750,000 bitcoins, worth hundreds of millions of dollars, in a hacking attack.

The freeze on Karpeles' assets, issued by Judge Gary Feinerman in Chicago, also applies to Mt. Gox's U.S. affiliate and the Japanese parent company, Tibanne, according to Christopher Dore, an Edelson attorney who represents U.S. customers of the bitcoin exchange.

The judge's order did not apply to the Tokyo-based Mt. Gox KK, which was shielded from litigation after it filed for bankruptcy protection in Japan and the United States.

Mt. Gox suspended withdrawals on February 7, leaving customers unable to recover their funds.

In a bankruptcy hearing on Monday, parties suing Mt. Gox said there are growing concerns that Karpeles moved millions of dollars of bitcoins in recent days based on information gleaned from the Internet.

Dore represents Gregory Greene, an Illinois resident, who brought a proposed class action over what he claims is a massive fraud. Mt. Gox blamed the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars in bitcoins on a flaw in the software algorithm that underlies the digital currency.

"The main thing we hope to achieve is to finally see what the web of things that Karpeles has put together over the last few years and to start unwinding it as to where things are and what happened," said Dore.

Bitcoin is bought and sold on a peer-to-peer network independent of central control. Its value soared last year, and the total worth of bitcoins minted is now about $7 billion.

Investors were warned on Tuesday that the lure of a quick profit trading the volatile currency should not blind them to bitcoin's risk of theft, fraud and significant losses, according to an alert by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.

Dore said the judge's order freezing Karpeles' assets will expire in 14 days, when the parties return to court to decide if it should be extended.

John Murphy, a Baker McKenzie attorney for Mt. Gox KK, the bankrupt company, declined to comment. Dore said the U.S. affiliate, Karpeles and Tibanne were not represented at the hearing.

The case is Gregory Greene v Mt. Gox Inc et al, U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois, No. 14-01437

12  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Mt. Gox files for Chapter 15 in U.S. on: March 10, 2014, 03:40:06 PM

Troubled Japan-based bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox has filed for Chapter 15 bankruptcy protection, an ancillary form of bankruptcy that will complement its primary Tokyo District Court claim issued on 28th February.

US Chapter 15 bankruptcy provides specific protections in cases of cross-border insolvency, and is based on UN model law. Both Japan and the US have adopted Chapter 15 bankruptcy in an effort to better protect the interests of shareholders and maximize the value of debtor assets in cross-border bankruptcies.

At the time of its filing, Mt. Gox claimed an outstanding debt of ¥6.5bn ($63.6m), and indicated that 850,000 bitcoins had been lost or stolen from its exchange.

This is just the latest development in the ongoing legal case against Mt. Gox. Shortly after its original Japan filing, a US class action suit was mounted by Colorado-based Edelson law firm, which specializes in technology cases. The lawsuit is seeking damages, alleging that Mt. Gox was negligent for failing to provide adequate security to its customers.

Edelson did not respond to comments requesting more information on how this filing could affect its case.

What is Chapter 15 bankruptcy?

Upon qualifying for Chapter 15 protection in the US, certain relief could become available to Mt. Gox, including the granting of an “automatic stay” that would prevent creditors from seizing its US assets, though Mt. Gox would have to request such an arrangement in writing. The presiding bankruptcy judge would have the final say on granting the relief.

For more information on Chapter 15 bankruptcy filings, read a full overview here.

Next steps

Following the filing, a recognition hearing will typically be held within 30 days to determine whether the case is a “foreign main” or “foreign non-main” proceeding, distinctions that would affect the handling of the case. Mt. Gox may not necessarily have protection in the interim period before the hearing.

After the determination is made at the hearing, Mt. Gox would be able to carry out its main purpose in filing, which can include liquidating assets, approving its sale or assigning its leases in the US.

Mt. Gox indicated recently in a post on its website that it planned to restructure and restore the business in order to increase repayments to its creditors.

Chapter 15, Title 11, United States Code is a section of the United States bankruptcy code that deals with jurisdiction. Under Chapter 15 a representative of a corporate bankruptcy (insolvency) proceeding outside the U.S. can obtain access to the United States courts. It allows cooperation between the United States courts and the foreign courts, as well as other authorities of foreign countries involved in cross-border insolvency cases.

It happens with increasing frequency that a bankruptcy proceeding in one country has a connection to assets or information located in another. Because of the involvement of multiple jurisdictions, unique problems arise. In order to solve some of these problems, the United States enacted Section 304 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in 1978. Section 304 was repealed in 2005 and replaced with Chapter 15, titled "Ancillary and Other Cross Border Cases." This section has increased the range of options available in the United States in support of foreign bankruptcy proceedings.

Chapter 15 incorporates the Model Law on Cross Border Insolvency drafted by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law. The law provides solutions to problems which arise in connection with cross-border bankruptcy, allowing US courts to issue subpoenas, orders to turn over assets, the issuance of stays on pending actions, and orders of other types as circumstances dictate. The ancillary proceeding permitted under Chapter 15 is often a more efficient and less costly alternative to initiating an independent bankruptcy proceeding in the United States. It also avoids the conflicts which could arise between the jurisdictions involved in two independent bankruptcy proceedings initiated in connection with the same debtor.
Chapter 15 also establishes mechanisms for the cooperation between US and foreign courts and representatives regarding proceedings which involve the same debtor.
Discretionary assistance[edit]

Whether the US courts will extend the "additional assistance" sought in connection with a foreign proceeding under Chapter 15 is a matter of discretion.
The main consideration the US courts will take into account in making this decision is whether the laws of the foreign jurisdiction in connection with which the additional assistance is sought violate the laws or public policy of the United States and if the foreign courts conduct their proceedings according to basic rules of procedural fairness.
Among other factors the US courts will consider how the foreign jurisdiction treats creditors, whether it prevents the fraudulent transfer of debtor's property, if US creditors are protected against prejudice in the processing of their claims there, and the manner in which assets are distributed.
The court may conduct an evidentiary hearing, including the hearing of expert testimony, to determine whether the proceedings of the foreign forum are sufficiently just to grant the assistance requested.
Original Chapter 15 (1978-1984)[edit]

The original 1978 Bankruptcy Code had a different Chapter 15 dealing with the United States Trustee Program, which it established as a trial in some judicial districts to assume roles which formerly belonged to the bankruptcy judge and others, including the selection and oversight of private trustees in individual cases. At that time, the other chapters of the Bankruptcy Code described how bankruptcy worked in districts without United States Trustees; original Chapter 15 modified the text of the other chapters for districts with United States Trustees. Section numbers in original Chapter 15 incorporated the section numbers in the main Code that they modified; for example, section 151325 (a section of original Chapter 15) modified section 1325, which sets the requirements of Chapter 13 plans.
Since the trial program was considered a success, Congress in 1984 ordered the creation of United States Trustees in all states except Alabama and North Carolina. Since original Chapter 15 now applied in most states, its text was then merged into the main Bankruptcy Code; separate provisions were enacted for Alabama and North Carolina, where other officers of the court assume the role of the United States Trustee.
