DJ Mt. Gox Files for Bankruptcy Protection





By Eleanor Warnock and Takashi Mochizuki
     TOKYO--A lawyer for Mt. Gox announced at a news conference at the Tokyo
District Court that the embattled bitcoin exchange was filing for bankruptcy
protection and that Mt. Gox had outstanding debt of about Yen6.5 billion ($63.6
million).
     The exchange has been under fire from investors since it stopped bitcoin
withdrawals in early February, citing a technical issue that potentially made
fraudulent withdrawals possible.
     On Tuesday, Mt. Gox, which at one point handled more than 80% of trades in
the virtual currency, stopped all transactions, dealing the severest blow to
the bitcoin industry yet and raised concerns about a lack of protection for
users. Several Mt. Gox investors say they have little hope of recovering their
funds, with some individual investors saying they had bitcoins valued at
hundreds of thousands of dollars in Mt. Gox.

We might have to clarify what "outstanding debt" actually means, and if it translates over to "total liabilities" or a more accurate description of the discrepancy on customer holdings there.

If true, this is drastically lower than expected, which almost makes me think the 750k BTC number was orchestrated to be ridiculously high.  /tinfoil hat

Remember the crisis document said 50% of the bailout funds needed had been acquired... Perhaps that's what this means?

The company's lawyers added that Mt.Gox may have lost nearly of its virtual currency, leading to a black hole of 2.8 billion Japanese yen, local media reported.


The company said there were 127,000 creditors in the bankruptcy and only 0.8 percent were Japanese. Representatives added that it opted for a transparent procedure due to public outcry and will aid authorities in finding out what happened. It's liquid liabilities totaled 6.501 billion Japanese yen with its total assets being 3.842 billion Japanese yen, according to Reuters. Dow Jones added that Mt.Gox believed 750,000 of customers' coins may have been lost and 100,000 of its own, meaning a loss of around $500 million at current market prices.

I want to know where every single one of those missing 750k Bitcoin have gone to.

MtGox should publish full details of all their compromised cold storage wallet addresses so we can see what happened.

Right now for all I know Mark simply decided to keep all the coins for himself - he needs to prove he didn't do this.
