Compute North did not pay several executives about $3 million on Sept. 22, the same day it filed for bankruptcy. CoinDesk has retracted a story published Nov. 4 that, based on a mistaken reading of a court filing, said otherwise.

The filing states that these payments were made in the year leading up to Sept. 22.
