Mt. Gox bitcoin exchange news

One of the world’s first bitcoin exchanges, Mt. Gox eventually built up a huge customer base – with around 80% of global trading volume at its peak. In February 2014, however, all trading was closed after technical issues resulted in an alleged loss of 850,000 bitcoins, leaving the troubled exchange insolvent and many customers out of pocket. The saga is ongoing, with the legal wrangling over its bankruptcy and potential revival plans often hitting the headlines, so check this page for the latest news updates on the case.
