$2 Billion Lost in Mt. Gox Bitcoin Hack Can Be Recovered, Lawyer Claims
A Russian law firm says it can help Mt Gox creditors recover up to $2 billion worth of bitcoins stolen in the 2014 hack.
Fortress is now offering creditors a "premium price tier" of $1,300 on every bitcoin held by the defunct exchange's estate.
Creditors have until Dec. 31 to accept the offer, which is lower than one made previously.
Mark Karpeles said he is reviewing the verdict with his legal team.
The trustee recovering funds on behalf of Mt Gox's creditors has contacted the U.S. Department of Justice seeking information about Alexander Vinnik.
Some Mt. Gox creditors have signed on to a law firm’s unorthodox proposal to recover their bitcoin, but many are skeptical about its motives.
