Mt. Gox Creditor Opts for Early Bitcoin Payout
Mt. Gox Investment Fund, the largest creditor of the defunct crypto exchange, has chosen to take its chances with an early payout in Bitcoin (BTC) rather than waiting for a larger payment later on. This means that the creditor will be paid by September 2021, instead of potentially waiting another nine years before getting their funds back.
According to Bloomberg, the creditor has opted for the earlier payout, which means that they will receive 90% of what’s due to them. The bankruptcy trustee won’t have to sell tokens to acquire fiat funds for the payment since the creditor also chose to be paid in BTC. This will ease market concerns, as token sales of that magnitude could potentially have a negative impact on the crypto market.
Other creditors of the exchange have until March 10 to decide whether they want to wait for a larger payment percentage or take the earlier repayment in September. On Jan. 6, Mt. Gox trustee Nobuaki Kobayashi urged creditors to complete the necessary steps before the deadline. Those who fail to do so will not be able to receive their funds or will have to bring documents to the head office in Japan and receive payments in Japanese yen.
Mt. Gox used to be considered the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world before it went bankrupt in 2014 after 750,000 of its customer’s BTC and 100,000 of its own Bitcoin were stolen. At the time of the incident, the funds were only worth around $473 million. However, at current market prices, it’s worth around $20 billion.
The incident has sparked a debate in the crypto space about the importance of NFTs and crypto security. With the rise of NFTs and the increased use of crypto assets, the need for secure and trustworthy crypto exchanges has become even more important.
This is why many crypto projects and businesses are now focusing on NFT marketing and promotion to ensure that their projects and tokens are properly promoted and secure. NFT promotion and marketing agencies are now offering their services to help crypto projects and businesses to promote their tokens on social media platforms such as Twitter, and to ensure that their tokens are secure.
These NFT marketing agencies are also helping businesses to sell their NFTs and to reach a wider audience. With the help of these agencies, businesses can now easily promote their NFTs and reach more potential buyers.
