Yesterday, some people who lost bitcoin when the infamous exchange Mt. Gox shuttered in 2014 say they received an interesting email. Sent via an address from the Japanese law firm working on Mt. Gox’s bankruptcy case, the email indicates that receivers may finally be getting some of their lost bitcoin back.
For those who weren’t tuned in during bitcoin’s earlier days, Mt. Gox was a major bitcoin exchange purchased by Mark Karpelès in 2011. Long story short, the exchange closed in February 2014, filed for bankruptcy, and reported that it had been hacked, losing 850,000 bitcoin (some of which were eventually recovered).
