The "well-known" cryptocurrency exchange BTC-e published new official announced. 

This is re-made plan of refund to the BTC-e customers, which lose their funds due to platform shutdown by the US law enforcement agencies. 

As noted in the message from the forum, the administration of BTC-e, having reviewed the feedback on its previous proposal, decided to reconsider the decision in favor of the opinions of the community.

In the opinion of BTC-e, the new plan will be more fair for holders of crypto-currency and fiat funds (translated from Russian) : 

For each currency, a recalculation will be made taking into account the currently available assets. Currently 55% of funds are available, so 55% will remain in currency, and 45% will be converted to a specific currency token.
 

For tokens of all currencies, free trading on a separate page will be opened. You can trade them at any price, but no more than their face value. We pledge to redeem all the tokens. You can also sell your tokens to other users and get currency, or wait and exchange tokens at face value.
 

For example, you had 1 BTC. You will receive 0.55 BTC and 0.45 BTCT. 0.55 BTC you can output immediately. The remaining 0.45 BTCT you can either exchange for BTC at the market rate, or wait for their exchange at face value.

Representatives of BTC-e also pay attention to the fact that there are frequent cases of posting fake links on the forums about the allegedly new domain of the exchange. All official information about the service is placed only in the official Twitter and from the official account on the forum.

It is noteworthy that BTC-e published its previous statement on Bitcointalk.
