The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) appealed to former QuadrigaCX users of the Bitcoin exchange, who suffered as a result of its collapse, to help with establishing the circumstances of the incident. This is reported by the Cointelegraph.

In particular, a questionnaire has been published on the agency’s website, the answers to which the FBI plans to use as part of an ongoing investigation.

Among other things, users are asked to report logins on QuadrigaCX and clarify whether they have passed verification. It is also required to indicate what approximate balance users had on their accounts as of January 31, 2019 and when they conducted the last transaction on the platform.

Additionally, the FBI asks to provide other related information, including deposit addresses and account statements.

In January the QuadrigaCX exchange went offline, citing the maintenance on the site as a reason. Later it turned out that the site had lost access to $ 190 million in the accounts of its users, and some of the Ether was withdrawn from the exchange on the eve of the death of its founder Gerald Cotten.

In early February, due to an error, QuadrigaCX lost $370k cryptocurrency.

In April, the Supreme Court of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia ordered QuadrigaCX to begin bankruptcy proceedings. At the same time, based on data from Ernst & Young auditor, Judge Michael Wood, stressed that the restructuring of the business are unlikely.
