Kraken has announced its willingness to pay a reward of $ 100,000 for information that will help in the search for cryptocurrency assets missing from the Canadian exchange QuadrigaCX.
As stated on the website of the exchange, since 2014, Kraken has invested significant resources and provided expert assistance to the trustee and investigators conducting the case of Mt. Gox, supporting the return of the largest possible number of bitcoins to the lenders of the exchange.
According to the founder, the exchange wants to raise awareness of the QuadrigaCX case and draw attention to it. As Kraken hopes, it will be able to help find at least some or all of the missing customer funds.
Simultaneously, the exchange conducted a podcast with Jess Powell, in which it published the most known information about the QuadrigaCX case and the alleged death of its founder and CEO, Gerald Cotten.
As stated by the exchange, information that will help in the search for missing funds, will be transfered to law enforcement agencies. Remuneration to informants can be paid both in cryptocurrency and in Fiat.
According to experts, QuadrigaCX’s debt to customers is $ 190 million ($ 137 million in cryptocurrencies and $ 53 million in Fiat). Due to unrecorded obligations, this amount may, however, turn out to be $ 6 million higher.
