The trustee of the bankrupt Mt.Gox cryptocurrency exchange Nobuaki Kobayashi sold Bitcoins and Bitcoin Cash for a total amount of 35 billion yen ($ 318 million) through the BitPoint trading platform, Cointelegraph reports.
According to the publication, a group of creditors GoxDox.com gained access to the data of the Tokyo District Court in the Mt.Gox case, which confirmed the connection of huge BitPoint transactions with the board of trustees of the once legendary stock exchange.
So, billions of yen were transferred to Kobayashi’s bank account with BitPoint. It is likely that this trading platform was chosen for the sale of Mt.Gox reserves for the purpose of subsequent payments to creditors, despite the fact that the trustees have already been heavily criticized for using exchange platforms instead of OTC.
Recall that as part of the civil rehabilitation process, creditors can recover up to $ 1 billion.
It is noteworthy that CoinLab CEO Peter Vincennes recently demanded that trustees Mt.Gox refund $ 16 billion for the failed agreement of 2012.
