  • Mt. Gox intends to pay out creditors 142,000 BTC, 143,000 BCH, and 69 billion yen by October 31, 2024.
  • The payment status on Kraken’s API, which reads “payment in preparation,” indicates that the distribution process is getting closer.

According to a recent Reddit post and an earlier report by Chinese crypto journalist Wu Blockchain, as of May 13, the Mt. Gox payment API interface on Kraken displays a status of “payment in preparation.”

This move implies that the much awaited distribution of Mt. Gox’s remaining assets is getting close to happening.

The notorious cryptocurrency exchange, which was hit hard in 2014, is supposed to provide its creditors access to its 142,000 BTC, 143,000 BCH, and 69 billion yen holdings by October 31, 2024, in line with what ETHNews previously disclosed.

The community had previously counselled debtors to temper their expectations about when they would get their money.

There was much conjecture that, rather than signaling an impending distribution, the recent adjustments to the payment status may have been done to lessen the number of creditors’ questions.

But this latest update seems to suggest that the distribution process is at last proceeding and offers a clearer timetable.

Background Information on Mt. Gox

Once the biggest Bitcoin exchange globally, Mt. Gox filed for bankruptcy in 2014 after hackers stole 850,000 BTC. Thousands of creditors were left in uncertainty, and the collapse had a big impact on the cryptocurrency market.

The years-long payback delays brought on by numerous legal disputes and administrative barriers have made those affected angry and uncertain.

The cryptocurrency market may suffer greatly from the approaching distribution of such a large quantity of BTC and BCH. Market players are speculating on possible effects on pricing and liquidity, with 142,000 BTC and 143,000 BCH scheduled for release.

Although some think that the distribution would put further pressure on sellers, others counter that creditors might decide to hang onto their assets and reduce the immediate market disruptions.

Perspective of Creditors and Future Prospects

Creditors are feeling both cautiously optimistic and skeptical. Many creditors are nonetheless cautious about more delays, even if the most recent bulletins have brought some clarity.

A major turning point in ending one of the longest-running stories in bitcoin history will be reached when the distribution procedure is successfully completed.

Everybody will be watching Mt. Gox and its officials to see if they can keep their word as the October 31 deadline draws near. The way this distribution turns out will have an impact on the creditors as well as establish a standard for future handling of comparable circumstances.
