Current BTC Market Trends

CoinMarketCap data indicates that the current price of BTC is about $68,033.44. This represents a 1.26% drop throughout the last day. Moreover, for the last week, Bitcoin has been trending bearish, declining by 4.59%.

A previous ETHNews report noted that the Mt. Gox payment API interface on Kraken showed a status of “payment in preparation.” This omen implies that the trustee may be getting ready to begin the much anticipated process of client refunds.

Once the biggest Bitcoin exchange in the world, Mt. Gox declared bankruptcy in 2014 after losing 850,000 BTC. Ever since, impacted clients have been waiting impatiently for their money.

Prospective Effects on Mt. Gox Creditors

In the protracted story of Mt. Gox’s bankruptcy, this action may represent a major turning point if the trustee is ready to reimburse customers. Though years of uncertainty and court cases have befallen creditors, the current activity may be the start of a settlement.

The huge amount of Bitcoin transferred may also have an impact on the larger cryptocurrency market, possibly changing trading volumes and prices.

Although the Mt. Gox trustee’s recent Bitcoin movement has generated conjecture, official confirmation of the reimbursement procedure should be awaited. It is advised of customers and creditors to keep updated via the trustee’s official methods.
