Mt. Gox to extend payment due date to creditors


Start of repayment will also be extended

The crypto asset (virtual currency) exchange Mt.Gox, which went bankrupt in 2014, received court approval on the 9th and set a deadline for selecting a payment method and registering payment recipient information in 2023. It reported that it was extended again on the 6th of the month.

In January this year, it was changed to March 10, but the deadline was extended by about a month. There is a view that Mt. Gox’s repayment may lead to selling pressure for Bitcoin (BTC), etc., and there is growing interest in the expectation that repayment will be made as early as this month after the above-mentioned registration deadline.

It is expected that repayments will begin as soon as possible after the deadline.

In addition, this time, he said, “It is basically difficult to extend the deadline any further unless there is an unavoidable reason,” and urged prompt procedures. Creditors who have already completed the payment method selection and payment recipient information registration will be able to revise their details until April 6th.

Along with this change, the deadline for basic repayment, early lump sum repayment, and interim repayment will also be changed from September 30, 2011 to October 31, 2011. If the procedures proceed according to this guidance, repayment will be made between April 6th and October 30th.
