Mt. Gox Bankruptcy Trustee, Attorney Nobuaki Kobayashi, today announced to extend deadline for Bitcoin exchange users to file their bankruptcy claims online.
According to the updated details, Mt. Gox users can now file fresh claims by 12 pm on July 29, 2015 (Japan Time), as opposed to previous deadline, which was May 29, 2015. The new update also allows users to make changes to their filed applications (for example, change in address, company names, etc.) However users cannot modify the amount that they had claimed during the first filing. Excerpt from the notice:
“Nearer the time of distribution, the bankruptcy trustee is planning to give users an opportunity to use the system again to make changes to the details of their bankruptcy claims other than increasing the amount of the bankruptcy claims that users have filed.”
Once the new deadline is crossed, users will only be able to view their online bankruptcy claims or change the claimant as per their wish.
