Mt. Gox Creditors Almost to Receive Repayments: Potential Impact on Bitcoin Price

Nine years after the infamous collapse of the Mt. Gox Bitcoin exchange, creditors are finally getting some relief. According to recent reports, repayments will begin on March 10, unlocking 137,890 BTC, which is worth over $3 billion at current prices. However, this news has also raised concerns about the potential impact on the Bitcoin market.

What is the Mt. Gox Scandal?

The Mt. Gox scandal refers to the collapse of one of the largest Bitcoin exchanges in the world, which resulted in the loss of approximately 850,000 Bitcoins belonging to its customers. Mt. Gox, headquartered in Tokyo, was responsible for 80% of global Bitcoin trading volume in 2013. In February 2014, the exchange suddenly ceased operations, citing a hack that resulted in the theft of a large amount of Bitcoins. However, it was later discovered that the exchange had been operating with significant insolvency. You can compare it to the story of FTX.

Gox era back in February 2014, was approximately $800.
