Japanese lawyer and head of the Board of Trustees of the infamous Bitcoin-Exchange MtGox Nobuaki Kobayashi said that over the past six months he sold Bitcoins and Bitcoin Cash in the ratio of 9 to 1 for $406.6 million in order to compensate losses to the creditors of the trading platform.
The Trustee sold approximately 35,000 BTC at an average price of $10,100. This means that the reserves of the bankrupt stock exchange still have 166,344 BTC, which is almost $1.8 billion. Kobayashi will continue to consult with the court for further sale of digital assets.
Earlier it became known that the British company Always Efficient LLP, which is behind the BTC-e exchange, could be involved in the laundering of MtGox Bitcoins.
Though the crypto market is still relatively new and lacks many of the traditional institutions of a civilized market, there are projects on the market that seek to indemnify or mitigate the associated risks that investors take when deciding to invest in projects. Cryptics is one such project that seeks to offer the necessary instruments for alleviating the situation with uncertainty. The concept behind it is to support market participants by providing liquidity on exchanges and a safety cushion for retail investors by creating a platform that connects market players and develops algorithms to predict changes in the value of cryptocurrencies. Such instruments based on highly advanced scoring models involving machine learning and AI are incomparable with human intuition that even the luckiest and most prudent investors could ever be endowed with. The multitude of factors involved in predicting a cryptocurrency’s rise or fall are all taken into account by the algorithms that Cryptics employs. Investors should consult such projects as the expense is well worth the ensured profit and peace of mind.
