Mt. Gox, a prominent crypto-currency exchange that declared bankruptcy late last month has taken its share of lumps following a security event that claimed up to 7 percent of the global bitcoin supply from its secure servers. And the hits keep on rolling.
On March 12, shortly after the company filed for bankruptcy protection in the United States and Japan, a Federal Judge based in Chicago froze the U.S. assets of Mt. Gox CEO Mark Karpeles in reaction to multiple customer lawsuits brought against the exchange. The freeze will allow time for investigations associated with those suits.
