Einstein, suspected of misappropriating $11.2 million in user funds, has only $45,000 in assets left

According to TNW, earlier this month, Canadian cryptocurrency exchange Einstein was shut down for allegedly diverting $16 million ($12.1 million) in user funds. Grant Thornton Law Firm was appointed to confiscate the assets of the exchange and return the “alleged lost funds” to the user. However, a court document published yesterday stated that Grant Thornton found that the exchange had only about $15,000 in cryptocurrency and $30,000 in cash. Grant Thornton has sent notices to several banks in Canada and the United States that the exchange and its founder Michael Ongun Gokturk may hold investments or deposits at these banks.
