Fortress Investment Group shows Mt.Gox thousands of creditors willing to buy their debt

According to The Block, the Fortress Investment Group has sent letters to thousands of creditors of the now discontinued cryptocurrency exchange Mt.Gox, expressing willingness to buy its claims. Earlier news, Mt.Gox went bankrupt in 2014 after the company lost more than $ 480 million in bitcoin. Last year, a Japanese court changed the status of Mt.Gox's case from bankruptcy to civil recovery, which allowed the company to restructure its business and could cause creditors to recover some assets. According to the latest report on its website, Mt.Gox currently holds 141,868 Bitcoins on behalf of creditors, representing 15% of the 940,000 Bitcoins originally lost.
