    How Will Mt. Gox's Bankruptcy Shake Out?

    Daily Journal

    Bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox recently filed a civil rehabilitation proceeding under Japanese law, and subsequently filed a companion case in Dallas, Texas, under Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. The U.S. Bankruptcy Court issued an initial stay (injunction) to protect Mt. Gox and its U.S. assets from actions by creditors and set a hearing for April 1 and 2 to consider whether Mt. Gox would receive the full protections allowed to foreign companies by Chapter 15. If the U.S. court allows the Chapter 15 case to be maintained, certain provisions of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code will apply to parties in interest. This article discusses what the implications of these cases are for Mt. Gox's creditors.
