(Answer) Those who have not filed proof of claims in the bankruptcy proceedings or who have filed proof of claims after the filing period had passed (i.e., the date of the investigation of claims, May 25, 2016), may file proof of claims in the civil rehabilitation proceedings. We plan to post further details on this website.
If you registered at MTGox before mid-2011 you can use the user database leak from around then to find your userID, which you can then use to search the trade records.
Download this file WARNING FILE CONTAINS VIRUS, DO NOT RUN EXECUTABLES INSIDE ZIP. To be safe, extract the files inside MtGox2014Leak.zip\backoffice\Exports __ONLY__: https://archive.org/details/MtGox2014Leak
The exports folder contains 2 zip files, one contains a list of transactions in csv format, the other contains the output of a sql query displaying all balances.
Go into your e-mail records and find any transaction id, it will look like a v1 UUID (example: 682b3d0a-67d7-4b62-8ed4-4e1d39d54a69)
Look for it inside the btc_xfer_report.csv. The UUID before it on the same line is your wallet.
Look for your wallet UUID inside the mtgox_balances file. If it's not there you either didn't have a wallet at the time of the dump, or your balance was 0.
DO NOT USE THE EXECUTABLE IN /backoffice/Bin/TibanneBackOffice.zip - IT IS MALWARE
Your user ID is a UUID, and can be obtained from your Mt.Gox account creation email, from the account confirmation link (example, sanitized)
Search or grep for this UUID in the unzipped mtgox_balances file and you should have values for BTC and your primary currency. Divide these values by 100000000 to get actual amounts.
The 'stamp' column appears to be a timestamp of last update of these values, and the last date in this leak with significant activity is 2014-02-25.

"Further, due to the stay of the bankruptcy proceedings, MTGOX bankruptcy claims filling system (the “System”), which was being provided on its website, has been temporarily suspended. As in the bankruptcy proceedings, the Civil Rehabilitation Trustee is expected to accept the method of filing a proof of rehabilitation claim through the System in the Civil Rehabilitation Proceedings as well. Therefore, please take note of your user name and password registered on the System."
Q15) How was the Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash sold?
A15) As in sales from December 2017 to February 2018, upon consultation with cryptocurrency transaction experts, Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash were sold in a manner that had no effect on
market price and not by ordinary sale on an exchange
Wasn't there a paper that showed a strong correlation between a the time of the bitcoin transfers from MtGox and subsequent strong decreases in BTC prices?
They could also have sold an existing position to net their new exposure to zero.
The coins could have been moved around for other reasons than to sell them. The coins could also have been sold at certain price at a certain time, but with a contract that says it won't be moved until a time in the future.
The market did not react to coins being sold. It reacted to coins being moved and it made certain assumptions.
As far as I can see, the trustee has done everything correct regarding the sale (not flooding the market). It's just the market that is so volatile that it reacts to every tiny thing that happens.
And yet, whoever sold off at that time is probably pretty happy with themselves.
In general yes, but for those coins in particular no. All of the coins were swept into the trustee's wallet. At that point the trustee could not do anything with those funds other than to sell off some of them. If all of the funds were moved then sure, maybe it's some other reason or the trustee was handing control over to another party or something, but only moving a portion of the funds after they had all been secured without touching the rest can only mean one thing.
a) any owed assets will be paid in Bitcoin, unlike the bankruptcy proceedings which gave you fiat at (I believe) the rate when mtgox went under
b) a form will be posted to mtgox.com to fill out and send to them before October 22, 2018
Has anyone who filed in the bankruptcy proceedings got any money back? If so did you get it all back?
That's why people are so excited about this news.
The fact that I now have to dig through my paperwork and refile another claim, and maybe wait another year or five is annoying.
Let's put it this way. If I were to offer you my full stake of whatever I am due from MtGox in the next 5 years, would you pay me $450 right now? (Assume I can prove to you that my original claim of not quite a bitcoin was valid)
I have to decide how I feel about this now, and how I feel about it now is "well, my chance of a payoff just got more uncertain".
The longer we wait, the less uncertainty there is.
If you think I should be happy about the news, then you should want to take the risk right now not in a few months after whatever new information comes out.
I think I made my point. It looked like I was on track to get ~$400 sometime fairly soon. Now I maybe get a bunch more, but possibly further years down the line, and I have to file more paperwork and keep thinking about it and all that nonsense. That's not an update I'm happy with, even though the nominal claim I have is larger.
I'd rather just have the $400! And so would you.
It took a very long time but it's nice to see that there will be people getting their Bitcoins back. I'd assumed most people had given up hope or were at best thinking they would get the original fiat value.
Bravo to the trustee and those involved.
Besides he has a lot of liabilities to cover going the unprecedented route that is cryptocurrency civil rehabilitation case, can't just blame him for not giving us BTC back sooner.
You're likely thinking of the Silk Road.
this is the largest and last Sword of Damocles hanging over bitcoin for now
