Asformerly reported, BTC-e– after its initial domain had actually been taken by police following the arrest of a Russian national and the levying of a $110 million finefor cash laundering offenses– stated it had actually protected “55 [percent] of the funds” initially held by the exchange, with the rest being seized. Yesterday, BTC-erenewed access through a brand-new domain, enabling users to examine their balances and interact through the chat box.
In an update, the exchange stated that users would be able to withdraw the part of their funds still readily available– offered that they accept an offer which would see BTC-e issue a debt token focused on offseting the seized funds.
Thedeclaration checks out:
“Tomorrow, on September 2, 2017, it will be possible to withdraw 55% of the funds from the account…on the condition that our debt obligations are abandoned to the remaining 45% of funds in the form of tokens. More details about the conditions, the principle of calculation and the form of output will be available tomorrow.”
Usersthat choose to keep their funds on the website, the declaration goes on to describe, will have their funds moved to an as-yet-unrevealed domain that will function as the house for the newly-launched BTC-e.
“On the day the site is launched, the balance will be recalculated at the market rate and will be credited to accounts with a higher ratio than 55/45….Tokens will be credited to your account balance, which you can use for bidding and releasing codes,”the exchange stated.
