If I held currency on Mt. Gox, but not actually bitcoins, am I in a different situation to those who held bitcoins? For example, if I had $700 AUD but 0 BTC. I can't get any information regarding this online and do not think contacting Mt. Gox would be helpful (nor possible).

Related, but concerned about BTC held in Mt. Gox rather than fiat: I have/had 31 bitcoins on MtGox; What are my options now?


  • Mt. Gox have been liquidated. Your situation is no different from everyone else, unfortunately. You wont get your money sooner, if at all, than everyone else. It's sad to realize, but you cant do much.

Unfortunately you are in the same boat as all the people that had BTC at Mt.Gox. Think about it positively, you are now part of a club of people that all had their money stolen / lost.

If you are keen to try and get your money back, keep checking in at http://www.reddit.com/r/mtgoxinsolvency. But if you are taking this route, prepare to be really patient.

Here is the latest update from the above reddit thread.
