Bad possible scenario for Bitcoin. MT Gox exchange hacked 850,000 bitcoin gets returned to investors at current
Price Without adjusting to price at the time ($400 instead of $8,500 now) That bitcoin would now be $8 billion dollars worth. At current price. Not even estimating bitcoin rising to 100k before the case settles (will take years) if they cash out at a price of that sort bye bye bitcoin. To the people currently appealing this judgement: Y'all hella greedy. You should just get the 400$ bitcoin was worth at the time. Nothing more. The investors after had to invest, risk and revive the cryptocurrency without you guys. You got burned, it's a risk EVERYONE IS CRYPTO MAKES, but not at new investors expense. We don't have any guarantees by investing, and no government backing us up yet so why should you? Many of us have made many loses in crypto due to scams and have gotten nothing back. Be happy you're getting at least your initial investment. No more than $400 for you guys. Without us your bitcoin would be worth $0 and you'd have nothing to fight about. Period. ✌️ Be happy with that $400 dollars per bitcoin instead of getting bitcoin back, because we would all cash out way before you get to a computer. Because when the case was opened and MTGox filed for bankruptcy legally bitcoin was worth only $400. That's what they are owed at the time it was filed. When you don't get the item back you get the value worth at the time of The bankruptcy- that's what he company owes you. You are not entitled to future gains in the market. UPDATE: this also applies to people who had their Nano stolen at Bitgrail. New investors should be Leary of Nano if a case gets opened.
