The Trust Project is a worldwide group of news organizations working to establish transparency standards.
Mark Karpeles, the former CEO of Mt.Gox, the ex-largest Bitcoin exchange company that collapsed in 2014 has announced he’s creating a new company. It’s name is UNGOX, and according to Mark it’s going to be a rating agency for cryptocurrency exchanges all over the world. The company aims to perform in such areas as people, transparency, technology and legal situations.
Mt.Gox was launched in July 2010 and once held the 80% of the world’s Bitcoin trading volume. The company’s main focus was automated trading.
In February 2014 Mt.Gox was hacked and lost most of its assets. In January 2018 the theft of approximately $532 million was revealed by Coincheck.
In an interview for Forecast Mark Karpeles claims that he has learned his own mistakes and is now ready to return Bitcoin worth more than $6 billion.
Obviously, the lost Bitcoins have been gaining value in the past years, and it might be complex to pay them out. The solution Mark Karpeles found is to airdrop NFTs to the ex-users of Mt.Gox. The Non-Fungible Token will give to the customers a lifetime free access to the new UNGOX website and its services. The users that used to have an account on Mt.Gox and are able to provide any information needed to confirm it.
Before the crash, Mt.Gox used to have 1 066 097 clients, and Mark aims to airdrop 1 066 097 tokens.
According to Mark Karpeles’ plans, UNGOX will launch in the 3rd quarter of 2022.
