Mizuho Bank诉求被驳回 Mt Gox美国用户追讨损失再进一步

美国法官已经批准了针对日本巨头Mizuho Bank与已破产的比特币兑换网站Mt Gox关系上的集体诉讼。

近日,美国地方法院法官Gary Feinerman驳回了Mizuho该案属于日本的说法,这也为代表Mt Gox美国客户进行集体诉讼方式铺平道路。

2014年2月,Mt Gox在日本申请了破产保护。一个月后Mt Gox在美国的客户失去了85万比特币,市场价格价值5亿美元。Karpeles将损失归咎于数据区块链上的软件bug,认为是这个漏洞导致黑客掠夺了平台用户账户。

同月Mizuho也面临了同样理由的诉讼,因为这是这家银行存管着Mt Gox所有美国用户的存款。Mizuho被控未能及时从MT Gox账户将客户资金分离,并继续向陷入困境的公司提供服务。

诉讼记录显示,当有客户抱怨提款延迟时,Mt Gox只是简单地将其解释为技术原因。而Mizuho尽管知道真相,“却仍然沉默不语,允许公众继续公众上当受骗。”

A US judge has given the go-ahead to a class action lawsuit against Mizuho Bank over the Japanese giant's relationship with failed bitcoin exchange Mt Gox.
US District Judge Gary Feinerman has rejected Mizuho's argument that the case belongs in Japan, paving the way for the class action on behalf of American customers of Mt Gox, according to Reuters.

Mt Gox filed for bankruptcy protection in Japan in February 2014 and the US one month later after losing 850,000 bitcoins - worth more than $500 million at top-of-the-market prices. Karpeles blamed the losses on a software bug in the blockchain that let hackers plunder accounts.

The same month the suit against Mizuho - which handled all Mt Gox deposits for US customers - was filed, accusing the bank of failing to segregate customer funds from MT Gox accounts and of continuing to provide banking services to the troubled firm even as it was evidently heading for collapse.

According to the suit, when customers who complained about withdrawal delays were told by Mt Gox that they were due to technical problems, Mizuho "stood silent while allowing the public to continue being duped," despite knowing the truth.
