About two weeks after the loss of $ 170 million in Nano cryptocurrency from the Bitgrail exchange, the trading platform operator became concerned about whether to close the insolvent company or try to start over..
The Bitgrail exchange operator asks users to help him decide on the future of the site
The decision was so difficult that Francesco Firano, also known as “The Bomber,” was forced to seek advice from his Twitter followers..
In Italian, Firano invites his subscribers to choose one of two options: bankruptcy or restart.
As expected, this tweet immediately began to leave messages from victims of a recent attack demanding their money back..
Filing for bankruptcy will almost certainly kill all chances of recovering damages, Firano writes. The restart will allow him to immediately pay investors 20% of the funds and another 80% in the future..
Recall that 17 million Nano tokens (formerly Raiblocks) were mined by cybercriminals. Until recently, Bitgrail was one of the few trading platforms supporting Raiblocks, and therefore, despite its dubiousness, has won the trust of members of the cryptocurrency community. Now they tend to blame the Nano team for what happened, which made them active users of Bitgrail..
The situation began to escalate at the end of last month, when Bitgrail announced that it would soon stop serving non-European users, which immediately affected Raiblocks with a 30% drop. At that time, there was no talk of more serious problems on the exchange, although many believe that Firano was hiding certain facts that he knew long before the official announcement..
Shortly after the hack, Firano announced that he had contacted law enforcement about the incident, but the lack of information on the progress of the investigation leads investors to believe that here, too, the words of the semi-anonymous trading platform operator are at odds with the case..
