MtGox submits records to Tokyo police
(03-26 14:39)

Failed Bitcoin exchange MtGox said it has submitted “electronic records'' and other documents to the Tokyo police after it collapsed in February.
The US and Hong Kong does not accept bitcoin as legal tender.
The Tokyo-based exchange filed for bankruptcy protection in Japan last month, saying it had lost 850,000 coins, worth nearly US$500 million at the time.
It said last week it had found 200,000 of them in a storage device.
“MtGox Co. Ltd. consulted with the metropolitan police department with regard to the disappearance of bitcoins,'' the company said in a statement issued under the name of its representative director, Mark Karpeles.
“It has submitted necessary electronic records and other related documents,'' it said, adding the firm ``intends to fully cooperate with each competent authority.’’—AFP
