Former Mt. Gox CEO Mark Karpeles has a simple message for creditors of the disgraced, now-defunct Bitcoin exchange: I’m on your side.
Karpeles, who oversaw the Tokyo-based exchange during its infamous collapse in 2014, reiterated this claim in a Reddit AMA on Wednesday, alleging that he does not want to profit from the company’s bankruptcy, which is currently proceeding through the Japanese courts.
“I do not want to become instantly rich. I do not ask for forgiveness. I just want to see this end as soon as possible with everyone receiving their share of what they had on MtGox so everyone, myself included, can get some closure,” he added.
