Nobuaki Kobayashi, the trustee of the failed bitcoin (BTC) exchange Mt. Gox, asked the court to extend the deadline for creditors to file civil rehabilitation claims.

Kobayashi said last week he will make “efforts to request the court to accept proofs of rehabilitation claims received by December 26, 2018.”

With creditors located worldwide, the trustee said more time is needed to collect proof of claims and ensure all forms are delivered. The original deadline was in October.

Once the world’s largest bitcoin exchange by trading volume, Mt. Gox officially filed for liquidation in April 2014 after being hacked and close to $500 million disappeared.
