Mark Karpeles announces commemorative NFT drop for Mt. Gox users
Owning a Mt. Gox NFT proves you’re OG… you were there in the early days of Bitcoin, and now you can prove it on the blockchain," said the project’s whitepaper.
The former CEO of the now-defunct crypto exchange Mt. Gox has announced that certain users will be eligible to receive commemorative nonfungible tokens, or NFTs.
In a Monday announcement on Twitter, Mark Karpelès said that crypto users who were Mt. Gox customers between 2010 and 2014 — during which time the exchange was hacked and subsequently declared bankruptcy — could register to claim a free NFT. According to the CEO, the offer extends to users who had a balance or have claimed losses from the defunct exchange.
If you are one of these OG’s, congrats!
