Sino/US group seeks to buy Mt. Gox, plans Japan exchange

    A Chinese/American bitcoin venture is planning a new Japan-based exchange and wants to acquire failed Mt.Gox and its assets, CoinDesk reported.
    The venture is made up of China ATM producer BitOcean and New York-based exchange technology platform Atlas ATS. It will be named BitOcean Japan.
    The group wants to buy the bankrupt exchange’s assets and will be making a submission to Nobuaki Kobayashi, the court-appointed trustee overseeing the case, it said. It isn’t a plan to resurrect the Japanese exchange.
    BitOcean Japan will still open the new exchange with an official launch date in August even if the acquisition of the Mt. Gox assets is denied.
