What will the liquidators do?
In the British Virgin Islands liquidators are officers of the Court. The primary role of the liquidators is to recover assets for creditors as part of an orderly wind down of the Company’s affairs. This includes investigating the cause of the Company’s failure. They can formally interview relevant persons and have statutory powers to compel individuals to attend for public examination, if needed. The liquidators are also responsible for adjudicating on the claims of creditors and when funds allow making distributions to creditors with valid claims.
At this early stage of the liquidation we are formulating our strategy to protect the assets of the company and those under its management for the benefit of the creditors. Liquidations are complex processes, particularly where cryptoassets are concerned, and the whole process can often take a long time to conclude. However the liquidators will update customers and creditors directly, regularly and with meaningful detail as and when circumstances allow, as well as opportunities for Q&As.
The Liquidators initial concern is to secure the crypto assets and its operating platform that the Company was using prior to its liquidation. The liquidators have a range of options to achieve this. Alongside this work, the liquidators will also establish the circumstances leading up to the company’s liquidation, and report on that to creditors.
The liquidators have also already taken steps to:-

The creditors meeting is held to hear an account of actions taken by the liquidator since appointment, and ratify the liquidators appointment amongst other formalities. Access details will be provided in due course to creditors.
30 April – 2nd Town Hall call will be scheduled to be held
