U.S. District Judge Loosens Freeze on Bitcoins

U.S. District Judge Gary Feinerman, who froze the assets belonging to Bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox Co., according to Bloomberg News, has loosened his restraint and revised the temporary order that he issued on March 11. The plan is reportedly to allow the movement and tracking of small amounts of the digital crypto-currency.

Bitcoins are created by a process called mining, in which participants verify and record payments into a public ledger in exchange for transaction fees and newly minted bitcoins. Users send and receive bitcoins using wallet software on a personal computer, mobile device, or a web application. Bitcoins can be obtained by mining or in exchange for products, services, or other currencies.

In early February 2014, Mt. Gox, one of the largest Bitcoin exchanges, suspended withdrawals, citing technical issues related to “transaction malleability”. It has been reported that one week later the price of a bitcoin had come down from over US $800 on February 1 to US $400. On February 24, 2014, Mt. Gox’s website was taken offline and all trading stopped.
