MtGox users will all receive a part of their BTC back

Today I received this mail:

Creditor No. XX-XXXXXX

To each of MtGox user

We received your email informing us of your intention to file a claim assessment procedure.

However, on April 19, 2019, the creditors who objected to your self-approved rehabilitation claim withdrew their objections.

As a result, the approval of your self-approved rehabilitation claim has become effective, and you no longer need to file an application for claim assessment. Even if you have received a PDF form of the application from the Rehabilitation Trustee, you do not have to submit the application.

For further details, please refer to the Q&As by clicking on the following link:

https://www.mtgox.com/img/pdf/20190403_qa_en.pdf

Rehabilitation Debtor: MtGox Co., Ltd.

Rehabilitation Trustee: Nobuaki Kobayashi, Attorney-at-law

TL;DR

This basically means if you had any BTC on MtGox when it went offline. Even if you did not fill out a claim, there has been made a claim in your name for you and it is now approved.

So you might in the end receive some of the BTC back, even if you did not lift a finger.

Yay can’t wait to receive the remains of the 0.01 BTC I had on MtGox at this time ^^

edit3:

Just to clarify. That does not mean it will happen soon.

Nor do I know how much of the money is left.

All it means is:
If you had money on MtGox you have made legal claims on that money even if you did not do so yourself and are now a creditor in the bankruptcy case of MtGox.

Once the case is closed you will (probably) receive your share.

What Russia’s ‘Digital Iron Curtain’ Means for Bitcoin Users

The Russian Duma approved a bill that would enable the country to have a “Great Firewall” or “Iron Curtain” similar to what China has. The result of the law is that, whenever the government wants to, it can censor all incoming and outgoing traffic traveling through state-owned channels. ‘Sovereign’ Internet Just an Excuse for Heavy-Handed Censorship Privacy advocates have long warned about Russia’s alarming stance on internet regulation. The onerous intended purpose of this “sovereign internet” bill is to keep Russia online in the event of a crisis, but critics allege that it’s meant to give the government greater powers
