The recent hacking incident involving Bitfinex and the damage control measures taken by the exchange is already well-known. As the company continues to investigate the incident, a legal team seems to be preparing itself to file a class action lawsuit against the company.
A website BitfinexLawsuit.com is inviting all Bitfinex customers to join hands and fight against the cryptocurrency exchange. Soon after the hacking incident, Bitfinex reported that 119, 756 bitcoins were stolen by the hackers. The cryptocurrency platform later announced that it will be generalizing the losses across all its customers, forcing them to part with about 36 percent of their holdings in Bitfinex accounts. In return, the platform issued an equivalent of BFX tokens with a promise to compensate for their losses on a later date.
Bitfinex has announced that it will either buy back the BFX tokens or allocate an equivalent in shares. However, the absence of a concrete timeline has left many customers disgruntled. BitfinexLawsuit.com is targeting these customers with a promise to recover 100 percent of the funds from the exchange. The website claims to have a team of expert lawyers, consultants and security specialists in place who will be assisting in filing a class action
