We are a group of MtGox service users who have seen suddenly how our Bitcoins have vanished. We understand that although it is not a recognized currency, we must have a number of guarantees for the service MtGox offered us.
We are aware of the fact that the affected users are scattered all over the world and in many cases, they will be owners of small amounts of Bitcoins. Because of this, we believe that the best way to defend our common interests is through this joint initiative we are trying to promote. If we are able to take a common position as affected users, we can enforce our rights considering a possible joint claim.
