Mt. Gox Legal is a co-operative organization consisting of over 900 creditors of Mt. Gox, a former bitcoin exchange that suffered a huge, sustained hacking attack between 2013 to 2014. The attack resulted in Mt. Gox customers losing an estimated total of 125,000 bitcoins (BTC). The organization was founded in 2017 by Andy Pag, a BBC reporter, in order to help those pursuing legal recourse against Mt. Gox. The website features a forum where members can discuss their efforts. A payment of $100/£85 is required to join.[1]

In April 2019, Pag Pag announced that he would be stepping down from his role with Mt. Gox Legal. He said that he had "put [his] career on hold for 18 months," and that he wanted to "move on with his life."[2]
