The Receiver files his fourth report, which summarizes the receivership through January 30, 2017.


On April 4, 2016, the Honorable Kenneth A. Marra of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida appointed James D. Sallah, Esq. as Receiver for Project Investors, Inc. d/b/a Cryptsy (“Cryptsy”), pursuant to the Order Granting Plaintiffs’ Renewed Motion for Appointment of James D. Sallah, Esq. as Receiver/Corporate Monitor over Defendant Project Investors, Inc. d/b/a Cryptsy (the “Appointment Order”).  The receivership is based on allegations that Cryptsy’s primary principal, Paul Vernon, misappropriated millions of dollars in investor funds and cryptocurrencies from a significant number of cryptocurrency investors worldwide.  Pursuant to the Appointment Order, the Receiver was appointed over, among other things, all assets, funds and/or cryptocurrencies derived from Cryptsy for the benefit of investors.

Regarding the issue on recovering assets, there may be in the future a claims procedure in the Florida legal proceeding where the Receiver makes a distribution/repayment to investors who have a valid claim/investment.  The recovery/repayment, assuming funds are even secured and available in the future, would be made in the future and in an amount or procedure yet-to-be determined and yet-to-be-approved by the Court.  Right now and for likely the next several months, the Receiver is and will be attempting to secure assets associated with Cryptsy and account/wallet information associated with Cryptsy.
