    I’ve missed the deadline for submission. Is there any way I still would be able to?

    ADMIN – Hi Eleonora,

    I don’t think you have much in the way of recourse. I am so sorry.

  5. Cromon says:

    I think you should re-open the registrations for claims as I feel a fair few people will have missed this! I for one lost an amount of various coins on the exchange and never saw this till now!!

    ADMIN – Hi Cromon,

    I can’t do that myself and there is no legal precedent of class action settlements opening again.

  6. Nick says:

    I received no notification that this lawsuit existed until today when I tried to access my account, so now I’ve missed the deadline, what way the method of notification?

    ADMIN – Hi Nick,

    Usually class action administrators post on relevant publications, send emails or send stuff over snail mail
