The joint provisional liquidators of Bittrex Global (Bermuda) Ltd, the failed digital asset platform, have filed an application with the island’s Supreme Court for the purpose of determining the ownership of the digital assets held in the company’s standard and enhanced wallet accounts.

The application was filed by Andrew Howie, Margot MacInnis and Carmel King, of professional services firm Grant Thornton.

Now, the Supreme Court has issued an order giving directions regarding the matter.

Any party wishing to be heard on the application by the JPLs must file and serve evidence in reply supporting or opposing the application by 4pm on April 25.

The hearing date will be confirmed on the JPLs’ Bittrex website once confirmed by the court.

Skeleton arguments must be filed and served not less than three clear days before the hearing.

Bittrex Global (Bermuda) Ltd was wound up in the Supreme Court on March 28.

The winding up order granted by Larry Mussenden, the Chief Justice, included a provision that Grant Thornton continue in its role as JPLs.
