As the saga around Mt. Gox hacking Bitcoins (BTC) is nowhere near an end, the former CEO of the platform, veteran cryptocurrency entrepreneur Mark Karpelès, has made an important statement.

Mark Karpelès makes things clear about 80,000 Bitcoins (BTC) from 1Feex address: Statement

A transfer of 80,000 Bitcoins (BTC) that were sent from Mt. Gox exchange to a Bitcoin (BTC) wallet with a public address starting from 1Feex was not authorized by the platform's wallet.

As such, all of them should be considered stolen property belonging to the Mt. Gox estate for the profit of the Mt. Gox creditors. This announcement was made by Mark Karpelès, former CEO of the now-defunct Japanese exchange.

He shared this message as an answer to the discussion about allegations by Dr. Craig Steven Wright, a "Fake Satoshi." Dr. Wright attempts to confirm that he is the only legitimate owner of 80,000 Bitcoins (BTC) in question.
