Court decides that assets belong to the account holder of cryptopiaThrough the recent announcement, the exchange has given a sigh of relief to its account holders and told them about the court's verdict. In the court’s document, it has been clearly mentioned that all the assets completely belong to the account holders of the exchange.
This document also specified that the assets or cryptocurrency of Cryptopia belongs to a trust. All the account holders of the firm act as the co-beneficiaries of the trust.

While, on the other hand, some are there who are still doubtful that they will not get their funds back. The major reason behind this suspicion could be because of a few statements in the document by the court.
