Following a lengthy analysis of 20,219 victim claims totaling $99 million, the Zhunrize Receiver has determined $41 million across 2858 claims is actually payable. Along with nine vendor claims totaling $338,254, the Receiver has asked the court to approve the distribution of funds on these claims.
Back in August the Zhunrize Receiver announced that 2,395 out of 19,905 filed victim claims, representing losses of $33.9 million dollars, have been allowed. The Receiver has been working with victims of disallowed claims, with another 466 claims since allowed.
