As I've written before, we unfortunately had about 30% of our CFS asset funds as BTC the moment the bter hack happened. As a result these BTC have been converted into BTC-B, an IOU that is meant to be redeeemable for real BTC in the future, based on bter's income on trading fees.
We've now opened the buyback of CFSGOLD at the price of 0.7 bitgold per CFSGOLD, so people can get their share of the free bitgold back. We're also going to distribute the bter IOUs once they start paying out - if they pay out in full it should mean that all investors will have received approximately the full amount of what they put into CFSGOLD, not accounting for exchange rate swings in the gold and btc price. We will distribute this BTC based on a snapshot of CFSGOLD holders at block number 2000000, so remember to not delete the accounts you have that held CFSGOLD until the IOU has been paid out, or you will lose the funds.
The hack was really bad for bitshares and especially bad for cryptohedge, but I'm glad that we got most of our money back and I'm optimistic that the bter IOU will also pay out some amount of money, perhaps even the full amount.
