(Tokyo) -- The virtual currency exchange that lost 850-thousand bitcoins says it has found almost 25-percent of them. The CEO of Tokyo-based Mt. Gox said Thursday the bitcoins were found in a virtual "wallet" that the company no longer uses. He claimed the losses might have been due to a technical issue that permitted fraudulent withdrawals. Mt. Gox filed for bankruptcy late last month.
