I. WHETHER AND HOW TO SUBMIT A CLAIM – READ PARAGRAPHS 1 – 3 TO DETERMINE WHICH PARAGRAPH APPLIES TO YOU:
IF YOU DID NOT MAKE A CLAIM IN EITHER THE CRYPTSY SETTLEMENT FROM THE CLASS ACTION STYLED Leidel, et al. v. Project Investors, Inc. d/b/a CRYPTSY, Paul Vernon, and Lorie Ann Nettles, U.S. District Court - Southern District of Florida, Case No. 9:16-cv-80060-MARRA (the “Cryptsy Case”) OR IN THE CLASS ACTION STYLED Leidel v. Coinbase, Inc., U.S. District Court - Southern District of Florida, Case No. 9:16-cv-81992-MARRA (the “Coinbase Case”)
1. To recover as a Member of the Class based on your claims in this action, which is the Cryptsy Case, you must complete and, on page hereof, sign this Proof of Claim form, and include the required supporting documents. If you fail to submit a timely and properly addressed (as set forth in paragraph 5 below) Proof of Claim form, your claim may be rejected; and you may not receive any recovery from the Net Additional Recovery obtained in the Cryptsy Case through the action styled James D. Sallah, Esq., not individually, but solely in his capacity as the Court-appointed Receiver for Project Investors, Inc., d/b/a Cryptsy. v. Xiuxia Liu, U.S. Dist. Ct. - S.D. Fla. -- Case No. 9:20-cv-81041-MARRA (the “Liu Action”). Submission of this Proof of Claim form, however, does not assure that you will share in the proceeds of the Net Additional Recovery. Your claim will be reviewed to determine if it satisfies the requirements for distribution of the additional recovery.
IF YOUR CLAIM IN THE CRYPTSY AND/OR COINBASE CASE WAS REJECTED
2. To recover as a Member of the Class based on your claims in this action, which is the Cryptsy Action, you must complete and, on page hereof, sign this Proof of Claim, and include all supporting documents that you did not submit in the Cryptsy and/or Coinbase Case. If you do not submit any additional, new supporting documents, your claim for recovery arising out of the Liu Action will be rejected. If you fail to submit a timely and properly addressed (as set forth in paragraph 5 below) Proof of Claim form, your claim may be rejected and you may not receive any recovery from the Net Settlement Fund created in connection with the additional recovery obtained in the Liu Action. Submission of this Proof of Claim form, however, does not assure that you will share in the proceeds of the Net Additional Recovery. Your claim will be reviewed to determine if it satisfies the requirements for distribution of the additional recovery.
IF YOUR CLAIM IN THE CRYPTSY AND/OR COINBASE CASE WAS APPROVED AND PAID
3. To recover as a Member of the Class based on your claims in the Cryptsy Case, you need not take any action. You do not have to submit a Claim Form in order to receive a payment in this additional recovery obtained in the Liu Action. The approved claim that you submitted in the Cryptsy and/or Coinbase Case will be deemed approved in this case, and you will receive a distribution payment here. If you have since discovered proof of additional holdings at Cryptsy for which you have not yet made a claim, you can make an additional claim here.
5. IF: (A) YOU DID NOT MAKE A CLAIM IN THE CRYPTSY AND/OR COINBASE CASE, (B) IF YOUR CLAIM IN SUCH CASES WAS REJECTED, OR (C) YOU SUBMITTED A CLAIM IN THE CRYPTSY AND/OR COINBASE CASE THAT WAS PAID AND YOU HAVE SINCE DISCOVERED PROOF OF ADDITIONAL CRYPTSY HOLDINGS FOR WHICH YOU HAVE NOT YET MADE A CLAIM, YOU MUST MAIL OR SUBMIT ONLINE YOUR COMPLETED AND SIGNED PROOF OF CLAIM FORM, ACCOMPANIED BY COPIES OF THE DOCUMENTS REQUESTED HEREIN, NO LATER THAN January 12, 2022, ADDRESSED AS FOLLOWS:
