Gox goes bankrupt, any assets deposited there are probably just gone. A document online that is supposed to be a contingency plan for Mt. Gox indicates that the company had just $32.75 million in assets to cover $174 million in liabilities. While both of those figures are probably a lot smaller now that the price of Bitcoins has dropped, the gap between them remains.
