Subsequent April 27, 2007, the United States (US)Department of impartiality forced e-gold to execute some 10 to 20 million dollars value of e-gold (a small part of which was all the possessions of 1mdc which were held in e-gold), and is attempt to carry a case alongside e- gold. E-gold has dedicated to counter what its originator has affirmed to be groundless claim. 1mdc is now obsolete, however Pecunix, Gold Money, e-Bullion and other DGCs come out to have been unaltered, and possibly have gained market distribute as a result. (However, e-Bullion's principals are also the principals and operators of "The Bullion Exchange" which was one of the replace providers whose accounts were solid by the government's lawsuit.)
The condemnation and gold seizure by the honesty Department led to a run on e-gold, as a lot of account holders liquidated, the major being the court-ordered liquidation of Omnipay's entire gold stability. The fact that e-gold was capable to convince the court order to execute the gold and fill all the liquidation instructions of account holders is very strong proof that their supremacy system works.
