    Mwu-ha-ha!

    Sorry, but I can only gloat on this! If the history can NOT teach anyone anything, then only the harsh reality can!

    BTW, I even know who performed this "hacking effort" - owners of Mt.Gox themselves.

    Brilliant stuff!
    Good to see that the likes of the Shadow Crew are still keeping their hand in, targeting easy marks like this! :)

    Been tryna find a way to harness CPU/GPU power to make some money but alas, nothing, yet. Coin mining seems like a waste of time tbh.

    It makes absolutely no sense that they haven't noticed the problem earlier in the few years its apparently happening. They MUST have notice a million here or there is missing. :3eyes:

    In my eyes this only leads to one conclusion: inside job. I think that Mark Karpeles is a very rich man now, if he wasn't already before.

    As long as people keep believing that bitcoins are valuable, they stole something. BUT WAIT! If we all agree they're the useless garbage imagination of fools who have created their own currency, it's not worth anything. There is no actual work behind bitcoin, it's worth nothing.

    ^^ Exactly.

    Try going to the Fed and asking to be given some gold in exchange for your 100 dollar bill!

    These are interesting times, sink or swim, I'm enjoying the development of bitcoin.

    You spew FUD!

    What am I going to do with all this crypto I have mined in less than a year? It is worthless.

    Also in regards to Mt. Gox, it is a Mt. Gox issue not a Bitcoin issue. Coinbase and other Bitcoin exchanges are doing fine.

    Coinbase BTC price= 533.00 USD

    Bitcoin does have something real, the burned fuel to make electricity consumed by the gpu's, asic's, etc. So once again money/greed add's entropy to the universe...

    But the guy filing for bankruptcy doesn't look as though he's on his uppers!
    Just looks as though he's bailed out with a whole load of other peoples' money in his pocket, and there's nothing they can do about it. :)
