Bitcoin Foundation founder Gavin Andresen: Mark Karpeles and Charlie Shrem a disgrace to the cryptocurrency industry

http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/bitcoin-foundation-founder-gavin-andresen-mark-karpeles-charlie-shrem-disgrace-cryptocurrency-1496583

Quote
The chief scientist of the Bitcoin Foundation and one of the organisation's founding members, Gavin Andresen, has spoken out about fellow founding members Charlie Shrem and Mark Karpeles, calling their actions "a huge black eye" to the foundation and the cryptocurrency industry.

Gavin Andresen formed the Bitcoin Foundation with Karpeles, Shrem, and three others in 2012 and it soon became the leading advocacy organisation for bitcoin.

In early 2014 Karpeles was forced to resign from the non-profit organisation after overseeing the collapse of the world's largest bitcoin exchange MtGox, which resulted in the loss of millions of dollars worth of customers' bitcoins.

At around the same time, Shrem was indicted on accusations of money laundering in relation to the online black marketplace Silk Road. He is currently serving a two year sentence after pleading guilty to the charges.

Speaking to IBTimes UK at DevCore London, Andresen revealed that the damage caused by the pair resulted in discussions with government regulators being terminated and many of the foundation's projects being cancelled.

Yep, both of them shiesters of varying degrees with Markypoo being in a league of his own in my opinion. I just hope he gets what's coming to him unless he magically reimburses all his customers in full plus punitive damages.  Either that, or make him the dishwasher at the prison he spends the next few decades of his life at.

I want to point out that nowhere in the article is Gavin quoted saying they they are a "disgrace to the crypto industry".

Charlie Shrem is an angel when compared to Mark Karpeles. How can we even compare Shrem to someone who single-handedly destroyed the growth and adaption of Bitcoin?

Looks to me like he knows his foundation is in trouble and tries to turn the the media attention to Karpeles and Shrem. The Foundation is not failing because of what these two did but because it's not being managed well. Karpeles didn't make you lose money for a year, your investments and enormous salaries did.

Did you post this after sucking Josh's cock?

How much did he pay you to be his shill?
