After Arrest of Mt. Gox CEO, Former Colleague Ashley Barr Holds Reddit AMA

The arrest on Saturday of Mark Karpeles, the former CEO of failed Bitcoin exchange MtGox, did not come as a surprise to those familiar with the company’s catastrophic downfall. The eccentric entrepreneur is well known for tales of his financial and entrepreneurial blunders, many of which ultimately led to the implosion of the company and disappearance of more than $400 million in Bitcoin in early 2014.

I've read it since yesterday and what Ashley is telling there is quite shocking. I know most of us had the impression that Karpeles must have led the company with lots of incompetence. But getting that confirmed with all these inside stories really blowed my mind.
I appreciate what Ashley is doing now and maybe a few more former employees will follow him.
