While little information about Bitcoin exchanges is publicly available, an item posted on a website called Bitcoin Watch states that Mt. Gox's bank account is in Japan, and anecdotal evidence suggests many other exchanges operate outside of the US.

Mt. Gox's website does not list a phone number, representatives could not be reached via email.


It's getting ugly..and the Media sucks!!

Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

Japan is a baby state of USA since WW2

If the banks decide to freeze MtGox accounts it will cause the price of Bitcoin to plummet. We're all taking this risk

'The banks'?

And how would they achieve this miracle, exactly? Last I checked 'the banks' don't have any influence over Mt. Gox. Worst case scenario, btc gets frozen and another exchange takes its place. That is the beauty of a system that doesn't rely on central control. After a while, we won't even *need* exchanges.

So, less supply of BTC equals falling prices?

Making bitcoins illegal will cause their price in dollars to increase, because they will become more scarce.

Just with like with booze and other drugs.

Plus everybody already knew about those since forever.
