" he has been released on a $100,000 bail. " Make you wonder who posted that bail? Would we ever know the truth about this whole thing, and will the people who lost money there, ever get a

cent back? What has happened with the list of people who filed claims against the recovered money? I might have missed something, because I did not follow the whole outcome of this whole affair.

If he jumps bail now, you will never see him again.  Roll Eyes

I'm pretty sure bail was paid with his stash of Gox coins he has somewhere. I wouldn't be surprised if we see some old coins move around. He would be stupid to try to convert it to fiat but he could use some old coins to pay for things at places that accept btc.

How sure is pretty sure?

Forgive my petulance and oft-times, I fear, ill-founded criticisms, and forgive me that I have, by this time, made your eyes and head ache with my long letter. But I cannot forgo hastily the pleasure and pride of thus conversing with you.

He has lawyers tho, right? Or Japanese public defenders?

What I mean is, he must have a legal fund. Someone must be footing the bill.
