​The recent suspension of trading on Hong Kong based Bitcoin exchange Bitfinex following the apparent theft of approximately US$60m worth of bitcoins is the latest in a series of Bitcoin thefts.  With Bitcoin still in its relative infancy, some jurisdictions have taken steps to integrate Bitcoin into their financial regulatory system, while regulators in Hong Kong have not yet done so.  With Bitcoin increasingly having real-world impact on everyday citizens, the question of how Bitcoin regulation should be approached becomes increasingly pressing.
