Do we know when the site went down?  If the timing is close, then this may just be the case.  Though, if it were the case, it'd be prudent of them to say that those with coins there havent' lost anything

I looked up "whelp" (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=whelp).

None of the definitions seem to make sense in this context. ("A hot young 20 something guy who prefers having sex, dating, or marrying older women.")

In EvE Online if you "whelp" your ship/fleet it means you died/lost in a horrible embarrassing manner.

Hopefully people keep their bitcoins in a cold wallet, not on some exchange.   I mean, srsly?

If it was safe in the first place, there would be no reason to move funds to some "emergency address", though. Maybe it wasn't that cold, only cool.

well now you have a simple question to ask them. Do they or do they not control private key to that BTC address?

The second question I suppose would be if it is in instawallet and in google yet.


Yeah, they might've used instawallet for the "cold" wallet of bitcoin-central.... lol.

If you want to trade on that exchange you kind-of have to, no?

Uhoh, says that was 42,000 coins transferred from the cold wallet right? Shouldn't it be 42k transferred to the cold wallet instead of other way around.

those two big withdrawals are still "unconfirmed," for a few hours already. If this was a theft, the BC/instawallet guys should quickly try to doublespend with big fees.

i hope they tried to double spend it with huge fees...

The cost of mediation increases transaction costs, limiting the
minimum practical transaction size and cutting off the possibility for small casual transactions
