Hi

The latest DDos attacks on Mtgox are:

A) To hurt them - by competitors
B) To hurt the Bitcoin community - by gov's
C) To raise Bitcoin price - by speculants
D) To drop Bitcoin price- by speculants

What do you think?


PS: please move this thread to the appropriate economic section.

Yeah, when I wrote the options, I forgot that there are people with too much free time.

Let's assume you are right, does this LOLZ guy has any BTC?

Doesn't it affect him? (Price-wise?)

Lulz*?  Tongue

I don't think the infamous LulzSec is behind this one, but I wouldn't put it out of the realm of possibility in the future.

Welp.
