Maybe is just a continuation of the limitations in United States against online gambling




If is something related to gambling and the warrant issuer feds from Maryland continue their war against online gambling the bad news might not be so severe in the way that it might not be worldwide (they have limited gambling related sites from usa but not from the rest of the world), so the damage to bitcoin might not be "global" with warrant requests all over the world like they requested from New Zealand to fight against K. Dotcom. Also fighting against gambling might not have the same popular backing as calling a war against bitcoin in order to fight terrorism, child abuse or some other things so might be quite impopular for them to just declare war on bitcoin. That is not reason enough for a total war against bitcoin and I hope for that reason we won't see requests to ban MtGox on Japan or continuation of seizures with other US exchanges.

No excuse? It's only been a month, and these things take time and can be very onerous.

Gox has had it hard lately -- Repeated DDOS, unfriendly business "partners" suing them for not giving up their customers, and now this...

I really hope the last two points (or indeed all of them) aren't related. That would be more than disappointing.



It hasn't really only been a month... it's been a few years so someone should have caught it. A multi million dollar company should be able to walk and chew gum at the same time. I doubt their lawyers are manning the Network Operations Center.

I was just saying that the recent news of the regulations should have caused someone over there to make sure they were compliant. Perhaps it does take longer than a month to get registered but I don't think so. It's a simple form that you fill out and submit online.

It is not improbable that a separate charge is lodged against Mark Karpeles and be extradited,  being single owner of Mutum Sigillum LLC, based in Delaware.

Isn't Mark attending bitcoin2013 ? It's located in the US, so that would be a good time to arrest him wouldn't it? Not that Japan wouldn't extradite him. But this sounds like a good opportunity to bring him to "justice" quickly.

I really really hope Mark never visits the US. But who knows.

It would be very foolish for Mark to attend said conference. But then again, the man is a FOOL.

The connection to online gambling makes sense, as the Feds have proven in the past that they will take down payment processers who enable it.

A few years ago, the Australian owner of a payment processor was arrested while he was in Vegas.

And there have been many other processors that have had their funds seized for getting anywhere near gambling.

Based on the warrant, the seizure seems to be solely caused by Gox's failure to register as a MSB.

I've said it before and i'm saying it again. Mark clearly doesn't have what it takes to run a company with the responsibility and size of Mt.Gox. He should sell it and retire for his own good.

Not sure. Thought it was just a failure to upload but there was no png created. I'm running manually.

Ah, bad data from Gox causing a crash.

It's not totally dead -- page loads before timing out about half the time, and the price has gone down to Last price:$113.15001, so someone's trading...

Who was it that said this would be a horrible time for DDoS?  Cheesy

This could get ugly. Fortunately if it does it'll be good for me  Grin

After all this time just watching the market and waiting, to finally be back in the game...

Unless nothing happens, as the last few DDOS.

Bitcoin has a talent for being dramatic when you expect nothing, and really boring when you think it will crash or go up.

(The time for DDOS was yesterday damnit! Would have had sub $100 coins!)

I don't know why everyone is hoping for a DDOS. That's only going to hurt Bitcoins reputation even more, so nobody will take it seriously anymore. It's gonna hurt Bitcoins value in the long run...
