Most likely, the police will not go public until they (a) identify the criminal, try to arrest him, and are ready to file charges; or (b) decide that they cannot solve the case, and archive it.

Think of how long it took for the FBI to come open on their investigation of Charlie Shrem and Ross Ulbricht.

Thanks OhShei8e!

This is an important effort for the entire cryptocurrency community. Without knowing what happened at MtGox, and without doing our best to have MtGox depositors reimbursed, trust in exchanges and cryptocurrency will be mild at best. If we want cryptocurrency to become ubiquitous, we, the early adopters, must protect it.

Please do not pass judgement until the truth is known. There is no good reason why Japanese authorities and the administrator shouldn't release the "Last Known Bitcoin Addresses" that held MtGox deposits. Same with FIAT.

We are in uncharted waters. There is no law or enforcement authority that can handle this like we can as a community. Any help is welcomed!

First of, I think that it's not a bad thing for MK to sell this domain. As he stated back in July:

Quote
“We are hoping, with the sale of Bitcoins.com, to provide some relief to the people impacted by the Mt. Gox bankruptcy and will be putting at least half of the sale amount toward that purpose.”
(1)

The fact that lead the auction to a halt was nothing but CoinLab – which agreed to support Mt. Gox’s bankruptcy plan – moved to prevent the sale back then (2)

Now, there's always the chance Coinlab has risen their objections on the sale, maybe primarily due to the fact they saw from the auction course that there's a significant amount to be acquired, secondly, because their objection lead to nothing useful to the people who lost their assets from the Mt. Gox. I foresee that the 200K btc plus some extra cash will make a lot of people STFU and don't force their hands towards either Tibbane or MK.

i totally disagree with you because since there is:

No police investigation results
No comments from Kobayashi about that


...and i have many more to tell you.

 Imagine what would happen if the court along with the police have found all the mising coins but the domain is sold....
Assets of the company would have gone away....

All the actions must take place AFTER final word of court and police investigation.



EDIT: the further reading link is part of the past... and we all know what happened....
What we need is news on what is happening NOW Smiley

From what I understand, the internet archive will remove anything when asked to do so, esp. if they think you're the siteadmin and wants them to remove cached versions of your site.

They are still figuring out how many bitcoins and dollar there are; they have hired some TI consultants to analyze the database and other files.  Then they have to figure out what clients can claim. (It need not be the final account balance; my guess is that it will be some other formula.)  Then clients will have to send forms specifying their claims; this step has been postponed to the next year.  Then they will have to validate the claims.  Meanwhile, they may have to auction the bitcoins.

There is an investigation going on by the Japanese police about a certan amount of bitcoins that the liquidator thinks are missing.  It may not be all the 600'000; IIRC it was some particular 20'000 or so.  Do no expect any more details or information about that until the investigation is complete; that is normal in criminal investigations.

Then there is Sunlot, lobbying hard behind the scenes to stop the liquidation, call off the police investigation, and take possession of the 200'000 remaining bitcoins, "for the good of the clients".

I gather that there are some help sites and client groups, but it is not clear whether they are really trying to inform and help clients, or are trying to obfuscate and convince them to accept the plans of Sunlot or other sharks.  Beware.

You had your coins stolen.  You should count them as gone.  If the liquidation is not derailed, one day you will get back about 20% of what you lost.  Then you should count that as a lucky windfall.   Unfortunately, that is how it works when companies go bankrupt.

I'm not sure why you believe liquidation is the only possible worthwhile outcome to the Mt Gox affair. There is nothing wrong with the concept of a negotiated out-of-court settlement of the bankruptcy. It could even result in an early release of most, if not all, of the depositors' bitcoins.
 
It seems that you are trying to warn people away from self help groups, and implying that anyone who joins one of these will fall into the clutches of Sunlot or their ilk. People will only stand so much frustration, and can't be blamed for trying to look out for what they see as their best interests. That's not the same thing as being used as a pawn in someone else's game--merely life.

Jeffrey Robinson has a new Amazon Kindle book out entitled: The Naked Truth About Bitcoin
http://www.amazon.com/BitCon-Naked-Truth-About-Bitcoin-ebook/dp/B00NUIUQ3A/r
According to a recent review of the book:
Quote
Robinson's aim is to make a connection between Mt Gox collapsing and the abrupt end of China's bitcoin fever, the latter having driven the price up to $1240, until Beijing cracked down and the price crashed. Around the same time (coincidentally) Mt Gox collapsed; Robinson's terrier-like financial crime super-sense is on high alert. http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/bitcon-naked-truth-about-bitcoin-jeffrey-robinsons-teardown-worlds-biggest-cryptocurrency-1470477
If Jeffrey Robinson is correct about Chinese involvement in the Mt. Gox collapse, then depositors may have become pawns in a sub rosa diplomatic "blame game." That's only one more possible reason why they should be as assertive as possible in representing their own interests.

I am merely warning people to be wary.  Not everyone who claims to be your friend is really your friend.  Scammers, almost by defintion, are pretty good at convincing people that they are honest.  Bitcoiners should have learned that by now.

Out-of-court settlement will not make the missing bitcoins appear, so the former clients will not get more than 20% of their losses, in any case.  Judicial liquidation may take another year or more, but it WILL return most of the remaining assets to the clients.  The liquidation court has powers that a Sunlot-like takeover will not have, such as seizing the assets of former management and eventual accomplices, subpoena documents and bank histories, etc..  Moreover, it can be expected to do so.  In contrast, Sunlot has already "pardoned" McCaleb and Gay-Bouchery, and will let them keep what they got from MtGOX.  AFAIK, Sunlot never said what they will do about Mark. 

I could just say "heck, it is your money, if you want to give it to Sunlot, your problem."  Except that it is not in anyone's interest to let crooks who stole 500 million dollars walk away free and carrying all the loot with them.   The world will be even less safe than it is, if those bandits are not caught and sent to jail.  Unfortunately, to me, that will be the likely outcome of a Sunlot takeover.

Fair enough, one should be careful, yet that doesn't mean remaining patient through an untenable situation. There is such a thing as the time value of money. Money in the short term is worth more than money promised at some future date. Many people would probably trade-off having the authorities prosecute every supposed Mt. Gox bad guy to the nth degree in exchange for having their bitcoins back in some near-term fashion.
Out-of-court settlement will not make the missing bitcoins appear, so the former clients will not get more than 20% of their losses, in any case.  
What evidence do you have that there were ever more than the 200,000 bitcoins found in the "old-format wallet"? Earlier in the year, these bitcoins were worth in excess of $100 million. That's a very large cash hoard for a 3 year old company run by a 28 year old. It stretches credulity to believe Mt. Gox actually controlled $500 million in bitcoins that have been claimed. Nobody has demonstrated that those coins totalling to the larger sum ever even existed. More than likely, it is just another wild claim.
Judicial liquidation may take another year or more, but it WILL return most of the remaining assets to the clients.  The liquidation court has powers that a Sunlot-like takeover will not have, such as seizing the assets of former management and eventual accomplices, subpoena documents and bank histories, etc..  Moreover, it can be expected to do so.  In contrast, Sunlot has already "pardoned" McCaleb and Gay-Bouchery, and will let them keep what they got from MtGOX.  AFAIK, Sunlot never said what they will do about Mark.

I don't see what the Sunlot takeover has to do with an out-or-court settlement. When depositors and creditors work out a settlement, it could return all of the depositors' bitcoins from the 200,000 BTC stash, and there would be no need to convert to Japanese Yen. This is something completely different than Sunlot. While representing a compromise of interests, it would be a good one--essentially a win-win for everyone. Proceeding with the liquidation seems more like "delay-delay" and "lose-lose". Out-of-court settlements when they can be obtained are generally far superior in outcome to proceeding on with a bankruptcy liquidation. It will require creditors and depositors to come to some kind of agreement based upon mutual interests.
