There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

the american government has laws. if they don't like someone then they usually use those laws. it's less messy than stealing funds.

There have been whispers from the start that people within the U.S. government were involved in hacking Bitfinex. Some people say there is compelling circumstantial evidence.

Raphael was warned in 2013/2014 that his sloppy use of dollars in margin funding would lead to him being targeted by the United States.

 

So are you suggesting that the US, as a state actor, hacked BF for financial gain? I can see for loss of confidence in the protocol, but for 65 psaltry ass million United States dollars?

I'm intrigued, although I preliminarily disagree. And links to evidence? I'll even take biased sources.

For financial gain? Huh?

Read the initial post again and spend just a few minutes researching the hack.

Yep!

You gotta have a bunch of websites "under construction" in the wings. Then when you are hacked, you need to throw all the info up on the next one, and email all your clients regarding the change.

It's real work.

Probably some hacker who was interested only in the coins, to fund his next vacation. I don't think that the hacking was done by individuals with links to the government. Similar acts by the competitors can also be ruled out.

I was asking YOU for research leads, you proposed this idea on this forum. I'm not even being a smartass. nevermind, I'll go look it up myself , I'll Google government conspiracy + bitfinex. I could go directly to your sources, which I was lending credibility by asking you for them, as this is the first time I've heard of this.

You are reacting poorly to the financial motive, so I will persue the protocol disruption motive.

Sorry to be hesitant to speak bluntly. This hack falls in the "duh" category. Unfortunately it is the norm for people to have little education in history, so the same shit keeps happenening over and over.

Here are some links to help. I just looked on google and it is actually very difficult now to find the relevant stories there. Weird.

https://www.americanbanker.com/news/did-regulatory-meddling-cause-bitfinex-hack

http://www.coindesk.com/cftc-bitcoin-exchange-bitfinex-trading-violations/

I'm leaving out the best links in case anybody does research it. I do have more information than most people about this case.
