By rolling the price back to it's prior value and not letting the free market decide upon the new value after this attack, Mtgox is essentially saying that they themselves are the de facto controller of the value of bitcoin. I don't use bitcoin because I wanted some regulatory agency to say how much my money was worth, I wanted the market itself to decide that.
mtgox should be shut down anyway for this absolute gross failure to uphold private data.
are you blind? do you see the other exchanges trading with values in relation of what they were at mtgox during the time of the security breach? the free market is all up in those other exchanges deciding the value post-hack, RIGHT NAU!
mtgox is an exchange. there are other exchanges that trade for USD, shit theres one locally in cincinnatti at the hackerspace. do you think he was trading for .01$/BTC? hm, maybe its due to the fact those prices were not legitimately set by the free market?
if the free market decided BTC's were worth .01$, im sure the next day they would be worth .00$. (though id still buy a few bucks worth for S's and G's)
mtgox got hacked. if you're sad cause you didnt hit the "lottery", then you sir, are no better than the body(ies) that executed this attack.
my only issue with mtgox is their speed of recovery. id really like to get access to my <200USD i have in there. bitches should pay me intrest.
