So I've been following this whole mtGox thing pretty closely, and also been getting e-mails from tradehill non-stop!

Then I read the facial recognition article about the mtGox video and find out that it was most likely their wallet that was compromised and you have to think..

If you compromised the main exchange, why not just steal everyones bitcoin?

Basically, what if the tradehill guys where behind the mtgox hack and have now used it as a way to completely usurp the bitcoin exchange and trading market and all the fees, etc in the process..

Cool. Thanks for clarifying that. I understand, it's out of the realm of possibility. I mean, noone has ever done anything crafty to control a potentially multi-million dollar industry... **cough forbes, **cough kennedy, **cough rockefeller, **cough edison
