Holy... whatever!

This is still going?!  Shocked

And now with names... what next? Let's open a Wikipedia page? Can we have a pic of MtGox's former and present CEO for that Wiki article?

This isn't peanuts, this is $45000. And it's still locked, as I hear, and people are going to court. This is around the total USD transaction volume of MtGox (and maybe BTC in general) for around a week? Or more? I'm not sure, but it's a lot. All this talk about "scammers", "thiefs", "security vulnerabilities" etc may be affecting BTC in general, and even BTC price in the market. You don't trust a brand new currency/stock/whatever when you are feeling insecure about it.

I hope this issue is resolved ASAP and everybody gets their money back, even if they don't make the profit they expected.

@prcarter,

That's what I'd been trying to tell since the beginning of my intervention here. Already enough to got misunderstood and confused by a Baron's clone.
This whole mess is hitting BTC hard, rates just keep dropping, and again... all thanks to Jed finding play CSI as his new hobby...

Baron should be able to prove he deposited money into his lr account at least.

He could even take screenshots... Cheesy

Liberty Reserve has an SSL certificate by VeriSign Inc. ("Class 3 Extended Validation" it says, issued in February, for 2 years). I think VeriSign certificates cost quite a bit, and VeriSign is pretty reputable (used by banks). In the VeriSign website, they say they give "warranties" of more then $100,000 . I.e., if you can present a false certificate issued by VeriSign then, congratulations, you win $100,000.

These "certificate authorities" simply vouch that "you are talking to the real Liberty Reserve" or "you are talking to the real mtgox.com" (or to whoever has mtgox's server's private key). It's still up to you to decide who to trust. My idea was that maybe this could be used to prove ["prove" or at least "show", with a relative degree of certainty... measured in dollars perhaps?] that this particular communication was really between mtgox.com and baron, for instance. In the absence of anything else (like a PGP-signed email), this could work as an on-line "statement" or a "receipt".

If the website says "your balance is this", in a way that any human could understand, then that's an obvious statement, isn't it?

I still haven't looked into the technical details of this. It will probably require special software in the client. Passwords would be included in this conversation, so, after recording, the client would have to change the password (and record the password-changing conversation too? he wouldn't show that last one, of course). If the website in question, at some corner, shows the current date/time, that is good (a statement that "this is the time now").

It's probably too late for all that now. Baron should had thought of this earlier. MtGox and friends can say whatever they want now.

And where are those $3000 LR transactions from Baron to the alleged thief?

For me it sounds like that someone tries to discredit mtGox/Bitcoin.

Guys keep in mind, that a new currency will face a lot of trouble from the establishment.

This could be:
1) Direct attacks like DDos or Hacks.
2) Manipulative/Speculative trades to de-stabilize the market.
3) Spreading wrong information like forum posts and news/blog articles.
4) Inner problems like greed of the participants.
5) Legal attacks.

I wouldn't spend too much attention to those attempts.

Bitcoin has strong base principles and mechanics - by far more stable than any fiat currency like USD, EUR etc in the world.

This gives it the potential for a great future.
