I miss this TL/DR thread of bitcoin.

For those who have been too busy watching the Olympics to keep up with bitcoin since February 6th:


Over the weekend Mt Gox halted BTC withdrawals, effectively cutting themselves off completely, which made their price fall below those of the other exchanges and also be irrelevant.

https://www.mtgox.com/press_release_20140207.html

On Monday they blamed their withdrawal problems on the malleability of bitcoin transaction ids and said they wouldn't give back their clients coins until the "bug" was fixed.

https://www.mtgox.com/press_release_20140210.html

It turns out that somebody is broadcasting duplicate transactions with different ids to the bitcoin network, either to be malicious or simply to correct transactions that do not conform to the most recent protocol rules.  Mt Gox appear to be the only people whose wallet software can't handle this.

http://beforeitsnews.com/eu/2014/02/the-embarrassing-fact-mtgox-left-out-of-their-press-release-their-bad-code-hygiene-was-the-direct-cause-of-problems-2550398.html

Meanwhile people are panicking, exchanges are halting withdrawals, random market orders are causing flash-crashes to $100/BTC.

You know... Tuesday.

The irony is these compliance costs (partially responsible for the losses) were lobbied for to keep competition out. Just the cost of maintaining a monopoly.

If anything comes of it it will need SA Reserve Bank approval. SA has a exchange controls more stringent than China.
