I don't have BTC or FIAT on MT. Gox, but amid of its problem, they decided to move into a HOTEL.

As for the pool, figure I'll make it more fun.

pirateat40 doesn't count?

The printing press heralded the end of the Dark Ages and made the Enlightenment possible, but it took another three centuries before any country managed to put freedom of the press beyond the reach of legislators.  So it may take a while before cryptocurrencies are free of the AML-NSA-KYC surveillance plague.

"Mt. Gox is now located on a floor of a Tokyo office tower that is home to a company offering virtual offices. The exchange and the company that owns it, Tibanne, have not responded to interview requests.

The situation surrounding Mt. Gox has led some investors to believe it is teetering on the edge of bankruptcy and that bitcoins on the exchange may become worthless." - pcworld.com

I advise everyone to stop trading on Mt.Gox, hope to withdraw your bitcoins, but don't buy any new ones on Mt.Gox, you'll be in for a huge loss..

Maybe it's time to reconsider their initial idea of trading magic: the gathering cards.

Check me out on YouTube? :')

LOL if true

The biggest LOL is how nobody cared when they operated out of Cerulean Tower previously.  While it's almost certainly true that Mark's moved there so he can get security to keep angry customers and nosy journalists away, this isn't a "new" business location for MtGox - it's one from which they previously operated.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

I think if it was truly security, they wouldn't have announced their new locale.
