I think Mt Gox got their customers coins and they want to blame hackers for this.

-------------------

Mt. Gox, once the world's biggest bitcoin exchange, filed for bankruptcy protection in Japan on Friday, saying it may have lost nearly half a billion dollars worth of the virtual coins due to hacking into its faulty computer system.

Gox did go bankrupt, and the total body count is 850,000 coins - 750,000 customer coins and 100,000 of the exchange's own. Here's Mark at the Tokyo District Court at a news conference:

There's more, though.  Also, there's a $27+ million discrepancy in Gox's bank account.

7% of all bitcoins in circulation are now owned by hackers, plus any previous thefts.

Mark is "very sorry" Smiley

French CEO Mark Karpeles bowed in contrition and apologised in Japanese at a news conference at the Tokyo District Court, blaming his firm's collapse on a "weakness in our system", but predicting that bitcoin would continue to grow

Mark you are the weakness!

I never thought my life could be. Anything but catastrophe. But suddenly I begin to see. A "BIT" of good luck for me. Cause I've got a golden ticket!
