Yes, Cracker.  It means  "Criminal hacker", or someone who "Cracks" security to do bad things.

The primary purpose of the term is to distinguish criminal from non-criminal hackers - by people who are absolutely sick of having everyone assuming "Hacker == Crook" as the common media encourages them to.

Forget your racist crap, guys, we are all colorless on the Internet.  None of us has any clue what color any of the others are, and that is a *GOOD* thing.  Use online vocabulary instead, and you get the right meaning.

If the OP wants to dumb down the thread title so that people who don't know this very basic vocabulary can get his original meaning, maybe he should use the word "crook" instead.

If Mark was knowingly running a fractional reserve since 2011, then I think this is clear-cut fraud with jail time involved.  If Mark was not aware of the theft, then it is just incompetence/negligence.  He would have an incentive to inject as much confusion as possible. 

+1 - this Karp is bozo, but is still better than 90% of those Wall Street types...

Running stolen coins through an exchange for fiat would be suicidal, thief would get busted quickly.
So if a "cracker" really has 850K bitcoins (highly unlikely really), the question is "WHAT WILL HE SPEND IT ON"?

Answer:  a bunch of stuff from every site on the net that accepts bitcoin. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see "people" overstocking from overstock.com... actually good for the bitcoin economy in a way...

Manipulate the hell out of the market: just think about it, you don't even need to touch those coins, just buy shorts and sign some terror message!  Embarrassed

Its not hard to manipulate a market with a fraction of those coins. They can move markets and take out profits on a small number of those coins.

A few suggestions:
 - Private Jet (I suggest a tricked out G650 or a private 787 for longer distances)
 - Private Island preferably with a runway with full ILS capabilities.
 - Nice car(s)
 - Maids and butlers

It's not hard to spend lots of money....

Hoverer, the cracker still suffer from the same market mechanisms as your standard whale. If he floods the market with 850 k he will in effect kill the golden goose, making all his coins worth zero. Unless he wants to destroy bitcoin what would be the point of that?


What is the liquidity of all the current markets?

That is how much his short term profits are... And that might be sufficient for one person to live nicely for a while...

as you say. for a while. and perhaps maybe even longer. but does he would be really happy in his life?

Take a look at Richard Brandson .... does he look "unhappy".

But yes you're right money can enable happiness but it is no guarantee.

How?

Do you know a:
- Bitcoin vendor selling planes?
- Bitcoin vendor selling islands?
- OK yes, you can buy cars
- Maids and Butlers (not professions known for their technical knowhow, although I stand to be corrected) who will accept Bitcoin as a weekly wage?

Bitcoin is not money until (a) you convert it to fiat - as pointed out this would fuck the markets in a major way, making the guy's BTC worth way less or (b) you find someone willing to take it from you for something nice.

We'd all like the things above, but these particular bitcoins won't be buying them.

All this talk of this destroying the Bitcoin market are absurd.

This isn't the first huge bitcoin hack and it probably won't be the last.

Nobody is going to try and dump that many coins in one go. They would drain them out slowly to ensure maximum long term profit.

If I were the hacker I would probably sit on them for a long time and probably only start selling OTC to stay under the exchanges radar for a while. Probably reach out to people who expressed an interest of buying a large chunk OTC under market price. It would take a while to get even a million out but given time that could be accelerated as the trading volume picks up and the number of exchanges increases.

Nobody with a large holding of bitcoin is stupid enough to crash the bitcoin market. It's that simple.

I like luxury when I fly, no single propellor shit, I like to lie down or have my martini shaken not stirred Cool

This site says it all
http://www.endeavorglobalgroup.com/

The have off-market Gulfstreams and Boeings private islands and yachts for sale, with bitcoin. Cheesy

I would recommend the G650 which has a good range and luxury and can land on any short runway. Cool

If what Mt.Gox claims is true this is biggest hack ever. The only thing comparable with the SR sized coins (150k).

Do you think a person who have such economic power wouldn't use that to manipulate the market for years?? think again...

if they've got that many coins why manipulate the market and risk decreasing their value? The only gameplan worth playing is the one where you just withdraw bitcoins. Anything else is just totally illogical. With 750k coins there is no point in trying to play games with the market and manipulate it. Sure you can cause some flash crashes but then what? That just creates more instability and you've not gained anything.

Anything else is just pure fantasy.

Nope.

If I had stolen 750K in Bitcoins, at was primarily interested in cash, I would of course have a pressing urge to enjoy the immediate benefits of cash richness, but unless I was stupid, I wouldn't dump so much that I destroyed the market which is to be my cash cow for the next 20 years or whatever. Nope. I would definitely let it grow before cashing in my next pay cheque.

now one person with no moral values could destroy the economy at any moment.
I don't have morals applying to the harm of animals, but when people hurt plants I tell them to stop.
what.
The full explanation is complicated, if you are actually interested PM me, as it would derail the thread.

Short answer: I am the rottenest-Botanist.

Can't hold it back anymore. The real answer is, It's real bad honkey. Massa's gun' expand his plantation soon.

Fucking lost it. Hilarious.
