Blockchain.info CEO Nic Cary: “Big News Dropping Tomorrow”
Eric Calouro | March 3, 2014    | 1 Comment
Nic Cary Exciting News Tweet

That price spike we saw earlier today? There’s probably a good reason for it. Blockchain.info CEO Nic Cary sent out an interesting tweet Monday afternoon with some informaiton to get the bitcoin community’s hearts pumping a little harder:

“This is going to be an exciting week,” he proclaimed. “Some big news dropping tomorrow”.

Are your palms sweating yet?

Of course, no indication on just what that good news is, but it’s most certainly a change of pace from these last few weeks. From bitcoin price drops to the horrifying news that Mt. Gox had lost millions in user funds (and subsequently filed for bankruptcy protection).

We’re not going to speculate, but we’d imagine of Cary considers it “big news”, then it most likely is. Also of interest: Cary @-mentioned both the Bloomberg and Market Makers (a TV program on Bloomberg) Twitter accounts.

What do you suspect is on the horizon?

Huh? I believe you are in wrong thread.
That's good topic you are talking about. Just start new thread. Don't hijack the others.
Actually, this is thread where armis is op.  Wink

Quote from: nwtrades on Today at 02:33:54 AM
Due to the news of rampant thefts at Bitcoin exchanges this past week (Mt. Gox, Poloniex, Flexcoin) it is becoming apparent that there's a dire need for some security standards in the Bitcoin community to ensure compliance and build client trust.  The media is jumping over every hack story that comes out and shouting that it's insecure.  You can't blame people for thinking this way, because at this point it's a legitimate fear.

There is no question that we need a standard process for third party security experts to be able to review exchange processes and software from top to bottom.  If you know of some sort of external security company that already does this, feel free to post.

Perhaps exchanges could be verified on a certain level of compliance and receive a letter or badge to post on their website for proof of audit.  Maybe someone like Andreas Antonopoulos would be interested to open this discussion further.

Items to address in audit:

- Source code, deployment and version control procedures
- Bitcoin software and protocol implementation
- Server platform (software versions, port scanning, server logging, brute force protections, DDOS protection, backups, redundancy, etc)
- Emergency shutdown and startup procedures
- Physical security (security cameras, electronic facility monitoring, alarm systems, swipe-cards, etc)
- Use of AML / KYC procedures and encrypted offsite storage of client documents
- Offsite cold storage (multiple locations) and use of keys, with logs of all activity
- Onsite hot wallet and use of keys
- Minimum of email verification or 2-Factor Authentication mandatory for withdrawals on all client accounts
- Options for clients to set a withdrawal limit on their account (similar to a bank)
- Alerts available for unusual activity on client accounts, with additional verification option (email or phone call) in case of sudden large withdrawals
- Staff background checks
- Staff fraud prevention training
- On-site restrictions for staff electronics and storage devices
- Restricted access areas for developers and system-critical staff
- Procedures for reporting illegal or suspicious activity to law enforcement

I will add to this as more feedback comes in.  PLEASE contribute!  This is a great community and the development of this ecosystem is happening and will continue happening thanks to you!

I agree with this but some points will be hard to get audit.
I can compare an exchange as gaming platform. Example playtech software who is an author of casino software. So such software company make the exchange software and exchange operators buy licence. Software is created in profesional software firm where they gurantee bug free and hack proof software. It could be also usefull of prevention/detection if exchange operator doing inside trade with virtual coins/fiat.

you are right, however whatever can get done should be done, whatever cannot be done immediately should be placed on the 'things to do' list so that it is addressed at some future stage.

until this whole Mt Gox matter is finally settled btc will fail to soar like it is designed to do.

Because it is expected the Company is currently investigating the cause of the problem, including the damage caused by hacking by a third party, then the problem is probably more than one, you need to investigate a huge deal in the past in order to find the cause there. Therefore, at this time, the cause of the problem is not possible to do also confirm the amount of deposits that are insufficient for the deposits and balances the total number of bit coin, let alone gone.
Since the discrepancy deposit balances and deposits balance and loss of bit coin above is discovered, it is determined that business operations of normal is difficult, the Company, our site (Japan time) in the middle of the day of the 25th month I stopped across the board access to.

To anyone concerned
Mark Karpeles
Representative Director
MtGox Co., Ltd.
2-11-5 Shibuya
Shibuya-ku, Tokyo

ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING AN APPLICATION FOR COMMENCEMENT OF A PROCEDURE OF CIVIL REHABILITATION

MtGox Co., Ltd. Made today an application for commencement of a procedure of civil rehabilitation (minji saisei) at the Tokyo District Court. This application was accepted on the same day. Further, MtGox Co., Ltd is under several orders issued by the Court:. a preservative order prohibiting it from paying its debts, transferring its assets or establishing security over its assets, an order establishing a comprehensive prohibition of forced attachment of its assets by its creditors and a supervisory order ordering supervision by a supervisory committee In Consequence, MtGox hereby informs you as FOLLOWS.
We first Express Our most sincere Regrets and Apologies for this situation and for Causing so much Inconvenience to all users and Our Other interested Parties. We Will Respect fully the Above Orders and Maintain Our assets with all the necessary care.

Financial situation, reasons and timeline leading to this application
. (1) As of now, the liabilities of MtGox Co, Ltd exceed its assets and its financial situation is as follows:

Total amount of assets    3,841,866,163
Total amount of current liabilities    6,501,119,371
.. (2) The increase of current liabilities may be linked to a loss of bitcoins and customer funds These are now investigated by an expert and all efforts are made to discover the truth This application was prompted by the following troubles:

At the start of February 2014, illegal access through the abuse of a bug in the bitcoin system Resulted in an Increase in incomplete bitcoin Transfer transactions and we Discovered That There WAS a Possibility That Bitcoins had Illicitly Been Moved through the abuse of this bug.
As a result of Our internal Investigation, we found a large That Amount of Bitcoins had Disappeared. Complete Although the extent IS not yet known, we found That Approximately 750,000 Bitcoins DEPOSITED by users and Approximately 100,000 Bitcoins Belonging to U.S. had Disappeared.
We Believe That There IS a high probability That Were THESE Bitcoins stolen as a result of an abuse of this bug and we Have Asked an Expert to look at the Possibility of a Criminal complaint and undertook proper Procedures.
On the same day (24th), we found out large Discrepancies Between the Amount of Cash Held in financial Institutions and the Amount DEPOSITED from Our users. The Amounts Are Still under Investigation and May Vary but They approximate JPY 2.8 billion.
We Are Investigating the Causes of Problems THESE. Since There Are probably a Variety of Causes INCLUDING Hacking by Third Parties, we need to Investigate a Huge Amount of Transaction Reports in order to ESTABLISH the Truth. As of this date, we can not confirm the exact Amount of missing deposit Funds and the Total Amount of Bitcoins Which Disappeared.
Once we discovered that bitcoins had disappeared and the discrepancies between cash funds and deposit balances, we judged that it would be difficult to continue our activities normally and we therefore closed our site at noon on the 25th (Japan time).

(3) Regarding the Filing of a complaint or report Damages, an Expert HAS Been mandated and Investigations Have started. We Will make all Efforts to Ensure That Crimes Are punished and Damages Recovered.
Further on we Will Cooperate fully with inquiries from Authorities and Investigations related to this matter, in Japan or overseas.

In order to increase repayments to our creditors, it is necessary to explore the possibility of having MtGox Co., Ltd. Continue its business. This is why the civil rehabilitation procedure has been chosen, Rebuilding MtGox Co., Ltd under the supervision of the Court in a Legally organized procedure while giving proper Explanations Will not BE for the Sole Benefit of the company but for the whole of That bitcoin Community.
All Efforts Will Now BE made ​​to restore the business and recover Damages to Repay Debts to Creditors. We Hope for the understanding and cooperation of all.

Hey did you guise know the the US TREASURY, is who failed to protect JFK?  Yes, the Treasury, is who run the Secret Service.  Said another way:  The Secret Service, runs the Treasury.

So, the BTC blockchain, is a treasury.

But, who are your monetary enforcers?

Myself, if I were "King BTC", I would have waited outside mtgox and demanded to know simply, "Why are you still accepting fiat deposits?" and I would not have a problem, giving a tittie twister, bearhug, or even noogies and headlock to him, yes I would also drink his coffee and dump the rest at his feet (not on him, I am not a savage).  I would then challenge him to indian wrestle, I would do some judo tosses all nice and safelike (Japan knows what I mean) just to throw the French nerd around a bit.  Not in a harmful way, but just to see him barf and cry a bit.  "WHERE ARE THE FUCKING COINS" I would ask him, perhaps dangling a loogie in his face.

"I can't say anything!  Don't you understand COPS?!  I can't talk, they said so!"

That would be his reply.  How weak, pathetic, soft...  And law abiding.

Well, Japan is a place of law, and yet, does that accomplish much?  In what way, does law, direct those, who protect a "treasure"?  Treasure = treasury.  So, you need people defending the BTC treasury, not all these MBA vultures who dream of being a billionaire before 30 or they're failures.  Also, note that when your King (like JFK) tried to adjust the treasury toward good-money, then the Treasury may just protect their King with a purposefully slack hand.  Which, they did.

Interesting times, I see very few real men.  Many metrosexual douchebags, but few men.

Mark will be sued for his personal wealth http://www.coindesk.com/mt-gox-lawsuit-target-mark-karpeles-personal-wealth/ if he spends the money now, nothing will be left for the lawsuit.

But, if he were locked up, he would be safe and wouldn't need a bodyguard. If his personal wealth would be seized, he wouldn't be able to spend anything.

Where did he get money for personal security...he' spending other people's cash?

Mark will be sued for his personal wealth http://www.coindesk.com/mt-gox-lawsuit-target-mark-karpeles-personal-wealth/ if he spends the money now, nothing will be left for the lawsuit.

But, if he were locked up, he would be safe and wouldn't need a bodyguard. If his personal wealth would be seized, he wouldn't be able to spend anything.


I agree that Mark's incarceration is the best solution for everyone, but even if you lock down his money all he need do is prove that the expenses are necessary to defend himself and it disappears.  Nevertheless, it is best that he and  all of the funds in his control be locked down.

The class action should seek that otherwise it is just waiting in line behind the reorganization effort.

pressure could also be brought to bear on the US Feds to lock down any US funds he may control


All of those outside efforts are good, however it is most important to know where the money is via the blockchain otherwise other exchanges could do the exact same thing.
