Quote
First of all, bitcoin doesn’t have a CEO. It’s a crypto-currency, not a company.

Quote
the “suicide” headlines on sites such as the New York Post, the Daily Mail, and Fox News are based on anonymously sourced reports in “local media.”

Quote
And even if she did commit suicide, how do we know it had anything to do with bitcoin’s troubles? We don’t.

Quote
And for the record, suicide is rarely the result of any single cause.

Even in the event that an attacker gains more than 50% of the network's computational power, only transactions sent by the attacker could be reversed or double-spent. The network would not be destroyed.

Well.. it actually all makes sense. First there was a fatal fault in Bitcoin, all bitcoins were hacked, Bitcoin company went bankrupt, and now Bitcoin CEO commited suicide.
We just need to inform people, that we are not going to run out of Bitcoin CEOs any time soon, as there are many other.

LOL. Wink
