Mark Karpeles has dealt with a lot of criticism since the collapse of the Mt Gox Bitcoin exchange earlier this year – and the original creator of the Mt. Gox Bitcoin exchange, Jed McCaleb, is trying to make sure he is not lumped into the same category as Karpeles.

Why would he be? He coded and created a exchange site for Magic The Gathering cards, which had little to do with Karpeles' Gox..

McCaleb was the one who converted MtGox into a Bitcoin-exchange and started its operation. Only later did he sell it to Karpeles.

Ah ok. I stand corrected. I thought he was the dude who first created the card exchange.

Just because he converted it into a bitcoin exchange, doesn't mean he is responsible for the aftermath.

Yet the Dow rose from 66 to 11,497 - Warren Buffet

Jed McCaleb was a genuine and honest guy. The only mistake he made was the sale of Mt Gox to that fat french f###r called Mark Karpeles. And most of the Bitcoiners are capable of seeing the truth.
