Seems like somebody is selling a great deal of coins right now on your market MtGox, giving the rapid price decrease. A few robberies have occurred lately on Linode involving Slush's pool, The Faucet, Bitcoinica and others, so those great amounts of coins could be theirs.

So i'm asking you guys, please, for the community's best interest, provide some public info or investigate on the issue and give those people a chance to recover their money somehow. I know this could damage the profits you could make right now but you will get our appreciation in long term and keep having the great reputation you have.

The Bitcoin software, network, and concept is called "Bitcoin" with a capitalized "B". Bitcoin currency units are called "bitcoins" with a lowercase "b" -- this is often abbreviated BTC.

Bitcoin is information. We don't want to start policing that now, especially without direct proof. Nothing will kill bitcoin quicker.

So i'm asking you guys, please, for the community's best interest, provide some public info
Privacy policy.

or investigate on the issue and give those people a chance to recover their money somehow.
I'm pretty sure Mark will be on top of it. Has anyone called him yet?

Bad idea. Making the info public would spook the fish. Better to discretely monitor the suspicious transactions with meticulous accounting.
An investigation is almost certainly underway.

The same coins? Unlikely. And good luck withdrawing, there are limits for a good reason. It is simply scared users dumping and getting out. All the more coin for me! Buy!

We're not seeing any of the coins being sold being related even remotely to the ones stolen.

If they're smart enough to hack a linode management terminal, they're smart enough to mix their coins first and sell them much letter to avoid being noticed.

The coins are lost. People will just need to learn from this.

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

slush it's sleeping right now because he would surely give them a call and exchange some info on this. The coins could have been transferred on the exchange right away without even laundering

Actually, I'm talking to slush right now. And no, they couldn't, because we would know where they came from and where they went. As far as I can tell the stolen coins haven't been sold yet. Relax. It's just a mix of normal traffic (probably bitcoinica) and lots of scared bunnies hopping around.

BUT THEY HAVEN'T. Follow the blocks and stop creating FUD. You can damn well trace where all of it is.

As far as we can tell the Bitcoin sold on Mt.Gox are not stolen ones and there are few chance that these coins will be ever sold via our network/Mt.Gox

thanks for the fast response, i only hope you're right on that with all this strange activity lately and no data to back it up more than blockchain explorer. So i get that no one transferred an unusual amount of bitcoins to your exchange lately ?

Or to cause panic, epic CIA style. Seems to be working, according to how the market is behaving right now.

Right. So this thread has gone from straight up FUD to tin foil hatting.

Guys from SomethingAwful would do something like this and delete the wallets just for shits and giggles. Get over yourselves.

I haven't. I've also considered that it could be a large bank or consortium of banks.

Yep! It's fun to break out the tinfoil every once in a while!
