I woke up this morning and checked my phone to see the coindesk index (http://www.coindesk.com/price) up by 23%. From $354 to $435.
Not even a gradual climb, straight up 90 degrees.
Immediately I logged onto my laptop to look at the website.
It seems like this is an error as all the other exchanges that the index is based off of are still around the $355 mark.
Hovering over the information icon, it showed LakeBtc price as around $650, which I deemed as fake when actually visiting the LakeBtc site itself.
So this was obviously an error. What happened here? Accidental software bug? Or was this something more deliberate? manipulation? They got hacked?

deskcoin system also uses a computerized system that has a gap to be hacked, it could be this is the result of hacks hackers to disrupt the system coindesk, coindesk should have high-level security system, where the client account can be protected very well, even the system must be well protected ...  Cool

Dont worry guys it will be up again soon or later.

Corruption, embezzlement, fraud, these are all characteristics which exist everywhere.
It is regrettably the way human nature functions, whether we like it or not.
What successful economies do is keep it to a minimum. No one has ever eliminated any of that stuff.
