I could see Karpeles following the same pattern as OJ.

OJ was never convicted for murder but his bad
karma led him to more bad decisions and robbing
a store, and ended up in jail just the same.

Karpeles never got caught for the Gox theft
(even if you believe it wasn't theft, it was
at minimum criminal negligence)... but maybe
gets skewered for Silk Road.

In any case, the harm he did to investors
is probably far greater than what DPR did
in running Silk Road -- actually I think DPR
probably helped reduce drug violence.

And that my friends is called "reasonable doubt"! Looks like Ross might have a shot after all!

And this could easily explain the Mt. Gox lost coins. They couldn't get to them because the government had seized them, or at least a good portion anyway.

Maybe that was the "big news" that Adam guerbuez declared in one of his tweet (but I'm not sure). Will this news affect the price or not? What do you think ?

I don't see how the news alone would. But him selling the coins might .

Some people might have known this, before the price "collapse" and dumped a lot of coins.

Things are picking up again, so it was not a big train smash or the "Doom" or "Death" of Bitcoin as was predicted by the Shills / Trolls / ButtF$%'ers  Wink

Didn't expect that kind of a twist. I wonder if Karpeles is also behind the collapse of the Euro and farting most of world's greenhouse gas emissions  Grin

Good attempt by Ulbricht's lawyers, it might actually work out for their client.

I would personally doubt that any reasonable doubt comes from the allegation that Mark was DPR. I would personally say that it would be much more likely that he is found guilty and then evidence used against him is found to be inadmissible because of 4th amendment claims.

Wow...so nobody actually read the article?


The agent said that he had considered Mark Karpeles might be running Silk Road because it would be a good way to keep the Bitcoin price under control.


So, an agent has a theory a long time ago, backed up by his own opinion for a short amount of time.


The defense is trying to create reasonable doubt. That is like having a murder trial and asking "did you have any other suspects? Oh, you suspected the husband!?!...very interesting...."

"The trial of alleged Silk Road ringleader Ross Ulbricht took a surprising twist today when a witness from the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) apparently claimed that Mark Karpeles, former CEO of the embattled bitcoin exchange Mt Gox, was once suspected to be the black market's mastermind, Dread Pirate Roberts."

Source: http://www.coindesk.com/mt-gox-ceo-mark-karpeles-implicated-silk-road-trial/
---------------------------------------------------



What do you think guys ?




Was there any proof to the claim, or was it just a claim to get his money back from mtgox Tongue ?

This is what I was thinking.

Quote
The DHS witness, agent Jared DerYeghiayan, reportedly claimed that Mark Karpeles, former CEO of the embattled bitcoin exchange Mt Gox, was once suspected to be the online black market's mastermind, Dread Pirate Roberts.

Keyword suspected. His name just probably came up after a FBI brainstorming of possible DPR suspects.

Quote
Reporters from the courtroom took to Twitter to address his claims; two suggested that the defense team is building a case to argue Karpeles is actually the "real mastermind" behind the Silk Road.

Now that would be interesting. It could be possible that he was involved somehow or at least DPR talked with Kerpales before or during the creation of Silk Road.

To be fair, Mark was not "implicated" he was briefly "suspected" of being DPR. If you look at the evidence collected it is Ross who has some explaining to do.

Yes , now I've seen. A simple question : Do you think he  is the mind behind silkRoad ? Maybe he was in the "team" but not the "creator" ad "manager" of SR (That's for sure).

I really don't know? But to be honest I see no evidence of a connection. There is some very damming evidence against Ross though. I does, however, seem like the volume of sales at SR and the dominance of Gox as an exchange must have brought the two into some kind of contact. Maybe not criminal, but there was a lot of BTC being cashed out by SR. It does stink a little.

Me too , it is very strange. Maybe they have cooperated for "cashout" the bitcoin. We will see how the situation will evolve.
