I'm morbidly curious about who will be the next person to jump ship from Bitcoinica and/or the Consultancy. I sure as shit wouldn't want to be left as the last man standing in the general partnership.
Hehe, good question. I'm not following all the threads about this clusterfuck, but didn't Donald just leave or something?
According to Amir, Patrick has "walked away". No-one has clarified what that means, though. Has he resigned as one of the general partners? Refused to take any further part in the claims process? Leaving Intersango? It seems as though Amir has often been kept out of the loop so he may not even have that information.
For shit and giggles, here are the two threads announcing the changeover in Bitcoinica management. One of them only got two replies and the other got ten. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=77975.msg867445#msg867445https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=77958.msg867160#msg867160
I am really suspicious of this. A week after it is announced that Bitcoinica is legally registered to do what it does (whatever that means), it goes under new direct management. Unless Zhou needs to focus more on his studies or there is some kind of plan to seriously compete against MtGox, this would suggest Bitcoinica is not as profitable as claimed. Of course losing 45,000 bitcoins would hurt anyone.
I am glad I followed my gut. I can see a train wreck coming. I have been on a few myself.
