As we all know with the recent plausible evidence of Zhou Tong being the Bitcoinica hacker, we should recall the generosity of this theft compared to MyBitcoin.
Zhou Tong offered a 5,000 BTC refund of the 100,000+ BTC stolen. If we use 100,000 as optimistic estimate of the stolen coins, 5,000 easily amounts to 5%.
Looking back on MyBitcoin, they offered 49% of the total 154,406 stolen.
Whats the verdict? MyBitcoin was more generous than Zhou Tong.
Only if Zhou Tong promised to pay back 5%. He didn't just promise, he performed. Whereas Tom Williams only promised, paying back nothing except to Bruce Wagner his 25,000 BTC
. Big difference. (somebody please correct me if I'm in error)
