This newspaper says one whistle-blower claims that they have taken 130,000 Bitcoins belonging to users.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/news/11482252/Creators-of-drug-dealing-website-flee-with-22.5m.html

This journalist got the names all wrong. The whistle blower is NSWGreat, but the person with information on Verto and Kimble is DeepThroat. I followed the reddit thread today and DeepThroat said he isn't going to reveal anything and has "given up" because he lost patience with "idiotic posts"  Undecided

This issue is the single biggest threat to bit coin. People don't lose faith over chinese banks and potential regulations. They lose faith when their currency is stolen.

You mean like people stopped using dollars after Bernie Madoff's scam was revealed?

All Bitcoin being stolen means is it's worth enough to make stealing it worthwhile.  Stupid people will continue to get swindled.  Smart people will protect their money.

This has nothing to do with smart or dumb, EVO just took off, after being the most succesfull dark market. Very smart people lost money too Wink. But DARK markets can't make people lose faith in Bitcoin, when legitame business start scamming them, or your wallet is empty when you open it, THAT will make people lose faith in bitcoin.

We dont know if the bulk was in escrow or not. Remember the escrow was a complicated unique process for that site from what I read
