Mark Karpeles confirms that “Crisis Strategy Draft” is “more or less” legitimate on IRC - Fox Business

http://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/2014/02/25/mt-gox-ceo-says-on-internet-chat-hasnt-given-up/
Confirmation:
In the IRC obtained by FOX Business, Karpeles denies the document was produced by Mt. Gox, but confirms that it is “more or less” legitimate.
More vague statements:
Karpeles says that any Bitcoin he personally owns was on Mt. Gox, meaning he will lose money if the exchange fails. In response to a question about how much he personally stands to lose, Karpeles writes, “well, technically speaking it's not 'lost' just yet, just temporarily unavailable.”

Mt. Gox is NOT SOLVENT

I am getting incredibly frustrated seeing Mark continuously post that Mt. Gox is now solvent and can pay back all of it's debts. He's trying to spin this as him being the good guy and trying really hard to "help" us get our money back.
Don't let a known scammer and thief spin this. He had bots manipulating the price of bitcoin on his exchange. He sent $3million from customer deposits into his own personal bank account. He fled France to avoid facing jail time for the computer fraud charges he was found guilty of. He manipulated Mt. Gox's databases before he filed bankruptcy.
Don't let him spin this. We lost bitcoin. Getting paid back in full would mean getting the CURRENT monetary value of our bitcoin back. Not $483 out of $3350 while u/magicaltux keeps the increase in value all to himself. If he wants to help, he'd return the money he took. Every time Mark posts some absurdity that he is able to pay everyone back in full, people need to continuously point out how obviously false this is.
Essentially, what Mark did is steal everyone's money for 3 years. Then he tries to return the value of everyone's assets at the price 3 years ago when he stole it. He's keeping the extra value for himself and trying to influence public opinion that he's a good guy and has earned everyone back their money. This is such bullsh*t it's absurd. We are only receiving a minor fraction of our money. No one should be falling for this good guy act or believe that we are being made whole.
Edit: I would like to see Mark acknowledge that returning $483 for every $3350 we would own if he didn't steal everything, is NOT being made whole again. It's less than 15% and he needs to stop saying how everyone is able to get all their money back.

Let me get this straight - Mark and his minions are not going to like this post

Mt.Gox was a custodian of its customers’ asset in either fiat currencies or in bitcoins. It entered the bankruptcy mainly because it had lost (as it so claimed) a significant amount of asset belonged to its customers. In order to fully apply the bankruptcy rules in Japan bitcoins were converted to Japanese Yen based on BTC exchange rate at the time picked by the court appointed trustee. This had to be done for the purpose of allowing all creditors of different asset types to agree on the final distribution of the company’s liquidated asset. In the unlikely event that all lost assets were found and recovered, the bankruptcy proceeding would end with all types of asset returned to their rightful owners in their original forms. Lately there have been online posts attempting to condition people with the idea that bitcoin creditors are only entitled to JPY50058.12 per bitcoin regardless of the actual outcome of the asset recovery. In other words, people should get ~$485 for each bitcoin they had in their Mt.Gox account even if all the lost coins are recovered next week, simply because these Mt.Gox customers had electronically consented to the BTC-JPY conversion rate set at the time when they filed their claims online. Equally absurd is the idea of “surplus” – because most bitcoin owners had filed claims online, therefore they are only entitled $485 for each bitcoin they kept at Mt.Gox despite the current per bitcoin price of over $4,000. The excessive amount after robbing the customers would result in a “surplus” that could turn the company solvent again. To these ridiculous false hope spreaders, we the creditors need to make our voice loud and clear – forget about “surplus” or “solvency”, they ain’t gonna happen, not before we recover all the lost coins. We should also fight and make sure any coins belong to MagicalTux are not part of the trustee’s approved claims as we shouldn’t shoulder his loss caused by his own negligence. Japan and Bitcoin will turn into long-term jokes if former Mt.Gox customers were to be robbed the 2nd time under the Japanese court system.

Liability of Mt. Gox employees? Mark Karpeles status?

Why aren't employees at Mt. Gox liable? I remember reading somewhere (I can't find it now) that some employees said that they knew u/magicaltux was using customer deposits for business expenses. If they knew this wouldn't they have had to report it? And for not reporting it aren't they complicit?
In addition, why is Mark Karpeles free again? How is he not in jail? There's a mountain of evidence of him using customer deposits for his own benefit, his illegal trading bots on the exchange, and in addition his excuse that transaction malleability caused the bitcoin theft is completely false. There have been studies that showed transaction malleability couldn't have resulted in a theft that large. Has he even released the internal logs to authorities yet? I know at the beginning there he wasn't releasing the addresses used, probably because he doesn't want people to be able to trace the coins. I don't understand how he is not in jail, considering he also has computer fraud charges against him during his time in France.

Proofs that Gox have at least 200k BTC - lost/corrupted keys most likely than simple theft

This is an IRC conversation on 2011 when people asked Mark Karpeles to prove if he owned the coins on his exchange.
Start of #mtgox buffer: Thu Jun 23 01:57:23 2011 * Now talking in #mtgox * Topic is 'Mt.Gox - Official channel - https://support.mtgox.com/entries/20208066-huge-bitcoin-sell-off-due-to-a-compromised-account-rollback - Official announcement in the next hours announcing time at which site will be back (at least 24h from announce). Recoveries will be processed during those 24h - Trading will resume 1h after site opening' * Set by MagicalTux on Wed Jun 22 16:28:08
go1dfish: I'll send 424242.42424242 bitcoins from a bunch of 50kBTC addresses (and maybe on 42kBTC) to one
well, two actually
one will get the 424k, the other one will get the change
ok, yeah all transactions get split that way as I understand it
ready guys? Don't come after me claiming we have no coins after that
hopefully I'll be able to work without getting too much disturbed after that~
yeah, ready
MagicalTux: wasn't your last tx 432K btc? lost 8k?

Current state of affairs

IMPORTANTE NOTE: THIS THREAD IS NO LONGER BEING UPDATED, PLEASE FOLLOW THIS ONE INSTEAD: http://www.reddit.com/mtgoxinsolvency/comments/21hrv8/current_state_of_affairs/ I explain the reason for the change here. Thanks!

LAST UPDATE: March 27th 2014 09:47 GMT +1

NOTE: I'm trying my best but because of the sheer volume of tidbits popping up every day, this post might ocasionally miss some updates. Please feel free to point it out in the comments whenever you feel there is information missing in the post, thanks!
A note on recovering funds: We have no information on how to recover fiat/bitcoins/goxcoins yet and MtGox has only given very vague statements so far. It is speculated Mark Karpeles (CEO of MtGox) is currently figuring out what to do and not flying to the Bahamas with our money. It is advisable to have patience and wait for new developments on the subject for the time being.
March 26th, 2014
Match 25th, 2014
A new rumor has surfaced twitter, currently unsubstantiated, from @CanarslanEren who according to his previous tweets would have previously either guessed correctly or know in advance about the recovered 200K BTC (emphasis mine):
Within a few days(or hours) @MtGox will announce that "they found ~670.000 #bitcoin & may release some BTCs to the victims. @PatronaPartners
https://twitter.com/CanarslanEren/status/448418452701974528
The community consensus at the moment seems to be of skepticism, as it always goes with this kind of rumors. See also:
March 21th, 2014
  • There's a new update on mtgox.com confirming the previous story of having recovered 200K BTC that were thought lost. Key points:
    • On March 7, 2014, MtGox Co., Ltd. confirmed that an oldn format wallet which was used prior to June 2011 held a balance of approximately 200,000 BTC (199,999.99 BTC)
    • For security reasons, the 200,000 BTC which were at first on the 7th moved to online wallets were moved between the 14 th and the 15th to offline wallets.
    • The bitcoins held today by MtGox Co., Ltd. amount to a total of approximately 202,000 BTC, including the above 200,000 BTC and the approximately 2,000 BTC which existed prior to the application for commencement of a civil rehabilitation proceeding.
March 20th, 2014
  • Several users were reporting issues with the balance-checking tool online at mtgox.com, namely that bank transfers and transactions stuck in progress were not showing. This is now apparently fixed and balances seem to have been accordingly updated. Thread here.
  • In line with the blockchain movements we've seen for the past few weeks and the respective MtGox API activity, finally a japanese news article appeared where MtGox lawyers announce MtGox has found and owns 200K BTC, translation, courtesy of h1d:
    Bitcoin exchange Mt.Gox which collapsed in February announced on 20th that they have found they're still in possession of the 200,000 BTC out of the 850,000 BTC that was reported to be lost.
    According to the lawyer, they found them on the 7th of this month by searching through a storage on the internet called a "wallet" which was being used by MtGox up until June 2011.
    MtGox has reported that they have lost almost all of the 850,000 BTC owned while filing for bankruptcy protection on February 28th.
    /bitcoin thread here.
March 18th, 2014
  • A new update on mtgox.com is now online: account holders can now provide their login authentication data on the site to retrieve the last status of their wallets for convenience. It would appear that this update is legimitate, Redditcoin states:
    I just called the MtGox call centre in Japan - they confirmed that the login has been put there by "legal" and they have not been hacked. I called this number from the original banckrupty announcement (I called from Australia - we are only 2 hours ahead): +81 3-4588-3922. A nice man with an American accent said that the login has been put there by "legal" for users to check their balances and that the website has not been hacked.
    Redditcoin asked for transaction history data as well:
    I called the number again (about an hour later) - again, absolutely no waiting - I called again to ask about my transaction history. The same man answered, with the American accent (although sounded Japanese), who spoke impeccable English. He said that the transaction history is still unavailable because the courts still have to "polish" it (whatever that means). I said I needed it for taxation purposes. He replied by saying he will "check on this, and post an update on the website soon".
    As for the balance data that can now be retrieved on mtgox.com, the site notes (emphasis mine):
    This balance confirmation service is provided on this site only for the convenience of all users. Please be aware that confirming the balance on this site does not constitute a filing of rehabilitation claims under the civil rehabilitation procedure and note that the balance amounts shown on this site should also not be considered an acknowledgment by MtGox Co., Ltd. of the amount of any rehabilitation claims of users. Rehabilitation claims under a civil rehabilitation procedure become confirmed from a filing which is followed by an investigation procedure. The method for filing claims will be published on this site as soon as we will be in situation to announce it.
  • The MtGox API which used to list pending transactions has been removed today. In the past few weeks, this API had shown that the hundreds of thousands of BTC moving in the blockchain connected with MtGox wallets could still belong to Gox. Thread.
Match 17th, 2014
March 16, 2014
An new unconfirmed, unverified IRC quote appeared on /bitcoin:
we are working on resuming service, can't say how soon it'll be
While the authenticity is still in question, if true this would be in line with all the rumors and hints we've seen up until now.
March 15, 2014
  • The hundreds of thousands of coins moving in the blockchain that MtGox allegedly still own have been spotted doing something new: the outputs are now merging in new addresses of 2K BTC each. This was first spotted in this thread and later confirmed here. As usual, we have zero indications of what this means yet. -Mahn speculates:
    The only thing I can imagine myself is that whoever is doing the splitting decided 50 BTC was too little or would take too long and switched to bigger outputs per address.
  • New movement in the MtGox order book as reported by their still online API has been detected. Thread.
  • Further discussion on bitcointalk revealed that the alleged personal customer information for sale by the recent MtGox data leak hackers is most likely fake. See also this thread.
March 14th, 2014
There's a new update on mtgox.com concerning their Chapter 15 US filing. It contains no new information other than the confirmation of the news that appeared on March 11th.
March 12th, 2014
  • MtGox US subsidiary assets have been temporarily frozen by US Judge. Story here.
  • Mark Karpeles declaration to the US Bankruptcy Court has been published online:
    "On February 7, 2014, all bitcoin withdrawals were halted by MtGox due to the theft or disappearance of hundreds of thousands of bitcoins owned by MtGox customers as well as MtGox itself. The cause of the theft or disappearance is the subject of intensive investigation by me and others -- as of the present time I believe it was caused or related to a defect or "bug" in the bitcoin software algorithm, which was exploited by one or more persons who had "hacked" the bitcoin network. On February 24, 2014, MtGox suspended all trading after internal investigations discovered a loss of 744,408 bitcoins presumably from this method of theft. These events caused among others MtGox to become insolvent and to file the Japan Proceeding."

MT.Gox proceeding to patch

MagicalTux commented 30 minutes ago Just to update this thread, it seems that this discussion is mostly stale now. We (at MtGox) will implement this new hash index in our transactions database and start working with it (we will announce a maintenance as we will have to stop bitcoin deposits too during the database schema update) and will start providing this new hash when customers are withdrawing bitcoins, litecoins, or any other coin based on Bitcoin we may support in the future.
We will also provide an API that will allow our customers to use this hash to retrieve the transaction hash as seen in the blockchain once the transaction is confirmed, and will hope others (blockchain.info?) will index this value one day.
We also invite other exchanges and businesses which may need to keep track of bitcoins they send to use this same method, since dealing with multiple variations of the same thing wouldn't be very productive.
If nobody does it, we will also post some test vectors for regular (in=>out) transactions in the near future.

An analysis of the state of ppc at the moment.

Disclaimer; Do not overly rely on the information below, a large part of this is speculation, and while I have done a bit of research I do not claim to be any kind of authority on PPC.
If you find any mistakes please inform me and I will attempt to fix them ASAP.
What ppc has going for it
  1. PPC is relatively fast compared to most other crypto currencies, and has a fixed transaction fee unlike other crypto currencies such as bitcoin.
  2. Is so far the only crypto coin built on the idea of proof of stake(yet).
    [Why should this matter?; In cryptocurrencies based of proof of work, things like confirmations(e.g; a lot of exchanges require 3 to ten confirmations before they accept your bitcoin) are done when blocks are mined, this is fine as long as blocks are being mined, but when an error occurs(like TRC yesterday) where a difficulty adjustment results in a large amount of the miners leaving, the currency grinds to a halt and no transactions can be completed. With proof of stake coins which have allready been mined carry out these functions, so ppcoin can continue to function even in the absence of miners.]
  3. Energy Efficency; This leads to Peer to Peer Coin's third advantage, not being dependent of miners like other crypto currencies PPcoin is free to be energy efficient.
    Explanation; Bitcoin miners are buying bigger and bigger machines and using more and more electricity to generate Bitcoins, while not too much of a problem on this scale if Bitcoin ever becomes as big and as accepted a means of payment as credit cards or paypal the amount of power being consumed globally would be staggering, and very very inefficient(as all this is being wasted aside from the generation of Bitcoins.) PPC however adjusts difficulty geometrically as the popularity of PPC grows. So in such a scenario while the value of PPcoin might be astronomical, difficulty would scale so that it would be financially unprofitable for too many people to be mining. And thanks to proof of stake PPcoin would continue to function in such a situation.
  4. Growing acceptability; PPC is being adopted by bigger exchanges such as BTC-e on the fifth of april, as well as hints of ppc at mtgox. Additionally PPC now has the third hightest Market Capitalization
Summary; PPC is fast, reliable, resistant to scenario's which cripple other altcoins, and is designed for the long term, and seems to be slowly growing in acceptability.
What is going against PPC
  1. While it has potential very few places currently exist which accept PPcoin. Bitcoin is now becoming accepted in several "real" shops, while litecoin now has it's own silkroad in the form of Atlantis. PPC unfortunately(like many of the other altcurrencys) does not yet have any such marketplace, and its only current use is the purchase of bitcoins.
  2. PPC's value is currently fluctuating heavily, Vircurex's server issues right before BTC-e's implemetaion of PPC resulted in PPC experiencing its first major bubble in its first few hours unlike most other altcurrencys first few weeks.*
    *[mostly speculation; This might be as people knew that the supply of ppc would rise as soon as Vircurex came online, and were determined to sell before this lowered the value of ppc. Combined with people focusing on TRC as it was added to BTC-e first, and being suprised when due to the miner issue PPC reached the market first, and overbidding in their haste.]
  3. A more temporary issue; PPC might soon be flooded as Vircurex comes back online, and if people panic and flood the market with this additional supply. HOWEVER given that the current price of PPC is currently equal or below the level of ppc prices before Vircurex closed, and additional currencies are in Vircurex the price of ppc might not actually fall all too much as people might refuse to sell at a loss.
Conclusion; While PPC is designed to be used on a wide scale, and seems to be growing in acceptability, it doesn't yet have enough services, and is facing a risk of collapse. So if PPC survives its current difficulties it should grow to equal and eventually exceed litecoins, but only if it manages to weather it's current pricing issues.
edit; so if you want to help PPC succeed, please build services which accept ppc.
edit 2; Issue three has passed. Hooray.

Jon from WickedFire & His Conversation with Mt.Gox CEO Mark Karpeles

From Jon admin of Wickedfire - My full unedited conversation with Mark... -excuse the formatting- looks good here until you post it..then it scrambles all the text eggs. Here is the original source which is easier to read. http://www.wickedfire.com/shooting-shit/179038-my-conversation-mark-karpeles-mtgox.html
I removed the channel name and my IP info along with the person who created the channel that does not want to be on record for this.
This conversation took place on 02-25-2014 at 10:39am EST.
[10:39] == JonWickedFire [IP REDACTED] has joined CHANNELNAME [10:40] == mode/CHANNELNAME [10:47] == MagicalTux [[email protected]/staff/MagicalTux] has joined CHANNELNAME [10:48] Hey Mark. [10:48] Thanks for coming in.. I know you're a bit.. shaken up and stressed.. [10:51] hi [10:51] Are you doing okay? [10:52] more or less [10:52] it's 1am and tomorrow morning first time I have a lawyer appointment [10:52] things couldn't be better [10:52] (well, not tomorrow but today, now) [10:53] Yeah, you're in the future over there in Japan, lol. [10:53] guys in NZ are even more in the future [10:54] Yeah two places I've wanted to visit but cringe at the flight time alone. [10:55] So I just wanted to talk to you on here, no pressure, you don't have to answer anything you don't want to. I'm not a journalist. [10:55] We've chatted before briefly. So you know a lil something on me. [10:56] yep [10:56] And with all of what happened yesterday, even though I knew all of that, I didn't let me contacts at FOX Business publish it, because I didn't want to see bitcoin or gox going up in flames if it could be salvaged. [10:57] Obviously holding that info back and not publishing a tumblr or leaking docs first allowed someone else to stake a claim on it first. [10:58] But you win some you lose some.. and honestly, I'm not a fan of people posting things that are rumors or bullshit or not verified just because it damages the shit out of someone or a company... and it really cannot be taken back afterwards. [10:58] Is that Crisis Strategy Draft even legit? [11:04] more or less [11:05] as the name suggests it's a draft, and it's a bunch of proposals to deal with the issue at hand, not things that are actually planned and/or done [11:06] this said this document was not produced by MtGox [11:07] I saw some strategies in there that I had shared with you, but also saw some things in there that I would have never suggested anyone ever go through with as it would make you look horrible.. [11:07] I think a lot of people ignored the draft part. [11:08] It was just really surprising to see that being "leaked".. [11:10] Do you think it was leaked by someone purposely to hurt you personally or gox in general? [11:13] [01:09:51] Do you think it was leaked by someone purposely to hurt you personally or gox in general? <- I have some doubts [11:14] Heh, I bet. [11:17] Are you stepping down as CEO and away from gox too? [11:17] (If you can't legally disclose, then just say so) [11:20] can't disclose that yety [11:20] yet [11:20] K np. [11:22] The reason I'm asking is because after yesterday's events of you removing yourself from the foundation and deleting the Twitter account/posts and all.. right away speculation within the bitcoin arena went into hyper chaotic mode, and the word on the street was that you were closing up shop and running away with all of their monies and bitcoin... [11:22] How does that make you feel to hear or see people you bailed out yourself and stood up for over the years, turn on you like that? [11:22] not good [11:24] Mark, I know you're not one for expressing yourself, but here's your chance at it, because you really have stepped up before, and done things NO ONE else ever had.. or probably will again.. and it seems like all of it has been quickly forgotten and instead you're being labeled as the Madoff of bitcoin. [11:25] We're having this chat, and you're still in Japan at your apt/office and not in a cave somewhere, right? [11:34] Look Mark, you took mtgox and ran with it, built on it, stuck with it and took it to a level no one ever thought possible. When other exchanges were crippled, you stepped in and bailed them out or absorbed them to save the bitcoin market in general. In exchange it brought you a massive surge of customers and press that made you look like the hero of the day and then some. [11:34] But what most people forget too was that you weren't set up to handle this from the start.. [11:35] [01:25:02] We're having this chat, and you're still in Japan at your apt/office and not in a cave somewhere, right? <- at home, with my cat being a pain sleeping on the keyboard [11:35] Yeah, doesn't sound like someone on the run with bags of money... [11:37] What's the plan now for you and mtgox? [11:37] can't comment on that yet [11:37] Alright. [11:37] (mostly because doing so could compromise our current efforts) [11:38] imgur: the simple image sharer <- my cat pushing my keyboard, me pushing the keyboard back on the desk [11:38] So you guys are still actively trying to save it though? [11:38] We haven't given up [11:40] You could have given up and walked away a bunch of times previously, but you always stuck it out... even though others have closed up and walked away, why have you continued to fight and work at it and not give up? [11:41] "Giving up" is not part of how I usually do things [11:42] Do you want to tell your side of this a bit more? [11:43] Like what you've sacrificed or given up, personally? I have to imagine it's taken quite a toll on you. [11:43] well, first I would guess is my health [11:43] What do you mean? [11:44] took on more than 30kg since handling MtGox [11:44] (compensating for stress by eating) [11:47] I'm guessing stress from lack of sleep too, like now.. [11:48] heh [11:48] and drinking liters of coca cola [11:48] how american [11:48] (almost american, actually, since some people see coca cola as being non-american) [11:52] lol [11:54] anyway [11:54] I should try to get some sleep [11:55] already 2am [11:55] waking up in 4 hours [11:55] Err [11:55] One more thing.. [11:55] and starting to be tired of pushing my keyboard so it stays on the desk [11:56] Do you still believe in the viability of an unregulated digital currency like bitcoin tho? [11:57] difficult [11:57] tbqh the pressure we got from banks and governments makes things very hard [11:58] Do you think if it were regulated it would make it easier to work things out? [11:58] partially [11:58] How so? [11:59] well, first avoid being blocked by banks and governments around the world [11:59] if regulated, it means that as long as you follow the regulations you're fine [12:00] The biggest question people really have asked though is are you personally vested in mtgox with your own btc? [12:01] And whether or not you, like everyone else, have taken a personal hit and are in the same boat as they are in terms of taking a loss/hit from the recent events? [12:01] [02:00:59] And whether or not you, like everyone else, have taken a personal hit and are in the same boat as they are in terms of taking a loss/hit from the recent events? <- any BTC I own personally were on MtGox [12:02] How much did you lose yourself? [12:04] Well, technically speaking it's not "lost" just yet, just temporarily unavailable [12:05] == MagicalTux [[email protected]/staff/MagicalTux] [12:05] == realname : Mark Karpeles [12:05] == channels : CHANNELNAME [12:05] == server : calvino.freenode.net [Milan, IT] [12:05] == account : magicaltux [12:05] == End of WHOIS [12:05] Well, how much is unavail for you? [12:06] I'm not even sure [12:06] Guys on Reddit and WickedFire are running around posting screenshots of horror stories about how much bitcoin they have lost from this.. [12:06] didn't check my wallet before pushing the site offline [12:07] anyway [12:07] maybe I should go to sleep now [12:07] Anything else you'd like to say to everyone before all the pissed off people start going nuts, even more...? [12:09] not really [12:09] maybe just a link? something like that: Why do we fall? - 9GAG [12:09] well, we'll see how this one goes anyway [12:16] Well, I'd like to chat more, but I know you're pushing to go to sleep. [12:17] And so long as you are saying you're not disappearing from this.. that's okay. [12:17] I still think you should say something more to all these people or at least reveal how much you've taken a hit for, personally.. [12:17] It would show them that you are still on their side. [12:19] By the way, that whole removal from the foundation, did you decide to leave that before or after the chats with them to help save gox versus let it fail?
