Bitcoin-Heist may be a Lie

Hacker haben diverse Accounts des CEOs von Mt.Gox geknackt und behauptet, der angebliche Hack der Bitcoin-Exchange sei ein Betrugsversuch und CEO Mark Karpeles säße nach wie vor auf knapp 1 Mio. Bitcoins. Es bleibt… spannend, sort of: Hackers Hit Mt. Gox Exchange's CEO, Claim To Publish Evidence Of Fraud.

On Sunday, hackers took over the Reddit account and personal blog of Mark Karpeles, Mt. Gox’s CEO, to post an angry screed alleging that the exchange he ran had actually kept at least some of the bitcoins that the company had said were stolen from users. […]

In the hackers’ summary of Mt. Gox’s balances in various currencies, they point to a claimed balance of 951,116 bitcoins, which they take as evidence that Mark Karpeles’ claim to have lost users’ digital currency to hackers is fraudulent. “That fat fuck has been lying!!” a note in the file reads.
