More Bad News From Mt.Gox: All the Bitcoin Money is Gone

By Adam Clark Estes on at

The Mt.Gox saga just gets sadder and sadder. Not only did the company file for bankruptcy, but Mt.Gox CEO Mike Karpele went on Japanese TV a few minutes ago and admitted that everybody's money is gone. Gone, gone, gone.

How much money? According to one translation of the press conference: "The 750,000 bitcoins we kept for users, (37,000 million yen), almost all gone." That's over £251 million worth of 'coin. At least Karpele apologised.

Welp, add it to the list, I guess.
