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IMPORTANTE NOTE: THIS THREAD IS NO LONGER BEING UPDATED, PLEASE FOLLOW THIS ONE INSTEAD: http://www.reddit.com/mtgoxinsolvency/comments/21hrv8/current_state_of_affairs/ I explain the reason for the change here.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

/u/magicaltux, would you share some light on raidcoin.com?

Hey magicaltux,
seing that you stop over here from time to time, I wanted to ask you what raidcoin.com was. This URL was registered by you. It contained a paper wallet generator. People in Reddit, talked about it a while ago.
Could you tell us what the idea of that site was? Did you create it?

[Unconfirmed] MtGox 2014 data leak

EDIT 2: THE TIBANNEBACKOFFICE.EXE EXECUTABLE FILE IS WALLET STEALING MALWARE, so don't run that: http://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/200k30/the_tibannebackofficeexe_executable_is_wallet/. The rest of the data in the leak appears to be legitimate.
Edit: It's confirmed to be legit. Many people, myself included, have found their balances and transaction history in the leak.
Mark's reddit account and blog just got hacked and this showed up, in line with the rumors from a couple days ago; it's been posted and promptly removed by mods on /bitcoin.

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?

Whatever happened to QBitcoin?

There's a wiki page about it (stopped updating Feb 2011), a few specifications, some forum posts about it's development, even a whole press release on May 2011.
Where is it? It states that it would offer nice features, such as wallet encryption. Where's the download, or even the source code on Github? Anybody know?

The value of the coins is estimated to be $116 million USD, which happens to cover their $64 million USD in outstanding debts nicely and might offer them the chance to emerge from bankruptcy. After shutting down the site, magicaltux secured these new funds manually into the new wallet My theory: I believe the hacker compromised a random account, added arbitrary number of bitcoins (500k) to this account through SQL injection, and them sold them off.
