[Ed. Note: Was this a beta test for the coming Bitcoin end game crash? There are (State) powers who would like to be in control of the crypto-currency’s destiny. Does today’s flash crash herald some measure of their success?]
from News Ledge:
Major news is hitting the currency, and is causing the currency to return to the volatile days of old. Mt. Gox is out with a statement that it has found a bitcoin-wide issue that affects withdrawals. The exchange said that it found a software bug that could affect all bitcoin transactions to third parties, and would need to be addressed with the core development team.
Mt. Gox was quick to point that none of its wallets were affected, but it also wasn’t resuming currency withdrawals. Actions speak louder than words on this one. Now the arguments will come fast and furious on whether it is a localized problem on Mt. Gox’s end or if it is truly a bitcoin issue. Mt. Gox has not exactly had a good run of press lately.
