The Fall of Mt. Gox

Date: Monday, March 10thRyan Selkis
Time: 6:00pm
Location: E51-345

Join the MIT Bitcoin Club, Cambridge Bitcoin Meetup, and Ryan Selkis (MIT Sloan MBA ’16) for a riveting discussion about the fall of MtGox, once bitcoin’s largest exchange.

Rumors started swirling last month as MtGox halted withdrawals without official confirmation on solvency. Behind the scenes, over 750,000 bitcoins were missing and Ryan Selkis found himself in possession of very incriminating documentation. Hear the story of how the “two-bit idiot” uncovered the $460 million fraud which led to the MtGox bankruptcy.
