    The losses reported in the demise of MtGox exchange lead me to realization that some individuals may have lost too much, having trusted bitcoin too much.

    Either murdered or death faked. Either way, she’s in no position to spill any of those all revealing beans.

    Central bank (banking elite families) will never allow alternative currency to exist. They are psychopaths and don’t mind dead bodies laying around to preserve their power.

    If paper money is fiat money, then what is virtual money? Where does its value come from?
