The Fall of MtGox

Join Ryan Selkis 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.

      There's metered parking along Wadsworth and Ames. If you have a Cambridge parking permit, there's resident parking along Memorial Drive. No free lots, unfortunately. Worst case, you can park in the garage for the Cambridge Marriott, which has its entrance on Broadway and is only a block away.

    The "map" link shows me where MIT is, not helpful. The "virtualroomfinder" shows me pictures of the room, not helpful.
    How do I get this to this? Thanks.

      You can find MIT Building E51 at this map:

      It is along Memorial Drive and the Charles River on the right side. 345 means room 45 on the third floor.

      Doesn't sound like he's up for signing a msg w/ his private key (one that hashes to pub key that received the genesis block) just to 101% prove it :-/

    erm... I'm confused. Ryan Selkis RSVP'd no for this event; I assume this is a joke?

      is this like a saddam hussein body double scenario?

      Yeah, but this is MIT. Holography might be involved.
