Amongst the information shared was Karpeles CV, his home address and a spreadsheet of trading history. However the most interesting find was a list of account balances – in the file posted on Pastebin, Karpeles has listed a total of 951,116 Bitcoins, an amount that hackers say proves he's lying about cyber thieves infiltrating Mt. Gox and stealing everyone's money. Or, as they put it: "That fat fuck has been lying!!"
Perhaps this is an example of shocking bookkeeping: Karpeles is notorious for his disorganisation. Or maybe this is evidence that there are indeed many more layers to the Mt. Gox story – an incident that has left many Bitcoin users frustrated, angry and out of pocket.
