    James Gorman Not Sure What The Hell To Think Of Bitcoin

    “I’m not sure I understand it. I mean, it is totally surreal. I mean, who’s the founder, this guy in L.A. What’s going on with Mt. Gox? I mean, there are so many moving parts. Let’s just say I would think and hope that the regulators are paying a lot of attention to it.” [FBN]

    The Bitcoin Bugle: Beginning Of The End? Edition

    Once upon a time—like, a few weeks ago—Mt. Gox was one of the largest bitcoin exchanges in the world. Maybe the largest; who really knows anything for sure in matters cryptocurrent?
