What Bitcoin Did #76 Mark Karpels on the Collapse of Mt. Gox

What Bitcoin Did #76 Mark Karpels on the Collapse of Mt. Gox

‚œI am very sorry about the way things went; I wish I could go back and fix things. There is only so much I can do so I just continue helping and making sure people get as much as help as they can.‘ ‚“ Mark Karpelƒs

Interview location: Tokyo

Interview date: Saturday 16th Feb, 2019

Company: Mt. Gox

Role: CEO

The shadow of Mt. Gox still hangs over Bitcoin some five years after it collapsed. At the time it held 7% of all Bitcoin in circulation and was the primary exchange for Bitcoin traders. It was reported that 850,000 Bitcoins had been stolen, of which 750,000 were customer coins and 100,000 were owned by Mt. Gox, though 200,000 were later found.

In the five years since, more and more information, research and analysis has pointed at a chaotic operation with poor security procedures, yet opinions range. Some label Mark anything from incompetent to a straight up fraudster while others sympathise with the challenges faced by running the worlds first Bitcoin exchange.

In this interview, I talk to Mark about the collapse of Mt. Gox, how he acquired it from Jed McCaleb, the process of civil rehabilitation and how Brock Pierce and Coinlab are holding up the distribution of funds to the creditors.

What Bitcoin Did #75 Jed McCaleb on the Creation of Mt. Gox

Distributed Dialogues EP #17 – Low Hanging Fruit

Distributed Dialogues EP #17 – Low Hanging Fruit

„Once people become comfortable with blockchain … Remember, blockchain is really tainted by bitcoin, which is tainted by the dark web. Healthcare is looking at it going, „Oh my God, this is a creepy space. We don’t want any piece of this.“ Well, that’s a problem if you’re an entrepreneur. You want to choose something that has minimum amount of regulation, biggest upside possible, get everybody comfortable, move forward.“ – Dr. Alan Pitt


Many companies in the healthcare sector have been exploring how blockchain technology can upend long-standing processes that have bogged down the system for decades. However, a lot of them are attempting to tackle major, big-picture issues that could take decades to accomplish with a budding technology. So we asked our guests, „What’s something tangible that could be accomplished in the near future?“ This episode explores those responses, with a little help and humor from Dave and Grahm. Enjoy!

#274 Alexey Akhunov: Ethereum 1.x – BUIDLing Things One Step at a Time

#274 Alexey Akhunov: Ethereum 1.x – BUIDLing Things One Step at a Time

We’re joined by Alexey Akhunov, an independent Ethereum researcher. Alexey has been working on an ambitious project called TurboGeth. As the name implies, it is a version of Geth which features a number of speed and performance optimizations.

Alexey also leads the state rent working group of the Ethereum 1.x project. Ethereum 1.x came out of Devcon when core developers began to realize that the full migration to Serenity would likely take several years. The team hopes to bring progressive improvements to Ethereum in parallel to the development of Serenity.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • Alexey’s background as a computer scientist
  • The story behind TurboGeth and how it differs from the original Geth client
  • The speed and performance optimizations of TurboGeth, as well as its trade-offs
  • What is Ethereum 1.x in the context of Ethereum 2.0 (Serenity)
  • Which people and projects are part of Ethereum 1.x
  • What is state rent and why it may be beneficial to Ethereum
  • Implementing state rent in Ethereum 1.x and 2.0
  • eWASM and how it can be introduced in Ethereum 1.x and 2.0
  • The future of Ethereum and the progress towards Serenity

Long Distance Dating and Dating on the Road: Proof Of Love hosted by Tatiana Moroz, Stephanie Murphy, PHD, and Lauren Kaszovitz

Is this even possible? Can you sustain a meaningful relationship when there are oceans between you and the object of your affection? What makes it work, and what can ruin it? What about dating while touring the world, whether that’s as a speaker, a musician, or just a digital nomad? How do you get the guts to tell someone that you want to try for something more real, even though it’s hard to get to that place if you are only meeting people in transit? It’s not so easy! It IS possible, or at least some of the ladies seem to think so. How about you? Tell us your long distance experiences, did it work? Utter failure? Any tips or tricks? Leave a comment below.

Attachment Theory: Proof Of Love hosted by Tatiana Moroz, Stephanie Murphy, PHD, and Lauren Kaszovitz

Attachment Theory: Proof Of Love hosted by Tatiana Moroz, Stephanie Murphy, PHD, and Lauren Kaszovitz

My favorite thing I have learned on my journey into my romantic psyche has been Attachment Theory. Whenever I share it with people, it also seems to help them and really resonate. It’s nice to know we are not alone in our weird behaviors some of us have had since childhood, but never really had an explanation for. Hint: you’re not a crazy person (well, you may be, but not because of this specifically). Stephanie had some great articles we touched on, I have some book recommendations, and Lauren shares what it’s like to go from one style into another based on your partner.

Interested in learning your own attachment style? Listen in, and see if you are a secure, anxious, avoidant, or an anxious-avoidant!
