Skip to comments.Mt.Gox says it found 200,000 bitcoins in 'forgotten' wallet
Posted on 03/21/2014 6:03:58 AM PDT by Red in Blue PA
Mt.Gox said on Friday it found 200,000 "forgotten" bitcoins on March 7, a week after the Tokyo-based digital currency exchange filed for bankruptcy protection, saying it lost nearly all the 850,000 bitcoins it held, worth some $500 million at today's prices.
Mt.Gox made the announcement on its website. Online sleuths had noticed around 200,000 bitcoins moving through the crypto-currency exchange after the bankruptcy filing.

Paay no attention to the man behind the curtain...I AM THE GREAT AND POWERFUL MT. GOX!
There’s enough fodder here for an episode of “American Greed.”
I thought you might find this amusing.
And he discovered that the $13,000 scrap metal trinket he was going to melt down is actually a Russian gold egg worth $33million.
It could happen...
It was mine! I lost it !................................
After this he should get a job with the DNC finding misplaced ballots...
Can you print your own bitcoins with a 3d printer?
The comments over at that site are brutal.
When Bitcoin finally evaporates do you think the value of my P-Marlowe coins will go through the roof?
It could happen........................
you don't need a printer. All you need to do is claim that you have "x" amount of bitcoins in your wallet. Kinda like all those carbon credits that Al Gore has in his wallet.
Unless some virtual thief picks your virtual pocket and virtually steals your virtual wallet with your virtual money in it thus leaving you virtually broke.
Since only a million will ever be "mined" the potential is there (if the P-Marlowe Coin becomes the international coin of the realm), that each coin could be ultimately worth a Trillion Dollars.
And if nobody else buys them from me, then conceivably I could virtually become the richest person in the history of the world.
So I am taking a huge risk in selling these things for a mere $800 each.
Yah, this really inspires confidence...
and they said it couldnt happen...HERE!
I have some left over monopoly money..
I’ll take 10,000 bucks worth.
You're going to have to throw in Boardwalk, Park Place and B&O Railroad. I need some real estate to back up that paper money.
“When Bitcoin finally evaporates do you think the value of my P-Marlowe coins will go through the roof?”
Hard to say. You’re already facing lots of competition here. For example, there’s SkyPilotCoin and CatnipmanCoin, as well as a new currency based on bacon that uses BaconBits for change.
And here I had thought I had cornered the market on evaporative cyber currency. I guess I'll have to come up with a new scheme.
But, as PT Barnum aptly noted, "there's a sucker born every minute". So perhaps there's enough suckers so that all of us fledgling cyber currency dealers end up as trillionares.
We know there are at least 70 million of them.
Noticeably absent from this thread are all the bit coin ping list people.
A coin for you and yours, it’s called Denialcoin!
It’s called work!
I have.. umm blatic.. would that work?
I found bitcoins in a hole in my back yard. I’ve been treasure hunting with my cyberbit detector, and this was like the find of a lifetime. I’ve got the headphones on, I’m listening, and all of a sudden I get this pinging. Ping, ping, ping.
So, I frantically begin to dig, and there in an old treasure chest was an overflowing supply of bits. Just looking into that chest I estimated it to be about one foot by two feet by a foot and a half deep. Overflowing with bits.
I said, “Self, how many bits can you fits in one square inch? Well, they’re cyberbits, dummy,” says I to meself, and then exclaimed, “that means there are as many as you say there are!”
So, I’ve decided on billions and billions. I’ve got to be careful, though. Despite it being on me own land, I’m sure there are buried treasure laws that will hand everything over to the Smithsonian or the Tri-Lateral Commission.
Fortunately for me, they’re tasteless, odorless, massless, and pulseless. I’m thinking of just putting them all in my spirit locker and spiriting them all away to Japan. Where I’m sure they’ll be safe from prying eyes.
The Shibumicoin will be the de facto world currency.
All other “X”coins will bow before it.
This is because of its massiveness in spite of existing in a cyber state. Large numbers of Higgs Bosons are incorporated in the minting of Shibumicoins, thus giving them the substance that all other virtual currencies lack.
All your “X”coins are belong to us. For Great Justice!
Nah nuh nah nuh nah! Neener! Neener! Neerer!
They are all in my spirit locker and have been spirited out of reach of your grasping cyberpaws. Besides I've incanted over them, and YOU can't see them!
Careful...or I'll DOUBLE-INCANT and you won't be able to see YOURS either!!
I Double-Dog-Cyber-Dare ya!
Illigitimi post facto ergo est pluribus Unum NoSeebumi!
Double-dog incanted indeed.
Now you can’t see your ShibumiCoins!
They are now officially NoSeeBumi gone.
MISSING WIFE FOUND - An Alaskan Story
The day after his wife disappeared In a kayaking accident, an Anchorage man answered his door to find two grim-faced Alaska State Troopers.
“We’re sorry Mr. Wilkens, but we have some information about your wife”, said one of the troopers.
“Tell me! Did you find her?”, Wilkens exclaimed.
The troopers looked at each other.
One said, “We have some bad news, some good news, and some really great news.. Which would you like to hear first?”
Fearing the worst, Mr. Wilkens said, “Give me the bad news first.”
The trooper said, “I’m sorry to tell you, sir, but this morning we found your wife’s body in Kachemak
“Oh my God!”, exclaimed Wilkens.
Swallowing hard, he asked, “What’s the good news?”
The trooper continued, “When we pulled her up, she had 12 twenty-five-pound king crabs and 6 good-sized Dungeness crabs clinging to her, and we feel you are entitled to a share in the catch.”
Stunned, Mr. Wilkens demanded, “If that’s the good news, then what’s the great news?”
The trooper replied, “We’re gonna pull her up again tomorrow.”
Two men have been sitting out on a lake all day long ice fishing. One has been having no luck at all, while the other has been pulling fish after fish out of his hole in the ice. The man having no luck finally leans over and asks the other what his secret is.
“mmmmm mmm mm mmm mmmm mmm mmm,” is the reply.
“I’m sorry, what did you say?”
“mmmmm mmm mm mmm mmmm mmm mmm,” the successful fisherman repeats.
“I’m sorry, I still didn’t understand you.” The man spits something into his hand and says very clearly,
“You’ve got to keep your worms warm.”
Stash and Ski go cyberfishing for bitfish on LakeGox.
The fishing is great and the haul bitfish after bitfish into their rented virtual punt all the day long.
As evening starts to wane into night they decide to go in, but Stash says to Ski “We better rewmember where we found at these bitfish so we can come back and get more tomorrow.”
At this point Ski pulls out a can of spray paint and makes an “X” in the bottom of the virtual boat.
“What the hell are you doing?” says Stash.
“I’m marking the spot” says Ski.
“You dummy!” says Stash. “How do you know we’ll get the same boat?”
Ski replies “It’s a virtual certainty!”
