Mt.Gox CEO Mark Karpeles has just issued a public statement, assuring Mt.Gox customers that he has not fled Japan, and “kindly”asking customers to refrain from asking any questions to the Mt.Gox staff on the whereabouts of their crypto-wealth, as Karpeles has instructed his staff “not to give any response or information“.
Well. That should calm those pesky people wanting access to their funds considerably.
Dear MtGox Customers,
As there is a lot of speculation regarding MtGox and its future, I would like to use this opportunity to reassure everyone that I am still in Japan, and working very hard with the support of different parties to find a solution to our recent issues.
Furthermore I would like to kindly ask that people refrain from asking questions to our staff: they have been instructed not to give any response or information. Please visit this page for further announcements and updates.
Mark, perhaps your staff wouldn’t be dealing with bothersome customer questions if your company hadn’t “lost” over $300 million of their funds in the past week?
