Where’s Mark Karpeles

wheres mark karpeles wallyYesterday’s shutdown of MtGox exchange and lack of response from CEO Mark Karpeles gave me the idea for a new game – Where’s Karpeles.

This comes only a day after Karpeles resigned from Bitcoin Foundation, where Gox was a founding member. This is ultimately a serious situation and a lot of people have potentially lost a lot of money (~$409 Million) in this fiasco. That being said it’s times like this when we need to laugh more than any other time.

I don’t intend to offend anyone or marginalize any losses by individuals but couldn’t help myself. So look at the pictures below and try and find Karpeles. I suspect it’s going to be easier here than in real life.

I’m also offering an open invitation for the real Mark Karpeles to comment or grant me an interview on recent events.



  1. I found him! But apparently he’s still in Japan, you should have done one in a Japanese setting.

    • Too true. Next episode!

  2. Over 13% of all Bitcoins have been Stolen, Confiscated, or Lost at some time. And it’s only going to get worse.

    • So do you think Bitcoin/Crypto has no future? Or we just need better security?



  1. Mt.Gox Legal Issues Resurface | Bitcoin Chaser - […] – the Bitcoins were lost and there was nothing to be done, but Japanese police has just arrested Karpeles …
