"Oh hai! Here's this program that will let you steal Bitcoin wallets from others. Just download it from this free upload site and run it on your computer. I promise it won't steal *your* wallet from *your* computer. Of course you can trust me!"

I think seeking redress for this from a government gives that government increasing decision-making power over the Bitcoin realm.

I also think that any judgment handed down by a judge would probably involve reimbursing BFL customers in accordance with the fiat value of BTC at the time of purchase, not at present values. And most likely in fiat. I could be wrong, of course.

But it seems that going to the government to solve the problem is, indirectly, saying: "We can't manage our own affairs without your guiding hand."

I understand your point and I agree.  However, I am just not comfortable to stay cool to see people who get a big lost when a big price drop happens.  People like you may not suffer, but people here with me, throwing their every cent, plus all that from 10+ credit cards may not see light again.  Should the conclusion be: "We can't help with those crazy guys. It always happens."?

Apart from reminding them of the common sense of "Don't risk anything you can't afford to lose?" Unfortunately not.

It's sad news, to be sure.  Bitmit wasn't pretty, but it worked.

I suspect eBay wants to get into the Bitcoin game. They've been champing at the bit.

Block Erupters are already past obsolete. Trying to build them from scratch would be more expensive than buying them, and even then you'd be throwing your money away.

Also, China.

Funny ... is based out of Hong Kong. is registered to a hidden proxy address service in Washington State, USA. uses CloudFlare for DNS. uses WEBS.COM, a freebie hosting service.

Nice try, scammer.

Using is not always necessarily going to give you an accurate total of your funds in a hot wallet.

This is why.

Bitcoin discussion / Re: [Help] BTCGuild stole my bitcoins!

I doubt that they've stolen anything from you.

Have you checked to make sure that you're connecting to the right pool and that you're configured correctly? What mining program are you using? Are you showing that your work is being accepted?

Don't forget that work has to be confirmed before funds can be rewarded. I've never mined on BTCGuild, so I don't know, but they're well established. If they were inclined to steal, it wouldn't be the results of 18 hours of mining at 9.7gigahashes.

I'd do a system rollback (if you're on Windows).

Did you try drying out your USB and plugging it in?

If you know your public address(es), you should be able to look them up on to check balances.
