Mt. Gox Breaks Silence, Makes Confusing Statement on Their Homepage

The folks at Mt. Gox have finally broken their silence, posting a very plain and mostly confusing statement on their website concerning the drama that has unfolded in the past twelve hours.

Dear MtGox Customers,

In the event of recent news reports and the potential repercussions on MtGox’s operations and the market, a decision was taken to close all transactions for the time being in order to protect the site and our users. We will be closely monitoring the situation and will react accordingly.

Best regards,
MtGox Team

With major publications declaring the exchange dead as of last night, it’s interesting to see Gox squirm, clinging to life as best as they possibly can.

The company halted trading last night, before taking their website offline.

Honestly, folks, we have no idea what they’re referring to — but it’s possible there’s some sort of attack going on. Also, it’s interesting the ‘announcement’ here was posted to the website hours after it went offline. The company does not reply to press inquiries, so we’re in the dark on this one.

Reuters reports that Mt. Gox “should have an official announcement ready soon-ish,” according to Mark Karpeles, CEO at the exchange.

“We are currently at a turning point for the business. I can’t tell much more for now as this also involves other parties,” he said.
