Once the world’s biggest market for the digital currency, the Tokyo-based exchange collapsed on Feb. 28, 2014 with liabilities of some ¥6.5 billion ($63.6 million). It said it was unable to account for some 850,000 bitcoins, worth nearly half a billion dollars at the time.


But there’s still no explanation of what happened to them, and no clear record of what happened on the exchange.

как тонко подметил один из комментаторов @ Slashdot, “Wasn’t that the whole point behind Bitcoin? That you could fleece investors without leaving a paper trail?”. конечно же, да.
