At 10:30 pm, February 24th 2014, www.mtgox.com has shut down.
When you go to www.mtgox.com, it is still hosted and available to view, however there is absolutely no content on the page. The source code is the following:
<html> <head> </head> <body> </body> </html>
What does this mean? There is a lot of speculation:
- They could be implementing their Crisis Recovery Strategy.
- They could be shutting down and preparing to bail.
Whatever the case, this means something. The latter bulletted point would be a huge blow to the customers of MtGox (obviously) and to the whole Bitcoin community.
What Should One Do?
We can’t do anything.
