Kobuta: Gox made the mistake by not checking the if the transaction ID's were valid, no one "stole" anything, Mt Gox were stupid in not checking for valid transaction ID's and handed the money out, a 2 year old known issue that isn't an issue if you knew what you were doing.

This is not going to work, firstly they could only tax exchanges in Japan to which there are none. They could only technically tax Japanese residents and have to prove the transactions where done while in Japan.
You don't get taxed for exchanging your money into another currency so why bitcoin? You going to tax playstation points, xbox points and every other "points" system out there?

Kobuta Chan: Please don't post if you don't know what you are talking about, Digital Cryptocurrency has 100% transparency, everyone can see every transaction and how much everyone has. You can not "steal" it unless you know the owners private key (just like a password).

Everyone knows there was no bug in bitcoin but a bug in MtGox's implementation of it, they have no one else but to blame but themselves, they should have had much stronger offline cold storage systems, how the hell did their cold storage systems get stolen as well over a space of 2 years!?

So they haven't been inspecting them at all previously? I think if you operate a bridge or a tunnel you need to be checking all the time with the number of quakes in this country!?

This guy needs to go to jail, Gox was hacked 2 years ago and 800K stolen, told no one about it, continued to operate lke nothing had happened, then lied about bitcoin having a security problem when the s**t hit the fan.
He's not even sorry he was quoted as saying "it was a wild ride"
