Bitcoin investor Roger Ver divulged details regarding the arrest of Mt. Gox CEO Mark Karpeles which had not yet come to light for the Coin Congress 2015 crowd in San Francisco’s Hilton Union Square. The Bitcoin entrepreneur suspects that the US government is visiting jurisdictions in which Bitcoin exchanges operate, having visited not only Tokyo where Mark Karpeles of Mt. Gox resides, but also Slovenia, home of Bitcoin exchange BitStamp.
“I think people should know the federal prosecutor Kathryn Haun flew out to Tokyo a few weeks before Mark Karpeles was arrested,” he said. Haun is an Assistant U.S. Attorney with the United States Department of Justice.
“Although I do not know for sure, I suspect that the US government is putting pressure on the Japanese government,” Ver told the Coin Congress crowd.
