Mt. Gox was a card game trading site before they got into the Bitcoin stealing business (MTGOX = Magic The Gathering Online eXchange). Why did anyone trust them with their money? I bet they stole trading cards too.

And isn't the purpose of cryptocurrency for it to be decentralized anyway, meaning no central exchanges/banks in the first place?
