Rolling Stone profile

Rolling Stone publishes a profile of Karpeles and Mt. Gox, titled The Rise and Fall of a Bitcoin Kingpin. On stealing Gameboys and mobile phones as a teenager by hacking shopping websites:

A lot of people respected me for that. I did feel more important, in a way. If I need something, I press a button and I get it.

On what he felt like when he realized $650 million in bitcoins were gone:

It really felt unreal. I don’t know how to describe that. When you get a hospital operation without any anesthetic, it hurts at first, but at some point the pain reaches a point where you don’t feel anything anymore.
