Screenshots of the emails can be found below.
In one email, Force says, “I wanted to ask you if you could back me on a deal for 250 bitcoin.”
He also sent Karpeles an email where he said he was looking for other work opportunities. He predicted:
The American government and economy will crash in the next five years. I see Bitcoin as the currency of the future.
In the final email, dated 5/15/13, Force says, “Told you [sic] should have partnered with me!”
On Reddit, Karpeles clarified the date displayed on the email:
Actually, his last email appears to be from the 15th, but that is because it is shown as Japanese time. The actual date is “Date: Wed, 15 May 2013 01:11:31 +0000″ (that’s the 14th if you convert to US time – same day dwolla warrant was issued and one day before this hits the news).
Redditor paleh0rse posted, “That… is an amazing disclosure! Any idea on if/when you’ll ever be able to tell us your side of the Gox story — government conspiracies, and all?”
Karpeles responded, “One day, I hope. There are things I cannot disclose and also a lot I do not know – events such as yesterday’s news bring a new light on everything.”
A /r/bitcoin user with the name hatch_bbe asked Karpeles about his next steps: “So what you [sic] going to do now? Is there anything you can do?”
Karpeles replied, “Currently considering available options with the involved parties. It might take some time until a course of action is defined.”
