Founded by Mark Karpeles, who later was found guilty of tampering with financial records. The Exchange was hacked several times and ultimately declared bankruptcy. It closed down in 2014. It is the largest and most famous of all hacks, mainly due to the incompetence of Karpeles and those running it.
