i noticed that the ceo of mt.gox (which has been in the news due to being the largest bitcoin exchange and now declaring bankrupty among other things) mark karpeles was once a graal administrator, i guess he had done really well for himself since leaving at least up until now!

(sorry if he is a persona non grata, i dont know!)

The Mt. Gox bitcoin exchange in Tokyo filed for bankruptcy protection Friday and its chief executive said 850,000 bitcoins, worth several hundred million dollars, are unaccounted for.

Basically MtGox tried to centralize a decentralized currency and got a rather startling wakeup call. Alot of people are looking at them like WHY did u store all the bitcoins in 1 place.. they could have done this so much more elegantly and due to the decentralized nature of bitcoin it means they could have done what they did so much more better then any banking, clearing house, centralized system could ever have accomplished I dont get why they think they deserve bankruptcy at all.. exactly what happens to the remaining bitcoins if any? seized or they get to keep?

I think these most recent (and coincidental) events serve to illustrate a fundamental concern:

I agree completely. I'm very interested in the cryptocurrency market, and there are many businesses and websites who are integrating bitcoin as payment, but I can completely understand why someone wouldn't want to take it. Say you pay $50 for gelats in bitcoin, and then the next day, the market crashes and they're now worth $15. Sure, they have a chance of going up, and maybe it will return to the value that it was used to pay for gelats. However, if anyone would be interested in paying in bitcoin, you may as well sell them to get the actual money to pay for it instead.
