So, I take it you didnt actually bother checking for yourself.
You just took the word of somebody parroting a copied news article that itself was based on a tweet.
Checking the news article in question, I read these comments:
LR WAS not a bitcoin exchange ...
LOL at people trying to conjure up some connection between Bitcoin and the bust du jour of some unrelated currency or business.
And also, on a bitcoin message forum, bitcointalk.org, I read this message thread:
PSA: Liberty Reserve and WM Center exchange are not Bitcoin
I been reading on a lot of articles that are stating that these and a couple virtual currencies sites were seized because of bitcoin.
This couldn't farther from the true and these incorrect statements are hurting the bitcoin community.
This is a perfect example of why one should not rush to ATS to post "breaking news" based on reading one single article.
