Bitcoin Price Hits $135 on Mt. Gox Following Office Move and Verification Demand
(CoinDesk) Updates and rumors related to Mt. Gox this week include: a possible company relocation, a requirement for users to hold verified accounts to withdraw bitcoins and a fall in Gox’s listed price of Bitcoin.
A user contacted CoinDesk to tell of the verification requirement Thursday morning, saying it “suddenly appeared” on the site. There hasn’t been an announcement of any change on Mt. Gox’s website, however, and other sources said the condition had been there for a while now.
The “Verifying Your Account” section of the website says: “All MtGox user accounts are required to be verified in order to perform any deposits or withdrawals.”
