Mt. Gox was one of the earliest Bitcoin exchanges, based in Japan, that handled 70 percent of BTC trading back in 2013-2014. It was created by Mark Karpeles.

Mt. Gox was shut down after several hacker attacks due to a poor security system. Karpeles was taken to court by the traders for allegedly wiring $3 million of their funds to his own bank account and investing that money in startups.
