BTC-e case: Some thoughts and questions

Having reviewed both the indictment as well as the press release from the DoJ, there are several questions I think should be discussed. Some parts of the indictment make me believe that this whole action against BTC-e and Vinnik could lead to much more problems than most are aware at the moment.
For example: In count 2 of the indictment, they write: "BTC-e was an international money laundering scheme [...]". They do not state that parts of BTC-e were used by the defendants as a money laundering scheme. BTC-e was, according to the DoJ, a money laundering scheme, thus all persons who ever deposed money or Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency in BTC-e may be seen by the US as co-conspirators. I personally never used BTC-e, so I don't really care for me, but I know that people who were doing legit business also were using BTC-e. So does this mean that all of them potentially have to face a lawsuit against them in the US?
Under count 6, they state: "Despite doing substantial business in the United States, BTC-e was not registered as a money services business... [...] as federal law requires." Now they also state that BTC-e was managed by a company in the Seychelles and had its web domains registered in countries like Singapore, British Vifgin Islands, France and New Zealand while BTC-e stated to be located in Bulgaria, operating under the laws of Cyprus. At the end of the day, under count 16, the indictment states that BTC-e - which, according to the indictment didn't ask its clients for identifiers, serverd "numerous customers in the United States and customers in the Northern District of California." Am I the only one who thinks this is weird? First the DoJ claims that BTC-e did not ask for any identifier, then the DoJ claims that there were a lot of - obviously identifiable - customers from the US? Well, at least two of them were identified: Two corrupt U.S. federal agents.
Okay, then the indictment states that BTC-e used servers in the US. I guess they refer to Cloudflare. So using Cloudflare makes you potentially a subject to US law? Also, the indictment states that companies in California were used by BTC-e. But none of them is named nor its role. This looks a bit weird.
The indictment also states that wire transfers from banks in the U.S. and made by U.S. citizens were accepted.
So my interpretation of this: ANY Bitcoin exchange accepting wire transfers from the U.S. or accepting clients from the U.S. or using any internet service from the U.S. is potentially at risk of being prosecuted if they do not comply with U.S. laws.
Later in the indictment, they list illegal transactions of about 18'000 Mt.Gox-Bitcoin to Tradehill in San Francisco. All of these transactions took place in January and February 2012, the last ones on February 12, 2012. The next day, Tradehill announced that it will shut down its operations. Tradehill was by then, if I understand it correctly, set up and operated by Jered Kenna. So would this make him a money launderer, too?
To make one thing clear: I never used Mt.Gox nor BTC-e, nor do I support money laundering in any way. However, this case could become more important over the time for Bitcoin related businesses all over the world. It means: Accepting clients from the U.S. or using internet services in the U.S. potentially puts you in a situation where you have to act according to U.S. laws.
I live in Europe, and I'm willing to live according my country's laws (as far as possible). However, I am not willing to form my business to comply with U.S. laws - which sometimes would make me violate domestic laws.
In the long term, this could mean that Bitcoin companies should refuse to render their services to any US citizen and/or company.

Jered Kenna: Tradehill founder partnering with Broker Dealer and launching new platform on TradeZero

My name is Jered Kenna, in 2011 I founded Tradehill; the first US based Bitcoin exchange.
After Tradehill closed it's doors I designed a platform to facilitate off market trades. As a trader and exchange operator the Bitcoin side has never been a problem. The difficulties in the digital currency world have always involved the banks.
With the goal of bringing more speed and liquidity to Bitcoin I've partnered with TradeZero; a licensed broker dealer. US Dollars and other national currencies are held in a reputable international bank. The Bitcoin is secured with Bitgo at no additional cost to our users.
There are currently three ways to trade with us.
Transfer: If you simply want to send currency to someone else on the platform type in their email address or account number. The transaction is instant and non reversible. 0.2% flat fee for the sender.
Direct Trade: Essentially a two way transfer. Use this if you have a preexisting relationship with someone whom you would like to trade. Enter their email or account number followed by the trade details you would like to propose. For example “700 USD for 1XBT(BTC)”. The other party will then be asked to either accept or reject the trade. Upon acceptance the trade will instantly close and be settled. Either party can cancel the trade until that point. Trades are final and there is a 0.2% fee for the initiator.
Dark Pool: Much like a common floating exchange with a few key differences. There is an order book with bids and asks but it is not visible. There is only one order type. Bids and asks are filled at the price requested. The biggest advantage is the ability to move large trades without disturbing the market. If you're looking to make a large buy or sell you can do so without tipping your hand. On a typical exchange a large sell would drive the price down resulting in a worse price for the seller. Conversely a large buy order would raise the price. This is known as slippage. There is no fee on the dark pool. Currently there is a .2% minimum spread for orders to close.
Launch and perspective clients. Our original launch announcement was in August. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-bitcoin-trading-darkpool-idUSKCN10M1ZA . Unfortunately around the launch date details were becoming available on the Bitfenix hack. Bitgo began to make changes and we decided to take advantage of the fact that we were just getting started. We halted our launch and began to modify the platform to be more secure and improve the user interface. All of the modifications are complete and have been thoroughly tested.
TradeZero is open to everyone that is interested in opening an account with $10,000 or more in USD or Bitcoin. TradeZero accepts high net worth individuals, businesses and institutions. Please note that the stock trading portion of TradeZero is not open to US citizens. The digital currency side is.

2 BTC Reward to whoever can find my lost bitcoins! That's $400 and growing... Details inside.

BOUNTY OF 2BTC TO ANYONE THAT CAN FIND THESE BITCOINS!
This is a follow up post to THIS one that I started a little over a week ago. Activity on that thread died, so I'm reviving it here.
.
There is a VERY HIGH possibility that the coins are in an old Tradehill account. I've had zero luck hearing from Jered Kenna via a bitcointalk PM, [email protected], and [email protected]. If anyone has a way to get his attention to this thread or a way to contact him, it would help immensely. If the coins turn out to be in the Tradehill account, I will split the reward with the person who suggested Tradehill in the first thread, and the person who gets me in contact with Jered. Right now Bitcoins are trading at $200usd, so that's a pretty nice reward.
.
It seems that the coins were transferred from 1NC7smnWpxe1w5R9y9rrStGGZhPh5QkYJA to 1LnArZXAJuZWzPjtP6NZUYLd8hjHUA5UDD, and from there they went to 1A38hcTaAP6zZXkCs1e75QDS7SLaYoPft6 in THIS transaction. From there, it's hard to tell... 1KQM6trPRWU3gyywDwoQoHTvjEYpfq9GSs has 10 coins waiting to be retrieved. The rest I'm unsure about. HERE is a nice visualization of the path.
.
Here's the backstory:
.
Back in 2011 I casually bought ~20 bitcoins, just because I was interested in them and wanted to see what they did. Shortly after, the bubble burst and they plummeted in value. I transferred them out of Mt.Gox into another exchange, and forgot about them... chalking it up to a waste. OBVIOUSLY, that isn't the case.
.
Fast forward two years, and bitcoin is proving to be the future of e-currency as we know it. I go to check on my bitcoins, and unfortunately I seriously CANNOT remember the name of the website I transferred the funds to. I have an address they were withdrawn to, a date, and nothing more. Is there any way I can find out what site it was?
.
I posed this question a few months ago without any answers. A little help was offered, but it proved fruitless. I'm hoping the coins are not lost forever. Sigh...
.
Here is the information copied from my MtGox history:
8/15/2011 23:45 Withdraw Bitcoin withdraw to 1NC7smnWpxe1w5R9y9rrStGGZhPh5QkYJA 15.975 8/19/2011 10:15 Withdraw Bitcoin withdraw to 1NC7smnWpxe1w5R9y9rrStGGZhPh5QkYJA 4.45 
And here are a few links that might help:

https://coinbase.com/network/addresses/1NC7smnWpxe1w5R9y9rrStGGZhPh5QkYJA
http://blockchain.info/address/1NC7smnWpxe1w5R9y9rrStGGZhPh5QkYJA
Here is what I have attempted so far:
  • Not mybitcoin
  • Not btc-e.com
  • Not cavirtex.com
  • Not bitcoincommodities.com
  • Not bitcoinmarket.com
  • Not bitcoinsinberlin.com
  • Not intersango.com
  • No relevant signup confirmation emails are in my gmail acocunt

Is Tradehill allowing people to sign up? Also having a strange promotion?

Howdy,
I got an email from them earlier in they day, just having a chance to look at it. I find it kind of an odd email. The reason I asked this as I went to the site and put in the information it requests and it just said, "thanks for your interest", and didn't go further.
Here it is for reference:
Hello Ddraig,
Thank you for your interest in creating a Bitcoin trading account with Tradehill. Due to the overwhelming response in the last few weeks, we have scaled our team and launched a new account creation process on our website www.tradehill.com/sign-up.
As an accredited investor, and we would like to invite you be the first to create your Tradehill Prime account (http://tradehill.us5.list-manage.com/.......) . After you complete the sign-up form and identity verification, we will grant account access within 24 hours. Your account will be gifted $75 to test trading and will become fully active once we receive your deposit of $10,000 USD or Bitcoin equivalent.
If you need assistance or have any questions, please contact our client services team: [email protected] (mailto:[email protected]) . Regards, Jered Kenna Tradehill, Inc., CEO
Edit: I guess my questions are: why didn't it let me complete the sign up? Has anyone else gotten one of these emails? and is this some elaborate scam because it reads as though they're going to give me $10,000 or BTC equivalent?
