And, as CoinDesk reports, the disgraced former CEO of the one-time premier bitcoin trading platform has decided to give it a second try by launching new web hosting service called Forever.net and is registered under both Karpeles' name and that of Tibanne, the parent company of Mt Gox.
TIBANNE Co.Ltd. is a Tokyo, Japan-based corporation founded in 2009 by talented technopreneurs. TIBANNE specializes in web hosting, IP transit, VoIP, software development and network administration. We are currently engaged in the reserch and development of new and existing services to produce innovative solutions for our clients."
As CoinDesk notes, while Mark Karpeles has managed to keep a relatively low profile following the collapse of Mt Gox, he is willing to talk about other projects.
"Unlike other subjects, I am able to discuss Forever.net," he told NewsBTC's Eric Calouro.
In an email exchange with Calouro, Karpeles said Tibanne has been in the web hosting business for years. "We've been doing this since 2009, and even before founding Tibanne I help found a couple other hosting companies," he said.
