As we’ve reported here, Mt. Gox suspended bitcoin withdrawals indefinitely based on what it claims are issues with the global bitcoin protocol. The explanation was met with skepticism from the bitcoin community and, in the latest fallout from the move, Mt. Gox has been removed from the Coindesk Bitcoin Price Index, which is meant to be a global average price estimate. As a result of its withdrawal suspension and “failure to provide a sufficiently credible explanation” Coindesk says that Mt. Gox no longer meets the BPI’s liquidity and reliability criteria for exchange inclusion. [Source: Coindesk]
