Not quite a good news today with US Officials Freezing an account related to a Bitcoin Exchange.   Well they are alleging that Mt Gox is conducting "unlicensed money service business".   The USA Treasury Department wants Bitcoin exchanges to be "subject to the same money-laundering rules as traditional providers".

Mt. Gox couldn't be reached for comment. A statement on its website said the company had "read on the Internet" about the warrant.
 Hope that Bitcoin providers especially such a major player the likes of Mt. Gox will be able to settle such issues and push forward to make Bitcoin a main Internet currency of the world.
