Mt. Gox exchange faces US lawsuit over Bitcoin losses

took much of the value out of the Mt. Gox Bitcoin exchange, leading it to declare bankruptcy ? Yeah, investors aren't happy about that -- and they're now demanding compensation.

When customers may have lost the equivalent of $480 million in virtual currency, there's a lot more than just hurt feelings at stake.
