Peter N. Munsing's answer With that amount of money you want to contact a member of the Va. Trial Lawyers Assn or other who handles class actions. I suggest you try Diane Nast in Philadelphia. Tell her I suggested you call.
In the meantime go through your files, make copies of email confirmations, other documents.
Given that bitcoins have a unique password, assuming you have those it may be possible to get them out of ether. But first document, note dates of each event.
Glenn B. Manishin's answer To the best of my knowledge, Virgina does allow single-member LLCs. (Single member partnerships are not permitted.)
Your business is conducted online but as the owner you have a physical presence in Virgina, even if just your home. You are therefore required to register as a "foreign" corporation if in operated in another state.
Glenn B. Manishin's answer The legal concept you are invoking is called "fair use" ad is an exception to copyright. You cannot duplicate a website or its pages but under some circumstances -- which vary depending on the amount, nature and context of use -- use a portion of their content. Attribution or linking is not a defense or sufficient by itself alone. You should seek counsel on this from someone who knows the application of copyright to website "scraping."
