I didn't want to appear that I'm rubbing it in that bitcoin has increased 1,869% in value over the past 52 weeks. That wouldn't be very nice of me. Anyway, the next collapse is just around the corner.

This cartoon nails it:

Bitcoiners think that Mt Gox employs a middle-aged black man with a faint resemblance to Obama to sit at a desk and look at a multitude of papers having random over-sized words on them, WHEN IN FACT, Mt Gox actually charges said Obama-resembling man with the task of standing on his chair and controlling two large levers, labelled "B Price" and "Lag," protruding from his desk, so that they are positioned on a continuum from "low" to "high" and from "good" to "bad," respectively.


Is this about right, Wiki?

Check out this post from the btc-e exchange board:
quote:

Jonathanp219: What the hell! I sent BTC to my BTC-E finances. And still I have 0/unconfirmed. My BTC are already gone from my wallet, I did this transaction like 2 hours ago....


So much for 24/7 access to your money!

Bitcoin24 exchange closes

LINK

quote:

Before we proceed, let’s take a moment to look at Bitcoin24's long and untarnished history. Founded in May of 2012, Bitcoin24 was allegedly the largest buttcoin exchange in Europe, with only the mighty Mt. Gox surpassing it in terms of volume and profit. Apparently they also surpass the Magic: the Gathering Online Exchange in terms of utter incompetence and hilarity. Recently, people found the admins asking questions on StackOverflow about how MySQL works and how to round numbers when working with financial data. This was followed by the site’s trading engine shitting the bed and started to give people more money or bitcoins than they deserved, like a faulty ATM spitting torrents of cash into the street. It then broke down even further, with trades randomly appearing and disappearing before the site’s functionality went down entirely. A few days ago, the site made the above announcement, in even more broken English. Today, we find this PDF, outlining the following (thanks to SA forums goon Greyhawk for the translation): Oh, boy. So first thing this is a very, very bad translation from Polish into German. Very bad. Half of it doesn’t even make sense. But the gist of it is: - The German prosecution knows everything there is to know about bitcoin-24 right from when they began operating. And I do mean everything. Current bank accounts, old bank accounts. Who the money was coming from, who it was going to. Everything. In total over 500000 Euro were transferred via these accounts mostly from Germany towards Poland, Romania and Bulgaria - German prosecution sees bitcoin-24 as a massive money laundering operation and are proceeding against the owner - German prosecution has evidence that the owner is involved in phishing attacks and is proceeding against him about that too. Apparently the owner was retarded enough to send the “pure profit” of those attacks to the polish bitcoin24 bank account. Furthermore, we find that his home was raided and he is no longer free.

Meanwhile, MtGOX is suffering from yet another “DDoS” and having a slew of issues with banks and Bitfloor is gone again. Just another day in the life of the currency of the future!

The btc-e board is blowing up. It's funnier than any sitcom.

Apparently bitcoin-24's founder is named Simon (and they all believe he's innocent, BTW)

Quote from: 600watt on April 18, 2013, 09:46:37 AM we should sue THEM, not simon. yep, we should all sue the german authorities and banks who created this mess. after we are through with them they´d never touch btc accounts again.

you two idiots are dumber than i thought


the btc-e chat box is overwhelmingly ridiculed and ignored throughout the bitcoin community. it's commonly referred to as the trollbox.

only a moron would take anything said in it seriously. and i see you two have proven that

I love how y'all conveniently lump bitcoins and bitcoin exchanges together into the same box, and then gush over unregulated exchanges failing
