I truly believe they are, but when an exchange holds almost 80% of the current trade volume, and smaller exchanges are closing left and right, it's hardly a "free market" when the only other game in town is even more unproven and untrustworthy.


That 80% stat is from 2011. I don't think it's true anymore, however, I will grant you that MtGox probably does still maintain a majority of exchange volume.

That being said, you can take this to the bank: The next 2 years are going to see an explosion of bitcoin exchanges open up. And that's because the free market is responding to the shitty service that MtGox provides.

re: Mt. Gox 'throttles' trading to tame bitcoin price swings


So you think the NYSE slowing or stopping trading resulting from an obvious computer malfunction or human error is exactly the same thing as MtGox slowing or stopping trading simply because they don't like or agree with the valid orders their customers are submitting?

And wiki is so stupid he doesn't undertand the difference either......

ETA: And there is NOTHING in the link you provided which says the NYSE has adopted any rules utilizing the technology described in the article to track large, high frequency trading imbalances. It only says the technology is becoming possible. You double fail.

The MtGox overlords will not let this happen, it's pretty obvious they can manipulate the price at will.

Now the question remains: Do you think LSURussian is so stupid that he didn't know that was a figure of speech? Or do you think he was intentionally being a douche bag?

Really wasn't meant to sting, more to express concern

Which of my retorts stung you? I didn't know cold-hearted status-quo-propping statists could get stung easily.

btw, FreeOnes also announced today that they are accepting bitcoins.

it seems like more and more businesses are accepting them all the time. Why do you think that is?

Why would an internet porn website (freeones) accept bitcoins as payment? Possibly to attract more traffic to their free porn site? Come on Wiki.
