Title: Mt Gox Soon . . .
Post by: EuSouBitcoin on November 25, 2011, 12:51:25 PM
Anybody know what's going to happen soon at Mt Gox? Is Mt Gox finally getting a face-lift?

May be "Margin trading" and "Options" if they mean something on the good side :)

The best news would be cutting out Dwolla. Direct bank transfers would be brilliant.

mtgox is heavily behind bitcoin.
if it would be a negative news they just would post it like in past (eg European Bank account closed)

i expect something big, at least a mtgox facelift - but hopefully something bigger.

we will see in 5 days

Mt. Gox's Google+ post (https://plus.google.com/100448119000434100275/posts/cBMESXp1UAG) suggests that it's a new site design

I don't know what they want to keep secret or not,  but the face lift of their website is the least exciting thing they have in the works.
I think 2012 will be the year Bitcoin really starts to explode due to all sorts of new services coming online.

Hi Brandon,

Apologies for the lag - our site has been under quite heavy malicious attack off and on for a couple weeks. Systems are secure and happy, but there is site delay for some people as our defenses battle it out and adapt.

How did you do that? I'm practically blocked, trying for weeks to find a way to get my money. I made a Paxum account just to try a different way, but they're just eating the withdrawals all the time!

I used dwolla to widthdraw USD (and also transferred remaining BTC to my own wallet).

The most pleasant surprise you could give your users is not running out of funds in your Paxum account every couple of weeks.  Bells and whistles shouldn't be a priority until you've addressed far more basic issues like reliability of processing deposits and withdrawals.  At best your inability to resolve those issues makes your company look incompetent.  When you keep saying sorry and the same problem keeps happening with monotonous regularity, it's difficult for people to believe that you give a damn about your customers.  No amount of perky PR speak compensates people for the sheer amount of effort it often takes to complete the most basic of transactions with your company.

Post by: mindphlux on November 28, 2011, 10:19:03 AM
I agree that the best thing to MtGox would be stable and fast withdrawal options like the mentioned paxum withdraw. Last time I tried, I waited for 2 weeks on a paxum withdrawal request. After that time, I decided to cancel the request, it took them almost another week to finally cancel the request.

In my humble opinion, that is absolutly not acceptable. Holding our money hostage for an undefinite amount of time, and not even providing interest for that time.

So, I agree that working paxum withdrawals is way more important than UI changes.

I left tradehill because the would no longer use dowalla and then would not send me a check after 10 days. if mygox did that too id not be pleased.

I'd like to apologize on behalf of TradeHill for the sudden end to Dwolla transfers. We tried to maintain it long enough to allow everyone time to pull their money out but Dwolla continued to remove funds from our account without explanation. To this day they still won't give me an answer, refund or send any documentation they claim to have but that is another issue.

Dwolla was our main funding source and when we made the transition to checks we had a lot of catching up to do. We sent out hundreds of checks in the following days and got almost everyone. Unfortunately it sounds like we missed your check. Since we've had very few transactions that have gone over a day without being sent or received and most within hours at most.

We'd love to have you come back and if you have any issues you'd like to discuss please email us at info@tradehill.com

Regards,
Jered

You may want to give TradeHill another chance.  While the first checks after Dwolla closed were slow all subsequent checks I have gotten from them have been very fast.  Usually about 4-5 days from time I withdraw to the time I have a check in my hand.

I think CryptoExchange also shows promise if they can increase liquidity and lower bank transfer fees.

It was as easy as you could of gotten it. My bank for some reason didn't charge me to send to this bank account and Mt Gox charged me $10 to withdraw.

Technocash closed the MtGox accounts due to people laundering money from stolen cards through them.  MtGox made an announcement about it at a time. 

Like you, I don't know why people were being charged so much to withdraw.  Australian banks don't charge for deposits to other Australian bank accounts and Technocash has low withdrawal fees.

To be fair, I saw this scroll by on IRC today:

(Most useless messages removed)
Quote
[10:49] <@MagicalTux> right now we cannot wire to Paxum because of the investigations on money laundering
[10:51] <Ukto> paxum fail?
[10:51] <deego> MagicalTux: So, that's why my three withdrawal requests are pending for 3 weeks?  Couldn't that have been communicated to us 2 weeks ago so we could cancel our requests?
[10:51] <mindphlux> Why do other exchanges have not the same kind of liquidity problems on paxum?
[10:51] <deego> Anyhow, cancel requests don't work with mtgox any more either.
[10:52] <Ukto> hmm, part of the reason I don't like these 3rd party processors
[10:56] <@MagicalTux> mindphlux: other exchanges are not dealing with the same volumes we are
[10:56] <mindphlux> ok
[10:56] <@MagicalTux> once they get a bit bigger they'll hit the same compliance issues we do
[10:56] <mindphlux> So, honest question, why don't you remove paxum then if it's only providing problems
[10:56] <@MagicalTux> we should be able to send funds to paxum again once the investigation clears us

I'm not a big fan.  Let me qualify that:

The functionality seems to be the same, and that is the important part.  So no complaint there.

It IS better than the old site.

It just seems a little "hippie" and not at all profesional like a bank site.  But then, most bank sites suck.  The calculator and the circles seems a bit frivolous.

But then, it IS better than before.  :)

Like I said, tho, I could really care less how it looks.  I care about how it works.  Speed up cash deposits at Chase bank.  Speed up response time from support.  Those are my main 2 issues.

I don't like that they've removed the "Depth of Market" feature. On my wish list is a "Time and Sales" feature too.

To be fair, I saw this scroll by on IRC today:

(Most useless messages removed)
Quote
[10:49] <@MagicalTux> right now we cannot wire to Paxum because of the investigations on money laundering
[10:51] <Ukto> paxum fail?
[10:51] <deego> MagicalTux: So, that's why my three withdrawal requests are pending for 3 weeks?  Couldn't that have been communicated to us 2 weeks ago so we could cancel our requests?
[10:51] <mindphlux> Why do other exchanges have not the same kind of liquidity problems on paxum?
[10:51] <deego> Anyhow, cancel requests don't work with mtgox any more either.
[10:52] <Ukto> hmm, part of the reason I don't like these 3rd party processors
[10:56] <@MagicalTux> mindphlux: other exchanges are not dealing with the same volumes we are
[10:56] <mindphlux> ok
[10:56] <@MagicalTux> once they get a bit bigger they'll hit the same compliance issues we do
[10:56] <mindphlux> So, honest question, why don't you remove paxum then if it's only providing problems
[10:56] <@MagicalTux> we should be able to send funds to paxum again once the investigation clears us

It seems quite notable to me that there is an investigation which requires Mt. Gox to allow their customers to continue to request withdrawls via Paxum, then completely lock up any money requested in that manner.  For weeks.

I have to assume that the investigation requires this because it seems like exceedingly poor business practices if it is a voluntary mode of operation on Mt. Gox's part. Obviously it is impossibly to tell very much by reading people's posts on this forum, but some of those who have complaints really don't strike me as hard-core financial criminals.

I'm not a big fan.  Let me qualify that:

The functionality seems to be the same, and that is the important part.  So no complaint there.

It IS better than the old site.

It just seems a little "hippie" and not at all profesional like a bank site.  But then, most bank sites suck.  The calculator and the circles seems a bit frivolous.

But then, it IS better than before.  :)

Like I said, tho, I could really care less how it looks.  I care about how it works.  Speed up cash deposits at Chase bank.  Speed up response time from support.  Those are my main 2 issues.

What do you want, cheesy corporate pictures of businessmen with fake tans striding down a glass corridor?   ;D

I like the hipster look. Hipsters can be professional too.

Good job guys, the site design is a lot better than before. I'm sure that this will be great for Bitcoin considering that, "As of July 2011 Mt.Gox handles over 80% of all Bitcoin trade".

The self promotion is a bit over the top on the site. They should just allow it to speak for itself, instead of bombarding us with self advertisements.

They're trying to razzle dazzle people to distract users from the fact that their deposit and withdrawal processes are an absolute clusterfuck.  Hopefully their users aren't going to let themselves be distracted by promises of "great things" in the new year and will keep demanding that MtGox improve its functionality and customer service.  Based on past experience, I'm not confident that will be the case, though.  People tend to stick with MtGox no matter how appalling their service is purely because they have the volume.

I don't like the new design. It is a lot better than before (when there was no design at all) but still... it should look more like bitcoinica. Now it looks like some kind of japanese cartoon.

Buy/sell order page is awful, you have to switch between buy and sell page. The trade data price chart is useless. For instance if you have price swings between $2.5-$3.1 you should draw a chart in that range not $0-$3.1! The same problem with tradehill, useless trade data also. The advanced chart on the top has the volume drawn with a line! Where have they seen that?!

It is obvious they have never seen a real trading platform before, so don't wait for the options and margin trading on mtgox (they probably don't even know how options trading works anyway). Their idea of security is limiting costumers' withdrawal sizes, lol. If I deposit $50.000 I expect be able to withdraw MY money whenever I want! BTC or USD, it doesn't matter it si my money.

Mtgox is still bad. I try to use other exchanges as much as possible.

lol at trader woes. Using Bitcoin for trading is childish because it's not in the spirit for which Bitcoin was developed. Go speculate oil so that transportation costs skyrocket, or trade corn so poor children starve. This attitude towards Bitcoin is pathetic. I don't mind if MtGox makes a few bucks this way to help fund their development, but hopefully this trading phase will end soon and they will address the real strengths of Bitcoin.

Speculation works in both ways. I guess it is OK to short oil and push the price down but you must never buy it. Or any other commodity.

lol at bitcoin spirit. Where in the bitcoin protocol is written that speculating on the price of bitcoin is wrong?

You need liquid markets if you want real bitcoin businesses. And you need derivatives for those businesses to hedge their exposure.

It may not be written into the protocol, but for many years speculation (especially on margin) was illegal and for arguably good reasons. It still is in many countries. Save the economic mumbo jumbo for the pseudo-scientist believers. It's a zero-sum game. Businesses are irrelevant to markets, they are only one type of production instrument. Markets existed long before the internet and even electricity. Even ancient religions preclude making money just by trading money. THE ONLY THING THAT PROGRESSES SOCIETY IS TECHNOLOGY. Bitcoin is ALL ABOUT new technology.

@PaxumChris

Welcome to "Our World" when it comes to Mt.Gox. I couldn't believe the response from MtGox_Adam earlier in this thread to my complaint about exactly this. Mt.Gox's customer service is pathetic.

Now that you've made a post here you might get a response.

Just let me know how long it takes for you to get an answer from us, when you email info@mtgox.com.

As for Paxum, I've talked a couple of time with Ruth, who said maybe we'd be able to get a different account to send wires to, but we never had any update since then.

Selling info is totally wrong and not the type of behavior that they engage in. They prefer to give your unencrypted data to third parties who are then hacked and get your info released publicly for free, which is an incredible value.

I would think MT would be able to think a few steps ahead in the chess game to not do this....

I wouldn't be surprised if someone (government) has an identity that only exists on MtGox and waits to see it in the wild....

They would use that information to shut down MtGox...  I am sure MT knows this...

The excuse of a security breach only works so many times... before a pattern emerges__


So, it would be highly doubtful that what you suggest is going on.

As we said here to you already here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=52846.msg636566#msg636566, a LOT is going to happen and show Mid January, so what you see here is, once again, the tip of the iceberg and the features that will be announced will really change a lot of things for Bitcoin.

Resurrecting this thread... so mid January has come and gone.  Any idea what these new features are and when will we actually be seeing them?

Oh, well you are right, we are finishing up some stuff, but since we disclosed this at CES, I can use update this thread too. We are working on many things some of them you have seen already and includes

1. Our transparency Program https://mtgox.com/press_release_20120201.html
2. Brick & Mortar / E-Commerce solutions. We are polishing a few things but we will launch pretty soon our full Merchant solutions with VERY competitive fees ;-).
3. More trading tools. A few things will come for BTC Traders.

Cheers

Why do you only offer an iPhone app for a jailbroken phone. Will the Apple Store not approve your app?

Exactly! Trading Bitcoin is apparently a NO-NO in Apple's world. Still there are some other ways that we are working on.

Mt Gox should design a website specifically for mobile devices. Google and Yahoo do this and it works great. If Mt Gox had this you'd just open the Safari browser on the iPhone and go to MtGox.com. The mobile site would also work great on Android devices and other mobile devices. But the biggest plus would be no approval from Apple would be needed.
