I really don't understand roman's behaviour. From what perspective does it make sense to stop communicating like this? Is he just disillusioned?

Maybe he is no longer in control.  Has anyone been in touch with him directly.  He used to respond promptly to support@bitfloor.com emails.

That's my guess.  Heck, if I had $250k that I had to recover through monthly profits in the 4 digits, I'd probably be pretty discouraged as well.

It's really, really sad.

Yes very sad. This exchange seems to be dying the death of a thousand cuts. Let's review current unfavorable recent changes to the site:

  • Currently can't withdraw any cash
  • Currently can't make cash deposits
  • No longer able to view market depth data on site

I don't know how it would be possible to continue to run a market/exchange under these conditions. Liquidity will continue to evaporate.

If they were indefinite, maybe, but since you'll be able to withdraw in a few days, things will be back to normal.

Dealing with these problems is inevitable in the war against banking cartels. It's no fault of the site operator.

How about an enhanced rebate for offer providers that comes from their on hold balance?

I emailed him the other day and he was responsive and indicated he was working hard to get cash deposits going again.

FYI, BitFloor support wrote to me saying that USD withdrawals via ACH are back to normal. That's good news.

That's great news! Explains the really steep and narrow market graph this morning I guess. Someone should remind Roman to post an update on his Google+ blog.

the bitfloor blog hasn't been updated in over a month. Is there any news about cash deposits coming back soon or the frozen bitcoin beginning to release?

Has anyone dealt with the ING P2P deposits? Is it any hassle to use?

I have an ING Direct Electric Orange (EO) checking account. The P2P payment service is easy to use, no hassle once you have the EO account set up. Even if you don't keep any money in the EO account (no minimum balance required), transferring USD from another bank to EO to BitFloor is faster than transferring USD from another bank to Dwolla to Mt Gox. If you do keep some USD in the EO account, then transfers are even quicker. I actually like the EO checking account and replaced 1 of my other checking accounts with EO. Another comparative advantage is that P2P transfers are free and Dwolla costs 25 cents per transfer (for transfers of more than $10).

If anyone else is going to open an ING account, pm me your email so I can send you a referral code.  With it, if you start the account with at least $250 you get $25 free.  Oh, and I'll get $10 to spend on my bitcoin habit Smiley.

Happy to say that my first chunk of bitcoin on hold from the theft has finally come out of hold. About 1.7% but it's a good start. Cheers to Roman for a great effort bringing the website back up.

Good to hear!

Have ACH transfers been resumed? The bank account used to conduct them was apparently migrated about 2 weeks ago and so they were held. I had mine cancelled (Roman was very quick with this btw) and withdrawn through other means but would like to know if ACH is back up and running.
