I'm wondering what the community thinks!

Is there a new Gox bound to happen? What is something you have solid suspicions of?

What I feel is that Bitcoin has become safer and less susceptible over time.

Before anybody echos my sentiment, it has to be Cryptsy.

at first i thought it was bitstamp, and in fact an hacked did steal a great amount of coins, but right now a random "okcoin" or other big chinese exchange are on my thought as a next candidate

crypsty seems only to have problem handling their furious overboarded security

Bitcoin users are aware of what happened during MtGox time so think a lot of us don't put their eggs to one basket only.  To which I believe Crypsy can't gain much if they turned scam these days, they should instead go legit and provide better services for long term to gain more.

What if they got their funds stolen and are trying to hide the fact that that happened, just like gox. Polo had like 12% of users bitcoins stolen and they announced it immediately. They payed back the funds pretty quickly by upping the fee. If cryptsy is hiding the fact that they had users funds stolen, it's pretty bad.

No one had doubt about what happen to Mt Gox since the big thing it happened. At the contrary. Everyone believed on this business so mach that leave there hundreds and thousands bitcoins. When the value of bitcoin was 1000=1200 us dollar one. So it will (must) be even today. Cannot be known such things before the happening of those. Otherwise the people will act and nothing bad will happen. As for your feeling about bitcoin I think you are right. Bitcoin yet is the currency of Dark Web but day after day are becoming even the currency of the Light and the Open Web. I think that this process will go more forward and will have more speed more the various countries will regulate, legalize or accept it.

what volume cryptsy has? how many coins could be lost?

Not nearly as much as Mt Gox had. I am guessing it has about the same volume as BTER has had before the hack. After all this is an alt coin exchange, not the main Bitcoin exchange that whole world is using. I am guessing that when Cryptsy goes down, it will lose about 5,000 BTCs, more or less!

That's still a considerable sum - at today's market rates it's about 1.8 million USD. Exchanges have always bothered me - unlike traditional financial institutions they have more incentive to scam (usually because control over assets is exerted by one or few people) and that there is no legal recourse should they scam. Not to mention, it's not worth the effort to try and recover a few thousand dollars.

It is a lot of money, I agree, but it's still much less than what Mt Gox has lost. Then again, this is pretty much what one big, serious alt coin exchange holds at any moment.

I just wish that people who have their funds on Cryptsy would realize that this is a fast sinking ship and that they would withdraw asap what can be withdrawn. Like this, when they go down, they would hold as less funds as possible!

The next gox wont happen on that scale ever again, gox had like 90% of the market.  Small scale versions seem to have happened, just watch out for who owns the exchange and how it runs.

Definitely not Cryptsy. Too small.
For a major effect like MtGox, it would have to be one of the major Chinese Exchanges.
Anything else is just petty cash.

Yeah, well... I'm gonna go build my own blockchain, with blackjack and hookers. In fact, forget the blockchain!

I see from another post,the next mt gox is crptsy and kraken,for crptsy is has been nearly true, but kraken is not yet. Lest wait for another real news about next gox.

Kraken is a trusted and well respected exchange. I have not seen any shady thing comming from their exchange even once. Cryptsy on the other hand is a different story. I see a lot people have complaints about not being able to withdraw their coins. It's by far not a second MtGox, but Cryptsy is up to something.

Cryptsy and Kraken aren't nearly large enough to be the next MtFux.

It will be OKCoin.

Cryptsy, been holding some withdrawals since August, suddenly loads of wallets offline or in 'maintenance mode' after what seems like they were arbitrage trading, was all good til BTC dropped and now they are on the wrong side. They are only allowing altcoin withdrawals they have heaps in reserve of, support tickets are going unanswered and the ones dealt with are closed without an answer... so... That's my opinion / facts/

Everybody is saying that Cryptsy will be the next MTGox, but you will never know until it gets there. I have always used Cryptsy and had several issues, as so I did in other exchanges. Whatever... just to say, the next MTGox will be anyone of the operating exchanges. I don't actually think that Cryp will be the next since they are struggling to comply with all the regulations... so they would get themselves a huge problem if they went rougue.

is this really true, where is the source? i have always dismissed bitstamp as exchange, never liked if this is true, i'll put them in the trash can directly

also they might be in touch with coinbase, because they are pro bitcoin xt aswell

cryptsy is by a huge distance not mtgox 2.0, but they are surely going to cause a lot problems if they don't care about their custommers. i hope they will release the funds of the people that are waiting for their cashout. then there isn't a problem anymore.

I dont think Craptsy could be new MtGox. At time ppl were "goxed", MtGox had huge market share (i think allmost 70%) so that shit cant happen again. Craptsy will most possibly turn to scam but not nearly that big, they are almost irrelevant.
I share you opinion.  And this may sound a little gruesome but I think that Mt.Gox case actually helped bitcoin community. Fail of Mt.Gox raised awareness caused by fail of the biggest exchange of our time.
People are not so trustworthy towards centralized bitcoin services anymore and usually don't keep massive amount of BTC directly deposited.
