I was wondering if it would be possibly to have the option for 2 factor Authentication on the forum as many of our accounts are worth a decent value and it would help keep transactions safe from hacking impostures.

I have not seen a forum use Authy or Google Authenticator yet but I can't see it being a hard thing to add and I do not see a negative, if this has been suggested before and I just couldn't find it please let me know why this hasn't happened yet, thanks!


Also: We could have little 2FA badges on our profiles for those who enable it so others know for trades.

It's coming with the new forum. Several options will be available. See here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=523070.0

Fancy Authentication

In addition to normal password authentication, the forum should support various kinds of of alternative authentication. At least password auth, email verification, secret questions, OpenID, PGP, OpenVPN (automatic creation of subnets + IP source verification), and Bitcoin address signing should be supported, with multiple allowable credentials for each auth type. Users should have the option of requiring any combination of these auth types. Like "pgp OR (password AND OpenID)". And users should be able to require that changes to some or all auth types as well as the required combination of types not take effect for some configurable number of days. This allows for different types of recovery methods.

Will the new forum be a traditional update, a redesign or a clean sweep? Will member accounts with post history all be transferred over and the trust system as well?

It's a brand new forum software built from scratch, and nothing will be lost and all ranks/posts etc will be transferred over.
