What happened to Britcoin? Is the exchange still online? Or did it get taken down?

That's weird - I was using it fine from my home network just now, but get problems now that I've switched to my mobile network. Soime kind of DNS thing? Can't nip back home easily, unfortunately.

traceroute shows a route right to it, but then nothing from the server itself.

Looks like it's dropped off the Internet rather than been overloaded.

Perhaps it's gone over its monthly bandwidth allowance?

Its redirecting to a dodgy holding page and the registration information was just updated today. I would say either the domain was sold or hijacked

Britcoin is coming back up after a lot of testing. Also, the mininum transaction level will be siginifantly lowered in a matter of minutes. The bids will be matching imminently as well.

We will be daily processing withdaws and deposits from now on.

Please do not send Bitcoins to the old address. It is making the accounting more difficult.

As of this post, we have now responded to every email now.

As for how the trades are processed. It is exchange at the price that you put in and then worked backwards. It is not the most ideal or efficient manner but it is still fair and there are no funds missing. This is something we will be changing soon however.

"DO NOT SEND TO THE OLD ADDRESS"
...

Registrant info changed, domain acting weirdly...

taken over/hacked?

(overly paranoid?)

Everything is fine, but using the old address is making accounting difficult for
us since we migrated the servers.

The domain went down because of the ownership transfer mechanism which you can
read more about in the main Britcoin thread.
