Just a stupid question...so where does Mt. Gox get all of the bitcoins from?
The grue lurks in the darkest places of the earth. Its favorite diet is adventurers, but its insatiable appetite is tempered by its fear of light. No grue has ever been seen by the light of day, and few have survived its fearsome jaws to tell the tale.

Mt. Gox is an exchange. The bitcoins come from people who want to sell, and flow through Mt. Gox to people who want to buy.

Right, understand that you're not buying coins FROM Mt. Gox (or TradeHill.com), they are the marketplace that connects sellers to buyers.

Tradehill.com referral code: TH-R1494
Please consider using it if I've said something useful!
