I buy with EUR and other currencies at a fair market price when you want to sell.  See http://bitmynt.no/eurprice.pl
Warning: "Bitcoin" XT, Classic, Unlimited and the likes are scams. Don't use them, and don't listen to their shills.

Well, I had sent some BTC to Bitcoin-Central and it had not appeared in my account there after a while so I raised a support ticket.
A little while later when I tried to check my account again I got this "Maintenance" message.

Checking back up the blockchain from the link you provided, sure enough I found my transaction destination address.
Let's just hope these big transactions are just BitCoin-Central making safe their wallets.  Undecided

Sincerely hope that's the case, 4.3mil is a lot of money.

Surprised there is no announcement on the forum about this.

Me too. I did search but found nothing, so started this thread.

I'm crossing my fingers they sort this out without a significant loss.
