UPDATE:
My withdrawal finally got completed (after more than 48 hours), but now bitcoin-central is down again.
I still had some funds there which I was not yet able to withdraw.

Bitcoin-Central still down as of now (for me at least).
Anyone heard an explanation for this downtime yet?

Starting to freak/piss me off i have a non trivial amount of euro there because of there "we are insured thing" but it looks like nothing is working properly.
No answer on the help desk for 2 week now (yeah 1 week crash i know but still).
Sepa Withdraw also blocked for 2 weeks.

Continuous crash.

The cost of mediation increases transaction costs, limiting the
minimum practical transaction size and cutting off the possibility for small casual transactions

I believe they are doing what they can. They are under DDOS now, you can obtain alternative link to the site if you are verified. All info from https://twitter.com/Bitcoin_Central

Great! I just checked all three of my IW URLs, and each showing O BTC residing in wallets of which addresses weren't supplied. Upon refreshing one of the pages, I'm once again greeted with the static home page, indicative of doing the same for the other two.

Madness!

You guys are so lucky! I don't even get a 404 error, just the endless fruit-loop (actually stops at the static page, but that wouldn't have worked as humor).

Oh boy, is this for real?, i mean, post like this can really damage the confidence of the people.

i sincerely hope they are upgrading their security and hiring more people,

just look at what happend with bitcoin-24, it's really bad news, specially for the ones that bought bitcoin at 180€

i guess i will withdraw my 2 coins to a coldwallet and come back in a few years.

Any news on how many claims are coming in Boussac?

Also, have you got the details of the crime reported with BEFTI? I need to pass the info to my insurance provider.

Thanks

I have started a new thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=177317.0 about Boussac's refusal to provide the police report reference number.

I invite anyone who shares my point of view to provide comment there.
