News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

We need to see a forex exchange allow bitcoins and then the MtGox problem is solved.

Yeah, you'd see volume fly then. God knows what would happen to the exchange rate. But is it a currency or commodity? Gold and silver aren't traded on currency exchanges.....

Gold and silver aren't traded on currency exchanges.....

Are you certain about that?

XAU, XAG, XPT, and XPD -- gold, silver, platinum and palladium.  The only commodities with official currency designations.  And gold and silver are almost always available wherever you get forex quotes (XAU/USD, XAG/USG).

Tony Fell, Chairman Capital Markets, Royal Bank of Canada said in Feb 2007, "At Royal Bank of Canada, we trade gold bullion off our foreign exchange desks rather than our commodity desks, because that's what it is -- a global currency, the only one that is freely tradable and unencumbered by vast quantities of sovereign debt and prior obligations."

Ah, I stand corrected. So we can trade as a currency, commodity and barter!! The best of all worlds.

"ButtSec

Oh hai. We've gained access to some Bitcoin exchange sites. Obviously this includes Mt Gox, which is currently down. Hm wonder why?

Here at Buttsec we're fans of Bitcoin, but we must get the message out there that security is sorely lacking on many of the exchange sites! We will speak with some of these sites in the coming days. If your users aren't given answers, expect some information to make it to the public! ;-)

Yours truly, Buttsec

I love that somebody donated 0.00000001 to that address.  Even at the highest bitcoins have ever traded, that is still measured in one-hundred thousandths of a cent!
How can you see that someone donated that much? Is there a site where you can track transactions?
