Oh mother of Satoshi...

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Wow you're right: http://bitcoinity.org/markets/btce/EUR

Some people got very lucky, one person very sad. Seems like he lost 'only' 200 coins though.

Probably some account got hacked, had mail verification activated, so the thief couldn't get the BTC out, so he sold them cheap to himself.

All previous versions of currency will no longer be supported as of this update

LOL

Happened to me other day, accidently bought BTC at current rates instead of sell BTC at current rates, but quickly realized it and re-sold the BTC I accidently bought, probably for 1-2% loss.

That must have ruined someone's morning.

I don't understand why he didn't get filled at the best price buyers were willing to pay.

Whoever implemented that trading engine was just taking a short cut instead of putting his clients first. I wouldn't want to trade there after seeing this.

that can't be true. He would have first filled all the buy orders above 1 Euro, which would have been very many. He would have lost coins, but he could have bought back in. BTC-E trade system fills the orders before you first.

more or less retired.

This, I did that before, you can even click the calculate button and it will take into account all standing orders and the amount of the orders to tell you how much you get in total.

Obviously not much of a trading "engine" then, is it? Tongue

If BTC-e doesn't trade from the top of the stack then it shouldn't even be called an exchange.  I mean seriously I can put an order on MtGox (or bitfloor, or bitstamp, etc) right now to sell x BTC @ $1.00 USD and I will get the best bid.  Now granted if x is very  large I will burn through the stack and drop the price but no trading engine anywhere for any reason should execute at less than the best price available.

A limit order of X @ $Y doens't mean trade X @ $Y.  It means trade UP TO X at a price NO WORSE THAN $Y.
