Just send them to MtGox or a private online wallet (like MyBitcoin).

Or set up a wallet on another computer which isn't connected to the internet. I wouldn't trust all my cash in one site if I had a lot of it.

Do not use MyBitcoin! I sent them a message about a lost password more than a week ago. I still have not received a reply. The only way to contact them is through the online system they provide (which I used) and apparently they don't even check that.

Wait, how did you use the internal messaging system without your password?

Something stinks.

This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

I just encrypt the wallet.dat file onto a cheap 128 meg thumbdrive then put it into my safety deposit box.  Destroying the unencrypted copies on my PC is also necessary.

Ok, that secures the wallet but spontaneous withdraws get complicated  Wink. So there is no Bitcoin Bank just wallets? Do they have any kind of assurance in case of errors?

What kind of assurance can you give yourself?

I was curious about this question too.  I am aware of websites like mybitcoin.com, but what about an insured bank where you would be reimbursed if the bank was "robbed" or destroyed?

Someone has to start a bitcoin insurance company first.  Have at it.

I would create encrypted drive in a file container with software like truecrypt, with long enough pass phrase, make a new wallet on this drive, send bitcoins to that wallet, unmount encrypted drive, make a few backup copies of encrypted file container and put them in different places including online storage, just in case.
