Experienced the same kind of issue. Transferred BTC to my bitstamp account but my account still shows 0 BTC!

Is this a familiar issue?

Thanks!

How long have you been waiting?

I'd like to use this opportunity to ask a question that bothered me for a few days now:

I read only good things about bitstamp, and was pretty determined to sign up with them and start trading there. But then I looked at their 'about' page, noticed they're a company based in Slovenia (so far, no problem), using a bank account at a Slovenian bank for fiat transfers.

Here's the problem. Slovenian banks are under some stress, as a result of the Europe-wide banking crisis. Maybe not as bad as, say, banks in Cyprus, but probably not risk free like most banks in, say, Germany or France either. Here's the OECD report talking about the Slovenian banking problems: http://www.oecd.org/eco/surveys/slovenia-2013.htm

What I'm wondering obviously is, how safe is my money at the bank that bitstamp uses? What's the point of trading bitcoins if I am at risk of losing my fiat funds when the associated bank goes bancrupt.

Not sure which Bitcoin wallet to use? I suggest to take a look at Electrum.
Electrum is an open-source lightweight client: user friendly, fast, and one of the safest ways to store, send or receive bitcoins.
For executables (Windows, OSX, Linux, Android), source code and documentation, see the Electrum homepage.

For a day right now. My transaction has at least been confirmed for 50 times. So my BTCs are gone but not credited to my account.

You are absolutely right, so my advice: don't hold too much fiat and a lot of Bitcoin  Grin

I have also transferred my money on the 10th and transferwise confirmed that the payment was sent out and it should have been received by 12PM that day. The BitStamp account still shows 0 - am getting increasingly worried.

I am in the same situation. Transferwise confirmed the payment completed on wednesday but has not yet appeared in my account. Support tickets have been ignored. What is going on. This is a non trivial amount of money

My issues are solved by Bitstamp. I think that with a little patience you will be much more comfortable.

Cheers.

I am happy to be patient if they would communicate with us and keep us informed

It seems that communication seems to be the trouble, along with a very turbulent couple days on the market.

I am happy that I didn't use them... although after the recent drop (Even though I still made a very nice profit) I decided that I don't like to gamble nor am I very good with it, although I had incredibly strong urge that my greed prevented me to sell hours before the crash
