Never a dull day at MtGox HQ. The DDoSers must be milking every last chance before the big exchanges at CoinLab and CoinSetter arrive, and before BitStamp gets bigger. Once there is more than one big exchange, DDoS of any one will have much less effect. Meanwhile the entire system grows stronger every time it is attacked, with the attackers being rewarded for their services in strengthening the system, effectively paving the way for further growth.

Without the attacks that have been occurring at a billion-dollar market cap, Bitcoin wouldn't be ready for the kinds of attacks that will come at ten and a hundred billion dollars.

Can't mention the DDOS scapegoat enough?
They simply pull the plug if a selloff is on the horizon.

Nobody except the suckers who can't get out believes it any more.

And exactly how safe would you feel with a sizeable balance sitting in a bank in Slovenia, waiting to trade ?
Bitstamp actually uses one of the larger italian banks, called UniCredit. but you are right, no bank in europe is actually "safe".

I can't agree that a sell off was on the horizon. There was certainly a downtrend for the last 20 or so hours though, but it was gradual enough.

They might have better tools of predicting that though.
A watchlist for the largest BTC holdings and when they log in?
I don't really like coming up with stuff they can potentially do, but just taking their word for granted isn't either for me.

What kind of sell off do you think they are trying to prevent though? There have been quite a few ~BTC5k sell offs in the past few days that recovered fine

My Euro transfer went to Slovenia. Do they then transfer it to a USD account in Italy ?

Well according to this the ones significantly above 5k. I don't know any exact figures but if you look at the volume of the flash crash from the top there must have been some serious coin involved.

Stop whining and use another exchange already.

What other exchanges are there?!

Btce is infested with java exploit links and its based in russia. Could use Bitstamp but they might be overwhelmed and get their bank account shut just as it happened with bitfloor, bitcoin24.

Check out CampBX. Many funding options, even USPS money order by mail. They also seem to be in tune with [albeit vague existing] regulatory requirements so are less like to be randomly shut down than some of these fly-by-night new exchanges.

Low volume right now but I expect as the "new kid on the block" they will swallow up a lot of ex-Goxs and ex-Bitfloors.

I guess anything's possible. But considering all the problems in their trading platform, I tend to doubt they have the capability to predict crashes.

Interesting, but that is not today's attack.
Yes, i noticed it.
Today's one is probably bigger, IMO.
