Bitstamp down for last 3 hr?

Also the bid sum is impressive. About time it increases I suppose, though.

Probably a stupid question, but why isn't there arbitrage between btce and stamp?  Like a 10$ difference (technically less than 5%).

Or for that matter, btce and coinbase, with their 1% withdrawal fee.

Because Coinbase only works within the US, and BTC-E explicitly DOESN'T work within the US, and using Bitstamp/BTC-E arb in Euro zone is probably very expensive considering all the wire fees, and the time it take to complete said wires. I mean, in the Euro Zone you could try and do it, but you'd need to do it with a huge amount to make up for the $30 wire fees in each direction, and you're effectively short Bitcoin while the wires are going on, sooooo....

BTC-e does work with the US.

Bitstamp and BTC-e are very easy to use in the eurozone, both support SEPA deposits and withdraws (wire fees aren't necessary).

Also so far as wire time, it takes 1 night for a wire to clear...

None of what you are saying here is accurate...

Maybe the lack of bids on bitstamp near market price, giving more slippage on sells, therefore much less margin.

How Ripple Rips you: "The founders of Ripple Labs created 100 billion XRP at Ripple's inception. No more can be created according to the rules of the Ripple protocol. Of the 100 billion created, 20 billion XRP were retained by the creators, seeders, venture capital companies and other founders. The remaining 80 billion were given to Ripple Labs. Ripple Labs intends to distribute and sell 55 of that 80 billion XRP to users and strategic partners. Ripple Labs also had a giveaway of under 200 million XRP (0.002% of all XRP) via World Community Grid that was later discontinued.[29] Ripple Labs will retain the remaining 25 billion"

BTC-e charges a 1% fee to wire money. I.E. on $50k thats a $500 fee! And then Coinbase charges 1%. There are also BTC-E trading fees of around .5%.  So that 2.5% off the top. Right now you can buy on BTC at $175 and sell on Coinbase for $181.

So on 50k you would have $49250 which would buy you 281.43 BTC. On Coinbase you would have 278.61 to sell after fees for a total $50,429.

$429 profit minus lets say $45 in wire fees = $384.

That profit is not worth the risk of a market movement or the trouble of sending 50K.

I don't know the reason für USD, but the € bitcoin price is too high for arbitrage. The best arbitrage in this case would be, to trade ur USD in btc-e via bitcoin to € in btc-e. Then send these € to bitstamp, convert them into USD and send the USD back to btc-e Wink

but this is not possible because of the high fees, just mention the min. 100€ withdraw fee from btc-e O.ô

Almost no sell orders, but everyone wants to buy. Makes for an interesting asymmetric graph Smiley

Wonder if it will go lower... Should I buy a little now or hold off for another $10...

I missed today's (probably: flash) crash, but I traded during the SR one, and I wasn't very happy with how bitstamp handled the large volume... my order got through in the end, but their website went belly up several times in between, and overall, the experience was extremely laggy.

Preliminary remark: I like bitstamp. Good support, decent communication, I trust them.

Problem: They're not fully prepared to handle the increased volume that headed their way in the past months, IMO.

Question: Can we, the customers, do something about it? Make it known that we'll continue to support them, but we expect better performance and reaction to events than, say, mtgox?

Any suggestions?

This. I just moved from gox and stamp worked okay in last flash crash (from 205) but now it's not working... It's crucial that the trading works when there's money to be made. Now trading is just shooting limits with just ticker.

edit. I made a support ticket, you all should do it also.

what's up with bitstamp?
constant server lag up to 1 hour  Shocked according to http://trading.i286.org/bitstamp/?item=btc&currency=usd#
trading not looking to be stopped though, price is changing...and I could login

I wouldn't recommend trading with that huge lag.

will "getting stamped" become an expression soon?  Smiley

I withdrawn all my coins from this shithole - unfortunately there is NO exchange safe/efficient enough for trading, I will use them only when I want to capitulate.

Not worth the risk (burned @ MtGox, BTC24, BCCentral and now Bitstamp is shaky).

Or is it just FUD? Except for an occasional high-load hiccough, Bitstamp has been pretty solid.
