Is it possible to create an open source Bitcoin exchange, so we don't have to rely on any central authority (e.g. Mt Gox)?

What name would you give to the smallest unit of bitcoin (0.00000001)? sat. What name would you give to 100 sats? bit. 1 bit = 1 uBTC. 1,000,000 bits = 1 BTC. It's bits

I would like that to be an option, but I kind of enjoy the multiple exchanges as well.  Keeps the market itself harder to do an overall tracking.

Open source and central authority are two very different things ... I find that all transactions are very much out in the open, so i have no problem with multiple exchanges. (Good for competition and failover)

MT Gox is the "de-facto" central authority, but anybody can compete with them, and that's good (and hard).

If you want to start a exchange, you can... as far as you can get the currencies for exchange, and be trustable for the users.

To get a good place in any market is good to be there soon and work hard to get a good and trustable name.

I guess that is something of the past.

Haha... Shit happens!

You fight hard for credibility and in a minute you lose all you earned in months of good work.

Interesting to see what would they do now to restore trust...
