Dear Members of the Bitcoin Community, Customers, Partners, and Friends!
Many of you are aware that TradeHill opened up last week just before ‘Black Friday’. To say the least, it kept us extremely busy. Now that we are caught up, we thought to formally introduce ourselves.

But first, our principles. Summed up by the following quote:

“Truth — more precisely, an accurate understanding of reality—
is the essential foundation for producing good outcomes.”
Ray Dalio, Bridgewater Associates.

In the spirit of the above words, we promise our full skills, abilities and values to ensure accuracy, responsibility, and honesty in dealing with each other, our customers, our partners, and the world.

If you hope to become the go-to place to trade BTC, I sure hope you upgrade your servers to handle high volumes of traffic.

Im not sure why anyone would want to, but just in case, I humbly and very gratefully accept donations at: 1Kn6NFFE4EqrhN1pgBDoBQEvSA5c3tdqhi

If you are half the honorable people you claim to be, you will do what you can to help mtgox sort out their issues.  There is plenty of room for you, mtgox and probably 10 other exchanges in this market.  What hurts mtgox, hurts bitcoin and hurts you too.

(gasteve on IRC) Does your website accept cash? https://bitpay.com

Nice timing. So good, in fact, that your site can't handle the traffic. Smiley

now, if only your site wasn't useless to me as a non-US citizen without a US bank account.

Synereo: a completely decentralized and distributed application ecosystem.

Beware of he who would deny you access to information, for in his heart, he dreams himself your master.

if tradehill accepts SEPA transfers,i can start using it. otherwise, i'll stick to mtgox

people need to understand that not everybody is from USA.

if Tradehill starts to accept EU deposits/withdraws, i'll use it for sure

We can accept international wires. If you want to buy Bitcoin with any currency.
Go to your bank, buy USD and then wire it in.
SEPA is coming ASAP, we are growing as fast as possible.
We don't want to over extend ourselves and fail. We would much rather provide a reliable service.

In regards to the servers we're on it. It's one thing to grow quickly and another to have the entire Bitcoin world try to log in at once.

If BTC is to take off, it needs to be able to be traded QUICKLY. Im glad to hear you are working on the servers. I hope you do get them sorted. Any plans for adding an option for faster funding? Waiting days for a bank transfer isnt cool, either.

Are you guys learning from Mtgox's mistakes/shortcomings? I foresee Tradehill increasing in traffic and volume in the next few days with what's been going on with Mtgox. This means you guys will be the new targets on the block.

And be prepared for website scaling.  Grin

TradeHill - Given the same issue as MtGox (a compromised large account), how would you deal with it and protect the marketplace?

https://support.mtgox.com/entries/20208066-huge-bitcoin-sell-off-due-to-a-compromised-account-rollback

Huge Bitcoin sell off due to a compromised account - rollback

Mark Karpeles
posted this on Jun-20 04:07
The bitcoin will be back to around 17.5$/BTC after we rollback all trades that have happened after the huge Bitcoin sale that happened on June 20th near 3:00am (JST).

Service should be back by June 20th 10:00am (JST, 01:00am GMT) with all the trades reversed and accounts available.

One account with a lot of coins was compromised and whoever stole it (using a HK based IP to login) first sold all the coins in there, to buy those again just after, and then tried to withdraw the coins. The $1000/day withdraw limit was active for this account and the hacker could only get out with $1000 worth of coins.

Apart from this no account was compromised, and nothing was lost. Due to the large impact this had on the Bitcoin market, we will rollback every trade which happened since the big sale, and ensure this account is secure before opening access again.

If we receive a wire before 5PM EST our bank will normally clear it the same day and we can credit it the same day. We can't say this 100% as it's possible for delays in the banks but we have had a lot come in very quickly. We're hiring people as fast as reasonably possible. We want to maintain good customer service and don't feel it's fair to deploy anyone on their own that isn't completely familiar with Bitcoin and how we operate.

In regards to security our lead coder could speak more specifically but I do know that he is taking every precaution and security is paramount. You will see a few changes soon that should make you feel more secure as well.

Regards,
Jered

This might be a completely ridiculous question, but here it goes anyway....

Did you have anything to do with the Mt Gox crash?

Your timing of officially introducing yourself on the forum is just WAY too perfect to think that it was a coincidence. The only other possibilities I can think of at this point is that you are just sitting here waiting for Mt Gox to mess up or you just happen to see the big screw up and you rush your introduction.

Well I give you kudos for jumping on the obvious opportunity here, and I hope the Tradehill leadership stays in contact with the community like this. Looking forward to seeing the improvements and hopefully making a buck.
