What alternatives are out there and what are the cons/pros? This is my humble opinion I am wondering which is the best/most secure one as of the moment?

BTCT
-Legally registered in Belize which actually might be bad
-Founders are trying to escape liability by claiming "Virtual goods utilized on this site are for entertainment and educational purposes only."
-Could potentially cause a loss of funds and it would be hard to make a case
-Design is bad and hard to navigate
MPEX
-Owner seems to be not the brightest and a loose cannon
-3rd graders HTML
BitFunder
-Lowest 24h trade volume?
-The only normal one?

Are there any cons I'm missing with bitfunder?

I don't use them, but according to someone from the ASICMiner auction yesterday, BTCT lets you take your shares out and convert them to direct ownership.

That would sort the liabilities problem since you then own shares straight from the company.

Awwwww, shucks.   Embarrassed


More seriously, I think BTCT is the best equipped to protect your investment, with complete asset holder lists being sent out several times a day to asset issuers, available at any time to issuers via JSON api, and available at any time in the website.

The "Virtual" aspect is all of the sites if you read the fine print and/or forum statements by the owners.  Wink

Cheers.


I'm not a Coinbase fan -- I placed a buy order, they took the funds out of my account, then a week later the price went up and they canceled the buy and closed my account.  You've been warned.  Use a different exchange.

You forgot to mention the 30 btc sign-up charge to use MPEx.

There is nothing wrong with the html on MPEx, the choice to not use fancy css is just a style preference of the guy who made it. It is meant to be functional, efficient, reliable, etc.; it is designed for function not form.

Between BitFunder and Btct, I prefer btct. You say the design is bad and hard to navigate, I think the design is just fine, he has put many function in at the request of people who actually use the site. Specifically, I like the charts better on BTCT, and they send out email notifications when orders are filled or when you receive dividends.

If you want to see the difference between the two platforms, consider the pass-throughs to S.BITBET, which is traded on MPEx. There are equivalent pass-throughs on bitfunder and btct.co, but the price is much lower on bitfunder because there just isn't as much volume there.

And it is not clear what you mean by 'normal'? What are you defining as normal?
