I've seen all sorts of talk about the amatuer quality of current bitcoin infrastructure and tend to agree, with the obvious solution being virwox. They have years of previous experience in trading virtual commodities.
However all the recommendations I've seen involve start up operations that are likely to end up in over their heads very quickly.
I've seen talk of 500k btc being compromised, and at 10USD that is worth $5,000,000 so i'm thinking a more stable company with a history of success and some financial capital to back its existence is a much more sensible option than any of the brand new start up trading outfits that exist in bitcoin land at the moment.
However all the talk I see is about all these sites I've never heard of before. This leads me to question the true motives of those involved with this whole bitcoin roller coaster. I would really like to hear any justifications for the current alternatives being offered though.
