I was under the impression that Blockchain was one of the more 'professional' outfits out there.

Professional thieves in my opinion. I no longer will do business with them. Evey time I bought BTC from them I always received less coins than they said I would get. My wallet went down in value a fraction of coins more than once.

So far I haven't had any trouble with Coinbase and recommend them only.

I know of many who claim to have their accounts hacked with BTC-E. So I never will do a large trade on their site.

Just take your money else where. Tell others and report them to proper authorities.

mishrahsigni, do you use windows? 2 factor with android phone?

And this are the most honest terms and conditions with bitcoin related business I've seen:

"1. We (BitFunder) do not accept responsibility for anything.
2. WARNING: Use at your own risk.
3. You must agree to 1 and 2.

Honestly, with the btc community and how btc works, anything other than that, is a lie in our opinion.
We do promise to list all holdings by the shareholders by providing a public btcaddress/asset/shares list live 24/7. (Click Here)
This leaves our liabilities down to just BTC held in accounts with us.
We will do everything in our power to keep things as easy, painless, accurate and as fair as possible.
We promise to deliver the services of this site as accurately as possible and to the best of our ability to the users and to continue to try to grow with the community."

** And the latest, my double password protected account at blockchain was emptied of all bitcoins two weeks ago and my ticket asking them if anything had gone wrong is still in the "This request is awaiting assignment to a support agent" queue


does this happen to be a "brain wallet"? If so, your passphrase is probably not as secure as you think it is.

I wish the FBI would figure it out. But they're probably to busy false flagging and spying on innocent citizens.

You most likely have either a password problem or a computer security problem.  The common thing between the three services is you.


hmmm... I have also lived in Italy, Spain, California, NYC and Argentina... all of whom have gone bankrupt AFTER I lived there!... Again the common thing between all these bankrupt states is ME.  my God!  I am the Grim Reaper of economies!!  I mean, this must be the case because, following your flawless reasoning, no one else you has had money in bitcoin exchanges has lost any money, and the polish government closing down the bitcoun-24, well, that would absolutely be my doing only if i really was the dark could of financial doom.... unless you can provide another reason as to hoe my being me caused the German and Polish officials to take down BTC-24.

Ok, well, let's see what new economic disaster I can bring about.

That's not a crazy as it sounds, sometimes someone just has "bad luck." I can't tell you how many times I have returned a brand new product because I received it broken. For example, my new computer had a broken trackpad, so I sent it in to get that fixed. Just the other day I realized that the same computer only has 4GB of RAM, even though it was supposed to have 8GB!

Surprised about the blockchain.info issue, and can probably tell you now, they won't be able to help. Blockchain.info doesn't have access to your coins, or any control over them. All they do is store a heavily encrypted copy of your wallet file on their server, and when you use them, they just send you your file which you decrypt locally with your password. They never get to see your private keys or your coins. So the problem with that theft had to have happened somewhere between your chair and their servers, not on their servers. Since they use HTTPS, it was probably somewhere between your chair and your browser. I would figure out what it was, fast, because if your blockchain.info got compromised, chances are any other locally run wallet, like Bitcoin-qt, will too.

In the meantime, if you want to keep your coins safe, buy a cheap (REALLY cheap) laptop or netbook, and stick Bitcoin Armory on it in offline mode.
