Hi Everyone, thought I'd introduce myself first, then the site I just finished setting up.
I've been involved with Bitcoins since the CPU mining days, and double digit difficulty (man, when it jumped to 43, that was rough!) My company (Lightbox Technologies) has been accepting Bitcoins as payment for web hosting and VOIP for over a year now. (Yes. our website is horrible, its in the process of being redeveloped - it looks like its 9 years old because it is!)
So, being Canadian I was drunk last Friday, roaming around Parliament Hill with 300,000 other people and hanging out with friends, telling them all about these wonderful Bitcoins, when it dawned on me that there was no way to easily convert BTC to CAD... so I figured I'd do something about that!
Its simple and straight forward. You can BUY and SELL Bitcoins with $CAD at rates pegged to the overall exchange rates.
This is NOT another trading site. You do not list buys & sells and hope they get filled as the market moves. You don't need an account, you don't maintain a balance, every transaction is handled when it comes through.
That said, for my protection and yours, I decided to institute a soft-launch for the first few days/weeks, where the overall volume per 24h has limits. Once those limits are exceeded, the appropriate forms will be temporarily disabled.
So all you fellow Canadians out there (that are still hungover from a week ago!), FINALLY there is an easy way to get our colourful money in and out of the BTC world. I'd appreciate any feedback you have on the site (even if you just look at it and don't use it!) Feel free to post here, or I'll be hanging out in #canadianbitcoins on Freenodehttp://www.canadianbitcoins.com
