For one thing I was not alerted by email when trades happened.

Second I had to write a spreadsheet to figure out what they actually charged me.

Thirdly they both log you out in miniscule time periods.

And I NEVER get the TH capcha right the first time (blind as a bat and all that rot)


Fairly unprofessional compared to the brokerage accounts I have used.

Feel like investing in a Miner?:

A fine example of the free market responding efficiently to its customers demands ("the customer is always right").  So much better than those government-regulated monopolies that just tell you to shut up and accept things just the way they are.

Sorry I just feel real hostility towards the speculators, its not what bitcoin was designed for.

:-D  Apology accepted.  I dislike speculators too, but the way Bitcoin is set up, speculation is (mostly) all we'll ever get.

No plan ever survives contact with the real world.

All currencies have speculators.  No speculators, no exchanges.

Smalleyster,
mean people on this forum suck, don't they?  Another thing I don't like about Tradehill is how they force you to write things down from one page to remember them at the trade page, e.g., current price.  It's always bad form to require people to memorize or write things down as they navigate your site.

I am one with you on the CAPTCHA business. I haven't had any trades on Tradehill so far because prices are too stable and I've only just joined. Mt. Gox is okay, there is just the 0.03 percents BTC charge, right?.. will be much more action on the exchanges come the next RALLY!...  Grin

The history disappears over time in the current dashboard. Can that change to be permanent and downloadable into a log?
