Does anyone else use it?  If so, did you notice that it's down right now?  Huh

Pooped my pants a little.  I wonder how many Bitcoins they hold (held?) in their many, many wallets.

They have (had?) a few of mine.

I hope it goes back up.  I just transferred 0.4 bitcoins just before it went down.

Calm down. "They" is actually "him". He is not very likely to run with your measly bitcents.

It was always clearly stated by instawallet that it is a "fun" project, not a venture for profit.
"Instawallet is not a bank", so you should not have used it to store larger assets with it anyway.

Wait until it comes back up, withdraw the majority of your assets and leave only what you are willing to / can afford to lose.


It is a highly useful service and a great contribution to the community, but always keep in mind:

instawallet.org is not a bank

Yeah, well... I'm gonna go build my own blockchain, with blackjack and hookers. In fact, forget the blockchain!

Yeah, thanks for the advice.  I know that they aren't a bank, but I don't think MyBitcoin or services like it claim to be banks, either.

My point?  A cloud wallet service is only as good as its uptime.  Even if I'm only storing a few fractions of a coin there, if it's down, those coins are effectively gone.

I'm sure he's working as hard as he can to get it back online, but it's still down as of right now.  It's been about 20 hours or so since I first noticed it.

Here's to hoping.
