BitFunder, Havelock, or CoinBr?

I understand BTCT was registered in Belize but opereated out of Oregan.  Does anyone know this information for the other exchanges?

Still not sure why they shut down. What happened exactly?

Something with legal matters / regulations. More details haven't been given. Whether we'll get these details or not remains to be seen.

For all we know then he quit cuz he wanted to.

I agree.

Let's not give rise to rumors and give Burnside the time he needs to sort things out and make his statements when ready.

How hard is it to list and trade one of the many international exchanges?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_stock_exchanges

Alternative Investment Market (“AIM”)
The London Stock Exchange’s international market for smaller growing companies. A wide range of businesses including early stage, venture capital backed as well as more established companies join AIM seeking access to growth capital. The AIM falls within the classification of a Multilateral Trading Facility (MTF) as defined under the MiFID directive in 2004, and such is a flexible market with a simpler admission process for companies wanting to be publicly listed.

Why do we even consider Bitcoin as an alternative? We could just have used dollars, euros oder pound. Someone should've thought of this earlier.

Highly unlikely. If he simply wanted out he could have sold the exchange for serious money. To someone actually located in Belize (or willing to move there), ideally.

Very hard. The regulation and legal expense is immense. Do not mistake "simpler admission" for "easy". Bitcoin is not even an "alternative" investment yet, by regulatory standards.

The vast majority of existing BTC securities could never be listed on a real exchange.

That wouldn't be any fun.  Too late also...

Burnside shut down because FBI called and mentioned Gitmo forever with no trial is A-OK with the courts these days.

should i feel safe using...BitFunder, Havelock, or CoinBr?

Nope, you shouldnt feel safe at all.

Now bitfunder, like BTCT has a system so you that even if it closes, you can prove ownership of the assets you own. So if you trust the asset issuer, and you are counting on dividends rather than short term speculation, closing of the exchange wouldnt be a total loss (id just be very wary of keeping lots of coins on there). But the chance that these exchanges will not face the same fate as GLSBE and BTCT seems very slim to me. The question is more when than if IMO.
