I don't see a problem with centralised exchanges complying with the laws/regulations, no matter how much we anarchists and libertarians dislike most/all of them. Complying with the State's edicts, including paying taxes if they demand it, aren't selling out on one's principles: they are self-preservation instinct, just like I show my id to the police in Europe if they do a sus-law stop'n'search on me, as they are wont to do, especially in German-speaking places.

If you wish to trade bitcoin/fiat cross without id verification, AML/KYC compliance and so forth, there are already ways of doing that.

Everyone has to comply with laws.
It is not a difficult process to get verified, and if you believe they are honest, you would do it without trouble Smiley

yes agree if we want more good and honest peoples in this community we have to accept this

By the way, "best" does not mean only that little "function". It's still the best because of service and reliability.

Please name another exchange that has better liquidity and support than bit stamp. These days you cannot even withdraw from practically any other exchange.

Why pay 0.5% commission and have to verify, when you can trade at Bitstamp for 0.35% and keep unverified (if you don't transfer fiat): Bitfinex.

The Rock Trading Exchange forges its order books with bots, uses them to scam customers and is trying to appropriate 35000 euro from a forum member https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4975753.0

I for one value my privacy and rather move to those dubious sites than to those bending over.

What privacy? If you use Bitstamp to exchange bitcoins for fiat or viceversa, so you have to make a SEPA deposit or withdrawal.

Sure, using a "service" that might just run away with your money is much better than sending them two documents containing information that they already have...

They just like MtGox require us to verify our accounts, sorry this is bullshit, I do not accept this, furthermore if you DON'T verify by the 30th of September, you will NOT be able to do Bitcoin transactions or Bank transactions.

this is BS i had not even heard about this until today... and i have been using bitstamp the entire month... even did a small withdrawal yesterday

now when I need to do a larger withdrawal today, i have to wait to get verified... they should get fined by the regulators for not communicating this to customers as they log in (i dont have time to read their blog...)

you don't just change the terms of service, and not communicate it properly. 

So you want regulators to take action against them for complying with other regulations you don't like? LOL

They brought this upon themselves by their fail to inform customers.
Now they have 26427 open tickets.
Way to go Bistamp.
