Transactions must be included in a block to be properly completed. When you send a transaction, it is broadcast to miners. Miners can then optionally include it in their next blocks. Miners will be more inclined to include your transaction if it has a higher transaction fee.

It is surprising though how many organizations don't offer 2 factor authentication. Some use site key images however I think that isn't enough, and don't truly count it.

I guess that's my point, would you comfortably deal with an organisation that doesn't provide at least 2 factor authentication, when it comes to money or Bitcoins?

One bank I deal with has 3 factor to log on and then another 3 factor to enable transactions, I like that.

The entire bitcoin concept is based off trust.

Otherwise, this is just another Ponzi.

At the very least, you must trust the currency since after all - it really has no real value other than the trust the community places in it.

"Please warn people not to purchase Bitcoins from Coinbase.com. It took them 3 days to link to my checking account. Once I was cleared they only allowed me to purchase two bitcoins and posted a message that I would be prevented from purchasing more until delivery of my Bitcoins 5 days later. Today is March 27. Bitcoin is $88. What kind of ish is this?

Be warned people. I regret not following through with my Mt. Gox account. Readers be warned and warn others!

You have to clear at least one purchase through them before they upgrade your account and let you buy 10 a day or w/e, then 100 a day a month later. All part of their anti-fraud procedures. Not their fault that you were a bit late to the game and the price skyrocketed >_> Also, when delivered the price you get is what you paid on that day for.

I'd say that trust no-one with anything. Everyone can stab you in the back. In real life too. Always keepo your eyes open for warning signs. Never ignore them.

One thing I'm working on, is a way that you won't even have to trust your computer in order to make bitcoin transactions from a local wallet.
