Hello everyone,

I have a question about the mtgox exchange data?

What does the volume represent (i guess it's the number of btc exchanged), and mostly in which period? 1 hour? 1 day?

I'm trying to figure out the liquidity of the market

thanks

Raphy

The volume listed is the number of btc exchanged in the past 24 hours.

Ok thank you very much. That's a fair amount, let's hope it increase with time (which it seems not to do for now).

Is it ?

I have been observing it, and it changes in weird ways. I though it's hourly or something...

The number of bitcoins traded will likely not increase much, but the number of dollars likely will. Smiley

You can see a chart of volume measured in old currency at bitcoincharts.com

I think it's just a straight 24 hours, since it seems to creep down the day after lots of activity.

MtGox local time appears to be US Eastern time, that's the local time of the transactions it displays.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper or hardware wallets instead.

No, it's a rolling 24hr period.

Well, that would explain different number every time i check it.
