Wanted to post this in the trading forum, but anyways..
I just did some computations and noticed the following. If you take
fees into account, I compared bitparking and mtgox current trading
rates based on recent range of values in the last few days.
mtgox has varied between about 10.8 and 11.6 USD in the last 5 days.
namecoin on bitparking has varied between 0.027 and 0.031 BTC.
In the last 2 days, ixcoin on bitparking has varied between 0.0011 and
So, although ixcoins are clearly worth way less than other currencies,
its price varies much more.
Taking fees into account, I get the following. If you,
- Sold 1 BTC at 11.6 and bought at 10.8, you'd get 1.00437 BTC back.
- Sold 1 NMC at 0.031 and bought at 0.027, you'd get 1.146 NMC back.
- Sold 1 IXC at 0.0011 and bought at 0.0009, you'd get 1.22 IXC back.
So from a percentage profit point of view, it seems that ixcoins is
more interesting for trading.
