Too many noobs are playing with people's money. It is good to have more than 2 exchanges but not this way.

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 transaction fee.

However I don't really think this is going affect the market much or at least it shouldn't. We're probably talking at most 3-5000 BTC gained from the hack which might be able to put a 20cent dent in the market but apart from that I don't really see much happening.

What worries me is that this hack might actually have happened a while ago and been covered up for 1-2weeks during the a lot of extra peeps might have been taken to the cleaners.

This should not come as a surprise.  Some of us warned here on this forum of errors and insecure design of Bitcoin7 from the beginning, some suspecting a scam.  People will hopefully learn, again, to not trust their money, Bitcoin or fiat, to strangers.  It should be obvious.

Sjå http://bitmynt.no for veksling av bitcoin mot norske kroner.  Trygt, billig, raskt og enkelt sidan 2010.
I buy with EUR and other currencies at a fair market price when you want to sell.  See http://bitmynt.no/eurprice.pl
I support the roadmap.  If a majority of miners ever try to forcefully take control of Bitcoin through a hard fork without 100% consensus, I will immediately split out and dump all my forkcoins, and buy more real Bitcoin.

I wonder if whoever sold into the bid walls were the hackers dumping their stolen bitcoins...

I think the terrible bitcoin exchanges being run out of Eastern European students' parents' basements are already baked into the cake, so to speak.

Ruxum can't open up soon enough. I still don't trust Magic The Gathering Online Exchange's security.

I have to say, Ruxum worries me a bit too.  The fact that their trading engine was completely down for several days (sep. 27 - Oct. 3) without any sort of announcement doesn't inspire much confidence.

Do we know the addresses they had in those wallets? Can we track what happens to the money after the attack?

(I dont always get new reply notifications, pls send a pm when you think it has happened)

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!

Bitcoin7's userbase has been dwindling for months.  I'm glad I stopped using them.
