It's my understanding that they're doing quite well financially.

It would be nice to see them hire a graphic designer and make the site look like something the community could be proud of.

Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

It did take them an awful amount of time to fix the http->https redirection. But yeah, considering they're probably the biggest exchange service or at least the most recognised one, it could do with a lift. Not something fancy, simply a bit more neat. But as mentioned above, it does work and at least the current structure is simple.

I personally think saving their money for fighting the current (and possible upcoming) legal battles will be a much wiser decision.

Clearly we have a bunch of web developers and not enough web designers.  Smiley

it's not just Gox .. it's everyone...  we run a bunch (as a whole) of sites that all have the refined look and feel of Drudge Report...  yea it works.. but it's not even close to sexy.

  I couldn't agree more. And, I personally like the simple interface from a trading perspective. If I wanted flash shit beaming me in the face all day I'd go fire up Meta Trader... ;p  Hell, even my damn Scott Trade acct has crap all over in your face these days. I hope if they do 'pretty' it up they give those of us that desire the more spartan look an option.

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

My soon-to-launch project is going to look very nice and provide great functionality.

I'm glad they got rid of that really slow graph on the frontpage.

I attribute the dearth of high-gloss stuff more to the fact that most Bitcoin sites are tossed up overnight just to see if anything will happen, and having not taken a whole lot of effort to set up, are just as easily killed off. Bitcoin integration itself is dirt cheap and easier than just about any other payment method known to man. Ditto from a regulatory standpoint (so far). So I don't think the problem is that people can't design if they want to, and if they take the time to; it's that devs are in a hurry to get to the functionality, and the present community doesn't really have a problem with that. For the community to grow, though, it would pay to have someone put in the extra effort to build a nice interface on things. It's not like we live in 1994. Although it does seem that way sometimes.

maybe if there were held a 'bitcoin design award' we could list the best-looking bitcoin-related sites and vote.

what's a good one to start with?

oh, and about mt gox... didn't they spend $1000 or more just on that new logo? you know, the logo they never put on their site.

How about first fixing the glitches in their price reporting. It just plummitted through 2.3 for a brief moment again. Yesterday it was going up above 3.4 without any cause. Faulty price data is much more worrying than how their website looks.

No one asked.

About design, this community is full of unimaginitive, unartistic types who are great at numbers. I hate it. Bitcoin sites remind me of geocities.



I don't know what you're talking about, holmes. My geocities page was bitchin'.

Thank you, but please don't go that far!

I'm sure that it would be great for Bitcoin if they had a professional looking site. Mt.Gox is one of the sites that almost everyone who consider getting started with Bitcoin will visit. It's one of the sites that will make people decide if Bitcoin is a "real" currency or just a toy project. Honestly, today the Mt.Gox site does not look like something that regular people will want to trust their money with. It does not at all resemble other professional web sites that handle a lot of money.

Example of web site related to finance, simple, yet professional design: http://www.nasdaqomxnordic.com

So you want rounded corners.... that shouldn't be too hard.
