Finally permanent API keys are available, coming along with a new (better and more secure) authentication method, which would also support upcoming "simpler" API too.

Dear trader bot developers! Old access method still works, but you need to switch to the new one as soon as possible.
There is SharpTrader in C# as a reference implementation, and updated description available in the API specification page.

For those of you who are available with BitStamp signature generation, you will find signature generation algorithm in ICBIT remarkably similar so that you can reuse your existing code.

The only drawback is that socket.io doesn't allow to send authorization error messages, so unfortunately it may be hard to debug. To compensate this we provide those reference implementations and you can watch last used nonce value in the API keys page.

There was a problem with DNS information, so that API server was resolving to wrong IP address in some cases. This was fixed shortly, sorry for inconvenience.

Some issue is occurring again.  If there is a maintenance outage, there should be some message displayed on the site.  And there should be some communication of status out-of-band, ... perhaps here on this thread, or/and on the @ICBIT_se Twitter account maybe?

That's why I insist on using Twitter. However, it's banned in China, so not the best method. The website itself will have a news feed soon.

What happened to Google Authenticator 2FA?

The last few times I was logging in, I was no longer asked for my GA code.   Huh

It's still required to withdraw funds, however we are working on a newer version of a more secure and more user friendly GA module. Will be ready within ~3 or 4 days.

The old one was disabled due to concerns about possible security vulnerabilities.

Some of the press coverage we've got during recent two months. It's not quantity, but quality of the non-biased sources. Sometimes they are harsh regarding us, but it just proves the fact that we could provide an even better service.

CNN
WIRED
CoinDesk

More to come!

Has the Settlement Price changed because of the divergence of MtGox?

Has the Settlement Price changed because of the divergence of MtGox?

Each of the contracts has different terms.   

BUG4 (BTC/USD-2.14) settles Feb 21st, and gets price based on the volume weighted average price (“VWAP”) across the three operating exchanges with the most volume in BTC-USD over the previous 30 days.

So eyeballing the BitcoinCharts data, looks like Mt. Gox will definitely be one of the top three over the past 30 days (in terms of BTC/USD volume).

Now what impact Mt. Gox will have on settlement day will be determined by the (24 hour) VWAP at Mt. Gox at the settlment time (20:00 UTC) on that day.   So if the top three (volume of BTC/USD) are Mt. Gox, BTC-E and Bitstamp and the (24 hour) VWAP at each is 600 (Mt. Gox), 750 (BTC-e) and 750 (Bitstamp) then the average of those three is 700 (2,100 / 3) and that becomes the final settlement price.

Now BUH4 (BTC/USD-3.14), which settles March 14th, uses the 24 hour VWAP from the exchange that had the most volume (in terms of BTC/USD) over the past 30 days.  So this time, eyeballing the data, it looks like Bitstamp would be the exchange with the most volume.  And thus, no -- MT. Gox divergence would not impact the settlement price.

And BUJ4 (BTC/USD-4.14) specifies the exchange (Bitstamp) so there too Mt. Gox divergence would not impact the settlement price.

Gox), 750 (BTC-e) and 750 (Bitstamp) then the average of those three is 700 (2,100 / 3) and that becomes the final settlement price.


That is why I asked. The Ask is currently around $625 BTC/USD. If I calculated the weighted average correctly, it is around $525. So, assuming that MtGox does not recover this week and volume is proportionate, you can buy USD (sell BTC) at $625 BTC/USD, and the close out of the contract will be a sell USD (buy BTC) around $525 BTC/USD. Seems like an interesting risk trade for 1 week.

Maybe go short BTC on ICBIT Feb contract and go long BTC on a leveraged position somewhere else to hedge the price movements.

Site appears broken (i.e., no orderbook data, time & sales blank,  trollbox blank, etc.)

So, ... bump on this request:

Yes, we are working on the frontpage layout rearrangement, and it will feature all possible OOB channels so that people are actually aware of them.

Original posted here.

MtGox exchange will not be included in settlement price calculation for BUG4 and BUH4 contracts unless their BTC deposit/withdrawal problems will be completely solved before 07 Mar 2014. We understand that not everyone will like this decision, but we have no choice because MtGox is clearly detached from bitcoin economy AND, judging by their latest press-release, they can't provide any details about time required to enable normal operations once again. Our settlement rule for BUG4 clearly says "operating exchange", and MtGox doesn't meet that requirement at this moment. As far as we know, many other bitcoin services already excluded MtGox from their price index.

Usually we would refer to Bitcoincharts for this type of settlement, but there is a strong evidence that Bitcoincharts service is owned by or related to MtGox, and thus cannot be used as a point of reference.

User interface updates:
  • Fixed the issues with orders list updates. Now all possible situations where an order would be listed twice, or orders state is displayed out of date are fixed.
  • Own trades are bold in the Time & Sales window
  • Polarity sign is added to the right of the volume in T&S window and denotes the direction of an order which initiated this trade: + for buy order and - for sell order.

And who "initiated" the trade?  The one who posted the limit order (the first to act, one possible meaning of initiating), or the one who takes it and actually cause the trade to take place?

The one who takes the bus/sell offer and causes the trade to take place.

It's quite simple: imagine that orderbook consists of one limit order. And a new one comes, which matches the existing order. In this case, the trade will be marked as "buy" or "sell" according to that new order.

Sounds good?
