BTC/USD-3.14 settled at $636.75, with an amazing trading volume $31.7M.

Thank you so much for trading, and we hope to provide an even better service for newer contracts, and to reach new all-time-highs in volumes and prices.

I was not able to confirm if the 0.0001 BTC/ Trade or Settlement is the only fee, or if there are overnight-fees ect.

Could you please clarify that for me?

Thanks

We had a few contracts running with the so-called clearing fee (taken twice per day when holding the position "overnight") in the past. However all presently trading contracts don't have any clearing fee and only have fixed per trade fee and final settlement fee.

BUJ4 settled 2014-04-18, at 20:00 UTC time.
Settlement price was $484 (calculated in contract price units without rounding as 1 hour volume weighted average price based on transactions info provided by Bitstamp API).
Total traded volume over the lifespan of contract was $3,700,120.

Now a new near month contract is launched, BTC/USD-5.14 (BUK4). Happy trading!

Dear API users!
Two new order statuses will be added soon: PendingCancel and PendingNew (https://icbit.se/api ).

So that the order workflow will be:
Pending New -> New or Rejected -> Filled or Partially Filled or Pending Cancel -> Canceled.

Please prepare to handle the new statuses properly in your software.

And more cool improvements to come!

Work on HTTP API implementation is going on and today we deployed first two API requests - to create and cancel an order. The authentication process is very similar (technically the same) as the one used by Bitstamp, which should save you time if you already have bots trading in Bitstamp.

Other API requests will follow. Please let us know if you like something specific. Your feedback is highly appreciated, as usual.

Three new requests added to the HTTP API:
  • Fetching order book for a particular trading instrument
  • Getting a list of your orders
  • Account balance and open positions

If there is anything else necessary - please don't hesitate to let us know.

I have a problem. Say I get paid 100 BTC with $10 per coin, which makes it worth $1000 today. I convert that to $ but in 1 month or some time in the future, I want to buy back 100 BTC at $10 per coin for the value of $1000. The problem is that in one month the price of Bitcoin might change. So I want to know how much it would cost me today to get insurance against the change in price of bitcoin one month into the future. I do not care about profits nor losses related the change in price, I just want to avoid any change.

Is this possible to do on ICBIT with a futures contract. If yes, then how? Could you please tell me where I could see how much this insurance would cost me today as a percentage of the amount of BTC I want to insure. Thanks.

That's exactly what the futures contract is for.

If you got paid with $1000 in Bitcoins (100 BTC in our case), then you need to sell 100 futures contracts for at least $10 (or higher) price to fix your BTC value in USD (e.g. if BTC rate drops to $5, then you would get 100 BTC in profit, however, if BTC rate goes to $20, then you would loose 50 BTC, however remaining 50 BTC will still cost the same $1000 bucks).

Please feel free to ask any questions. The delay with answer was due to Bitcoin2014 conference in Amsterdam.

I have a question about security of funds (both margin and running profits). Do you have any plans to implement 2 of 3 multi-sig on margin and profits? Otherwise, what protection is there against ICBIT insolvency?
Many thanks

Right now it's a max possible loss within one trading session (e.g. when buying at the highest price and selling at the lowest). Soon it's going to be more complicated and reduced to allow more leverage.
