I would love to see an approximate list of the biggest bitcoin accepting businesses, ranked by the amount of their trades done in bitcoin. Also, are there any big bitcoin-unique businesses in addition to SR?

With bitcoin-unique i mean something which business model could not function well without bitcoin.

Agorist means business without permission. If you want to accept dollars for a gambling business you can be stopped as soon as regulations change or start being enforced. The main danger in ignoring these regulations is the choke-point of banks. Using Bitcoin we can securely hold players funds and pay them quickly regardless of any third-party opinions or regulations.

I forget that some may not be aware of the recent online poker developments. The major rooms had their funds seized until they stopped serving US players. Any remaining rooms serving the US have very slow cashouts, 1-2 months from what I hear.

Which ones to avoid
  - e-Wallet services !  (we'll talk about Mybitcoin)


There is no reason to "avoid all ewallet services."  Instawallet has been amazing, reliable, and innovative. BTCinch.com is also really good, and I know the guys who run it personally - they will not be scamming anyone. Flexcoin has also been around quite a while without problems.

With ewallets, people just need to be careful and understand that they're trusting a 3rd party. For small amounts, the ease of ewallets generally outweighs the security concerns. For large amounts, ewallets are probably not prudent.

Mybitcoin was amazing, reliable, and innovative. but they got hacked.

why is Instawallet  or BTCinch any different?

You can ask the same of all the exchanges. At some point, one must trust. And that, to me, is what bitcoin is all about.

Mybitcoin.com was also run by anonymous parties who couldn't be found once bitcoins started disappearing. As a matter of fact, many had difficulty finding ways to communicate with them even before that incident.

At least in the case of BTCinch, I can also say that I know the identities and have been in contact with several individuals running that particular service.

Still around.

Roger, I generally love your work - but that's an unfounded claim.
It might be reasonable for you to harbour that as a personal suspicion, and it may even be true - but it's not reasonable to peddle it as fact.

edit: Whether hacked or not - the mybitcoin case serves as an interesting warning about doing business with an anonymous entity, even if it had a good reputation/rating.

I don't know what happened, but I really doubt they planned to steal from the beginning. When they opened all the coins in existance were worth one big pizza party. Anyone making bitcoin services back then was in it for personal/ideological reasons. It was a crime of opportunity imo.

I think the main lesson is that people holding tons of money better be making tons themselves. I feel pretty good about Gox because they make 1000BTC some days. Tom had big responsibility, almost no pay, and huge temptation.
