But please, don't put me in the same bag with mybitcoin. The guy just dissapeared with people's funds and provided no solution for this. Also, his core business was storing the coins safely, which he completely broke. I on the other hand did everything in my power to provide great exchange experience, and this was going quite well I think. It's a shane that I failed on the storage part...

You cannot be serious.  You stole user funds.  Whether you "invested" them with Bitcoinica, used them to play at the casino, bought lottery tickets with them, used them to play the stock market, placed them with pirate, or spent them on hookers and blow is irrelevant.  Risking other people's funds without their permission is not doing "everything in my power to provide great exchange experience".  If people wanted to risk shorting on Bitcoinica they would have done that themselves rather than leaving their funds with you for safe-keeping.

Don't blame Bitcoinica for the fact that you misappropriated user funds.  That's like blaming the trainer if you'd taken user funds and bet on a losing horse at the race track.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

So everybody go on ... blame him. I think he all ready knows exactly what he did wrong, but he's willing to get everything all right. Okay ... it's a big business to get managed and he'll try it. Don't know if he is really authentic but that doesn't matter at all ...

If I wanted to steal the money, I'd just announce that I got hacked and whole wallet was stolen.

That's what he all ready told ... and go on blaming him would take no, absolutely no effect in his attempt to get back coins for Bitmarket.eu Users ... maybe only the effect that he going to be really pissed off. That would be the point really say good bye to all. So everybody should stop this damn shitstorm and post constructive ...

And for everybody who think I should shut up and go on blaming ... I have "lost" Bitcoins on Bitmarket.eu too.

Well, everyone can see what's been done wrong here.

The easy thing would be just to walk away, sticking around is harder.

But then again, who would trust someone that has failed miserably like this, I know I would not.

People can however change, and we all do stupid things from time to time, and some do much stupider things than others.

However, depositing money with a problem gambler I would not consider very safe.

To make sure there's no fuckups in the future, the handling of accounts and money should be left to a 3rd party, like a lawyers office.

I have only five bitcoin, so it is not a major loss, but i hope will be recover some bitcoins. My (ex) BTC were dedicated to donation... Today I'm going to donate 1 BTC to Free Software foundation but I have read the bad news Sad

ok, is there now any plan how the admin (or whoever) plans to proceed in this issue? Is there someone out there who plans to

a) Invest into the site
b) do legal action(s) against the admin?


Or what other options do you see?

As for my plans, I would like to resume trading on the site as fast as possible, probably on the beginning of next week. That could change, depending on the investors' wishes.

Of course he has a plan.

1.  Post here telling everyone what and honest and upstanding member of the community he is because he decided to tell you, one year after the fact, that he lost all your money because he gambles with it on Bitcoinica.

2. He is now seeking "investors" who he believes will give him additional funds because he did such a great job "investing" your money.

3. And if all else fails he assumes some benefactors will contribute funds to keep his business going because he is such a fine upstanding guy and obviously talented investor.

When you click the link to see how the donations are flowing you will also have a pretty good idea of how the other options are working out for him.

I wouldnt see it so negatively,

of course the donation plan did not work.

But nevertheless, the site has some potential because
a) we now have some (negative) attention
b) the site has a quite good user base i assume


As far as i am concerned, I am personally willing to invest into the site, but i would like to see a plan :-)

I would gladly apologize and praise him if here were able to turn this around but that won't happen until he publicly outlines a clear plan of action and publically states who these mysterious "investors" are or the very least proves he is actually receiving investor funds. And if it is indeed such a good site or service maybe he should sell it to a more prudent operator and use the funds to repay creditors.

Cool, when do you think we can start making our withdrawals from bitmarket.eu?

I then use the money to buy BitCoins. You can too!

I don't think anyone would like to be named before we make any deal (of course they can do it themselves if they wish). I'm in talks with several people right now, two of them willing to invest in the site directly, and another two with propositions of helping them build their service for a pay (which will go directly to support withdrawals).

I will start processing withdrawals as soon as I acquire any funds, be it from investors or by other means. I have yet to decide if I should process them in chronological order, or distribute the available funds evenly among all users with withdrawals pending. I lean towards the former option, but it isn't decided yet.

Honesty and full transparency are your only assets right now with the community and your creditors in this recovery process.

Please keep us posted.

Good luck.

I'm one of them. As with all other Bitcoin services I've always made immediate transfers back to my own locally stored wallet, never keeping any funds on-site.

I'm also an ex Bitmarket.eu user. I will, of course, never touch the site again. Scamming-by-ignorance is still scamming.

(I'm awaiting the protocol solution to an otherwise unsolvable problem in Bitcoin-world)

How large was your last fee on bitmarket.eu? And have your trades been successfully?

No fees, all trades successful. I recommended bitmarket.eu to everyone in Europe I introduced to Bitcoin, and told them to avoid exchanges.

That doesn't change the fact that the service owner used funds that didn't belong to him to gamble in a casino - an illegal act in the relevant jurisdiction. The possibility for fraud is why I never, ever, keep BTC under anyone else's control but my own longer than absolutely necessary.

(And also why I believe that the solution must be protocol mandated. There's no such thing as "trust" when large sums of money is involved. I don't trust a bank with more money than the EU insures on my behalf either)

So this exchange make no money because he charges no fees??

So to make money this exchange owner GAMBLES YOUR FUNDS on bitcoinica and looses.

You all would have had a better change sending all those coins to Saoshi Dice.   At least you would have been aware of the risk involved, had a little fun and maybe would even had had some extra coin to show for it.

If I were a BitMarket.EU creditor I would make a Scammer accusation as the owner clear violated any stated or  implied agreement he had with his users.

It is (and was) possible to set fixed donations (percentage of every trade you make) from your account settings, but it was voluntary, which I guess was a mistake, because even if many people agreed that the service helped them make successful trades, they didn't set it.

The plan for now is either make a fixed transaction fee, or a monthly fee for sellers, which would include 24/7 support. I'm leaning towards the latter option, because admin support is cruicial on exchange like BitMarket. That way, the service will earn funds neccessary to reimburse the losses.

The larger point is that fees/profit isn't "bad".   Sure no reason to be excessively gouging your customers but anyone should turn a critical eye towards a service they operate completely free.
At best it tends to mean the operator is naive and likely dangerously under capitalized at worst the "free" is simply a hook to scam 100% of the deposits.

Even things like google aren't "free".  Google provides "free" searches because they make billions on ad revenue.   Google wouldn't index the entire internet at tremendous cost simply to provide searches for free with no revenue.

Capitalism without restraint is as inhuman as communism.
The market has no conscience. What about people "the market" has no use for because they're ill or diabled? Shall they starve?

Fud will get you anywhere, sure. Otherwise, some will starve. They're those that should starve. "Conscience"? Gtfo. Do something useful or starve, we don't need everyone, we just need the cool people.

And please stop being judge over morality or immorality. Stop calling others liars or thieves. You are not right nor are the others right.

Feel free to starve clinging to that stupidity. In the real world, yes I am right, and yes you are wrong. And yes the market has no "conscience", if by that "conscience" you mean making idiots like you be "right" in spite of being wrong. It has no conscience of that sort whatsoever, and you will be the one paying for it.

But props for the "I'm right out of noob zone and I'm telling people what's what" attitude, fuckwit. Here's a video describing what happens in simple, visual terms easily digestible by the mentally stunted (such as yourself) and here's the same thing spelled out (for when you get older and become literate, which means you don't need to be beaten over the head to learn things). Start with #1.

They don't need to starve either. Either way, I'm simply not responsible.
