Do you have any links to specific funding programs? Or at least the name of the program(s) you have in mind?
 I do not know any program that would give away "free" money just for sending some business plan for a website.

Well it does happen in Poland (or did a while ago).

Look for PARP (Polska Agencja Rozwoju Przedsiebiorczosci)
Program Operacyjny Innowacyjna Gospodarka 8.1 and 8.2

Bitmarket.eu (probably a new service maybe set up as a company would have to be started - of course not before applying) could qualify as an e-service:

http://www.web.gov.pl/informacje-o-euslugach/40_14.html

but the deadline for Round 1 is 1st March...

or start offering some kind of a B2B Internet service, then already existing companies can apply AFAIK (deadline is 30th April)

My personal opinion is, that we should not try to earn back the money with fees. If the fees are too high people would simply use MtGox or other sites.
Fully agree, it must stay competitive

We only have a chance when we can develop something new and unique
yes move the bitcoin environment out of shonky backyard operators and create the only exchange u can trust. maybe three level security, like hot wallet, cold storage, and  "deep" cold storage where it would need, say 5 people to cross-sign to access  (if technical possible).

New features must be the core of a revived side as well as ongoing development, unlike before, a stagnant side hoping someone signs up.
It takes more then that to create a secure exchange Smiley let alone a secure site.  If you want some advice I can more then likely get a certified security auditor to come on and detail you a list of requirements.  As the exchange should be regarded as a financial institution although it doesn't handle credit cards or debit card transactions it should still be as secure as a site that does and to put it nicely having a php website with a mysql database which sits on the same server as the web application,  with poorly implemented iptables and a phpmyadmin page open to the world doesn't really scream I am secure to me.  Not to mention the person who essentially stole 17k bitcoins initially is still involved with the site - If I saw all that I wouldn't touch it with a pole.

So with other words not bitmarked.eu is dead but bitcoins because lets face it no exchange would pass. This is exactly why it can be one opportunity to move away from the shanigans the whole bitcoin environment is in. As it stands its only a matter of time before the next shifty move is uncovered, minor or major. its about as buggy as any microsoft code, the moment u fix one hole another pops up, yet bitcoin raises and raises.

It's not dead it just means there is a big opportunity there for people who have the knowledge and money to invest to create a an actual secure market for trades, any thing connected to the internet can be hacked it is all about mitigating the risk against it. My personal opinion is the exchanges need to have over site by a body similar  to the PCI Security Standards Council and actually be accountable to someone and face penalties for shoddy security practices.  At the very least these exchanges should perform security audits by approved ISA's and have regular sites scans done by an ASV such as Qualys. Until this is done I seriously doubt any sort of mass acceptance of bitcoin by large merchants.

Of course we should use all possible sources for money to invest in this site - if there is no other way... But if there is any chance that the site can start again without money from EU and other "official fiat-money sources" this would be much better in my opinion!!!
I have a good feeling since a man like you is involved! I like your open kind to tell us your name, your company, your interests and so on... And that all, BEFORE you really know all what happened here. I would suggest after we know what are the new conditions and plans to start a second questionnaire whether and how much the old customer would invest in the site! For example I have hold-on about 15 bitcoins, but I have on another (till now sure) site about 50 coins. I would invest half of them in bitmarket if I see a good program for it! I know this is not very much... but maybe other (more rich) customer would do the same!?

Large merchants or multi-international corporations dont have to (eventually they will) accept bitcoins thats where bitmarket.eu steps in. as well as being an exchange it can also be a gatway, similar to the guys at pizzaforcoins.  
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-21427505
of-course there markup is way to high.
Bitcoins its like a runaway train u either jump on it or get run over.

@mentor, using curse words will not help i assume....


We will have the official information how to proceed quite soon i hope, the drafts for the communications are about to be ready, but some details still need to be revamped.

Reopening however would also not happen over night, we need to discuss a lot about security / financial issues / organisational issues. Especially to avoid that mistakes from the past could repeat.

I think that you have to respect other people that are spending their time and money to try to find a solution that can help who has lost bitcoins, including you
Also remember that time is money .... and they are investing their time for free.

Well, there is only one way you can be sure about that. It is well known for centuries. It is called bankruptcy procedure!

we decided not to go this way, as the majority of the users did not want to go into liquidation, but expressed their interest to cooperate with the new investors instead. If you are one of the few non-cooperative persons, you should send in an "official" claim to Maciej including best possible evidence on how much you think you should get paid back (in FIAT currency, not bitcoin) and we will check your case and handle it individually.  (depending on how much coins you have frozen etc.). More information will follow within the next days I assume.

Yes it is well know for centuries that i can expect less than 10% return of my investment in a bankruptcy procedure. so for my 110.9 frozen bitcoins i would receive in a best case scenario 70 - 90 Euro. 110.9 x 10.56 x 0.06 
10.56 is the last closing price before the company shut up shop. court and solicitors expenses would come of too. so if i am lucky i get an get an ice-cream for my 110.9 BTC

I hope customers were not intentionally misguided to believe that "liquidation" under bankruptcy procedure means dismantling of the service and website?

When will you understand that there are no "frozen" coins or "fried" coins or any other special kind of coins? Your coins are gone! There are no coins at all. What is left is only the obligation of the current owner! He will give nothing back to you until he faces the real possibility of serving a prison term.

I am waiting to see how this unfolds. The recent theft of coins is due to negligence of the owner and not even using basic security procedures for the site - you never have phpmyadmin open to the world at least lock it down to your own ip address or better still use a vpn and connect to the LAN of your server that way to admin the database.  The initial theft of coins again down to the admin who stole the coins in a very real sense.

If a satisfactory solution is not found where I am able to get all my lost coins back I may pursue the legal route - I may not get anything back but at least  he learns an important lesson and hopefully serves a prison term.

I noticed he uses a Mac for development from the web logs so I'm calling dibbs on that when it is sold  Tongue

well, the site is already closed down, liquidation means simply paying out of current assets and thats it. But it will not happen, we have requested from everyone with frozen coins an answer on how to proceed and we have received enough support to try set up a new site instead of going through the bankruptcy procedure. The people that do not want to cooperate will be handled individually. But as a next step there will be a kick-off meeting in Helsinki on 15th of March with the investors on all details for the new site,  the official invitation will follow soon i hope. And yes, it is public unless 100 people intend to come *g , so everyone can join us and discuss the plans.

The investment sums unfortunatley come soley from our "private" money, so we cannot expect any wonders and we have a tight budget and all support is welcome. But as already said, the "official" communication(s) will follow hopefully tomorrow at latest

There are no "frozen" coins as already explained above. I think if you have told them that they have no frozen coins but just coins that are gone, their answer would have been quite different!

The investment sums unfortunatley come soley from our "private" money, so we cannot expect any wonders
I can't think of any reason that will make an investor burn their money in such a way. May be the only reason I can think of is if the purpose of such an investment is to bail out current owner! From every 100 stolen bitcoins 30 bitcoins will be "invested" back, so everybody will be happy or at least have hope that their "frozen" coins will be unfrozen at sometime next century.
