Hello i am new here,
so i have to give a post here that i can comment other Topics?
lol, what a necro..
btw when are these guys coming back?
Never, they are currently fighting a federal class action lawsuit. Somehow their CEO @charlieshrem is still out and about - apparently they have avoided a criminal indictment for now - but I don't see Bitinstant itself ever coming back. Since they have a potentially very large judgment coming down the pipeline, at best they would transfer any intellectual property they had to a different corporate entity and start under a new name. Starting with no reputation is better than starting with a bad reputation.
Actually, we are.
We've been working on our relaunch the past few months, and looking to get things up and running in Q1 2014
While I can't comment on the lawsuit, I will say it's not even certified nor a class action yet. Its 2 guys and 1 girl (total amount is less then $1000) who are threatening a lawsuit. This is not something stopping BitInstant from relaunching.
I've showed screenshots and demos of our new site at a few conferences, including London, Argentina and Atlanta.
For the past few months, I have been working on Bitcoin Foundation and have brought together many communities including Canada, Argentina and Australia.
