"I lost all my money shorting Bitcoin at the bottom and now I don't know what to do to make you sell anymore!!!"


I guess you bought Goxcoin on Bitcoinbuilder, because everything said about GOX all the time was plain FUD.
dude anybody here knew about the gox problems with withdrawals, it was obvious that you shouldn't have kept money there...
Hell even on Twitter it was full of folks screaming "take your money out of gox!!" before the catastrophe.

Anybody? Well, perhaps you missed all the people falling over themselves to wire money to Gox / send coins to BitcoinBuilder directly before they shut down.

So you can guarantee that Bitstamp and friends are safe, and there won´t ever be problems withdrawing funds(USD/BTC) due to US(FBI) investigations?

Nobody can guarantee anything. Anything can happen at any time. The US government could flip-flop tomorrow and declare Bitcoin as 100% illegal. All anyone can do is guess.

Of course Bitstamp and other exchanges are not safe. Is that a joke?

Don't keep all your eggs in one basket. I would be very, very surprised if a major exchange were not shut down / bankrupt in the next year.

So are yall going to protest about shutting down banks due to all the fraud and theft and assorted criminal activity being funded with USD? If they push the issue, this should be part of the backlash pointing to the elephant on the table and make sure they hear nobody's buying it.

The exchanges aren't going to be shut down just to shut them down. If any of them are operating badly they will get weeded out like Gox did. You either trust the exchanges you send money to or you don't. If you don't, pull your money out and move it somewhere else. If the exchange survives and withstands that, it's probably not going anywhere. If you trust them, then don't sweat it.

Government flexes and then the people respond. If there's enough backlash about it they'll back down. They're not going to come out with some draconian ban because they'll never be able to enforce it anyway...no matter what "rules for bitcoin" and "guidelines" and "policy" they dig out of their asses. I'm in the US and even I know that the US isn't the center of the universe no matter what our government likes to think. They're all delusional anyway.

You say "anti government" like that's a bad thing...

Bitstamp is not operating from USA, so it needs to be Slovenia investigations (I guess Bitstamp is located there)

What exchanges other than coinbase are physically operating in the US?

The FBI doesn't have a shred of jurisdiction outside this country...

They did accept funds from US customers and aren´t registered @ Fincen, that would be enough to justify an investigation.

International borders are not what they used to be. The USA drops bombs on people in Yemen and Pakistan, don't think freezing a UK registered company is beyond them.

Cryptsy is a pretty big exchange that operates in the US. They are also registered with FINCEN (like Coinbase).

Again, who did they send them to? They can send all the subpoenas they want outside American borders and the recipient can piss on them and toss them in the trash, they're meaningless. FBI can't do shit outside this country. Anything they attempted would be tossed out on its ass in any court.

How much would you worry about a court order from China?

If they sent them to exchanges here, then it would be coinbase. I asked what other ones are there besides coinbase? If that's the only one operating on US soil, then that's just one.
