Most people probably have no clue about Tradehill, but I'm sure the older members would. Short history: They were the second largest exchange in 2011, and abruptly shut down after a $30,000+ payment reversal from Dwolla. Everyone's btc and fiat was frozen in there, the owner (Jared?) did attempt to pay some people back, but as far as I know there are still some people that were screwed by them.

Unfortunately, I'm still one of those people that have yet to get my money back. Does anyone have more info on the whereabouts of the owner, or how we can contact him? Last I heard, he took the website offline for "security" reasons and said he'd put it back online to resolve any open issues with customers. Well that never happened. Any info on this situation or contact would be greatly appreciated.

I thought I remembered Tradehill opening back up at some point and operating as a high limit exchange for large buyers and sellers. Didn't it shut down again for the second time? Jared Kenna was the owner/operator, correct?

Yes, I still have some funds in there that Jared said he'd pay back to make it right, but never did.



Thank you detective!

How am I suppose to have this in "writing" other than my account login and pw to the tradehill account? That's like saying if you have your btc and fiat in writing in mtgox account when it went down. So no, there is no official writing, but Jared can verify it when I give him my email and pw. They should have logged database.

At some point they were working with IAFCU to provide each customer their own individual bank account linked to the exchange account (so that the accounts were insured). Then something happened, IAFCU all the sudden stopped being so pro bitcoin and TradeHill shut down again.

They said hey had a $10k minimum or something like that, but I signed up and it was never verified.

They probably realized getting licences in all 50 states is not financial feasible.

remember Tradehill?
When KingGox had their first 2 major hacks/meltdowns Tradehill was the #1 exchange for ~10 days. Their volume did show some increase, but mostly people were stuck waiting...and waiting for Gox to re-open. Thank goodness the economy has grown past those days.

Too much Gov't in the way, and not enough funding to deal with the read tape...I think.

IAFCU doesnt need a license in all 50 states (48 anyhow) as they bought a failing credit union, so they have a special type of license exempting them from needing money transmission licenses.

Tradehill owes me BTC as well. I attempted to recover my coins pretty late after the fact because I was traveling and hadn't seen the news until a couple months after the freeze. There were claims on twitter and reddit that people were able to get money back, but I've tried all the emails that people have posted (including the CEO's personal email and sending DMs to his twitter) and have had no luck.

Cynically, I think that he paid people back who were likely to make noise about their success on forums, but a lot of other people got screwed over if they weren't as directly involved in the community.

The silver lining is that I learned from this and kept my coins off of MtGox.

Very bad its still unresolved, i remember coinabul too, both ended in scams. The good thing is now better and trusted companies are emerging to remplace those.
