Current ETA for mtgox back: before 14:00 GMT (in fact, it should be in less than 2 hours, but never know what can happen)

Anyway, mtgox is back.

Mtgox might be back but the LR withdraw function is broken again. Which isn't too surprising since the LR withdraw function has worked only 2 twice out of the 50+ times I've tried it. You always blame the LR withdraw being broken on LR's API but mtgox is your website and therefore it is your responsibility to make sure it functions as advertised. When you advertise that people can sell bitcoins for LR and then that functionality doesn't work it is very deceptive. You should at least let people know on the front page of your site when the LR withdraw isn't working that way people don't waste their time, and bitcoins/money. Another, alternative would be to do the LR withdraws manually when the automatic withdraw isn't working. I would also suggest looking into other e-currencies so that people have more options. If you keep mtgox is this perpetual state of reduced functionality eventually someone else is going to make a website that works and you will lose my business and everyone else that doesn't want to wait to withdraw their money.

Also, please no one tell me I should use the bank wire instead. First off, I am in the USA so the minimum is $800 which I don't always have in my mtgox account. Even if I did bank wire isn't a good option for me.

Exchange Bitcoin to Liberty Reserve and have your Liberty Reserve within 12 hours: https://www.bitcoin7.com/?ref=6815
Try it and you'll never use a slower exchanger again.

How about you go and program your own exchange?

How about Dwolla?

Oh and for LR, we've hit the security global daily limit, which means you'll have to retry tomorrow. If you have an urgent need, please email info@mtgox.com with the details of the transfer you want to do.


Thanks

Please don't. Your analyses are great. It's just a wild west of new gold. We need to stabilise that.

Thanks cosurgi. I will definitely continue as long as the trading resumes.

It was not too bad as I focused my spare time the past days more on the Silver SPOT market and I am quite happy to have picked the Silver top at 49.9 $ last Monday. Now we are at 40.9 $...

It's certainly terrible for Mtgox. But is it terrible for Bitcoin?  

If the success of a whole currency can be threatened by something as minor as a DDoS attack on a single website, then it isn't any better than a centralised currency and it has failed to achieve its goals.

I am optimistic and believe that it can't. This community is very good at reorganizing around damage. It arleady proved resilience when mtgox and bitcoin market were attacked for the first time in Oct 2010.

Who said that bitcoin threatened by ddos on mtgox. If so are there any valid arguments to support such an assertion?

I see it as some speculators cannot speculate for a day or two, big deal! Whatever does not kill us makes us stronger. There will be more exchanges, bigger and better than mtgox, give it some time.


Agreed. I though at this point bitcoin exchange rate would crash, but despite everything it's holding and hasn't been bellow $3. I think it's a good indication that bitcoin is much stronger than we all thought

Uhm, there is.

Hi,

MtGox is not down, however chances are you got blocked if you tried to hammer in.

Yeah that may very well be the case. I merely tried to refresh the page at random intervals. Can I PM you my IP address or hostname or domain etc so you can add me to the whitelist?

Hi,

There is no more whitelist, and blocks are handled by the ISP now. You may want however to do a "ip hop" if you can, or wait for the block to expire.
