What will this do?

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

Taken from facebook post from the MT GOX page



Mt.Gox celebrates its first anniversary by offering a 50% discount on fees

TOKYO, JAPAN - March 29th, 2012

Tibanne acquired Mt.Gox in March 2011, and to celebrate this milestone and the Bitcoin community's continued support, we have decided to offer to all of our Mt.Gox customers a 50% discount on all trading fees!

From 00:00:00 GMT on April first, No, this isn't an April Fool's trick, until 23:59:59 GMT on April seventh all trade fees on Mt.Gox will be half price. Note that this is regardless of your trading volume or when you started trading with us!

Meaning that anyone who used to pay 0.6% will pay only 0.3%. This 50% discount on all trade fees will be automatically applied to everyone and relative to volume discounts as cited on our fee schedule.

Make sure you are trading between April first and April seventh to get this celebratory offer!!!

On behalf of Mt.Gox's staff, we would like to once again thank you for your continued support!

Oh, I see. Guess we'll see bigger-then-usual price fluctuations during this period due to the bigger volume half-fees would garner. Pity it wasn't fee-free though  Tongue.

I bet you this is because of the image damage they are suffering due to https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=73385.0 Now they are trying to lure people in with cheap fees like zhoutong did with a zero spread.

IMO it won’t make the market more volatile but less volatile because market maker bots can trade smaller fluctuations.

Fully agree. Many people think Gox has gone bonkers in freezing people's accounts.

I understand that people who had their accounts frozen may feel bitter about it, but the fact is that Bitcoin at this point depends on MtGox. Another fact is that MtGox operates in real world, and needs to comply with AML or be shut down. They behave responsibly, and are doing what seems to be a good thing for Bitcoin.

Back to original topic: I personally don't care, as I don't trade that much. Good for those of us who do. Either way, it'll be interesting to see the effect (if any) of reduced fees on April 1st.
