International Bitcoin Exchange -- www.intbx.com
We are pleased to announce a new platform for trading Bitcoins, based in Sydney. The exchange is currently in its final stage of internal testing, and will soon be open to the public.
Our most prominent feature is an options market, which is fully integrated and operates just like our regular exchanges. Short positions will be fully escrowed; this guarantees that contracts can be trusted even in the face of exorbitant price shifts. It is our view that this is the best way to encourage the liquidity of Bitcoins without risking an inability to pay out.
Additionally, we'll be offering a fee structure that rewards liquidity providers. There will be a bonus for offers that tighten the spread.
When we enter our public testing phase, we'll post an announcement here and on our mailing list. Meanwhile, we welcome any feedback you might have.
