is Flexcoin a safe way to hold bitcoin?
Flexcoin is as safe as we can make it. We're constantly auditing code and looking for holes.
Probably as safe as every other web-based wallet: you are trusting the site owner, and the security he/she can provide. And also he/she can run anytime with your money.
True, and this is the same argument I faced over and over by the pitchfork wielding masses when I took over Flexcoin last month. I'm not going anywhere.
IMO a little less safe. With Blockchain.info, Ben doesn't have access to your funds afaik.
As far as you know? I'll tell you straight out that Flexcoin has access to your coins.
