"The safest way to acquire bitcoin is to let people know that you will accept it as payment for your products and services. Avoid exchanging it for national currencies. The point that people miss here is that national currencies are the very problem that freedom-lovers are trying to get away from. Instead, use bitcoin to trade with merchants and individuals who accept it as payment. Offer it as payment to those who are unaware of it and explain the benefits to them. This will help develop the market and create a solid economy outside of national currencies."

I then  converted the USD to bitcoins and sucked up the "fee" MtGox charges for the privilege of keeping my money indefinitely.  After trying to find a suitable way to transfer the BTC out and convert it into fiat, it became clear that the charges to do so would be exorbitant, as all the exchange services are not setup to convert large amounts of BTC to fiat and their fee structure makes it impractical.

I strongly recommend you withdraw your money in Bitcoin in small steps (400 BTC/day or more if you're verified), and sell it on other markets. Put a buy order for something like 4.95 USD/BTC (not to loose to much money), and wait. Or even 4.92 USD, the price might drop a bit to the levels of 11-14 May - just a few days ago.

Because with time it might get even worse. MtGox might "pull an AML" on you, it might take another some weeks or months or you never know.

You must have not done a very good job searching at other exchanges.

Your sum is just 5200 BTC. That's just about daily volume of Intersango on GBP. Its just 2 days volume on http://www.bitcoin.de/ and you can get quite good prices there - but SEPA only.

There are several other markets. This is not such a huge sum, you get this liquidated to fiat in a week or less.

What country do you need the wire to?

Put some one sale on https://bitmarket.eu/market/USD and advertise it on https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=53.0

If you offer a good price (4.89 USD or less) I might be interested in buying by wire to anywhere in the world, in portions of 1000 USD a time, and I sell the BTC off in Europe and buy the next portion. Lots of other people would do the same probably.

Inaba, do you care to publicly disclose the source of this 26,000$ USD that you have managed to acquire in bitcoin?

Would you care to mind your own business instead of asking unacceptable indiscreet questions which have nothing to do with the case?

If you leave your car at a guarded parking lot does someone ask you where you got it from when you want it back?

Ifs none of yours or MtGox's business. If someone claims that the 26'000 USD is his - bring proof, or shut up.

So the way to avoid MtGox's high fees and long delays is to pay you high fees and accept long delays. Smiley
Selling BTC at 4.89 is the equivalent of a 3.5% fee.  Include the 0.5% trading fee and cost of wire combined with the batches based on your ability to resell it doesn't look like that good of a "deal".

I am not saying just me, lots of people on the forum and bitcoin-otc will happily take some, a 1000 USD worth per person is easy.

No, he won't lose 3.5% if he waits till MtGox BTC prices are under 4.90 USD for a while. They go up and down around 5 dollar mark all the time, so its enough to wait a week or two and will be 4.90 or less, just be patient. He might even get more USD out of it in the end then he has now.

Yes, delays, but still it might be faster then waiting for MtGox to complete the wire (which nobody knows when will happen).

Some time ago a buy offered 500 BTC for sale on the marketplace here on the forum, paid by wire, and it was gone in under 48 hours. The 26000$ person here has just 10 times as much, so its not such a huge sum, can be liquidated with person-to-person trades in probably less time then MtGox finally makes the wire.

I didn't ask you to disclose your assumptions. I asked Inaba to disclose the source of this income.

Inaba doesn't seem to be interested in discussing it.

Why should the bitcoin community consider his whining if he doesn't want to discuss this issue in an objective manner?

I have been trying for nearly 3 weeks to release over $26,000 from MTGox.  Through miriad delays, lies and false promises, I am still unable to withdraw any USD from MTGox.  I believe, though I have not tested, that I may be able to transfer the funds out via Bitcoins, but it would come at a cost of conversion.  Which I have already paid twice in the past three weeks trying to get funds out.

Sometime later...

Q. Have you been working for BFL all along?
A. No. I have had no business relations with BFL beyond being a customer and also providing some technical assistance getting their equipment to properly talk to pools.


Later still...

Inaba, I guess you didn't see my question yesterday. Does BFL have a working (hashing) prototype ASIC miner?

No, we are waiting on our ASIC chips right now, as I've stated in a number of other places, though it's understandable if you have missed the posts, since they are spread out everywhere.

This one was pretty funny. I guess that 8/10 may be as high as 8.5/10.

This is kind of scary. It can be a sign that MTGOX does not have the funds to release..

Well... true.  But now I'm on day 15 of a $4000 withdraw request and nothing.  Same old shit.

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

So you did receive those previous 26K?  How long did you wait total to receive the money?

Any explanation from Gox as to why the delay?

is there a way to get validated for more than $1000/day or $10,000/month?

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).
