I have been trading on CampBX for several months, before the Gox crash, and have watched the depth increase as the site's down time has increased. Okay, this makes sense, new users = increased load + increased depth.

But with a single trade taking me near an hour to complete (for 3 btc!) with several long intervals of the Cloudflare-only pages. I am questioning if there is market manipulation occurring. The site is constantly down. Who trades hundreds of coins at a site you can't use reliably? And magically, the price started following gox closely about a week ago with high depth in each direction.

I would like to hear everyone's thoughts on the matter.

My bet is that a lot of people (myself included) are trading mostly via bots using the API.  Their API can be a bit slow as well, but not nearly as bad as the website.

I use API trading through Dojima. Still no luck, it's PAINFUL slow.
And a bunch of depth disappeared with in 30 minutes of this thread's creation. :-/

i agree that there are many bots on campbx that are likely doing most of the trading, and the API doesn't always go down when the website does.

I don't know that its necessarily intentional manipulation.

Was wondering how do you guys trade with such wide bid-ask gap?  Playing the role of market maker?
