From my analysis it appears Bitcoin Market is practically dead or barely used.  Is this accurate/true?

If so, is there something specific that Bitcoin Market does or doesn't do that causes it to not be as popular, successful, widely used or otherwise useful as other competing markets/exchanges?  What are these things?  What can help to improve Bitcoin Market so that it will be more accepted or useful to others?

With BCM, you might have to wait up to 10 days for a trade to be confirmed. I don't want to do PayPal trades very often because I don't want PayPal to freeze my account for "suspicious activity" or whatever. For these reasons, I think people who use BCM prefer to do large but infrequent trades. I have personally traded more BTC in a single trade on BCM than Mt. Gox's current 24-hour volume.

I strongly believe that Mt. Gox will collapse when it experiences a few chargebacks. I don't trust that deposited USD or BTC will still be there when I want to withdraw.

Isn't the charge back risk just in a different place on the two markets?

A market with a non-PayPal USD deposit method would be nice.

I wonder if Mt. Gox will switch to debit cards only, with the presumably lower chance of reversal.

There are no chargebacks if you use LRUSD or Pecunix (both supported by BCM).

If you want to use PayPal or Moneybookers, you get to delay confirmation for 10 days, which will hopefully reduce the risk. If a chargeback does happen, it only affects one person instead of bankrupting the entire market.

Ah, okay. I forgot about the other methods because I don't use them. Maybe I should look into them.

The problem with the bitcoin markets is that they all use some other online payment processor, killing one major advantage of Bitcoin, the very low cost of transactions.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Is it possible to use Google Checkout for transactions?  How about WorldPay?

The MadHatter's Bitcoin 4 Cash site http://vms43o4cqysakvyb.onion/ trades directly in several private currencies, such as the FRN, etc. So load up on Bitcoins and spread them around!

I think you are wrong. This topic is still very popular. What is more, I reckon, it doesn`t need even extra promotion with sites like https://promovideolab.com/ . So keep doing what you are doing and everything will be OK.

if there is any news mentioning that bitcoin is dying I think it's bad news, and with good news from a very influential country or from big investors it could affect the price increase.

do not believe in the obscure news that mentions that bitcoin is dead, I am sure it is not true and bitcoin has only experienced price reductions and I think for the end of this year I am sure the price of bitcoin will rise again.

The barrier is the volatility, how can merchant adopt bitcoin as payment methode if the fluctuations price could harm them, can make them bankrupt. We need real established company that adopt bitcoin so bitcoin can get more thrust from people. We need to increase bitcoin usage but not in the exchange but in other place.

nope. bitcoin is so popular that's why it's called the kin of the cryptocurrency. maybe you're right in term that it is barely used. the bitcoin we know has a high price and it so valuable. and because it has an high price, few people only can afford to buy and used it. because for the others bitcoin is difficult to obtain compare to the other cryptocurrency.

it's all news that won't be true, bitcoin will never die, and I think with a lot of positive news about the problem of the world economy, I'm sure I will be able to change the price of bitcoin.
