EDITED: No trade was registered for many many hours some time. MTGOX was down and is up again.
What happened is now the question.

Looks like their trade engine is. Other exchanges are unaffected on bitcoincharts, while for MtGox USD, EUR and GBP there have been no trades for a while.

I guess they are not really interested in making money. Grin

It looks like orders are still being placed --> Btccharts.com
That way one can estimate which way it will go after ther trade engine comes back up.

-edit- although I just tried (both mtgox.com and classic.mtgox.com) and no order could be placed

Is anyone else seeing MtGox's reported volume decreasing for the last few hours or so? It used to be ~33000 BTC, now it's ~26000 BTC and still dropping (sit on the frontpage for a few minutes, and watch the ticker at the top).

Am I being stupid and just missing something, or..?

I believe thats volume for a 24h period, and since no trades are taking place, the volume for this 24 hour period is decreasing

This could be a good sign...

Imagine if they got hacked again, but this time their countermeasures kicked in and froze trading until they get everything sorted out.

Of course, if I were mt.gox I would not advertise this... or would I?...

May just be canceling orders!

Some of the chatty Cathy's over on BTC-e said they were able to pull BTC out of gox since this started, andI doubt cash would be the same story.

If you mean orderbook volume, it is really droped bitcoin-analytics.com
from 330k USD to 230k USD and also interesting that orderbook price is changing over time  in opposite direction.
Looks really that orders are cancelled gradually one by one. from both bids and asks sides.

Could be this, could be just some technical issue. The thing with gox is: you never know whether you are being goxed or foxed.

The best strategy here IMO is to not play. It is really fun to be just an observer. And I am speaking from experience here. It is  much less fun watching Bitcoinica debacle because Bitcoin Magazine has slightly more than 1000$ in limbo there.

the freenode chat has nothing to report either besides that tux does not pick up his phone.
I quote from freenode:

<  neofutur> quotation is suspended for more than 2 hours now, no official word until now, probably a technical problem
[19:51] <neofutur> MT dont answer the phone until now
[19:52] <neofutur> I keep trying to contact him

Since I'm buying some coins on Monday, hopefully this will (temporarily) reduce the price Wink

Seriously though, I wonder what effect Mt Gox suddenly folding would have?

ha! yeah I hope it reduces the price too!

If mt.gox folds people will just use the next best exchange. I don't think it will have anything but a temporary effect on the economy

Are you saying you noticed it as well? It was like 10 AM UTC. I was also coming home after a night out though so I didn't bother mentioning anything just in case I was just dumb at the moment.

Check the orders between 9-10 AM UTC on 6/16. There are like 10 minute gaps.

My freakin' luck.

I literally haven't traded anything in over a year. Just this morning I was like, "What the hay" transferred a majority of my BTC (I don't have many to begin with) to Mt. Gox and leave for a nice stroll.  Come back and see this and brain goes into panic mode.

Looks like I was able to bring my BTC back home, so that's good.

The symptoms are others than one week before: Order list is seen now, orders can be cancelled, but new orders are kept in a "pending" state.

So I think, for some reason new orders cannot be placed, but existing ones are cancelled, so the gap between bid and ask grows.

Suppose it's only a technical issue. Waiting on Mt.Gox to wake up.

I wonder, currently if you look at orderbook you can see how price is changing, and on the bid side it is droping and on asks side it is rising.

Would it be from technical and financial point of view better to shut down the orderbooks too , because  in current situation when there is no actual trading orderbook cannot be qualified as representing actual market status.

I mean will this induce panic or? What am I missing?

It's quite likely that there is nothing to worry about. We'll just have to wait a bit to find out what's going on. People seem to be paranoid about Gox these days for absolutely no reason. They've had some issues with Dwolla which have more to do with Dwolla than Gox, and suddenly people are all "it's going to fold any day". Give me a break for Satoshi's sake.

At the very least, Gox has a serious communication problem. How long did it take them to even start explaining the Dwolla situation?

The issue leading people to worry "it's going to fold any day now" is not Dwolla, but bank wires too. We would understand if it was just Dwolla, and many would buck up and pay the ~$50 cost of a bank wire. The problem is bank wires are delayed too, for no good reason, for weeks before they ever get initiated into the banking system, and that can't be Dwolla's fault at all.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper or hardware wallets instead.

The symptoms are others than one week before: Order list is seen now, orders can be cancelled, but new orders are kept in a "pending" state.

So I think, for some reason new orders cannot be placed, but existing ones are cancelled, so the gap between bid and ask grows.

Suppose it's only a technical issue. Waiting on Mt.Gox to wake up.

I wonder, currently if you look at orderbook you can see how price is changing, and on the bid side it is droping and on asks side it is rising.

Would it be from technical and financial point of view better to shut down the orderbooks too , because  in current situation when there is no actual trading orderbook cannot be qualified as representing actual market status.

I mean will this induce panic or? What am I missing?

Unless an anniversary hack is revealed, I dont think so. Whenever MtGox was down in the past (unless there was a hack) trading just commenced naturally afterwards.

Yeah, it's currently 05:31 in Japan.

So Mark's probably sleeping.

However, I have some viewpoints:

1. Mark need to trust 1 or two others to have admin access to MtGox. What if he gets hit by a bus ? Where's the backup solution ?
2. As MtGox is the biggest exchange, they should take great care to monitor all systems 24/7, if not they lose business, and trust is eroded.
3. There's a lot of businesses depending on MtGox being available, and therefore point 2.) is extra important.

MtGox has already clearly shown that they are not good at communication with the customers and PR work overall, so they should actually get help from somebody that is good at this.

In the end, I don't think there's anything to worry about, once Mark gets back, he'll probably kick all in working order again.

HOWEVER, this is simply not good enough in the corporate world of today. When Gox decided to run their exchange 24/7, that's also what they need to do in a serious way, then 'glitches' are not acceptable. And if it occurs, it should be fixed, and the community should get an honest and candid explanation of what happend, and it should not happen again.

If I were Mark, I'd let external experts review the code base to avoid future "glitches" and also have a financial audit of MtGox to regain trust in the community.

I have no doubt that Mark believes in bitcoin and work hard to make MtGox a good exchange, but he needs to see his own limitations, and to delegate work, he can't do it all himself.

Because of all the unrest these days (delayed payments etc), personally I don't hold any funds at MtGox, be it USD or BTC at the moment.

I would love to see MtGox succeed, but they have to up their game, as other professional players WILL move into this market.

One thing that I absolutely would love to see was better follow up of withdrawals. Customers actually invest their funds, and this is money that the customers own. When withdrawals take 30 days or more, these monies are being held 'hostage' and the customers needs to be notified about the status of their withdrawal in a much better way.

There should be absolutely no need for any customers coming running to this forum to resolve a withdrawal request.

Many people are too proud to admit to weaknesses and problems. IF there's USD liquidity problems at Gox, which many customers seems to believe, then it would be better if MtGox was honest about it, and told the community about the current situation, and made a plan to get out of that situation, perhaps raising fees temporarily and doing other measures to balance the books.

If it is so that only the customers that complains the loudest are the ones getting their cases solved, so that the Gox crew can avoid the fire, while the rest who wait in patience are the ones having to endure the painful waiting of their funds, it is a very unfortunate situation and while Gox is perhaps scared of telling how the situation is, perhaps they're afraid of losing customers. Not telling how things really is, could backfire pretty hard in the end. As we all know, the road to "hell" is paved with good intentions.

It's also very dangerous not to care about the customers, because once there are viable alternatives, customers will move to other exchanges. Being biggest today, doesn't mean you'll stay biggest forever.

Swift handling of customer funds is the single most important thing.

I called Mark's cell twice and sent him a text.  No reply,  but it was around 4AM Sunday morning in Tokyo.

I propose one of the following:


1. Mark appoints a co-admin that can monitor gox, so Mark can sleep well.
2. I suggest that a bucket filled with cold tap water is attached to the roof above Mark's bed, whenever the need arise, some reputable Community members can send a txt/mail to a dedicated device that will turn the bucket upside down, and thus wet-booting Mark so he can mend his Gox services.

For all we know, perhaps he's gone somewhere and will be unavailable the entire weekend, perhaps he forgot his cell at home as well..

Update, seems like we had a trade:

Code:
Jun 23, 2012, 20:55:00 6.40000 0.20

A code review could've been done on a designated machine, in a designated office, while Mark watches over the back of the Auditor, it depends how seriously you want to have the audit done. Outsourcing it to some random company surely could mean a lot of trouble.

The relatively small 180 or so bitcoin loss I took from the (most recent) bitcoinica debacle helped me realize that I should be in total control of my bitcoins as often as possible.  I hope nothing serious is happening here, but if it is something serious, then my appreciation for my appreciation of one of bitcoin's most revolutionary properties - that people can safeguard their own wealth - will grow even more than it already has over the past several weeks.  Good luck everyone.

from what i can tell it seems like there was some sort of an error in the system that set off a manual intervention....somehow someone set a buy order without any BTC amount attached to it.  very odd and am awaiting an official statement for gox

Hi everyone! Sorry for the little Glitch but everything is back in order. We will also would like to thanks everyone who contacted us to warm us in order to fix it.

Here you are the Official announcement regarding the freeze.

https://support.mtgox.com/entries/21616122-resolved-outage-30254-trading-unavailalable


[OUTAGE-30254 ] Trading Unavailalable
Hello Mt.Gox Users,

At approximately 23:00JST on June 23, 2012, trading became unavailable due to an invalid trade order which was not checked correctly by the Add Order API. The trading system however, detected this and halted itself to wait for further  instructions,  resulting in this outage. 
 
Trading is now back to normal.  We apologize for the inconvenience our users have suffered because of this outage and would like to thank you for your patience through this issue. If you have any further questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact Mt.Gox Support.

HUGE props to MtGox on the transparency here. I am really thankful that they were willing to explain the exact nature of the problem, so that we can all see what a big deal it is not.

Sure, downtime like this should not happen, and will only help competitors. Sure, somebody should be "on call" to fix these kinds of things. However, mistakes happen, we all know that, and the important thing is how one reacts to them.

Should slack cutting be based on the fact that there are bigger fuckups than Mt Gox's downtime or on the fact that the downtime was easily preventable with the standard practice of unit tests? I think the latter.

For all you know, there could have been a subtle bug in the unit tests.

There are people who spend their lives on software verification and guess what: so far, there is no silver bullet.

It seems that the mtgox get some automated circuits, that's good sign.

It would be better if the automated circuits actually displayed a message on the site, like on Heroku:

"Our automated systems detected a potential problem and all trading has been halted. Our technicans have been notified and we're looking into this problem. We will provide more information as it arrives".

This way, there would be no panic and people would just patiently wait for the situation to be resolved.

a bug resulting in a halt is always possible in a system like this.

+1 for transparency.

-1 for taking too long to post a statement.

Well, I told you so. The issue smelled like a technical glitch and that it was. Mt. Gox is still not the biggest company in the world and it happened at an unfortunate time, so I think it's fair to cut them some slack. However I hope they learn from this and make sure that in the future there is someone on hand to handle it without a 4 hour delay.

Testing might be an issue as well but testing complex systems in a fool proof way is not easy. Bugs can always happen, the most important thing to learn from this is that it just can't all be up to Mark. There needs to be someone online, with access, when he's asleep.

I take no issue with this problem or the way it was handled.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper or hardware wallets instead.

I take issue with having to wait to get money out of Mt.Gox.  There is ZERO reason a $200 withdraw should take a week or more.

I received the same a couple of days ago, but did not react since I have already shared everything with them weeks ago.

I believe this recent mail could be a SPAM / FISHING attempt.

Check the link's address and see if it's actually MTGox.

I get this kind of shit daily too so I'd say no, not really related. I even get Runescape and WoW phishing emails on my 'beater' email too. (which is not related to those games whatsoever)

The same here, but this time it is just some bottleneck on bitcoincharts.com side. Now it seems to be fixed, and old trades are populated.
