I just wanted to note that CryptoXChange is still the only exchange that does not allow BTC withdrawals via API (among the exchanges that allow API trading).

The following other exchanges have this feature: MtGox, Intersango, Bitfloor, Bitstamp, Kapiton, CampBX.

I've been asking them for this feature for about six months now.  Cryptoexchange is the only exchange that forces you to use their website for BTC withdrawals.  Oh yeah, and they also have the slowest, most difficult-to-use website of all the exchanges.

CryptoExchange: please get with the program.

The printing press heralded the end of the Dark Ages and made the Enlightenment possible, but it took another three centuries before any country managed to put freedom of the press beyond the reach of legislators.  So it may take a while before cryptocurrencies are free of the AML-NSA-KYC surveillance plague.

isn't this a nice and easy-to-implement security feature?
of course mtgox like api keys are the way to go...

Maybe they want CryptoXchange to be as bad as Gox, and bot trade it to death.

Probably the wider issue (and it is not just crypto that has it) is easily extracting currency.

You do realize, don't you, that a lot of the time when you're trading with a bot on one exchange you're really trading with a human on another exchange via an arbitrage mediated by the bot?

I guess if you want to have your little walled-off exchange that is an island unto itself, fine, but I think you're alone in that desire.  If you want that, use litecoin.

Yes, that's an issue too, but unlike BTC-withdrawal-via-API it is caused by the brokenness of the banking system as a whole rather than the brokenness of one particular exchange's operators.

Sorry I did not see your post earlier, because there was something else I wanted to add.  I notice the $350,000 loss over on bitcoinica was (apparently) an api hack.  Perhaps Crypto are happy with being different.  It's still a pain extracting funds, but it still works.

Also, for clarification, I don't use bots (I must be too stupid), and I like the exchanges I use and arbitrage, but mostly just cashing profits.  As for altcoins, no thanks - that was a passing curiosity with i0coin with a difficulty under 14.  If I'm alone with my view, that's fine.  I see you have several good and highly technical projects that work well and certainly other people also like automatic trading.

As a warning, if you get a Starfish deposit account, the security means you don't get to interrogate your account.  You actually have to communicate with someone.

Starfish BCB - safe under a rock.
