Hello everyone.

I would like to present a new Bitcoin exchange –  https://bitcurex.com

At the very  beginning the introduction has been supposed to be funny, but English is not our native language, so instead of searching the Internet for some proper jokes and convert a language so they would be related to Bitcoin, I will start from bitcurex's features that we have now, followed by what we are currently working on, to what we want to do in the future.
Some words of explanation has to be written. Bitcurex.com is based on former Polish Bitcoin exchange named Bitchange.pl. It has been closed a some time ago and till now there weren’t any operators capable of handling the exchange
So now its back and its better than ever. New operator, new features, new name, but the same and perfect look.

What we have now:

   1.   One EUR market
   2.   SEPA and International deposits/withdrawals
   3.   No trading fees - for now
   4.   Bank charges as low as possible
   5.   English language support
   6.   Technical support 24/7
   7.   Trading API
   8.   Automatic EUR deposits
   9.   Live chat
   10.   Live statistics
        11.   Bitcurex.com on bitcoincharts.com

What is new?
   1.   BCC (Bitcurex Card) EUR (available, trough our site bitcurrex.com, for security reasons)
   2.   Fast ,1 -hour- top -free of charge withdrawals to BCC
   3.   Some annoying security features (described below)

What we are currently working on:

   1.   Adding site to bitcoincharts.com - done
   2.   Implementing new markets – PLN will be available within 2 – 3 weeks
   3.   BCC – for PLN, USD, GBP markets
   4.   Target2 withdrawals and deposit system for EUR( withdrawals system similar to elixir,sorbnet, with the difference that in the European Union, EUR currency is available on the account after several minutes after issuing
   5.   Multi language support: Polish, Spanish

What we would like to do in the nearest future:
   1.   More markets USD, GBP
   2.   Multi language support: German, Suomi, French (more?)
   3.   24/7 Multilingual technical support (right now only English and Polish available)
   4.   Reduce bank charges to zero “0” for withdrawals and deposits. (negotiations with the bank will be needed in the future)
   5.   BCC issued by other card providers.
   6.   Other security features: SMS codes, Tokens,
   7.   BCC manager
   8.   Multilingual BCC Card-carrier support – now only English available
   9.   Other sites exchange ratios for specified currency – fully customizable

What I haven’t mentioned is security, We think that the security is essential to all exchanges. Apart from bitcurex.com protection which you can find described at our web site, there are several annoying security features for users:
   1.   To be able to withdraw Bitcoins and/or fiat currency you will have to set (pre-define) bank account number along with all necessary data to perform wire transfer, and set your Bitcoin address to which the BTC will be sent after withdrawing.
   2.   To be able to change that you would have to have access to your e-mail account. So in case your password is stolen, no one will be able to steal your property stored at bitcurex.com
   3.   You can lock your account to prevent any modification such as: password change, BTC address, bank account number etc.
   4.   You can generate API keys with locked function: ie. Buy or sell, cancel orders, withdrawals
   5.   E-mail notification, for every balance change, fulfilled offer etc. All notification are set by default, you can either choose to have some notification or non at all.
   6.   Counter of bad logins along with theirs IP, so You can see if there was attempt to log in your account.

You can read more about security at bitcurex.com

And now.... may We present you the Bitcurex Card.


Its an easy choice when you want to quickly withdraw your money, or you can just sell your Bitcoins and give the card as a present.
The cards does not have any card holder name so it is an ideal gift, like gift cards, with the difference BCC can be loaded and use multiple times.
Normal withdrawals via wire transfers can take up to 10 days, with a massive charges for wire transfer.
BCC lets you withdraw any currency*, to your personal card in a matter of one hour. Nothing is as fast as Bitcoin but one hour is quite fast, for a fiat currency. There are no fees to withdraw to the cards from your account at bitcurex.com
This card lets you pay with it or withdraw cash from ATM, anywhere you are in the WORLD. So if you are going on a vacation to foreign country, exchange your Bitcoins, get some cards, and you are ready to go. You can also use the card to pay via internet in any online shops.
*You can always pretend that this card is an new feature of BTC: “You just have to load the BTC to it and voilà, the system converts it to an appropriate currency and you are able to pay with BTC Cheesy”, Imagine all these chick on the vacation that you will have to explain to.

BCC has got some limitations, and fees that we have no power over it. For detailed description go to bitcurex.com → BCC tab, and Fees and Limits tab.

More detailed info about the BCC will be soon available at bitcurrex.com, and bitcurex.com. The site is not yet operating, we are waiting for the cards to be printed, but at the beginning only the EUR will be available.

When we open new markets, other BCC with USD, GBP and PLN currency will be available.

How does it work exactly? Each card comes with a card-carrier on which there is a reference number, and PIN in closed envelope. To be able to withdraw money from bitcurex.com you would have to put the reference number in the bank account number field at bitcurex.com, under your details tab.
And that is it, you can withdraw to it any time, during the day, night or even the weekends.

Last but not least. Welcome to bitcurex.com, feel free to contact us any time, brows trough our content, ask any question you like.

Happy trading.

We are very glad you like the cards.

There will be 4 types of cards

EUR USD GBP PLN

(for the EUR,USD and GBP the card will look the same, only the proper currency sign will be lighted)

At the moment we are waiting for the cards to be printed. First EUR cards which will be compatible with our market EUR. and later other currency.

In the future (in plans for now) one card (probably MasterCard) with one currency, but could be used as any currency Worldwide. As soon as we are redy with them We will annouc it here and at the site.

Best Regards

Yes You are right. Its only a random number, the MasterCard will have no currency markers, and will be an PLN card
Once they arrive, image will be replaced.

That is why they are not yet available, they will be at bitcurrex.com (our online shop with BTC module installed)

The cards will have 4830 at the beggining, for the USD GBP EUR currencies.

Sounds like you hit every security checkboxes in the list.

But I would like to remind bitcoiners to not trust anybody and never to use an exchange as your wallet. Also, don't forget to ask question and DO YOUR HOMEWORK.


Is there a way to do automatic withdrawal to a locked address? For example, user ALICE haven't done any transactions in the last 30 days, transfer ALL bitcoin to her specified address. This way, anybody who forgot that their bitcoin is at an exchange will have it at their saving wallet in 30 days.

Also, what 2 factor authentication method do you have available?

Wait, are you saying you will eventually get to the U.S. market with the BCC cards? And how long will that take?

If so, does that mean people in the U.S. can get the BCC card and use it for credit card purchases or withdrawing cash at ATMs?

Automatic withdrawal to a bitcoin address is not a good idea. What if the user has lost the private key or had it stolen by malware?

It is purchased and now we have all rights to it. It has been reviewed and modified to our needs. One of the technical stuff member is r50zyry5 author of How to secure Bitcoin's, your Virtual Money in hacking9 - worldwide security magazine August 2011 - special edition. He also created of the Secure Wallet Linux.
Instead of creating something that has been already crated, tested and applied for public use, We decided to buy the engine, which is well known to us.

Shortly we will include the phone number, and other messengers such as Skype and ICQ.

Automatic withdrawal to a bitcoin address is not a good idea. What if the user has lost the private key or had it stolen by malware?

Agree its not a good idea. We might think of some kind of notification when the user haven't been online for many days, and inform him about balance. We will sure add it to a “to do list”

Wait, are you saying you will eventually get to the U.S. market with the BCC cards? And how long will that take?

If so, does that mean people in the U.S. can get the BCC card and use it for credit card purchases or withdrawing cash at ATMs?

Yes that is exactly what I mean. Once the USD market will be available, BCC USD cards will be available too. You can use the card to purchase online, “offline” and withdraw money from ATM.
Time between issuing withdrawal to the card to credit the cards balance is approx 1 hour.

Time when we want to do this is:
1. 2-3 weeks PLN market
2. 2-3 weeks USD,GBP market (from working PLN market)

Basically 4 to 6 weeks from now. It might be faster or it might be a bit slower. But once the USD market is available the BCC will be already available.

Yes. everyone should take at least some precaution when dealing with money and bitcoins.
We are new we know that, but everyone at least once was new. Probably we will encounter some problems, as all do, what matter is how we will deal with them.

We are very focused on that exchange, its not "home" "after work" project. We are dedicated to bitcurex.com, and we will our best to serve the best service possible.

Best Regards.

If all is above board, this is really good news. Now, is there a reason Gox won't issue cards you can load with BTC?
