I used the exchange and basiclly it was having horrible problems with not being able to withdraw btc. I had 700$ in their. finnaly i managed to withdraw it by converting it back to LR. I had sent emails to support, the owner and pmed the owner. the owner hasnt been online here for more then a year. None responded. I personally think the site is closed and wont be reopening. I hope it does i liked the exchange.

Same, A couple people told me that the owner was a scammer so it would kinda make sense. I really hope not but it would make alot of sense if he did. He was waiting for 10000 btc and finnaly hit it and locked everyones btc in aswell

Sounds like a great business plan.
1) open an exchange
2) get as much BTC and fiat currency deposited as possible
3) close exchange and run off with with the money

You can't win if you don't play. But you can't play if you lose all your chips. First I found bitcoin (BTC). Then I found something better, Monero (XMR). See GetMonero.org

yeah..but at least it opens up the field for new competitors who aren't scammers. I keep my coins spread out. I didn't have too many coins at btcex but enough to hurt a little - I didn't trust the site owner but the volatility made for great trades.

It's kind of hard to know whether some things should go in service discussions, trading or scam accusations at the moment and putting the service discussions and service announcements in the Marketplace forum only makes it even more confusing.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

LOL. I saw someone over there complain that "withdrawals were disabled"...


There has got to be a better way to sell BTC than with hackable web sites...?

Are you referring to BTC-e which just suffered a security incident?

This thread is referring to Btcex:
