Lost $250 during bitcoin transfer from mt gox to SR.
I know I didn't send it to the wrong address. I was connected to a 3rd party VPN that I use to browse the web anonymously. Could this have anything to do with it? Can anyone provide me with help? I could send a little bitcoinage to anyone that can help me retrieve them.
I am just going to start out by saying that I don't have any investment into Mt. Gox. I don't care if they succeed as a company because I have belief in the Bitcoin protocol, not any mask that a company tries to put on it. I am speculating on this and watching the markets because I am enthralled in Bitcoin! That said... EDIT: User TwinWinNerD has confirmed that the wallet I was talking about belong to Bitstamp bases off of a withdrawal that came from that address. If the MtGox Situation: Crisis Strategy Draft PDF is to be believed... "At this point 744,408 BTC are missing due to malleability-related theft which went unnoticed for several years. The cold storage has been wiped out due to a leak in the hot wallet." & 2,000 BTC in the Hot Wallet w/ liabilities of 624,408 BTC(Customers) +120000 ( MtGox) This document was published by an unverified source, and it reads like a low level high school report. My experience tells me that business professionals could and would write a better report than that. What is your guy's take on this? EDITED
What is the easiest way to transfer bitcoins or cash from Mt. Gox to Bitstamp?
I currently have several bitcoins in Mt. Gox. Right now, Mt. Gox is trading much higher than Bitstamp (~$10). I am looking for the easiest and cheapest way to transfer these bitcoins over to Bitstamp. Can I simply withdraw the bitcoins from Gox into a wallet, then transfer them into Bitstamp? Also, because of the price difference, would it be better to cash out, send the money, and then re-buy? Looking for some advice since all the info I can find about this was posted back in April. Thanks!
Bitcoin transfer from Mt Gox direct to SilkRoad account
Is this a good idea if you bought the Bitcoins on MtGox with money transferred into your account from your bank account? AFAIK you can change your receive ID for every transaction so it shouldnt be able to trace that particular payment from MtGox has gone to my SilkRoad account. If it's not a good idea, is it wise to first transfer money from MtGox to your digi wallet and then into SR? Bit of a noob to bitcoins so apologies.
Anyone here dealing with Bitcoin and know what what tax or other legal implications there might be for a long term resident? Particularly by using local bank transfers in/out of Mt. Gox?
I sat on the sidelines a long time thinking about bitcoin and now I'm kicking myself for delaying so many months. I was a bit surprised just recently to learn that Mt. Gox was based in Japan and thought I might as well dive in. However, I'm a bit worried about it greatly complicating taxes or representing an unknown risk due to unclear legal status. I can of course try to ask a tax professional, but since most won't know a thing about bitcoin, I'd like to be able to guide them to the best official information possible.
Issue transfering bitcoins from mt gox to my wallet.
I transferred some bitcoins from mt gox to the client on my machine. The balance received remains zero I have doublechecked the address. My bitcoin client has connections and I was able to find the completed transaction on block explorer. Are there any other steps I need to take. I was really excited about trading bitcoins. this is putting a damper on the experience. Edit. I just found something on block explorer the transaction is listed as "not yet redeemed". is there a way to redeem them manually?
I just recently submitted a transaction from my mt.gox to SR account for 1.98 BTC. I've completed a transaction before successfully today and was just making sure everything was going smoothly. Can someone tell me what this means? https://blockchain.info/address/1FuBrC1SKLz7CrLkPM7UvRFxYs7sV6ytkP I see where it says -1 BTC and only 1 confirmation which is making me feel sketchy about it. Is it all good?
