CampBX - BitcoinWiki

Please Critique my First Project - A Bitcoin Market API Client

Hiya, so I've spent the last 2 months or so learning Haskell. I've finished the UPenn course, LYAH and a little bit of RWH.
I wanted to get a project going so I tried making an API client for the CampBX Bitcoin Market[1]. I started out by following along with the FPComplete Mailchimp API Tutorial[2].
I'm asking you beautiful people for any feedback on it so I can be sure that I'm on the right track here, stuff like code style/idioms, project layout, public interface, implementation, docs, ideas for new features, anything you want to tell me, etc.:
https://github.com/prikhi/campbx-haskell
Typical usage would be something like this[3]:
main :: IO () main = do cfg <- defaultCampBXConfig _ <- runCampBX cfg $ do totalAskVolume <- calculateAskVolume <$> getDepth liftIO . putStrLn $ "Total Ask Volume: " ++ show totalAskVolume return () calculateAskVolume :: Depth -> BTCAmount calculateAskVolume depthList = sum . map askAmount . asks $ depthList where askAmount (Ask (_, q)) = q 
There are still some things I want to work on:
Also I tried adding "default-extensions: OverloadedStrings" to the .cabal file and removing the pragmas from the source files, but the package wouldn't build :(

CampBX makes me butthurt (who's right here?)

Update: I asked the tech for a specific quote on the time/cost to recover these 3 bitcoins. Here is his response for anyone that might be interested:
"Dear [forwhat_itsworth], The sys admin usually takes 2-4 hours of billed time to recover BTCs sent to expired address or pooled addresses. The time is billed at $120 per hour."
I am dissapoint :|
Most aggravating situation yet. Does anyone mind weighing in (I haven't sent a response yet)? I know this is a wall of text but I would really appreciate some other opinions.
[forwhat_itsworth] User Posted on: 26 July 2013 09:06 PM Hello,
I'm sure I'm not the only person that has come up to your service desk with this issue, but basically I sent 3 BTC from my original CampBX Bitcoin address (1PptzuZXBs2QApiMWEFfhw6PiHa9fuHciT) to the Bitcoin app on my phone (13QqqRCtRyD5JyFCVXjdRKokFStuGbf7iU), which was successful. I then sent the Bitcoins back to my CampBX address (after the local trade I was going to go through with didn't happen), but they never arrived. I quickly realized that this address could have expired and that I am an idiot. This all happened on 7/23/13. I am hoping against hope there is some way to recover the private key to this wallet and recover the 3 Bitcoins that are within. Please advise.
Sincerely, [forwhat_itsworth]

Dear [forwhat_itsworth], Did you send the Bitcoins back to your "From" address 1PptzuZXBs2QApiMWEFfhw6PiHa9fuHciT? "From" addresses belong to a shared pool and there is no way to tracking the amount back to your account as it gets mixed up with all other user accounts.
Thank you, CBX Support
[forwhat_itsworth] User Posted on: 10 August 2013 02:31 AM
I don't understand how you could claim that there is no way of tracking this. It is quite easy: https://blockchain.info/address/1PptzuZXBs2QApiMWEFfhw6PiHa9fuHciT
[forwhat_itsworth] User Posted on: 16 August 2013 03:32 PM
Please assist. It has been another week. I desperately need these 3 bitcoins.
Thanks, [forwhat_itsworth]
[forwhat_itsworth] User Posted on: 23 August 2013 02:00 PM
Please assist me in recovering these 3 bitcoins. You can clearly see the trail of what happened via the blockchain: https://blockchain.info/address/1PptzuZXBs2QApiMWEFfhw6PiHa9fuHciT
Please see the previous posts for details and don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions. It has been 4 weeks now.
Camp BX Support Staff Posted on: 23 August 2013 02:41 PM
Dear [forwhat_itsworth], Whenever you need to transfer BTC, you have to go to CampBX Transfer->Bitcoin page and generate a fresh deposit address. This address is tied to your account, and any deposit sent to it will be credited instantly.
I can see that you sent 3 BTC to address "1PptzuZXBs2QApiMWEFfhw6PiHa9fuHciT". This is NOT a valid receipt address for your account. It is a shared address from a CampBX outbound pool, and we have no way of associating deposits sent to this address to your account.
I am afraid your 3 BTC are lost for good. Please read FAQ and follow instructions carefully to avoid losses like this in future.
Thank you, CBX Support
[forwhat_itsworth] User Posted on: 23 August 2013 03:01 PM
Thank you for your prompt reply. I do understand why this policy is in place, and it does make sense as a best practice, but the issue is that it was not clearly announced, and I had no way of knowing that my previously functioning address would suddenly stop working. I clearly sent bitcoins FROM this address, and then back TO this address, before realizing I no longer had access to it. I cannot find the exact date that this policy was implemented but I would think I made this transfer within 5 days of it being put in place. I am desperate here. 3 BTC may not seem like a lot but to me it is a very large amount of money that I cannot afford to simply lose because of a new policy that was suddenly put into place. Through the tracking I think it is quite clear that although this receipt address is no longer valid for my account, it once was, and is clearly related to a transaction I initiated. I am begging for you help here. I have very much appreciated CampBX's services thus far but this is a very aggravating situation that I am asking for your help with.
Sincerely, [forwhat_itsworth]
Camp BX Support Staff Posted on: 23 August 2013 03:37 PM
Dear [forwhat_itsworth], We understand your concern - this is not a policy issue, it is a technical issue (for almost all major Bitcoin websites). FROM addresses are plucked from a shared pool to minimize risk and fees, while TO addresses are generated specifically for user wallets. FROM and TO addresses have no correlation with each other.
The Bitcoins you sent would be mixed with hundreds of other transactions, and it will takes 3-5 hours of work to untangle and recover. We can bill out our sysadmin to you, but financially it will not make any sense because admin billing rate is $120 per hour.
Hope this helps.
Thank you, CBX Support
[forwhat_itsworth] User Posted on: 26 August 2013 05:07 PM
Thank you for your response. I understand how addresses work, and I do see the reasoning behind the internal CampBX 'laundry machine' of addresses to keep them anonymous and secure.
I have read in many forums and social platforms of similar incidents to this, where customers such as myself had a much quicker response by publicly posting the issue to Reddit.com or the CampBX Facebook page. I would prefer not doing this but this is becoming quite aggravating. I don't need a sysadmin to look at the blockchain. I can do that myself, and so can you.
If CampBX is unwilling to give me the 3 BTC's that I sent back to my previously functioning exchange address which my access was removed from with no notification other than a small line of red text and a FAQ that was just recently added on this topic within days of myself creating this ticket (I was unable to find the date/time this was introduced either on your site or publicly posted, please advise) I am sorely disappointed.
I'm sorry if I sound hostile here. I am simply frustrated. I have so far had excellent experience with CampBX and plan on extensively using their services in the future. I have given you every bit of patience and reasonable evidence I can provide to prove that this was my previously functioning address. If I still had the original bitcoin app on my phone I would simply send a small amount of bitcoins to this 1PptzuZXBs2QApiMWEFfhw6PiHa9fuHciT address to prove previous ownership of both of the addresses involved in these transactions, but I have since removed it due to an Android vulnerability.
It is simply unbelievable that there is no internal auditing system to correlate internal addresses' usage upon given time frames. I imagine that this will be addressed in the future as more issues such as this arise. My hope would be that even without this internal automated auditing system already in place you will be able to recover the 3 BTC's in question to my CampBX account.
Sincerely, [forwhat_itsworth]
Camp BX Support Staff Posted on: 30 August 2013 06:33 AM
[forwhat_itsworth], I think you might have misunderstood my previous reply here, so let me try to clarify.
Your lost deposit has nothing to do with expiring addresses, red print, or FAQ changes that happened on July 15th. You returned your Bitcoins to a "FROM" address. This is simply not supported by CampBX. Any Bitcoins returned to "FROM" address 1PptzuZXBs2QApiMWEFfhw6PiHa9fuHciT are lost and cannot be accounted for by our system.
Thank you, CBX Support

DO NOT USE CAMP BX.... It is another fraudulent business aiming to make huge money from the bitcoin bubble....

DO NOT USE CAMP BX.... DO NOT MAKE ANY LARGE DEPOSITS AT CampBX
This firm claims to have its office and servers located in Georgia, US. However, this guys sits outside the US and operates his platform... Googling down a bit, you will come to know that name of this guy is keyur mithawala.... and the servers to be located in Europe.
The name of the servers are
ERIC.NS.CLOUDFLARE.COM LARA.NS.CLOUDFLARE.COM
Doing a bit of thorough check, you will see that their servers are located in Europe.... find out yourself!!
Also the office address mentioned is a virtual one... its a virtual office using a rented mail redirecting service... its just a mailing address...
I was initially attracted by this platform, which seemed genuine...not anymore after seeing their false marketing....
This guy Keyur Mithwala is a bloody cheat... Dont ever make depoits at CampBX. This is another fraudulent business aiming to make huge money from the bitcoin bubble....

TIL: PayPal Instant exists, so now Coinbase -> PayPal -> any bank debit card

All in just a matter of minutes.
Cash out from Bitcoin to PayPal is available through a couple of other exchanges as well: e.g., EToro, and a bunch of others that might or might not either be legit or have not yet been cut off by PayPal, Bitcoins.Express, BTCRobo, BitcoinCashout, TheInstantExchange, BayBit and a dozen others.
Additionally, there are other methods for converting Bitcoin to a bank debit card. Square Cash App allows Bitcoin deposits to be converted to fiat and withdrawn instantly to a debit card. A number of P2P marketplaces have buyers who accept Bitcoin and pay in PayPal, transfer to a bank account, and a number of other methods. Do your own due diligence.
And, of course, using PayPal in the middle between Bitcoin and cash is something you don't want to use frequently nonetheless rely on. Consider spending your Bitcoin instead. There are gift cards on BitRefill, local stores that accept Bitcoin found through Yelp, and numerous other methods to spend bitcoin, and expect lightning, with instant transactions, to add even more.

How to buy these cheap coins right now

Since we've all been goxxed now is the time to buy those $50-60 coins floating around and profit from everybody else's misery. Or you could wait for Gox to come back online and crash down the price even further but good luck trying to do any trading there to buy coins, the trading engine is already broken I don't expect the new one to work flawlessly due to epic 3yr history of GOXXING
BTC-E.com
To pay into this exchange, you need a BTC-E code, PM or Okpay. Take pics of your ID and utility bill and pay the $10 to Okpay for 'quick verification'. You can pay bitcoins directly into your Okpay account for initial funding or wait and see how long it takes for reg verification.
Now either wire money, or instant money transfer (MoneyPolo, Contact-sys, Unistream) to fund your account or find an Okpay exchanger somewhere. Or Ukash/CashU. Just because contact-sys is Russian doesn't mean there aren't sending points in every country in the world.
BTC-E codes you buy on #bitcoin-otc from verified gpg authenticated traders with good ratings, or on bitcointalk.org forums in the currency exchange forums.
Perfect Money is a shady HYIP digital currency run by Russians much like Liberty Reserve. You sign up for free, and load your account with wires (if verified) or you use an exchanger. This is what talkgold.com is for to find legit exchangers. I use wm-center.com to wire WU/Moneygram and get PM. Click on 'Interkassa' payment method in BTC-E and select Perfect Money. Instant load.
You can also obviously dump Litecoins you bought on Vircurex to fund the account, or a gagillion PPcoins
Bitfloor.com
Fastest way to deposit is through CapitalOne P2P or cash deposit https://bitfloor.com/docs/#funding-deposit
Be aware Bitfloor is insolvent due to owing 25k bitcoins that were stolen last year but they have a repayment schedule that may or may not bankrupt them. Use at own risk but most ppl trade there everyday with no problems.
Bitstamp.net
Great exchange in Slovakia? I think. You have to pay with Euro SEPA wire, then for some stupid reason they convert the money to USD. You can pay in here using transferwise.com if you're from UK, or XEtrade and other Forex online money transfer companies. Google 'free money transfer fx' and review your options. Most don't charge you anything if over a certain amount of money. They take your internet billing or other local payment, convert to EUR and send SEPA for you if you request it. If they don't then check with Bitstamp what a SWIFT wire costs (probably nothing, I think they use Latvian banks that charge no receiving fees). If you want a bank account in Latvia then sign up here: http://www.rietumu.com/ if you have a local corporation or business where you live you can, maybe a personal account too. You can always incorporate a dirt cheap Delaware LLC or Oregon LLC from anywhere in the world and use it to open up worldwide bank accounts.
Bitcoin-24.com
Takes direct wires, all sorts of other methods: https://bitcoin-24.com/fees You can also use Liqpay if you have a USD or EUR card. Sign up to liqpay.com, then they block a small verification amount you have to sign into internet banking (for the card) to check. It's usually $1.something or less. After that you are verified to load $1-100 or so, but I'd just try $50 at first. Any more than that and Liqpay will seize the funds and ask for your bank to authorize a fax they send which no bank will do because of privacy reasons, so pointless to load anymore money. Liqpay may also call you to verify card details this is normal. Liqpay is meant for Russians and CIS countries to use like Ukraine so due to epic fraud of credit cards don't expect to load too much this way unless you find a Liqpay exchanger, but what's the point when you can just wire money to bitcoin-24 anyways.
Vircurex.com
Good exchange, had some problems due to DDoS but so did all exchanges. They only accept BTC, altcoins and VouchX for payment. You buy Vouchx here: https://www.aurumxchange.com/ or from somebody on Bitcointalk, or IRC (with rep). You can buy a bunch of litecoins anywhere to fund this exchange such as the bitcointalk forums or IRC. Warning: the so-called official twitter account is fake, don't use it.
Cavirtex.com
Can only fund if in Canada, they accept cash deposit and internet billing. Price has been steady at ~$90 all day though no panic selling.
LibertyBit.com
https://www.libertybit.com/funding various easy methods, new exchange in Canada that takes intl wires and shockingly Interac deposits (easily frauded).
Bitcoin China
https://btcchina.com/ fast growing exchange, you pay in with Alipay or Tenpay both Chinese methods that westerners can't use or figure out due to no translation. You can probably use Alipay if you find and exchanger to load it, they do exist. **Edit they now support Liberty Reserve deposit and withdrawal
Check english forums to see if anybody exchanging Alipay or taking wires.
CampBX.com
Accepts money orders, and CapitalOne P2P payments. Also accepts Dwolla but you need to be verified.
Bitcoin-central.net
Just had a major outage due to instawallet hack, appears to be back online. You get your own quasi-bank account when you verify here much like how ecardone.com (liberty reserve) does banking so can transfer to other users legally with vouchers. You can buy a voucher p2p on Bitcointalk forums or IRC or send a bankwire.
VirWoX.com
You can pay with Paypal to get Second Life "Linden Dollars" then convert to BTC, or at least you used to be able to. I have no idea if this is still the case I've never used them.
Or course there's all the fixed price exchangers
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Trade and https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=53.0 for everything from Moneypak to Skrill. You can also risk buying coins on Silk Road with moneypak
==============R U L E S ================================
Enjoy buying all the way down the crash once Gox comes back online and the great sell off begins! Hold them for a year and they'll be worth 10x as much just like the 2011 crash. Bonus points if you speculate on Litecoin, rumor has it Gox will be trading them when they come back online but again, this is MtGox we are talking about so the site could implode on the zerg rush of people trying to get into their accounts or trading engine could sell all your coins for $0.0001 again like they did in 2011.
Great successez!

It's time to stop the theft.

We've all seen the stories. Time after time. "My coins were stolen on site X!!", "I didn't have two-factor enabled, lost everything.", "Account Hacked, coins lost, plz help!!"
Frankly, I'm tired of it. I have a solution though. We, as a community, need to get sites that accept bitcoins for a specific users account to REQUIRE two-factor auth OR a pre-set withdrawal address that cannot be changed without both contacting support AND a 30 day waiting period, and to offer both.
If I have coins in my Mt Gox account, or my CampBX account and I want to withdraw them, they should only be able to be sent to my wallet, or require two-factor auth. This precaution would stop most of the thefts I've seen on this subreddit from happening, as even if an account is compromised, the coins would be sent to the account holders wallet.

I run a Bitcoin trading bot on 5 exchanges, AMA

A lot of people were asking about my bot and one asked me to do an AMA, so here I am.
During the last bubble I wrote a trading bot in Java using the XChange Financial Exchange Library with the goal of slowly selling off a chunk of my Bitcoins as the price rises (and make a little extra off of the extreme volatility). It runs on MtGox/Bitstamp/BTCE/CampBX/Kraken and I hope to add BTCChina when the bugs in XChange are fixed.
The bot has four main goals:
So as an example, I would give the bot 10 BTC and instruct it to start selling at $1000 with $100 orders. It would place the first order when the value of the 10 BTC was $10100. The BTC amount would be 0.099 BTC and the sell price would be $1010 -> adjusted by the trade fee of the exchange -> adjusted by the profit I want -> $1057.37. When that order is filled it would create a buy for 0.099 BTC -> adjusted by trade fee -> adjusted by profit % -> 0.099897 BTC at $1001.03.
So every time I sell and buy back the Bitcoins I make a small profit. I dynamically increase the profit % in times like today where there's lots of volatility.
Obviously this isn't an optimal strategy, because I am selling off Bitcoins at lower than future prices. But that's part of what I want anyway, to slowly cash out a % of my Bitcoins.
I'm hoping to eventually release at least the source code to the bot, because I think increasing the liquidity on the exchanges would help stabilize the price. But for now it's very much in Alpha, I want to run it for a year or so to iron out all the bugs.

I applied for a mortgage last week. The underwriter wanted documentation on the "mysterious" $5,000 deposit on my bank statement. Now he won't stop asking me about Bitcoin!

I'm buying a condo and recently applied for a mortgage. For those unaware, when you apply for a mortgage they request bank statements at least once or twice during the process to make sure you aren't taking loads of money into or out of your accounts.
I've been a Bitcoin believer for a while now, and thought it finally felt "right" to cash out some of my Bitcoin to use the money for closing costs on my first home purchase. So one of my checking statements showed a $4,985 deposit from Dwolla. I got a call Monday from the mortgage processor asking for backup for the deposit. Then for backup for the deposit to my Dwolla account. Then for an explanation to the question "what the hell is CampBX".
I tried my best to quickly and concisely explain Bitcoin, the loan processor I guess passed the message on to the underwriter, and within an hour I was on the phone with the underwriter for over an hour explaining the WONDERS of the BITCOIN!
At first the guy was talking to me like I was a total scam artist, and within an hour he was on the bitcoin wiki and taking notes in total interest. I've talked to him twice since and felt like you guys would be able to appreciate this story. It made me pretty happy and gave me a little more confidence in Bitcoin's ability to one day be adopted by the general public. :D

Any news on bitcoin transfers out of CampBX

Trying to transfer bitcoin out of CampBX, I've been getting the error "Cold wallet maintenance in progress. Please reattempt after 5 hours," for at least 24 hours now.
If I try to submit a ticket on their Kayako desk, that's also not working. "We encountered a problem (cross-site request forgery detected); please try again"
If you have bitcoin on CampBX, have you kissed them goodbye at this point? Or has anyone out there actually succeeded in making a withdrawl recently?
EDIT: Over the course of several months, I eventually got most of my money out of there. What a pain!

Every time you deal with lag and downtime on MtGox, you're accepting the role of battered housewife. It's time to move on...

...to another exchange. Bitfloor, Bitstamp, btc-e, bitcoin-24, CampBX would all love your business.
edit: MOAR EXCHANGES!!

[PSA] Can we please stop posting price updates using the Mt. Gox price?

I understand that we are potentially heading into another exciting phase of Bitcoin, and just to be clear, I am perfectly fine with giving price updates for when we reach milestone price points. That being said, can we please stop focusing exclusively on the Mt. Gox price point?
I would encourage everyone to head over to bitcoinaverage.com, and click the icon that says "ignore Mt. Gox." You will notice that the price is significantly lower. Why? Well, let's think about it for a moment. If you have been following Bitcoin for at least a couple of months, you will know that USD withdrawals (as well as many other currencies if I'm not mistaken) have been disabled for some time. As a result, the only real option for people to get money out of Mt. Gox is to... You guessed it; buy coins from Gox and transfer them out to either another exchange or their wallet. As a result, Gox's price has been artificially inflated for quite some time. Fortunately, people are starting to see the writing on the wall it seems, and are moving their business to other exchanges such as Bitstamp and Camp BX, which will naturally start to reduce the price disparity between Gox and everyone else.
I would propose that going forward, we start using the Bitcoin Average (ignoring Gox) price to report price related news to everyone. In doing so, we will accomplish a few things: One, we will be giving people a realistic price for what they can expect to make if they were to cash in their coins at an exchange where they can quickly move their fiat out.
Two, we will be doing our part in insuring that one exchange (Gox in this case) is not receiving undeserved attention from newcomers in the market.
Anyone else agree?

CampBX deposited my $1000 Money Order as $197, and are refusing to change it.

I sent a $1000.00 USPS Money Order to CampBX on Nov. 6th. The tracking info said it was delivered on Nov. 9th.
On Nov. 13, they deposited $197.00 into my account. Note that my M/O was for $1000.00, but only $197 was deposited. I have never held money in this account before, so I know that I'm not getting the transactions mixed up. The M/O deposit is the only transaction my CampBX account has seen.
I opened a help ticket on the 13th stating my problem, and they replied back and said that the money was deposited into my account, and closed the ticket.
I opened a new help ticket the next day. They asked that I attach a scan of the USPS M/O receipt, which I did. (It shows the M/O serial #, $ Amount, Date, and "To Payee").
Fast forward several days, and many "We are looking into the issue" responses. On the 20th, they replied back to me stating the following
"We will need to know if 1000$ was cashed by us. Please understand that we process multiple MOs per day. For us to look in to the matter we need documentation that it was cashed by us at our specific bank. Ask USPS and they will give you all the information on whereabout of your MO. Your issues is very important to us and in order to resolve we need proper documentation."
What does that even mean!? I'm sorry that your bookkeeping is so awful that you can't even keep track of M/O's you deposited, but that's not my fault!
I went to the Post office and the post master said about the only thing I could do is pay them ~$5 for a "tracker", which is essentially a front/back scan of the M/O. Maybe I can send this to CampBX to finally get my money?
This is my first transaction with CampBX, and I really feel defrauded. On the date (Nov. 13) that I should have received the proper deposit, I could have bought BTC ~$350. Today, it's around $800. I don't have to do the math for you to prove how badly I got fleeced...
*UPDATE: Nov 25: The full deposit amount has been posted to my account. Thank you for finally clearing up this issue. Now, my only question is could you take that full deposit amount and exchange it for the Bitcoins that I should have been able to purchase on the 13th? Your chart shows that the high on the 13th was $398.99. If you exchange my deposit for approximately 2.5BTC, then you have earned my trust as a customer and future business. Thank you.

PSA - Dwolla worse than Paypal for accepting payments

I just want to share my experience this morning with Dwolla's curt, unhelpful customer service.
I have ocassionally been selling Bitcoins to people for Dwolla via LocalBitcoins. While I know that Dwolla transactions are reversible, it seems like they are harder to reverse, and Dwolla says they "work hard to protect you from unwarranted chargebacks." Dwolla also has a dispute resolution mediation system. I have had zero issues with chargebacks, so I've been pretty comfortable with it as a form of payment.
Today I woke up and my account had been closed.
Immediately I suspected someone I'd sold Bitcoins to had done a chargeback. So I called Dwolla customer support.
"Your account has been suspended because you are selling Bitcoins. That violates our terms of service."
What? I hurredly pull up the Dwolla ToS.
I search for the word "bitcoin" but find nothing. Then I see the've recently added a bit about the recent FINCEN guideline concerning virtual currencies, and a section that says you cannot sell virtual currencies for Dwolla.
Damn. Okay, I guess that's that then. I complain that I had no idea they had added this rule. I say that closing my account seems pretty harsh. Couldn't they have just given me a warning? And what happens to my Dwolla balance?
"That's actually not why we're closing your account."
What? But I thought you said it was...
It turns out someone sent me some money from a hacked/stolen account. Further, I was informed that Dwolla's security department had been able to recover the funds and return the money to the rightful owner (Yay! Good going Dwolla, I thought). So my next question was, how can I restore my account to good standing and working order?
"There is no way to continue." the service rep says.
What?
Turns out I am banned from using Dwolla for life. The Dwolla account the fraudulent money was sent from is also blacklisted forever. No appeal. In other words, the accounts of the victims of fraud on Dwolla's system have been blacklisted. Further, I learned that, without contacting me, the Dwolla security team had gone around reversing a bunch of my previous Dwolla payments, including a deposit to CampBX. And now my account with CampBX has been suspended. My Dwolla account balance is forfeit.
Pretty drastic. The reasoning the representative gave me for this was: "We don't know whether you were also committing fraud."
So I am assumed guilty and they don't care whether I'm innocent. Dwolla also purposely got me in trouble with a bunch of vendors, including my favorite Bitcoin exchange, CampBX. There was no reason to do this. They could have contacted me, and I would have been willing to restore any lost funds to vendors. My bank account is linked to my Dwolla account and I even had incoming deposits from my bank to Dwolla through ACH.
I think this is an incredibly shitty way to treat customers, especially considering I went through their Know-Your-Customer process, uploading my ID and utility bills and all that. And I have had an account for over a year and have made many transactions, for which they have collected fees. I wasn't aware of their anti-Bitcoin policy. I have not committed any fraud, and I am the one who has been most victimized. I'm out money and my accounts are ruined all over the Internet.
Considering 20% of all Dwolla transactions involve Bitcoin in one way or another, I think this is a crap way to treat the Bitcoin community in general. They should be a bit more reasonable, considering how much money they make from Bitcoin. I say that Dwolla is even worse than Paypal, becuase at least Paypal gives you some recourse and tries to figure out who is at fault when there's a problem.

Dwolla froze my account because I "engaged in peer to peer virtual currency exchange"

http://i.imgur.com/tT1xHTJ.jpg
I just got this email today after I initiated a bank transfer to fund my Dwolla account. I had previously used dwolla to buy bitcoins on localbitcoins, and had also transferred $1 to camp bx in order to "age" my account, and was planning on trying that out. Is this a common occurrence?

So far I have had horrible experience with Bitcoin

2 years ago I have opened an account with Camp BX and deposited some starter money via a money order. Shortly after that Bitcoin took a dive, so I just let it sit in there. Today I wanted to use some of my Bitcoin from Camp BX but my bitcoin transfers are locked. After reading some horrible reviews and posts about Camp BX I have a little hope that I will get my money back.
So I decided to give it a try some other way. I downloaded a wallet application to my phone in hopes of getting it funded somehow. Tough luck. Every avenue I take requires more information from me that I am willing to share with a private company (specifically my SSN). I don't know how secure these companies are, I have no idea what regulations they need to follow. I just need $100 worth of bitcoin and they want to know the size of my underwear.
The barrier to entry is horrendous.
So far I have tried:
This is fucking ridiculous. Not even talking about the fact that to get into bitcoin, you have to supply all this private information to some overseas company that can then trace your spending habits without your consent.
TLDR: bitcoin has horrendous barrier to entry, is nowhere close to anonymous as everybody pretends it to be and so far is nothing but loss for me.
Edit: I found an ATM that did not require any personal information. However out of sheer excitement I did not realize I was paying 20% premium until it was all set and done. That one is totally on me. The transaction was painless and besides the fee, my best bitcoin experience thus far.

Plea to all new exchanges: Launch with an API! MtGox and BTC-e are the only exchanges with "real" APIs (and BTC-e's is limited).

Some other exchanges/services offer an "API", but most are lame and some even are just children of MtGox's API, making calls on their behalf.
IMHO: MtGox is still the leader because of this - lots of bitcoin dependant services/apps need it's full-featured API!
Edit: Looks like CampBx is on point with MtGox, thanks - who else?

CampBX Stole My Bitcoins

I've been trading BTC off and on for the past two years. I used CampBX because I saw someone recommend it back in the day and being based in the US somehow made it feel less shady to me than the foreign alternatives. I've had a relatively good experience trading there but last month I decided to move my trading to an exchange with better volume. So I log in (with 2FA) and click the “Move Bitcoins” link and I'm greeted with the following text:
This account is under review and your outbound Bitcoin transfers have been temporarily disabled. Bitcoins Locked.
I submit a help desk ticket and get the following response:
Dear not_happy_camper, Your CampBX account is under review by our Compliance and Security department as we were unable to see any activity in your CampBX >account from past several months. We will work with the concerned department to complete this review ASAP. One of our team will get back to you shortly with an update.
Thank you, CampBX Support
I reply asking them to please explain the situation and remedy this ASAP. But they only respond with the same canned message again and again. I decided to give them one month to “unlock” my bitcoins before going public. They have not. I logged in today and noticed they have deleted all of my transaction history. Anyone have any ideas on a course of action I can take? I get the feeling I'm SOL.
tl;dr: CampBX won't let me move my Bitcoins out of their exchange and deleted my transaction history.

American Bitcoiners, Our Options are CBX and CoinBase, that's It?!?!

Hello, Bitcoin Community, since Dwolla's severing ties with Mt.Gox, and then its eventual demise, US based Bitcoin traders are stuck with Camp BX and CoinBase. Are there any other options I am missing out? CBX turnaround time is scarily slow whereas CoinBase rapes you with a fixed hefty 1% fee for every BTC<->USD trade. Thank you so very much.
As with LOCALBITCOINS, aren't they too risky, just as risky as Mt.Gox? Is your money protected in LocalBitcoins in case of fraud?
