Bitcoin Trader Shuts Down: Owner Blames Hacker, Clients Cry Scam
“[John Carley] said in the statement that the Bitcoin Trader wallet was hacked and emptied during a process that was needed to proof its solvency, stating that declaring bankruptcy is the last measure to take…
This decision appeared to have been conceived after attempts to negotiate with the hacker failed, when the latter declined Carley’s offer of a 25% ransom. Clients, however, have reservations about this story, resulting in a clamor for truth: was Bitcoin Trader really hacked or this was all part of a scam schemed by Carley himself?”

Buying in New Bitcoin Exchange Easier, Cheaper in the Land Down Under
Australia welcomes another Bitcoin exchange, where trading the digital currency is void of high risks and the goods-and-services tax (GST).

CoinVegas Eyes New Gambling Flavor through Regional Games
Bitcoin gambling site CoinVegas intends to feature regional games as addition to the current Bitcoin casino game hosted on its platform.
“Our team is little, but efficient and at the moment we are working to make the site more mobile-ish. We’re adding new games too. But not the usual games like blackjack, poker or dice. Instead we are planning to add typical regional games like Sette e Mezzo for the Italians, Schnauz for the Germans, etc.”
What Can Be Sweeter than Free Bitcoins?
New Bitcoin gambling brands tend to feature Bitcoin faucets that provide players with free bitcoins. How does this help the casinos?
“Giving away bitcoins free of charge is, after all, an enticing deal for anyone who wishes to experience the games offered by a Bitcoin casino or a gambling site. Most notable are bettors who prefer to rather keep their earned or paid bitcoins to themselves and still be able to play Bitcoin dice, slots, and other Bitcoin casino games.”
