Hello! Now I'm working on a private exchange. I have very big plans, but there is still a lot of work. It will be a real market where people can buy and sell bitcoins. I'm trying to create a platform where Bitcoin will be treated as a commodity. People will be able to exchange bitcoins for dollars and to speculate on the cost. Theoretically, these allow you to set the exchange rate and so we will be able to understand how much a Bitcoin is worth in dollar terms.

This morning I see on bitcoinmarket.com price 23.99 USD! I usually count myself among those who buys and holds a long time, but now this rise in the price scares me! I only have 75 BTC, but I feel like a rich man!

However, at the time days Bitcoinmarket.com were numbered. New crypto currency exchange was preparing to open its doors to crowds of crazed bitcontrol, many of whom just recently found out about open in February of the same year, the darknet market . Successor Bitcoinmarket.com launched in July 2011, and by 2014, the new exchange has already dragged on 70 percent of all bitcoin transactions worldwide. Of course, it was an exchange .
