On Sunday evening our 1000th trader joined us. We want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your trust and feedback. Although this number might appears low, it means a huge responsibility for a start-up like us. (see statistics below) We think that, slow and organic growth is the key to a successful Bitcoin related business. It allows to continuously improve personal and technical security systems and collect experience about cryptocurrencies in general. Since 2009 there were more than 1.000.000 Bitcoins (currently worth 350.000.000$) stolen from countless platforms due to hacks, thefts and frauds. The majority of the hacks resulted from amateurish written software code, not tested enough for production environments. Instead of improving or rewriting code, fast growing businesses are buried with performance issues and customer support. From the beginning our highest priority was to avoid this fate and we strongly advise anyone who intends to start a Bitcoin related business to grow slowly. It really matters!
