Trading has been permanently frozen for the site wind down.

Welcome to, the BTC Virtual Stock Exchange*
  from BTC Trading Corp.

Website Update - New Account Service Fees


Efforts have been ongoing to process all final site withdrawals. Emails have been sent approximately every two weeks to any account holders with deposits still on the site. If you believe you have a deposit on the site and have not heard from us, please check your spam folder first, then email for final withdrawal processing.

The Terms of Service has been updated to reflect a new monthly account service fee. If you are still holding a balance on the website please email with your account login and your withdrawal address ASAP to avoid any monthly service charges.

Website Shutdown Update - Site Logins Disabled


Logins have been been disabled according to the winding down plan. Our next step is to process final withdrawals for everyone. We hope to have that completed before Nov 8.

Website Shutdown Update - Trading Halted


Trading has been halted according to the winding down plan. We will update the site code shortly to allow transfers to and from asset issuers on a per-issue basis where necessary.

Website Shutdown Announcement


As a result of recent changes in the virtual currency regulatory environment, the and virtual stock market websites will be closing down.  The following is our current schedule:

  1. Approximately a week ago, both sites were closed to any new users and new asset creation was disabled.
  2. Effective immediately, in conjunction with this release, trading will be halted, all order books cleared, and trading re-enabled.
  3. October 7, 2013, all forms of secondary market trading will be halted on both sites.
  4. Approximately October 31, 2013, both sites will be taken offline.  It is strongly suggested that participants take the following steps to protect all of their virtual assets:
    1. All participants should take steps to transfer all of your BTC and LTC (and any other data you wish to keep, such as CSV trade histories) held on the sites to your personal computer or another trusted site.
    2. All participants should make sure that their public BTC or LTC address is properly set in the Account page on the Settings tab whereby it can be shared with all issuers.
    3. All “issuers” should have the contact information concerning their “investors”, and we ask that all “issuers” communicate with their “investors” as soon as possible as to how they will ensure that all are treated appropriately.

We regret this development. However, we want to do everything we can to minimize problems arising from this transition.  It is our goal to keep this shutdown orderly and calm.

Thank you for your participation, creativity, loyalty and sense of community over the past year.  Additional communications will follow as we work out the details.
