Hackers Have Stolen Millions Of Dollars In Bitcoin

Jered Kenna: Tradehill founder partnering with Broker Dealer and launching new platform on TradeZero

My name is Jered Kenna, in 2011 I founded Tradehill; the first US based Bitcoin exchange.
After Tradehill closed it's doors I designed a platform to facilitate off market trades. As a trader and exchange operator the Bitcoin side has never been a problem. The difficulties in the digital currency world have always involved the banks.
With the goal of bringing more speed and liquidity to Bitcoin I've partnered with TradeZero; a licensed broker dealer. US Dollars and other national currencies are held in a reputable international bank. The Bitcoin is secured with Bitgo at no additional cost to our users.
There are currently three ways to trade with us.
Transfer: If you simply want to send currency to someone else on the platform type in their email address or account number. The transaction is instant and non reversible. 0.2% flat fee for the sender.
Direct Trade: Essentially a two way transfer. Use this if you have a preexisting relationship with someone whom you would like to trade. Enter their email or account number followed by the trade details you would like to propose. For example “700 USD for 1XBT(BTC)”. The other party will then be asked to either accept or reject the trade. Upon acceptance the trade will instantly close and be settled. Either party can cancel the trade until that point. Trades are final and there is a 0.2% fee for the initiator.
Dark Pool: Much like a common floating exchange with a few key differences. There is an order book with bids and asks but it is not visible. There is only one order type. Bids and asks are filled at the price requested. The biggest advantage is the ability to move large trades without disturbing the market. If you're looking to make a large buy or sell you can do so without tipping your hand. On a typical exchange a large sell would drive the price down resulting in a worse price for the seller. Conversely a large buy order would raise the price. This is known as slippage. There is no fee on the dark pool. Currently there is a .2% minimum spread for orders to close.
Launch and perspective clients. Our original launch announcement was in August. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-bitcoin-trading-darkpool-idUSKCN10M1ZA . Unfortunately around the launch date details were becoming available on the Bitfenix hack. Bitgo began to make changes and we decided to take advantage of the fact that we were just getting started. We halted our launch and began to modify the platform to be more secure and improve the user interface. All of the modifications are complete and have been thoroughly tested.
TradeZero is open to everyone that is interested in opening an account with $10,000 or more in USD or Bitcoin. TradeZero accepts high net worth individuals, businesses and institutions. Please note that the stock trading portion of TradeZero is not open to US citizens. The digital currency side is.
Go to tradezero.co to begin the on-boarding process or speak to a real person if you have any questions.

Kenna was so early in bitcoin that he remembers when he would plug his computer into the network and see only four other computers running it. Now, there are more than 5,000. Its young CEO, Jered Kenna, accidentally deleted 800 Bitcoins when he wiped his computer clean in 2010, losing a commodity that today would be worth tens of thousands of dollars. Jered Kenna — $30 Million “If we remember, 15 years ago if you were doing anything on the Internet you were going to make millions. I think it could be the same with bitcoin.” Jered Kenna Jared Kenna, the young millionaire, started his bitcoin investments by buying the coins for as low as $0.20 each. When a few years later the worth of each bitcoin became $258, he sold Jered Kenna: Like most crypto-millionaires Jered Kenna saw the potential of cryptocurrencies early on. The former marine turned successful entrepreneur bought his first batch of Bitcoins at just $0.2 per coin.
