Happy first birthday MPEx

Monday, 18 March, Year 5 d.Tr. | Author: Mircea Popescu

With all the commotion about Bitcoin these past weeks, the fact that MPEx' public key actually switched over a week ago passed almost without notice.

The original key had been created with a one year expiry date, and so its expiration stands as proof that MPEx has been talking to the public for one year now. It's one year old on March 10th.i

Here's a nice little metric to mark the occasion :


That's just the public deposit address, of course, but still a nice round number to show off.

Other not quite as round numbers to show off : 958`508.64650896 BTC total trade during the interval, about 18`820 BTC paid out in dividends and a further 14`180 paid out as interest for the MPOE bonds. And the total humiliation of Romania's other exchange, the BVB. You know, the real one, as opposed to the virtual, play-pretend, game stuff.

PS. The first million happened in 2012. We're at about 1¼ currently. Go Bitcoin!

  1. MPOE is older than that, having taken its first order in August 2011. Late February 2012 the idea to incorporate it as a BTC company and sell shares came about, and MPEx was born shortly afterwards, after reviewing the available venues (GLBSE, basically) and coming to the conclusion they suck.

    Admittedly it has a little bit of bone.

    Mar 18 01:50:42 {mircea_popescu} salmon.
    Mar 18 01:51:50 {Bugpowder} Blue and Black buttons are terrible.
    Mar 18 01:52:01 {Bugpowder} Main logo looks pixelated
    Mar 18 01:52:39 {Bugpowder} whereas the current "Welcome to MPEx" looks clean
    Mar 18 01:52:43 {Anduck} sorry but it looks like it's from the 90s
    Mar 18 01:53:54 {mircea_popescu} Bugpowder you apparently also missed the memo on the gift horse mouthlooking.
    Mar 18 01:53:58 {mircea_popescu} must read moar btctalk.
    Mar 18 01:54:18 {Bugpowder} I don't need to read moar btctalk, must read less
    Mar 18 01:54:21 {Bugpowder} much less
    Mar 18 01:54:52 {mircea_popescu} much much less.
    Mar 18 01:54:59 {Bugpowder} Anyway, besides those two issues with the coffee formatting, it looks good

    Anyway, MPEx isn't really looking for design work, but thanks for the interest.
