Yesterday Mt. Gox announced that withdrawals of cash and bitcoins are temporarily disabled, blaming the bitcoin protocol. (While actually it’s only their fault: they assumed that the transaction id is unique and not editable, allowing scammers to duplicate their withdrawals…)
Obviously such a news made the bitcoin value tank. Watching on fiatleak.com, you can see that Chinese people gladly bought the “discounted” bitcoins, buying them in mass (600 bitcoins in 10 minutes!!!)
Recently Metaquotes is rolling out the update 600 of their MetaTrader 4.
They were crazy enough to:
- Make the update automatic and mandatory for everyone
- Don’t warn anyone
- Change the directory structure (that was unchanged from the past NINE years), just to mess with EA and indicators that supposed that the files position will never change
- Change how some MQL functions are working, in this way many EA or indicators will stop working correctly
I’m really speechless, how it’s possible that they release a such destructive update, without warning and automatic for everyone???
