VirtEx - Canadian Virtual Exchange      

Read / Write a review

Currency exchanges / Fixed rate
We were the first Bitcoin exchange in Canada starting with our beta on June 8th, 2011. VirtEx is run by a registered Alberta Corporation operating in Alberta, Canada. Customer funds are held with Canadian banks in trust accounts. Operating a Bitcoin exchange in Canada is a ground breaking endeavor where legal research and advice is required. We have every intention of complying with any applicable Canadian law and taxation. When choosing us to trade, you can be confident that you are dealing with a company that is performing due diligence for operating in Canada. We are highly rated on the web of trust
-SSL Encrpytion: You may have noticed a picture of a key on your browser or the HTTPS in front of our address. This indicates that all communication between you and our website is encrypted and protected in the same way as your online banking activities. This type of encryption is the world wide trusted standard for secure transmission of information. Please refer to the HTTPS article on Wikipedia for more information.
-Browser identification: An identification token from your browser is registered with VirtEx to prevent unauthorized browsers from using your account. This method is used by some banks to help secure your account.
-No MD5s here: The MD5 hashing algorithm is known to be weak for storing password hashes. We do not use MD5 to hash your password. Nor will we be using something equivalently insecure.
-Server backups: If needed, we can rollback our database, this allows us to cancel suspicious trading activity and do our best to restore accounts and fund balances to the values prior to any malicious attacks and resume operations with minimal downtime.
-Other efforts: Our systems are physically secured in locations that we control.
-SQL injection: Our systems have been programmed to prevent SQL injections.
-Outage action plan: In the unlikely event of any outage or attack, we will remain in contact with you via your registered e-mail address on your VirtEx account and provide a new web address for continued operations if required.
-Trusted people: Presently, our plan is to keep a very small group of trusted employees. As we expand, we will follow stringent policies when hiring new employees.

      The guys who posted good comments about VirtEx work for VirtEx. VirtEx is a scam. Their address does not even appear anywhere on their site nor anywhere on the web. No one knows who they are, where they are, or who their registered owners are. Only my first deposit was accepted. My second deposit has gone "missing". Don't trust these guys. No physical address in Canada. They might be in Costa Rica for all we know.

      Numerous people in the past few days have made cash transfers into this company which have NOT been documented into their individual accounts. Advise you stay away from Virtex until they can prove that they are actually responding to phone calls and emails from their existing customers. THEIR EXCUSE THAT THEY ARE BUSY VERIFYING ACCOUNTS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ACKNOWLEDGING CASH PAYMENTS MADE BY CUSTOMERS. DO NOT SEND THESE PEOPLE ANY MONEY WHATSOEVER AT THIS TIME.!!!!!!

      They were very good in the past but something is not right since about 10 days... Several cash transfers I made to them have not shown up and they are not responding to calls or email!

      I have waited 10 days now to get 'phone verified' by Virtex and cannot buy BTC until I do. They have not replied to emails or phone calls for more than a week(you can never get through and calls are not returned). So if you need to get signed up to buy BTC you will need to use Mt Gox or some other exchange. Virtex has been a complete excercise in frustration.

      I recently withdrew a relatively large amount of money to my bank account from VirtEx

It went through very fast! I sent my withdraw request Sunday and it was in my bank account Monday!

Thanks again VirtEx!
