We all need to remove every single BTS we own from all exchanges.
When we want to buy BTS, we deposit money on the exchange, buy BTS, and immediately remove it. Always. Immediately.
When we want to trade we use the Bitshares Decentralized exchange exclusively. Only ever send BTS back to exchanges for permanent cashing out.
Please give me a time machine so I can go back and do this with bter. I will only ever use the decentralized exchange ever again. Hopefully many of us will learn this lesson from the bter hack in a way that doesnt cost us much except for pain, or a little BTC. I don't ever plan to have much BTS on an exchange for more than like an hour or so, ever again.
