Why not limit short new bitUSD amount?
« on: April 10, 2015, 02:48:05 AM »

Why not limit short new bitUSD amount? Assuming that short increment within 24 h shall not exceed 10% of the total

todays there are two hundred thousand bitUSD due to cover , greatly increasing the risk of a system.

about 260k bitUSD should be covered at the same time
total volume of bitUSD just around  400k
very  dangerous

The danger is that if the price is falling quickly (in terms of USD/BTS) and a large volume of margin calls can't be covered quickly enough we could end up with a black swan.
