Other Australian Bitcoin Exchanges

Exchange Is business currently operating? (+ info)
Bit2Bit
Bit2Bit.co
- Founder/owner not listed on website.
Yes.
- Has an ABN.
- ATMs in Canberra and South Brisbane (< this machine has been seized by police?).
- Website has bugs from August to October (map tile errors?) in some browsers (Firefox, Tor, etc.).
- Twitter updated in October.
- Quick links: BT, Red, T, T2, Duck, FB.
BitRocket (ATM company)
BitRocket.co
- Founder/owner not listed on website.
Probably yes.
- 5 or so ATMs in Sydney and Melbourne? More rolling out but are "on ice" as of 18-09-2014.
- No ABN but is registered in England and Wales. Website says: "Each ATM machine is operated by the local host, whose ABN is available on location and on the host's site."
- I need verification that the local host is a business in Australia to be listed on this website (I am hoping their website will be updated).
- A report has come in (17th Sept) from a redditor that the ATM price is $36/BTC more than the price on their website. Update: Turns out they were testing GST on the ATM (hence the difference in price).
- ATM's locations on website may not be up to date (Wynyard Station ATM was removed in September but website still says it is there?).
- Twitter updated in October.
- Quick links: BT, Red, T, T2, Duck, FB.
Go Get Coins
GoGetCoins.com
- Founder/owner not listed on website.
New exchange advertised on BitcoinTalk.org on 03-08-2014.

- Warning: This is the only Australian exchange not using a https (SSL) connection.
- Website regularly says on the 'buy bitcoin' page: "Buy limit for today is between $0-$1" near the end of August to October. Are they in business?
CoinJelly
CoinJelly.com
- Founder/CEO is Ashley K.
Yes? Mainly an online wallet provider.
- Has an ABN.
- I think you can buy bitcoin but I can't find a buy/ask price. They list on their website from July to October that they have a 1% fee but I think that is more for holding bitcoin in their wallet rather than buying bitcoin?
- Is CoinJelly misleading its users? Coin Fire says "Zurich Australian Insurance Limited (ABN 13 000 296 640) has not issued any policy of insurance to CoinJelly." yet CoinJelly says: "CoinJelly, through Zurich Financial Services Pty Ltd (Australia), guarantees user deposits up to 20 BTC" (comment removed from website in July 2014).

- Founder/owner not listed on website.

- Home page from May to October also says: "We're the best in delivering the service fast and low cost, as often customers point us.".

Exchange is no longer operating in late September. Update October: The website is back online... I suspect so they can sell it (see post on bitcointalk.org)?

- In part of June 2014 the website was offline.

- No contacts (other than support form), no social profiles, no business name/ABN or names on website.
Bitcoin4 Australia

- Has an ABN but doesn't mention trading name.
- 90+% of testimonials on the website feedback page look fake (page removed in Mar 2014).
- Last on Facebook in Feb 2014 but appears (to me) that they may have bought "likes"?
