By far, the largest Bitcoin exchange where you can convert your currency into Bitcoin and back again is the one operated at mtgox.com. In a very distant second place is the Bitcoin exchange provided at BTC-e.com. Neither of those are based in the United States. The largest U.S. exchange is Coinbase.com.

The Bitcoin market is a very young ecosystem – barely 4 years old – that has yet to develop a mature, diversified infrastructure to support it. Mtgox.com used to be the only game in town when it comes to using a Bitcoin exchange, but now there are more than 70 Bitcoin exchanges around the world.

There are certain requirements that you must meet in order to trade on mtgox.com. The terms of use at mtgox start by declaring, “The Platform, managed by Mt. Gox, allows buyers (“Buyers”) and sellers (“Sellers”), to buy and sell the internet commodity known as “Bitcoin(s)”. It also allows all registered users of the Platform (“Members”) to transfer funds and Bitcoins to other Members and to use Bitcoins for purchasing specific items.

Depending on their country of residence, Members may not access all the functions of the Site.”
