I have Bitcoin held in Strongcoin's service, and want to transfer it out. The Strongcoin FAQ (last updated 2011) says the transfer fee is 1% (which I'm prepared to put up with) with a minimum fee of 0.004BTC (which I am not). I've verified that it does intend to charge 0.004 BTC for the transfer.
My impression is that this minimum was set a long time ago when it was a small amount of money and never updated.
I think it's not a fair transfer fee and want to avoid paying it if at all possible. Is there any way around it? I'd be happy to pay a reasonable amount closer to 0.0005 BTC.
I know the owner of Strongcoin uses this site (or at least has in the past) and I hope he can chip in here.
