There've been some questions here about MtGox getting dollars through Dwolla, but what about other channels besides Dwolla? Are dollars still reaching MtGox somehow? The price of BTC on MtGox a few minutes ago was over $131, up a bit from a few days ago. There must be dollars there for people to bid with, and buy bitcoins with; otherwise this couldn't happen.

Another thing I've wondered about is transferring dollars straight to a bank account in the USA. International bank account numbers are not used in the United States. Is there a way to do it without one of those?

    Mtgox is in Japan, and they accept wire transfers and other methods. I think Dwolla was being used to reduce the fees, but it was a US-only thing. Commented May 28, 2013 at 1:55
