This could also be applied to any other part of trading goods rather then just gold. I think it's a missed opportunity and a step back from the original game. In GW1 you had the Trading system rather then Auction system, but you had guru's Auction house where you could place your items and people could've actually asked if maybe you wanted another item in return, or pay in ectos rather then cash only.
This is what's missing in GW2, a true Trading system, and at this point it's still uncertain if they offer support for items lost in scams (You send first and you get none back).
If anything they really should work more on the Trading Post to become tradeable and not just put up for Auction.
As a GW1 Veteran I can say that in my history I have traded and accepted more offers in goods then pure cash and still made the best of it.
What do you guys think?
