Updated the poll, added bounties list (still needs to be worked on but whatever), and the best sites to bet bitcoin and some altcoins.

Bitfinex is taking 36% of everyone's accounts including all currencies (not just btc).

If I want to buy a crypto with my credit card, but I don't want to give the conversion company my info (e.g. SSN, passport photo, etc), what service should I use?

High volume with a price that is low compared to the price history or a price that has very little variation is a sign of accumulation, right? And accumulation is an indication that a pump is on the horizon?

If that is correct, that would you guys agree that Lisk, LBC, and XRP may be good picks right now or in the near future?

Poker_Star
Poker_Star

@Crazy_Nice

Yeah. That's pretty much it.

LISK is going lower for sure.

XRP is going lower for sure.

LBC has support around 540 wait until it breaks resistance at around 570. But it probably will pump a lot when the platform is released for windows and iOS. I'd buy in in a few hours to see where the price goes because it has tried to break resistance 3 times in the past 15 minutes so it's probably going to drop passed support.

which is fucking psychotic, by the way. and people are lining up on reddit to say "tough but fair i'd rather lose a third of my assets than have a company that doesn't give a shit about me go bankrupt". never mind the whole scheme is illegal as all hell and doomed to fail when (IF, BIIIIG IF) everyone pulls out at the earliest possibility. stockholm syndrome much?

"tough but fair i'd rather lose a third of my assets than have a company that doesn't give a shit about me go bankrupt"

Remember Gox? The exchange with BTC only, no (pretend) segregated wallets, no margin trading, in a clearly identifiable jurisdiction? A clear cut case, frankly.
~3 years, 7 creditors' meetings, who knows how many lawsuits and 50 mill USD worth of lawyer fees later they are yet to see a penny.

Nobody in their right minds would like to see this happen with Bitfinex and their money on it. If they push them into bankruptcy and receivership all the assets would be pooled together and liquidated at whatever price the market would pay on auction days for BTC and the shitcoins. Then they would pay fees, taxes, salaries, the creditors of the company, etc and customers would be last in line for whatever that's left, which would be way below that. Never mind factors such as time value on the money, which is on every traders mind anyway.

This is why the 36% haircut and the bail-in for the rest is highly preferable.

@WebTool

Sure, fuck them. I have a ton of money (USD, BTC, LTC and ETC) on Finex as well, but rationally speaking there is no way a better result can be reached. I think this is why they are offering this pseud-liquidation as well. Remember, all classes are treated equal and your USD balance is just a part of their liabilities until you have it in your account. (At which point it becomes the bank's liability.)

And the next guess whats going to happen when people cash out the remainder of their funds. They are still going to sue them and the stockholm syndrome idiots that continue to use them are getting fucked.

So the alternative is what? Company goes into receivership and if you are lucky 4-5 years from now you might get those funds. Better?

They are still going to sue them and the stockholm syndrome idiots that continue to use them are getting fucked.
That's a distinct possibility, yes.

Lololololoooool

So.... bifinex gets "hacked" (i.e. steals their account holders money like every other exchange before them), and their solution is to take 36% of the remaining account holders holdings to cover the "loss"? Roflmaooooo

This is some cuckery of the highest levels. It is so fucking amazing that I think I need to start a bitcoin exchange. Holy shit you guys take abuse well.

B-but at least we dont have to use banks, right go... guys?

yeah I remember Magic: The Gathering Online Exchange. they had the smarts to give up and close shop early on, avoiding personal liability and jail time. I think even Mark Karpeles got out clean, despite Japanese authorities holding him for like 2 months

this lemon socialism scheme of bitfinex's simply isn't going to work. talking about moving unaffected customers' balances around to cover losses elsewhere is going to get all sorts of authorities involved very quickly. if they somehow get away with it and open up their system again, there's going to be a huge run to get crypto and Actual Grownup Money out as fast as possible. offering "BFX tokens" won't convince enough people to stay on their demonstratively failed platform

trading is very likely not going to resume, by the way, and real-ass withdrawal of funds even less so. it's done. no one's getting anything out. statements from bitfinex are just stalling tactics meant to appeal to the denial/bargaining stages of the kubler ross model

From what I've gathered (npi) they were covering up the fact that they lost BTC to hacks for months or perhaps years. They were forced to shut down because there was a run on BTC withdrawals, since USD withdrawals didn't even work the last couple of months, and they wouldn't have been able honor pending withdrawals.

I think even Mark Karpeles got out clean
Again, i'm not following the case closely but afaik he is still charged with embezzling a couple of mill worth of coins, he is only out on bail. This is beyond whatever legal liabilities he might have over the coverup.

Yes it's not unlikely that (whatever) authorities are going to get involved and sooner or later this all goes the way of Gox. Until then this is an issue between private parties who may or may not come to an agreement.
The "may not" is strong in this one because all we need is a single entity to flip the table and start filing injunctions and lawsuits for this to come crashing down. That is probably in spite of their own personal interest, in my opinion, but whatever.
