1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / Poloniex Concern - Whale Volume Drops After Sept Withdrawal Delays. on: October 18, 2016, 04:31:42 PM
I've been having a general feeling of unease about Poloniex. It started in September after reading Davinci's post here:

(The August outage was blamed it on data center problems, and Davinci's legitimate concerns in his thread never received attention from Poloniex.)

I didn't think much of it, but then in Sept they had withdrawal delays and tweeted this:

Late August/early Sept had seen some of the largest volume days I can remember on Poloniex for 2016. Monero trading saw a huge amount of volume. Ever since that series of withdrawal delays, I've notice a significant drop in daily trading volume.

IE, last weekend POTCOIN was the number 1 volume coin on Poloniex. Higher trading volume than ETH, XMR, ETC.

My question is to the ETH/XMR whales. Where did you go, and why did you go?

I've since reduced my exposure to Poloniex, and as much as I hate their interface and lack of volume, I'm trading more on Bittrex.

Look, we've been here before with MtGox & Cryptsy. Withdrawal delays and service outages are serious concerns in a cryptocurrency space where we've seen hundreds of millions of dollars in hacks, and countless insolvencies.

Poloniex seems to be showing signs of not being able to run a professional business. I have some prominent friends who are taking weeks to get verified, without responding to email inquiries.

Because we've all been burned before, most of us don't trust exchanges. Poloniex needs to address these issues faster and with more clarity.

Iím still trading there because its one of the only good options for liquidity in altcoin trading...but I would like to hear from the whales. What do you know that we don't? The biggest concern is the noticeable reduction in trade volume since they posted the delayed withdrawals message on Sept 17.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Operation MadMax = over 150 BTC in 24 hours. Next stop, DUCK on: February 07, 2014, 10:49:44 PM
We took a big risk on MaxCoin, but it's paid off. We scaled up a massive mining operation and went all in on MaxCoin.

I'm part of a private trading / investing group that has had some really significant returns over the last couple of months. Here's some of our HUGE wins since I got into this full time Nov 21 2013.

Nov: PeerCoin, Feathercoin, Namecoin, PrimeCoin & XRP.
Dec: Sexcoin, DOGE & Quark, GalaxyCoin, Noirbits, ProtoShares, WorldCoin, AnonCoin, UNO, HoboNickels.
Jan: EarthCoin, NXT, TIPS, MOON, Ron Paul Coin, 42, CAT.
Feb: Counterparty, VERT, AstroCoin. We expect good returns this month on LEAF, MEOW, DUCK, CASH, and a few others that haven't yet done their 10X.

What's next for us?


Of course we are going to go into eMunie, Ethereum and Bitshares ... but thats March/April. Our group is expecting a 10X on DUCK in the next 2 weeks.

If anyone has been making amazing altcoin returns, please PM me with your trade suggestions, and if you want to join our mastermind group on skype - let me know, we are always looking to connect with full time altcoin day traders.
3  Bitcoin / Project Development / Altcoin Trading Tool To Show Portfolio Value on: December 27, 2013, 11:45:46 PM
I'm looking for an individual or team to join in a project to help us build some trading tools for altcoin day traders.

It's pretty difficult to manage a portfolio of altcoins, we want to create a "google finance" style web app where you can manually enter your altcoin holdings (and the rate you bought them at) to see your current holdings with each coin's respective GAINS or LOSSES.

Is anyone working on something like this?

We have a proper budget, we can pay in bitcoins, USD or a combination of either plus equity if someone wants to partner on this.

4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Help! Bitcoin Client Out Of Sync by 35000 blocks. on: October 30, 2013, 04:07:59 AM
I'm using QT Client, client name Satoshi, client version v0.7.0-beta

I'm 35245 blocks behind. I haven't had this computer turned on for 6 months because it's broken and I bought a new one. It has a faulty hard drive, and the Dell tech is finally ready to swap out the drive, except I don't want to lose all my bitcoins.

Its trying to catch up but it's taking forever.

It's been running for 24 hours straight and it moved from 82% - 86%

Is there any way to get my bitcoins out without waiting for it to catch up? It's going to take a week or more at this rate.
5  Bitcoin / Project Development / needs a new coder captain! on: July 16, 2012, 07:15:00 PM
I started last year when I got bitten by the bitcoin bug. We did a lot of marketing and promotion on the site, had a couple of employees, and ended up getting about 10,000 users in the first month!

Then when mtgox got hacked, when ran away, and when the price of bitcoins crashed, we lost faith in bitcoin and were overwhelmed by the volatility and just put the site on the backburner and moved on with life.

Then in December we tried to restart the site with a contest to give away causacious coins ... and then our coder got hired by a big company and we were left floating alone in the ocean of forgotten bitcoin dreams again.

So now I see that bitcoin is coming back, Coinbase just got YCombinator funding, the price is back up to $7+ and people are still using even though we haven't really given it any love in almost a year. has 30,000 members now, and still gets about 10,000 visits a month! I was SHOCKED when I cracked open the google analytics account and saw that.

We have about 300 people requesting bitcoin payouts totalling about 50 bitcoins in total. I really want to restart the site, pay everyone out, and get a new captain who can steer the site in the right direction!

If anyone wants to be part of the re-launch of the site, please reply here ... we're hoping to find a bitcoin evangelist with coding skills who knows a bit about internet marketing and email marketing.

We are willing to give a % of the company away to the right person.

9  Economy / Marketplace / ForBitcoin For Auction - Bitcoin Business For Auction on Flippa on: October 05, 2011, 10:41:53 PM
Ever since Mt Gox went down, things got crazy, we weren't able to put resources towards the site. It's an awesome business and website, just needs a new payment processor (or if MtGox is fixed now, it just needs to be updated...)

I've been too busy with other things since July to even look at this site, and I'd love to hand it off to someone in the btc community who can nurture it.

15  Bitcoin / Project Development / BETA - Get Free Bitcoins, 20% Referral Bonus on: June 17, 2011, 10:52:45 AM

Join in the fun on facebook!

The people who brought you the Micro Job Marketplace are happy to announce the launch of Get Free Bitcoins, Refer Others and get a 20% Bonus on what they earn.

As the faucets have dried up and generosity has vaporized with the rise in value of bitcoin, there's few options for getting an easy bitcoin. aims to let new users and existing users earn bitcoins without spending any money. The service was started to break down the barriers for the average internet user of getting their first Bitcoin!

How does it work?
  • Register for the site and complete free advertisements & surveys.
  • Get paid in bitcoin when you complete the offer.
  • Tell others about, and earn for spreading the word.
  • Retire when bitcoins are worth $10,000 each =P

Click the banner below to start earning Free Bitcoins. Then spread the message of bitcoin to everyone you know by passing your referral link on. This is a great way to earn even more bitcoins. Stay tuned for the referral contest details!

If I'm not in the USA will this work for me?
Most of our offers are for USA residents right now, but we're adding offers for all countries, check back daily to see new offers! Half of the team is based in Canada, so don't worry, international users are a high priority for us!

"Free" Bitcoins? Yeah right, where's the catch?
Advertisers are willing to pay money for eyeballs. Most of them just want to send you an email or text message about their service. These offers are absolutely free, and you will never be charged a penny for them. In fact, most of our offers have absolutely no cost, but we do have some offers where you have to buy trial subscriptions to Columia House or Netflix. These are optional, you don't have to do the paid ones - but you should because you get paid more bitcoin.

How do I get paid?
There's no minimum withdrawal amount, and you get paid to a account or your bitcoin wallet.

How much do I earn for referring?
You get 20% of whatever your referral earn. For example, if you refer 5 people who earn 10 bitcoins, you are going to earn 10 free bitcoins for referring them! (5 people X 10 bitcoins X 20%)

Am I going to get a virus, or spammed?
We recommend signing up to with your primary email address, because we will never spam you. We hate spam just as much as you.  However, some of our users reported receiving a lot of email after signing up for certain offers. All of the offers are CAN-SPAM compliant, but it may be a smart idea to use a secondary email address when completing the offers.  

We only use advertising networks with high quality offers. There's a lot of scummy stuff on the internet, we are trying to avoid that junk. If you have a problem with any of the offers on the site, please email us at and tell us why you think we should remove an offer.

Who are you, why should I trust that you won't scam me?
We've been in this industry for a long time. We've given away about $50,000 worth of cash and prizes to our users, we've raised over $100,000 for Canadian charities, and we raised money for Ron Paul's presidential run in 2008. We also run, where you can earn bitcoins through micro jobs.

Is this a ponzi scam?

17  Bitcoin / Mining / Air Quality, Humidity, Heat - Should I Worry? on: June 10, 2011, 09:02:45 AM
I've got ~5Ghash going in my basement right now, and my inlaws are noticing scratchy throats, and light headed-ness.  When I'm in the laundry room for a few hours tinkering with the rigs, I feel a sore throat coming on.

What's going on!?

Can these mining rigs actually make us sick somehow?  I need some input from others doing 4-5 Ghash or more from their basements, can these affect air quality?

It seems it's pumping out lots of dry heat, which could be making the humidity levels low...any thoughts?

18  Economy / Marketplace / Sell Pizza, Acquire Bitcoin at on: June 10, 2011, 03:39:51 AM

Then go on the irc channel and pimp your gig to hungry developers, miners and traders.

disregard pizza, acquire bitcoins.

*by popular demand we mean 1 really hungry homeless guy.
19  Economy / Invites & Accounts / Bitcoin Market Invites on: June 08, 2011, 08:16:20 AM
I've seen people saying that they will sell bitcoin market invites - that might be a good gig to list at - I'm sure there are people who would buy that.

I don't know exactly what bitcoin market is, I've been too busy to check it out - so if the guys from bitcoin market could comment here and let us know if this is cool or not - that would be good.
