1  Economy / Service Discussion / WARNING: cryptsy unable to produce trade records on: April 18, 2015, 01:32:30 AM
In 2014 my company made over 400k trades at Cryptsy, for a trading volume of over 18000 BTC.

Due to limitations in the cryptsy API, we are unable to directly and accurately download all of our trade records.

Since late November, I've been pestering support to get a CSV download of our full trade history. Months went by, multiple tickets too, and they have been unable to deliver me this simple request. Every other exchange we've traded on has been able to deliver this to us. Even Ferdous over at Mintpal went out of his way to get us our 2014 records after the exchange had been shut down for many months!

We need this data for our business taxes.

I've tried support but at this point they just ignore me and close my ticket. I've tried their history reports CSV tool, it doesn't work (the requests are forever "not ready"). I've even emailed Bigvern directly (no response). You would think this company would want to support big traders like me, but apparently, they don't care or their level 2 support system is completely broken.

At this point I feel I've exhausted all options but publicly lambasting them.
2  Economy / Service Discussion / What's going on with cryptsy? on: December 18, 2014, 02:23:12 AM
The main cryptsy threads are locked, bitjohn's email address is bouncing, bigvern is not responding, and I have been waiting on cryptsy support to provide me with a CSV report of my trade history for about 3 weeks now.

Theories to what's going on?
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / WT borrow 10mil dogecoin for short sell on: December 19, 2013, 09:17:00 PM
I want to borrow up to 10 million doge for up to 60 days. I will pay 10% interest on your dogecoins, meaning you will get back N*1.1 doges within 60 days (that's actually more like 60% annualized). 10% is my bid, if you want a higher rate please post your offer.

Lest you think I am being a ponzi, I will be perfectly transparent about what I'm doing with the coins. I'm going to sell them on the open market in a bet that I'll be able to buy them back for less.

I will hold at least 15 BTC in a reserve address which I'll share with the lender so s/he knows I have enough coins to cover the position should doge continue to go up.

Interested lenders please post here.

What's with all those zeros? And if they are to be ignored, it's still a problem, because once I do that there are no buy orders left :/

edit: this is also happening with at least a handful of other pairs, such as anc/btc, zet/btc, qrk/btc..
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Litecoin Widget for android now supports over 50 altcoins on: December 04, 2013, 10:59:21 AM
In the most recent version of Litecoin Widget, just released tonight, I've added support for all the altcoins traded at cryptsy vs BTC.

That's over 50 coins, including most of the popular alts.

Hope y'all enjoy it.

Here's the original Litecoin Widget thread:

(tl;dr -- it's a popular free price widget for android for BTC and alt coins.)

6  Economy / Service Discussion / Btcchina API discussion on: November 09, 2013, 07:03:51 AM
Up until today, I had been using for the order book, but it stopped updating when things got busy. I discovered that the authenticated API has an order book method: "getMarketDepth" that is updating properly (though it sends a warning that the method is deprecated).

Now trade data is another story. Again, is not updating. Yet there must be a real time feed somewhere, as BitcoinWisdom is getting updates as I write this. Does anyone know how?

Please use this thread to collect other tips about the Btcchina API.

Also, a copy of the API documentation can be found here (the documentation wiki site is currently down):

8  Economy / Services / Earn 1BTC for 200 translations of bitstamp's website on: July 18, 2013, 10:13:04 PM
Bitstamp is offering a program for 0% commissions on fees:

I have a high volume account on their exchange, so I would benefit a lot from zero percent fees. In fact, it's worth enough to me that I'm willing to pay 1BTC for every 2 week's worth of 0% fees you can earn for me.

That equates to 200 translations, where each is a small phrase or single word, up to a few sentences.

I will send you 50% payment as soon as I verify that your translations are complete, and the other 50% as soon as Bitstamp credits the additional 0% fee week on our account (any delays on this are beyond my control).

If you're interested, PM me with your language(s) of expertise. Do not just start working on crowdin! I have to give you access to my crowdin account to do the work through in order for credit to go to the right place.

The list of languages in need of translation can be found here:


update: round 1 completed on Sunday July 21. You did about 2600 translations and we paid 26 BTC to 6 different translators. Woot! I am considering a second round, however we may only be able to pay half the previous rate, or 1 BTC for 200 translations.

All right folks, here we go with round 2!

Rate: 1 BTC per 200 "translations for export" as defined on the site. 50% payout when the work is done, 50% when Bitstamp verifies and accepts the translations.

How to get started: PM me to get credentials for my crowdin account. Include the language(s) you want to translate.

Quality matters. Please only translate languages for which you have expertise. If I or Bitstamp discover that you are using crappy machine translations, I will not pay you and do my best to publicly ostracize you as well Smiley.

Schedule: We will work until this Sunday, July 28th at midnight UTC.
9  Economy / Computer hardware / WTB GPU mining rig/farm $10k on: May 21, 2013, 07:07:48 AM
I'm looking to acquire a GPU mining rig or rigs, perhaps from somebody who is moving up to ASICs. I want it for scrypt/LTC mining and perhaps other alt chains. I would be curious what I can get for around $10k USD, possibly a little more. Strongly prefer a linux setup. Shipping to the US. Will require escrow if you want payment in BTC. Please PM me if you have an offer. Thanks.

12  Economy / Service Announcements / [ANNOUNCE] BitcoinAddresses android app on: April 02, 2013, 04:27:12 AM
It's called BitcoinAddresses, available from the app store.

It's a simple address book for bitcoin addresses. Also supports litecoin.

Scan bitcoin or litecoin addresses into your phone, to easily transfer them from one computer to another. Always have your addresses with you to receive payment wherever you go. (You can also save other people's addresses).

Note: this is NOT a wallet, it will not show your address balances or allow you to spend the coins.

This app operates completely offline.

13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [ANNOUNCE] Digital Currency Widget: bitcoin / altcoin price widget for android on: March 26, 2013, 03:39:57 AM
The most popular android alt price widget, Digital Currency Widget (previously Litecoin Widget) will show you prices for BTC and hundreds of alts on dozens of exchanges.


Tap once to update, twice to reconfigure.

Anytime a price was estimated, it is marked with an asterisk. Please be aware, these numbers could be based on cached information even if you refresh. The time the data was pulled from the exchange is displayed. If the exchange is stale in updating it's data, your view will also be stale.

Currency exchange rates may be cached for up to 1 hour.

14  Economy / Service Announcements / -- new Android widget on: March 25, 2013, 10:11:11 PM
Background: is a sort of bitcoin address "shortener" except the key is your email address(es).

There is now an Android widget that helps you keep tabs on your addresses. Basically, it just sits there looking green unless it detects that your address has changed. The development was spurred by a discussion here on the forums about the security of bitcoin address shorteners, and how they are susceptible to man-in-the-middle attacks and such.

The widget doesn't "solve" MITM attacks per-se, but it does at least give you a simple way to monitor the status of your own addresses. With the widget, you can e.g. easily verify that your address is still correct just before telling someone to refer to it.

The widget is available from the app store as "the wallet list".
15  Bitcoin / Project Development / [ANNOUNCE] - store your btc address in the cloud on: February 11, 2012, 09:50:15 PM

Wouldn't it be nice if sending bitcoins was as easy as sending email?
Hopefully soon it will be.. opened its doors today. The core of the site is a
simple mapping from email addresses to bitcoin addresses. Registering
is free and you can add as many email addresses as you like.

Once you're signed up, if someone wants to send you bitcoins, they
don't need to remember your address -- they can just look it up.

There is also a simple API for easy integration with bitcoin apps.

Check it out and let us know what you think!

18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / what advantages does bitcoin have over the alternative chains? on: October 17, 2011, 05:39:43 PM
I see only two significant advantages:
1. a network-effect monopoly. Almost everyone who's using a cryptocurrency uses bitcoin. Relatively speaking, almost nobody uses an alternate chain.
2. Best exchanges. Mtgox and tradehill trade bitcoins, not solidcoins or tenebrix.

Is there anything else I haven't thought of?
