1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / The SEC has started enforcement actions against fraudulent ICOs on: September 29, 2017, 10:27:35 PM
According to a new press release from the SEC, two ICOs have been targeted for enforcement actions -- REcoin and the Diamond Reserve Club, which are apparently run by some fraud named Maksim Zaslavskiy. He claimed that $2 - $4 million was raised in the ICOs, when only $300,000 was raised. He also claimed to have a "team of lawyers, professionals, brokers, and accountants" when apparently none had ever been consulted. There is an emergency court order to freeze his assets (but good luck to the victims in recovering the funds)....

2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / LedgerX to begin trading, ETF expected by end of year on: September 21, 2017, 09:04:38 PM
Some exciting news is developing on the US regulatory front. LedgerX, the first CFTC-regulated swap execution facility, is set to begin trading next month. They have officially notified the CFTC that they will be listing their Bitcoin swap contract as early as October 4th:

I'll take this with a grain of salt, but the CEO of believes that we can expect a Bitcoin ETF in the U.S. by the end of this year. That seems ambitious given how brutal the SEC was in its decision early in the year. But time will tell.
3  Economy / Service Discussion / Bitpay issues on: August 19, 2013, 05:00:37 PM
I attempted to buy 2 gift cards on Gyft via Bitpay last night, and paid for them. The transactions were shown on the blockchain and had one confirmation each prior to the invoices expiring. So I've paid and not received anything.

I emailed Gyft and Bitpay all the pertinent information 12 hours ago and have not heard back. Does anyone have any input regarding how long this should take to get resolved? Or if I will have problems recovering my money / gift cards?

(edit: Gyft just got back to me and said they just see the expired invoices and that I need to deal with Bitpay directly)

There is this account here for Bitpay --;u=31293 --  but it has not been online in 5 days, so I guess I won't bother with that.

I'd done this through Bitpay once with no problems before -- as soon as the payment was seen on the blockchain, my purchase was fulfilled. This certainly makes me hesitant to use Bitpay vendors again.
4  Economy / Service Discussion / WisePass "Ripple Gateway" -- SCAM? on: June 04, 2013, 05:15:08 PM
Looks to me like these guys are scamming. They ran a "BTC" giveaway where they had users trust them for 1 BTC. rL7Q47gzcJBTTGxcKKtkSgeXtenguwv7Vs has been cashing in Bitstamp IOU's in exchange for WisePass's (rPDXxSZcuVL3ZWoyU82bcde3zwvmShkRyF) worthless IOU's that are issued to those that trust WisePass.

Now they are running a "USD Giveaway" !!!

^^ You can see they've already cashed out a couple hundred real USD from those that trusted them. And going further back, all the BTC they have taken. I off here?
