1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][ICO] 🚀 TOKPIE 🚀 P2P Cryptocurrency-Fiat and Swap Exchange. Zero fees on: May 10, 2018, 04:37:16 PM
so many exchanges are now. Tell me, do you have any cardinal difference from the others? and where is your team? Can you get more information?
Judging by the fact that registration on most exchanges due to a large influx of users is closed, the total number of exchanges still can not meet the existing demand.
I agree with you. The other day Bittrex opened the registration of new users, but almost immediately closed again because there were too many people who wanted to register an account.

The last time I logged in on Bittrex I saw they force you to verify the account. Does that take long or is it a quick and smooth process?

The logging in, posting of trading orders, withdrawals and other processes will require 2FA verification. A person could be able to disable 2FA for some operations, but we would strongly recommend not to disable them.

I am not talking about the 2fa verification, that should be a no-brainer to anyone. I was referring to the overall identity verification that is now required to do anything there. I stopped using them once that kicked in.

Identity verification will be required at first time (during account creation).

Why is the exchange actually called a p2p exchange? Is it supposed to be fully decentralized and if yes, why would there be ID verification for a decentralized exchange?

Thanks for your questions!
P2P because people can trade with other peers (by the way a peer may be a business entity, so we support P2P, B2B, B2P types of transactions)
It's decentralized only in terms of fiat funds. Users send fiat money directly to each other. So we do not have any exchange bank account that can be blocked or arrested by authorities.  

ID verification is needed in order to let us be legally compliable in all countries and serve as many people as possible. Here is the detailed explanation of why we need ID verification:

There is a logical issue with your explanation. Fiat can't be transferred without third parties being involved. If I send USD to someone else, there must be someone who takes notice of that. In Bitcoin the miners do the job. Who does the job on your exchange?

A person (seller of crypto asset) who accept your money notices that - after his/her confirmation of money acceptance, the buyer gets crypto-asset.

The risks related to scam/unfair trade (when a seller says "I did not get money" but buyer prove it during the dispute) will be minimal because of KYC.

but there are banks involved if there is fiat involved. Money needs to be sent from one bank to another. There is no way to fully decentralize that, at least not right now.

Yes, but p2p fiat transfers are much safer than the use of centralized exchanges as intermediaries. There are a lot of examples especially in the last 6 month when central banks, ordinary banks, and regulatory authorities, push high pressure on fiat deposits/accounts of crypt exchanges.

3  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: Questions about ICO participation as a United States citizen on: February 28, 2018, 11:14:28 PM
US CItizens are prohibited to participate in ICO's to safeguard their citizens from fraud/scam. ICO's to keep themselves safe from any legal obligation, they now ask for KYC information before applying/or at the time of distribution of token. So you can't  bypass VPN to participate in ICO's.  doubt you have much to worry about if you're thinking of using a bypass (VPN, for example) for short-term participation.

" ICO uses KYC to keep themselves safe from any legal obligation". But what if ICO is not from the US and its tokens are utility tokens (not security)?

I prefer choosing (a) and (b). and option (c) more will allow unsold tokens.

I prefer a crowdsale sale that has a way of more and more quickly attract investors!

So (c) offers a good stake to public (70%) and still have some reserve for future growth. win-win -)

70% offered to the public is a normal rate! no one will tell that this is too low level.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Token sale conditions, what to choose?? on: February 19, 2018, 12:49:56 PM
Reconsidering all your comments, we now think about such allocation scheme:

Reserve: 5 years hold with 6 month 10% cliffs. It will be applied to inspire confidence to the contributors and facilitate the future platform growth.
Prices: not too high price discounts from 5 to 20% and limitations for pre-sale amounts (max $ 5k).
Team: jsut 10% to the team with 2 years hold _ 6-month 25% cliffs

Kindly comment this new allocation.

Amount of Tokens = 20 000 000
Offered to public = 14 000 000
All unsold tokens will be burned.

pre-ICO price
- $0.40 (20% discount) duration is 2 weeks
Max. contribution amount to one account = $5 000 equvalent

ICO price   
- $0.425 (15% discount) 1 week
- $.045   (10% discount) 2 week     
- $.0475 (5% discount)   3 week 
- $.050   (0% discount)   4 week 

- 70% Public
- 16,7% Growth Reserve (5 years hold with 6-month 10% cliffs )
- 10% team (2 years hold with 6-month 25% cliffs)
- 3,3% bounties

now, this allocation looks better  than (a) and (b)

i think people don't like that tokens which they buy today will be inflated later by a "reserve" (option b)...even if that reserve will be spread over 3 years
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: How to be hooked by bounties? FREE tokens tricks! on: February 15, 2018, 11:18:20 AM
There are too many campaigns but I am sure the trend is just at the beginning of the devastating growth period.
I use some small group channels in the telegram to be notified about new good bounty campaigns, and my payment for that is the %  that a person (invitor) get from my participation.

Have you managed to make any profits at all from your ICO investments? If you only invested in December, it's too soon to tell whether a coin will perform or not. You have to help things along by building a community, ensuring that the coins are listed on many exchanges etc, and it's hard work.

What exchanges do you recommend for just-after-ICO startup if not Etherdelta or Hitbtc?

Special thanks to achow101 for Algorithm idea. (I made some changes on it.)

Nice idea! but you should add the helper (for example I don't know where is my account ID located) of course I can find out it by myself but ...

I'd say security, low fees and ease of use.
But I would  also to your list the factor of no verification needed (aka the option to stay anonymous). This is the main feature I look for when choosing an exchange.

Another feature is to have high limits (or maybe not limits at all). There are ridiculous exchanges with such low limits!

it's already a norm/standard to take selfie+photo ID from a client.
Concerning the limits it's also impossible to find an exchange with no limits at all=)
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / Re: Bounty Manager wanted on: February 12, 2018, 08:59:24 AM
What is the usual rate (in % from all tokens release) that charge bounty manager (if he paid only by token)?
15  Economy / Economics / Re: Why do you want high price of bitcoin after all? on: February 12, 2018, 01:16:53 AM
The higher the price, the more news it gets and adoption increases. To me, that's why a high price is good.

Agree with you. But steadily increase is better - with no high fluctuations inside a day. This will happen when more and more people will be involved in trading.
16  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: Why Banks are attacking Bitcoin ? on: February 03, 2018, 09:58:50 PM
The main reason (why banks don't like btc and other cryptos) is the loss of profits.
Transactions made via blockchain kills transactions made via banks.

But the topic is essential! It should be upped!

Agree! We all must take a piece of world money pie (from banks) by using crypto assets.
17  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Help! 2 merits for best answer: What exchange has the cheapest ETH withdrawal? on: February 03, 2018, 08:36:52 PM
So I need ETH to move my ERC20 tokens around and to do some interaction with smart contracts. I don't really need a lot of ETH, only $5 worth.

The problem is most exchanges charge 0.005 ETH ( $4.97) to 0.01 ETH ($9.94) per withdrawal! Even Shapeshift charges around that much. I have a work around in mind already but it will take $30 (I have to sell $25 worth back to get back the fiat) and jumping from fiat > BTC > DOGE > ETH.

It's funny though that you can transfer ETH wallet to wallet for 1 - 20 gwei (roughly $0.02 to $0.80). I think these exchanges are conducting highway robbery.

18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Useful info: how to avoid cheating when selling bitcoin via PayPal! on: February 03, 2018, 07:07:58 PM
You have given suggested some good measures which will prevent the buyer from doing a charge back. But there are some issues here:

1) If you receive large amount of money as "friends and family" option, PayPal may block your account. That option is not for selling digital items.

2) Also as you are selling digital items, if the buyer makes a chargeback, it will be in his favor. If you do not pay back, you will loose PayPal account.

Thus, it is better to use any other payment option for this. Escrow is best.

Sure, PayPal should not be used for large amount of money.

20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: bitcoin is going down - it will stop at 7600 BTC/USD or 4700 level. Vote! on: February 03, 2018, 12:23:23 PM
The price of 5000 will be good for purchase  Grin
I hope it will not go down to $5000 level. Yes it is good to buy in at $5000 but if it goes down that levels, people can lose their belief in cryptocurrencies.

if it goes below 4700 then 1500 what we will see before great and long 3rd wave to 100k
