This doesn't mean we are ignoring account verification

I have had an account pending Tier 3 verification for three months now. While I appreciate that you have a sudden influx of new users, on that sort of timescale, it definitely feels like it is being ignored.

I suppose the obvious question to ask here is why make it public, if it's making you money?

This is not fast enough moving forward, so I'm going to be overhauling the cache system to spread the load among even more threads

This is a good idea in an ideal world, but are the exchanges going to be okay with you hammering the APIs in this fashion? The (public) orderbook APIs are usually more forgiving, but still, especially if

cache daemons will need to be spawned for each user as well

I could see exchanges starting to blacklist IPs.

Also, if it wasn't clear from my first post (likely), I would be interested in beta testing when things get that far.

I ran across your bot on twitter (I periodically search for likely outputs from trading bots on twitter so keep tabs on the 'opposition'); this looks like a pretty competent outfit. If I ever find a bot that I think's better than mine, I'd cheerfully switch to using it.

Given that you are going to be opening it up to users, presumably users will simply have to trust you with their API keys?

I can understand why people are viewing this with skepticism, but as someone who frequents -otc-uk, aldur1 and Azelphur are names that are making me pay attention.

I will be watching with interest.

Being able to see how much shipping is and how much needed to pay in BTC without entering contact details would be nice.

I must admit, having had a ticket open for four days and seeing no support in IRC during that time is a little worrying.

I am worried that they discovered their Cryptsy Points calculation was wrong (i.e. they were depositing too many Cryptsy Points into accounts).

The more I think about it, the more likely I think this is.

Based on https://www.cryptsy.com/users/cryptsypoints:

Quote
How Many Points Will I Earn?

Each point has a reward value of 0.001 BTC. You will earn points based on 4% of the trade fees collected on your account. You will also earn points based on 1% of the trade fees collected from your referrals.

So lets say you paid out 0.1 BTC in trade fees in a given day and you had 10 referred users which also paid 0.1 BTC in trade fees each on that day.

Points Earned Directly     4 CP
Points Earned from Referrals     10 CP
Total Points Earned that Day     14 CP

40 CP corresponds to 1BTC in trade fees, or a turnover on an account of roughly 400 BTC, assuming an average trade fee of 0.25%. Scaling these numbers up to my account, I get what seems like a totally preposterous turnover, which suggests something is amiss. If there's a mistake in the above calculation, someone please point it out!

Are withdrawals blocked for accounts that have negative Cryptsy Points?

Yup.

I am worried that they discovered their Cryptsy Points calculation was wrong (i.e. they were depositing too many Cryptsy Points into accounts), have now retroactively fixed it, and this is going to leave everyone who sold Cryptsy Points holding a debt that's about to explode in value with a massive reduction in the Cryptsy Points supply.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][Exchange] Latest Cryptsy Additions, News and announcements. NEW SITE on: December 21, 2013, 06:52:05 AM

Entz the points issue is being addressed right now should fix after this sitewide audit.

I'll hold off posting this ticket then. The points issue is not a usual 'negative coins' problem though - the historical deposits of Cryptsy Points appear to have been changed, and made much smaller, and so anyone who sold Cryptsy Points has a large negative balance.

Any progress on getting a build working properly on Mavericks? The build I currently have (0.89.99.9-beta) sort-of works, but crashes if I have it open for too long. This makes creating transactions much more stressful than it should be!

You can buy Amazon UK vouchers from http://cryptodechange.com for BTC.

EDIT: Buy/by. I'm a terrible person.

Sadly, I'm not in the US so can't get involved in this, but you should also mention whether anything is boxed.

I'm seeing much fewer crossed orderbooks, which is a massive improvement on the last few days.

I am also not seeing any interest payments, despite being qualified to receive them.

We have reduced the minimum required balance to 1BTC, 100LTC or 400 PPC for interest payment eligibility.

Much happier about these numbers.

huge news from vircurex:

1 Dec 2013 - Earn interet on BTC, LTC and PPC deposits NEW
We will be releasing today our function of earning interests on account balances for BTC, LTC and PPC. The interest paid is 15% of our collected trading fees for the coins. The payout is every 6 hours. See the help section for details.

This does seem good at first glance. Further reading of the help section makes me less excited, however:

Quote
Earn interests on Deposits
You can now earn interest on your deposits. Every 6 hours we will pay out 15% of the earned trade fees to account holders who hold at least 5 BTC, 500 LTC or 2000 PPC respectively. The amounts will be paid out proportionally to the total account balance. We take a snapshot every 6 hours and pay out based on the account balance at that point in time. We reserver the right change the schedule without prior announcement.
This feature is currently limited to BTC, LTC and PPC; for the next 3 months. Should sufficient interest be shown, we may extend it to other coins as well as extend the time frame.

These are quite large deposits (about $6000, $17500 and $14000). Incentivising users all of a sudden to deposit such large amounts of capital makes me a touch suspicious.

I'm pretty sure I just saw the LTC/BTC orderbook crossover...  Undecided

EDIT: Yeah, I'm seeing this sort of thing a lot all of a sudden:
