The term "Bitcoin developer" is funny.
Guess it would better to talk about a "blockchain developer" or a "cryptocurrency payment specialist".

Wow!

That's an honest company. Unlike Poloniex which still hasn't paid back what it stole from its customers.

Read my lips: if you have to choose between Poloniex and Coinbase, don't hesitate a single second, go for Coinbase.

I'm not game to actually try to use their lending system, but I don't recall seeing the Lend link next to my CLAM balance since the "incident". My memory may have failed, though.

If they are indeed lending CLAM again it could be potentially risky, since CLAM has been in maintenance for around a month... no deposits or withdrawals. It's essentially a virtual token at the moment.

So Poloniex could be even worse that I thought!
I sure don't want to test it, but if they have reinstated CLAM lending, they're mad. I wish I had discovered their madness before June...

It's funny because I created that topic 3 and a half years ago:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1359031

In February 2016, I tried unsuccessfully to pay my Hungarian dentist with BTC. It was possible to pay with cash, card or bank wire, forints or euros.

Good to know it's possible, now. Besides, I was in Budapest this morning, I noticed the currency went up against the since my last time there.

Last time I've paid income tax was in 1997, so it can be done... And no country wants to put me in jail.
Means you are not making money in millions that is why you didn't get attention.

Silly comment. I'm not looking for attention but I'm not hiding. Never underestimate the taxman, he also looks for small fish.
Understand my comment,when you are not getting any attention from the government for violating the laws means you are not making huge amount of money.

Right>

Can't you understand what I'm saying? I wrote it twice already. I repeat, nobody's looking for me, I'm not breaking any law. I'm fully legal.
Haven't you heard of the Bahamas, Monaco, Dubai? There are several countries in the world without any income tax.

There are also countries which do not tax foreign income.

It is very possible and legal not to pay any income tax, and millions of people do.
But i still pay property tax, VAT, tax on petrol, etc... You can't avoid those.

Poloniex sent me (and to all other victims) the following email:

Quote
Dear Poloniex Customer,

We committed to fully reimburse all losses incurred on our platform due to a June 2019 margin incident.

We are pleased to share that today you have received your first trading fee reimbursement credit. This lump sum reimburses 100% of trading fees assessed from June 6th to September 5th. Moving forward, you will continue receiving daily trading fee credits until all losses have been reimbursed.

Additionally, starting as soon as possible, we will begin reimbursing 100% of all lending fees.

Thank you very much for your patience as we continue to work to resolve this incident. In addition to our commitment to making you whole, we remain dedicated to earning back your trust, which we know will take time and further investment.

Should you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to reach our Support Team here.

Sincerely,

Team Poloniex

They haven't forgotten, neither do I!
But their answer is quite insulting.

I've received a credit of less than 0.00001... BTC

This is ridiculous when I've lost more than 1 BTC...

Unfortunately, these two resources are teeming with fake news, so I try not to read them
If I were you, I would not completely stay away from them , because sometimes, out of every news they carry which we could call rumor, there might be element of truth in it, and I would not want to believe that the only news they carry often more are negative news, I think that they also do carry some news that are real.
even the poster of this article, I am also sure that he would have had some series of news that he has posted too without verifying it,

No, I've never done that.
You may check all my previous posts.

It takes too much time to find out what's real and what's fake...
As I've said before, Cointelegraph is better, they published another article, so if you really have to, read just this one.

To get the latest news about the issue, check the "Poloniex Lending Theft" group on Telegram.
12  Economy / Exchanges / Re: Advice needed on which exchange to use to buy Bitcoin on: September 03, 2019, 09:31:52 AM
Avoid Poloniex and Coinbase.
If you're in Europe, I recommend bitcoin.de or Kraken.

Why not pay taxes? After all, they often go to good deeds, to health care, the environment, etc. Or am I mistaken somewhere?

The only way to be a US citizen and not pay federal income taxes is to become a resident of the US territory, Puerto Rico.

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/10/4/16385658/puerto-rico-taxes-hurricane

Everything in this thread to the contrary is a lie.

I'm not American, but I know there's another way. You may legally avoid US tax, if you're a US citizen permanently living outside the US, and if you earn less than $100,000 per year.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What are the Top Cryptocurrency Exchanges that provides high-level security? on: August 29, 2019, 07:38:35 PM
I would first suggest to avoid Poloniex, as it socializes loss. Poloniex stole 1,800 BTC from its users earlier this year.

Then I would suggest Kraken, which is not the biggest exchange, but I've never had any trouble with them.

Also Bitfinex, because they really put the customer first. You may have heard of the issue with Tether, it was quite huge, $850 million big if I remember correctly, but no customer has suffered a loss. I say that's impressive.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Coindesk & Cointelegraph give Fake News on: August 29, 2019, 07:33:07 PM
i have seen your issues with Polo and i am not sure how that will end

#MeToo!
If it ends badly for me, my only hope is that it will end badly for Poloniex too.
At the very least, their reputation is now quite terrible among traders, and I'm very happy with that.

Even as a non-citizen, most countries withhold taxes on passive earnings form your financial instruments in that country.

There are some countries where you pay no tax on dividends or capital gains but for the most part, if you have substantial assets in stock markets around the world, you'll be paying taxes to the countries where those securities domicile.

If you a legal resident of a country, you are liable for property and income taxes, in addition to any value-added taxes on goods and services, duties, license fees etc.


Hey, I've been doing that for more than 20 years, so I know how it works.

I'm not paying any income tax, but I'm paying my property taxes, last year I've even paid VAT on a car I had just imported to a country where I'm not living. It's stupid, but there's no way I could have it registered to my name otherwise...
17  Economy / Exchanges / Re: Poloniex's taking money from its customers to cover its loss on: August 27, 2019, 08:54:31 AM
An article about the Poloniex incident was just posted by a user at our web site: https://creditstocks.com/poloniex-scam-alert/
Spread the word, if you agree.

Thanks a lot for your support.
I appreciate it.

they are not the guilty about this error

Yes, they are. News magazines are supposed to give verified news, otherwise they're worthless.
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: When will Bitcoin be more energy efficient? on: August 27, 2019, 08:51:23 AM
Mining BTC is very energy efficient. The only problem here is greed.
With more and more people getting into mining, it's taking more and more energy to mine.

The only way to reduce BTC's global energy consumption would be to reduce the number of people mining.
20  Other / Politics & Society / Re: How to stop paying taxes, and get out from under government control. on: August 25, 2019, 04:12:44 PM
There are several ideas here, as I am very experienced with these questions, I can give some much needed explanations.

1/ It's absolutely impossible to stop paying tax.

You sure can avoid paying income tax, but if you drive a car and buy gas, sleep at an hotel or buy a sugary drink, you will pay some tax doing any of those acts.

2/ You can get out of government control.

I know because I've done it. The last time I've paid income tax was in 1997, and nowadays, I don't even bother filling a single tax form. I wouldn't not even know in what country I should fill one as I'm traveling all the time. I'm writing this from Chisinau, Moldova. I've arrived in this country yesterday, and I'm leaving next week. But not paying income tax is only one side of the question, I've stopped being a citizen. I don't vote. I couldn't even register to vote as I don't have a fixed address in the country which grants me a passport.

That's the point, you must stop being a citizen.
