There is hope to get our money back? sad thing we won't our coins back


By all accounts, as it's structure now there is no hope of getting over 20% of your money returned.

That said, I do have a plan on how to make Cryptsy's class action filers whole again. In fact, if all  goes according to plan they'll come out like bandits.

No, this is not a joke and am willing to disclose the basics on this thread prior to dedicating a new thread to the ideal.

Anybody interested, say aye!

I am a new bitcoin user. I recently bought bitcoin off of www.wallofcoins.com. they are suppose to be escrow for buyers and sellers. After 5 days of my account being in review by someone named john macpherson, i started to do some research, his name comes up on this thread many times. It is very concerning because it appears this thread was created over a fraudulent event.

Can someone tell me how this guy john fits into the crypsty scandal. I feel like he is holding my money at ransom for personal information, so they can steal my identity.

Thank you kindly

Do none of you understand how scaling an infrastructure works? They've had a huge increase in traffic and users which is putting huge stress on their infrastructure. No doubt they're adding huge amounts of servers daily to help cope. Give it a little bit of time and I'm sure it'll be as smooth as it used to!

Assuming I don't understand how scaling an infrastructure works, which I do (okay, maybe just more than somewhat, but I digress), I do understand that a U$117.21M is more than enough to build a massive robust trading platform, and so do the deep-pocket investors who infused said U$117.21M to Coinbase, not counting the countless millions earned by CB over the course of its lifetime.

https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/coinbase#/entity


Which begs the questions, why isn't said robust trading platform built by Coinbase, why aren't the initial investors pressing for such, and is it possible that it's to the best interest of Coinbase and its investors in having the problematic platform perform exactly as it has been over the years because a robust system just wouldn't be as profitable due there being less chances for human interference?

I'm willing to bet that there's trading platforms readily available for less than U$2M that include support with, perhaps, even providing on-demand free blowjobs at that price point.

Addressing the "ayes" in a sec, guys.

PS: It'd cost you nothing to participate.

Aye!

Aye!

Okay, here's the plan: I create this new coin ...  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Seriously, guys, that's the plan, but allow me to present a brief while your dick's still hard.

Firstly, as promised there's no money needing to be paid to participate provided you've successfully filed a class action claim, providing proof of said claim being the most problematic aspect of my plan, but sure there's a solution of which I wouldn't be privy to vitals, with a general idea on how to accomplish said feat.

The token I've alluded to is CoinProLite (CPL) -> https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1900371.0 (same link as in my sig).

In lieu of, or in conjunction with burning schitcoins, up to 700M CPL (U$7M worth on YuTübopolis' platform, valued at no less than U$0.01 ea.) could easily be doled to those harmed by Cryptsy who've successfully filed a class action claim.

This awardment would be over and beyond what you'll receive once the class action lawsuit is settled months (maybe years) down the road.

e.g.: If you lost $1,000 worth of alts (or actual fiat would apply), whatever the exchange rate for any particular alt at the time that Cryptsy closed is exactly what you would receive in CPL, in this case 100K CPL.

To be clear, you're not burning anything nor giving me anything of value including your vitals.

Any questions at this point?

Hi gleb

Thanks for the reply. I have tried their chat window crew but they reroute me to john macpherson.

Is john aka horus one of the good guys? Im trying to get a pulse on his credibility because the purchase of bitcoin for the average joe investor is a bit daunting and there seems to be a large amount of fradulent activity associated with it.

At one time there was strong reservations about Horus on this forum re Cryptsy, but the general consensus is that he's been given a second chance to prove himself in this space, including from myself. Rest assured that he was a bad guy, I would be sticking it up his ass big time upon reading your initial post, bud.

Hope that helps.

The consensus is all who were at cryptsy had the chance to speak out about the crap that was going on. Now they are all implicated.

It is good that these people are known and it is easy to find them.

Cryptsy users who are now profiting of this big rise in crypto are now using that cash to retrieve their losses.

And I can assure there are many out there who will make these people pay.

Hi Bruno

I would like to thank you because after you messaged wall of coins my order was fulfilled, I am glad I was able to find someone with clout in this cryptospace. Many many thanks to you, and I hope you and other members seeking fulfillment from this cryptsy fiasco are made whole again.

I was meaning to check who the OP was of this thread, and just remembered to check.

Anyone know where he is or what happened?



He got mad at me and Gamow for trolling on this topic or something and sad he was leaving this topic and then went on to create a new one just like this.
Read his comment history Wink https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=123857;sa=showPosts

And he claimed to have worked out his problems with Cryptsy long ago when Vern himself showed up on this topic helping him.

Yup.. Vern seen this topic 400 pages ago.. he knows it's here and he could comment but he's apparently busy.. maybe with JShock flogging "rate coin" via Social Media ?

Thanks! I missed your reply.

That is great to hear, bud. Will you be paying me the U$1,000 you owe me for my services via bitcoins, Ethereum, pre-trading Qtum tokens, or Ratecoin?  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Seriously, you owe me nothing. If you were to offer me a thousand dollars (or any amount) I would turn it down, for I've never requested or received moneys for my services in this space over the course of six years that I've been here. In fact, I'm on record in stating that if any person on the planet can definitive produce a counter-example of the above, theymos has my permission to ban ALL my user accounts on this forum, whereupon I'll then truly be an old man without a job.

Apologies for bumping the above again, but wanted to say that I've garnered interest via PMs, of which I'm replying to in a moment. I truly believe that this could work, as do others, hence going to retune my venture (see sig), starting a new thread to get the ball a rollin'. FUCK ME! I just realized that I'll have to edit the press release to include this aspect. The fuckin shit I have to do around here for retards to get their moneys back from scam artists is mindblowing.  Tongue Tongue Tongue

Organic popcorn, cuz CORN is the #1 GMO-f*cked US crop.  Cry Cry Cry Cry 

Don't eat anything with non-Organic corn in it.  People are testing positive for Glyphosate (chemical pesticides) in their bodies.

OK. Back on topic:

Being a former Cryptsy guy I saw quite a bit and most of the time I was employed there I have to say at least the employees I knew were really trying hard to make the best exchange possible for the users.

After following this thread for a while there are a few things I wanted to get off my chest. Never were any of us told there had been a hack where funds were never recovered. Numerous time there were incidents where a few coins got stolen here and there but Paul would usually "get them back" or refund them through his own coffers. Working for the guy you never got the sense he was shady until near the end. Once he started going off to China to start another international venture (remember Cryptsy Canada) and would go out of communication with the rest of us things started getting difficult. Hot wallets would go dry and would require him to fill them back up which was always the norm. He would just typically not get it that low and Mullick would bug him until it got fixed. The thing was it took longer and longer for him to do that. The other thing that never made sense out of all this was Paul had money big house lots of cars beyond his incompetence none of us possibly imagined he could be insolvent. We did imagine that he was a horrible CEO and manager of people. Most of the days it was a struggle to keep the place running no one would make a decision they would just wait on the all might Paul to come and fix stuff that they could not control. After reading the 500 pages of this thread I have made a few observations and theories.

1. The Cryptsy employees did care about the users they were just conned by the same con man. Most of us were not paid very much by the way.
2. I believe Paul embezzled money from the company to fund his personal lifestyle of jet setting to China but I think it was from more than the stolen money that was identified.
3. The incompetence of the thief mirrors some of the incompetence of the CEO meaning whoever it is probably lost the keys to that wallet.
4. Things felt really shady when Marshall Long came on the scene and felt more legit after he left.
5. Jshock after a few years at Cryptsy knew as much about crypto then as he did when it started. Meaning next to nothing. I am also pretty sure he is dead broke and always has been. Basically I do not think he is the mastermind nor profited.
6. Cryptsy at its peak had like 40 employees if there was a conspiracy internally it was well hidden or people would come forward. The employees could only see what Paul let us see on the web gui admin interface. So it always showed balanced or we as employees would try and fix that. That of course does not mean we had access to the wallets only Mullick did and from what I was told he only had access to the ones that Paul let him have access too. Certain ones were "protected from all employees to prevent theft" this actually made sense at the time.

The Class action is only making the lawyers rich probably the worst thing that could have been done. Even more ridiculous is coinbase class action. Efforts I think would be better placed on suing the Bitcoin Foundation and asking them to fork out the stolen millions. There is precedent for that with Ethereum and seems a large enough community to force that issue.

I would be happy to answer other questions that I feel comfortable answering if it helps.

To be fair, nobody really expects a "former Cryptsy guy" to come forward and say "yep, I knew Vernon was stealing and I didn't give a shit". Such people would either keep their trap shut or lie.

Having said that, I don't really get why you would say that class action is the worst thing. Yes, it might benefit the lawyers IF THERE IS ANYTHING TO RECOVER. The lawyers are taking the risk too. On the other hand, suing Bitcoin Foundation would be a waste of money. They don't control Bitcoin the way Vitalik controls Ethereum. Bitcoin didn't fork for Gox, which was a much larger loss, and it won't fork for Cryptsy.
