Hey guys and gal:  I have some GDAX issues of what appears to be frozen GDAX trading based on my creating a support ticket, and a slow response from them.  Here's the context of two issues.

Issue 1) Last Monday 2/5, I requested a $500 transfer from my USA bank account (Bank of America) to GDAX, and on Thursday 2/8, I received an email from GDAX saying that my $500 transfer request had been stopped by my bank, and I also noticed that my bank account link had been removed from GDAX. 

Accordingly, I called my bank in an attempt to clarify whether there was a problem on their end.  The BOA support person said that he could not see any transaction on his end, so I decided to make another attempt through GDAX to relink my BOA account, and to request the $500 again. GDAX did not allow me to relink my BOA account (and it appeared that the BOA account had been blocked from being able to be linked, even though it showed up as one of the options of bank accounts available).  I created a GDAX support ticket describing issue 1.

Issue 2) On Thursday 2/8, I received an e-mail from Coinbase (at about the same time as I had received my stopped bank transfer request e-mail from GDAX regarding issue 1, above) saying that a previously hacked GDAX account (from February 2017) that I had been using, but no longer was using, had been denied my bank limit request increase.  I had not made any such a limit request increase for that hacked GDAX account, because I had not been using that hacked GDAX account.  At about the same time that I had sent my Issue 1 support ticket, I sent an e-mail to Coinbase support using the same string of communications from my February 2017 hack communications and asserted that I had not been using such hacked GDAX account, and I had not made any request to increase my limits for that hacked GDAX account.

Additional facts: Within hours of my submitting my GDAX issue 1 support ticket and my issue 2 e-mail to support, trading on my regular GDAX account was disabled, and then a few hours later, I was no longer able to sign into my regular GDAX account, even though I could still sign into Coinbase.   I don't know which of the two issues or if both had caused my disabled GDAX trade and my subsequent cut off from signing into GDAX, but on 2/10, I called GDAX support phone number, and the representative verified that they had a support ticket for issue 1.  She did not verify further what was going on on their end, and said that she could not help me, but instead my problem had to be referred to a GDAX support specialist, which she made such referral to a GDAX support specialist.  Therefore, I have been cut off from GDAX trading and ability to sign in to GDAX for about five days, and it has been nearly 3 days since my phone call to GDAX support was referred to the GDAX support specialist with no communication from them, so far.

Questions:

Currently, I am thinking that I am shit out of luck until the GDAX support specialist communicates back with me, and maybe I won't be able to do much, until a few more days pass, and then I perhaps I can follow up by calling up support again to check on the status.

Anyone have similar circumstances to mine?

Anyone have any suggestions regarding possible ways to attempt to expedite the processing of my frozen GDAX trading matter?

Sorry to hear that. Unfortunately I can't assist, but I'm curious as to what happened with your original GDAX account? How did it get 'hacked'? Did you have Google 2FA enabled?

Um, first of all: what does this have to do with Bitcoin Price Speculation?

And secondly, how could Fake News possibly the "biggest threat humankind will ever face"?  How about global warming, nuclear war, or over population / famine, just to name a few?

Well, for starters, global warming and overpopulation are fake news  Cheesy  So it's kind of a catch-all.

I don't want to talk too much about my own specific security measures; however, in early 2017, I had several accounts bitcoin accounts hacked into due to a forced phone porting and simultaneous taking over of a couple of my e-mail accounts.., which did not have Google authenticator at the time, but used 2 factor sms.   So, the attack was well coordinated and seemed to have involved a team based on how many things were occurring simultaneously and how many activities that they were able to take over... including multiple logging into accounts from different locations and  I have taken additional security measures regarding that in terms of the forced phone porting issue, and increasing the security of my e-mail accounts and even my bitcoin accounts.

I like the one where they say we are running out of water (then the article goes on to say fresh water)




Or the one where female circumcision is mutilation but male circumcision is healthy


I like how after 50 years and more of research no cure has been found, for anything, with all the f$%kin charitable research around (only vaccines, weird)

etc, etc , etc

wait, wait this ones good

we need to reduce carbon, we can tax it, yet we destroy more trees and pollute more water, the actual thing that creates air



Famine- this is another good one
End Last year western charities, newspapers and government were concerned for the famine and disease in "YEMEN"
The very f$%kin country they are helping the saudis to blow up....

Sounds like you are preaching something, oh wise Jojo.   Roll Eyes

Let me 'splain this to you, you patronizing fuck.  Cheesy Wink

I am just describing something bitcoin related, which does not really have much to do with your attempted "what I want" recharacterization, except for the fact that I mentioned if anyone might know about some additional actions that I could take to expedite or to share their information, and this would be an attempt at brainstorming to the extent that anyone is interested in such a circumstances. 

I have already learned a long fucking time ago regarding dealing with a variety of financial institutions that delays can happen and shit can happen too, and also that you don't want to put all your eggs in one basket in order to become desperate or panic because of some things that are out of your control...   anything involving 3rd parties can include giving up some control.

 So, yeah, I am already taking measures to deal with my lack of access to my GDAX account.... and I understand that I could be out of access to that GDAX account for a couple more weeks... especially when there is a lot of growing pains out there in the crypto space regarding demands on support.  Actually, in this case, I was surprised about the availability of a support phone number, because I think that the last time that I had an issue, last year, there was not a support phone line.

TLDR: I've been locked out of bitcoin accounts and other accounts before, so I am not new to the inconveniences of account lock outs rodeo.   Tongue

Sorry Jay, I wasn't really mocking you, more just commenting on the scandalous, embarrassing and infuriating state of affairs with the exchanges.

I mean seriously, their business model is almost entirely automated, they are skimming percentages off of BILLIONS...and they can't be bothered to adequately scale or maintain reasonable customer support.

It is really, deeply, unsatisfactory, and I can not wait until we can put these gatekeepers behind us.

So, I thought I would be on topic for once.
Here’s my speculation.

I predicted/guessed that we would end last year on about 10 000 USD. (And this year on 80 000).
We did end on about 20 000 USD, so was I wrong?
Well, yes, objectively, but if you factor out the enormous FOMO in the end that made us go superexponential and just continue the more relaxed exponential growth you would have ended up on about 10 000 USD.

If we had gone down to the 6000 territory in January from 10 000 instead of 20 000, the dip would have seemed as a totally normal December dip.

So in my view the enormous spike and the enormous dip that followed was an anomaly that should simply be ignored.
If we look at it as a dip from 10 000 instead, the recovery we are seeing now is quite normal and we will see 20 000 in a couple of months, followed by 40 000 three to four months after that and 80 000 by years end. Unless of course there is another end of year FOMO, in which case we might go to 120 000 or more followed by another super dip in January.

This year I will try to sell in December and by back in January.
