Crypto Exchange QaudrigaCX Goes Offline, Claims Maintenance Issues

https://cointelegraph.com/news/crypto-exchange-qaudrigacx-goes-offline-claims-maintenance-issues

"Canadian cryptocurrency exchange QuadrigaCX is down for maintenance, according to an announcement on its webpage on Jan. 28. The exchange, which has been wrapped up in legal troubles with the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC), is inaccessible as of press time.
...
The exchanges users, some of whom have purportedly been unable to access or withdraw their funds for months, took to Reddit and Twitter. One user asked, “Shouldn't you let your customer know before taking it down?” Some users on a Reddit post speculated as to whether the exchange had gone insolvent. One commenter stated, “They will declare insolvency due to an inability to find a suitable bank to host an account and facilitate transfers.”

 Thank you JBreher for giving me the heads up about Jan 3rd proof of keys!  I am still proving and very grateful for the heads up.  I might otherwise have been crying about this news.

You're welcome, xhomerx10. Trace Mayer probably deserves a nod, as I think the entire idea of commemorating the anniversary with this communal Proof Of Keys event was his. I merely reminded the WO community. Of course, fundamentally, the real lesson here is 'Not your keys - Not your Bitcoin'.
Who keeps any suitable amount on these little piss ant exchanges though?

Well, I'd been buying all the way down from $20K. I was surprised to really cogitate upon how much had merely accumulated on exchange due to this activity. I've since put some back in order to re-establish my sell ladder, but not nearly so much as I drew down EOY.

Awesome explanation I must say! Wink

Let's try this!

Might be difficult with tiny blocks. You may need a more capacious chain.

which bitcoin credit card do you guys use, can you recommend one?

I have a Shift card. It's not a credit card though - it's a Visa-branded debit card. I don't really use it though. Here in USA, we need to track all use of crypto to buy things as a taxable capital gains event. Which makes using the card a headache.

Hmm... just pulled the Shift card out of the desk drawer. Looks like I don't have a Shift account any longer. Expired 1/19. They didn't contact me to re-up. Maybe because my relative non-use is nothing but a headache for them?

I don't know if it's a good or bad news for BTC  Undecided

Gaza's Ruling Group Hamas Seeks Funding in Bitcoin to Combat Financial Isolation

Quote
The militant arm of Hamas — the de facto ruling authority of the Gaza Strip in Palestine — has appealed to its supporters to send it funds using Bitcoin (BTC). The appeal was made via the official Telegram channel of Abu Obeida, a spokesman for Hamas’ Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, on Jan. 29.

In his message, Abu Obeida called upon “all lovers of the resistance and the supporters of our righteous cause to support the resistance financially using ‘Bitcoin’ currency,” adding that an exact funding mechanism for transacting the crypto would be announced later. He continued:

“The Zionist enemy is fighting the resistance by trying to cut its support by all means, but the resistance lovers in all the world are fighting these Zionist attempts and are seeking to find all possible support for the resistance."

Abu Obeida’s turn to Bitcoin comes in the immediate context of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to temporarily freeze millions of dollars in Qatari aid — including $15 million a month to pay the salaries of Hamas civil servants — from entering the Gaza Strip, in retribution for a recent flare-up in border tensions between Israel and Hamas.

They keep taking about the ripple's tech. Can I ask what tech is it other than being a centralized database?

Well, it's a centralized blockchain. Which suffers the counterparty risk of a centralized database, but has some of the positive aspects -- such as universal auditability -- of a blockchain.

Quote
Am I missing something? How is it going to make a difference over SWIfT?

SWIFT is slow, cumbersome, rent-seeking, not universally-auditable, and carries the counterparty risk of its centralization. Reimplementing SWIFT with XRP at its core would eliminate or vastly reduce several of these issues. So yes, you are missing something. The perspective of those entities for which SWIFT provides value - namely, financial institutions.

Quote
I mean the shit we get by using SWIFT has nothing to do with its tech at all. We stay away from it because it is centralized.

Sure, we do. But financial institutions? Not so much. So SWIFT isn't for you. Why would you expect it to cater to your desires, when it was built for large financial entities?

Quote
So why the fuck they act like ripple is solving a problem?

It is. See above.

Quote
Bitcoin solved it already by kicking the centralized shitheads out.

Until Bitcoin grows by a couple orders of magnitude, it is not a solution for the entities that actually use SWIFT.

Quote
Am I wrong?

Not wrong exactly. Just looking at the issue from an irrelevant viewpoint.

I mean, I have no need for an airlock. But to claim that 'we've already solved this problem - it's a hinged entry door' does little to solve the astronauts' problem of retaining breathable air within a spacefaring vessel.

Found this on twitter



Several years ago, I spent one full Bitcoin to buy an assorted handful of Zimbabwean bank notes. Notional value negligible. Lulz value in excess of the twenny bux or so that BTC was worth at the time.

True story.

Do I regret it? Hellz naaaw. Makes for instructive contrast.

The internet didn't have the internet to fuel its adoption.
But guess what does?
Bitcoin.

Bitcoin isn't so much as a get-rich-quick scheme, rather that fiat is a get-poor-slow scheme

No you're not. But this is ripple. Facts don't matter. Bots matter. xrparmy shills any article like the coindesk piffle and wahay 10% pump. Then Brad can sell more of his kleptocurrency

but this is turning into fake news about r3Corda supporting all cryptocurrencies to replace swift.
basically just any nonsense will do to pump their bags so they can get out

V8 is right. R3 Corda doesn’t really have anything to do with Ripple.  

The connections are as tenuous as this:  

*Swift is going to trial IPhones for its staff

*iPhones have an App Store.  

*Ripple has an App on the App Store which supports XRP.
