It's well worth reading the doc. It sounds like a truly bizarre situation.

https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/fbem/DocumentDisplayServlet?documentId=vIexA1b0spKOnK_PLUS_ZUGTJ3A==&system=prod

'Documents provided to OAG demonstrate that by mid-20 18. Bifinex was having extreme difficulty honoring its clients' requests to withdraw their money from the trading platform because Crypto Capital which held all or almost all of Bitfinex·s funds refused to process customer withdrawal requests and refused or was unable to return any funds to Bitfinex.'

It looks like they entrusted everything and were totally beholden to some Panamanian nobodies and were reduced to pleading for their own money from them. How the did BFX allow themselves to get into a situation like that?


Yep - they popped a cool billion dollars (some theirs but mostly client's money) with a dodgy offshore 'payment processor' to do payouts to customers within the banking system - as Finex had no practical access to it.  Around 800 million has now either been lost or simply stolen.

The pleading emails from 'Merlin' at Finex asking, nay pleading nicely to his mate 'Oz' at purported payment processer 'Crypto Capital' to at least pop a $100 million over as things were getting desperate are instructive.


Not YOUR bank, not you FIAT! lol

Some brutal poetic justice there...

I used to do a bit there, but never felt comfortable.  

That said, I just logged in and it turns out I have 0.08 BTC hanging around I'd forgotten about.  

But it will require 2FA set up (for five days prior) and ip Address locking in place for 5 days... And a possible eternal delay because their cold wallet is empty before five days are out.

Funny thing is that all this proves Tether *was* what it purported to be.

There must be less disastrous ways of demonstrating it.

I just have bought my ever first bitcoin. Not that much though (not preferred to share). I have had researched on bitcoin since January 2018 but didn't dare to invest in. I spent a hour or two daily on it to learn about it. Today, I have deposited a large amount of my savings and purchased bitcoin. I can feel the ride.

^^ Welcome to the club and congrats!

For your own safety please follow the rules below:

Rule #1 - create a second account with a nickname (not your real name) and use this account in the future. delete all your posts with the first acount and don't use it anymore (and use Tor if possible).

Rule #2 - don't tell anybody about your investment in Bitcoin.

Rule #3 - forget your investment for at least 5 years and please don't touch it to sell it in panic. just #HODL.

if you follow these Bitcoin basic rules you will stay safe.

EDIT: did some corrections but the post got quoted in the meantime.

What if that account is actually THE brand new account with a nickname (not his real name)?

Funny how roach shows up every time there's a dip.

Probably just a coincidence.

Strange you never surprise visit us when we are pumping Cheesy

It's funny how you use the word "pump" pretending like it's not a bad word and that completely non-aggregate market movements engineered by a single entity are anything but scams.  In the case of bitcoin, 99% of the time manipulation performed by a single entity on the fraudulent exchange Bitfinex all the way from $200 to $20,000.  I suppose once the goyim make membership in the evil cult of Judaism a crime punishable by death you will come to your senses.

What if that account is actually THE brand new account with a nickname (not his real name)?

The cynic in me says people know we’re generous Merit givers in this thread. Very convenient a Brand New account makes its first post here saying how they’ve just bought their first bitcoin & oh look, 21 Merit received.

Straight to the first signature campaign or bounty requring received Merit to earn money, never to post in the WO again.

Hmmmmm!

I am more cynical than you if I checked with the DdmrDdmr tool and discovered that the account sending him 20 merits has never sent anyone merits in the last 12 months?
Provided that everyone can send merit as she prefers, this is weird, I think.

How could you say such a thing?

I felt as a literary effort it didn't quite match some of the greatest works of our time. I do not feel that it will be studied by people wearing silver foil jumpsuits in the far future. I will wait for more tracts from this author before recommending him to my associates.

I’m a miserable bastard sometimes but I can usually tell if somebody is full of shit. That’s almost certainly Merit abuse imo.

Yup, that's why I give them benefit of doubt... but no merits until I have verified their post history and consistency. You know, don't trust, verify Wink

Also, even if a specific newbie is completely legit, shaddy ones might see and try to replicate.

I suggest you to start a daily show in meta LOL

~edited~

Lol no bhai, sometimes I am on read only mode here like other observers. I missed out 3-4 topic and couple of interesting topic because was typing from phone.


This is what White House Intelligence Briefings will look like when Bitcoin is the global reserve currency. Cheesy

Last part is very beautiful but I don't like mug shot... just saying

fascinating analysis. jolly well done

Smiley sometimes I struggles to get your British humour though.




My post timing is messed up. you guys talking about M abuse and I popped up with thanks msz.
