a shady exchange

Is it? Is this WEX above board? I'm not hip to all the goings-on. I know the vampire squid owns Poloniex now. Did WEX get got by fatcats? Or what exactly.

Well last July 2017, they got seized by the US Govt (they were operating as BTC-e), some of their bank accounts were seized and the websites, but I believe that they were able to keep a large majority of the crypto, based on their own self reporting.  About a month and a half later, they reopened as WEX and did a Bitfinex style socializing of the loss (about 40%-ish), and they issued tokens that they said would be reimbursed.

In the ensuing year, they have not been able to regenerate their previous trade volume and it appears that a lot of folks are trying to withdraw their funds, which seems to snowball, including WEX restricting withdrawals which continues to exacerbate the lack of confidence problem and the run on the exchange.  So accordingly confidence has been lost about whether WEX has enough money to cover all deposits, and surely they have been a whole hell-of-a lot less profitable after reopening because they have not been able to return to their former self (trade volume wise).   There is likely some other continued legal wrangling behind the scenes too because they USA Govt does not give up in terms of attempting to prosecute folks that they can find associated with the exchange, and that could be continuing to affect their operations and their expenses.. and may even motivate them to do an exit scam if they cannot pay everyone or to cover their expenses.

Watch their tactics

Usually what their baseless accusations are, are exactly what they do them self, they so clever


....."A bot is not too likely to engage in seriously engaging communications, and yeah it seems that mymenance paid shill is engaged in a kind of shit-stirring, that trolls do at opportune times to distract from any meaningful exchanges of thread-relevant information that we might be having."....


So you can usually pick your adversary before its begun

Wait till they hit RDS - Roger Derangement Syndrome - B-BOOOOOMMMM!!!  Cool Cool Cool  goes their little heads

Gets a few hundred million and turns into an egomaniac. He may be a big fish in this pond but the dude is a guppy on the global game of thrones. He doesn't seem to have any idea just how small he is compared to people with, not just wealth, but wealth that comes as a byproduct of real power. If he did, he wouldn't act like such an arrogant asshole all the time. I wish he would just fall into the ocean or something so I would never have to see his smug face again.

*edit* I know it's stupid. I should say something more substantive. But the way he speaks and acts bugs me more than any other human being alive. That perfect mix of autism and narcissism is like a cheese grater on my senses. Angry

Good recap. Thanks, it's all coming back to me now. This is the same BTC-e owners then. Still on the shady side.

I kind of doubt that they are specifically any more shady than any other people, and they have shown a decent amount of restraint and morals based on their having had opportunities to exit scam, but did not (at least not yet). 

Of course, BTC-e has been one of the oldest exchanges, and they have been accused of a lot of shady things including collaborating to allow stolen GOX coins to be dumped on their exchange, and also other kinds of money laundering accusations - but merely because the USA govt makes such accusations does not necessarily make them true.

It is true that from the beginning BTC-e was an exchange that allowed you to do almost no KYC and AML verifications, so they would let you open up and account and begin to exchange with a mere sign up that involved only an e-mail address and a password... so I doubt that the mere fact that they had been attempting to allow freedom in the use of the exchange and to attempt to stay out of the reach of governments would have been shady in and of itself - beyond governments and banks not liking it. 

Accordingly, there has always been some mystery concerning exact ownership and management and who works with them, but I doubt that mere attempts at anonymity means that they are engaged in shady operations.

Of course, there are a lot of aspirations to create decentralized exchanges, and it seem that BTC-e operators have shared a lot of the cypherpunk type aspirations - and maybe even have been pursued because of their ideologies - yet now they have a real business/creativity problem, and that is to figure out how to inspire a sufficient amount of confidence in order to not continue to experience a run on their bank (exchange)

The players are known, the cards have been dealt and he doubled down. So at this point he has no option but to play out his hand i.e. continue doing what he's doing. The crappy part is bcash's funding (life support?) comes from Ver's BTC reserves and Bitmain. Unfortunately both benefit when BTC goes up, so unless BTC crashes hard or trades sideways for a very long time, the funding to prop bcash will continue to pour in.

I think maybe you are thinking about it wrong. It's a 0 sum game. People think of bcash as relative to bitcoin not dollars. If bcash goes up marginally in dollar terms while bitcoin explodes in dollar terms no one calls that a bull market for bcash. So maybe bitcoin goes up giving him more money to pump into bcash, but at the same time bcash requires more and more funds in order to keep up with bitcoin if bitcoin has gone up.

To the extent that most alts had any merit at all it was as a way to scale crypto payments laterally to compensate for the inability of bitcoin to serve as a payment vehicle. With LN rolling out I would say a lot of them have no reason to exist. All things being equal then we should expect to see dominance rise. Of course, in the real world, all things are never equal.

The whole reason alts exploded goes back to the first LTC pump. People got it in their head that when bitcoin pumps, alts pump harder. But, just like any "known" trend, once it is known, it doesn't work anymore. Alts need to beat bitcoin on pumps consistently to make up for the risk of holding the shit. It isn't really happening on this pump and that may very well spell the end for 90% of the alts when all the dust settles.

I am sure you got the first lct pump wrong
1st  2012-01-23 $0,0027  to 2012-02-02 $0,0272 = 907.40%
2nd 2012-05-29 $0,0023 to 2012-07-31   $0,064 = 2682.60%
3rd  2013-01-04 $0,0699 to  2013-04-09 $4,8400 = 6824.17%
4th 2013-10-21 $1,7 to  2013-11-27$ 43,39 = 2452.35% your first LTC pump came on top of a 6824% rise ($43 is closing price, intraday high $48)
5th 2017-03-10 $3,75 to 2017-09-01 $86,04 = 2194.4%
2017-09-14 $41,58 to 2017-12-18 $358,34 = 761.80%

Dash
2014-04-10 $0,46 to 2014-05-25 $15,13 = 3189.13%

Ethereum
2015-08-06 $0,2075 to 2015-08-13 $1,83 = 781.92%

Ethereum classic
2016-07-25 $0,6 to 2016-08-06 $2,7 = 350%

Monero
2016-08-02 $1,49 to 2016-09-05 $13,96 = 836.91%

Neo
2017-04-24 $0,17 to 2017-06-19 $11,72 = 6794.11%

Cardano

Current price surge for Bitcoin is mainly based on ETF hype.

Alts are not included in a Bitcoin ETF.

But likely if it's a rules change that allows Bitcoin to get ETF approval, other alts will try to get ETF approval.

The SEC then becomes the gatekeeper of which alts rise with Bitcoin.

Which is why we won’t get a Bitcoin ETF.  SEC doesn’t want the headache of a Bcash lol ETF or a Ripple ETF.
