One thing is strange. Mostly, they are newcomers and people with little money they generally say that Poloniex is a scam. When I read the forums, I almost will not find anyone who would have blocked a larger amount of money.

I've been using the exchange since 2014 and I've been a level 2 verified user for some time, so FUCK YOU. Why don't you post with your real account instead of hiding behind that alt account with 3 posts?

6 days and counting with my tiny withdrawal "awaiting approval":






And now this... seems very convenient:







Hey man chill out. I have been trading on regulated stocks over ten years. Cryptos are my hobby for now. I do not trade big amounts via crypto exchanges. I still look for information about exchanges. Maybe you should learn about brokers in the past. As it was always, they are not your friends. They will first deal with those who trade in large volumes. 0.01 btc is a small amount in my point of view

flekkelek are you working for poloniex, you seems to defend them a lot, to answer one of your previous message i bought ether after with other coins i sold, i had a lot on poloniex on top of this.  the bitcoin were never available that day ,im not stupid , i even thought market was overcharged since it was taking so long , and after it showed it was cleared in 5 min but i never access it, explane this ? , and seriously recently the network speed improove since the newthing and even now its longer, but when you send money between wallet its a bit faster but still bitcoin takes time, but try to send between 2 exchange bitcoin to see how much longer it takes . I never had access to those funds and now its the FBI who will tell us the end of the story cause i just did an official complaint. as poloniex deleted all my ether deposit and probably manipulate the rest of the account , now its almost impossible to know what is real and not .
only thing i know is ether deposit erased plus a bitcoin transaction confirmed in 5 min tell me something smell fishy there. And i would have noticed 20 ether ...lol

Yeah, polo probably hacked the whole blockchain, just to cover their theft with a 5 minutes long transaction time. Crystal clear. Good luck with the FBI, just please keep us informed about the outcome, I'm very curious now.
And I do not work for polo, I'm defending the common sense, not them. Arguing about 5 minutes transaction time? Well, if you think it's not possible, you should leave the cryptoworld for good, because btc is meant to be fast, that is one of its goals.
We will see what the investigation will bring, if it will be once. If you are right, I hope you will get your funds back.

Beware of Poloniex,

They use bots to pump and dump coins and ponzi schemes,  at the moment the exchange is pumping DASH which is a ponzi scheme,  they create these big pumps, attract investors who short them, them keep them stuck for weeks.  If you dont know Poloniex is designed to suck in investors, use bots to create fake volume.
Poloniex isn't the scam it's shitcoins and the pump and dump groups. Their favorite exchange used to be Bittrex, they moved to Poloniex because ETH volume moved all the noobs to Poloniex. Unless they steal your coins they aren't scamming you, you're scamming yourself. Nobody is forcing you to trade shit coins or fall for pump and dumps. stop trying to get rich quick, and if you insist on falling for get rich quick ICO and shitcoins stop blaming others for your own decisions.

It seems to me that a blockchain analysis can check if indeed his transaction was confirmed to Polo's min confirm rate within 5 minutes. I've had them take an hour but also had them hit within 5 minutes so this can be checked. And yes Polo has been pulling some shady shit. I was told a week ago my case would be addressed "Soon" but have heard jack shit since then. But my issue is of very low importance, never the less.

It all comes down to the pending transactions in the blockchain, do some research.


Code:
<Hueristic> .pending
<Hueristic> meh whats the syntax?
<Hueristic> xmr .pending
<awfulcrawler[m]> .mempool
<monerobux> The current number of txs in Monero's mempool is 3
<Hueristic> btc mempool
<nioc> <CryptoSiD> why is it going up now  << spiderman
<Hueristic> Thanks AC
<awfulcrawler[m]> .btcmempool
<grubles> why montero go up
<monerobux> The current number of txs in Bitcoin's mempool is 2824

i undertsnd they stay pending a while depending traffic but how could it mark clear after 5 min if it was only available after 2 hours, thats the part i dont understand and probably my only proof against poloniex, my account look so to addup that im starting to think im crazy , but damm i would have known if i got 20 ether extra . This is the only thing keeping me sane as i did multiple traded on mutliple exchanges and everytime i sent them coin even ether and dash, it took some times to be availalable bitcoin is the worst. But with the set up they did i was spending them 33 min after sending it from another exchange . I know i was never able to do that after trying and trying , we have to wait for them. So how could that have happened that day... im so desperate about all this , i dont know what to do , are they that fn good ...

Maybe you got hacked? goto history and look up your eth transaction history. Do that by going to eth exchange chart scoll to bottom and click my transactions tab next to market trades.

Seriously it sounds to me like you just are not able to see what happened. If you need this stuff done for you then I'll do it for 2 XMR. I'm not wasting my time on this any longer.

jamesweb6 I get the impression you played a little too much casino with your funds. I have done this on a smaller scale, and only with BTC, but still, when I had many margin positions opened, betting on upswings and downswings at the same time, it became too much. I feel like you weren't really in control of what you were doing, and that you lost track of your gains and losses. I've not done much trading on Poloniex but I find their interface quite confusing so that might not help.

It sounds like a good opinion, thanks for that. If people think that crypto exchanges and their users are all on the same boat, they will be probably overwhelmingly disappointed

Poloniex service is very bad, they are very slow service,
I suffered  loss  $ 1,500 due to poor poloniex service

this is crazy 27 days my withdrawal status complete; Error (can not be canceled).
He just responded after 27 days,




and they responded, after I got angry on official twitter




you imagine, you wait 27 days to withdraw your assets.
this is crypto currency, fluctuating price
time is very important for traders, and your support ticket is ignored, their communication to customers is very bad because slow in reply.

Poloniex is not a scam nor ponzi, just a shitty trading site. Takes years for any of their support to return on mails and answer on queries plus non-professional way in answering if they ever answer you.

I suspect something big has happen to them and they are not telling: possibly being investigated like Btc-e.
I have been with them for years but now I have lost all trust.
