But every user already agreed with the risk. There is no regulation on polo, and insurance to give a guarantee for the users.
If you play on polo it seems like you're playing in the grey area. Too many unfair practices in polo. The possibility of polo will be turned to the scam site is always be there. This time all of the transaction gets blocked by him.
His DDOS looks very odd in my mind. We are doing a trade at our own risk.

I don't know what you are talking about. I didn't agree to any of this risk. I trusted them, and rightly so. I like what they provide, but LOTS of problems the last several weeks, and especially the last few days.

Poloniex is an American company, located in Wilmington, DE, and expressly regulated by the CFTC. They have been very vocal about being regulated by it.

That is not to say that magic curing of everyone's Polo issues will happen by tomorrow, but the company is UStateside, and regulated to some degree, and that is good for Americans, at least. (World Citizens from other countries, I speak not against you!!)

You did agree to the risk newbie.  Read the Poloniex terms of service.  Chock this up as a lesson in how the real world works.  I'm sure mommy and daddy will replace the birthday money you lost.  (...fucking millennials)

nikkisnowell,

Idiot 1. I'm older than you by 2 days.
Idiot 2. The terms don't specify what you are trying to infer.
Idiot 3. What you are inferring doesn't apply to me.
and #4. I have no parents

But go ahead and have fun proving any of what I said wrong.

Then I'll say: Good Show, NIKKI !!!! Do you feel better?

@Spoetnik

The sad part is that 95% of these newbie Alt Experts haven't been around here long enough to even know who BigVern is LOL



~BCX~

Yup.. which is why none of these guys commented after you i think.

I went to Polo yesterday to see how it was going and i was surprised to see the chat box busy.
It was as busy as when the 2013 crowd rolled in (early 2014'ish i think) and were on it.
I said something and it was almost scrolled right off the page instantly.
It was not like that for a long time though.

I also don't think 90% of the users on Polo knew who i was either.
Not that i blame them much.. i had not been over there for a year or two roughly.

It's irritating seeing such broken English in crypto too.
They say "exchanger" all the time which agitates the shit out of me  Angry
Lots of noobs i guess.. but if they don't know about history then they are doomed to repeat it.

oh and.. https://twitter.com/cryptsy?lang=en

Poloniex haters a simply a bunch of losers that had their first taste of how day trading is a losing proposition.  The trick is getting out before the dump.  Suddenly these idiots have found out how hard that is.  News Flash: When everyone else is dumping their shit coins, access to the system bogs down in order to do the same.  Let me guess what happened.  
     1. Joe Schmuck is in some shit coin scam like stellar or ripple.  
     2. Bottom begins to drop out.  
     3.  Joe tries to sell but with everyone else hitting poloniex it takes longer than normal as price falls.  
     4.  Joe chases the falling price until a sale order finally goes through.  
     5.  Woops, now there's a dead cat bounce and Joe's FOMO kicks in and he buys back in.  
     6.  Look out below, by the time he and everyone else realize it's a dead cat bounce, everyone begins chasing the fall again losing even more money.

That's not a problem with the trading platform, that's how being on the shitty end of day trading works.  Sucks to be you.

People are talking about problems in withdrawal and account verification. Nobody is talking about the price that coins trade at.
If people were worried about the price and volatility, they shouldn't be in crypto.  Smiley

Luckily those that have some sort of education with real investments have better strategies than that and never chase it down. To sum it up, big green candle = sell. Big red candle = buy.

You either take their word for it or don't.
Do you think they would deliberately lock out users to screw with markets ?
Such as turning it off and claiming their was a DDOS ?
I suspected Cryptsy of pulling shit like that and i have seen exchanges do it in fact.
Is Polo ?
I can't be sure..

I lean a little to them being over loaded lately though.
And trust me i have not been much of a fan of the Exchange either.
I am not afraid to criticize them  Cool

But i took a trip over there the other day and i was shocked at how busy it's become now a days.
So the idea they got DDOS'd is not all that far fetched.
And it does happen too.

They also had MOD's on chat dealing with non stop support issues.
So.. i suspect they are genuinely VERY busy.

I'm not worried as it looks like BigVern is going to lend his expertise in helping them work it out!


~BCX~




Interesting.

Vern's on the case guys relax & stay calm !

Polo ? Insider trading ? manipulation ? yeah probably.. what's new ?
I bet they all do though..  Shocked

Seriously, BigVern? Might as well bring in Josh Garza while they're at it.

i am worried about this issue too. although my holdings there are just lunch money compared to others here. i saw it happen 2 times when the alts crashed and i was of course waiting to buy the dip and everytime i cannot place an order and it was always DDoS attack at the right time. i saw it twice on the same day. im sure it happened a lot more when im not trading

I took all my BTC out of this site. They are criminals.

People lose 1000's of dollars.

They keep getting new members while their servers can not handle the traffic at all. For hours a day you can not buy or sell.

Ddos is bullshit.

Mods are idiots there.

There are certainly bad things behind the scenes, but if this is happening to Poloniex, things should be much worse with other exchanges.

Sorry all you polo haters but i kinda like them. They seem competent at the technology side of things and provide a valuable service to the community, even if it does pay them well Smiley

After all, how many of these outfits have bit the dust in the last few years, often taking your coin with them ?



This, their platform is very user friendly. If however allegations about insider trading and whatnot are true then obviously I will dump them, however I don't believe these allegations and there isn't any proof of it.

Google Poloniex lawsuit. Tons of insider trading, bots, other unfair practices. They're robbing us blind. Remember there are no regulations on these exchanges, so ignore this warning at your own risk. 
A site that with the volume of transactions that poloniex is having cannot but have some deficiciencies and even some law suits against them but the issue is that even with the myriad of court cases against them is not a confirmation that they are guilty without the proclamation of a court of competent jurisdiction and if their activities is not OK with me, I believe I am at liberty to try other exchange sites that meets my need.

It's hard to trust waves when all they've ever done it shitpost all over this forum. That would be like me seeing a nonsense post from a Yoshit signature campaigner and thinking it's a good idea to go and trade altcoins there. HINT: It's not.

I have withdrawals awaiting approval from over 72 hours ago. No response from support team. Will go out of my way to not use polo in the future - this is very annoying. They've got about 5 BTC worth of coins that I can't seem to move

COMPLAIN ABOUT POLONIEX HERE: This will put end to their sometimes questionable practices.
BBB website: https://www.bbb.org/consumer-complaints/file-a-complaint/get-started
If that does not help and IF there is actual fraud being committed...complain here: http://attorneygeneral.delaware.gov/fraud/

Also PLEASE spread this information, post it to all forums you can find, so that we can put a stop to this craziness.
