What are your thoughts about taking legal action?  I'm in.
Illegal actions are much more effective in this wild crypto world especially against relatives. Roll Eyes

calm down. This is no option.

Would this indicate anything?

Earlier today I looked at the wallet status page, and bunch of them were showing up as online with "Last Scan Times" ranging between 1/12 - 1/14.

I looked at it again just a few minutes ago, and I saw the same wallets online but now with Last Scan Times of  1/7 -1/8.

Both times, the site had "We are checking with different hosting now" banner.

edit: One of them the banner says "We are checking with different hosting now" while on the other it says ""We are checking with different hosting now ." (space and period at the end)

I agree with the previous comment about opening consecutive withdrawals of all coins. After everyone withdrew coins we as a community of coinsmarkets users could suggest an owner create a more professional exchange of shitcoins on the basis of coinsmarkets in which everyone who invested in the project could influence on developers, suggest proposals for improvements and so on. The current owner of cm could have 50% in the new exchange.

God you retards made everything last longer than necessary. Coinsmarkets would've been up and running days ago if it weren't for your whiny, millennial bullshit.

Seriously.. CoinsMarkets goes offline for 9 days without any warning, nor did they make any effort to communicate to their customers what was going on. Customers that have millions of dollars there. And you think the customers are at fault? What kind of logic is that? What is retarded is not expecting this type of outcome when taking an exchange offline for that amount of time with 0 communication to it's many customers.

Yeah, especially when you consider how little communication has been released by CoinsMarkets.  That is the real alarming indicator here.  They have a news section on their site that still works (sort of), no post since the 3rd, I believe.  They have an account here on this forum, no posts.  They have a Twitter account, no posts.  They have all our emails to send out an email blast, no emails.  They have many many different ways of communicating with all the customers, yet they fail to do so.  That is the most alarming sign that points to a bad ending here.

If this were just some simple server upgrade/fix, it would not be difficult to put out some clear explanation of what is going on.  The fact that they have been putting up these repetitive one sentence updates on their website that doesn't really load the home page half the time is ridiculous.  Now they're trying to make it seem like customers reporting them as fraud to their webhost (and rightfully so) has prevented them from coming back online.  Now they're "looking for new hosting".  Bottom line, if CoinsMarkets was communicating openly, clearly, in detail, with consistency, then i would be just fine with them working thru their "issues".  But when you look at this pattern of behavior in how they are not communicating and using excuses to buy more time, it doesn't look promising.


Also, this should be of no surprise to anyone, but I can confirm as a seasoned network engineer and software developer that there is beyond the shadow of a doubt extreme incompetence going on here from a technical perspective.  The fact that they were apparently using a single dedicated (or worse, a VPS) hosting service for an exchange website with tons of users and millions of dollars in cryptocurrencies clearly demonstrates they have no clue what they're doing--at best. Instead, they should've been running on some kind of cloud based, elastic/scalable server infrastructure, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, etc.  I suppose in hindsight the warning signs were evident, especially when you look at how horrible their frontend was put together.

They were great while they were working now not so much Smiley Yeah i have some money trapped there but bigger problem for me then the money i have there is that we dont have any decent exchange where we can sell our shitcoins,CM was easy to use and really fast withdrawal with low fees but all we are left now is cryptobridge and etherdelta but even those 2 dont really list new coins

I still can't believe it when I see people who blame angry customers for CoinsMarkets utter and complete incompetence.

I am brand new here, but I've been lurking for about a month now since I got into crypt. I honestly think that the speculation should stop. It's just paragraphs of useless data that I'm trying to sift through to get an answer about the status of CoinsMarkets.com.

If you have NEW information or a joke, I think those are welcome. Otherwise, you're just beating a dead horse and saying something that was probably said hundreds of times before you in the past 60+ pages of this forum.

If you don't like my suggestion, then by all means continue. I'm just suggesting something that is mentally healthy for you. I want to make people happy. That's my life mission. Crypto is just another way of doing that.

Stay positive guys.

Looking in the Chrome console, I found what's is DDOSing their site: is the ajax request that don't have a timeout control when a request return a error, after a erro the site make immediately another request without timeout control.

So for any server they try to setup the site will overload and consume all resources in minutes.

They need to change the ajax request and make an error control, when returning a code other than 200, impose a timeout on the next ajax request.

For example, hundred of this requests are mede per second when a RESOURCE ERROR are returned:

 GET https://coinsmarkets.com/getbalancebuy.php?coinid=5&name=Bitcoin&pairid=1 net :: ERR_INSUFFICIENT_RESOURCES

If possible, send this information to them: add error control and timeout on ajax function, to delay request on error.

And to get thinks worse, because the amount of request made in the loop, cloudflare immediately block the user, that explain why we get a cloudflare error page after few seconds, if they add a timeout on a error returned on ajax, they can stabilize the site.

Yes, that makes sense, if they are using InnoDB or MyISAM and the database are corrupted, take hours or days to rebuild the database. Every time the process are interrupted on server crash, the db must rebuild again.

But, they must immediately add a timeout to control ajax requests, this loop are killing them.

A pro-tip to recover a InnoDB database: start the mysql in read-only and use innodb_force_recovery>=1.

Dump de database using xtrabackup and then use xtrabackup --prepare to make a new database.

I prefer this approach for very large databases, because is impossible to rebuild indexes or to dump large database to sql file.

It is really taking them longer to come back into the business, but I still have firm belief that those people aren't scammers. I have had some amazing trades at their site, and everything was working fine then, but suddenly that "ECA" came into action, which almost made the investors greedy.

Because of huge demand of "ECA" the site became overloaded and slowly started giving errors. But, it was working even after those errors for 1-2 days. After, that the site went down with some messages like "Due to server overload, we are migrating to new servers, please bear with us". Those messages were really annoying at the beginning but gradually investors started believing that those messages are just fake hopes.

WOW... I can't believe there's yet another "excuse".

I think these guys are actually TOO STUPID to be deliberate scammers..

Someone needs to inform them though... that its ok to accept some assistance.

Biitdeep,

Interested in working with me to build something better and more trustworthy than CM?
Let me know if you are interested.

Thanks
