What happened::
It's sad that my first message on this forum is a scam report, but alas  Sad
On Jan 15th I sent 10.1 ETH to the automated address generated by my ETH wallet on Yobit.
(addr: 0x7b5019c816a4cac43529bac1ac63e49590bbf67e)

They were never credited. Subsequently, just to try if it was a general delay with Yobit, I sent a small transaction - 0.1 ETH and the wallet generated another address. This time the funds arrived timely.

Of course both times I copy-pasted the wallet address and checked it multiple times.

I contacted support and a week later I received a 1-liner: "check your transaction". Really? Do you think I didn't? I'm posting this here so that the whole world can check.

What's happening with Yobit? Are they hoarding all the ETH deposit above a certain threshold?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

Do you please have a screenshot of YoBit generating this payment address?

I mean, we can see that the 10.1 Eth clearly reached that address, and was never withdrawn. It's still sitting there.

It seems very possible that you have made an error here.

Don't misunderstand me....I think YoBit appear scammy as hell, but that is just my opinion, and I don't see proof here.

I do not use this exchange at all. I've heard a hundred times that there is a very bad support service and very often tokens are stuck. After the ICO, the SOMA tokens were listed for this exchange, but in the end they were all stuck there and the support service did not respond within a few months. The SOMA team began to refund tokens for those who lost them on this exchange. You can see for yourself https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2129958.msg29700757#msg29700757

Where did you send the other 0.1 ETH? There is only one 10.1 ETH deposit into that address and nothing else. If I interpreted it correctly then you copy pasted the same address and sent it, and yobit apparently approved the second transaction?

Maybe just clarify your situation a bit more and provide some proof.

But in this case, you have absolutely 0 proof that the address you're talking about here is one of yobit's, since you've already generated a new deposit address. Unfortunately I'd have to say that if you did deposit to the right address, and you're sure that everything is in order, your chances of getting back your funds are not high. Yobit is reluctant to any sort of in depth analysis to help their customers.

Thanks everyone for your replies.

No, I didn't take a screenshot of the first generated address - something wise indeed to do with a sizeable transaction, but it never occurred to me.

When I decided to send another 0.1 transaction, my rationale for it was - if this small transaction also is not credited, then their ETH network is just congested. But unfortunately, a new ETH address was generated as soon as I opened the wallet again.

The new transaction (the one that succeeded), just for reference, is this one:
0x791e76c8f10d6592d17686529349b358a73b7474e39ce5cbdae25b8174971403

Now - could I have made an error? Possible (although unlikely, I obviously copy/paste addresses when making transactions).

But what are the chances that I would randomly select a newly created, valid, never used ETH address?

In any case, I think my request makes sense: YoBit has the private key for the generated addresses, so I'm just asking that they check whether the address I sent the ETH to matches their private key.

But they have never agreed to do that.

Oh yes... multiple times, and following a suggestion found on another thread, I even sent them a support ticket in russian (using google translate).

No reply so far except from the very first ticket to which they replied "check your transaction".

Thanks for your wishes though :-)

This is very bad, try to wait a little longer I had the case of getting my money stuck in poloniex for 3 weeks and no answers.
