A VC Fund performing an Audit - that doesn't seem right...

Is the rumour true that Firestart are aiming to buy Bitstamp?

From what I read this particular due diligence was being performed by Firestart on behalf of a 3rd party. This third (undisclosed party) MIGHT be the potential end buyer.

Due diligence typically is not limited to just a financial audit. You also do legal, operational audits, etc. when you want to buy a business. In case of the recent wallet consolidation the auditors might simply want a confirmation that Bitstamp controlled the coins. Based on the findings of the due diligence the current owners will sign reps and warranties of the seller. The current owners may stay with Bitstamp if earn outs are good.

There is nothing wrong with selling businesses. It is a normal thing. Nothing to be worrying about, unless the buyer is Mark Karpeles.

There is a lot to worry about, after Gox scandal they announced they would make an audit. But what they delivered was a joke. It is not an audit, at least not one expected for such case., it is just for the fool.

Due diligence was probably carried out. Part of the due diligence was the audit. The audit was made. You will never see the audit. Why do you call it a joke since you never saw it? I doubt the audit will ever be publicized.

Bitstamp may have very well been already conditionally aquired by the third party. The condition was that a certain amount of coins had to be controlled by Bitstamp. Consolidation was made. Controlling of coins was proved (condition for selling / acquiring the business at an agreed price therefore fulfiled). Payment for selling a stake in Bitstamp was made to Bitstamp's former owners. Nothing to worry about. Just wait for an official confirmation / denial that Bitstamp was sold.

That's a joke exactly 'cause i never saw it and no reputable third party was involved. All companies do private audits like they did, actualy on an everyday basis, that is not what they announced. The audit they announced was not delivered. They announced a public audit for transparecy purposes due to the gox case(it on their website), it was not delivered.

Perhaps the auditing has not finished yet.

They announced a public audit for transparecy purposes due to the gox case(it on their website), it was not delivered.

If the audit is made in connection to Gox's case, then maybe Mark Karpeles informed on time all exchanges about to which addresses the goxed coins were sent - then there would be a hope that some of the thieves will get caught, and maybe Bitstamp discovered that some of the ''disappeared / unaccounted for / goxed'' coins were sold on their exchange and decided to investigate further. We just don't know.

If this is the case (I highly doubt it - I just speculate here), the audit will not be delivered soon. No need to be angry at Bitstamp or at the third unnamed party - they might want to calculate the legal risk of purchasing Bitstamp in view of recent developments at Gox.

I just got an email from "info@bitstamp.net" saying that trading will be suspended for 24 hours. It reads:

Quote
"Hello everyone! and apologize for the delays and lack of communication are currently working on some design improvements / server. During the week we will update this page with the status of the project, given the final stage where we are.

Steps for Tuesday March 4, 2014:

Please check if your balance in this file is correct (Same your wallet balance) .. And replay asap if you see any problem."

And then there's a PDF file attached.. which I will not open. I don't believe this email to be legit.. it has several spelling mistakes and why would Bitstamp ever need me to confirm my balance. Seems very fishy.

It's not legit, do not open the attachment, it's a phishing attempt.

Yeah, I didn't open it. I got another email from the same smtp address (checked it correctly this time), but with another headline asking me to hurry up. Reported it as spam and deleted it. Pathetic losers.. earn money honestly instead of hurting others.

Has anyone had any luck in building a streaming orderbook using the unofficial pusher stream listed here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=38711.msg3382580#msg3382580 ?

I am attempting to do this, and planned to download the full order book via the REST API, and then update it with the pusher events.  However, the issue I have not been able to solve is that the REST API full orderbook does not return order IDs, and the pusher stream updates bids and asks using order ideas, and does not give standalone deltas of change when changing an order.  If the pusher events were just add and cancel orders, it would be possible to just add and subtract the appropriate amounts from the appropriate levels in the book. 

However, when an order_changed event is received, the pusher stream does not contain information on what the previous amount of the order was, so if the new order is say, bid 100 @ $1000, there is no way to know if the old order was bid 50 @ 1000$, and the appropriate action is to add quantity 50 to the bids at $1000, or of the old order was big 500 @ 1000$, and the appropriate action is to subtract 450 from the bids @ 1000$.  Without an actual delta on order change events, I don't see how it is possible to get an accurate representation of the book.

This doesn't even take into account all of the out-of-sequence message that come through on pusher.

Bitcoinwisdom has the first 15 levels of depth on their site, and I'm not sure if they do it solely via pusher because they have been running pusher so long that they have most orders cached from the original placement of the order, or if they have solved this some other way.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.  Surely someone has been able to achieve this.

I have a payment sent from bitstamp on March 5th, Today it is March 10th.
Still I do not see it from my bank. I know bitstamp set value date to their payment. But it is too long this time. Do you think it is normal?
Is there anyway to chase the payment?

Alright, I see. If that's the case, that you submitted all the required info and your withdrawal still isn't getting through, and there's not additional details you aren't mentioning, like MissPiggy above who thought it was a clever idea to sign up with a fake name, t

Oh I really hope your personal details were leaked by Gox Smiley

Not that you'd admit it now of course  Cool

Hope your identity gets hijacked

To follow up my post from a few pages ago, finally my withdrawal was processed and went through. Unfortunately for me the USD lost almost 3% against the Euro in the meantime. However, after the lengthy KYC procedure went through, the withdrawal/transfer took as little time as usual. One day to change from "in process" to "finished", another day to appear on my balance statement. So generally, bitstamp appears to work.

Thanks for keeping us updated. There are some "complaints" in this threads I simply can't take serious, but after I understood what went on in your case, I was waiting to hear how it will be resolved. Glad to hear it worked out in the end, even though with a delay.

(Sorry for my initial reaction 2 or 3 pages ago, by the way. I thought your complaint was that you refuse to answer the additional KYC questions, but that was my mistake in not reading your original post careful enough.)

Not sure which Bitcoin wallet to use? I can highly recommend Electrum.
Electrum is an open-source lightweight client: user friendly, extremely fast, and one of the safest ways to store and use your bitcoins.
Executables are available on the Electrum homepage, so you can get a Bitcoin wallet up and running on your own computer in a few minutes.

In my opinion, the last thing bitstamp is interested in, would be to dry out the incoming stream of fiat. So if incoming transfers are not showing, I assume there is some genuine issue with the particular transfer. Missing/wrong reference number, currency conversion issue (the problems posted on reddit appear to be non-SEPA), whatever. The customer support of bitstamp is not exactly speedy at the moment, but based on my recent experience, things will be sorted in the end. bitstamp might be not exactly an ISO9001 enterprise yet, but so far they seem to be honest. That's worth a lot in this particular environment.

I wasn't implying dishonesty, but if funds are being delayed due to an issue with the their bank (new user volume or extra KYC checks) it would be nice to know. Its a sensitive area right now.

The problem with these recent additional kyc requests is the lack of preemptive communication. I was sending in a decent volume for months with my already verified account without an issue or any request from them, then suddenly one of my wires didn't show up for a week and they started the additional kyc procedure stating I crossed some volume thresold (actually my volumes toward them in the last couple of months were pretty low), and only after I opened a support ticket.

I'm fine with providing all the information needed and already answered but I would have organized differently had they notified me beforehand. Stuck with zero funds now and it's costing me money, weekend coming and unable to wire elsewhere, too.

You should ask for all the documentation upfront when verifing accounts for the first time. Or at least warn the customer that you will require more if one crosses a certain thresold (and be precise about how much during what period...).
