Your bitcoin, as long as you withdraw it, should still arrive. Good luck.

Unfortunately, you might have to write off your USD, or sell it at a massive loss. There is no way BTC-E has enough to pay out the USD.

I do not want withdraw "fake USD" from BTC-e... I will not touch that USD.

I just want, at least, those 140 BTC (total is 180 I had there for sure), withdraw still "pending" (i.е. not reached my wallet)...  :-/

Good luck for those that feel a bit lost now...  :-P

This is less worse than the "life with the government and banks"... lol
Unless one of the following is true, your BTC withdrawal will still go through.

  • The hacker hacked in BTC as well.
  • BTC-E used fractional reserve.
  • BTC-E had a cold wallet.
  • BTC-E wakes up and discovers the hack.

Yes, I'm telling the truth. It is all here registered in my btc-e account anyway...  ;-)


I strongly suggest you discard the USD by selling it, while it is still worth ~1/5 of its actual value. The 40 BTC that is missing has been converted to USD, most likely. You can still retrieve some of that value from it.


How so?!

I know you are telling the truth. I was reassuring you that the withdrawal will likely eventually go through.


I strongly suggest you discard the USD by selling it, while it is still worth ~1/5 of its actual value. The 40 BTC that is missing has been converted to USD, most likely. You can still retrieve some of that value from it.

Did you have a sell order open? That may be the reason your BTC is now missing. (since price spiked to 99, all sell orders must have been fulfilled).

I chickened out, ran away with my bitcoins while I still could.  Tongue

Smart and as a bonus you dont have to feel guilty about contributing to the death of another exchange just to make a fast buck...

Ditto here.  Canceled all my pending trades and withdrew.  2 confirms so far, I think I might have beat the clock.

I'm not a Coinbase fan -- I placed a buy order, they took the funds out of my account, then a week later the price went up and they canceled the buy and closed my account.  You've been warned.  Use a different exchange.

Btter hope this does not hit mainstream media...another BTC robbery will only shake the BTC tree more and eventually result in a collapse

You couldn't ask for a worse hack/theft than bitcoinica. If we aren't screwed then, we ain't screwed now.

I do believe MrWubbles is falsely taking credit. -retracted needless accusation-, however.

Nobody seems to have received payment back.

It looks like some hacker/scammer injected a huge amount of FAKE capital and bought the ACTUAL coins on the market.

I don't think a hack like this means they have access to the wallet, it just looks like they pumped a bunch of funny money USD into the market to make the transactions legit. I suspect the coins are giggity-gone at this point.

I do believe MrWubbles is falsely taking credit. SupaDupaJenkins may be the culprit, however.
It's possible it's false, but it seems convincing to me. Maybe I'm too quick to trust people when they say I can't trust them.

I'm monitoring the btc-e chat, and they seem to believe Mr. Wubbles is trolling.

He had obviously lied before about deleting the database. If Mr. Wubbles had the ability to do that, there would be a much easier way of "hurting the exchange" without hurting its users: withdraw the hot wallet directly.

I also find it hard to believe Wubbles would take more than 5 blocks to pay out.

I'm pretty sure that would 'hurt the users' too. Though it wouldn't lure others in.

This hurts the users more. Mr. Wubbles has, in this way, not been consistent. At least one of his statements was a lie.

He is. That doesn't mean he's not the hacker.

I agree. The hacker cannot do that, they can only buy BTC and withdraw them, most likely.

So as an experiment I deposited ~ 1 BTC sold if for USD, bought the BTC back using my USD balance and withdrew the 0.8 BTC.  Yeah i "lost" 0.2 BTC but the point was to test the liquidity of the BTC side.

This makes me very confident that my (and others) original theory was correct. The attacker ONLY increased the amount of USD.  Period.  Nothing else.  There also appears to be some (at least 0.8 BTC as of 2 minute ago) BTC left.  Likely the hacker hit some per account limit or got his account suspended preventing him for getting 100% of the BTC.  

So what that means if you will very soon see HYPER INFLATION on the BTC-E exchange.  Think of BTC as the "goods" in the BTC-E economy.  The BTC-E USD money supply has been massively inflated but the amount of "goods" (BTC) hasn't.  This is the recipe for massive inflation.  It was inflated by the hacker/counterfeiter.  Normally we think of central banks as the one doing inflating and generally that is true in major economies however any increase in money supply  (even illegal ones like counterfeiting) causes inflation  As people realize this they will dump USD for BTC driving the price higher and higher and higher.  $50, $100, $500, maybe even $25,000 USD per BTC.

There is SOME (who knows how much) real BTC on the exchange but anyone hanging on to USD "profits" is an idiot.  Selling USD for BTC at 50%, 70% even 90% loss is better than holding on to a hyperinflating currency.  You may say "the money supply is no longer inflating" while that is true, but price action often lags the actual increase in the money supply.  If the hacker increased the USD money supply by say a factor of 50x then eventually USD:BTC will rise by a factor of 50x.  Under that scenario BTC-E "USD" are worth only 1/50th of "real USD".    

How much did the hacker inflate the BTC-E USD money supply?  I don't have a clue ... but do you want to find out holding BTC or BTC-E "USD?"
