Founded by HDR Global Trading Limited (which in turn was founded by former bankers Arthur Hayes, Samuel Reed and Ben Delo) in 2014, BitMEX is a trading platform operating around the world and registered in the Seychelles.
Meaning Bitcoin Mercantile Exchange, BitMEX is one of the largest Bitcoin trading platforms currently operating, with a daily trading volume of over 35,000 BTC and over 540,000 accesses monthly and a trading history of over $34 billion worth of Bitcoin since its inception.

Unlike many other trading exchanges, BitMEX only accepts deposits through Bitcoin, which can then be used to purchase a variety of other cryptocurrencies. BitMEX specialises in sophisticated financial operations such as margin trading, which is trading with leverage. Like many of the exchanges that operate through cryptocurrencies, BitMEX is currently unregulated in any jurisdiction.

How to Sign Up to BitMEX

In order to create an account on BitMEX, users first have to register with the website. Registration only requires an email address, the email address must be a genuine address as users will receive an email to confirm registration in order to verify the account. Once users are registered, there are no trading limits. Traders must be at least 18 years of age to sign up.
https://preview.redd.it/0v13qoil3cc41.jpg?width=808&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e6134bc089c4e352dce10d754dc84ff11a4c7994
However, it should be noted that BitMEX does not accept any US-based traders and will use IP checks to verify that users are not in the US. While some US users have bypassed this with the use of a VPN, it is not recommended that US individuals sign up to the BitMEX service, especially given the fact that alternative exchanges are available to service US customers that function within the US legal framework.
How to Use BitMEX
BitMEX allows users to trade cryptocurrencies against a number of fiat currencies, namely the US Dollar, the Japanese Yen and the Chinese Yuan. BitMEX allows users to trade a number of different cryptocurrencies, namely Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, Monero, Ripple, Tezos and Zcash.
The trading platform on BitMEX is very intuitive and easy to use for those familiar with similar markets. However, it is not for the beginner. The interface does look a little dated when compared to newer exchanges like Binance and Kucoin’s.
Once users have signed up to the platform, they should click on Trade, and all the trading instruments will be displayed beneath.
Clicking on the particular instrument opens the orderbook, recent trades, and the order slip on the left. The order book shows three columns – the bid value for the underlying asset, the quantity of the order, and the total USD value of all orders, both short and long.
The widgets on the trading platform can be changed according to the user’s viewing preferences, allowing users to have full control on what is displayed. It also has a built in feature that provides for TradingView charting. This offers a wide range of charting tool and is considered to be an improvement on many of the offering available from many of its competitors.
https://preview.redd.it/fabg1nxo3cc41.jpg?width=808&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6d939889c3eac15ab1e78ec37a8ccd13fc5e0573
Once trades are made, all orders can be easily viewed in the trading platform interface. There are tabs where users can select their Active Orders, see the Stops that are in place, check the Orders Filled (total or partially) and the trade history. On the Active Orders and Stops tabs, traders can cancel any order, by clicking the “Cancel” button. Users also see all currently open positions, with an analysis if it is in the black or red.
BitMEX uses a method called auto-deleveraging which BitMEX uses to ensure that liquidated positions are able to be closed even in a volatile market. Auto-deleveraging means that if a position bankrupts without available liquidity, the positive side of the position deleverages, in order of profitability and leverage, the highest leveraged position first in queue. Traders are always shown where they sit in the auto-deleveraging queue, if such is needed.
Although the BitMEX platform is optimized for mobile, it only has an Android app (which is not official). There is no iOS app available at present. However, it is recommended that users use it on the desktop if possible.
BitMEX offers a variety of order types for users:
  • Limit Order (the order is fulfilled if the given price is achieved);
  • Market Order (the order is executed at current market price);
  • Stop Limit Order (like a stop order, but allows users to set the price of the Order once the Stop Price is triggered);
  • Stop Market Order (this is a stop order that does not enter the order book, remain unseen until the market reaches the trigger);
  • Trailing Stop Order (it is similar to a Stop Market order, but here users set a trailing value that is used to place the market order);
  • Take Profit Limit Order (this can be used, similarly to a Stop Order, to set a target price on a position. In this case, it is in respect of making gains, rather than cutting losses);
  • Take Profit Market Order (same as the previous type, but in this case, the order triggered will be a market order, and not a limit one)
The exchange offers margin trading in all of the cryptocurrencies displayed on the website. It also offers to trade with futures and derivatives – swaps.

Futures and Swaps

A futures contract is an agreement to buy or sell a given asset in the future at a predetermined price. On BitMEX, users can leverage up to 100x on certain contracts.
Perpetual swaps are similar to futures, except that there is no expiry date for them and no settlement. Additionally, they trade close to the underlying reference Index Price, unlike futures, which may diverge substantially from the Index Price.
BitMEX also offers Binary series contracts, which are prediction-based contracts which can only settle at either 0 or 100. In essence, the Binary series contracts are a more complicated way of making a bet on a given event.
The only Binary series betting instrument currently available is related to the next 1mb block on the Bitcoin blockchain. Binary series contracts are traded with no leverage, a 0% maker fee, a 0.25% taker fee and 0.25% settlement fee.

Bitmex Leverage

BitMEX allows its traders to leverage their position on the platform. Leverage is the ability to place orders that are bigger than the users’ existing balance. This could lead to a higher profit in comparison when placing an order with only the wallet balance. Trading in such conditions is called “Margin Trading.”
There are two types of Margin Trading: Isolated and Cross-Margin. The former allows the user to select the amount of money in their wallet that should be used to hold their position after an order is placed. However, the latter provides that all of the money in the users’ wallet can be used to hold their position, and therefore should be treated with extreme caution.
https://preview.redd.it/eg4qk9qr3cc41.jpg?width=808&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c3ca8cdf654330ce53e8138d774e72155acf0e7e
The BitMEX platform allows users to set their leverage level by using the leverage slider. A maximum leverage of 1:100 is available (on Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash). This is quite a high level of leverage for cryptocurrencies, with the average offered by other exchanges rarely exceeding 1:20.

BitMEX Fees

For traditional futures trading, BitMEX has a straightforward fee schedule. As noted, in terms of leverage offered, BitMEX offers up to 100% leverage, with the amount off leverage varying from product to product.
However, it should be noted that trading at the highest leverages is sophisticated and is intended for professional investors that are familiar with speculative trading. The fees and leverage are as follows:
https://preview.redd.it/wvhiepht3cc41.jpg?width=730&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=0617eb894c13d3870211a01d51af98561907cb99

https://preview.redd.it/qhi8izcu3cc41.jpg?width=730&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=09da4efe1de4214b0b5b9c7501aba5320e846b4c
However, there are additional fees for hidden / iceberg orders. A hidden order pays the taker fee until the entire hidden quantity is completely executed. Then, the order will become normal, and the user will receive the maker rebate for the non-hidden amount.

Deposits and Withdrawals

BitMEX does not charge fees on deposits or withdrawals. However, when withdrawing Bitcoin, the minimum Network fee is based on blockchain load. The only costs therefore are those of the banks or the cryptocurrency networks.
As noted previously, BitMEX only accepts deposits in Bitcoin and therefore Bitcoin serves as collateral on trading contracts, regardless of whether or not the trade involves Bitcoin.
The minimum deposit is 0.001 BTC. There are no limits on withdrawals, but withdrawals can also be in Bitcoin only. To make a withdrawal, all that users need to do is insert the amount to withdraw and the wallet address to complete the transfer.
https://preview.redd.it/xj1kbuew3cc41.jpg?width=808&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=68056f2247001c63e89c880cfbb75b2f3616e8fe
Deposits can be made 24/7 but withdrawals are processed by hand at a recurring time once per day. The hand processed withdrawals are intended to increase the security levels of users’ funds by providing extra time (and email notice) to cancel any fraudulent withdrawal requests, as well as bypassing the use of automated systems & hot wallets which may be more prone to compromise.

Supported Currencies

BitMEX operates as a crypto to crypto exchange and makes use of a Bitcoin-in/Bitcoin-out structure. Therefore, platform users are currently unable to use fiat currencies for any payments or transfers, however, a plus side of this is that there are no limits for trading and the exchange incorporates trading pairs linked to the US Dollar (XBT), Japanese Yen (XBJ), and Chinese Yuan (XBC).
BitMEX supports the following cryptocurrencies:
  • Bitcoin (XBT)
  • Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
  • Ethereum (ETH)
  • Ethereum Classic (ETC)
  • Litecoin (LTC)
  • Ripple Token (XRP)
  • Monero (XMR)
  • Dash (DASH)
  • Zcash (ZEC)
  • Cardano (ADA)
  • Tron (TRX)
  • EOS Token (EOS)
BitMEX also offers leverage options on the following coins:
  • 5x: Zcash (ZEC)
  • 20x : Ripple (XRP),Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Cardano (ADA), EOS Token (EOS), Tron (TRX)
  • 25x: Monero (XMR)
  • 33x: Litecoin (LTC)
  • 50x: Ethereum (ETH)
  • 100x: Bitcoin (XBT), Bitcoin / Yen (XBJ), Bitcoin / Yuan (XBC)

Trading Technologies International Partnership

HDR Global Trading, the company which owns BitMEX, has recently announced a partnership with Trading Technologies International, Inc. (TT), a leading international high-performance trading software provider.
The TT platform is designed specifically for professional traders, brokers, and market-access providers, and incorporates a wide variety of trading tools and analytical indicators that allow even the most advanced traders to customize the software to suit their unique trading styles. The TT platform also provides traders with global market access and trade execution through its privately managed infrastructure and the partnership will see BitMEX users gaining access to the trading tools on all BitMEX products, including the popular XBT/USD Perpetual Swap pairing.
https://preview.redd.it/qcqunaby3cc41.png?width=672&format=png&auto=webp&s=b77b45ac2b44a9af30a4985e3d9dbafc9bbdb77c

The BitMEX Insurance Fund

The ability to trade on leverage is one of the exchange’s main selling points and offering leverage and providing the opportunity for traders to trade against each other may result in a situation where the winners do not receive all of their expected profits. As a result of the amounts of leverage involved, it’s possible that the losers may not have enough margin in their positions to pay the winners.
Traditional exchanges like the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) offset this problem by utilizing multiple layers of protection and cryptocurrency trading platforms offering leverage cannot currently match the levels of protection provided to winning traders.
In addition, cryptocurrency exchanges offering leveraged trades propose a capped downside and unlimited upside on a highly volatile asset with the caveat being that on occasion, there may not be enough funds in the system to pay out the winners.
To help solve this problem, BitMEX has developed an insurance fund system, and when a trader has an open leveraged position, their position is forcefully closed or liquidated when their maintenance margin is too low.
Here, a trader’s profit and loss does not reflect the actual price their position was closed on the market, and with BitMEX when a trader is liquidated, their equity associated with the position drops down to zero.
In the following example, the trader has taken a 100x long position. In the event that the mark price of Bitcoin falls to $3,980 (by 0.5%), then the position gets liquidated with the 100 Bitcoin position needing to be sold on the market.
This means that it does not matter what price this trade executes at, namely if it’s $3,995 or $3,000, as from the view of the liquidated trader, regardless of the price, they lose all the equity they had in their position, and lose the entire one Bitcoin.
https://preview.redd.it/wel3rka04cc41.png?width=669&format=png&auto=webp&s=3f93dac2d3b40aa842d281384113d2e26f25947e
Assuming there is a fully liquid market, the bid/ask spread should be tighter than the maintenance margin. Here, liquidations manifest as contributions to the insurance fund (e.g. if the maintenance margin is 50bps, but the market is 1bp wide), and the insurance fund should rise by close to the same amount as the maintenance margin when a position is liquidated. In this scenario, as long as healthy liquid markets persist, the insurance fund should continue its steady growth.
The following graphs further illustrate the example, and in the first chart, market conditions are healthy with a narrow bid/ask spread (just $2) at the time of liquidation. Here, the closing trade occurs at a higher price than the bankruptcy price (the price where the margin balance is zero) and the insurance fund benefits.
Illustrative example of an insurance contribution – Long 100x with 1 BTC collateral
https://preview.redd.it/is89ep924cc41.png?width=699&format=png&auto=webp&s=f0419c68fe88703e594c121b5b742c963c7e2229
(Note: The above illustration is based on opening a 100x long position at $4,000 per BTC and 1 Bitcoin of collateral. The illustration is an oversimplification and ignores factors such as fees and other adjustments.
The bid and offer prices represent the state of the order book at the time of liquidation. The closing trade price is $3,978, representing $1 of slippage compared to the $3,979 bid price at the time of liquidation.)
The second chart shows a wide bid/ask spread at the time of liquidation, here, the closing trade takes place at a lower price than the bankruptcy price, and the insurance fund is used to make sure that winning traders receive their expected profits.
This works to stabilize the potential for returns as there is no guarantee that healthy market conditions can continue, especially during periods of heightened price volatility. During these periods, it’s actually possible that the insurance fund can be used up than it is built up.
Illustrative example of an insurance depletion – Long 100x with 1 BTC collateral
https://preview.redd.it/vb4mj3n54cc41.png?width=707&format=png&auto=webp&s=0c63b7c99ae1c114d8e3b947fb490e9144dfe61b
(Notes: The above illustration is based on opening a 100x long position at $4,000 per BTC and 1 Bitcoin of collateral. The illustration is an oversimplification and ignores factors such as fees and other adjustments.
The bid and offer prices represent the state of the order book at the time of liquidation. The closing trade price is $3,800, representing $20 of slippage compared to the $3,820 bid price at the time of liquidation.)
The exchange declared in February 2019, that the BitMEX insurance fund retained close to 21,000 Bitcoin (around $70 million based on Bitcoin spot prices at the time).
This figure represents just 0.007% of BitMEX’s notional annual trading volume, which has been quoted as being approximately $1 trillion. This is higher than the insurance funds as a proportion of trading volume of the CME, and therefore, winning traders on BitMEX are exposed to much larger risks than CME traders as:
  • BitMEX does not have clearing members with large balance sheets and traders are directly exposed to each other.
  • BitMEX does not demand payments from traders with negative account balances.
  • The underlying instruments on BitMEX are more volatile than the more traditional instruments available on CME.
Therefore, with the insurance fund remaining capitalized, the system effectively with participants who get liquidated paying for liquidations, or a losers pay for losers mechanism.
This system may appear controversial as first, though some may argue that there is a degree of uniformity to it. It’s also worth noting that the exchange also makes use of Auto Deleveraging which means that on occasion, leveraged positions in profit can still be reduced during certain time periods if a liquidated order cannot be executed in the market.
More adventurous traders should note that while the insurance fund holds 21,000 Bitcoin, worth approximately 0.1% of the total Bitcoin supply, BitMEX still doesn’t offer the same level of guarantees to winning traders that are provided by more traditional leveraged trading platforms.
Given the inherent volatility of the cryptocurrency market, there remains some possibility that the fund gets drained down to zero despite its current size. This may result in more successful traders lacking confidence in the platform and choosing to limit their exposure in the event of BitMEX being unable to compensate winning traders.

How suitable is BitMEX for Beginners?

BitMEX generates high Bitcoin trading levels, and also attracts good levels of volume across other crypto-to-crypto transfers. This helps to maintain a buzz around the exchange, and BitMEX also employs relatively low trading fees, and is available round the world (except to US inhabitants).
This helps to attract the attention of people new to the process of trading on leverage and when getting started on the platform there are 5 main navigation Tabs to get used to:
  • **Trade:**The trading dashboard of BitMEX. This tab allows you to select your preferred trading instrument, and choose leverage, as well as place and cancel orders. You can also see your position information and view key information in the contract details.
  • **Account:**Here, all your account information is displayed including available Bitcoin margin balances, deposits and withdrawals, and trade history.
  • **Contracts:**This tab covers further instrument information including funding history, contract sizes; leverage offered expiry, underlying reference Price Index data, and other key features.
  • **References:**This resource centre allows you to learn about futures, perpetual contracts, position marking, and liquidation.
  • **API:**From here you can set up an API connection with BitMEX, and utilize the REST API and WebSocket API.
BitMEX also employs 24/7 customer support and the team can also be contacted on their Twitter and Reddit accounts.
In addition, BitMEX provides a variety of educational resources including an FAQ section, Futures guides, Perpetual Contracts guides, and further resources in the “References” account tab.
For users looking for more in depth analysis, the BitMEX blog produces high level descriptions of a number of subjects and has garnered a good reputation among the cryptocurrency community.
Most importantly, the exchange also maintains a testnet platform, built on top of testnet Bitcoin, which allows anyone to try out programs and strategies before moving on to the live exchange.
This is crucial as despite the wealth of resources available, BitMEX is not really suitable for beginners, and margin trading, futures contracts and swaps are best left to experienced, professional or institutional traders.
Margin trading and choosing to engage in leveraged activity are risky processes and even more advanced traders can describe the process as a high risk and high reward “game”. New entrants to the sector should spend a considerable amount of time learning about margin trading and testing out strategies before considering whether to open a live account.

Is BitMEX Safe?

BitMEX is widely considered to have strong levels of security. The platform uses multi-signature deposits and withdrawal schemes which can only be used by BitMEX partners. BitMEX also utilises Amazon Web Services to protect the servers with text messages and two-factor authentication, as well as hardware tokens.
BitMEX also has a system for risk checks, which requires that the sum of all account holdings on the website must be zero. If it’s not, all trading is immediately halted. As noted previously, withdrawals are all individually hand-checked by employees, and private keys are never stored in the cloud. Deposit addresses are externally verified to make sure that they contain matching keys. If they do not, there is an immediate system shutdown.
https://preview.redd.it/t04qs3484cc41.jpg?width=808&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a3b106cbc9116713dcdd5e908c00b555fd704ee6
In addition, the BitMEX trading platform is written in kdb+, a database and toolset popular amongst major banks in high frequency trading applications. The BitMEX engine appears to be faster and more reliable than some of its competitors, such as Poloniex and Bittrex.
They have email notifications, and PGP encryption is used for all communication.
The exchange hasn’t been hacked in the past.

How Secure is the platform?

As previously mentioned, BitMEX is considered to be a safe exchange and incorporates a number of security protocols that are becoming standard among the sector’s leading exchanges. In addition to making use of Amazon Web Services’ cloud security, all the exchange’s systems can only be accessed after passing through multiple forms of authentication, and individual systems are only able to communicate with each other across approved and monitored channels.
Communication is also further secured as the exchange provides optional PGP encryption for all automated emails, and users can insert their PGP public key into the form inside their accounts.
Once set up, BitMEX will encrypt and sign all the automated emails sent by you or to your account by the [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) email address. Users can also initiate secure conversations with the support team by using the email address and public key on the Technical Contact, and the team have made their automated system’s PGP key available for verification in their Security Section.
The platform’s trading engine is written in kdb+, a database and toolset used by leading financial institutions in high-frequency trading applications, and the speed and reliability of the engine is also used to perform a full risk check after every order placement, trade, settlement, deposit, and withdrawal.
All accounts in the system must consistently sum to zero, and if this does not happen then trading on the platform is immediately halted for all users.
With regards to wallet security, BitMEX makes use of a multisignature deposit and withdrawal scheme, and all exchange addresses are multisignature by default with all storage being kept offline. Private keys are not stored on any cloud servers and deep cold storage is used for the majority of funds.
Furthermore, all deposit addresses sent by the BitMEX system are verified by an external service that works to ensure that they contain the keys controlled by the founders, and in the event that the public keys differ, the system is immediately shut down and trading halted. The exchange’s security practices also see that every withdrawal is audited by hand by a minimum of two employees before being sent out.

BitMEX Customer Support

The trading platform has a 24/7 support on multiple channels, including email, ticket systems and social media. The typical response time from the customer support team is about one hour, and feedback on the customer support generally suggest that the customer service responses are helpful and are not restricted to automated responses.
https://preview.redd.it/8k81zl0a4cc41.jpg?width=808&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e30e5b7ca93d2931f49e2dc84025f2fda386eab1
The BitMEX also offers a knowledge base and FAQs which, although they are not necessarily always helpful, may assist and direct users towards the necessary channels to obtain assistance.
BitMEX also offers trading guides which can be accessed here

Conclusion

There would appear to be few complaints online about BitMEX, with most issues relating to technical matters or about the complexities of using the website. Older complaints also appeared to include issues relating to low liquidity, but this no longer appears to be an issue.
BitMEX is clearly not a platform that is not intended for the amateur investor. The interface is complex and therefore it can be very difficult for users to get used to the platform and to even navigate the website.
However, the platform does provide a wide range of tools and once users have experience of the platform they will appreciate the wide range of information that the platform provides.

The First-generation Terminal — MoonBot

The First-generation Terminal — MoonBot

Moonbot
Our team has developed and is supporting the trading terminal MoonBot which was introduced in October 3, 2017. Currently, the performance of MoonBot surpasses that of most existing trading systems as a result of its advanced functionality and the high security features designed to protect your trading activities.
Secure Connection to the Exchange
The connection from MoonBot to an Exchange is carried out using special keys that the user receives from an exchange such as Binance or Bittrex.
MoonBot connects securely to cryptocurrency trading Exchanges through two special keys which are uniquely and only known to their owner. These are the API key, and the Secret key, both of which the users receives directly from the Exchange.
The MoonBot terminal then receives data and information from the exchange’s API collected at several different access levels, including:
Public information (publicly accessible data related to trading in general):
  • charts;
  • quotes;
  • orderbook;
  • real-time executed orders.
  • Authenticated information (unique to the users and which requires authentication access using the special keys): personal account status (wallet balances);
  • user transactions (such as the details of executed trades).
After receiving the various data information from the exchange, the terminal records these data in a local database for further processing and application.
Security Systems
The MoonBot terminal provides completely private storage of all your personal data!
The MoonBot team has absolutely no access to personal data, you are the only one controlling its security and have complete control over access to your details.
The MoonBot team are not able to withdraw, nor to move, any funds from your personal Exchange account or wallet.
You can therefore safely use the terminal for trading, receiving public information from the Exchange, and should you wish to share with others, the trading data on your account.
You therefore are the only person with control and access to your Exchange wallet, and can be completely assured of the absolute security of your private funds.
Lightning-fast Execution of the Orders on the Exchange and Order Status Update
Depending on the distance of the user from the exchange servers, the delay in order execution should not exceed 1 second. Theoretically, the delay can be reduced to a minimum intangible — 10–20 ms. Below is presented a very short extract(4 seconds in total) of the MoonBot log text file with brief explanations and highlights of the key features.

Tick Chart. Display of All Orders on the Chart
Thanks to the API connection to the exchange, the terminal receives stream data of all filled orders on the exchange as soon as they were processed by the exchange servers and immediately displays them on the chart.

Thus, the visualization of the current state of the market is provided in real time with an accuracy of tens of milliseconds and as detailed as displaying each order on the chart.

Auto Trading on Signals
Fully automatic processing and trading off Telegram signals as well as parced TradingView alerts.

Automatic Detection of Market Conditions and Reaction to its Changes
Thanks to streaming data acquisition, the terminal monitors all available markets simultaneously, and is therefore able to react almost instantaneously as favorable trading possibilities are presented. And due to the minimal delay in the execution of orders, MoonBot responds to abnormal changes almost instantly.

Advanced Orders. Stop Loss, Take Profit, Trailing Stop
OCO orders (one cancels the other) are one of the most sought-after functions from both the Exchanges providing liquidity to the markets, and applications running on top of the exchanges. The modern Trader cannot trade without the basic “smart” functions and addons to traditional exchange orders and considers them to be the minimum necessary set in their armory.

https://preview.redd.it/3gsh12b42m931.png?width=1200&format=png&auto=webp&s=7f21bd7e7505f9bb5a95555cf355bb6f1f5efab4
Stop Loss
One of the most important tools for Traders is to be able to place orders whilst practicing safe money management in order to mitigate against losses. One of the most important safety tools is to use a Stop Loss, which is especially important in volatile, low liquidity markets.
With MoonBot, the user can set a Stop Loss threshold (either as a percentage of the order price, or as a number of price points), which their strategy can accept should the price move in the opposite direction to that expected. When this threshold value has been reached, the order will be closed automatically.
Technically, a Stop Loss can be set up in two ways: either as a stop-limit order placed directly on the exchange at the same time as the initial position is opened; or as a function controlled in real-time by the MoonBot terminal itself. Additional types of conditional Stop Loss functions include:
  1. Additional and conditional Stop Losses – these are activated by a timer, and depend on the price reached. Thus Moonbot can raise the Stop Loss to a break-even point, or can be set to move upward to follow coin growth and to achieve higher profitability.
  2. BV/SV Ratio Stop Loss — this is a measure of buying/selling pressure and depends on the ratio of the volume of coin purchases compared against sales over a given time range. For example, if the number of sales exceeds the number of purchases, then this Stop Loss would be activated
  3. V-STOP — this is a stop which depends on the volume in the orderbook, where a price and volume level is set, which if broken will activate the Stop Loss.
  4. Trailing Stop — Trailing Stop is a General Stop Loss Management Tool. This very important feature allows the Trader to maximize profit in an automatic mode by following upward price movements, until the price reverses by a preset amount. At that stage the Stop Loss is activated.
    Take Profit
The Trader can fix the profit gained as the value of an asset increases in several ways:
  • By closing the position after a predefined profit percentage has been reached.
  • By remaining in the position, and setting the Stop Loss level to break-even, or to higher profit levels.

Algorithmic Trading
At the moment, MoonBot has 13 types of strategies in-built (manual) using specific and well-proven algorithms (algorithmic trading or algo-trading).

Trusted Management
MoonBot includes a successful and well-tested Trusted Management feature, in other words — Copy Trading:
  • All trade actions from the Master Terminal are repeated on the Follower’s Terminal (slave terminal).
  • The Follower’s deposit remains securely in their own personal exchange account.
  • The Trusted Management feature does not have direct access to money, or to direct trading on someone else’s account, but manages only its own Exchange orders, simultaneously broadcasting encrypted messages to Followers terminals containing all Master actions.

Trust Management is successfully implemented and used by members of our community. The statistics of those TM Traders who share their results can be reviewed on the website — stat.moon-bot.com on the RatingTM tab.

10 Blockchain Companies To Watch In Asia

10 Blockchain Companies To Watch In Asia

https://preview.redd.it/bjix9mvdw2m31.png?width=864&format=png&auto=webp&s=0c7b463f7bcf30dfe1bff31aa70b33ca6e002e8f
Article by Forbes: Joresa Blount
In 2018, Asia was one of the leading regions in terms of growth of blockchain jobs, cryptocurrency usage, innovation, and general openness. Despite some early woes with China banning ICOs, China still produces nearly 70% of crypto mining activity.
For users and entrepreneurs, the Asian ecosystem is in general a friendly one. For example, in Singapore Bitcoin is taxed as a good rather than a currency, setting a 7% flat tax for trades or purchases using Bitcoin. In Japan, messenger giant, LINE, was just granted a crypto exchange license from the Japanese financial regulator. In Korea, news just broke that the country’s largest entertainment company would be launching its own token.
Besides the name brand companies that are exploring crypto solutions, there are hundreds of innovative startups and founders looking to radically disrupt their respective industries with blockchain technology. This list contains ten innovative blockchain startups based in Asia worth watching, including exchanges, fintech startups, and more.
Today In: Innovation
1. Level01
Level01 is the world’s first broker less derivatives exchange in collaboration with Thomson Reuters. Through using blockchain technology, the platform eliminates middlemen while providing a decentralized trading experience. Users can trade derivatives and options in forex, cryptocurrencies, commodities, stocks and indices, all from the Level01 platform and app.
Level01 does this by using Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) for transparent and automated trade settlement on the blockchain, with their unique Artificial Intelligence (AI) analytics called Fairsense that provides fair value pricing dynamically to counterparties in a trade, based on current and retrospective market data from Thomson Reuters. The platform and app are currently undergoing stringent beta testing by 50 experienced traders.
2. Galaxy Pool
Galaxy Pool, also known as GPO, is a brand-new asset issuance style on blockchain that utilizes intelligent contracts for initial digital asset issuance. In general, GPO assets can be best described as mining machines used to explore various kinds of digital assets that can obtain value-added benefits of GPO through the repurchase and destruction of pond profits.
With this brand-new asset issuance style on blockchain, more humanistic investment opportunities with free withdrawal rights can be provided to investors.
3. Biki
Headquartered in Singapore, BiKi.com is a global cryptocurrency exchange ranked Top 20 on CoinMarketCap. BiKi.com provides a digital assets platform for trading more than 150 cryptocurrencies and 220 trading pairs. Since its official opening in August 2018, BiKi.com is considered one of the fastest-growing cryptocurrency exchanges in the world with an accumulated 1.5 million registered users, 130,000 daily active users, over 2000 community partners and 200,000 community members in under a year.
BiKi’s competitive advantages include helping projects with marketing, influencers, brand awareness, and community growth in the Chinese markets and abroad. With a global approach, BiKi also helps Chinese companies go global and international companies penetrate Chinese markets.
4. Whitebit
With a global team of over 100 people, Whitebit is a professional digital asset trading platform that services most major Asian markets via a European license. The exchange holds 95% of user funds in cold wallets and offers users an intuitive user interface with real-time orderbooks, charting and technical analysis tools, and automation features. Whitebit’s major competitive advantage is processing speeds of up to 10,000 trades every second and 1,000,000 TCP connections.
Whitebit has also announced the release of S.M.A.R.T. Box, a program that allows users to budget and allocate funds based on unique plans with varying durations and interest rates. Next is the launch of margin trading in Q4 2020, as well as mobile iOS and Android apps and an eventual US license.
5. Opu Labs
Opu Labs is creating the self-care business model of the future starting with the skincare space. There are over 1.2 billion online skincare consumers with a $3 billion digital services business. Opu Labs helps make the decision-making process easier by offering free advice powered by AI, rewarding users for their purchase data using blockchain technology, and using robust technologies to connect brands and consumers.
Under the leadership of CEO Marc Bookman, Opu Labs was named in the top 25 healthcare solutions by CIO Applications and won the start-up GrandSlam in Singapore. To date, $2m in rewards have been earned on the platform and the company will be releasing their long-awaited apps soon.
6. Coinsbit.io
Thanks to his vast expertise, experience, and sense of the market, Nikolay Udianskyi created a high-quality crypto exchange called Coinsbit.io. Now leading the Asian crypto market, Coinsbit was named the best 2018 crypto exchange at Asian Blockchain Life 2019.
Coinsbit is planning to further distinguish itself from the competition through a series of novel functions. Among its plans is a P2P microfinancing lending service that will enable users to borrow and lend money on the platform. Coinsbit will ensure privacy for all users and will not require borrowers to show their credit history. An additional planned feature is an invest box service, which will reward users who deposit cryptocurrency by paying them interest on various coins.
7. GST Coin
GST is a comprehensive digital application platform which integrates encrypted payment currency, blockchain and artificial intelligence technology. It is dedicated to providing the most valuable intelligent digital asset service for every user and creating a new GST digital public chain in a diversified market structure. GST project is committed to using the most advanced technology to create the most perfect user experience, and it has always been in the forefront of the market in the decentralized security sharing architecture.
GST was born out of MHC Asset Management Corporation, a high-tech enterprise engaged in R&D and innovation of blockchain technology. Their executive team includes CEO Ms. Zhang Qun and other leading technologists and entrepreneurs in China.
8. Columbu
Columbu (CAT) is a global community-based open-source blockchain project that has been active since 2017.

The project will allow for a worldwide distributed and free economic collaborative network of intelligent economies. This will happen through a community incentive mechanism and autonomous system to build in real-time. The project has an ambitious roadmap that will include growing its global developer community and other projects within their ecosystem.
9. KBC
Registered in Singapore, KBC is the powering token of a global financial infrastructure and range of products focused around gold. These products include an innovative Voice-over-Blockchain smartphone called IMpulse K1, a crypto payment merchant processor called K-Merchant, and a cryptocurrency exchange and trading platform. Together these products and entities combine to form the Gold Imperium, the company’s financial ecosystem.
The company has attracted heavy interest from users who have seen the benefits of having both gold and cryptocurrency exposure, as well as the ease of use of being able to use each day to day through tokens such as KBC. As both markets expand, keep an eye on KBC.
10. TEXCENT
TEXCENT is a Singaporean blockchain and fintech startup focused on fully-integrated solutions for remittance, payments, and microfinancing. Using blockchain technology, the company wants to provide seamless and convenient digital financial services solutions to Asia and the world.

Turning up the volume on Kyber - upcoming projects that will bring more volume, liquidity and growth to Kyber.

It's no secret that Kyber's volume isn't off the charts, especially in this bear run.
However in-case you haven't been paying attention here are a few recent things that are going to bring more volume and growth to Kyber that are right around the corner:
  1. WBTC - wrapped Bitcoin is going to be released this month meaning we can trade Bitcoin on the Ethereum blockchain. That alone is a pretty big deal (even with trusted custodians). People like convenience, and being able to store Bitcoin in your Ethereum wallet is exactly that, convenient. Kyber will support WBTC from release day and onward meaning anyone who wants to buy Bitcoin but on the Ethereum blockchain can go to Kyber. And with the permissionless order book? They can even day trade Bitcoin. Bitcoin investors and Bitcoin day traders will both bring volume to Kyber through WBTC on both KyberSwap and the available permissionless orderbooks. Release: January 2019
  2. The permissionless order books have been upgraded into the protocol according to Kyber in this tweet and will be ready in less than a week. Exchanges that use Kyber will be able to have permissionless order books. Instead of typing in how many tokens you want to trade and it telling you how much you're gonna get, you can create an order for an exact price and amount. This will attract more traders on top of the investors, which should increase volume. Not to mention the order books (from my understanding) will be implementable on any exchange that wants to build on top of Kyber. Release: January 2019
  3. ImToken released a hardware wallet recently that works with their mobile app both on Android/iPhone, it's slim like a credit card and suppose to be just as secure as competitors. ImToken is the wallet itself which support ETH/ERC20's/BTC/Bunch of others, ImKey is the hardware wallet. Users are able to directly swap assets using Kyber through ImToken using their ImKey. ImToken is used for 10% of all Ethereum transactions as it is (their claim). Release: ImToken is released, ImKey's will ship in March 2019.

Portfolio Upgrades and Speed

All the user-facing updates in our latest release:

Portfolio Upgrades: Balances and Dust

We've done the backend work to enable total balances to show in Portfolio, meaning open orders won't affect your Portfolio balance! We also wanted to let you know that we hide dust automatically, and currently define it as any holding which is less than .01 of your quote currency. Please let us know your thoughts on how you view/handle dust for your own portfolio as we will look to provide additional ways to handle that in the future.

Indices on Cryptowatch

We now publish indices created by CryptoFacilities on our site. Indices are fairly new to the crypto industry, but a cornerstone of financial systems and a bit step in legitimizing crypto as an asset class. Since our indices tracking is new, you may not see much historical data for a few of the pairs. Stay tuned for more interactivity with these indices and features around them in the future. When the whole world has a stake in a Bitcoin index, you can say you saw it here first.

Fixed: Snappier Price Updates

Our team and several users noticed that the last price on the chart, the last price in the orderbook, and the trades flowing in on the past trades section were updating at slightly different rates. We brought them all in sync, so you'll see everything flash together in real time as trades come in for all our markets.

Some rules for trading BTC

After dabbling in investing, swing trading and HODL'ing, I decided to try something the whole internet thinks is a bad idea, day trading. Two weeks ago I moved my capital to fiat and have been buying and selling BTC for a profit.
I don't think I'm outperforming just holding bitcoin overall, although I have made out better on some of the down days. So why not just hodl?
With the uncertainty in the market, having my investments safely in fiat while I sleep has been quite reassuring, and seems like a much lower risk approach as your not at the mercy of BTC like you are with trading alt coins.
So below are some of the rules I tend to stick by. They are my own observations and may be terrible advice, but for me they have worked.
Buy Low, Sell High
It's kinda the core concept, but people often succumb to FOMO and end up buying high or vice versa. Just think before you submit that order, "Am I buying a high?".
Don't be upset about missed profits
You only made 2%, and then it shot up 10%? Don't be frustrated, you made a profit and didn't expose yourself to any unnecessary risk. Making money isn't a mistake.
Buying low is the important bit
Focus your efforts on determining the bottom rather than worrying about the top. If you get the bottom right, you can just sit back and relax until your risk/reward ratio becomes too much.
Don't go all in on your bottom
Have a reserve of fiat that can be used to get another bottom and reduce your dollar cost average. This means if you miss the bottom your chances of breaking back even are a lot higher as you can offset the price of the false bottom with the new one.
Don't let a trade happen without your consent
It's tempting to say "I'll just put a limit order in at X and not worry about it", which in my experience never ends well, it either doesn't quite fill, or pumps right after it fills and either way you feel like a jackass.
While you hold BTC you are trading
Consider it a job, you wouldn't just leave your desk during an important business transaction and this is the same. As soon as you buy you need to make sure you have nothing planned for the next few hours and can monitor the markets. Nothing worse than missing a sell opportunity because you had other commitments.
Use TradingView
TradingView.com lets you get all of the technical indicators and price history that is missing from most exchanges, as well as setting up alerts. I decided to pay for their entry level package and it's well worth it.
My Chart
If you want a guide on setting up TradingView like mine and what all the pretty colours mean, let me know!
Check the order book
TradingView used to have the coinbase orderbook on display but for some reason it's been removed or borked. So before making a trade it's key to check the order book and see any walls forming and check how they match your theory based on the technicals. For example if you see consistent bounces on the 200 moving average, estimate what that value will be and look for it in the order book to confirm or deny your theory.
Avoid fees where possible
On GDAX you have to pay a fee to make a market order, which is a real pain, and sometimes it is worth it, but always be conscious of whether your gains are going to outbalance the fees.
Stick to one time interval but check others
I use the five minute candles to set my alerts, as it's a popular timeframe which means the technicals have more weight to them.
It's important to check the bigger time frames, get an idea of where we are on the daily and hourly scale.
Feel your profits
One of the nice things about trading to fiat is that it's super easy to withdraw your funds into real money. Set yourself a goal, be it your rent for the month, a new laptop or a shiny new toy, and trade until you have those gains, then go pay for it with your profits!

All new beta version of doge.yottabyte.nu is open for public!

Click here to go to the beta site!
Updates March 29th:
Holy shibe time goes fast when you're busy. I haven't done anything since last update, sorry. I'll try and squeeze some time in this weekend to add at least Prelude to the beta site. Can't promise more than that.
Updates March 15th:
Been very busy recently so I haven't had a lot of time to work on the site. Most functions should be running well atm. Here's the top of my todo list as of now:
ORIGINAL POST
Hey everyone! I've been blown away by the amount of traffic coming to my site the past couple of months. This is definitely my most visited website by far. The site has been very static since early January though. As I've hinted on in the old thread, this is because I've been working on a new version of the site. It's taken way longer than I expected it to, but now it's at a point where I think it can be released to the public.
Some stats since the 14th December release:
  • 2,000,000+ pageviews
  • 1,000,000+ visits
  • 156,000+ unique visitors
And now on to the features of the new site:
  • Much faster updates, being pushed to your browser as the trades come through, instead of your browser querying for new updates every few seconds.
  • Live view of orderbook, in both DOGE and BTC
  • Convert to more currencies! Currently supporting USD, SEK and PLN, please request other exchanges/currencies to add if you want them.
  • Currency conversions now update live and save between sessions
  • Candlestick charts! Oh yes.
  • Interact with the charts (zoom and drag!)
  • Live updates of dogecoin statistics: block, difficulty and hashrate.
  • Volume bars
  • Exponential moving average and simple moving average.
  • Price alerts! (Currently only works using Chrome notifications)
Some questions that I assume you guys might have:
Where did the other exchanges go?
I did not prioritize adding these exchanges because the volume is so low and trades happen so rarely. They're not as fun to watch. I will be adding more exchanges as the code gets more lightweight. For now, they still exist on the old site at least.
Why no more pretty dogecoin ads?
I'm just trying out Google Adsense to see how profitable it can be (compared to dogecoin services). Still have not decided whether it stays.
Wow this looks a lot like Bitcoinwisdom
I know. In fact, when I built the foundation it was very inspired by Bitcoinwisdom, just like the old version was by Bitcoinity. These are both awesome sites that I use all the time. As I was working on the site, Bitcoinwisdom released their DOGE graphs. There wasn't really a point to stop working though so I decided to keep it this way, cause I just like it the way it looks. Since then I've been aiming at making it the best of both worlds, taking inspiration from many different chart sites to get the best experience out there.
Vault of Satoshi, please?
I've been looking into adding VoS since they started DOGE trading. Unfortunately their API lacks one important feature, which means I can't add a graph. Sorry.
Kraken, please?
Kraken has already been added and is coming live on the site once I've worked out some bugs!
Why can't we see data older than [date]??
Older data was collected using different methods. It can kind of be converted to work in the new charts but it won't be as accurate. I will definitely be doing this in the near future anyway. Bter has an awesome API, so I was able to download all the data since they opened for DOGE trading. You can go on the Bter graph if you want to see December data for now.
Where are the DOGE/DOGE charts?
Coming soon.
[INSERT QUESTION HERE]

Good Crypto Trading Practices/intel 101

Just figured I'd take some time out for newbs, and intermediates that trade a lot and keep getting rekt, or simply want to improve and haven't read much yet re psychology and or modeling after great traders.
The bad part about stoplosses are that if it drops to $.80, and goes just below it only to reverse and shoot back up - you're stuck buying in at a higher rate.
I've had stop losses going down in 20% increments and buy orders 10% below each in succession and it has worked at times too. You can be creative with how you set these up.
Feel free to dop a comment, question, etc. Been here since 2013, have seen it all, have done well.
To TNB hitting $1 in the near! :)

My reviews of bitcoin exchanges and services my business used

Over the past weeks myself (a 23 year old from Vancouver, Canada) & my business partner (a 21 Regensburg, Germany) have tried a lot of different XBT exchanges and sellers. He reddits a lot and suggested I type up what I wrote down about our experience to share them with you.
Great experiences:
Kraken - 9.8
General: Kraken is one of the better platforms we used, mostly when dealing with the Euro. We opened a Kraken account, made a $5000 USD deposit and a €7000 deposit and were ready to begin trading in under 24 hours. We ran into no problems with them, our orders filled quickly and the emails that we had with their team were fairly straight forward. More payment methods would make them a 10.
Pros: They have many pair listings, special types of trading orders including stop loss, take profit, and others. They accept SEPA payments for Euro and bank wires for most other deposits. They have good security practices (https://www.kraken.com/security/practices) and have done an audit with proof of solvency (https://www.kraken.com/security/audit). Well known team, public facing. Has LTC, NameCoin and Ripple.
Cons: Does not accept ACH payments for US users. Lack's transparency of cost on USD bankwires (TBD*). Some users have raised concerns over the pasts of the investment team (this had no impact on score but should be mentioned). Support team was quick and solved our problems.
Bitstamp - 9.5
General: Bitstamp is a market leader and great exchange. We had a very good experience with them. They are probably our default choice if we had to use a general USD exchange to run an ATM or something. We made a deposit of $15,000 USD and trading went smoothly. It is important to note this exchange we withdrew only in Bitcoin, we did not try the Fiat withdrawals. Full transparency could make them a 10.
Pros: Large volume, great liquidity, fairly quick to get an account open and money deposits. Our time from opening an account to trading was under 24 hours. They take a decently low fee .5% Has a proof of reserves audit by third-party.
Cons: Audit is third-party and not proof of solvency. Little is known about management team. Bankwires are only real method to be used here. Does not allow trading in non-USD. Trades are only do Bitcoin. Many claims of Bitstamp freezing users Bitcoin under AML/KYC claims and asking for lots information such as signed wallets proving source of those coins (We did not experience this).
Vault of Satoshi - 9.2
General: Vault of Satoshi is a much smaller exchange then the other "great" exchanges but they do really awesome things for XBT. Their team was very supportive and really quick. We had our account open, verified and trading in under an hour ON A SUNDAY. It was the fastest set up time of any exchange that deals with fiat currency. For user experience and security they would be our top pick. International support and higher volume could make them a high 9 if not a 10.
Pros: High security (http://www.reddit.com/vos/comments/27hd8d/are_my_coins_safe_on_vos/ci0yeua) and transparency including daily generation of Proof of Solvency audits, very transparent team (https://www.vaultofsatoshi.com/about) who are active on Reddit. Allows trading of over 20 coins to both fiat and to any other coin. Has Interac deposits for Canadians, they apparently can take an hour or two to enter the account, but ours took maybe ten minutes. Easily the fastest deposit method we found.
Cons: Pretty much just for Canadians unless you transfer coins in for day trading. Supposed to be expanding soon. Volume was lower but seems to be picking up. Needs a lot of personal information. Would be great to see more payment methods outbound.
Good Experiences:
Coinbase - 8.7
General: Coinbase is a great service, backed with good money and clearly a very secure environment. Being a dual resident and citizen I was able to use Coinbase for some of our purchases via my US bank account. It was really quick to open an account and get buying. We bought around $5000 worth of Bitcoin to send into other coin-only exchanges. The support staff were helpful, but could have been trained a bit more about Bitcoin knowledge. Overall things went really well. More coins, international support and proof of solvency could put it up to a 9.
Pros: Clear set price not dealing with any "orderbooks", great platform very easy and straight foward to user. Great for new users. Has ACH payments for American Users so you don't have to do a bankwire. It is backed by a major investors. Has stable relationships with a bank unlike many other small exchanges. It is fast, secure, and friendly support staff.
Cons: Not a full exchange, US only, support can be slow to respond, has no proof of reserves, promotes the use of online wallet services. Does not allow you to buy or sell coins other than XBT.
Cryptsy - 7.2
General: Was used for dealing with smaller altcoins that weren't on other exchanges. Our total volume on there was roughly 8 BTC. Deposits went fairly smoothly, although we did have to contact support in regards to one submission of Blackcoin that did not appear in our balance. The support team was slow and rather rude but did get the job done eventually.
Pros: No verification needed for trades, deposit and go. Lots of currency pairs. High volumes. Strong platform. Great chart features. Great price ticker on the side.
Cons: No proof of funds, not much security, doesn't support fiat, support team is kind of a pain to deal with if something does go wrong. Should really only use if you are day trading
QuadrigaCX- 7.0
General: QuadrigaCX is a small Canadian exchange. All around a decent service we only did around $500 transaction with them in order to do a quick test but we were quite happy with the Canadian provider we had selected. These guys are decent backup. It took less than 48 hours to get my account open and trading. If they had proof of solvency and support staff then we would have likely given them an 8 or a 9.
Pros: Low fee (0.5%), has book for XBT/AU (gold). Has online interac payments.
Cons: Not large books, no proof of solvency, lower transparency, called contact number twice during operation hours and got voicemail, email response was next day and was short but answered my questions.
InstaBT - 6.5
General: These guys are similar in concept to a Coinbase. It's small limit purchases of XBT instantly. Site looks a little dodgy but they are an accepted payment method on Vault of Satoshi so we decided to give them a try for about $100 in XBT.
Pros: It was quick and easy and did not require any type of I.D. verification. We had a support phonecall and the guy seemed friendly enough. Lower fees would make this method a 7.
Cons: Has limits and really high fees. I think the fee was around 9%.
QuickBT - 6.4
General*: These guys are pretty much the same as above, although rather than being used for Vault of Satoshi they are used for CAvirtex. The service was all in all the same, nicer website, did $100 in XBT. Only reason for the lower score is when they guy called me to verify my phone number he was a bit of a grump. Lower fees and friendly support would increase their score.
Pros: Quick online interac without verification
Cons: Guy was a bit of a grump, and had really high fees.
Bad Experiences
CAVirtex - 4
General: CAvirtex is a Canadian only exchange. If I am not mistaken it's the oldest one around. They only do XBT and LTC. We did about $10,000 through them before we started exploring other options. A number of accusations have been posted in this sub against them that make them questionable, but their user support, slow time in dealing with funds and general attitude towards there users is what got them the low score from us. There would need to be lots of changes to raise their score.
Pros: Usually the price is a few bucks cheaper here than at other exchanges, not sure why though. You can withdraw your money to a pre-paid debit card.
Cons: In our experience we found it extremely slow to get started. We tried to open an account and it was almost a week before we got verified. We made a deposit via Direct Debit (EFT) and it took about a week before it showed up in our account. When we tried to reach out to support about this it took 3 days before we got a snippy reply. All in all we were not impressed. It's not how people should handle customers.
The Rock Trading - 2.5
General: We had decided to try this Malta based e-trading platform with our Euro funds. The exchange is rather small but has some ok features. Ultimately we only did about €700 before we got fed up using them. They support SEPA payments which is great but their support team could not give a shit about you.
Pros SEPA payments, lots of currency support, BTC shares
Cons: By far the worst support around
LocalBitcoins - No Score
General: Localbitcoins pairs you with sellers in your area, digitally or by meet up and then exchange Bitcoin. Before we got into exchanges I had done maybe $2500 through localbitcoin purchases. You always end up over paying, you have to meet up with the person which is time consuming and you never know who you are going to get.
Pros: The only real advantage to this method is that you aren't going through an exchange and having to verify. It allows those who are worried about their identity to keep it secure
Cons: You end up way over paying for the bitcoins that you purchase, you never know who you are going to get and some users have even been mugged at such meetups. In my case I arranged to meet someone and waited over an hour at the meetup spot and no one showed up.
Next to Try:
-Bitcoin.de
-BitFinX
-BTC-E
-OKcoin
-Bitpay (for sales tool)
-Itbit

PSA: Bitfinex bugged out

Bitfinex is currently glitched out. There are bids and asks in for 10000 and 500, respectively, that appear to be stopping the exchange from processing orders. I currently believe this is due to both orders having been placed for .001 Bitcoin. Bitfinex allows entries up to six digits, but apparently doesn't prevent you from placing an order for an amount the system rounds down to 0 to display it, which might mess up some > symbol somewhere? It's not much of a theory. Hoping for the best, obviously.
No word from Bitfinex has been posted, to my knowledge.
EDIT: Also, the Litecoin ticker price responded very strangely, jumping between 16 and 22 very quickly.
EDIT2: TRADING IS NOT HALTED. Bitstamp orders seem to be being processed. Watch the orderbook, not the chart.
EDIT3: I have attempted to withdraw LTC from Bitfinex. I will update you on success/failure of withdrawal.
EDIT4: 40 minutes, no transaction. Pending approval. This means the hot wallet is out.
EDIT5: Trading halted 15 min ago--around 2:40.
EDIT6: Some quick totaling shows about 12-13K BTC and 150K LTC changed hands during this debacle. I wonder how much they keep in the hot wallet.
EDIT7: Made a quick blog post containing all of the info I have.

Congratulations PARTICL team! - 16-04-2017 (PART/SDC trading analysis post crowdfund completion)

Well the PARTICL crowdfund is officially over and in spite of some doubts I had during week 2 and 3 of this 4 week event, they managed to fill all their funding milestones!
-This means the outstanding 1.49 million SDC will be converted to PART and 80% of it will be redistributed to the crowd funder participants (the other 20% of this pot will go to the dev wallet).
In other words anyone who bought SDC at <$1.60 (and swapped it for PART) got a good deal in my opinion.
...
I've used the experience to diversify my holdings and engage in day trading/swing trading a little more. I won't deny when you've stared at the charts and orderbooks, it's tempting to dive in. Experience is a blessing in this game and whilst I brace myself for the long wait (8 weeks) for PARTICL to hit exchanges, I accept I'm going to be holding this one for a very long time in crypto world; 9 months.
I don't think it's worth selling the PARTICL token so soon, given all the potential, all the recent transparency, all the videos and casts/communications explaining what PARTICL is and the likelihood that this will continue. The SDC development may have been shrouded in secrecy but it looks like PARTICL is going to be a much more transparent and open affair.
I will personally be reverting to a pattern of holding (and possibly accumulating) ETH, PART and REP whilst trading in other alts over varying time frames. That says something about my market biases but I will say I've learnt that having no biases is more important to making money in this space overall. It hurt that I'd spent a lot of time wrapped up in SDC and I'm sad to see it go but diversifying and choosing the path I have has helped greatly and recovered my unrealised gains when SDC was at $5.
...
To those that got burned buying SDC at the top remember there's opportunity in every asset to pump. Even BTCD (Bitcoin Dark) pumped 1000% to $11 after it been abandoned by the devs. The reality is that markets are stupid (like mobs are stupid) because the bulk of traders that comprise them are untrained and follow patterns rather than lead or anticipate them. Look at other assets trading in the cryptospace; >100-200% losses can be quickly recovered in 1-2 smartly timed and executed trades.
I am not saying buy SDC. Now is a terrible time to do so. Instead if you want to play a game of profit with other people's stupidity, just watch the chart, daily trading volume and order book for a while and see if someone is attempting to accumulate and pump it. The API exchange bots will continue their business of automated trading to settle price to the mean but it might be an opportunity.
That said this is an awful idea when you consider how many and how often other alt coins will pump in value. Hedging with some mental stop losses and conditional sells (I never enter conditional buy/sell orders on Poloniex or Bittrex as I personally believe they monitor the books) can prove profitable if you are patient, willing to wait months on each asset and check the prices daily, selling when the almost inevitable 100% rise comes. Remember the average return on a traditional stock index is 10% PA - 100% PA is a good return in contrast for what is essentially a stress free strategy.
...
I am increasingly bullish on PARTICL. I even have some suggested solutions to their potential problem of attracting vendors:
...
So keep that in mind. I believe the future of blockchain technology lies not in being a currency but in providing services and platforms to implement real world fundamental change; whether this makes markets more efficient, decentralised and secure or increases accessibility to ownership rights and investment potential I believe the platforms that will succeed in the longer term are those that attempt to draw non-speculative revenue into their ecosystem.
So many crypto-tokens are obsessed with being currencies. That to me shows a real lack of imagination (and a get rich quick, screw other people over mentality) among many developers in the cryptospace. That said projects like Ethereum, Particl, Augur, ARK, Library Credits (and quite a few others) transcend these tendencies and provide the real future of this space.
Similarly I hope the new class of chains which take advantage of the masternode/PoS mechanisms and implement self-funding budgets like PIVx/DASH/Decred and now Stratis use those growing budgets (both in coin number and exponentially in coin price) to interface with the real world in some way and fund public development, small businesses and acquire real estate and utilities similar to corporations that acquire such assets to increase their intrinsic value and create a perpetuating and stimulated real-world economy that rewards the token holders of those participating chains (see this article I wrote here: https://www.reddit.com/pivx/comments/657ej2/i_hope_pivx_aspires_to_be_more_than_just_a/).
Anyway I'm done for now. Catch me on the next upcoming trollbox podcast (https://twitter.com/trollboxpodcast) where I make a guest appearance and talk at length about the above!
Trade well,
Joskye

Exchange KuCoin, a comprehensive analysis of KuCoin Exchange. And KuCoin Shares

If you'll find this helpful, please sign up using my invitation link: https://www.kucoin.com/#/?r=E3sJ60
Quick disclosure, nothing in this article should be considered as financial advice, this is purely my opinion and my research alone, take it with a grain of salt.
It’s an up-and-coming cryptoexchange that is like an integration of COSS and Binance. The problem with COSS is that there is little incentive for investors to use it, the UI is lackluster, it lacks proper charting tools, the previous CEO was known to be part of pyramid schemes. Binance, a similar Hongkong exchange is something that we can also compare KCS to, the BNB token offers the utility to reduce fees, but again there’s little incentive to actually have BNB tokens are use the Binanance exchange. I elaborate further on the advantages the Kucoin will have over other exchanges.
Kucoin has similarities to COSS in that 50% of fees that they charge are returned to the holders of KCS everyday at 12am. Holders of KCS get access to other perks such as trading fee discounts similar to BNB, customer-service fast passes and more. I also need to highlight that the 100m that is being with-held for 4 years and 30m of which is locked up for 2 years belonging to the founders/investors respectively ARE NOT subject to the 50% re-compensation of fees which normal traders/investors earn. Which means that only the current 100m supply for the next 4 years is eligible to receive the dividends from KCS.
Kucoin has a long-term goal of becoming a decentralized exchange(DEX) or integrating as much of it as they possibly can within their ecosystem, a point that I’d really like to highlight is that recently there has been a lot of news/FUD around exchanges like Bittrex and Bitfinex banning users, Finex have already disabled US citizens access to trading on their platform, and Bittrex is a US exchange, so who knows when they’ll have to close their doors to US citizens, they’ve even gone so far as to ban people from middle-eastern nations, however decentralized exchanges are on-chain and there is no governance or need to store funds on centralized exchanges to risk being hacked, as well as lawmaking bodies having no jurisdiction over them. There are currently withdrawal limits on accounts but the developers will be removing those very shortly, Kucoin has extremely fast transfer times with lower amounts of confirmations for speedy deposit/withdrawal, low transaction fees of 0.1% with special events where some coins are free to trade, such as WTC/HSR as of now.
The user interface is amazing compared to most exchanges out there, they enable trading view charting which is much better for traders to use compared to charts such as on Bittrex or Binance which have a very limited selection of charting tools, there are some kinks on the website such as the orderbook, however I have had a talk with the developers and they said that they were looking for “more elegant ways” to display the orderbook than just a scrollbar, they were also looking into producing a nightmode which is a god-send for night-dwelling (night-traders).
The Kucoin team are extremely active and have nearly 24/7 support, you can go into their telegram and ask them any question and they’ll answer you hastily and earnestly.
They also have an invitation bonus which is as a referral compensation program, basically for every person that YOU invite, you get 20% of the trading fees of the person you invited as an INCOME, and then 12% of the trading fees of the people that they invite. (I know you think that this reeks of a pyramid-scheme, however, I need to highlight that the KCS team do NOT benefit at all from this referral program as they actually LOSE money if OTHER people/users are using these referrals.) It is an attempt to bring more volume and traffic, but traders/investors only stand to gain from this, we have absolutely nothing to lose, the more friends you invite the more income you can have. (Some people are calling this a pyramid scheme, however it’s simply a marketing tool, I brush up on this in the second half of the article)
Right now, KCS is flying under the radar, it hasn’t even been added to CMC yet (they are getting it added very soon) and once it does we do expect to see a lot of hype, there will be a very huge in-flux of traders who would come to the exchange, I see this as the death of COSS, no one will go back once they try out KCS.
Let’s talk about the valuation of KCS, currently there is 200m supply cap, eventually over a long period of time the KCS team will buyback KCS (optional to sell to them) with the profits made from trading fees to the burn the supply until there is only 100m left, don’t be alarmed by this, there won’t be a sudden supply restriction of 100m over one night, its something that will probably take a decade to achieve, if not even longer. Who knows for sure, right so moving on; KCS is currently valued at approximately $0.6USD at 200m supply thats around $54m USD market cap. It’s only been out for under a month and the ICO price was $0.3USD(5000 satoshis) or around there, so it has doubled and a medium-high marketcap of $54m but lets compare the price to Binance, which is currently $1.27 through all of the FUD/FOMO on Bitcoin/bitcoin gold/2x. Token supply of 200m like, similar to KCS, was valued at its peak approximately $2.58 per BNB reaching a total market cap of around $270m, and it doesn’t even have the same features as KCS. So, KCS is currently valued at $0.6USD, with all of its amazing features, team, dividend payout, referral program; I believe has the potential to grow even larger and maintain its price. If not more. I do see this as a huge long-term project, it’s the mainstream exchange killer, it’s like the oneplus versus Apple and Samsung, if we actually evaluate the coin and the Kucoin exchange itself within its ecosystem it has nearly unlimited potential.
One of the common misconceptions and concerns is that traders have is, is Kucoin a MLM/Pyramid scheme?
What we have here is one of the posters on their website promoting an invitation/referral compensation program. The initial impact of the image makes one think that it is a pyramid scheme, but if you actually look closely you’ll understand that in actual fact Kucoin themselves don’t really benefit at all, they’re giving 90% of all of their fees to the referee as compensation while they only take 10%. This isn’t a pyramid scheme or some shady MLM, it’s a marketing tool to attract more traders and liquidity to the market. The only people who really benefit are the traders.
Getting straight to the point, it has a picture of a pyramid, but it isn’t a pyramid scheme. I need to highlight that the referral system is completely optional, you don’t need to invite anyone or spam your link, I understand that it does get annoying for people. It is a marketing plan aimed at being a liquidity attraction tool to try to hook more traders into using the exchange, but people are so stigmatized to the shape of pyramids that they fail to see the truth behind the curtains.
I’d like to go through the business model and ecosystem of exchanges, and as objectively as I can compare the difference between each exchange.
So for this example I’ll use 3 exchanges:
A. Bittrex
B. Kucoin
C. GDAX
I’d like to make a fair evaluation of these exchanges based on three things.
  1. Trading fees
  2. User friendliness
  3. Trading tools.
First, some more assumptions Kucoin is still in its early stages of launching as an exchange, I’ve talked to the developers and they will be adding in “more elegant ways to see the orderbook” and stoploss/take profit systems.
5-point evaluation: very good, good, mediocre, bad, very bad.
A. 1. Mediocre-Bad (0.25%) 2. Good 3. Mediocre-good.
B. 1. Very good (0.1%) 2. Good 3. Good
C. 1. Mediocre-Bad (0.25%) 2. Good. 3. Mediocre
Some other underlying assumptions are that each exchange has the same amount of trading volume daily; $100m. Each have the same variety of coins listed.
Given that information, which exchange would you personally as a trader gravitate towards; try to be as subjective as possible. If my evaluations are wrong, let me know and I will amend them.
You would inherently choose B. Correct? There is a recurring argument that the token offers no utility, the truth in the fact is that very few tokens offers anything at all, BTC is simply a speculative asset with no intrinsic value, and that’s it. I haven’t introduced the token dynamic just yet, so hold up.
Going back to the MLM/Pyramid scheme aspect of it. For something to be a pyramid scheme it has to have an initial buy-in where the grunts at the bottom purchase a product, and it has to directly benefit the upper echelons id est the developers/the exchange.
Does Kucoin meet any of those requirements? Not really. The referral program doesn’t require anything, you don’t need to hold Kucoin to be eligible for the 20% of fees that you’re earning from people you invite. It’s completely optional with no buy in, no product to sell. You can just use the exchange, or even invite people to get the referral bonus, then forget about it, and as they trade on the exchange you earn a % of those transaction fees passively. In fact, the Kucoin team loses from this marketing. Because they’re essentially giving a cut of the fees which they should earn back to its traders. Bittrex/GDAX don’t offer anything at all, they simply take 100% of all fees they have and put it in their pockets.
To summarize:
A. Bittrex pockets all transaction fees it earns from traders on its exchange without any compensation to traders.
B. Kucoin offers an optional referral promotion whereby referees earn a % of fees that are incurred by the referred to the referee as compensation to help bring more liquidity to the exchange. This is actually detrimental to kucoin as they earn less income from transaction fees by giving it to the referees.
C. GDAX pockets all transaction fees it earns from traders on its exchange without any compensation to its traders.
If you believe that this statement is incorrect, or overly subjective please speak out.
Now, the issue with the token. Some people are saying that it has no utility; I’m going to prove that it does have utility.
A. Bittrex does not offer a utility token which reduces fees, or returns any portion of their income to traders. Of $100m trading volume they pocket $250K a day.
B. Of all Kucoin token holders, 50% of all transaction fees earned by the exchange are transferred nightly at 12AM to Kucoin token holders. Of $100m daily trading volume they pocket $50k, while the other $50k is transferred to its token holders.
C. GDAX does not offer a utility token which reduces fees, or returns any portion of their income to traders. Of $100m trading volume they pocket up to $250K a day.
If there’s a problem with my calculations, please let me know.
Now I need to ask, is there value in holding the token? It is a speculative asset, which provides utility in generating returns for the holders of the token on the exchange. As far as tokens/coins go I’m fairly certain that this token has utility, it doesn’t just offer a cut of the 50% of daily trading volume as income but can also act eventually as fee discounts similar to BNB, as well as simply holding it will grant you support-fast access(Give that their support team is already very fast, that’s something to consider).
There is also no inherent need for the token, Bittrex/GDAX are already largely successful even without utility tokens, so why is Kucoin going out of their way to even lose up to 50% of their income?
The answer lies in liquidity, and competition; the utility token, the referral compensation system, they are all liquidity attraction tools. Exchanges make money based off how much transaction fees they can incur through the amount of daily trading. How does a new exchange compete with big wigs like Bittrex/GDAX? These are huge giants who have been in the game for a long time, but they’re some-what obsolete. They’re greedy and only care about themselves, have horrible customer-service and poor communication within their community. Kucoin offers more than that, you can go talk to its active development team in their telegram, bombard them with any stupid question you like, and they will respond.
The token, the referral system are liquidity attraction tools, even if they only get 50% of all trading fees as income, if they can attract more liquidity than other exchanges and become competitive they can also be big, furthermore we as investors holding the token don’t lose anything at all, in fact we get a cut of the 50% of the trading fees they earn. I’ve already received my first dividend last night at 12am, it was basically nothing but that is considering that they only have a trading volume of $1.1m a day approximately, if not less. If that was $300m, the number of dividends anyone would get would be 3-fold.
What to take away from this; it seems like an MLM/Pyramid scheme on the surface, but the developers do not directly benefit from giving traders a huge cut of their profits, their main goal is liquidity and competition. The token value is also a long-term goal, I should reiterate that there is currently only a total supply of 200m which will over a course of a very long time will be reduced to 100m, but that will be a very long time from now, 100m of the current supply is locked up for 4 years for the team/2 for advisors. As well as, being locked up they aren’t eligible to receive any of the 50% cut of the trading fees until AFTER they are released.
I see this as potential big opportunity, purely because in the future I can see the possibility of this becoming a very competitive exchange within crypto-space. This is without a doubt a shill, I’m not partnered with them or anything, but I felt like I needed to clarify what a pyramid scheme is and the distinction between Kucoin’s marketing model and an actual MLM like Amway.
The dividend model (50% of trading fees are given to the KCS holders)
I’d like to also go through the dividend model, every night at UTC+8 12AM, they deposit directly into your wallet address your share of the 50% trading fees that they earned from transactions during the day. The current daily trading volume is around $1.1m, if Kucoin can achieve competitiveness and run up next to some of the biggest names; Bittrex with $350m daily trading volume, you can expect that all of the dividends you earn will go up 350x as well. I’d like to also point out that the more popular the coin is the more transactions there are thus; you are always earning income in the most popular coin, no matter what it may be.
More on the utility of Kucoin (White paper abstract)
To improve user involvement and exchange vitality, Kucoin is going to award incentive bonus, which equals to 50% of the total trading fees charged by the platform, to users who hold KCS in their accounts. Please note that this award proportion could be adjusted based on the actual situation in the future. The initial amount of KCS is 200 million among which 100 million owned by the team and angel investors would not be taken into account when calculating the bonus. In addition, we guarantee that at most 100 million KCS be calculated in the bonus plan during official buy-back and destruction. To obtain the daily bonus, users would need to deposit their KCS into Kucoin Platform. Then the platform will conduct accounting and award bonus based on to the KCS holdings in user’s account at 0:00 (UTC+8) that day and all the trading fees charged to the platform on the previous day.Then the bonus gained by users will directly put to their Kucoin accounts in the corresponding currency. For instance, If ETH-BTC cryptocurrency pair rate is 0.063 on the platform and the daily exchange volume is 30,000 BTC; based on the 0.1% rate from each side, the platform shall charge 30 BTC and 476 ETH as trading fees. The bonus for every 10,000 holdings would be 10,000 by 100,000,000 (0.01%). So that the daily bonus from this very cryptocurrency pair is 0.003 BTC and 0.0476 ETH (1 BTC and 17 ETH annually). Please note that this is ONLY the ETH-BTC exchange pair BONUS. Other than ETH-BTC, there are still various cryptocurrency pairs on the platform, which creates the trading fees in the corresponding currency and bonus based on the description above.
TRADING FEE DISCOUNT When placing orders to trade, holding a certain amount of KCS in Kucoin account can lower the trading fee. Details will be published through announcements. OTHER EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS When KCS holding reaches certain levels, users can enjoy special services like one-on-one investment consultation, customer service Fast-Pass, etc. 
Full transcript of my Q&A with the Operation Director Kent Li
Two concerns were put fourth by some of my readers;
How do we know that we are actually receiving the 50% that you are guaranteeing us? In the whitepaper it is stated that the 50% of trading fees traders on the platform will earn is subject to change, what is the reasoning behind this? Kent Li — Kucoin — Operation Director, [22.10.17 00:35] Firstly, the users are actually getting 50%. The trading volume of each pair is transparent, people can get the data from the web page or through our public API endpoints. So there’s nowhere to hide if we cheated on this, people can easily calculate their Kucoin Bonus based on the formula we described in the whitepaper. Kent Li — Kucoin — Operation Director, [22.10.17 00:39] Secondly, many people have discussed our referral system. The reason why we design is like what you have said, to attract more people to come trade on Kucoin. Because we’re new comers in this industry even in China, we have to do everything to attract new users and become competitive in the space, that’s why we share 90% of our trading fees to the users. We want to survive. And we are working our asses off to achieve this. USER, [22.10.17 01:15] Thanks for that clarification! I’d also like to inquire about the rate of dividends that investors earn, currently it is at 50% and in the whitepaper has been stated that it will be subject to change, how long is the 50% bonus going to last? Some of my readers had told me that it will only be for around 6 months, you intend on reducing the income as your exchange becomes more popular correct? USER, [22.10.17 01:16] Also, what is the purpose of the income page in the “Assets” menu, currently all fields are blank, what are your plans for that? Kent Li — Kucoin — Operation Director, [22.10.17 01:18] Hi, we do have a plan to reduce the ratio of Kucoin Bonus. It will stay at 50% for at least 6 months, and it will be adjusted gradually, eventually it will be 15% after two or three years. As you know building and maintaining a high volume exchange will cost a lot of money. “Income” currently contains the GAS reward if you hold NEO on Kucoin, Income is also passive revenue if users hold certain kind of asset on Kucoin. USER, [22.10.17 01:19] In regards to the calculation in the white paper, it may also be beneficial to have a dividends tab in the assets page to show users how their dividends are being earned and the calculation behind. (I understand that this is a lot of work, and you guys are extremely busy, these things definitely do not get done overnight so do not feel pressured at all) Kent Li — Kucoin — Operation Director, [22.10.17 01:20] Ah, actually we have a better plan Kent Li — Kucoin — Operation Director, [22.10.17 01:21] There will be a dashboard or report page for users, it will display their profolio on Kucoin, their daily gains & losses, sort of this kind of things USER, [22.10.17 01:21] Thank you for that clarification! I’d know like to move onto some suggestions from my readers on the exchange, talking to a great many traders, they all agree that the exchange is better than up to 80% of the exchanges available. It’s intuitive, innovative and user friendly. Some points that were brought up were; the non-existence of a “scroll bar” for the order book, which one of your other developers already said you were after more elegant solutions. Others would be including the placement of the chart, some people were saying that it was a little too small. USER, [22.10.17 01:22] If you would like to share any plans with me, I would love to include it in my article, and if you could retweet it or pin it on your twitter. I’m sure it will bring a lot of people piece of mind. USER, [22.10.17 01:24] It’s definitely understandable that making sudden changes to the UI of the exchange isn’t something to be done over a night, so I’ll definitely highlight that, I think this is just an important step in gaining the trust of the community. Kent Li — Kucoin — Operation Director, [22.10.17 01:25] Yeah, things have to done step by step

blackcoin price definitely being manipulated

i wasnt sure before this but there is an obvious pattern in the charts. I threw in another 5 btc and i saw an immediate sell down. I checked the chart and sure enough every large buy was followed by a sell(almost immediate). So somebody or a few people are clearly doing the same thing over and over. They arent pumping they are throttling. The weak hands shake and they buy gradually. They wait for a large buy (anything over 10-20 btc) and sell from outside the orderbook. This isnt a theory its a fact. So if you all want to know why the price dropped the answer is simple. Weak hands, low hash rate in the pool and the delay for good news to hit. Dont be suprised if this is taken advantage of until the good news hits.
Two new charts show that they are also making sell orders 20% lower than the orderbook. Its really insane what they are trying to do. They are deliberately trying to crash the coin now. Next time you see a 42 bitcoin order, buy it and stop their bullshit make them pay to get back in.
http://i.gyazo.com/6c8c2c669160dcf62c1840e5566972eb.png Sell walls 20% below orderbook. 100% proof this may have been going on for weeks unnoticed!! Very curious to see the history after the spike! More info on this is appreciated and share this thread let investors know.

NEW! Chart showing it happening an excellent example. Take a look at the chart its been going on for weeks. You heard it here first folks. It happened AGAIN:
http://s30.postimg.org/4qa28c14x/Untitled.jpg
Moral of the story... buy this coin dont be a weak investor. Keep them hands STRONG baby. Dont daytrade this coin when people are doing this just buy+hold and buy more. Blackcoin was meant to be held and used not daytraded. Hopefully the pool gets over 10TH and this behavior will not be possible.
14 dislikes and counting so looks like the bastards dont like being called out on their strategy afraid you wont trap weak hands throw a 300K wall up again and sell what happens. This is why I promote the pool so much to stop this behavior (since it was only possible after the price rose)
NOTE: A buy wall of 300BTC will end their bullshit. And just let that wall creep up.

[SFLY] OKCoin "glitch" drops the price of litebutt to pennies for few minutes, someone allegedly abuses it to get tons of normal butts – will OKC be the next Gox?

See the chart for yourself: https://bitcoinwisdom.com/markets/okcoin/ltccny at 2015-11-10 08:00 UTC, or see this image I blockchained from someone else: https://i.imgur.com/l2Z88x2.jpg
"Normal" price is in two digits, but it dropped to 1 CNY for a moment. Or even less, if this post is to be believed: https://np.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/3s9uvd/okcoin_not_processing_withdrawals_litecoin_drops/
/litecoin discusses: https://np.reddit.com/litecoin/comments/3s96j6/look_okcoin_millions_of_litecoins_dumped/
Something bad happened. Confirmed reports someone bought at 1.5CNY, sold at 19CNY, bought BTC and withdrew then had their account locked.
OkCoin lost the entire orderbook for LTC, some 200Mil of LTC traded in <30minute bar. Liquidation occurred to 0.01CNY and now OkCoin is trying to reverse trades. They are in the process of altering their history right now with the charts miraculously reversed to 19CNY.
OKCoin is trying to assure bagholders that they'll fix everything and reimburse everyone... by posting an announcement on a subreddit for a different type of butt: https://np.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/3sb0dx/regarding_okcoin_ltccny_price_error_resuming/
On November 10, 2015 from 16:15 to 16:17 local Beijing time, due to turbulence in the datacenter network, a hidden bug triggered the trading system, and a few off market transactions on LTC/CNY affected a small number of users.
To update, all affected user positions have been restored and we have resolved the bug. All users in LTC/CNY who were affected will be contacted during day on November 11, 2015.
I wonder if they manage to get out of it, since some speculate:
Someone sold millions LTC for about 100,000 BTC from OKCoin yesterday. Then withdrew the BTC before OKCoin could freeze their account. OKCoin is most likely insolvent.
Will OKCoin fold? We're in fact seeing symptoms of goxititis:
And when are you going to process my BTC and LTC withdrawals? I already tried to call the number and there is no response. Also no response on my emails??
But there are more symptoms: https://np.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/3s9uvd/okcoin_not_processing_withdrawals_litecoin_drops/cwvhq8q
I'll add this to my list of OKCoin fuckery, the list for the uninitiated:
OKCoin LTC market has freak crash to 1.00cny (sure the woodchipper got some good sacrifices there) OKCoin margin calls nearly every trader, promises compensation, and then doesn't actually give any compensation. OKCoin scams users OKcoin freezes its own platform, then Margin calls its customers Mass exodus at OKCoin, something is brewing OKCoin futures settlement issue CZ's Statement Regarding the Dispute Between OKCoin and Roger Ver Truth Behind the Dispute Between Roger Ver and OKCoin. Email leaks confirm OKcoin asked Roger Ver to help engage in Money Laundering, Roger refused. OKCoin no longer managing Bitcoin.com due to contract conflict with domain owner A warning about okcoin "Largest" Bitcoin Exchange Caught Faking Trades
Of course, OKCoin being based in China, not Japan, and fucking things up in discrete, flashy events instead of continuously, may survive a bit longer than Gox. We'll see.

Why we maybe we need a margin liquidity bubble watch.

*sorry I messed up the title, cant change it now :/ *
Anyway some of you may remember back a few months ago I used to post daily reports on bitfinex liquidity stats, sorry I've not kept them up but I've moved away from day trading for a while (at least margin trading) and I guess I don't feel like I know the market as well as I once did to feel comfortable posting advice that may lead people astray but when considering what position to take for the next week or so I've started to become very worried by a combination of declining price and ever increasing number of long positions, so much so I want to at least explore and put on record the possibility that we may see a flash crash or sharp decline because to me the fact nobody is closing positions could mean we are getting recklessly bullish.
Ok so looking at the figures for last month we can see the amount of long positions has increased sharply from May 20th onwards which is when the latest price rises started. We went went from 16million in swaps to 24.5 million today which makes for 8.5 million spent on bitcoin during the recent price rise period.
overlaping the total USD liquidity figures from bfxdata.com and the price shows they look very similar up until the recent decline
Now what worries me is that the total number of active swaps has continued upward despite the price decline this week which means more than likely a lot of people are holding out for a recovery or are fully sold on this bubble cycle theory which is very dangerous if the price continues this slow bleeding decline. If you consider at the current price anyone who bought on margin after june 1st is now most likely in a loss making position and paying 0.2% interest on it each day/1.4% weekly which quickly adds up over time.
Chart of price showing $620 resistiance and what I think may be a trigger price for either recovery or crash
Now if I just consider the amount of bitcoin that was bought on margin since the 1st of June when the price was $620 and similar to where we are now, we went from roughly 20 million in USD swaps to 24.5 million now with an averagre price of $650 that leaves 4500000/$650= 7000 bitcoin bought above $620 which are currently in a loss making position.
Edit**
Thanks to pdrayton for running the math to predict at what price people who bought at the high of $685 would get margin callled which shows if someone bought in at the high of $685 using their 100% of their available margin and the 2.5x margin election, their liquidation price is $552.89. If they bought in at $650 (where we spent more time), their liquidation price is $524.64.
I'm watching for a break of the $620 resistance which could lead us down the 590's where I would be very concerned about the sudden panic closure of a lot of long positions and up to 7000 bitcoin being dumped in a short space of time which could and if it did happen most likely would set us up for a flash crash where one position being force liquidated will drop the price so it triggers the next and we see a cascading effect as happened a few months back where bitfinex actually halted trading as a protective measure to stop the price reaching the double digits as briefly happened on btc-e at the same time.
I don't mean to be bearish/bullish or anything (in fact I'm in fiat right now after buying some gold last week) but would like a discussion and maybe just gather the thoughts of different people in different positions right now and perhaps even predict an outcome but if I was a whale seeking out an opportunity to increase my position I'd be thinking $550 is also only 7000 bitcoins away ||Link to actual orderbook at which point we would see a wipeout of margin positions.
