Btc markets poli downCryptocurrency market collapsing with BTC down 4% in a matter of hours after police seizes Bithumb
But that nearly doubled from the previous year. It is widely assumed that some of the people buying Bitcoin on legitimate trading exchanges are doing so to skirt national laws. The rise in black market sales is particularly notable in because global authorities took down two of the biggest illegal online markets.
New markets quickly popped up to fill the void. In addition to the online black markets, the authorities have been aggressively targeting cryptocurrency schemes. But the amount of Bitcoin going into fraudulent activity still hit a new high.
Illegal transactions have been a central part of the Bitcoin story since the first online black market, the Silk Road , helped give people a reason to begin using Bitcoin in Bitcoin was useful for the Silk Road because the structure of Bitcoin, without any central authority, makes it possible for a user to create a Bitcoin wallet and use the tokens without registering an identity with anyone. There was hope among some in the Bitcoin community that the cryptocurrency would find a broader use as electronic cash, as the inventor of Bitcoin originally posited.
As the value of Bitcoin increased, big companies like Expedia and Stripe announced that they would begin taking Bitcoin. But when users realized that Bitcoin had many drawbacks as a way of making purchases — like being slower and more expensive than traditional cash — there was little uptake. Bitcoin aficionados now believe the cryptocurrency is more useful as a new kind of alternative asset, like gold. Many people on Wall Street have bought into that idea, and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the owner of the New York Stock Exchange both allow traders to buy and sell derivatives based on Bitcoin.
Trading, however, has been tepid. Some believed that the digital token might prove to be popular in countries like Venezuela or Argentina, where local currencies are even less stable than Bitcoin. But in those places, interest has recently fallen off, data gathered by the Block , a research firm, suggests. Bitcoin prices and trading did spike in the middle of last year, soon after Facebook announced its intention to create the Libra cryptocurrency. But it has become clear that Libra might face just as many legal difficulties as Bitcoin.
I think you are right. Btcm will likely continue onwards but in the world of cypto exchanges have always been the weak point.
Unless you are trading get your coins into a wallet you control. I believe bpay is fine. Always own your private keys and remove all crypto off exchanges once bought. You can buy a ledger nano s that supports btc ltc eth and many other coins. They can be purchased from the official site. But you can set up an eth wallet for now which also supports erc20 tokens like omg zrx for storage via myetherwallet.
No worries man. No worries. Yes, sounds like you have it Sussed. For under 1k you can wait for the ledger. Then load up and transfer it all at once when that arrives. Ledger nano s supports all the coins you have purchased. Keep reading and stay informed. Never let the outside noise affect your decisions. Some people will tell you that the fee situation is temporary, but there is a good chance fees will never be low again on BTC.
BTC is fucked Bitcoin Cash is the real Bitcoin now. Bitcoin Cash has a single point of failure which is Jihan Wu. The Chinese government can lean on Jihan Wu at any time. I think just leave your crypto on the exchange.
It's not that risky. Then when your hardware wallet Ledger Nano S or Trezor comes, set them up and then move the crypto from the exchange into the hardware wallets. Nice advice, spot on. I'd go a Nano S myself. I have a Trezor, love it but Nano S supports many more coins. Why people still buy BTC? Its useless now due to high fees, and the Core devs and Blockstream have done all this shit on purpose.
BTC do have plans in place to address these issues e. Whether it goes through smoothly is yet to be seen, but when investing, the solution to uncertainty is diversification. You cannot scale Bitcoin by not using Bitcoin system and end up using a completely different, and centralised, system. Get that into your head. Lightning is not Bitcoin. Unfortunately BCH is a fraud. Many have fallen for it as they have very effective Trump style social media campaigns. Projection much?
Please explain how a decentralized ledger with the same pedigree as BTC is fraudulent? SegWit is a hack of Bitcoin and an Altcoin does not follow digital chain of signatures rule of Bitcoin system. Might cost you a little in network fees, but better than risking it all on BTC Market's future right now. Might well be nothing to worry about, but why would you keep funds there when they are possibly at risk?
Forced account closures from banks isn't a new thing in the crypto-biz world.. This is then followed by a period of time given by the bank, to allow the customer "sufficient time" to make other banking arrangements. Unfortunately, there is no specification on how much "sufficient time" should equal to, so it is extremely easy for a bank's legal team to worm their way out of this, if they give say 2 minutes notice. Judging by the reaction of BTCMarkets, very minimal time was given to make alternative arrangements - if at all!
It almost seems like the account was closed without their knowledge something, which unfortunately, the bank is legally allowed to do, if they can justify that the account poses an immediate risk to their system or services, or they believe the account is being used in an illegal matter. My account is fine They probably will recoup losses from the locked accounts? I don't see how this could be the case, at least not if you control the private key of the addresses you send to.
All addresses and their private keys are valid for either blockchain, so you can't send BCH to a BTC Core address, as it'll just get sent to the same address, just on the BCH blockchain. Mind you, it's not a good idea to do this anyway, since importing the private key of either the BTC Core address or the equivalent BCH address renders the address on the other blockchain insecure.
Bet to keep entirely separate addresses for each fork. Don't know anything about armoury. It takes about 30 seconds to create a new wallet though, so not sure what the issue is.
This is pretty bad if true. At first I thought it might just be competition pushing bad news but after looking at the twitter posts it's not looking good. I've done one Poli payment on 22nd, my bank shows it as gone through, today I see same amount back in my account, I have no idea where it came from, then after I get email from BTC Markets, do I see it was from their bank, refusing to do the transfer.
Now my account is locked Something is dodgy here, CoinSpot now allowing new deposits now till sometimes into , now this shit No surprise at all. This place would be better without this never ending debate from vested people, hopefully the mods keep it out of here, if people want to argue this stupid shit forever they can easily do it in one of the two subs.
The miners got what they wanted, all the layer 2 people got what they wanted, move the fuck on and make your coin the best it can be instead of being petty.
Yeah, I know them both all too well. Everyone should know this. Any place someone involved or wants to get involved in Bitcoin, should know the origins of Bitcoin, its intention, the scaling history We need to put a stop to that About two exchanges changed it to Bcash, then one of them, I think Bitfinex, changed it back after a week or two. And what exactly do "bcash fanboys" deserve? Are you seriously 12? This whole bashing of BCH is so fucking petty and ridiculous.
Bitstamp, bitfinex and all major exchanges call it Bitcoin Cash and not bcash. You are not only wrong but very demonstrably wrong. Says the guy stuck in the Blockstream bubble. Maybe if you step outside it, you could see that if Bitcoin was released today, it would be laughed out of the room. I seriously hope btc crashes due to what those assholes at core have done. Dumbass, you are fucked over in your head, I don't go into the porn subs,, my head is not fucked over like yours. Keep the teenage name drama out of this sub please.
You've already drawn one person in to start trolling you and fallen for it. What teenage name drama? I am not the one using derogative propaganda labels. And if you are referring to me calling them bastards, well they are not in literal meaning, but you know this already. My account was locked from this, has anyone successfully unlocked their account following the BPay steps provided by BTCMarkets?
Was your account reinstated in the same state it was in before or did the BPay payment reappear as AUD? I just had mine unlocked, I think they are overwhelmed.
