Bitfinex Must Answer NY AG Allegations It Hid Over $800M In Lost Funds
Cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex must answer allegations by the state of New York that the Hong Kong-based company hid more than $800 million in losses of client and corporate funds, the New York Court of Appeals ruled Thursday (July 9), according to Bloomberg. Companies connected to Bitfinex have been accused by New York Attorney General Letitia James of the loss of commingled client and corporate funds, Bloomberg reported. The companies have insisted the cash was deposited with Crypto Capital Corp. Investigators at the U.S. Department of Justice alleged Crypto Capital provided shadow banking services to several cryptocurrency exchanges, including Bitfinex, Binance, Cex.io, Coinapult and QuadrigaCX. The Panamanian company was indicted for conspiracy to commit bank fraud and conspiracy to operate an unlicensed money transfer service, Cointelegraph reported. Crypto Capital President Ivan Manuel Molina Lee was arrested last year by Polish authorities on suspicion of laundering $350 million worth of funds from illegal proceeds and having ties to a global drug cartel, Cointelegraph reported. The company later collapsed. In April of 2019, cryptocurrencies saw a double-digit percentage drop in bitcoin. On April 26, the price of bitcoin fell to $5,092, down from levels earlier that week that topped $5,580. The slide came as James accused Bitfinex of covering up missing funds through illegal transactions to the tune of $850 million. Companies tied to Bitfinex also operate the stablecoin Tether, a conduit for trading in much of the cryptocurrency market globally, Bloomberg reported. The appeals court rejected the argument that Tether, with a market capitalization of more than $9 billion, is not a security or commodity and said the court has jurisdiction over its issuer. The justices also rejected the companies’ argument that since they are not based in New York or serve local traders, they shouldn’t be answerable to or have to produce certain documents for New York authorities, Bloomberg reported. The court said New York traders had used Tether, and some of the companies’ staff worked in New York. Originally posted ByPYMNTS Posted on July 9, 2020
AMA w/ Erik Voorhees (ShapeShift CEO) - Ask Me Anything
Hello Ethereum community! My name is Erik Voorhees. I've been in crypto since 2011, having worked as Head of Marketing at BitInstant, Founder and CEO of SatoshiDICE, CEO of Coinapult, and for the past three years, I've been CEO of ShapeShift, which is the world's fastest and easiest digital asset exchange (with no user accounts!). When I started ShapeShift, Ethereum was a tiny project, not even released yet. Many people thought I was crazy for building an exchange to help people trade between "alts," because Bitcoin was 99% of the market. But I saw that blockchain tokens would become an entirely new asset class, and that people would be innovating in all directions upon this new technology. ShapeShift started very small; I still remember getting excited in the fall of 2014 that we had $3,000 in volume in one day. But Ethereum's launch and rise has really demonstrated to the world the value of multiple blockchain assets, and specifically, tokens representing all manner of value. Today, ShapeShift processes over 15,000 customer orders per day, averaging around $10-15 million in value. As an early Bitcoiner, I believe strongly that many digital assets will become widespread in the market, and Ethereum has proven this to be the case thus far. Our recent product, Prism, is built entirely on Ethereum smart contracts, and hopefully helps prove this technology in front of a continually skeptical world. Ask me anything! EDIT: AMA is over, thank you everyone for the great questions. Sales pitch: get on the list to try out Prism at https://Prism.Exchange Also, THANK YOU ALL for building Ethereum. Take your role in this story seriously.
NanoSMS - A SMS interface to a Nano Wallet to open access to anyone with a 2G Mobile/Cell Phone
Summary: A SMS interface for a server based Nano wallet to provide access for 2G devices to the Nano network. The aim is to develop a community driven project with careful research, development and marketing with the aim to introduce Nano to a new demographic - the unbanked. Post is for discussion as well as request for volunteers to help out. Introduction: Cryptocurrencies currently focus on the rich, tech savvy western world, where the ‘crypto’ economies are controlled by individuals and large corporate organisations, ironically going against the original premise laid out by Satoshi Nakamoto (https://bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf). One demographic that currently are missing out (on both traditional and crypto finance) are the unbanked - individuals who don’t have access to any banking services and instead use cash or other forms of physical exchange. 38% of adults worldwide don’t have a method of managing their money (either a bank or using a mobile device) and looking at percentage banked at the top with 100% banked are Norway, Finland and Denmark while at the bottom is Turkmenistan 1.8%, Niger 3.5% and Madagascar 5.7% (Raconteur - Banking the Unbanked 2017). While cryptocurrencies seem like a perfect fit for these individuals there are still barriers to adoption, current cryptocurrencies require an internet connection and a powerful device such as a smart phone, laptop or desktop. There are currently 2 billion 2G phone subscriptions worldwide (Statista 2018) and yet they have minimal access to using cryptocurrencies in any form (see Appendix 1). SMS (Short Message Service) is a key component of 2G and in many developing nations this has already been used for a centralised financial system. A small number of cryptocurrencies have begun to explore providing a decentralised financial system for the unbanked. Nano, a near instant and feeless cryptocurrency based on a novel block lattice concept, (https://nano.org) and its passionate community have already made it their aim to support the unbanked with particular focus on South America. The currency itself is well know by its original name RaiBlocks particularly due to its faucet based distribution system that was able to provide an income to many people. Concept NanoSMS combines SMS and the Nano network by providing a SMS interface to a server backed Nano wallet. Users ‘text’ the wallet with commands, these are parsed, passed to the server which then manages the wallet and sends SMS replies. Users are identified by their telephone number as a unique number, these are directly linked to private keys held on the server. By identifying by telephone number its also possible to use telephone numbers as a transaction address therefore hiding the complex nano address system (however it also supports xrb_ and nano_ addresses). The current prototype works using a cloud based SMS gateway system (https://www.twilio.com) unfortunately these services aren’t available in the countries that might be targeted, this will need to be overcome either through partnership with these organisations to expand or through the development of our own SMS gateways. If a user has access to a smart phone then they should use a mobile wallet rather than NanoSMS as they retain their private keys. To provide ‘micro-liquidity’ to the system a internal faucet system could be used where users could claim a small amount of nano in return for an SMS advertisement. This would also provide a driving force behind adoption. Concept for NanoSMS, GSM/ESP32 may not be required if using a web service such as Twilio Challenges
National SMS Services
While there is often good coverage in most countries the reliability of the service may not be as good. Early tests in Brazil using the Twilio Beta program had delays of up to 24hrs before messages arrived.
SMS Gateway services such as Twilio aren’t available in many ‘target’ countries
If there is no established SMS Gateway Service it would be possible to create our own through the use of cheap hardware however this in itself creates security requirements.
Users wouldn’t hold their own private keys, legacy mobile/cell phones don’t have the ability to store and manage private keys (though this might need more research). Instead keys would need to be stored on a server which requires its own security model.
Spoofing SMS - this can be managed through the use of 2FA style authentication codes (you can spoof messages to NanoSMS but reply will go to original user - therefore a authentication code is included in reply messages which are required for send transactions).
Adoption - for the system to be worthwhile it would need to be used and adopted by a significant number of people.
SMS messages have a charge that needs to be covered
So, I locked the price of my bitcoins on my trezor last year when it was around $1500 each. I forgot to unlock em for the bullrun last year so now I can only sell my btc for 1500 each when they rempriced at 8k right now :s What can I do? Is there any way to undo this? Thanks in advance
October, 2011 was when I first heard about Bitcoin. A friend excitedly told me about it, that the price had crashed, that it could be 'mined', and that it could be purchased on exchanges. He didn't own any, but he found it interesting, and so did I. I was instantly interested in acquiring some coins. That the price had 'crashed' meant a buying opportunity, and I further saw it as evidence that the system was somehow free, and had a life of its own. I did not purchase any right away, regretfully, since the coins were about $3 each. I did do some initial research, calculating mining profitability, and looking into the process for buying coins on MtGox. I also read about the thefts and hacks. I found it intuitive these incidents were matters of endpoint-security, and not reflective of a systemic weakness. Yet I would have much to learn if I was to avoid becoming a victim. I continued to casually follow Bitcoin developments, and occasionally checked the price. Eight months later I came across a Timothy B. Lee article in Forbes that detailed the Bitcoin Richlist. It was my catalyst. It was time for a technical deep dive, time to understand what gave people the confidence to entrust millions of dollars of value to the system. Of everything I read that day, it wasn't the proof-of-work that seemed revolutionary, but simply the fact that a lost private key meant the coins would be irrecoverable. That signified Bitcoin put true and total control of money into the hands of users, and for that it was different and worthwhile. I decided to invest. All that was left was working out the mechanics of the transaction. And security. I was determined to not fall victim to a hack. An offline, paper wallet seemed like the easy choice. The price was in the $6 - $7 range. My first purchase went though MoneyGram and Coinapult, with MtGox as my receiving wallet. I put in $150, and got out $130 worth of coins. The price had surged in the few days since I decided to buy, to slightly under $10 per coin. I transferred the coins off of MtGox and onto my paper wallet, and it all felt very real! I wanted to buy more, and settled on CoinFloor to avoid the hefty fees I paid the first time. CoinFloor also allowed for instant fiat funding via a deposit at a bank teller window. Depositing $900 directly into a bank account was not without risk, but CoinFloor came through and the money was credited within 5 minutes. It all went flawlessly, and soon with my 100 coins spread out over a few different paper wallets, I could rest easy, without fear of a hack. Edit - I meant BitFloor, not CoinFloor I occasionally checked the price, tested out Satoshi Dice, and read a little more on the technical underpinnings, but other than that, I mostly forgot about my Bitcoin investment for the next 6 months. Then, in early 2013, I read about a few seed rounds in Bitcoin startups, and I saw pictures of a Bitcoin booth at the CES is Las Vegas. Somehow that booth, with the Bitcoin logo, made it all seem even more legitimate. The price had climbed into the $14 - $15 range, and I wanted more coin. CoinFloor had been hacked and was out of commission. This time I would use the Dwolla to MtGox method of funding. I found myself seriously regretting not having done Gox's verification the previous summer, as the price quickly climbed while I waited. When my verification finally cleared, the price had shot up to $19, and I transferred in several thousand dollars and bought another ~150 coins. Over the next few months I kept buying until the price crossed $100 per coin. In total, I had put in about $10,000 for 340 coins. I worked part-time, with an annual income of about $25,000, so that $10,000 felt substantial. The rise to $266 was exhilarating, as was the following surge to $1242. I mostly held, but sometimes tried to time the market with a small position (always 10% of holdings or less). I sold some coins the first time Bitcoin passed the $400 mark to recoup my initial investment, and I arbitraged when it was profitable. I lost a then-painful amount of fiat on MtGox, but not any coins. I held tight during the long bear market, with absolute confidence that the price would find a non-zero bottom, and it would only be up from there. The ecosystem was growing, the technology was maturing, and investment money was pouring in, and yet the price continued to decline. I would have loved to buy more, but doing so would have been truly irresponsible from a diversification perspective. I have largely stayed away alt-coins, but I did mine-and-dump those I found annoying, and mined and held the one that I found interesting - Ethereum. I reluctantly pushed some BTC into Ethereum early this year, which turned out to be a good move. In total, over the past 5 years, I have returned about 200x on my initial investment, in the current form of about 250 BTC, about 700 ETH and approximately $300k of other liquid assets. The result is almost identical to a pure buy-and-hold from the beginning, but I felt the need to hedge as valuations changed over time. I feel no pressure to sell more coins, though I probably would convert a few in the $20k-$40k range, prices which I have long seen as likely, if not inevitable. I am in my early 30's. Ask Me Anything! Though I might only have time to answer a few…
Any service to protect my bitcoins from price fluctuations ?
Small version : I want to know if there is any such service , which keep your bitcoins and returns them at same price you put them in . Long version : For example , at a particular date 5/6/2015 price of bitcoins is 300$(example) and i put my bitcoins in [That service] , then 4 months later the price of bitcoins is 260$ . And i need the money . So [That service] gives me the bitcoins worth 300$ , just at the price i deposited them , of course in the value of ongoing bitcoin . EDIT ( 12-1-2016) :Some very good answers here , and to the ones asking me why do i want to do that instead of just keeping the money in the form of USD . Reason : Suppose i receive a payment( a big one) from someone and i don't want to be taxed for that. So what i do is keep them in such services (of course its risky) and take the money whenever i want it , rather than pay the tax .

Imagine the unlikely scenario where the bitcoin price goes up to $100,000 in the coming months. How would it happen? Well, there would be a slow rise at first but after a while the curve would start to look parabolic. Let's say we reach a point where the price is going up $10,000 per day. Now, you're a savvy bitcoiner who has been through bubbles in the past. So you know the price is going to collapse back down again soon, and it might take another year before it reaches this level again. You make the decision to cash out. But you don't want to do it slowly. If you wait until tomorrow, the price may crash back down. So you want to sell everything all at once. How do you do it? Lets say you're holding 21 bitcoin. Part two of this question, and my actual reason for posting: what accounts should I open now to prepare for this? What verifications should I make at those accounts?
best way to quickly convert large amount of bitcoin into USD?
I was lucky in sports betting and I'd like to withdraw a good amount. (approx $7-12k in USD) I'm hearing the most reliable way to get money out of sportsbook these days is via bitcoin. I'm relatively new to BTC, but I have made a few transactions in the past. I have a wallet, Circle account, and Coinbase account, although the last two have deposit limits on them. I don't want to keep too much money in the sportsbooks (don't trust them entirely) or in BTC (due to recent price volatility). What should I do to quickly get money from the books into my US Bank account? I'm thinking Sportsbook -> Bitcoin Wallet -> Circle -> Bank Account. Does that sound right? I'm just worried I might hit some unexpected limits or blockages along the way. Advice?
The Creeps of Creeptocurrency - a public information guide (updated)
The Faces of Bitcoin - An Information Guide for the Public Reddit CEO Yishan Wong once said: ‘"Without being too inflammatory, the user base for bitcoin is basically crazy libertarians who are increasingly poorly informed about currency systems and macroeconomics.’ So let’s list the buttiness of the public faces of Bitcoin for all the people new to crypto. The public should know who and what they are dealing with. Please expand the list and distribute widely Part One Satoshi Nakamoto - the economically illiterate founder of Bitcoin. Having cobbled together various older ideas (he did NOT invent blockchain) he acted like he had created something new and foolishly released it to the public in a beta state that could not be easily retracted or upgraded. He was so embarrassed by his creation that he didn’t want to reveal his identity. The price of decentralisation is nobody gives a shit about your leadership and you can’t be a real project manager. Whenever he was losing control of Bitcoin he would freak out and ask developers to stop trying to innovate or tamper with his project. Eventually he was so frustrated by decentralisation that he abandoned his project. Erik Voorhees - is co-founder of the bitcoin company Coinapult, worked as Director of Marketing at BitInstant, and was founder and partial owner of the bitcoin gambling website Satoshi Dice. He was fined by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for an unregistered stock offering related to SatoshiDice. Charlie Shrem - co-founded the now-defunct startup company BitInstant, and is a founding member of the Bitcoin Foundation, formerly serving as vice chairman. In 2017, he joined Jaxx as its director of business and community development. In December 2014 he was sentenced to two years in prison for aiding and abetting the operation of an unlicensed money-transmitting business related to the Silk Road marketplace. He was released from prison around June 2016. Giancarlo Devasini - was previously fined for running a software counterfeiting business selling pirate Microsoft warez before becoming chief bean counter and Tether manager at Bitfinex. The most recent article in the Italian media can be found below. It covers Tether and the exchange’s ‘banking’ issues: http://ilsole24ore.com/solemobile/main/art/notizie/2017-12-18/paradisi-fiscali-attacchi-hacker-e-blocchi-storia-bitfinex-regina-bitcoin-212359.shtml Max Keiser - is an American broadcaster and film maker. Though he is not a financial expert he hosts Keiser Report, a financial program broadcast on Russian twisted alternative facts state media channel RT that features heterodox economics theories. Keiser is the creator, co-founder, and former CEO of HSX Holdings/Hollywood Stock Exchange. This technology allows traders to exchange virtual securities, such as "MovieStocks" and "StarBonds", with convertible virtual currency, the "Hollywood Dollar". It exists in its own parallel reality separate from Hollywood’s own creative accounting practices.

These are the easiest wallets to use and the most convenient. Most websites will allow for 2-factor authentication through Google, text message, or Authy. This adds a great layer of protection.

We always keep some of our Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and other Altcoins in web-based crypto wallets so we can easily day trade and move funds around.
What is a Cryptocurrency Desktop Wallet?
These are great wallets for storing cryptocurrency. You don't have the concern of losing your wallet like a hardware cryptocurrency wallets.
