    @Bitfinexed People trading at @bitfinex must be liquidating on a daily basis very large amounts of USD, if this was a real problem, wouldn't it have shown already? I used to worry about this, but I don't know anymore

    @RamenofBinance Okex is all pure fake volume. If i have to trust one i go with bitfinex hands down.

    @ummjackson @florianfink It is pretty simple. People send money to Bitfinex. They withdraw tether from Bitfinex. Bitfinex send USD to tethers bank account. Tether issues new tethers to Bitfinex. If there was anything shady, don’t you think the CFTC would have followed up on the subpoenas?

    Not sure I understand the logic of the margin players on Bitfinex, the bear-side is incredibly crowded. Either they know something we don't and are delaying the squeeze with all they got, or they are panicking and increasing shorts to pressure down and create a panic sell-off.

    @soleil_dusoir9 @SEC_Enforcement @CFTC @TheJusticeDept The regulators works for the banks. It would be a smart move to leave the cryptocurrencies dropping to the cheapest price they can get "organically". Then, when we will hit a bottom and the price won't move down, neither up, it will be the time to crack down tether and bitfinex.

    @PhilakoneCrypto Phil, i saw u mentioned about logging in into bitfinex to show the level 2, actually you dont have to login to see it, just click 'view demo' at the login page and you'd be good to go.

    @nasirjones007 I'd well see a wave up to squeeze this shitload of Shorts on Bitfinex in order to close 2 gaps down on the daily/H4 chart of the CME #Bitcoin Futures... You opinion on that?

  • RamenofBinance
    ๑ RAMEN ๑ (@RamenofBinance) reported

    @CryptoQF Yes it did. Here is the story: Over issued tether to prop up price - bitfinex selling bitcoin to real usd to fill up the tether deficit void. - price dumped back down. One reason SEC rejected etf was high speculation of tether manipulation

  • Cr1p70G
    CryptoG (@Cr1p70G) reported

    Remember $crypto twitter - long supports and short resistances. Not the other way around. $btc hasn't even broken the major support yet, but #bitcoin's shorts have already overtaken longs... ...Cmon short squeeze!! #btcusd $btcusd #bitfinex #kraken #bloodinthestreets #fomo

    @bccponzi @Cryptoniac85 @warsame2412 @jeremy_mcalpine Bitfinex alone can support $500,000 - $1.2million per trade in this terrible market and slippage would only be $20-$40 difference slippage cost. And that’s just with BTC... Dex typically won’t trade more than $100,000 per trade. The slippage doesn’t hurt it. You are wrong.

  • shawnster22

    @rwilday @Tether_to Absolutely...i still think the fears are over cautious, i don't think a company Bitfinex with a multi billion dollar gravy train, a team of lawyers and regulators breathing down their neck would falsely state they are backed 1:1..could be wrong though

  • willnoon
    willnoon (totally giving away bitcoin) (@willnoon) reported

    @sawickipedia I mean, I don’t even know how it technically works... can you buy all the tether from kraken? Tether / Bitfinex can only issue more so in theory kraken could sell out, how would price not rise if the demand were there but not supply?

    @CryptoGooseEsq @rogerkver @maxkeiser @KimDotcom @BKBrianKelly @aantonop @opskinsgo @blockchain @BitcoinCom @BitPay @coinbase @xapo I’m going to predict the DOJ and it’s overseas counterparts to make several arrests and shut down Tether, Bitfinex and other exchanges that accept and use Tether by end of 2018.

  • BigKevMcCarty
    Kevin McCarty 🇺🇸 (@BigKevMcCarty) reported

    What do you think would happen if Tether pulled a Bitconnect? My take: -Maximum salt from anyone holding -Big problems at Bitfinex, possibly requiring a bailout from traders -Short term (3 month) lull in trading volume as industry faces "scam" image again -Bullish on BitMEX

  • WealthHustler
    Aniket Patel $25KbyDec2018⚡ (@WealthHustler) reported

    @monkeymanpiper @_cryptonomic_ Value Cryptos is kind of a hard debate, but going low has less chance and can only happen if exchanges like Bitfinex and Binance goes down/gets hacked attack at a same time.

  • erjeetjeh
    Robert-Jan den Haan (@erjeetjeh) reported

    @RieberTorkild @KyleSGibson @brockpierce ... What didn't make it into that story is that USD on Bitfinex is really just a digit, you don't have the actual USD. Depositing USDT adds to your USD balance on Bitfinex. As long as Bitfinex is solvent, which kinda implies the money behind USDT exists, there is no problem...

  • ValCoins
    Val Me (@ValCoins) reported

    @crypto_birb It did on tradingview only - when u check the chart on the bitfinex exchange ... it is still there ... I am not sure what is wrong exactly but more like a tradingview problem ..

    2018 #bitcoin low, 5774.7 #bitfinex october 1 we touch around 13300 and we go back down looking for a new support. August 13 week is a reversal week. We found our low. Maximum down we go now is 5820. #btc #crypto #crypt0 #buysalt. 10x by EOY

    How ridiculous is this? Look at the 1-minute candles at Bitfinex on #Bitcoin wisdom? They are predominantly green! If you didn't see the price, you would guess it's UP...not down $200!!!!

    Instinct (@instinctxbt) reported

    @cosmopolitanbtc Traditional markers are only open during set hours. Any trading that occurs in after hours doesn't appear on the charts, so you get gaps. Crypto is 24/7 so it doesn't have that issue. Since this only appears on Bitfinex either the exchange was down or there was a liquidity issue

    @_matterall Keep in mind that despite dense buys around 6k a careful manipulation can deleverage large part of open interest on Bitmex, Okex and Bitfinex and we can see a flash crash to 3k, 2k maybe 1k... Protocol error can do that as well BTC could also go down forever I'm not very long

    @HsakaTrades Shorts overtook longs (at least on bitfinex). Wouldn’t be surprised to see a few squeezes before a hard push down

  • Zilliqator
    Zilliqator (@Zilliqator) reported

    @ScryptOhio @CoinbasePro It's bizarre. I noticed a massive buy wall on Bitfinex a while ago, and that didn't shut them down. What is the real reason behind this? Coincidence that ETC is supposed to be added soon.

  • jamestmccue
    James McCue (@jamestmccue) reported

    @Tr0llyTr0llFace @Bitfinexed Well if you’re right I lose my money. But you’re a bag holder as well or you wouldn’t talk about it. It’s the ability to short a relatively small cap in it’s infancy that’s the problem. One day the cancers of tether, Bitfinex and bitmex will be removed and btc will have worth.

  • Cryptonym
    Cryptonym (@Cryptonym) reported

    @BigCheds Don't let a minor rsi cool off change your view. Where else is it going to go? Short of another massive Tether pump by bitfinex, it has nowhere to go but down and the sooner it gets there the sooner this shitty bear market can end.

    @CryptoChoe @bitfinex only problem is slow withdrawals, apart from that, it is the best exchange. @bitfinex says many times withdrawal complete, and no trx on block chain, tickets xxx @BittrexExchange has the fastest withdrawals, sometimes i receive my Polymath coins in 10 sec, 0.3$ fee!

    Wenn Mewn Esq. (@WennMewn) reported

    @IchimokuScholar Haha, yeah I assumed it was subjective. Sometimes that “bit” can keep you out of a bad trade. The OCO order on bitfinex is useful but doesn’t solve this problem. I guess it’s not in exchange’s interest to provide this as they profit a lot from stray wicks. Cheers!

  • walshyt2
    Martin Walsh (@walshyt2) reported

    @TraderScarface I think just below 5k, is very likely. Weekly - 28th Aug 2017, we hit a high of 4,970 on Bitfinex but we never retested it. Weekly 6th Nov we only tested down to 5,400.

    if you are getting laggy from all the action on #bitfinex be sure to reload your webpages so you don't get an error on your next trade. it really helps with the lag if you've kep them open for a while. #bitcoin.

    diarrhea_of_a_made_man (@coiner_lol) reported

    @catgoggles Bitfinex opened above 50MA but this could have been a last minute price manipulation. Anyway a small bounce was technically stongly needed. StochRSI was at zero 3 days in a row. 4h RSI already hidden bearish divergence. Gap to support closed but I think we break red channel down

  • koalakeeper
    TradeWanker (@koalakeeper) reported

    @Crypto_Joke @tradingview It's a bitfinex issue. Note how the market dipped during the absence, which is a common occurence when bfx or bitmex go down. Either the exchange as a whole went down or their API stopped responding.

  • koalakeeper
    TradeWanker (@koalakeeper) reported

    Added to my $BTCUSD long on the dip (for some reason it dipped when bitfinex went down) and so far that's looking like a sensible decision.

    Compared to yesterday, BTC's price took another dip, falling down to $7.050 (Bitfinex), accounting for -3.5%. This trend might continue for next few days, as Bakkt was announced, meaning that in near future, the price might take a leap. @Bakkt #cryptotrade #cointrends
