  • PPTheRobot PP The Robot (@PPTheRobot) reported

    $BGP move down detected. (#Yobit -6.67%) I bought 4762 at 0.00000140 $BTC - These big moves from Tether Treasury to Bitfinex might be significant.

  • QContrarian QuantContrarian🛢🦑 (@QContrarian) reported

    For the coin-bros..based on forensic analysis the whole bull run of 2017 was a fraud caused by a single whale 🐳 manipulating #Tether via #bitfinex. The global hegemonic fiat currency turned out to be fraud. When the SEC hunts them down its game over #blockchain #bitcoin #Crypto

  • btchomero Homero [BTC] (@btchomero) reported

    To me it looks like Bitcoin is getting stronger here. I see lots of positives in all aspects... The basis has been negative for quite some time, longs are going down (on Bitfinex they are not 'real', someone is trying to fool the market) and the price has room up to 8-8.4k

    @TraceMayer @TechBalt @coinbase @BitMEXdotcom @Bitstamp @bitfinex @krakenfx @BittrexExchange @coincheck_en @Poloniex Last time I moved my bitcoin off binance to my trezor all my bitcoin was stolen. My trading and HODL stash was stolen right off my Trezor. I no longer listen to the noise and just trade the asset. So whatever... to the moon 🌝 storage will always be the issue when it comes to BTC

  • jonf3n jonf3n (@jonf3n) reported

    @WINC_ev @emzy @bitfinex @udiWertheimer Note: exchanges are not working with real bitcoin transactions (they hold the bitcoin in their addresses / lightning channels and tell you your "balance"), so, for them, it is just a database update (aka instant).

  • onerk10 onek (@onerk10) reported

    @FatihSK87 The problem is bitfinex is not dominating the market anymore..

  • CurrencyTycoon Currency Tycoon (👍EIP-1559) (@CurrencyTycoon) reported

    @Excellion @bitfinex @BTSEcom DEXes and DAOs won't be shutting down

  • KoinKnight KoinKnight (@KoinKnight) reported

    Dump in BTC: Price of #BTC went down from 7437.72 to 7201.2 USDT by 3.18% in 10 mins at #Bitfinex.

  • bourbonni Nico ⚡️ (@bourbonni) reported

    @bitfinex great job adding Lightning Network. Unfortunately the implementation is far from optimal when it comes to withdrawing the money, whitelisting addresses and all that validation does not make sense with invoices that expire after some time. I hope you can fix that soon

  • dao_chairman ChairmanDai (@dao_chairman) reported

    @bitfinex WTF is the deal with Bitfinex Support, are they not capable of using the Ethereum blockchain in all its simplicity to track down a missing deposit. I supplied a Tx I’d that confirms delivery of my DAI, but no record of the deposit in Bitfinex...

  • btcbenbee Ben Van Hool (@btcbenbee) reported

    @0conftx @bitfinex Yes the payment only takes a second. Creating the payment, opening the LN wallet, paying and getting it confirmed by @bitfinex all together probably around 20 seconds. After some training I'll get this down to 5 seconds.

  • Nickxbt Nick (@Nickxbt) reported

    Before I hate Bitfinex because of tether issue. But after lightning and bitrefill I love Bitfinex.

  • kixunil MⒶrtin HⒶboⓋštiak [BEFORE! Jan/3➞₿🔑∎, LNP/BP] (@kixunil) reported

    @marcomonaco83 @nomadtrader1 @bitfinex During the price spikes, people will use LN for arbitrage, then when situation calms down, they will rebalance off-lightning.

  • Coin_and_Peace Koji Higashi (@Coin_and_Peace) reported

    Interesting read on how exchanges can/should adopt Lightning Network through Channel factories to mitigate the "dead" coin problem and push the LN adoption. Relevant to yesterday's @bitfinex LN integration news as well.

  • JimmyRagosa Jimmy Ragosa (@JimmyRagosa) reported

    @hasufl @haydenzadams @spencernoon @bitfinex @paoloardoino 1/2 You would basically need to deploy a new version of the smart contract with the fix and either set-up a migration contract (SAI-to-DAI-style) all the while coordinating communication with exchanges and such to support the change.

  • CashEveryone Bitcoin Cash 4 everyone (@CashEveryone) reported

    Calling it now. @bitfinex will have users lose funds due to #LightningNetwork in 2020 and then Bitfinex gets shut down by regulators

    @SayCryptoAgain @bitfinex I posted the invoice above. You can check. I paid from my server.. not 3rd party wallet provider.

  • zarkinfrood zarkinfrood (@zarkinfrood) reported

    @paoloardoino @theonevortex @bitfinex So do hashmaps, but in reality they cause more problems then they solve

  • lawmaster Larry Cermak (@lawmaster) reported

    @3L3C70 @paoloardoino @bitfinex @Blockstream LN is basically untrackable these days because of privacy features. So that would be a waste of time. And I haven't done Liquid analysis in a while because the only data provider shut down their site 5 months ago. So I need to figure out a way to pull the data myself

  • AldersonBSV Elliotˢᵛ (@AldersonBSV) reported

    @CryptoParadyme @binance @bitfinex @cz_binance That's a decent amount of money for a lot of people....cuts on-chain transactions down heaps too. It's definitely an added benefit for now.

  • yassine_diraa El 🐻 Yassine 🎣 💎 (@yassine_diraa) reported

    @mdudas @bitfinex Bitcoin is just a different animal, whenever the price is down there always a fundamentally technical advancement, there is just no asset class like Bitcoin

  • OptimistLib OptimistLi₿ (@OptimistLib) reported

    @Hanakookie1 @MrHodl Well, the problem is, you can't send $100 to bitfinex. However you can convert your BTC micropayments immediately to fiat in bitfinex & you can withdraw it after consolidating for a few days

  • NawazCrypto Nawaz Sulemanji (@NawazCrypto) reported

    @paoloardoino @BitcoinErrorLog @bitfinex And also can a user make multiple small transfers back to one wallet. I ask as this may cause a rebalancing issue. What is the plan to mitigate such an attack (to shut down Bitfinex LN deposits or withdrawals)

  • BigMiStAAkkes caotic [Jan/3 🔑] (@BigMiStAAkkes) reported

    @WhalePanda @paoloardoino @bitfinex they still need to fix the 60$ fee for bank wires, top exchange if they do that.

  • ThurkYoung Young Thurk (@ThurkYoung) reported

    Looks like @bitfinex has been hacked. Just got a successful login mail. I haven't logged into my bitfinex account for more that a year. IP address traced to Thailand. Not faking or fudding. Details available on PM.

  • Proportionatty Joe Blues (@Proportionatty) reported

    @Poetry4Bitcoin @ari_cryptonized @CalvinAyre I think they have been building cases for a while, because we are already starting to see action. I.e SDNY vs Bitfinex, Binance on the run, ETH dev getting indicted, and so on. Authorities have been slow to act, but the ball is already rolling now, I assume w. the help of Craig.

  • Metroplex_T MetroPlex (@Metroplex_T) reported

    @cryptocoley @Crypto_Baller33 @BinanceAmerica scam. wont be long before the US justice system comes for binance just like they are hunting bitfinex. Catherine good luck because binance will take you down with them.

  • BlockEnthusiast Block Enthusiast (@BlockEnthusiast) reported

    @alexgausman @ck_SNARKs @RyanSAdams Not anymore so than Binance, Bitfinex, HitBTC getting shut down would affect BTC. At worst dApps are equivalent to the most advanced BTC services. But they have the potential to be far more resilient. If a non custodial service gets shut down, you still own your coins.

    Xrp / 2017 Volume Back in the day, Bitfinex was the top exchange on volume. Btc transactions were expensive and very slow, by December eight Xrp volume started to surge. The wales knew Xrp was faster and cheaper, and they used it to transfer all their money. @alienvision1
