    4/ Pretty rude awakening of the inherent risks in this market. The problem for me is that as a US citizen I have avoided using non-US compliant exchanges such as Bitmex and Bitfinex; which would have allowed me to short my position using a hedge.

    @tudorbiz Nope because if Tether implodes then Binance, Huobi, OkEX and many others that depend on Tether will go belly up. I believe theres a secret FUD agenda against Bitfinex. Some other big players in the crypto space want it to go down in flames to make their own exchanges profit.

    @DeaterBob @bitfinex Hmm. The Bitcoin price is constantly about $200 higher on Bitfinex then Bitstamp/Coinbase and others for a few days now. So it's not really that risky to buy cheap and transfer to Bitfinex. Problem seems to be the redeemability of Tether.

    @Bitfinexed Also, the bank details haven't changed in years, and neither have there been problems with deposits/withdrawals. Ah, and Coinbase even allows you to buy crypto with a credit card. Same with Bitstamp. Yet some people still want to delude themselves that Bitfinex is 100% legit...

    Bitfinex knows they inflated the whole ecosystem with fake money, and they know if they go down, cryptocurrency goes down with them. Every exchange owner knows this. That's why none of the more legitimate exchanges comment about Bitfinex or Tether.

    Pretty clear that @IamNomad is not a Bitfinex supporter and is unbiased. The problem comes in when emotional and biased ppl engaged with those that are unbiased and unemotional; they mistake the lack of it for irrationality.

  • invincibleXhand
    Invincible Hand (@invincibleXhand) reported

    @BryceWeiner The problem is exchanges quoting in USD while using a stablecoin. Simply quoting the price IN *stablecoin* would make slightly more sense. I have long viewed Bitfinex prices as "In Tethers" rather than "In Dollars".

    @Los_Cryptos @bitfinex Got some coins stuck on there, confo email not being sent, and no support response after a week of contact. I think it’s a common theme with them, I advise non of my followers to deposit any crypto there for the time been. Looks like they are having a ton of issues .

    @TheBlock__ @bitfinex You can pretend that this is a BFX/Tether exclusive problem but it's not. And if you reported on everyone else's (excluding a small handful of US an EU exchanges) fiat banking relationships in the same detail they would face similar scrutiny.

    Eventually the @bitfinex bank piggy backing will come to an end and the whole house of cards will come tumbling down once and for all. There are only so many shady second rate banks ready to launder money to keep a ponzi scheme going. No matter what scale it’s on.

    Netcube93 (@Netcube93) reported

    @derose @AaronvanW @Nouriel 1) A Bitfinex/Tether collapse would surely have some impact but we are already down a lot from the ATH and in a bear market and I don't believe it would be that long lasting (too much good news on other fronts).

    @EagleESBD @hodlonaut @Bitfinexed We're both in crypto and so get how unsound and unhealthy fractional banking is for the economy in th elong run. Bitfinex randomly printing of usdt and inflating the market is a million times worse, surely you see that. If it comes down to trusting butfinex, that's just laughable

    Silver Watchdog (@Silver_Watchdog) reported

    There's a chance Bitfinex might be forced to add competitor stablecoins to their exchange. If that happens things will get really messed up and volatile. If they're going down, they'll take everyone with them.

  • davidtweetsgood
    David Wormley (@davidtweetsgood) reported

    @Bitfinexed might not be an issue with the bank - Bitfinex might have told the bank to expect a certain transaction profile, and this is their way of matching that profile and thereby evading the bank's controls. Definitely concerning behaviour either way

    @IamNomad This is a customer service issue.Trusting bitfinex to peg the value of your usdt to the dollar is a completely different issue. There is no correlation in fact. One is shitty complaint procedures& the other is a systemic threat to people’s money(if you’re dumb enough to hold usdt

    Bitfinex and Tether singlehandedly converted Bitcoin and cryptocurrency into a Ponzi scam. Bitfinex knows better than any one that when they go down, everything does. That’s why we see these moves of desperation. PSA: Bitfinex was founded by a Ponzi Scammer. Raphael Nicolle.

    This way traders will be given the incentive to buy USDT/USD pair on Bitfinex instead of risking problems with AML from 3rd parties. While worrisome I do have to admit the appreciation of BFX admitting the risks involved when dealing with them.
