@krakenfx It's is a bit of the world in reverse that the owners need to go to support if it's your fault in the first place. I mean you know who was involved so could fix it yourself...
@bobanmil @krakenfx they lie i was liquidated and they refuse to talk or setle the problem
@krakenfx This could have been prevented with a price band control like deribit, this isn' the first time, or the 20th time this has happened to a degree on kraken. This is an issue specifically problematic on kraken.
@krakenfx love your exchange and am a long time user. All of the money you spend on marketing makes you look stupid when easy engineering problems remain unsolved. Ex poor UX on mobile, poor app etc.
@emalamisura @jespow @krakenfx A "unit test" isn't some fancy magic which uncovers/prevents any and all errors which might happen. You have to set up the tests for certain cases, e.g. to test your components, return types etc. And by no means does a well written test of a component ensure there's no errors.
@krakenfx @Poloniex faced some technical issues, and all they did was to hide behind their finger. Traders could not close their margin positions and got liquidated. Reply was that they acknowledged the error but can not refund as its traders risk...
@jespow @JonnyMoeTrades @ChainWho @Jomarvel12 @krakenfx The exchage error kicked off the events that occurred after. That's the problem. The fact they executed "properly" based on a faulty input is immaterial.
@jrichphillips @JonnyMoeTrades @ChainWho @Jomarvel12 @krakenfx I'm not sure how "a legitimate trade for pricing purposes" is defined. Agree that matching at trade to the wrong side of the book is an exchange error. Everything that happened after that worked as expected. Trade printed, stops triggered, other orders matched just fine.
@jespow @JonnyMoeTrades @ChainWho @Jomarvel12 @krakenfx I'm not following your logic on this. If order matching skips 20% of the orders on the books, that can't be considered a legitimate trade for pricing purposes. That's an exchange error. By your team's own admission, the orders matched to the wrong side of the book. That's on you.
@jespow @ChainWho @jrichphillips @Jomarvel12 @krakenfx Wasn't affected, but as an active trader I can say this: triggering stop orders up to 20% away from the actual market price because the exchange reported an incorrect market price is, to put it plainly, a big ******* problem
@krakenfx Testing in production FTW! From the exchange that gave us a trading engine slower than mtgox and a multiple day outage while they upgraded it with no comms to customers!
@krakenfx Error again. I’m using barginex because no problem
@bobanmil @jespow @NigelEvans4219 @krakenfx Yeah, that caught my eye too. I worked on a trading system and we always had redundant checks, and yes, they slowed things down, but we figured better safe than sorry... on the other hand, it was our company's money at risk, not clients...
@krakenfx WTH, do you have test units for the code. An exchange your size should be following the basics of best practice testing. How about TDD as seems these issues never stop happening at your Ex Looks like you guys test live and don't have a sandbox. You should compensate
@rotkehlchenio @LefterisJP @krakenfx If someone proves they had a buy order set at lets say 9k that didn’t get filled, only then does kraken have a problem that needs to be investigated.

@trajanmex @krakenfx The one time I needed a lack of liquidity on kraken, it didn't happen. Which is probably telling of foul play on other exchanges When BTC ripped through 6k, I had shorts in the mid 8ks that filled. I set buy orders to close at $6200. Every exchange wicked down, except kraken.
@krakenfx your websocket is down

@CryptoMichNL It's legitimately absurd that people even thought for a second that said wick was some kind of actual whale-driven whipsaw. All anyone had to do was check @krakenfx 's outage tracker to see that it was an obvious bug.
@derrick198S @SalsaTekila @trajanmex @krakenfx yeah, it wasn't a real move, it was a printing error.
@RJ_Killmex @SmartContracter That was only a chart print error and afaik no stops triggered. I had no open positions on kraken but saw many people saying this. @krakenfx @krakensupport needs to officially clarify this though, too much fud.

@aBlock0 @bit_cosby @cryptoSqueeze @krakenfx @krakensupport No, it filled my market take profit order at $11,500... but it filled it at $10,200, a few bucks below my entry. Order slipped $1300, essentially. I took all my funds off of kraken. Didnt lose much from it because price went up before down, but not worth it
@bit_cosby @cryptoSqueeze @krakenfx @krakensupport My stop didn't get affected neither. It must be only a chart issue.

@M0ckk @jespow @krakenfx Just a little glitch in the fake price "Matrix"... I would love to see whats the "real" Bitcoin value
The wick from $8,000 to $12,000 might be a glitch that didnt actually get executed. Let's see what @krakenfx @krakensupport has to say
@trajanmex @krakenfx Heard it was a glitch and orders didn’t trigger
@TezosBakingBad @krakenfx Could be a bug. Its exactly 12k & 8k. Cant seem to scroll down the trade history to check it 🤔
@TXWestCapital @scottmelker @krakenfx Yes, Kraken's 'idiosyncrasies'. Would have gladly sacrificed current positions if that thing had extended down to fill my btc stink bids sub 7k though!
@TXWestCapital @scottmelker @krakenfx Total volume traded was around 33BTC on that candle. I am guessing, someone market sold on a thin orderbook down to their order at 8k, which in turn triggering bots which market bought up on the same thin OB. 🤟
@TXWestCapital @ScalperSilly @krakenfx No doubt man. That's ridiculous. No way it was legit (but obviously 'legitimately' liquidated your position). That completely smells like computer error. Maybe someone exploited a bug on Kraken to make it double liquidate (and of course benefit from exploiting the bug)
In 1 second, $XBTUSD on @krakenfx opened at $10238.50, hit a low of $8000, high of $12000 (can't tell which order, up or down first), and closed at $10250.20. This is why we can't have nice things. #bitcoin
@strangelight77 @krakenfx looks like a glitch. people saying orders that in range didn't get filled , and its only 470btc volume when the books in each direction were like 2k+

@bigfloater74 @Gribben1992 @meerkatoshi @CryptoJimz @krakenfx @NatriumIO @NanoTipBot @nano Looks like vimeo is currently down though, gotta wait for it to be up again
@krakenfx Why does the price always go down
@CryptoChrisG @notsofast @BinanceAmerica @BittrexUS @Poloniex @krakenfx @CoinbasePro @goFaast Coinbase are shitbags with 0 leverage. If you trade often, you can keep fees down and they'll give you KFEE sporadically to help with fees as well.
@krakenfx Looks cheap at least, 80% down in 1 year 😆

@sankaet @semick @TheBitcoinKing @krakenfx @synapsepay @synapsefi Not slander just my observation based on multiple instances of this same thing happening. If it was a one-time thing I would be more likely to believe it was a fluke. Anyone reading Twitter or Reddit will see that do you have "issues" on a regular basis.
@krakensupport I opened a ticket. Anyway not working from different PC, Mac iPad. Neither google chrome nor safari.

@ubolator @krakenfx @Coinsquare This is BTC/CAD pairing, and is in line with the other major exchanges in Canada right now. It's just a really slow day.

@MrBitchToken @eth_classic @coinbase @krakenfx @jespow No new, no all "Hard Fork" is new coin, please. Calm Down.
@22centurycrypto @PeterMcCormack @Krypticrooks @krakenfx @Gemini Well it's a bit of a tangled web. There are BV Boys coordinating to harass him, troll him, and get his account shut down. I get how annoying that would be. Generally don't spend that much time on monitoring other people's language.
By the way, KRAKEN (krakenFx) suddenly closed my account down and gave me only 24 hours to move funds off of it and never gave a reason. DO NOT USE THEM IF YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO ACCESS FUNDS AT SELL POINTS.
$mmurfy (on twetch)
@krakensupport If you really did appreciate my business, I wouldn't have to do the majority of it with other exchanges! If that is Kraken's final position on the #BSV issue, then I think I will just close my account and take my business elsewhere... for good.
@krakenfx getting cloudflare error 1020 on sign-in, since yesterday.... plz fix

@bit_cosby @krakensupport @krakenfx They unverified me, wont accept my ID and refuse to speak to me now. So I'm just telling potential customers what they're up to. Yeah their site is pretty shit too. I've had a bunch of failed transactions when I was using it. Slow as all hell.
@gamesforfreya @krakensupport Never had troubles withdrawing from @krakenfx or with their security, so they're still my gateway to $crypto. Everything else gives me headaches, tho: shitty liquidity, manipulation, slow and/or frozen orders, liquidity is a TOTAL SHIT, no limit SL/TP so they can enrich their MM

@krakensupport @bit_cosby The only issue is you stealing customers money!

@krakensupport Cheers for getting back to me. Terrible support staff.

@Typical_Villain @krakenfx That's the kind of post you make a throw away account before you write down.
@krakenfx Fix your AML/KYC policies because it is impossible to get verified.
@PurCrypto @krakenfx Checking an profile is easier than you might think, just one click, rolled down a couple times, saw iota spam, realized why you are butthurt.
@craigstoe @Chalet_spar @krakenfx Not a fan of the drop down menu. I want New Order, Orders, and Positions, all in tabs on the same screen so I can go back and forth. Better yet would be a way to see open positions and orders at the same time - particularly when I have a stop-loss order for an open position
3/ Compared to my last review on July 22 @bitfinex moved from Global Rank 6306 down to 6860, @coinbase from 969 down to 1125, @binance from 763 down to 942 and @krakenfx from 8522 up to 8139.
Solid on SAFE
@oscpacey @JessEpow @krakenfx Yes, if they are not describing it accurately that's a serious issue.
