What is Margin Trading in Crypto - The Best Guide

About withdrawals not being turned on

Like the rest of you, I am pretty pissed about withdrawals not being turned on. It certainly makes this look like an exit scam. But I think there is another possibility.
Maybe this isn't a precursor to stealing our coins; maybe they just don't have the technical skills to do it without getting hacked again.
Incompetence isn't a great look for them, but it's better than malice.
Perhaps the liquidators will have to manually send coins to their owners' wallets, as part of their work. I hope this is what is happening.

Plan To Recover Our Losses


Background on the Initiative

My name is Matt. I’ve lived in Calgary my whole life, and been running businesses and programming since I was 10 years old. I’m a recent graduate of the University of Calgary in a business and computer science double major, and I currently manage the software team (6 students) at a small Calgary IoT startup. My past business experiences include running a window cleaning franchise across 6 communities, a popular concession stand, and a free web hosting service with over 10,000 clients.
I first got involved with cryptocurrency in 2017, when we had the big run up. Prior to that, I’d done a ton of research but never actually invested. While my losses in Quadriga are significant, they’re nowhere near some of the losses I’ve been hearing about. I’m fortunate to be in a “walk away” position if I so choose and I more or less did for the first week. But I couldn’t stay away. It isn’t right. Especially not now when the solution is so close and the potential impact is so significant.
Quadriga Initiative is the result of 6-7 months of on and off brainstorming, collaboration, and iteration around the central goal of recovering what's been lost.
The money is almost certainly not accessible. (I'm pretty sure it would have been found already.) We'll all get something from the bankruptcy, and I appreciate the legal team and official committee working hard on our behalf, but I fear it won't even come close to making up for what was lost. For many people - their whole life savings. It's not a very satisfying recovery. It doesn't leave anyone whole. It leaves a lot of people behind.
Without funds to pull from, any full recovery solution has to center around creating new value. Entrepreneurs and business leaders are creating value every day, and this is where the idea comes from.
We take advantage of the fact we have a large affected user community, tons of economic bargaining power, and a vast network. Many in the business community were affected, know someone who was affected, or feel horrible about what happened. My discussions with business leaders have shown that they generally desire to make this right, and businesses regularly do "goodwill" donations or gestures for marketing. The Quadriga Initiative provides a way businesses can help easily and in a "win win" way by running token-accepting promotions. We then provide a competitive framework that helps to promote businesses which make the biggest impact, highly incentivizing a faster recovery.
At this stage, everything is more or less ready. We have a primary exchange partner, a growing team of affected users, and multiple business connections. What remains is the incredibly tough challenge of creating trust and understanding among a community that's been completely devastated in the worst way. This is no easy task.

Where Does the Money Come From?

The money (value) comes out of the profit margin of businesses. Businesses normally sell a product or service at a profit over the cost of production. Instead, a business would sell the product or service at a discount (less profit), accepting tokens in place of the difference.
While this may seem generous, like the business is giving something away, it also benefits the business as well:
Once a successful marketplace is established, affected users will have a multitude of businesses where they can spend tokens and get good deals. As well, other consumers can buy the tokens at a discount (supporting affected users), then use them to save money.
The leaderboard and large affected user community give a strong advantage to businesses to participate and offer the best deals. Businesses that have recovered the most are rewarded with more people seeing their promotion (free advertising).



The Various Uses For Tokens

Our Partner Exchange: Tokens will be tradable and accepted at face value towards the trading fees on the partner exchange. A trader who wants to save money on trades can stock up on the tokens to gain a discount over other customers who don't bother. The tokens can be used towards 50%-100% of the trading fees depending on the calendar date. This means a heavy discount for affected users and is essentially a price segment for the exchange.
In addition, the primary exchange partner we have is looking into giving back a small portion (15%) of gross trading revenue towards cashing tokens. This is done to incentivize the affected user community to spread the word about the exchange.
Participating Businesses: Businesses in the community accept the tokens towards purchases to promote to Quadriga victims, supporters, and deal seekers. It functions similar to a discount, where the tokens are applied as a portion of the sale price, with a few additional advantages for the business:
Businesses sell promotions for tokens, and send the tokens to a burn address that encodes the business website URL. To further encourage business participation, a leaderboard is set up to promote those businesses which have burned the most tokens. The leaderboard is a useful place to go shopping if you have tokens. You can find businesses who take them and get the best deals. All information is on the blockchain, enabling anyone to set up a leaderboard or start accepting tokens.



Token Flow Diagram

The linked diagram is a handy visualization of the initiative and how the various parties interact:
https://www.quadrigainitiative.com/Quadriga%20Initiative%20Diagram.pdf
The complete initiative is a full marketplace, enabling the beneficial (win win) interaction of all parties and the gradual recovery of losses over time. The token supply is finite, limited by the amount of losses we can verify, and all tokens eventually get cashed for $1 worth of products/services (or primary exchange gross trading revenue) as the program runs.


Our Primary Exchange Partner

Since the primary exchange is handling validation and distributing the tokens, it's important they be trustworthy. Given the history with Quadriga, most affected users (including every member of our team) are legitimately concerned about anyone losing their funds again. This is the primary reason we've selected to work with TxQuick.


Proof of Reserves and Why It Matters

In case you missed them, so far this year we've seen 3 large scale exchange collapses:
Each one represents massive losses for those involved - hundreds and thousands of affected lives. These are real people and families at the other ends, with hopes and dreams, who worked hard for their money.
In the case of QuadrigaCX, it took the freezing of the bank accounts, the death/disappearance of the CEO, and concerted legal action to even realize it was insolvent.
Exchanges can easily continue to operate for years with whatever level of reserves they like. Third party audits are riddled with holes like:
On top of that - most exchange platforms still don't even bother to audit. Despite the warnings about storing funds on exchanges, people still do. And remember that many affected users weren't storing funds on Quadriga - they simply got stuck with no way to withdraw.
Proof of Reserves asks exchanges to:

Check this link for more details on Proof of Reserves, including the full hash tree algorithm.
Despite the relative simplicity of publishing wallet keys, the vast selection of exchanges we have in Canada, and the many millions of dollars stored, not a single exchange has done so. The hash tree algorithm has existed since 2014. It's presently on one exchange (last audited in 2014).
We feel that Proof of Reserves is key to preventing future exchange collapses, which is why we are so pleased to have a primary exchange partner which will be implementing the full algorithm. While we can't control other exchanges, traders now have an option to use an exchange which proves full backing of all deposits and we hope this will encourage wider adoption and greater industry transparency.


Timeline for the Initiative

The initiative process breaks down into roughly 3 stages:
Pre-Claim Stage - We are working to save affected user balances for later validation, as well as determine if there is sufficient interest in the project. This is ongoing.
Exchange Stage - We bring the primary exchange online, and process claims. Recovery starts through exchange trading fee discounts and eventually gross trading revenue. The exchange platform is expected to launch within a few months.
Marketplace Stage - Once we have enough individuals with tokens, we bring in the first businesses from the wider community. After we have several initial businesses, the marketplace grows organically as more businesses sign up over time. This is approximately a year after launching the exchange.
Full recovery (all losses) is likely to take multiple years, anywhere from 2 to 25 years. There are a lot of factors to consider.


Verification of Claims

Accurately capturing losses is key. Businesses are interested in helping honest victims of a crime who had their money stolen from them, and not too interested in supporting any fraud. We've been working hard to make our process as easy as possible for affected users, while being as hard as possible for false claims (claiming wrong amounts, losses of others, or fake claims).

Quadriga Initiative - Additional Information and Clarifications

Quadriga Initiative - Additional Information and Clarifications

Introduction / Summary

The Quadriga Initiative is an independent process where affected users and businesses in the community work together to recover losses from QuadrigaCX. An exchange (the primary exchange) will verify claims and distribute free tokens representing losses. Tokens will be accepted at the primary exchange and by participating businesses at face value. There is a white paper here with more detail:
https://quadrigainitiative.com/Quadriga%20Initiative.pdf
If you wish to participate in the Quadriga Initiative and receive free tokens representing your loss, there is a pre-claim process now open. A pre-claim uses your QCX client ID, first name as registered on the QCX platform, and a valid email address to copy your balance information and associate it with your email address.
https://quadrigainitiative.com/
Although a personal email will work, it is recommended for privacy and security to set up a new "forwarder" email account that doesn't personally identify you, with a unique password. Make sure that whatever email process you set up is one which still works to reach you in a few months time.
  • We are a community initiative which is not connected with the bankruptcy process. Participation does not impact your bankruptcy claim. You can find the official bankruptcy information on the Miller Thompson website.
  • We have taken all reasonable measures to protect our website and stored data against SQL injection. The website back-end is simple, all input is sanitized, and all access passwords are 16+ character full random. (I have a background in web hosting.)
  • There is no cost to participate and the pre-claim process takes approximately 3 minutes.
  • Please be sure to keep a copy of your bankruptcy claim paperwork for later validation!

The money (value) comes out of the profit margin of businesses. Businesses normally sell a product or service at a profit over the cost of production. Instead, a business would sell the product or service at a discount (less profit), accepting tokens in place of the difference.
While this may seem generous, like the business is giving something away, it also benefits the business as well:
  • The business can get additional sales. Even though the profit per sale is less, the business still makes profit on those additional sales.
  • The business can find new customers. Even if a business sells a product or service "at cost" (meaning zero profit), they've established a relationship. The customer may buy other products or services in the future, or it could be part of a subscription.
  • The business is seen positively as "giving back", creating a better future, helping fraud victims, etc...
Once a successful marketplace is established, affected users will have a multitude of businesses where they can spend tokens and get good deals. As well, other consumers can buy the tokens at a discount (supporting affected users), then use them to save money.
The leaderboard and large affected user community give a strong advantage to businesses to participate and offer the best deals. Businesses that have recovered the most are rewarded with more people seeing their promotion (free advertising).



The Various Uses For Tokens

The Primary Exchange: Tokens will be tradable and accepted at face value towards the trading fees on the primary exchange.

The tokens can be used towards 50%-100% of the trading fees depending on the calendar date. This means a heavy discount for affected users and is more or less a price segment for the exchange.
In addition, the primary exchange partner we have at the moment is looking into giving back a small portion (15%) of gross trading revenue towards cashing tokens. This is done to incentivize the affected user community to spread the word about the exchange.
Participating Businesses: Businesses in the community accept the tokens towards purchases to promote to Quadriga victims, supporters, and deal seekers. It functions similar to a discount, where the tokens are applied as a portion of the sale price, with a few additional advantages for the business:
  • It price segments. The business doesn't lose revenue on customers who would have paid full price. With a 20% discount, the business loses revenue on some customers who would have bought anyway. Nobody likes to throw away free money.
  • It can run continuously. A 20% discount running continuously would mean the perceived value of the product would just be 20% less. A promotion accepting tokens can run long-term, enabling the business to attract more customers with less effort.
  • It's a give-back play, showing the business is caring about the wider community, and maybe has a larger agenda than pure profits. (ie Trying to create a better future.)
Businesses sell promotions for tokens, and send the tokens to a burn address that encodes the business website URL. To further encourage business participation, a leaderboard is set up to promote those businesses which have burned the most tokens. The leaderboard is a useful place to go shopping if you have tokens. You can find businesses who take them and get the best deals.

Our Primary Exchange Partner

Since the primary exchange is handling validation and distributing the tokens, it's important they be trustworthy. Given the history with Quadriga, most affected users (including every member of our team) are legitimately concerned about anyone losing their funds again. This is the primary reason we've selected to work with TxQuick.
  • TxQuick is being developed by Ethan Burnside, who has demonstrated his integrity in 2012-2013 when he ran BTC Trading Corp. When it was shut down, he spent significant personal funds to keep it running so everyone could get their money out - likely the only time in history that an exchange shut down and everyone got their funds. You can learn more about him from his post here.
  • We've had extensive discussions on Telegram about security. Ethan is open, transparent, and extremely knowledgeable. He has invested heavily in developing a system of secure multi-sig wallets. His previous exchange was never successfully hacked. If you have any questions, Ethan is happy to answer them!
  • Ethan is strongly in favour of publishing wallet public keys. The exchange will feature a full transparency page to allow anyone to see that all funds are fully backed. In the future, a full proof of reserves will be deployed to assure all customers that their balances are represented.
  • In addition to the token validation/verification function:
    • TxQuick will be the first platform to allow buying and selling of the tokens.
    • TxQuick proposes to accept the tokens at face value towards trading fees on the exchange. Affected users can use tokens to get free or discounted trading (50%+ off).
    • TxQuick will also handle a slow token payback, enabling tokens to be exchanged 1:1 for cash over time using 15% of gross trading revenue.
  • This proposal is subject to approval by the TxQuick board. It could be changed. There is a necessary interest level from the affected user community of at least 1,000 sign-ups.
  • While it might seem like Ethan is being super generous and giving a lot away for free, again this is mutually beneficial (win win). Here are some of the benefits to the primary exchange:
    • Lots of sign-ups from affected users and, later, interested consumers, many of whom will stay to use the platform. Ethan desires to achieve a dominant position in the Canadian marketplace.
    • The token program provides an effective price segment, increasing revenue over time. (Low prices = lost profit, high prices = less customers, price segment = more profit and customers.)
    • Customers with recovered funds are likely to be more loyal and prefer the platform, and the profit share incentivizes spreading the word about the platform. (Interests are aligned.)
  • It is not required to use the primary exchange platform for trading or deposit any money. You are free to sign up, receive your free tokens, and continue trading on any other platform or just use the marketplace.


Proof of Reserves and Why It Matters

In case you missed them, so far this year we've seen 3 large scale exchange collapses:
  • QuadrigaCX
  • EZ-BTC
  • Cryptopia
Each one represents massive losses for those involved - hundreds and thousands of affected lives. These are real people and families at the other ends, with hopes and dreams, who worked hard for their money.
In the case of QuadrigaCX, it took the freezing of the bank accounts, the death/disappearance of the CEO, and concerted legal action to even realize it was insolvent.
Exchanges can easily continue to operate for years with whatever level of reserves they like. Third party audits are riddled with holes like:
  • How can they possibly know the client list they're given is legitimate and fully inclusive?
  • How can you know the funds weren't borrowed for the audit purposes?
  • How old is the report? How can you trust the auditor?
On top of that - most exchange platforms still don't even bother to audit. Despite the warnings about storing funds on exchanges, people still do. And remember that many affected users weren't storing funds on Quadriga - they simply got stuck with no way to withdraw.
Proof of Reserves asks exchanges to:
  • Publish the wallet public keys so people can see that funds are fully backed. (A satoshi test can prove ownership of those wallets.)
  • Publish a hash tree to let each customer validate that their balance is included in the total.
What it doesn't prevent:
  • Same as presently, if funds are not secured in proper multi-sig wallets or multiple exchange operators are corrupt, the funds could still be taken, up to what's stored. However, this would be immediately known to everyone instead of revealed whenever admins felt like it (or never).
  • The balances of customers who never check the hash tree could be excluded by a dishonest exchange, which wouldn't be noticed until one of those customers decided to check.
  • A dishonest exchange could still dispute the balance of a customer or arbitrarily prevent withdrawals. In this case, the customer and exchange would have to sort that out.
  • A dishonest exchange could pretend to own wallets it doesn't. A satoshi test would help with this, where the exchange operators send a small amount at a specified time.
  • While it makes things safer, it's still not a good idea to store funds on the exchange.
What it does prevent:
  • The exchange owner can't spend funds of active customers, and still claim to hold them.
    • ie QuadrigaCX, EZ-BTC
  • The exchange owner can't conceal if funds are hacked or stolen. It becomes known immediately.
    • ie Mt. Gox, Cryptopia
  • Anyone can see if the exchange is solvent before trading.
    • ie Anyone with "bad timing" using an insolvent exchange.
Check this link for more details on Proof of Reserves, including the full hash tree algorithm.
Despite the relative simplicity of publishing wallet keys, the vast selection of exchanges we have in Canada, and the many millions of dollars stored, not a single exchange has done so. The hash tree algorithm has existed since 2014. It's presently on one exchange (last audited in 2014).

Full recovery (all losses) is likely to take multiple years, anywhere from 3 to 25 years. My best estimate would be 10 years, although there are a lot of factors to consider.


Verification of Claims

Accurately capturing losses is key. Businesses are interested in helping honest victims of a crime who had their money stolen from them, and not that interested in supporting any fraud. We've been working hard to make our process as easy as possible for affected users, while being as hard as possible for false claims (claiming wrong amounts, losses of others, or fake claims).
  • Our ideal verification is based on:
  • If we don't have all the information, or there are problems, claims may be limited or rejected. This is at our full discretion, along with our primary exchange partner.
  • The user balance website is available to confirm balances for a limited time. It could go offline as early as August 31st. Once it goes offline, pre-claims will no longer be possible. As no list of claimants is being published through the bankruptcy, and paperwork can easily be manipulated, larger balances will then have to be validated through the courts.
  • Anyone with a balance on Quadriga can create a pre-claim by providing:
    • Client ID and first name for the purposes of saving the total which you had.
    • An email address for a future launch announcement (which can be a forwarder).

There are basically two different ways you can make mazuma from digital currencies. You can purchase a couple of coins currently, hold them for an extensive period and offer them after the esteem has risen significantly or you can get started with exchanging digital forms of money, here once more, you can exchange physically or run with the best crypto exchanging bots. While holding cryptographic money for a more drawn out term has turned out to be fulfilling, it takes a bounty of time and tolerance for you to optically observe the estimation of your speculation increase.If you are somebody, who does not have the persistence to hang tight for so long, at that point digital currency trading provides you with the immaculate chance to make some mazuma. Numerous prosperous digital currency dealers do recommend you purchase low and sell high. In any case, this is easier verbalized than done.
Digital currencies have been cosmically unpredictable since the earliest reference point. They are the main tradable resources whose esteem shifts in twofold digit rates every day. The cost does not generally go up either. Along these lines, timing the market is the way to turning into a prosperous cryptographic money merchant.
Exchanging digital money isn't any advanced science. All you require is a record on a digital money trade and some cryptographic money in your wallet. This would have been the situation, had you started exchanging these computerized resources route in 2010.
Presently, on the off chance that you try to put in any limitation request on any famous cryptographic money trade, you will outwardly see another application set appropriate above you're, putting forth a superior arrangement. Hence, you are constrained to put orders at market esteem.
The way that a superior offer quickly negated your offer does not assign that somebody is continually crushing before the PC. You just set off crypto exchanging bot when you submitted your request.

Investment Rules and Trading Strategies for Cryptocurrencies-Part 1

Investment Rules and Trading Strategies for Cryptocurrencies-Part 1
You definitely have a friend who made a lot of money trading cryptocurrencies back in 2017 when the market was in a bull run. Even though he made good profits, was he really a good trader and investor? What defines a good trader? A good trader is someone who has a strong trading system and is self-discipline. One that is guided by probability and not possibility. Excelling well in trading using technical analysis also requires strong risk management.

Aside to the volatility, the cryptocurrency market is not very different from the traditional stock market as people make the market. Human psychology does not change, traders/investors today still face the same emotions of fear and greed.
This article will comprise of a three part series, going through 15 trading rules to follow when trading cryptocurrencies. We hope this article will give you the right knowledge to help you build up a strong trading system.
Golden Rule №1
Buy the most hated token

https://preview.redd.it/2gnhai6fczq21.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=9955a9b12746b6de43463dba657c8928671d6972
More often than not, those who were once lovers, soon became haters. For example if you were to look at Tron (TRX) and Cardano (Ada), these projects have strong fundamentals and a lot of followers who invested in the tokens. Prices sky rocketed, cementing their belief that these projects will go to the moon. Now if you were to look at the chart below of Cardano (Ada), you will notice that prices have declined over 90% from its all-time high in January 2018.

People who were once shilling these projects are now mad because they lost a great sum of capital and subsequently lose confidence over time. By following this doctrine rule, now is the best time to buy these projects! When you buy the most hated token, you avoid following the herd and fear of missing out (FOMO). You will be the shepherd and not the sheep!
The Cup and Handle (illustration below) is a common classical chart pattern where if you follow this rule, will be entering the trade at the bottom of the cup where prices are the lowest. This price pattern is considered a bullish continuation pattern and is used to identify buying opportunities.

Golden Rule №2
Price forecast will make the news and not the other way around!
📷
https://preview.redd.it/vgqkw69hczq21.jpg?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=691e912a12eb54762febd629713d234c84c9c4ff
Everyone is all brought up understanding the world through cause and effect. The human mind has to understand things through rationale. Journalist has to write articles to explain why the traditional share market has dropped by 5%. The content may not be the exact reason for the market movement and different journalist and market analysis may state different reasons to justify the price fluctuation.
A key point that i will like to highlight is that news is mainstream, while price is the purest form of sentiment. In technical analysis, the chart is the direct reflection of sentiment. There are many technical indicators out there such as RSI, moving averages, most of which are lagging indicators.
A forward indicator is Elliott waves which is founded by Ralph Nelson Elliott in the 1930s. This principle allows traders to do forward price projections. It states that price forecast will determine the news, and not the other way around. This technical indicator is easy to practice but hard to master.
Traders also often read the news and is influenced when drawing the chart, thereby given lower accuracy rates. The best advise while trading is not to read the news and be disciplined. The chart which captures all the price movements throughout the history can tell you everything about the token/company.
Golden Rule №3
Do not place all the eggs in one basket!
📷
https://preview.redd.it/dkc8213iczq21.jpg?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=784837a0fad28983010d8d0b97feffc81da2dd82
You probably have heard this many times before and ill not delve in it further. When trading cryptocurrencies, its best to trade a few tokens rather than holding one token alone. Most of the tokens are startups with a future roadmap of technological upgrades and development.
There is a fine line between gambling and trading. Portfolio management is important as well to ensure that risk is well managed.
Most of the tokens in the cryptocurrency market have a high similarity index. Where money flows into the crypto space and money flows out. About 70% of the tokens chart have similar patterns. A good portfolio will be 40%-60% compromising of the large cap tokens and the remainder are middle to small capitalization of about 10–15% allocation per token.
While it is convenient to leave your tokens in the exchange which can be traded anytime, it will be prudent to store your tokens in different cold and hot wallets. More details can be found at the end of the article. Recently a prominent exchange Cryptopia has been hacked and all the users have no access to their tokens.
Golden Rule №4
Never Short the Bull Market!
📷
https://preview.redd.it/j2ztqkviczq21.jpg?width=599&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=9b1525840660dbb9bf122406d01cc7e4d3e815b4
First, identify the trend, then trade with the trend. Back in 26th November 2017 when Bitcoin prices was about to reach $10k USD, all the traders and market analyst expect prices to hit the $10k USD mental resistance line and decided to short Bitcoin.
A lot of traders lost money placing that trade. Bitcoin prices later soared to about $19,400 USD on some exchanges.
Golden Rule №5
Do not margin trade for Cryptocurrencies
📷
https://preview.redd.it/ayshuhujczq21.jpg?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=9244e07493fd25a9999f7f920817e3b812993355
The Cryptocurrency market is highly volatile and traders should not need to margin trade to make decent profits. Another point to add is that every trader has different risk appetite and if you were to do margin trading, you will feel anxious which affects your trading performance.
You should start off trading with an amount you are comfortable sleeping with at night. If you place a large trade in the day and it is affecting your sleep, it means that your position size is too big.

I’m think I’m done with gently caressing bitcoin!

Relatively new to the market (mid 2017) and it’s been a whirlwind. I’ve learnt so much and always believed in the long term fundamentals. I got immersed in btc in 2015 spent many hours romanticising the ideals but didn’t buy because it wasn’t very usable and the 10k tribe in 2015 seemed pretty far gone on hopium (sigh).
Joining crypto was the best, the learning curve was steeper than the 4hrly charts. Fomo fud kyc icos gas mew private key binance etherdelta confirmations hard forks chain gangs Fibonaccia RSI support.
I got hungry, really hungry and along the way I’ll admit, I lost sight of the fundamentals - the dream - tbh I’d flip any shill coin I could to make a few sats. I had a 5k positive day which was unbelievable for me at the time.
I’ve even worked within a company that unfortunately ico’d in November 2017. At first this was like a dream. And then I had to deal with thousands of people on the way down even though I didn’t join the project until July 2018. The market has been rough on the team, the project, and mostly the investors. PNL yet to be realised.
At any rate, I was still hopeful and without the eth revenue I went back to charting and trading and waiting and watching. Relatively successfully and happily. Wash the stink of 2018 off and look ahead.
Something about a tight range sideways market gets me on edge. Compounding to that I recently had 20% of my folio shlogged in one foul move by cryptopia hack (moved funds to cryptopia and withdrew on the same day...but they never came through, yikes!)
And so I ended up on bitmex - only a month ago - started on the testnet and played low leverage moves. Shorting bitcoin was a dirty feeling. I played the game fine, payed too much fees doing market orders and I exited one of my positions too soon but was up 50%.
But the disgusting disgusting manipulation of this currency was never more apparent than on bitmex, 20% wicks just to break peoples souls. I play poker from time to time, but this was like cryptocrack and at least in poker you can look at the person that you are swindling (not online but you know what I mean).
Maybe I am being naive or maybe I’m a bit of a fundamentalist but I think I’m actually done. It just seems like every innovation thus far is another way to soak bitcoin out of hodlers.
So immersed in the world of margins - I am running on minimal sleep (while the biggest leverage I did was 10% the trollbox etc was mesmerising). But I honestly can see this going one of two ways. 1) the big dogs and market makers wash trade until they can cash out > market slumps. 2) this consumes everything and bull whale/ bear kraken and their minion - rektbot - enslave us while chipping away at our earnings for the privilege to participate in their world finance - kind of what I wanted to avoid in the first place.
TLDR: proof of keys! Gently caress all exchanges! and LONG LIVE DOGE!!
Respect to all the long hodlers. Keep strong hands don’t buy into the bullshit and you will be alright or it will tank harder but you know like you weren’t selling anyway. Respect to the devs and anyone pushing for the genuine progress of blockchain.

Trading platform options

So if I want to short (as well as long) cryptos, margin, etc where do I go?
Bitfinex isn't an option with their new $10K minimum deposit to unlock features rule.
I already have accounts with Bittrex, Binance, HitBTC, Kucoin and Cryptopia. But none of them seem to offer the trading abilities, shorting etc of Bitfinex.
Is Bitmex my only option?
Cheers!

Cryptopia: "Our trading volume is now $280 million day...we're making a million dollars a day...yesterday we had to close off new registrations after they hit 100,000..."

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 75%. (I'm a bot)
Christchurch computer currency trading firm Cryptopia is riding the wave of bitcoin mania and has become one of the most widely used cryptocurrency exchanges.
Cryptopia, which is ranked 20th out of 170 trading exchanges around the world, is based in unassuming offices in Montreal St Christchurch, although it's likely to be moving to bigger premises.
Lyness said Cryptopia's daily internet traffic was exceeding that of Trade Me and main news outlets.
Currently, one bitcoin is trading at a value of $22,547 in New Zealand dollars, which compares with about $1200 just a year ago.
Cryptopia gleans its income from a trading fee equivalent to 40c in each $100 transaction.
Most of the 600 or so cryptocurrencies listed on coinmarketcap.com appear to have enjoyed a similar value rise like bitcoin, although bitcoin is the most well traded by a big margin.

crazy idea: the NYAN rank 350 "conspiracy". What if the driver behind the latest rise is an attempt to build a cryptocurrency index fund?

This is not something I think is likely, but it's something that seems to fit observed results, and I find it amusing, so I figured I would write this up quickly.
The basis of this is two general observations: first, essentially every cryptocurrency, major or minor, seems to be going up strongly lately. Second, despite the high volatility in NYAN lately, we seem to keep returning to right around rank 350 (coinmarketcap currently showing rank 349 at time of writing).
I speculated long ago about the total throughput capacity of considering a bunch of clonecoins all taken as one. This concept and general musing about cryptocurrency markets and how they could develop and thinking about the stock market led naturally to the concept of an index fund of cryptocurrencies.
The motivation for such a fund rather than only investing in Bitcoin is fairly obvious. Just as smallcap stocks are known to have higher returns on average compared to largecap, so too smaller cryptocurrencies can be expected to have higher returns on average than larger ones in my opinion. And just as diversification within the asset class of stocks with an index fund helps to capture that overall return without the exposure to the outsized risk of picking a particular member of the class, so too the ability to buy into essentially all cryptocurrencies at once would have significantly less risk than buying any particular one.
If this purchasing were to be more significant than all of the other market activity going on, it would account for all cryptocurrencies generally going up while relative ranks remain generally unchanged. Of course there would have to be a bit of sophistication to this (like maintaining a generally static list causing the return to a given rank consistently, yet there must be some room for modification for real failures to drop and strong outperformers to rise eventually), but that broad concept I think would fit surprisingly well what I have seen in NYAN.
Of course, if there were a public fund doing this, it would have generated a lot of publicity presumably that we would have heard about. But it seems far more probable that this would first be done by a hedge fund or individual investor, which would again explain the radio silence observed.
This seems like a pretty outlandish possibility, and surely one that would have been speculated on elsewhere already if true, but at the same time, it does seem to fit. And it seems logical that if there really were to be significant money getting in, eventually someone would want to build the S&P 500 of cryptocurrency, essentially, rather than only going for the very largest coins.
What am I missing? Of course it could just be coincidence that we seem to so often return to the same rank. There are certainly lots of non-existent patterns in the numbers I see from staring at this for so long. But it seems to me like there must be something going on in common across the various cryptocurrencies based on how so many seem to have spiked at about the same time and so strongly, and it seems like it must be fundamentally something to do with trading rather than anything particular about cryptocurrency since the community and technical aspects haven't changed substantially in that time.
It also seems like it must be a new force in the market because these rises across all of these coins happening all at once seems to me to be bigger than anything that's happened before.
So what do you all think? Is someone making the Crypto 500? Or what do you think explains the last couple months?
Edit: Just from watching it for the last few hours, going from 50 satoshi to 46 to 44 while staying at rank 350 or within a couple ranks, seems like a strong correlation so far. Closer relationship than anything else I can point to. It's not predictive but interesting.
Edit: 6/23 9:30 CDT (UTC-5): I'm going to wait on the details until coinmarketcap catches up, as it's still showing 47 satoshi and rank 356, but the model may have its first predictive result: when we consider which will win, ceiling or rank, my model would predict rank. And sure enough, at 9:26am the 50 sat ceiling was smashed.
A much larger test will come at 56 satoshi, where there is about 1,400,000 NYAN for 0.8 BTC on that one price. This is the largest single roadbump, at least in terms of listed asks, on the way to 100 satoshi, with lesser ones on 60, 70, and 80 satoshi. If 350 rank wins over the 56 satoshi ceiling, I'll be pretty convinced there's something to the stable rank notion whether or not it's from an "index fund".
Okay, and now coinmarketcap is caught up:
rank 349, .48 BTC last 24 hours; last trade 600 NYAN @ 50 satoshi (technically per cryptopia, but really, part of a ~200,000 NYAN trade all happening at the same time), 4 satoshi spread: 263 NYAN bid at 47 satoshi; ~40,000 NYAN ask at 51 satoshi. 24 hour low 38 satoshi; high 50 satoshi.
Edit 3: Going to do an example where it dropped down a bit. Just had some sales at 43 satoshi for small volume; already a larger bid at 46 satoshi, but hoping to capture the rank when coinmarketcap updates from this trade before anyone sells at 46.
10:40pm rank 353, .44 BTC last 24 hours; last trade 447 NYAN @ 43 satoshi, 5 satoshi spread: ~29,000 NYAN bid at 46 satoshi, ~41,000 NYAN ask at 51 satoshi. 24 hour low 38 satoshi; high 50 satoshi.
Ah, and in waiting for coinmarketcap to update the 46 satoshi bid was pulled without being hit. So 8 satoshi spread, ~36,000 NYAN bid at 43 satoshi. 100k market sale would go down to 42 satoshi; 100k market buy would go up to 55 satoshi.
Edit 4: In the meantime there were small trades back up to 49 satoshi again, but now a dip which I think is illustrative and a small test of the model.
1:05pm rank 361, .42 BTC last 24 hours; last trade ~8,000 NYAN @ 38 satoshi, 5 satoshi spread: ~7,000 NYAN bid at 43 satoshi; ~24,000 NYAN ask at 48 satoshi. 24 hour low 38 satoshi; high 50 satoshi.
So we see a dip in terms of rank and last btc traded price, but the bids are already 5 satoshi above the last trade, which reflects the expectation I would have based on the rank model that the price would tend to rise from this position (of course rank movement predictions aren't strictly speaking price movement predictions directly as the other ranks could move around instead, but loosely speaking to go up in rank would be to go up in price).
11 places off isn't really that huge of a difference but it seems enough to show a relatively strong reaction (the 5 satoshi higher bids than last trade).
Volumes on the margin continue to be small. 100k market sale would go down to 37 satoshi; 100k market purchase would go up to 52 satoshi. So 15 satoshi spread for moderate volume.
Edit 5: There's been no substantial trading since the last update (<1000 NYAN) but the bids and asks have moved enough and created an inversion that's a little interesting.
4:05PM rank 351, .39 BTC last 24 hours; last trade 11 NYAN @ 47 satoshi, 1 satoshi spread: ~7,500 NYAN bid at 43 satoshi; ~3,000 NYAN ask at 44 satoshi. 24 hour low 38 satoshi; high 50 satoshi.
100k in market sale would go to 40 satoshi; 100k market buy to 47 satoshi. So 7 satoshi "moderate volume" spread.
So while the rank fits with the model, strangely enough that's on basically no volume and there's about 120,000 NYAN available up to and including that last trade price. If the model is right then and the surrounding ranks don't change substantially, we would expect that those asks will be bought at some point. The response time generally seems to be within 24 hours but often a few hours between action.
I should probably point out here that this is just my speculation while watching the market. If you choose to trade on any of this guesswork, you do so at your own risk. And even if I had the money to do so, I wouldn't try front-running based on this model but would be building bids lower to catch large (1+ nillion) dumps. But I find this curious because I was totally bewildered by what was going on before and this is the first hint I've had of some sort of predictability behind the market movements. I expect this will turn out to be simply a coincidence, but in the meantime I'll keep observing it.
Edit 6: Okay, small test of the hypothesis.
5:40PM, rank 356 (last trade 43 satoshi) .39 BTC last 24 hours; last trade 11 NYAN @ 44 satoshi (coinmarketcap hasn't updated with this one yet), 1 satoshi spread: 900 NYAN bid at 43 sat; ~94,000 NYAN ask at 44 sat.
And still rank 356 with update to 44 satoshi. So my guess would be that the small ceiling here should be eaten to put NYAN back to its 350 (sometime within the next 24 hours; written 6/23). 100k market sell would go down to 40 satoshi; 100k market buy would go up to 45 satoshi. 5 satoshi "moderate volume" spread, which is pretty small compared to what we've seen recently.
Edit 6.1: 5:50PM, couple small quick trades bought it to 41 satoshi last trade, rank 358364. This pulled the ask down to 43 satoshi. Mostly unchanged. The "350" movement seems to take place over a longer interval; if it doesn't go back there in the next 24 hours I'll consider the hypothesis busted, but for now I would expect those low asks to be eaten (up to around 46-47 satoshi).
Again, this is not trading advice, just my personal speculation while watching and trying to understand what's going on.
Edit 7: 10:10PM 6/23: brief update, still 41 satoshi last trade, rank 363. We'll see if overnight or tomorrow morning we get the "regression to the mean" in terms of rank that I've predicted...oh, actually there was just a sale at 40 satoshi, so rank will be even a bit lower once coinmarketcap updates.
Edit 8: 6/24 11:50am: rank 360, .22 BTC last 24 hours; last trade 252 NYAN @ 43 satoshi, 1 satoshi spread: 545,000 NYAN bid at 43 satoshi; 3,000 NYAN ask at 44 satoshi.
Okay, well, call rank 350 myth busted, or at least, it's been about 20 hours and hasn't returned to there. Maybe the cycle is a bit longer than I expected, or maybe it's just an interesting coincidence.

  • Bitfinex is doing fine (unless you margin traded yesterday during the flash crash), I didn't try to withdraw though so I don't know if that's working right now.
  • Cryptopia (New Zealand exchange) is doing fine, no downtimes, possible to withdraw and everything seems ok besides everything melting down.
  • GDAX is currently stable.
  • Kraken is shit. But that's no news, it's been like that for months, if not years. Orders don't go through, 404 errors and duplicated orders, you name it. Basically,yesterday was like any other day for them.
  • Coinbase FINALLY allowed me to buy bitcoin after several attempts and error messages. (this is not consensus, many people still unable to buy / sell through Coinbase. Coinbase say they are under maintenance
  • Bitstamp is currently stable and able to make trades.
  • Gemini has been working fine for me. Threw up a couple limit orders as the price was dropping, they went in and ended up being filled successfully.

Cryptopia Exchange Tutorial - How to Trade Your Crypto ... Cryptopia Tutorial - Trading - YouTube MARGIN TRADING, LEVERAGE & LIQUIDATION How Leverage Trading in Crypto Actually Works... - YouTube How does Binance MARGIN TRADING Work? - YouTube

Margin trading is a practice that allows trading assets by using additional funds provided by a third party. Margin accounts give traders access to more capital. This means that traders can leverage their positions. Crypto margin funding is a way to lend your money for margin traders and receive yields on agreed interest rates and other contract terms. Key mechanisms behind crypto margin funding differ from exchange to exchange; it involves significantly lesser risks than cryptocurrency margin trading itself. Crypto margin trading exchanges Margin trading can also be against the market, so we can also have a short position with leverage. High leverage risk: The higher the leverage, the closer the liquidation price is. The rule here is dividing 100 by the leverage level will grant you the percentage until you reach the liquidation price. Example: a positive with 1:25 leverage needs Margin trading is one of the conventional and proven methods which traders use for trading assets by utilizing the fund that comes from a third party. What it does is that it allows traders to deal with a massive amount of capital which they can leverage according to their needs and requirements. In addition to this, margin trading does amplify Margin trading can be done short (where you bet on the price going down) or long (where you bet on the price going up). Further, it can be used to speculate, to hedge, or to avoid having to keep your full balance on an exchange. Below we explain the basics of margin trading and warn of some of the risks.
