A WARNING TO ALL CANADIANS ABOUT USING ETHERDELTA

3년 전

A few days ago I decided that I wanted to buy some Veritaseum on the Etherdelta website. The site prompted me to download a Chrome plugin called Metamax. I followed the instructions to download Metamax, and my account was accepted. I then went to Coinbase and purchased $10 worth of Ethereum. Without thinking I went directly back to Etherdelta to get an address to send the funds to. To be honest I was excited and I forgot to use the Metamax plugin, but my account on Etherdelta accepted the transfer from Coinbase. I then tried to deposit the funds from my account in to the trading platform, but a message came up directing me to Metamax. When I tried using Metamax, another prompt came up advising me that it did not provide service to Canada. The end result is that I have funds in my Etherdelta account that I cannot access. In essence I have lost my deposit. Although it was only $10, be careful not to make the same mistake that I did. If I had gone to Metamax in the first place, all of this could have been avoided.

Thank you for your kind words, but the mistake was mine. I just want to make sure that no one else makes the same error and ends up losing a lot more money than me.
