Steemians: WARNING: Day 2!! Do NOT use Poloniex at this time for your STEEM and SBD transfers, Ethereum, and maybe other things - Here is why:

3년 전

TODAY/ YESTERDAY:

--

Our friend here @teamsteem had a very strong warning to all of us here, he does not want to see anyone hurt - he has a good heart -- he warned people like others have done to NOT USE POLONIEX for any Steem or SBD transfers right now:


Please Resteem this post!! Help others also! They are your family.


On top of yesterday's warnings we gave you in a post very late last nite (EST which I have included again here today to spread word, the last 24 hours, Poloniex has now also disabled Ethereum wallets!!!!

See here in the bottom R. of this screenshot - that I have highlited over in green by my cursor and below that, I have pasted their NOTICE on this word for word!! :

--

NOTICES:

Due to ongoing network instability, we've disabled Ethereum deposits/withdrawals. We'll enable once we know the network is functioning properly.

I use and have regularly used Poloniex charts as an example, at times, for graphic purposes but here is what @teamsteem said in the comments section of my post earlier tonight. I edited that post as it was important to him and I like him - he is a good guy!!

Neither of us, nor others -- want anyone new to crypto or who have been in crypto awhile to get hurt and if you like -- please go look at my wallet and see that I have $500 SBD sitting at Poloniex myself -- that money is my SteemFest money to get to Portugal.

I am writing this warning, with the words and blessing of @teamsteem, showing you that we can all be a TEAM - Together Everyone Achieves More! - That we can and should care about each other - and I am working with him to show you--- Steemit family this and we care.


If anyone here does not want you hurt, it is people like me and @teamsteem who have money sitting at Poloniex, I have $500 SBD there and almost as much - so does @teamsteem !!


You can see from my wallet screenshot, I am backing up what I am saying...... my SBD deposit to Poloniex was sent, nearly 12 hours ago, and it is NOT in my Polo wallet!! (Today, June 22nd ~ 12 noon or so)


Poloniex is the biggest exchange going - most people know their name and logo and charts, it was for a graphic illustration only! That's why I use their charts much of the time - people recognize them but man, do they have a lot of problems these days, the news has been everywhere for months, my friends!

I've sent 490 SBD 23 hours ago to @poloniex and I haven't received them. I've triple check my memo code and opened up a ticket to @poloniex to let them know. I also seen a lot of Steemian in the last hours to days who talked about the similar situation.

@barrydutton as soon as you see my comment, correct your title so that it tell people not to sent SBD to Poloniex. Also make a clear warning that it might be the same for Steem as I've also seen people mentioning that the same happened to them in regard to sending Steem to poloniex.

I will remove my flag when you do so and I might even replace it with an upvote.


Thanks for reading, have a nice day.

For what it's worth, I've never had any issues with Poloniex withdrawals, and I've been moving large amounts of XRP and BTC around in the last couple of days. The only complaint I have is that the site has been running a little slow for a few weeks now.

·

Followed.

Thanks for the input.

Remember steamians, always have a few platforms in which you buy and sell your cryptos on. Platforms are not always the same and fluctuate in selling price. They are also always changing their fees to transfer cryptos.

Remember, "A penny saved, is a penny earned"....DO YOUR RESEARCH STEEMIANS AND IT WILL PAY OFF.

^^^RESTEEMING POST^^^

·

Cryptsy, Mt. Gox, etc. + exit scam tumblers, markets, buy exchanges/trades and the list goes on. Poloniex is huge, just the values of their wallets speak loud and clear. It's fucked how they could care less about the customer though..

·
·

They did just drop the trollbox to help with customers tickets....maybe that will help lol

·
·
·

That was WEEKS ago, though. Not any better, it was just propaganda, most people think.

·

I have been AFK most of the last 2 days again but am home now.

I am loving your support and input a lot and so boom sending you some vote power love, it is still low LOL

·
·

Thanks mate I appreciate it! I will keep supporting your page with upvotes and resteems my friend. I am working up my Steem power so I should help your posts out.

·
·
·

It will always be appreciated my man, believe that!

Thank you for the warning to all others. Fortunately I only sent around $4 or so worth towards the exchange. Never appeared, but that made me stop before sending over 400 steem a few hours later. It's funny how the prices look manipulated a bit. I mean hell, disabling Steem, SBD and multiple other coins for days now.. that's suspicious.

·

I have been AFK most of the last 2 days again but am home now.

I have done 2 posts in 2 days on this, and the amount of people this has helped learn of the issues, or remind them is really a blessing to see and frankly I am glad @teamsteem asked someone to do a post on this issue and that is why he is a beaut.

·

@avilsd yeah totaly dude most pump & dump happens in poloniex and they do it themself i think they use bots for trading for them
#upvote

·
·

That does appear to be part of the .....

speculation on things LOL.

Bad crypto pun, I know!!!

·
·
·

U know whats worst i just got my first big reward and i wana withdraw my sbd to poloniex cause poloniex price is 0.00066btc/sbd and bittrex 0.00056btc/sbd

·
·
·
·

I understand.

Thanks for checking back in.

I am checking @poloniex daily to see if they have given me access yet to my $500 SBD put in the other day, believe me.

·
·
·
·
·

i just exchanged my first big payout from steem from bittrex very dissapointed from poloniex and bittrex for giving such poor rates and some people says use blocktrades 😂😂😂😂 gives 5 times lesser then market rates...lol aint dt much crazy i found sbd and steem pairs in hitbtc also

·
·
·
·
·
·

Keep Steeming man.

You clearly know what you are doing.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Thnx man

·
·

probably but the worst they cheat us not allowing fair trades.

·

i have been expecting the large exchanges to struggle under the new global weight of adoption and transactions during this period. these are mostly technical issues with scaling and stability, but of course it is going to scare traders and seem very suspicious! let's ride this out and take it as a positive sign that cryptos are growing too fast for the existing exchanges. i use bittrex personally.

We had the same problem with sending 50 steem to Poloniex. It wasn't credited yet... It's 5 days ago.. Now we are using openledger or Bittrex

·

GBM, followed you today.

Thanks again

·
·

Thanks and welcome :)

·

Great input today, thanks a lot GBM!!!!

·

Haven't had trouble from Poloniex yet...but have quite a bit on the exchange - hoping I can retain the value of my holdings when it comes to consolidating to one currency and getting out :(

Omg. How about @blocktrades.us?

I don't think I'm going to use Poloniex at all from now on.

Thanks for the heads up. This isn't affecting any other sites, is it? (bittrex, kraken, etc)

·

Not today.

I posted a week ago when all the Bittrex STEEM wallets were offline too, but is really has me wondering at times now, what is really going on....

I have been AFK most of the last 2 days again but am home now.

Thanks for that, and please consider resteeming the post to help others. These 2 posts over 2 days have helped a lot of people I noticed!!! I have been encouraged by the comments.

This really sucks, For everyone is the crypto space they where the number 1 exchange for me for well over a year. i really hope they don't close shop with millions in coins/tokens but i keep telling everyone i know to get the coins to their own wallet or another exchange.

My rule is send to exchange get what i need get it off inless it is funds i want to trade with with in the end if i am playing the market i am willing to lose it.
But main thing GET YOUR COINS OFF POLO

·

I have been AFK most of the last 2 days again but am home now.

You are making good points as usual Sky.

I have been warning about this for a long time. Thank you for reiterating. I am now following you.

Thanks, it just adds up to what I came across yesterday
screenshot-changelly.com-2017-06-20-09-38-13.png

·

Boom, this is EXACTLY what our good friend and sharp guy @shayne was talking about, I hope he sees this tag here with the @changelly issues, that continue tied to or linked same time with @poloniex!!!

Thank you for the warning... I see a lot of people complaining about the speed but not about missing money with Poloniex. The very suspicious would say that they manipulate suspending some coins to take advantage of its volatility.

·

That has been discussed for a long time, so you are on track in that regard @arnel

Thanks for the input here on Polo issues etc.

I think they sbd and steem withdraw Ann's deposit options have been temporarily down anyways, thank God for that because i sass looking time transfer a bunch. To be honest i have alot of litecoin and steem "pending" in poloniex and its got me nervous, which is code for pissed off haha.

Thanks for the update, upvoted and following!

I'm only using Bittrex... but happy to pass the info along if it can help!

It FOR SURE will help people. The comments in the last 2 posts on my page about this topic really hit home that new people in particular are being helped and that is good news man.

That's what's important... helping the new people! Lord knows you helped me when I came on here... we don't get to talk much anymore, but your friendship is still very important!

By the way... The B's just drafted a guy from Oshawa... Jack Studnicka (sp?)

@barrydutton yeah dude i think poloniex keeps lazy and cheap labour for more profit my xrp withdrawl error support ticket is still pending from 3 weeks but still no labour
Cheap poloniex
#upvote

·

Polo are deep into Steem. So what happens there?

·
·

I've been wondering the same, honestly, I tagged the poloniex account here on Steemit a few mins ago in replies.

You see, everybody is always, this is not regulated, this has no central database, there's no government, derp, wurp, woot woot!!! And then they get fucked! And that's the reason why 'joe simple' will never trust cryptos, and why there's still a big chance to lose everything bigtime! So remember to fucking cash out now and then unless you really like crying a lot!

Thanks for the warning. I for one will take it to heart. I sure hope these problems sort themselves out.

I honestly wouldn't worry about it. They are handling everything. It just takes a little extra time with all of the traffic the website is getting. I personally am pulling my LISK out and sometimes the transaction is instant, and at other times it will pend for a day or so. They have actually improved their speed from a couple of months ago.

·

It's a great idea but if you look at the numbers across the board for LISK, they honestly are nowhere near the market cap or saturation rate or number of coins of STEEMIT or obv. ETH, so they are never going to have the issues the big coins have.

There was another episode with a Guy who lost 20000$ from bittrex exchange while being online...Don't know what is happening with the exchange and transfer sites. Don't know who to trust and what to do right now. I Pray that The Guy and you both get the problem solved. The poor guy had emotional breakdown as the Bittrex Care were not responding to the call. So Guys be careful out there... This posts is jus a sincere warning to all who use cryptocurrency. Be Extra Careful and Keep Upvoting...Steem on!!!

Thanks for sure my man!!!!!

you are welcome mate...already did resteem yesterday...that was very informative and people need to be cautious...Thanks Again...also if you could take time and visit some of my posts that would do a big help for me.

I stopped using these assholes about a month back when they started with all the fuckery and "DDoS attacks " More like they need to use some fee income to buy new servers which really sucks because I I use to make a good return lending there. Hopefully they will work all this mess out soon till then great post

·

Thanks, great reply.

Check out my blog page, you might like some other stuff there!!!

Thank you for providing an update to the situation. It is scary to think how much value is just sitting in the Poloniex account. I hope this does not turn out like the old days where exchanges got caught just stealing from themselves… Not saying this is happing here, or that I even recall which exchanges did such a thing back in the day. It just alarming to start seeing issues like start to form.

I am also going assume by you resharing this information Poloniex has not come out and made a further statements. Most alarming indeed.

What is a plausible alternative! I heard bittrex stole form someone but apparently it's a fake bleeding heart scam!

Great post! I dont have any steem on poloniex but i do have bytecoin and it has been two weeks unavailable for withdrawal👎 thats why i like to use bittrex seems to be working best😁

Making me think twice about having a poloniex account if they disable like that without giving anybody further heads up so they can withdraw some amount.

thanks for sharing this important information

This seems to have flared up repeatedly in the past few months.
Thanks for the alarmism, I think it's merited.

Where you were some days ago? I sent my SBD to Polo but they still not credited yet. I thought It was because of HF19...

Thank you for the information, keep on working.

·

Thanks for that, and please consider resteeming the post to help others. These 2 posts over 2 days have helped a lot of people I noticed!!!

if we cant trust poloniex what exchanges should we use? what are the top ones can anyone help?

It's probably related to the Ethereum congestion and HF 19. I don't think they are scamming just buckling under the huge demand and support issues. Either way never trust an exchange with large amounts of crypto! Steem on @barrydutton

so our balance will stay on hold till this end

I had 5 Ether in the wind for 5 days. If I had not noticed that it had not arrived, nothing would have been done. Poloniex had marked it "completed" and the Ethereum blockchain showed it had not even been broadcast.

Two days trying to open a ticket, a day waiting, two more after they said they would try resending the transfer. this is getting crazy.

·

I was most encouraged when I got back in the house at 10 pm and saw your vote and @blocktrade's and @canadian-coconut's and others to get this thing trending so more people would see this!!!

Yes, well you know what I am dealing with and cannot afford to lose the $500 I proved to everyone for SBD which like you is twisting in the wind and not there 1.5 days later.

TY for the vote and also for your detailed reply.

--

Honestly if stuff like this happens to a crypt yoda veteran like you, people need to know who you are --- and thus it can happen to anyone!!!!!

You have way too many tabs open in that screen shot. LOL. Hope you have a great time at steem-fest!

·

Hahahaha, that is awesome.

2 weeks ago, one great guy on here did a post dedicated to me for his 1000th post about me and my tabs, you really should find that article, it was stunning LOL

Very true!

Please resteem this post to help others!

We're somewhat new to crypto's and had recently been considering poloniex but after this hell nooooooooo. We've been with coinbase and I have an open ledger account. Any other good suggestions?

·

Hopefully you have read some of the comments here, there are a lot of good suggestions and Bittrex keeps coming up.

I use BTRX myself

·
·

Yep. I'm gonna have to look into BTRX. Thank you!

·

NP my friend, share the post, help others too.

Are there any particular exchanges that anyone can recommend? I'm totally new to cryptocurrencies. Thanks for the advanced warning!!

This is terrible , thanks for spreading the info @barrydutton.

I do know you shared last night's and I wanted this 2nd one 12 hours apart to go up, recover stuff and deal with the ETH issues.

TY for your hard work and support of so many posts which helps a lot of people man!!!

God bless ya SS.

BD

I'm glad to see I inspired you 2 of your best paid post!

I'm new to the scene. What are some other trusted trading platforms for Steem that I can use?

I have a 300+ sbd transfer from like 6 days ago that still has not arrived in my polo account. :(

I love the acronym, of team. Thank you for the advice and work you do!

But bittrex gives less bitcoins than poloniex in exchange for steem or SBD....
Shouldn't one wait for poloniex to remove the bug and than use it... As risk is in both exchanges

Yeah, I think we should usr Bitrrex instead. I feel like I can trust them.

·

I think the same & almost made transfer but wait to be sure that my money wont disappear!

·
·

Im on Bittrex now @bob3fu it looks much better and has an auto sell feature, Good customer support and track record.

I saw that, all of the issues you mentioned are on the site as ongoing so I passed on signup. Not sure where to go next. Oh and yeah the rates looked way out of wack. Best to just move on I guess.

@barrydutton I transferred 4 ETH to another wallet from Poloniex but it never arrived. Im still waiting. The transfer said sent immediately after i put in my 2FA. The tx id is totally not found on ethereum block explorer. The ether was however still zeroed out by poloniex.

Aparently many many others have the same issue. This is horrible.

I am very helpful with the information from you, thank you. Is there any suggestion from you i want to withdrawl

23 hours? Heck, I have been waiting 23 DAYS for my crypto deposit to show up on Polo. They have not even responded or acknowledged my service request.
https://steemit.com/steem/@mrosenquist/quickly-losing-confidence-in-poloniex

Thank you for the warning , but...isn't this "sky is falling " thing only going to make people sell and eventually drop the price of cryptos . I've noticed a lot of red for this week . I'm very new to this btw.

Very informative post. Poloniex sets Deposits and withdrawals to "Temporarily Disabled" when a problem appears. Maybe this is a kind of protection due to the problems appeared.

LIKE I SAID!! TIME TO GET RID OF THE (BAD) MAN IN THE MIDDLE!!!
“Many (EXCHANGES) appeared to be Middle Men who got in to position and were there to take, screw and gauge as much as possible, some were just financial mafia skimming operations doing just enough to keep the pretence going until they collapsed. There were punishing exchange rates and processing fees too.”
