Significantly more trades on Binance vs. Poloniex?

Happy PT user here. I have PT setup to run against both Binance and Poloniex using identical BUY settings and DCA settings. I've noticed that PT is doing a lot more trades on Binance by a factor of 2x.
Anybody experienced this?
I don't know if it's specific to PT or, more probably, something different about the two exchanges.
Would love some feedback.

Something beautiful is happening on the Steem blockchain right now

The community is coming together and voting up their witnesses to surpass the Justin Sun witnesses that are using Steemit inc ninjamined stake that was never meant to vote for witnesses and take over governance. Binance and Huobi backed off and unvoted the witnesses after pushback on Twitter, Poloniex is still voting. Basically anyone on this list with 0 missed blocks belongs to Justin Sun/Tron: https://steemd.com/witnesses and if you look at the top witness: https://steemd.com/@yabapmatt you can see the amount of witness votes coming in from all the users on Steem.
If you want to help, do a bankrun on Binance and withdraw your liquid Steem to your Steem accounts, no need to power up if you don't want to wait 3 months to liquidate it again but this will prevent Justin Sun from buying more to vote in his witnesses which he's doing on this account: https://steemd.com/@hkdev404
Bittrex has not colluded in witness voting and is one of the only exchanges left with liquid Steem right now, the other 3 have close to no liquid Steem left.
History in the making of DPOS governance and the community fighting back vs Tron forcefully taking over and wanting to push a hardfork to reduce powerdowns drastically that might break how voting on posts works and possibly break the chain due to 7 day reward payout from the reward pool.
Feel free to ask if you want to know more!

WINk Monthly Report March 2020

WINk Monthly Report March 2020

WINk Monthly Report March 2020
March has understandably proved a difficult month for many businesses around the globe. Whilst our thoughts are with everyone that is negatively affected by Covid-19, we can not let it go unnoticed that WINk; in terms of business has had a very successful month. We will talk about what we have achieved in March, what the team are working on and what impact the lockdown has had on WINk. Most noticeably the increase in earnings for our token holders and profit for the platform.
Monthly drops February vs March -
As our current users are aware WINk focuses on wealth redistribution with its users. The daily profits generated from wink.org are shared amongst its token holder’s.
Holding $WIN token and freezing it under the WINdrops section of the platform, entitles you to a share of the profits generated from ALL games played on WINK. Each subsection of wink pays a certain percentage to the WIN pool, which accumulates throughout a 24 hour period and then distributes the total amount of $TRX $BTT and $USDT once every 24 hours, to its frozen token holders. The amount of $TRX our users received in March has almost doubled compared with the previous month of February, this is a result of the increase in players and volume that we have experienced.
WIN DROPS — $TRX earnings below are based on having 1 million WIN tokens frozen for the month.
February 2020: 124 trx
March 2020: 240 trx
WINk also has sub tokens that you can freeze to earn an extra share of the profits from each different section of wink.org. The only way to earn these tokens currently is through playing the games that fall under their own categories, they cannot be purchased right now, but will be tradeable in the future. Here are the earnings for having 1000 LIVE or DICE tokens frozen during the months of February and March.
LIVE DROPS — $TRX earnings below are based on having 1000 live tokens frozen for the month.
February 2020: 56 trx
March 2020: 225 trx
DICE DROPS — $TRX earnings below are based on having 1000 DICE tokens frozen for the month.
February 2020: 125 trx
March 2020: 178 trx
Increase of DAU and site traffic for the whole platform -
March really has been a great month for us, with a 20% increase in Daily average users (DAU) and 18% increase in site traffic — March has seen an impressive increase in profit for WINk with Gross gaming revenue (GGR) increasing by +111.48% on its previous month’s figures.
Super slots Friday and growth of LIVE platform -
The LIVE platform has been performing exceptionally well throughout March. We have added a total of 45 new slot games during this time from the following gaming providers: PUSH gaming, NetEnt, Microgaming, Fugaso, Reel NRG and Kalamba. We have continued with the ‘Super Slots Friday’ events and offer 2x LIVE mining bonuses every Friday, where players can earn double the amount of LIVE tokens for their wagering. We are pleased this has such a positive effect on the community and players and will continue with this, bringing you more choice and a bigger selection of games throughout April.
Sports betting -
Sportsbook betting — As expected has taken a big hit in turnover during March, however, our sportsbook still shows a healthy profit margin. With the world’s sporting events coming to a halt, we will be focusing on Esport and Virtual betting promotion throughout April as we did during March. We will be working closely with the sports team as always, to ensure this popular part of our platform is utilized to its full potential. This will also enable them the time to concentrate on development and work on adding extra features to make WINk sportsbook the strongest in the market.
Buyback and burn -
WINk team continued with the monthly buyback and burn and the figures for March are as follows -
The Buyback amount — 376,007,636 WIN.
Buyback hash: https://tronscan.org/#/transaction/6894c11fd6c6424a04991f06565941028f68b1a5fd3a971a17987867e96967fe
The wager burn pool amount — 45,648,972 WIN.
Wager hash: https://tronscan.org/#/transaction/3402628bb5cabb373a2b93388afc6ba78c05dfa586be41b0f623cd7906b299f6
The combined total amount for March — 421,656,563 WIN burnt.
WINk news -
  • WINk had an article published during March which highlighted the positives of playing on wink.org during the Covid-19 Lockdown. You can read the article here — Vegas vs Blockchain — Blockchain doesn’t shut Down
  • We released a medium post in March to show you all the design of our new User interface, this included screenshots of the UI and information on what the team will be working on once the UI is integrated you can read more about it here — WINk New UI Update — WINk Foundation
  • WINk and DLive. We had our own section added to DLive on the 27th of March and subsequently opened up a competition for the community to apply to become the first official, sponsored WINk streamer. More details of this to come in April. If you would like to enter please use the following google form and fill in your details — https://forms.gle/HcHxLXKLFSYiHRkTA
New E-games being made -
One of the most important updates this month for the community, was the announcement made alongside the new UI article. WINk will have a new E-game, this game is coming along much faster than we anticipated. The new game will be integrated in the month of May, following that there will be two more games under development for Egaming.
New exchange listings and Poloniex wallet -
The Poloniex wallet integration continues and we will release more information about this when it is ready.
New staff and Community information -
In March we got a new telegram chat moderator. ImRedryan” joined us as a community moderator inside Wink Main telegram channel, covering an important time that was previously unfilled. Meaning we now have somebody available 24 hours a day to assist the community.
WINk telegram had an AMA with CTO Eric, to further explain the recent decisions made by the team to concentrate solely on their own platform and current sub tokens.
We will, of course, continue to hire more staff, including support staff. This is to ensure we have assistance readily available for any issues that arise during playing on the platform.
We thank you for your continued support WINksters and look forward to what April and the beginning of Q2 will bring.

US Gov is Hostile to US Citizen Crypto Users

I was doing a double take to look at the fees on coinbase and I realized it is by far the highest in the industry. Even my backwater offshore forex sites that charge a 22% spread which I thought was criminal are half as much as coinbase. .22% vs .50% on coinbase.

I just saw even more bad news. Apparently the holding company for ledgerX the exchange did a hostile take over and put the CEOs on administrative leave. I find it extremely fishy that the only non legacy wallstreet derivative exchange that is regulated in the united states has repeatedly had huge set backs and drama, it strikes me as though there is a concerted effort by the likes of Baakt, Fidelity, and CME to engage in monopolistic behavior.
Then we look at the total shitshow that Bittrex became, and then Poloniex boots Americans completely, Binance is forced into making a US division which they give executive powers to a ripple wallstreet CEO. Local Bitcoins is shut down. Mnuchin on tv making open threats to bitcoiners. ICO bans. Endless IRS bullshit.
What blows my mind is that the obvious isn't obvious to the average american crypto user. That the government is making concerted anti free market decisions to absolutely knee cap our options, driving exchanges out of the space and colluding with Brian Armstrong while basically doing everything it humanly can to give the reigns to wallstreet with extreme and I mean EXTREME intermediary custodian bullshit by the likes of fidelity. They refuse to give us regulated high leverage derivative platforms, don't allow retail to even fucking use CME or Baakt.

Honestly the only good regulated platform left is Kraken. If they take Kraken I'm just hodling and resorting to legacy finance where I can at least trade crude oil in fucking peace.

The point of the story, is that Andreas Antonopolis is right about everything. We need an interchain, we need full DeFi unseizable DEX ecosystems with no FUCKING EXCHANGE NO FUCKING EXCHANGE REGULATED BY THE USA NO NO NO.
We need defi everything. I saw a guy in china working on building a DEX version of bitmex, I say good riddance, DEX everything, until there's nothing left to DEX. Host it all on IFPS.
You sheeple really gotta wake up and stop letting the boomers regulate us into poverty, the regulatory situation in the united states is disgraceful. They are trying to make bitcoin not bitcoin. If you give them an inch they will take a mile.
We need the #interchain with the likes of plasma and cosmos, and raden, and so forth. These son of a bitches keep talking about intermediaries. and custodian this, and everything about goddamn walstreet,

Take a look around, look at cash app, coinbase, bitterex, poloniex, gemini, the options for US citizen are a steaming pile of horse shit.

We can't settle for this.

Update: Hi /r/ethtrader! I quit my job to start Cointaxes. Here to answer questions about taxes and digital currencies! I published a YouTube series on top questions, launched crypto tax tools and would love your input on ANY other topics or questions! :)

Hi /ethtrader! Thank you for reading!
In the last two months since I posted here, my team and I have been hard at work trying to make everyone's lives a bit easier for cryptocurrency and tax. In fact, we will be able to launch some tools this summer that will help optimize your trades from a tax perspective - as you make them. We think there's a chance we could even make it tax advantageous to use crypto vs. fiat... more on that later. For now, we would love to get your feedback on what we're working on.
The TLDR: We made Cointaxes so you can estimate your tax liability and whether or not you have FINCEN obligations for free on our site. It was important to make this summary information free because our mission is create confidence and certainty around cryptocurrencies.
Please let me know if you have any questions or comments (I'll probably respond to every comment here!)
Watch a Cointaxes' YouTube Series answering the top questions How are cryptocurrencies taxed? Why should you pay this year? Am I taxed when I convert into fiat or pull money out of my exchanges? What about mining and airdrops? All this and more is covered!
We launched a tool to help measure your FINCEN requirements for FBAR & FATCA
In my last post, I mentioned a "fun" fact around FINCEN requirements. The media is talking about this more (i.e. CNBC - "How cryptocurrency investors could find themselves behind bars"). The good news is it's really simple for the ledger technology we built to check if you cross the $10,000 or $50,000 thresholds. On our site, Cointaxes, you can add your exchanges and then check if you have crossed the threshold. Importantly, we wanted to make this critical information available for free. Particularly because the the deadline is April 15.
If you fail to file the FBAR, the deadline will be extended to October 15. You can read more about this on official government sites General FBAR information, FBAR FAQS (not super helpful IMO) and the online form itself.
About Cointaxes
Cointaxes was formed and funded with the mission to establish confidence and certainty around cryptocurrency. We have a base tax preparation tool with support for Coinbase, GDAX, Binance, Bittrex, Poloniex, and Kraken.
We made Cointaxes so you can estimate your tax liability and whether or not you have FINCEN obligations for free on our site. Your detailed reports or Form 8949 for tax filing is behind a modest paywall compared to what we've seen other tools out there charging.
We see global adoption of digital currencies as an inevitability. The uncertainty lies in how effectively and smoothly this once-in-a-lifetime shift occurs. As a tax preparation service, we have a special seat in the cryptocurrency ecosystem directly related to this uncertainty: it is our job to help both citizens and governments around the world understand how to use and treat digital currencies.
If our mission excites you
Newsletter update
If you want to stay on top of regulatory and tax related crypto news (as well as when we roll out shiny new tools) then consider subscribing to our newsletter.
If you signed up for our newsletter two months ago - sorry for the lack of content! We've been too focused on trying to get this product up and running in time for the deadline (barely made it!) We recently expanded our team and will be able to be much more consistent about the content we're creating!
Important Disclaimers: For this post and any of my replies to your questions below... this is not tax advice and should not be relied upon for making any tax decisions. We always recommend speaking to a tax professional before making decisions related to your taxes and our guides are not a substitute for tax advice.

Trading VS copy trading: what to choose?

Trading VS copy trading: what to choose?
In the digital age, information has become available to a wide audience. Now users can not only easily access training materials on trading, but follow the professionals as well. Let’s try to understand what is preferable to choose when trading cryptocurrencies.
Trading VS copy trading: what to choose?

What is copy trading and how does it differ from manual trading?

Copy-trading allows you to copy trades of other traders automatically without manual intervention. This eliminates the need to constantly monitor the market and spend all the time monitoring charts.

Pros and cons of independent trading

Manual trading requires a lot of practice and self-control. It is necessary to constantly learn, and test different strategies and picking the most effective ones. With the proper approach, independent trading can be much more profitable than copy trading.
The main advantage of manual trading is that the trader does not transfer the responsibility to anyone, but takes them solely by himself. Even experienced traders can succumb to emotions and make typical mistakes.
Copy-trading allows you to learn from the trades of other market players. The trader does not necessarily have to immediately copy the trades of professionals. He can follow the trades of a professional, analyze his strategies and learn on his mistakes without risking his own funds.

Summary

Copy trading is great for beginners, and as your skills develop, it is better to gradually move to independent trading. If you are new to cryptocurrency exchanges, you can use the Autotrading function, which is provided by the trade-mate.io service. The site has useful guides on its use. The platform works with three major exchanges: Binance, Bitmex, and Poloniex.
Experienced traders can be certified by the trade-mate team and make more money by providing other traders with signals to buy and sell cryptocurrencies.

Bitcoin Cash: A Reflection on How Far We’ve Come

On August 1, Bitcoin resumed its original roadmap, scaling on-chain towards global adoption as Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash.
It’s been just 3 and a half months since Bitcoin Cash broke away from BTC in order avoid a software mutation called Segwit, and to restore progress and growth to the ecosystem.
After a recent price rally that saw us reach 0.5 BTC ($3000), the reality is setting in that an overnight ‘flippening’ scenario that some people hoped for is unlikely, and that we have a longer road ahead.
It’s really important to remember how much has been achieved in such a short time.
Let’s take a moment to reflect on how far we’ve come as a young community.
July:
August:
September:
October:
November:
This rate and scale of industry adoption is unprecedented.
With every BTC holder receiving an equal amount of Bitcoin Cash, and with the price over $1300, the rate and scale of user adoption is unprecedented.
With fast, reliable transactions and fees that are less than 1 cent, and with both BitPay & Coinbase hinting at a full Bitcoin Cash integration, the rate and scale of merchant adoption will be unprecedented.
With unprecedented industry, user and merchant adoption, it’s only a matter of time until Bitcoin Cash becomes the default medium of exchange and store of value cryptocurrency.
The old Bitcoin is back. You can feel it. It’s the resurgence of a grassroots movement not seen for years. People are putting Bitcoin Cash posters in the streets, handing out leaflets, tipping strangers a few dollars online, and asking in forums how they can contribute to the community.
Just in the last couple of days a ‘Bitcoin Cash Fund’ was established, to assist with marketing and projects. The initial goal was $200 to make a short animated advert, but over $17,000 has been donated already. All of this positivity and energy is inspiring.
While businesses are being forced to abandon BTC due to exorbitant and skyrocketing fees (upwards of $10), they’re being cheered on every day as they embrace Bitcoin Cash.
The original vision is still alive. As an early bitcoiner, I’ve never been more optimistic.
Make sure you involve yourself in the community, we’re just getting started :)

Buying Ether in Canada, my experience with different exchanges

Hello, I'm writing about my experiences buying ethereum in Canada, essentially converting CAD to ETH. The goal is to help beginners that are interested in getting started but don't know where to actually buy ether. There's a lot of info out there but most of it seems to be centered around USD, which doesn't always translate for CAD and our banking system. I'm by no means an expert but I figured someone might find this information helpful.
I've verified and used the following sites, so I'll be writing about them:
If you just want the gist of it, a super-quick summary of what I found:
With every one of these sites, there's usually some form of verification. This involves taking a picture of some piece of government ID (usually passport or drivers license), as well as some sort of proof of address such as a utlity bill. Some sites require you to take a selfie with some of that documentation or holding a handwritten sign. It seemed sketchy to me at first, but every place does it.
Coinbase
This was the first place I tried. Their only payment methods I could find are Visa and MasterCard, of which they charge a 3.75% convenience. With reward cards you might get 1%-2% back, but this is a fairly high fee. The bright side is it's just about instantaneous.
One thing I noticed is that their sell price is about ~$5 higher than a few exchanges. For example, as I write this, it's $119.23 on coinbase. On kraken it's 113.99 for a market order.
There is a weekly $200 limit on the amount to buy. A 30 day countdown started after I spent $500 to increase the limit. I can't find what the new limit amount will be once that countdown reaches 0 though.
So far, I've been with them for over a month and I've bought $600 worth of ether. The first time I bought it only took a minute to get sent to my private address. The second time it took ~40 minutes for it to actually get sent to my private ether address, but this was due to some issues they were having, probably just a fluke. I've bought two more times since then and both times it was instant.
To summarize
Pros:
Cons:
QuadrigaCX
Hoping to get lower fees, this was the second place I tried. They accept a lot more payments with a variety of fees, I'll list them out:
Funding Type Daily Limits Time Frame Fee Verification
Electronic Funds Transfer Min $250, Max $10,000 5 Business Days 5% required
Interac e-Transfer Min $500, Max $5,000 Next Business Day 2% + $5 required
Interac Online Min $50, Max $2,000 Instant (but may be held 24 hours by security) 1.5% (min. $5) required
Bank Wire Min $100,000, Max $500,000 2-4 Business Days Free required
Crypto Capital Min $500, Max $500,000 24 hours Free required
Electronic Funds Transfer replaced their "direct bank transfer" option, and while I think it's great since I think every bank supports it, it unfortunately has a rather high fee at 5%. I don't really see why you would use this though, if you can use Interac Online, it's faster. If you need the higher daily limit, a bank wire would be cheaper too.
Interac e-Transfer I'd go with this if your bank doesn't support Interac Online and if you don't mind the 2% fee. If you're doing a large amount, the Bank Wire would be a better choice, depending on how much your bank charges you.
Interac Online seems like the best choice for less than $2000. Unfortunately even though my bank card says "Interac" on it, and the bank is listed as supported, I can't use it for Interac Online because the card is both a debit and visa card. I've read that RBC and BMO are the only banks that support this, so it may be worth signing up with them.
Bank Wire ended up being what I used (EDIT: back then the minimum for a wire transfer was $500). I wanted to deposit a larger sum, so just paying my bank for the cost of the transfer ended up being worthwhile (about 0.5% fee). The downside is I had to go in person to a branch to send a wire transfer and it's only really worthwhile for larger transfers.
Crypto Capital seems like a 3rd party that you can wire to and then transfer that to QuadrigaCX. I don't see the appeal in using this to fund an account since you can just wire to QuadrigaCX directly.
I sent the wire transfer a few days ago, and it seems like it will take 3-5 business days for it to complete. I'll update this post if the money somehow just disappears. Wire transfer came through today, no problems :)
Once you do get CAD on QuadrigaCX, the fees to buy Ether are 0.5%. Combined with my wire transfer cost, I expect to only have paid a total of 1% in fees.
To summarize
Pros:
Cons:
Kraken
The latest site I've tried, they have multiple tiers of verification. You can't deposit CAD until you reach tier 3 verification, which can take up to 48 hours.
Tier 1 and tier 2 were verified within the hour but tier 3 was still not verified 3 days later. When I submitted a support ticket, they were very quick to respond the next day and told me I needed to submit a Confirmation ID. Their site listed the Confirmation ID for a few countries and some criteria but it didn't seem like Canada applied to any of the criteria. Regardless, I submitted the Confirmation ID and was verified with tier 3 that same day.
The only way to deposit CAD with Kraken is through wire transfer and it seems like there's some unlisted fees based on what their banks charge them to receive a wire transfer (as well as any intermediary bank). I have not done this so I cannot tell what the costs would be.
Once you do have CAD on their exchange, their fees are better than QuadrigaCX with a MakeTaker rate at 0.16%/0.26%.
I have sent ether to Kraken just for playing around with trading and I've had no problems.
To summarize
Pros:
Cons:
Coinsquare
Verified today and decided to try the Interac e-transfer. This is when I encountered a problem (at least on firefox), for funding the account, they have a javascript button to dismiss an overlay before you can do the e-transfer. The html element for the button is an href and has a 'blank="target"' property on it. When I press this button, it opens a blank new tab, and nothing changes on the page. Running the javascript function manually causes the alert to be removed and it works as expected. This is a little insane that I had to have knowledge of html to get access to it. Their site has been improved a significant amount and I haven't ran into these kinds of problems since.
Anyway the e-transfer itself worked perfectly, it funded my account, and I think it's my favourite way to transfer CAD into exchanges so far. Only a 2.5% fee and only takes a few minutes to be in my account. They also have wire transfer, money order, and bank order, but I think other exchanges have a much better interface.
Buying Ethereum was a bit more confusing since (as far as I can tell) you can't trade CAD to ETH directly, you have to trade CAD for BTC first, and then trade that BTC for ETH.
The interface for placing an order was confusing to me compared to Kraken or QuadrigaCX, but I figured it out. Although I was interested in seeing how many orders there were and for how much, but I wasn't able to find that.
Buying BTC has a trade fee of 0.1%, and then trading for ETH has a trade fee of 0.2%. Overall total fees for e-transfer were ~1.3%~ 2.8% now, which is great considering what other fees are and how fast it is in comparison. If you can get past the interface, e-transfer is the way to go.
Funding Type Daily Limits Time Frame Fee Verification
Interac Online Min $100, Max $2,000 Instant (withheld for 3 days) 2.5% not required
Intac e-Transfer Min $100, Max $3,000 1-3 days (withheld 0-7 days) 5% required
Flexepin Min $20, Max $500 instant 2.5% required
Bank draft Min $1000, Max $9,000 0-2 days (withheld 0-5 days) 0.25% required
Money Order Min $100, Max $1,000 0-2 days (withheld 0-5 days) 0.25% required
Wire transfer Min $10,000, Max $300,000 0-1 day (withheld 0-2 days) 0.5% required
They have this concept of withholding funds, where you basically have to keep the money on the account. You can trade with it as much as you want, but you won't be able to withdraw until after the withholding time.
Pros:
Cons:
Alternatives
There are of course other sites to get ether, and there's always the option of getting bitcoin and exchanging it through an exchange like Kraken or Poloniex for ether. There are bitcoin ATMs scattered around as well, but I can't comment on any fees involved or how close they match exchange prices.
Other sites I checked out:
Alt Coins
The main sites for getting CAD into the cryptocurrency space like QuadrigaCX, Coinbase, Kraken, and Coinsquare don't have a lot of altcoins. Fortunately once you have ether you can send it to another exchange and trade that for altcoins. These are my favourite ones:
Funnily enough, this whole experience has made me appreciate the flexibility cryptocurrency like ether has and served as a reminder to how slow and cumbersome transactions become once the banking system is involved.
EDIT: received wire transfer through QuadrigaCX, made account with coinsquare.
EDIT2: added coinsquare section
EDIT3: updated QuadrigaCX and coinsquare section, updated alternatives list
EDIT4: Added e-transfer for QuadrigaCX!
EDIT5: Cleaned up alt coins section.

Bitcoin Cash: A Reflection on How Far We’ve Come

On August 1, Bitcoin resumed its original roadmap, scaling on-chain towards global adoption as Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash.
It’s been just 3 and a half months since Bitcoin Cash broke away from BTC in order avoid a software mutation called Segwit, and to restore progress and growth to the ecosystem.
After a recent price rally that saw us reach 0.5 BTC ($3000), the reality is setting in that an overnight ‘flippening’ scenario that some people hoped for is unlikely, and that we have a longer road ahead.
It’s really important to remember how much has been achieved in such a short time.
Let’s take a moment to reflect on how far we’ve come as a young community.
July:
August:
September:
October:
November:
This rate and scale of industry adoption is unprecedented.
With every BTC holder receiving an equal amount of Bitcoin Cash, and with the price over $1300, the rate and scale of user adoption is unprecedented.
With fast, reliable transactions and fees that are less than 1 cent, and with both BitPay & Coinbase hinting at a full Bitcoin Cash integration, the rate and scale of merchant adoption will be unprecedented.
With unprecedented industry, user and merchant adoption, it’s only a matter of time until Bitcoin Cash becomes the default medium of exchange and store of value cryptocurrency.
The old Bitcoin is back. You can feel it. It’s the resurgence of a grassroots movement not seen for years. People are putting Bitcoin Cash posters in the streets, handing out leaflets, tipping strangers a few dollars online, and asking in forums how they can contribute to the community.
Just in the last couple of days a ‘Bitcoin Cash Fund’ was established, to assist with marketing and projects. The initial goal was $200 to make a short animated advert, but over $17,000 has been donated already. All of this positivity and energy is inspiring.
While businesses are being forced to abandon BTC due to exorbitant and skyrocketing fees (upwards of $10), they’re being cheered on every day as they embrace Bitcoin Cash.
The original vision is still alive. As an early bitcoiner, I’ve never been more optimistic.
Make sure you involve yourself in the community, we’re just getting started :)

I’m Doomed by Crypto Regulation UK TAX...

Hi, I just start read about tax in UK … I think I m f#!k… I'm in this situation:
I started investing in crypto world in beginning of September 2017. From September to January I registered to total of 6 markets (to get coins which were unavailable on other markets…) I’m registered with my ID to: Coinfloor, Poloniex and Bittrex and I'm on Binance, Cryptopia and Gate in incognito mode.
I Invested in all this markets around 15000 GBP(my life savings which were also in many other currencies USD/GBP etc.)
I done around 350 sell/buy transactions on all markets for around 400000 GBP in total sell/ buy transactions (sometimes I was daily trading for few weeks, than break for few weeks, or over month and than again for few days and that activity was from September till end of January - than I stop since marked crushed - I was holding most of my portfolio from December where I had great gains = 40000 GBP+...) Am I going to be qualified as an Investor or Trader in this situation??? Since as an Investor I can get 11300 CGT relief for 2017/2018 year.
I remember that at the end of March I was minus 20% with my portfolio but I never sell anything since “HODL” and according to HRMC tax policy at that moment I was still earned over 40000 GBP since that was my total profit in the end of December… I did not report that since I had no clue about Crypto TAX UK… till present day I’m still holdin all my portfolio I do some trades once a week but from my all gains 15k + 40k left only around 6000 GBP so it is minus 60% till present day from my original contribution!....
I’m devastated after read few articles about TAX in UK - I live here for over 7 years I’m foreign and I study IT and work part time day job (my Income Tax for 2017/2018 year was around 11000 GBP) and I had no idea how crypto TAX here works…
I heard that if you made buy/sell transaction for 4* CGT(11300*4=45200 GBP for 2017/2018) you need to report it to HRMC I made over 400000 GBP on all markets (it was easy when btc was around 14000 GBP - it was like 4 transaction in December...
In September at beginning I was buying btc for 4000 GBP and selling for 4010 GBP to just easy earn 10 GBP - I was total noob that time and I had no knowledge about trading and tax regulation here... )
The worst is that I did not reported it to HMRC (time was till 6 April 2018) since I didn’t know that I have to do so… what should I do now since I’m almost 6 month after tax report??? I thought that I don’t have to do that because I was in 1 of April minus 20% with my all investments and I didnt know about this 3 rules:
1. Same day rule: any crypto bought on the same day as the sale
2. Bed and Breakfasting rule: any crypto bought within 30 days of the sale
3. Crypto-pool rule: A pool of all previous crypto purchased, price averaged
I don’t have this money right now (20% from 40000 gain = I own 8000 GBP TAX) what should I do? Right now from my part time job I earn just 750 GBP per month I have expenses = 250 room where I live, 150 food, 250 Bank (loan for crypto…) and I have just 100 GBP saving monthly which I can give to HRMC ...
May I ask HRMC to split this 8000 TAX for over next 7 years? Of Course I will pay everything back faster - when crypto will rise back to the same level as before…
Beside that I was also mining and till present day I mined with my friend around 100 Zencash - I took (my 50% zen = 50 zen) put them to market and made extra 30 Zencash so in total I have now 80 Zencash - How should I deal with it? should I make a mining company with my friend? or may I put it as my all together investments to be fully legal with HRMC TAX?
Ps. I never took a penny from all my investments I still “HODL” all till present day… I thought that I need to pay tax only when I transfer money back to my Bank account and when it will be over my 15000 GBP primary contribution - than I need to report it to HRMC and pay for it....


So my questions are:

1. Am I going to be qualified as Investor or Trader in my situation and what kind of TAX will I pay in both situations???
2. Should I contact HRMC right now or wait few years till they will make some easier regulation? - since the old one are from 2014 and are absolutely terrible for crypto vs crypto exchange…
3. How should I deal with it when I’m normal part time employee - do I need to make self assessment account on HRMC?
4. Do I need to make a mining company with my friend or may I put it as my all together investments to be fully legal with HRMC TAX?
5. Is better idea to wait till March 2019 and than give them all my records for 2 years - till that time I can sell enough crypto to be in true minus 1% from my 15000 primary investment - would it mean that I don’t have to pay TAX?
6. What if I decide to make my TAX statement in March 2018/2019 - may I give them my two years transaction altogether, or do I need to make It separate for 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 TAX year?
7. How the best optimize cryptocurrency UK TAX in my situation?

Thank you for your time and that you have read my story! Any advice will be appreciated!

What can you do for GRS?

The success of a coin involves many things, including community support. Strong coins go hand in hand with strong communities.
Groestlcoin is not a company. The owners of GRS are the people who bought it and will buy it.
Here's a few things that a GRS community member could do:
1. Spread the word.
Tell others about GRS and its features. You can send them a few GRS so they can test the wallets.
2. Donate.
We created 2 donation funds, one for marketing and one for development. The marketing fund will be used for ads and bounties. The development fund will be use mainly for projects made by community members. Right now some members are working on a very interesting project that will help GRS gain more visibility. Can't say more :)
https://www.groestlcoin.org/donations/
3. Bounty.
300 GRS per month, from our marketing fund, will be used for Groestlcoin text and video content that is created by our community members. If you want to write or make a video about GRS you will be rewarded and in the same time you will help Groestlcoin.
Link: https://www.reddit.com/groestlcoin/comments/7dbd20/w_a_n_t_e_d_bounty_for_groestlcoin_articles_and/
4. Ask to pay with GRS.
Do you know a shop that accept cryptocurrencies? Ask them if you can also pay with GRS. Show them our website and tell them about our high speed and super low fee transactions.
5. Support other GRS members.
If you like a what other members say about GRS you can support them by upvoting, likeing or sharing their posts. That way you help spreading the information about GRS.
6. Ask exchanges for GRS integration.
Did you came accros an exchange that doesn't sell GRS? You can send them an email or message (Twitter, Facebook, Contact form) in which you ask for buying GRS.

My recent wire experience

Want to relay my recent experience to help other canucks entering the cryptocurrency scene. I wanted to invest 100K in both main coins and some alt coins. Depositing that amount can’t be done using ETF/bank-transfeetc. – the only reasonably quick way is to wire funds. For wires, most exchanges have a percentage based deposit fee – something that makes absolutely no sense to me. Whether you wire 1K or 1MM, the amount of work for the exchange is identical, so it should be a flat fee. Deciding on an exchange is more complicated than that though: each one has their own rules for minimums/maximums, trading fees, supported coins, holding periods, and withdrawal fees. They also can vary greatly on the amount of time verification takes. One thing to note is that pretty much all exchanges don’t charge a fee for inbound crypto transfers.
2 months ago I signed up for 10 exchanges (Coinbase/GDAX, Binance, Coinsquare, Kraken, ezBTC, QuadrigaCX, Bitfinex, Gemeni, Bittrex, Poloniex) and was verified on 7 of them (I’m still in queue for Gemeni, Bittrex, and Poloniex). Verification times gave me what I thought was a decent indicator of the level and quality of support I would receive.
Of these exchanges, some have what I believe to be relatively high trading fees (Gemeni .25%, Bittrex, .25%, ezBTC .30%, QuadrigaCX .50%) vs lower maketaker fees (GDAX 0/.3%, Binance .1/.1%, Gitfinex .1/.2%, Coinsquare .1/.2%, Kraken .16/.26%). Still others have high percentage based wire fees. And finally, there’s a big disparity between withdrawal fees: free on some exchanes, vs fixed rate based on the coin for others, vs Coinsquare’s insane fixed 0.0025 BTC regardless of what coin or the amount being withdrawn.
So here are some observations on the exchanges. Please note that the below is not a reflection on any of the people who work at the exchanges. I’m sure they are working as hard as they can and are doing their best. It’s just my experience. It’s also not financial advice. Also, I’m only human so feel free to offer corrections or better advice.
Coinsquare: amazingly fast verification time, and for very large deposits seems to likely be the best option as they will let you speak to a human being by phone and will waive the deposit fee (I didn’t know this until later though). I excluded them because of their high 0.5% percentage based deposit fee and their crazy high withdrawal fee. They also only have support for 6 coins.
QuadrigaCX: I had a terrible initial experience with QuadrigaCX’s support, so I immediately excluded them. They have high trading fees and there are many complaints of support tickets being ignored or having extremely lengthy wait times. They have a crazy high 1% percentage based CAD wire fee, but offer free USD wires. Note that they only support wires for large amounts.
GDAX/Coinbase: Loads of good reviews, but only has support for 4 coins. Seems like they also don’t have a fee for crypto withdrawals. You also can’t seem to wire CAD or USD funds directly to GDAX. I think you may have to wire USD funds to Coinbase and then transfer them over to GDAX (for free).
Kraken: I created an account but the verification page just appeared blank for me. After a few days, their support team got back to me telling me that they had a bug and that I needed to create a new account using a different email address and try again. That worked. I decided to use them as they seemed like the best all-around alternative. I was impressed with their support response (they gave me an answer that worked and responded in days as opposed to weeks), they offer a no-fee inbound CAD wire, support 16 coins, and have low (though not free) crypto withdrawal fees. They have also been around a while and have a good reputation (They were picked to handle MtGox claims). Wiring funds to them was a hair-raising experience though. You basically need to send your funds to an unknown bank in Tokyo, Japan. Kraken also has two slightly different sets of wire instructions: one that is on their website, and the other that their support folks send out. Only one of them mentions that you should tell your bank not to use an intermediary that will convert your currency. If you do things properly, and are lucky, you end up only paying ~$40 in fees. But chances are, you don’t, and end up paying 4%! (see https://www.reddit.com/BitcoinCA/comments/7rd6k8/fees_when_sending_to_krakencom/). You also have no idea how much the fees will be until the money finally shows up in your account. That’s tremendously unsettling. Luckily my bank branch manager was familiar with crypto currency wires and helped me do things properly. But, the wire took over 2 weeks to show up (Jan 18th), and Kraken support is so overloaded that they didn’t’ respond, despite me escalating my support ticket several times. I eventually had to resort to a reddit post to get a response to my support ticket. I gave support my wire receipt and answered lots of additional questions to help them try to “locate” it. Perhaps the worst part of my entire experience was that while my wire was being located, the entire crypto market tanked by 50%...and no one would respond to my support ticket…I felt helpless. A Kraken support rep a few days ago said that they are handing >50K new user registrations per day and have >20K new support tickets per day. I feel they should turn off new user registrations until they are capable of servicing existing customers. This is what their competitors have done. I found it disheartening to learn that the only way to get a response to my support ticket was to complain via social media --- many others have found the same. While I was waiting for my wire to appear Kraken had a >48h outage. Prior to the outage, the site was almost unusable as you’d receive constant 50x errors (I found this out prior to wiring my funds). After the outage, I find that their site is still barely usable. Pages take 10-15 seconds to load and when they do load many times they display errors so you have to continually retry until things work. At the end of the day though, they did come through for me: my wire arrived safely. So with my funds in Kraken, I tried to use them to purchase crypto. But no matter what I tried, none of the CAD dollar trading pairs would appear. I logged out and back in a few times and 15 minutes later, it suddenly started appearing. With the flakiness in Kraken’s platform, I had no choice but to transfer everything to a more stable and faster exchange:
Binance: These guys have their shit in order. Super simple site navigation once you get used to it, fast verification times, blazingly fast website and trading engine, more than 50 coins supported, etc. But, they don’t support fiat – you must use one of the other exchanges to buy crypto with fiat and then transfer in your crypto. Gotta say it again: everything is super fast. Not just the page loads, but also trading, email confirmations, and withdrawals. Trading takes a bit of getting used to as you aren’t really buying or selling crypto…you are instead “trading” one crypto coin for another. Depending on the coin you want to purchase, you might have to trade your coin for BNB (binance’s own coin) and then trade BNB for the coin you desire.
Be Your Own Bank: One final word of advice. Binance is awesome, but don’t trust anyone as despite everyone’s best intentions: no matter how secure a platform is, it can and will be hacked. As soon as you have done your shopping, transfer your coins off to your own wallet. This is why withdrawal fees are important.
You might be asking: in hindsight, if I had to do it all over again, what would I do differently? To wire CAD funds I would try to use Coinsquare if it’s a big amount (after re-reading other people’s recent reviews). For USD wires, I might try using Gemeni, but I still haven’t been verified by them and have been waiting for almost 2 months. Before using either I would re-test how long it takes for a support ticket to be responded to. If you do wire funds, don't wire an exact round amount like "10,000.00", instead I would wire "10,070.45" so that it's easier to locate if things go wrong. Once the account has been funded I wouldn’t hesitate to transfer everything to another exchange if I wasn’t happy with the platform, the number of coin offerings, or quality of service I was receiving: you can always come back when things improve.
Things change so quickly so not sure how helpful this will be…just wished I had known some of the above before starting.
