    @J_coshan @ummjackson Depends on what the “crumbling” is. If bitfinex is providing the below $1 bid and tether is collateralized, Bitfinex is earning wild profits as tether open interest falls. If tether is uncollateralized, it could certainly take down bitfinex.

When people are spreading blatant false info about Tether and Bitfinex and there are guys who KNOW it is false, we challenge. Like on any other issue with OKCoin or Bitstamp or Kraken or BitMEX

    @andr3w321 If Tether has the USD in bank accounts (big if) they need to exchange USDT for USD and credit the users. Then users can buy BTC on the open market or withdraw to their fiat bank accounts. The issue is that there is no USD/BTC trading pair on Bitfinex.

    @Tyche33110105 @SamHadzajlic @bitfinex And yes many people did have issues with the withdrawals taking far longer than normal, 4 days ago. Mentioning your experience 4 days later when others have received their withdrawals in an untimely manner is somewhat irrelevant. Maybe next time mention it immediately to help.

    @hasufl @vikramQL no one said bitfinex is shutting down. all I'm saying is tether buy back does not make sense. at least not usd 650mi in 10 days.

  • DennisRossdale
    Dennis ⚡️ (@DennisRossdale) reported

    1/ There is no doubt that #Tether and #Bitfinex have acted suspiciously, and should either prove their innocence or shut down. That being said, I think the prediction that this dooms all #crypto aggrandize the impact of a single exchange and a single stablecoin.

    Mr. G. (@petcal55) reported

    @Bitfinexed Perhaps Bitfinex is concerned about being arrested for exposing themselves...pants down, and flashing it, for the world to see. Not much to see, so, keep it zipped up Bitfinex, and, we'll let the audits do the exposing.

    Some peoples sarcasm detectors are clearly broken. Yes, I was being sarcastic about the banks of all exchanges being known killing cryptocurrency, to highlight the absurdity of Bitfinex's warning about "exposing our banks will hurt YOU and the entire token ecosystem!"

  • hasufl
    Hasu (@hasufl) reported

    @tomasrollo I think if they announced that while $2B USDT are still in circulation it would cause the spread to close because it confirms the theory that Bitfinex is trying to wind down Tether. Then the market will be much less inclinced to sell them USDT for less than $1.

    @JaPennz @SamHadzajlic @bitfinex I am eager to announce that my withdrawal was very easy and it worked fine. But I did not mention it earlier as felt its not that great and no one has the problem of withdrawal. I am the example for getting withdrawal done easily. My comments may help someone.

    @Crypto_Brahma If you don't have money to move the market, you have 50% chance on that. Either up or down. Do you really think people are scared of the 6k price anymore...low volume. no one is selling, it's just short sellers on exchanges that offer it. 36k btc shorts on bitfinex alone

    9/ Furthermore, although #Tether did trade at a significant discount, the flash crash down to $0.85 was quickly reversed as buyers of last resort like #Bitfinex and perhaps other speculators were willing to come in to the market.

    @nebraskangooner @Heyitsdave2 @cvrbonbased Gox was handling roughly 80 percent of trading volume when it was hacked, then frozen, declared bankruptcy. It’s like Bitmex/Bitfinex/GDAX all abruptly shutting down today without any viable/trusted options existing to go to.... imagine the fear in the market.

  • SandorReport
    TSS (@SandorReport) reported

    2/x Even if (big if) Tether is fully backed, the business of the largest exchanges, @Binance, @BittrexExchange etc is built on a token issued and controlled by one of their largest competitors. Tether / Bitfinex has a kill switch, and they can bring down your business any day.

    This is good. Hoping $USDT fades away quietly into the night without more fuss. #Bitfinex on the other hand, I hope they are taken down hard. But not before the #tether cancer is removed from most relevant exchanges.

    Disparity in price between USD and USDT exchanges wasn't meaningful until the breakdown on 11th which preceded the PnD on the 15th. Premium on Tether exchanges is down from ~$300 to ~$200. Bistamp / Coinbase are trading at ~$6390 Binance / Bitfinex are trading at ~$6610

    I’m sure 1 thing in the #Bitfinex “decentralized #banking” announcement is true: so many legal complications brought on them from the US and a survived hack. Their team knows how to deal almost everything by now, impossible to bring down from outside🤔#hydra

    @pachipachi01 @JonnyMoeTrades Being short means you are predicting that price will go down. So the 👆 post means that there are for more people predicting the price to go down on Bitfinex then up. You can profit from BTC moving up or down on some exchanges, Bitfinex being one of them.
