    @kingmr012 @mikerelentless @Egon_01 @Bitstamp @nejc_kodric Being anti government, as I am, has nothing to do with bitcoin. Bitcoin also won't make the government any more accountable or moral. They don't follow the same rules we are forced to by the government. Minimal local gov would be the only way to fix GOVERNANCE and those can be

    @ParamdeepO @AlexCobb_ @jack @xrptipbot A gateway is just a business that issues an IOU on the XRP Ledger. e.g. Bitstamp issue USD and BTC IOUs on the Ledger. You deposit BTC or USD with them and they give you an USD or BTC IOU in return. Anyone can issue IOUs, it harks back to the pre-Bitcoin idea RipplePay had.

    @Bitstamp not the best one, but works. You still have to fix some bugs

  • CaptainScio CaptainScio: FA and TA For BTC And Indices (@CaptainScio) reported

    Imagine other exchanges going down because of stupidity, losing people’s #Bitcoin because they don’t hold their own keys. #Binance, #Bitfinex, #Bitmex, #Bitstamp, #Coinbase. So many exchanges. So MANY coins lost forever causing a shortage. Add in the halvening as well. Prices 🗼

    @BitstampSupport @Bitstamp It won’t scroll down any further, it just zooms-+ the chart if I try

  • crypTruth Tex S Hodlem (@crypTruth) reported

    @rothbardsarmy @Bitstamp I'm sure they'd reset it for you with verification. Regarding the two options, I'm a dev for a site that's currently extending 2FA capabilities. Google Auth is free since it has no third party. Paying a 3rd party to manage Authy would cost us $.09 per login, which adds up. No thx

  • Sergej_Berezin Serge (@Sergej_Berezin) reported

    @CryptoSays Next step in my utopia is for for Binance to issue their Debit Cards, so traders could cash out! Bitstamp had these earlier. 💳

  • Akasost Sink or Swim 🎃 (@Akasost) reported

    @Kramerwhale @JFxhunter @Bitstamp Pow is ultimately flawed and can’t solve the double spend problem. Thats why some of the original BTC cryptographers split off and solved it with consensus. Ripple could shut its doors tomorrow and XRP would continue as it’s decentralised and open source. More so than BTC. Sorry.

  • LiamLightmare Flo S. 💧 (@LiamLightmare) reported

    @PianoXr Same here. But right now liquidity is a problem to consider. I'm using Bitstamp and would have trouble.

  • MikeNardolillo Michael Nardolillo (@MikeNardolillo) reported

    @Mangyek0 @XRPnoob1 @BankXRP It doesn’t, but bitstamp is heavily intertwined with ripple and the xrp ledger(they literally have business on the ledger they issue assets). The Swiss bank isn’t interested in them for their name.... :)

  • MikeNardolillo Michael Nardolillo (@MikeNardolillo) reported

    @Mangyek0 @XRPnoob1 @BankXRP The XRP Ledger is a decentralized exchange. Gateways issue assets on the XRP Ledger. For example I can trad xrp for USD right on the XRP Ledger. Bitstamp facilitates this by being a gateway that issued usd on the ledger.

  • MikeNardolillo Michael Nardolillo (@MikeNardolillo) reported

    @Mangyek0 @XRPnoob1 @BankXRP They are also the first ripple gateway and still are (past several years). They issue assets, like bitstamp-usd on the XRP Ledger.

  • Davidgang112 David bildea (@Davidgang112) reported

    @BTCTN now bitstamp needs to fix the complexity of the KYC procedure. normally it takes 2-3 docs and few days, but at bitstamp verification process might take up to few weeks and 100+ docs...

  • BasicallyX2 BasicallyX (@BasicallyX2) reported

    @BankXRP meh bitstamp should just give up already and shut down trading

    @THLifeIsGood @arjunkkohli I can't stand Bitstamp anymore Too much problems with this platform and the worst thing is that no one answers

  • 604XRP_Malaysia 🇨🇦 604XRP_Malaysia 🇲🇾 (@604XRP_Malaysia) reported

    @ThinkingCrypto1 Ask them if their change in USD banks is completed or not. Back in Nov I tried to send fiat to my USD bank and it took 1.5 months. If this isn't resolved it could be a huge issue for customers and bitstamp when it comes time to cash out.

  • pr0t3usx Proteus (@pr0t3usx) reported

    @frank_fx1 @Bitstamp I bought Ripple in 2014 lol, and sold the garbage once I realized what it was... I missed no boat there. The problem is the people supporting XRP don't even understand what "decentralized" actually means. You guys are clueless. Keep feeding my short positions though, I love it.

  • JesusXRP XJesus (@JesusXRP) reported

    @XRPcryptowolf @ArielCendana @Bitstamp They are also already partner with @Swissquote which is the online swiss bank no1 and they provide crypto purchase using bitstamp. The only problem is that they keep it for you you can't withdraw your assets but they will enable this function this year they announced.

  • TmillerXrp XRP T Miller (@TmillerXrp) reported

    @MichelleSchlen6 @auditmeplease @BankXRP @UpholdInc You can still wire funds and the costs are lower that way... debit cards, yes... I don't know about your individual bank because they have to allow the international transaction to london. I was having issues at my bank and i had to go in approve "bitstamp london" transactions

  • TmillerXrp XRP T Miller (@TmillerXrp) reported

    @auditmeplease @BankXRP @UpholdInc I use bitstamp and i use my debit card and buy them instantly... never had any issues, other than from my own bank, which were resolved.

  • XRPisVelocity 💧 Todd 💧🌊🌊 (@XRPisVelocity) reported

    @digitalassetbuy @Ripple I've been planning but so far no good. I have bitstamp, coinbase,bittrex, kraken and uphold accounts. @Bitstamp no limits but hearing issues about them releasing the fiat after cashing out. @krakenfx u need a large net worth for OTC. Same for coinbase. I'm not rich so no luck OTC

  • OptiToken OptiToken (@OptiToken) reported

    Bitcoin levels of relevance! Using @Bitstamp keep eye on $3355 to short side & the coupled 20 & 50 day MAs, with upper at $3690. NOTE on its current path, 20MA would cross under the 50day in 2-4 days & if it doesn’t bounce off than it could be catalyst for a new bearish leg down.

  • VaultMex VaultMex (@VaultMex) reported

    @Bitstamp @132Tur132 Mhhhh...no. That's just a waste of storage resources. 32MB are easily fillable with spam txs. Increasing the block size isn't solving any issue, i'ts just a (weak) turnaround. P.S. many shitcoins already had enormous block size...

  • dachosachi CryptoRegit (@dachosachi) reported

    @Bitstamp 2/2 The energy needed is not really a problem since every electricity plant in the world produces more electricity than is actually used. So they would just need to redirect that excess to a mining pool, which would be of almost no cost.

  • CryptoPressNews Crypto Press (@CryptoPressNews) reported

    Bitstamp "thecryptophilia It depends how deep you want to go. The further down the chain a block is, the longer it takes to change its contents, because you would have to re-mine all the subsequent blocks. How much time this takes depends on your hashpower."

  • pablitoxrp pablitoxrp (@pablitoxrp) reported

    @IvoGrlica @Bitstamp I wanted to change my email at Bitstamp a few weeks ago too. No issues. Only needed a selfie with handwritten request. Once that was done, went through in days. Sorry to hear yours is taking so long. Can’t blame Bitstamp for being careful.

  • csuwildcat Daniel Ƀ (@csuwildcat) reported

    @galgitron @Bitstamp No, you droning on about broken arguments like Moore's Law, game theoretically defiant black swans, and unobtainium, is a waste of my time. Just skip to the part where you tell me about XRP (the substandard) and the wondrous alternatives you prefer.

  • DSBlake Demetreus S. Blake (@DSBlake) reported

    @Christi92883512 @Crunchify For beginners it is important to know a few facts about Bitstamp, first this exchange fraud which does not just fall into the center of scandals, and secondly they have a very slow withdrawals

  • DSBlake Demetreus S. Blake (@DSBlake) reported

    @ico_friends 1. Very slow withdrawals. 2. Disclosure of users ' personal data without their consent. These two reasons enough that would not choose bitstamp

  • XRPTrump Dr. T ⚡️ (@XRPTrump) reported

    @BoNoremac @p3_ris @HammerToe @galgitron @XRP0WER @moneywraith @didduediligence @JoelKatz @xrpunited I know of 4 exchanges not 5: Bitso, CoinsPh, Bitstamp, Bittrex. If Bittrex goes down, I'd imagine xRapid could still work if customer had accounts in Bitstamp too and vice versa. Not sure what would happen if Coinsph or Bitso go down. I don't know about storage scheme either 2/

  • JonnyMoeTrades Jonny Moe (@JonnyMoeTrades) reported

    Where I have the biggest issue with this is where I see people suggest that price action on Bitmex has more value than other exchanges because it has more volume. In reality, $XBT is forced to mimic the $BTC price of Coinbase, Bitstamp, and (sometimes) Kraken.

  • siumanhon Herbert (@siumanhon) reported

    @SupportBitstamp @Bitstamp @Bitstamp your complain officer was putting T&C to state Bitstamp doesn’t guarantee any errors. Giving me virtual” coupon with condition while I suffer real money loss for from your hiccup is effectively me paying for your errors. Good customer strategy! 👍🏻

    @OppongBs @MustStopMurad @renato_shira I agree $1200 is improbable although not impossible. Anything below $2377 is more than a 88.6 fib retracement from our previous bottom to our ATH on Bitstamp. $2500 is also my target for that large bearish pennant we broke down from so quite possible we bottom in the low $2ks..

  • Alexintosh Alexintosh.dexname.eth ⟠ Dexlab (@Alexintosh) reported

    @g_dip @Mariandipietra @mikedemarais @pedrouid @MakerDAO @sendwyre @Bitstamp @nanexcool No problem. I believe the idea of synthetic assets backed by DAI it's very interesting but I couldn't figure it out how that part might work. If you get new info please ping me.

    @wheredidjonahgo @Bitstamp Stealing someone's unsecured private keys is a personal issue. The infrastructure getting exploited with a 51% attack means the network hashrate isn't high enough.

  • informxxx1 OneCryptoPunch (@informxxx1) reported

    @Bitstamp Bringing BTC down is quite simple. Hire as free programmer for Bitcoin Core. Do a lot of good things for Bitcoin Code but one - small - thing for you. Somewhere in Code. Let Code become Version. Version become standard. Then beginn to exploit.

  • fazzyfocus Fazzyfocus (@fazzyfocus) reported

    @Bitstamp not if you already had the equipment. @AntPoolofficial is the largest mining pool at 16%. Controlled by @BITMAINtech meaning @JihanWu could in theory collude with the other top pools and bring down BTC. Equipment cost doesn't matter if you MAKE the equipment. misleading tweet.

  • XrpCenter XRP Research Center (@XrpCenter) reported

    @StopAndDecrypt @galgitron @Simoncaldera1 @BuenoPaNada @Bitstamp Irrelevant for this thread. Going back to the original topic. China can easily shut down a substantial part of Bitcoin mining power just by ordering a couple of electric companies to do so. That's the problem when the security of a crytpo relies in a non-diversified network.
