  • 100XCrypto1 Castro_ xbt (@100XCrypto1) reported

    Everything btc goes up, I regret ever using @Bitstamp. Such a terrible exchange.

  • Eric34971827 Eric (@Eric34971827) reported

    @Marian_XRP_hodl @Jerryvhall1 @digitalassetbuy @jungleincxrp @BakkupBradley I remember screaming at my computer as I was waiting for BTC to transfer to Bitstamp so I could buy XRP. Slow is death in this space...

  • 100XCrypto1 Castro_ xbt (@100XCrypto1) reported

    Never using @Bitstamp @BitstampSupport again. Its utterly terrible.

  • Lars33113363 Freedom Rise (@Lars33113363) reported

    @bgarlinghouse I Like bitstamp but there isbnot accounts, there push the price down on xrp. The accounts are really easy to spot and as low aa 12 xrp keeps and push the price down, bitstamp know about this refuse to ban the accounts. Stop bitstamp to trade xrp if they dont ban

  • rop29233 Miguel Martins (@rop29233) reported

    I never had a problem with bank transfers to bitstamp, today my bank #santander couldn't explain why I can't transfer euros to bitstamp !!! so I won't be able to buy $XRP at today's low price 🤬

  • Boro_ebooks Boro_ebooks (@Boro_ebooks) reported

    Watched aziz netflix thing few days during weak hands/bitstamp glitch so how i'm supposed to be as cheap as a punching bag after a bad guy.

  • 13f03x Kitsune (@13f03x) reported

    Not everybody knows how to make more $btc during down trend. 1. Hedge into fiat (aka sell #bitcoin for euros or usd). This can be done by using @Bitstamp or similar services. When #btc returns to up trend, buy again. 2. (advanced) Go short on Bitmex and pray to #crypto gods.

  • cryptoxrptime Crypto Wick (@cryptoxrptime) reported

    @LTHABIB @coinbase No. That’s the problem. I purchased XRP and I want to send it to Bitstamp but they won’t let me until five days passes

  • cyphernormie gramps 🤡🤡🤡 (@cyphernormie) reported

    @Bitstamp It does not say "action required" it says "pending" FIX THAT AND I WILL RECONSIDER

  • BorisFullframe ฿oris Vereš ⚡️ (@BorisFullframe) reported

    @CryptoHornHairs Solid take. But! The 4H wasnt taken out on Bitstamp which is the largest exchange by volume. The buying pressure has been low the past few days. It’s possible we have one more leg down. I’d suggest waiting for the daily close.

  • DisCryptoYardie ThisCryptoYardie (@DisCryptoYardie) reported

    Its been over 2 months & @Bitstamp has stop there debit card payment system. W/O any notice they shut it down & no expected day when it will work. Im just watching the markets w/ no option 2 buy XRP or BTC & all they say is "it will be up asap" & thats all I heard for 2 months😡

  • Primoz82 Primož (@Primoz82) reported

    Interesting fact from @Bitstamp 🤓 When someone writes down that $BTC miners are now performing more than 9 times as many calculations per second as there are grains of sand on Earth, it puts things into whole new perspective😱🤔 #bitcoin #bitcoinmining #Crypto #Bitstamp #facts

  • j3todaro Joseph Todaro (@j3todaro) reported

    Tezos "real 10" exchange support @krakenfx ✅ @bitfinex ✅ @CoinbasePro ✅ @Gemini ❌ @binance ❌ @BittrexExchange ❌ @Poloniex ❌ @bitFlyer ❌ @Bitstamp ❌ @itBit ❌ 3 down 7 to go People are now realizing that $XTZ is a strong competitor among the smart contract platforms

  • CoinbitIO butcoin (@CoinbitIO) reported

    @Davorin00750292 @BitstampSupport @Bitstamp I do not trust anyone not updating their customers in crypto. Websites/companies like them lost/stole client money more than once, it always starts with this small problems they are not able to communicate properly.

  • CoinbitIO butcoin (@CoinbitIO) reported

    @bitstamp seems to have problems with their bank/creditcard processor - usually a company with that experience should know how to handle/communicate this. They didn't and now lost a loyal customer.

  • Blockchainwatc0 Blockchain Watch (@Blockchainwatc0) reported

    as far as I can tell, a mini-whale has been wreaking some havoc on $BTC/USD in Bitstamp as they are trying to sell off 400 BTC at $11,800, pushing the price down. Things have calmed down around $11,720, but it might get a bit awry when it tries to reach $11,800 again

  • robzon Robert (@robzon) reported

    @BitstampSupport @Bitstamp I'm having issues connecting to it: $ lncli connect <pubkey>@ [lncli] rpc error: code = Unknown desc = dial tcp connect: connection refused Tried from a different network and same thing!.

  • TheCryptHawk CryptHawk 🦅 CryptoHive 🐝 XRPNest 🥚 (@TheCryptHawk) reported

    @Ahmadalsayed191 Might have 2 news out for sure and probably a third. Bitstamp trend line broken this hurts

  • meekers999 mydogisahusky (@meekers999) reported

    @theonevortex @Bitstamp Better fix it then!

  • MikeNardolillo Michael Nardolillo (@MikeNardolillo) reported

    @ShortTheFOMO @xrpshadow @XrpMr @JoelKatz 2/2 like bitstamp. They operate a gateway (issue assets on the xrp ledger to trade on the ledgers decentralized exchange), and they have thier own centralized exchange.

  • bradmillscan Brad Mills [🔑] (@bradmillscan) reported

    @oliver_90210 @Bitstamp @blockchain @Ledger Eek, Blockchain is terrible and ledger is the worst hardware wallet 😁

  • MikeNardolillo Michael Nardolillo (@MikeNardolillo) reported

    @XrpMr @xrpshadow @JoelKatz Not a glitch someone is skewing trades in bitstamp usd/xrp markets in the xrp ledger. Buying .000001 xrp for .30. Price is a weighted average of that market and they are executing a lot of trades

  • xrpshadow 👁 (@xrpshadow) reported

    @XrpMr @JoelKatz Probably just a glitch. Bitstamp price feed on TradingView showing $0.31610 currently.

  • MikeNardolillo Michael Nardolillo (@MikeNardolillo) reported

    @naylor_vail @safnav @haydentiff @RSantosucci @ClemondNFlinch @djchill76 @timdicksonhale @JoelKatz @yoshitaka_kitao @Hodor @kieranmlkelly @Cotswold_Gent @Jay_SPQR @AndySpqr @Ripple its an error someone is executing small trades at an inflated price either by mistake or an attempt to effect price on the xrp/usd bitstamp market( on ledger only)

  • MikeNardolillo Michael Nardolillo (@MikeNardolillo) reported

    @mekpride @haydentiff @AJ58O @RSantosucci @ClemondNFlinch @djchill76 @timdicksonhale @JoelKatz @yoshitaka_kitao @Hodor @kieranmlkelly @Cotswold_Gent @Jay_SPQR @AndySpqr @Ripple @JedMcCaleb its got be an error as that price is generated from the last 50 bitstamp trades and that is not the bitstamp price.

  • Codie77924463 Codie (@Codie77924463) reported

    @gordongekko369 Where can I buy more xrp now , my Bitstamp account card payments are down and have been for a week!

  • Crypto_Kushman XRP Therapist (@Crypto_Kushman) reported

    @StrictlyCryptoh coinbase or bitstamp probably. Have had zero problems with either of em after years

  • grace_za Time to go WitSec (@grace_za) reported

    @XrpYoda @JoelKatz @nbougalis @bgarlinghouse The only fiat that shows up in the ledger charts are fiat IOUs issued by gateways. No one issues a JPY IOU at this point. SBIVC trades actual JPY against XRP, you can't send that JPY to your XRP wallet like you can with something like Bitstamp USD (which then becomes an USD IOU).

  • krungthepkaki Kaiser Söze (@krungthepkaki) reported

    @hitbtc @MrHodl @BashCo_ @Bitstamp I know that your withdrawal fees are flat; the problem is that they are too high and there is no justification for them. Many exchanges have no withdrawal fees, because when they group several payments in one transaction, the blockchain fees per user are negligible.

  • bhoraticle Ziyaad Bhorat (@bhoraticle) reported

    Hello @Bitstamp “When setting up your two-factor authentication on your mobile phone you must note and safely store the provided 16 Authentication Key. With that key you can install authenticator to other devices if yours breaks down or gets lost

  • kristapsk Kristaps Kaupe (@kristapsk) reported

    @BashCo_ @nejc_kodric @hodlonaut @Bitstamp IIRC Bitstamp batches transactions. Agree that 0.0005 BTC is too big. If it really goes to mining fees, they will be overpaying most of the time. If speed really is the issue, they could have fast / slow option at BTC withdrawal, so users could choose.

  • ManuelHSitton Manuel Sitton ® (@ManuelHSitton) reported

    @Bitstamp Fix credit card payments!!!

  • costel_manaila Costel Manaila (@costel_manaila) reported

    @miaroyy @Bitstamp @barginex Plz fix pay with credit card ... i bought same xrp yesterday on Binance with Simplex(this services sux) i need to stay 48h to arive on account :))))

  • Retire_Young_1 Gimme Crypto (@Retire_Young_1) reported

    @XRPL_Monitor Destination wallet was created today. Diving several wallets down, the first exchange name I see is Bitstamp

  • DimitarDinev7 Dimitar Dinev (@DimitarDinev7) reported

    @zhusu Sorry but that's a little too much. Neither bitstamp or any of the others is responsible to fix problem with bitmex manipulation. It's ****** bitmex which needs to change the index they use "oh wait, they prolly don't want to" end.

  • george37876066 George (@george37876066) reported

    @BitstampSupport @Dutch19681 @Bitstamp Something else is definitely going on with the CC purchases. You cannot convince us that this is simply a maintenance issue! Way too long

  • GlobalLife365 CryptoAddict [300k Dec2020] (@GlobalLife365) reported

    @zhusu @IamNomad The problem are bots that arb between exchanges. So you can dump 1000 BTC on a low liquidity exchange and affect the whole market. I could care less if Bitstamp falls $3000 if other spot exchanges and derivatives exchanges hold price. There is no easy solution for this.

  • buckcaneer Buck Caneer (@buckcaneer) reported

    @DumitruAlo @Bitstamp This feature is still not back and is missed by teh people. Please fix ASAP.

  • XrpChris XRP 1000 🐜 (@XrpChris) reported

    @DeniLazeski @Bitstamp That sucks hopefully they fix it

  • ManuelHSitton Manuel Sitton ® (@ManuelHSitton) reported

    @Bitstamp Fix credit card payments!!!

  • mariusfourie9 marius fourie (@mariusfourie9) reported

    @BitstampSupport @Bitstamp the problem is a 2 - 4 day delay = massive difference in intended purchase price please resolve asap

  • CLeewai carl leewai (@CLeewai) reported

    @Bitstamp your credit card purchases still not working. I find it hard to believe u are 1. Denying yourselves profits and 2. Allowing @binance to lead the way....... unbelievable!!

  • trispretty Tristan (@trispretty) reported

    @digitalassetbuy @wirexapp I've had really bad customer service experience with wirex. Come on @Bitstamp .. fix your debit card purchase page!!

  • XrpCenter XRP Research Center (@XrpCenter) reported

    @antoniobrasse @PtimeXr @BlockQuake @Bitso @BitrueOfficial @ChangeNOW_io 1/n It's a bit different. The XRP Ledger allows everyone to issues IOUs and trade them in the built-in DEX against XRP or other IOUs. IOU issuers are called Gateways. Bitstamp has issued a USD backed IOU and hence become a USD Gateway. xRapid is a different animal...

  • AgentRisk7 The Agent (@AgentRisk7) reported

    @McNano11 @Bitstamp Prone to user error as well.

  • McNano11 McNano (@McNano11) reported

    @Bitstamp It was a brief history for sure but once they discovered $nano they realized that all the hard work was for naught because in the end the lighting network can not function to its best ability due to a slow, broken, expensive, Chinese first layer.

  • WietseWind Wietse Wind { 𝚡𝚛𝚙𝚕𝙳𝚎𝚟: 𝚝𝚛𝚞𝚎 } (@WietseWind) reported

    @pops_lyfe @Bitstamp (2/2) Meanwhile we're trying/working on getting a license to issue real bank accounts bridged to the XRPL to make that part even more user friendly and efficient.

  • crypto_moses CryptoMoses (@crypto_moses) reported

    A close around here 10,600 bitstamp is a fake out candle in my opinion. Wouldn’t be surprised if it converts to slow rise, shop and then the rug is pulled for more down. Want to see a close above the 9 day MA.

  • DisCryptoYardie ThisCryptoYardie (@DisCryptoYardie) reported

    @BuyDigiByte @TheBitfi I use bitstamp to buy BTC directly through my debit card. It is a UK based company so I don't think you will have a problem buying. Then I take BTC to bitmart for APL, or you can wait for the Apollo DEX.

  • Del_Ryp Del Rypto (@Del_Ryp) reported

    @dmcdcrypto @AltcoinSara @Bitstamp but their debit/credit deposits are down and have been for two weeks

  • wali99131196 wali (@wali99131196) reported

    Some people bring back btc in each single hour 9300-8000-7000-5600 WTH just little price went down and they put there ******* cheap analysis with fake diagram they think the giant exchange binance bitrex bitmap bitstamp Coinbase and other they are stupid they think they.#btc $btc

    🚨🚨🚨 Alert 🚨🚨🚨 Please be aware of scammers pretending to be bitstamp technical team asking you to message them on yahoo to resolve your issue. DO NOT MESSAGE THEM. Please spread the word. @Bitstamp @BitstampSupport @digitalassetbuy @ThinkingCrypto1 @CKJCryptonews

  • thebogdanoff bogdanoff (@thebogdanoff) reported

    @CarpeNoctom @Bitstamp @coinbase @kraken If they fix it, insurance fund won't grow!

  • CarpeNoctom Josh Olszewicz (@CarpeNoctom) reported

    this blatant manipulation occurs on the spot markets b/c the indices of these derivatives exchanges is basically weighted 50:50 w/@Bitstamp & @coinbase when @kraken goes down

  • EthereumJesus Ethereum Jesus ⟠ 🙌🏻 (@EthereumJesus) reported

    @iamDCinvestor Liquidity isn’t going to increase with this kind of price manipulation scaring away new investors. It might take years. It kind of makes sense why Coinbase shuts down after every large scale dump. They don’t want to crash the market like Bitstamp so frequently does.

  • TraderRoode TraderRoode (@TraderRoode) reported

    Bought back a percentage. Reasons: - Sloppy and obvious FUD on the message board (you know the one) - bitstamp dump looks like an attempt to drive price down - $ETH futures could be announced any day now

  • r0bertz r0bertz (@r0bertz) reported

    Trying zenbot. Not working for bitstamp, at least not for 'zenbot buy'. I will send a PR.

  • CredibleCrypto Credible Crypto (@CredibleCrypto) reported

    @BabyWhale777 Yes I am aware, but disregarded that as it only occurred on bitstamp. Liquidity issue.

  • calvincs Calvincs (@calvincs) reported

    @haydentiff @Crypto__Daz @Bitstamp @krakenfx @bitbank_inc LinkedIn :-p. But honestly, having had setup a validator and rippled server in the past/current, it's not difficult and any IT admin could do it. No excuses really. I could see how individuals could have issues ($$/lack admin knowledge), but not exchanges...

  • haydentiff Tiffany Hayden (@haydentiff) reported

    @NicklausScheetz @Bitstamp @krakenfx @bitbank_inc This is the problem with not having validators on the network with customers depending on them. I don’t think we’d do well if Ripple disabled their validators. Other validators don’t operate with a sense of urgency because they don’t have reason to. There is nothing to lose.
