Protect your bitcoins using 2nd factor authentication with a Yubikey, which you can buy using bitcoins at 60% off for today only!!

I had bought a bunch of these at the regular price of $25 + $5 shipping and love it! I use it as 2FA for my blockchain.info account, Lastpass password manager account, and for Bitstamp. It can also be configured to work with any site that uses Google Authenticator such as Mt Gox, CampBX, Gmail (but limited to 1 only). It is tiny, and I put it with my key chain so it's always with me.
Now you can get one for only $14.99 with free shipping in the US from Massdrop. And guess what? THEY ACCEPT BITCOINS!

EDIT: Removed my referral link. If you don't mind using it, PM me!
EDIT 2: Whoops it's technically 40% off, not 60%. But with free shipping, turns out to be 50% off!
EDIT 3: Sale is over.

2FA

How should you set up two factor authentication securely?
Now that I have an amount of BTC that I’d be upset to lose, I’m locking down all my accounts. Banking, email, exchanges, etc, making sure all accounts have a secure password and 2FA.
But what I’m wondering is how to make sure your 2FA is doing it’s job in protecting you. Right now my 2FA is all through my phone number and I get texted a code. Is that enough? Should I be using a second device for my 2FA or a secret email address?
My concern is, if someone has access to my phone, then the 2FA is basically rendered useless. Is 2FA only a protection against hacking your accounts from the hackers computer?
I have a password on my phone, and passwords on my financial apps, I just want to make sure I’m doing all that I can.

CryptoSmarts 4: The Best Free Password Managers

CryptoSmarts 4: The Best Free Password Managers
MintDice is proud to bring you the fourth part of the CryptoSmarts series, a 100% unbiased/non-affiliate paid article set that will focus on relatively simple ways you can boost your privacy, take power away from overbearing governments and corporations while also doing relative good for society all at the same time with minimal effort. Rest assured that anything suggested here is solely for your own benefit.
In this article, we'll take a deep dive into password managers, which applications to go for, how to optimize your password managers and which ones to avoid. It's of increasing importance for all users to adopt a password manager because commonly used passwords and repeated use of log-in + password combinations are the two weakest points in any normal individual's security online. Meanwhile, memorizing dozens of unique and complex passwords is beyond the scope of what most people can do, especially long term. Thus password managers have been created as a way to store multiple passwords into a single file that can help ensure your security and privacy online.
For a little encouragement, we'll share the now extremely famous dialogue between Edward Snowden and John Oliver talking about passwords. As should be painfully obvious by now, password managers are one of the best solutions to this entire dilemma.

https://preview.redd.it/ribbtjwz1it51.png?width=1000&format=png&auto=webp&s=3c3a9a31bdb8c4f9ec83bea98638fec5dd78b38f

PASSWORD MANAGER BASICS

We should first note that not all password managers are created the same as we've noted with software across all of our other articles. By and large, we'll be looking for similar characteristics in our password managers as we would our other software which includes open sourced software protocols and best software security practices. And when it comes to Bitcoin, cryptocurrency and your entire life's work on the internet, there is a lot at stake here. I'd argue that it is more important for password managers than for any other application to make sure to get this one correct since it will have your entire livelihood on the line.
The very amazing thing with demanding open sourced software for your password manager is that it by definition will also be free at the most basic level. This is because if it weren't, all it would take would be someone to fork over a program to make it free. So you are in a sense getting the best of both worlds here; a free software that is also of the highest quality. Meanwhile, ironically, many of the more commonly known password managers like Dashlane or Lastpass use closed source software and often charge fees to use their service. Funnily enough, Lastpass, the password manager itself, was actually formerly hacked in the past. One could argue this at least in part had to do with it's closed source software since having open sourced software at least in part makes software more secure. In short, do not used these closed source services that are frequently advertised for on the web as they are detrimental to you in more ways than one.

RECOMMENDED BEST PASSWORD MANAGERS

Bitwarden is our first recommendation. Bitwarden is truly one of the all time greats by approaching password management on the individual, team and even enterprise level to create a one size fits all solution. Bitwarden is compatible on virtually all devices out there from all desktops to mobile devices and so forth. Additionally, while they offer a centralized cloud service for free, Bitwarden is also set up to allow you to run your own private server to keep your own key base entirely under your own control, fully encrypted.

https://preview.redd.it/zmlkf5d12it51.jpg?width=770&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=02998b777d05ab00557a97c616a4b0d505b324aa
Next up we have KeePassXC which is a fork of one of the longest standing password managers in existence, formerly known as KeePass that halted a lot of it's ongoing development some time ago. KeePassXC was created as a locally held password manager application that could work across platforms. Unlike Bitwarden where your key file is held in cloud storage, KeePassXC is simply a program client and a local file that you must maintain and backup yourself. This has some pros and cons. The good news is that you have full control of everything related to KeePassXC as the program under most situations will not be talking to any online server which could expose private or sensitive information. The bad news is that if you ever were to lose control of your key file, you are completely out of luck. For this reason, it's imperative to back up your encrypted key file in multiple locations to protect against what would be catastrophic loss. You can do this with USB drives, e-mail accounts, cloud storage, safe deposit boxes or a whole host of other creative solutions that you might come up with.
The final recommended option is LessPass. LessPass is very interesting technology because it is a no-knowledge password manager. By inputting a few pieces of information which could be a master password in conjunction with an e-mail address or user name, a password is automatically attached to any URL address. It will simply cross all of these pieces of information via PBKDF2 and SHA-256 to produce random yet consistent outputs for any of your web browsing. The advantage of this program is that it is extremely light weight, and so long as you can remember your e-mail address, account name and master password, you can now gain full access to everything around the internet without the need of any files. The downside is some level of control over password flexibility since the passwords are automatically generated for you.
In summation of these three options, BitWarden is the best overall password manager for most people's use cases. Meanwhile, LessPass is probably best suited for the most casual user who contains fewer accounts across the internet and wants something extremely simple and easy to use. Lastly, KeePassXC, will be the ultimate in privacy password manager technology and is best suited for those that are prepared to take the extra steps to ensure their key file is kept up to date as the months and years tick by.

BEST PRACTICES WITH YOUR NEW PASSWORD MANAGER

Once you have chosen a password manager from the above list, it will be important to change all of your account passwords one by one to incorporate it into your new system. This will help you get away from your commonly used log-in and password combinations and over to your new, more secure and robust set up. With your new set up, if you have a key file to back up, you must now start getting in the habit of doing so, especially after major or important changes to your password manager. Or if you wish to use BItWarden with a private cloud server, make sure that that is fully set up and running.
Generally speaking, when choosing password length from your password manager for standard and robust security, 25 random characters, letters (and symbols if you wish, but they aren't necessary), is mostly considered to be uncrackable. This is because while every password is in theory beatable, it takes dramatically more computational energy over time to figure out what your password is, and at some point, it becomes unreasonable. That said, NSA grade security often holds itself up to 50 random characters which is considered to be unbreakable even on a government wide scale.
On that same token, you'll have to use a master password for your password manager. Given that you only need to know one password, it will now be extremely important to make this a very good password. Because a password that you need to remember most likely won't (or perhaps shouldn't) be completely random so that it's easy to remember, it should, at the very least, be long. I would suggest making sure that you come up with a master password that is at least 40 characters long or 125 bits of information. To check out how many bits of entropy your master password is, you can type it into the password field of KeePassXC and it will tell you roughly how secure your master password is. While 40 characters may seem like a lot, do keep in mind that this is now the only gateway between yourself and all of your access keys to all of your accounts held on this account.

Bits of Entropy Example on KeePassXC
Finally, it is worth investing in a YubiKey or similar 2-FA device if you can get one. This can apply to BitWarden and KeePassXC. With the normal password managers, a hacker will need access to not only your password but also your key file in order to have free reign over all of your accounts. However, a sophisticated hacker that has full access to your device with a keylogger could ultimately, in theory, compromise your full set up, and this would be disastrous for you. Fortunately, this can be resolved by buying and activating a Yubikey or other such device. The Yubikey example requires that a Yubikey, with a private key that you set up for your password manager, is present to access your database. Therefore, even if a hacker were to obtain your key file and your master password, they still won't be able gain access to your account. As a precaution, however, if you lose access to your Yubikey and/or private key, you too, will be locked out. Therefore, it is important to keep your Yubikey backed up and to keep extra copies available.

IN CONCLUSION

Owning Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies comes with a lot of responsibility if you want to minimize risk. As does maintaining a strong hack-resistant presence online. One of the best defenses you can make is by implementing a password manager. Similar to the previous CryptoSmarts articles that we have written prior, it will take some small amount of set up work to get fully acclimated to your new system, but you'll thank yourself down the road that you have done this. And the sooner you start, the better, as things will only continue to get more complex, with more risk factors at play as the internet plays an ever increasing role in all of our day to day lives.
Finally, while the article is current as of the writing of the article, it will undoubtedly lose merit over time. Be sure to check if everything in this article is up to date or that any password manager that you select from this article continues development or continues to abide by the proper best practice principles.

Comparing exchanges: Coinbase Pro, Cash.App, Kraken, Gemini Active Trader

I've been looking at difference exchanges for buying and withdrawing. My main concerns are security (must have TOTP as used on Google Authenticator or the like), good trading fees, and good deposit/withdrawal fees, maybe a mobile app but not strictly necessary. Time preference for deposits and withdrawals is not huge but faster the better. Also, i'm U.S. based.
Coinbase Pro:
Cash.App:
Kraken:
Gemini Active Trader:
So thoughts? Corrections? Clarifications?
My preference is:
  1. Gemini Active Trader (if I become comfortable with Authy which is not likely, and it means no app, only web)
  2. Kraken (if they'd have ACH deposits)
  3. Coinbase Pro (not as well loved but best combination of security features and fees)
  4. Cash App (well loved but more expensive and not yet known about their 2FA status, can't find any info anywhere on it)
Since Gemini Active Trader and Kraken are currently out of the running because of those issues stated, Coinbase Pro seems to be the best case at the moment. Maybe with Cash app as a supplement for quick buys and withdrawals.
I also looked at Swan and it's ok, more info in the comments, but biggest thing is it doesn't support modern bt1 addresses.

Updated: Added ACH options

Update2: Found this great resource on what kind of 2FA various exchanges use:
https://twofactorauth.org/#cryptocurrencies

Update3: Added support response from Gemini support regarding 2FA and ActiveTrader on mobile

Coinbase Account Hacked

So, yep, it happened to me. Sucks, but it happened. I lost a few thousand in different crypto on Coinbase. It was definitely a sim swap attack. I called my phone carrier and the lady was stupid enough to tell me the truth. So I will be suing my phone carrier.
So here's how this went down. First off, the scammer (not hacker), gathered information about me. My full name, email, phone number, birthday, and God knows what else. Then he somehow found out that I had a coinbase account. With all his information in place, he called the phone carrier and told them he was an store employee and that he needed a phone number (my phone number) swapped to a differed sim card. The sim swap happened and he had control of my phone for about 30 minutes. The person he talked to at the phone carrier was an insider and aided him. Phone carrier is investigating and that person will be fired. They have his employee ID number and they were puzzled why he did "maintenance" on my phone for 30 minutes... During that time, the scammer (not hacker), gained access to my email and proceeded to reset my Coinbase account password and gain access. He then converted all my crypto to bitcoin and sent it to an address. It has moved a few times but it's still there a few addresses later. I alerted Coinbase and they said your email security is your responsibility and that they WOULD NOT reimburse me. Note to self, if your Coinbase account gets compromised through a sim swap attack, you're on your own. Even though Coinbase enables SMS 2FA by default, you're on your own. Period. Money gone, go bye bye, end of story. I sent them an email saying I didn't enable SMS 2FA and they didn't care. On that note, if you have SMS 2FA enabled on your Coinbase account, it's only a matter of time until your account is compromised through a sim swap attack and all your crypto is GONE. You're on the list, the scammers just haven't gotten to you yet.
What did I learn from all this? First off, Coinbase WILL NOT GIVE YOU YOUR MONEY BACK. They say they have "insurance" but it's only if the main site gets hacked, not your specific account. Listen, if your crypto gets stolen off Coinbase, it's gone. End of story. Period. They sent me an email stating this. Numerous Coinbase accounts get compromised every day, and Coinbase doesn't give a shit. Even though they are enablers to the scammers by turning on SMS 2FA by default, they don't care. Period.
I also learned, and some of you already know this, to not use the same email everywhere. You need about 3-4 emails. The one you use for bank accounts and crypto? Don't use them anywhere else. Also, don't use SMS 2FA. It's NOT secure. Once a scammer (not hacker) finds out your phone number, all he has to do is call his insider at your phone carrier and get your number swapped to his sim card for a little while.
In a nutshell:
  1. Don't use phone texting SMS 2 Factor Authentication, use Authy or get a physical key, my Yubikey arrives today!
  2. Don't use the same email everywhere. Have a junk email, then a credit card email, then a bank account email. Make them all different.
  3. Get a password manager like KeePass, Kaspersky, or 1Password. If you can remember your password then it's not a good password. BTW, you can have the strongest password in the world, but if you have SMS 2FA enabled the scammer can reset your password by receiving your text while he has control of your phone number. Ditch SMS 2FA!
Please, PLEASE, learn from my mistake. If you think this can't or won't happen to you then you're wrong, and sadly mistaken. Secure your account NOW! TODAY! Just do it.
EDIT: Just for gee whiz info. This crypto was the result of throwing $50 to $100 into Coinbase and buying various crypto over the past 5 years. Was going to use it as a hopefully 2nd retirement income when the crypto boom hits. All gone. All gone in 15 minutes. GET RID OF SMS 2FA FOLKS!!!

Looking back 18 months.

I was going through old emails today and came across this one I sent out to family on January 4, 2018. It was a reflection on the 2017 crypto bull market and where I saw it heading, as well as some general advice on crypto, investment, and being safe about how you handle yourself in cryptoland.
I feel that we are on the cusp of a new bull market right now, so I thought that I would put this out for at least a few people to see *before* the next bull run, not after. While the details have changed, I don't see a thing in this email that I fundamentally wouldn't say again, although I'd also probably insist that people get a Yubikey and use that for all 2FA where it is supported.
Happy reading, and sorry for some of the formatting weirdness -- I cleaned it up pretty well from the original email formatting, but I love lists and indents and Reddit has limitations... :-/
Also, don't laught at my token picks from January 2018! It was a long time ago and (luckliy) I took my own advice about moving a bunch into USD shortly after I sent this. I didn't hit the top, and I came back in too early in the summer of 2018, but I got lucky in many respects.
----------------------------------------------------------------------- Jan-4, 2018
Hey all!
I woke up this morning to ETH at a solid $1000 and decided to put some thoughts together on what I think crypto has done and what I think it will do. *******, if you could share this to your kids I’d appreciate it -- I don’t have e-mail addresses, and it’s a bit unwieldy for FB Messenger… Hopefully they’ll at least find it thought-provoking. If not, they can use it as further evidence that I’m a nutjob. 😉
Some history before I head into the future.
I first mined some BTC in 2011 or 2012 (Can’t remember exactly, but it was around the Christmas holidays when I started because I had time off from work to get it set up and running.) I kept it up through the start of summer in 2012, but stopped because it made my PC run hot and as it was no longer winter, ********** didn’t appreciate the sound of the fans blowing that hot air into the room any more. I’ve always said that the first BTC I mined was at $1, but looking back at it now, that’s not true – It was around $2. Here’s a link to BTC price history.
In the summer of 2013 I got a new PC and moved my programs and files over before scrapping the old one. I hadn’t touched my BTC mining folder for a year then, and I didn’t even think about salvaging those wallet files. They are now gone forever, including the 9-10BTC that were in them. While I can intellectually justify the loss, it was sloppy and underlines a key thing about cryptocurrency that I believe will limit its widespread adoption by the general public until it is addressed and solved: In cryptoland, you are your own bank, and if you lose your password or account number, there is no person or organization that can help you reset it so that you can get access back. Your money is gone forever.
On April 12, 2014 I bought my first BTC through Coinbase. BTC had spiked to $1000 and been in the news, at least in Japan. This made me remember my old wallet and freak out for a couple of months trying to find it and reclaim the coins. I then FOMO’d (Fear Of Missing Out”) and bought $100 worth of BTC. I was actually very lucky in my timing and bought at around $430. Even so, except for a brief 50% swing up almost immediately afterwards that made me check prices 5 times a day, BTC fell below my purchase price by the end of September and I didn’t get back to even until the end of 2015.
In May 2015 I bought my first ETH at around $1. I sent some guy on bitcointalk ~$100 worth of BTC and he sent me 100 ETH – all on trust because the amounts were small and this was a small group of people. BTC was down in the $250 range at that point, so I had lost 30-40% of my initial investment. This was of the $100 invested, so not that much in real terms, but huge in percentages. It also meant that I had to buy another $100 of BTC on Coinbase to send to this guy. A few months after I purchased my ETH, BTC had doubled and ETH had gone down to $0.50, halving the value of my ETH holdings. I was even on the first BTC purchase finally, but was now down 50% on the ETH I had bought.
The good news was that this made me start to look at things more seriously. Where I had skimmed white papers and gotten a superficial understanding of the technology before FOMO’ing, I started to act as an investor, not a speculator. Let me define how I see those two different types of activity:
So what has been my experience as an investor? After sitting out the rest of 2015 because I needed to understand the market better, I bought into ETH quite heavily, with my initial big purchases being in March-April of 2016. Those purchases were in the $11-$14 range. ETH, of course, dropped immediately to under $10, then came back and bounced around my purchase range for a while until December of 2016, when I purchased a lot more at around $8.
I also purchased my first ICO in August of 2016, HEAT. I bought 25ETH worth. Those tokens are now worth about half of their ICO price, so about 12.5ETH or $12500 instead of the $25000 they would be worth if I had just kept ETH. There are some other things with HEAT that mean I’ve done quite a bit better than those numbers would suggest, but the fact is that the single best thing I could have done is to hold ETH and not spend the effort/time/cost of working with HEAT. That holds true for about every top-25 token on the market when compared to ETH. It certainly holds true for the many, many tokens I tried to trade in Q1-Q2 of 2017. In almost every single case I would have done better and slept better had I just held ETH instead of trying to be smarter than Mr. Market.
But, I made money on all of them except one because the crypto market went up more in USD terms than any individual coin went down in ETH or BTC terms. This underlines something that I read somewhere and that I take to heart: A rising market makes everyone seem like a genius. A monkey throwing darts at a list of the top 100 cryptocurrencies last year would have doubled his money. Here’s a chart from September that shows 2017 year-to-date returns for the top 10 cryptocurrencies, and all of them went up a *lot* more between then and December. A monkey throwing darts at this list there would have quintupled his money.
When evaluating performance, then, you have to beat the monkey, and preferably you should try to beat a Wall Street monkey. I couldn’t, so I stopped trying around July 2017. My benchmark was the BLX, a DAA (Digital Asset Array – think fund like a Fidelity fund) created by ICONOMI. I wasn’t even close to beating the BLX returns, so I did several things.
  1. I went from holding about 25 different tokens to holding 10 now. More on that in a bit.
  2. I used those funds to buy ETH and BLX. ETH has done crazy-good since then and BLX has beaten BTC handily, although it hasn’t done as well as ETH.
  3. I used some of those funds to set up an arbitrage operation.
The arbitrage operation is why I kept the 11 tokens that I have now. All but a couple are used in an ETH/token pair for arbitrage, and each one of them except for one special case is part of BLX. Why did I do that? I did that because ICONOMI did a better job of picking long-term holds than I did, and in arbitrage the only speculative thing you must do is pick the pairs to trade. My pairs are (No particular order):
I also hold PLU, PLBT, and ART. These two are multi-year holds for me. I have not purchased BTC once since my initial $200, except for a few cases where BTC was the only way to go to/from an altcoin that didn’t trade against ETH yet. Right now I hold about the same 0.3BTC that I held after my first $100 purchase, so I don’t really count it.
Looking forward to this year, I am positioning myself as follows:
Looking at my notes, I have two other things that I wanted to work into this email that I didn’t get to, so here they are:
  1. Just like with free apps and other software, if you are getting something of value and you didn’t pay anything for it, you need to ask why this is. With apps, the phrase is “If you didn’t pay for the product, you are the product”, and this works for things such as pump groups, tips, and even technical analysis. Here’s how I see it.
    1. People don’t give tips on stocks or crypto that they don’t already own that stock or token. Why would they, since if they convince anyone to buy it, the price only goes up as a result, making it more expensive for them to buy in? Sure, you will have friends and family that may do this, but people in a crypto club, your local cryptocurrency meetup, or online are generally not your friends. They are there to make money, and if they can get you to help them make money, they will do it. Pump groups are the worst of these, and no matter how enticing it may look, stay as far away as possible from these scams. I even go so far as to report them when I see them advertise on FB or Twitter, because they are violating the terms of use.
    2. Technical analysis (TA) is something that has been argued about for longer than I’ve been alive, but I think that it falls into the same boat. In short, TA argues that there are patterns in trading that can be read and acted upon to signal when one must buy or sell. It has been used forever in the stock and foreign exchange markets, and people use it in crypto as well. Let’s break down these assumptions a bit.
i. First, if crypto were like the stock or forex markets we’d all be happy with 5-7% gains per year rather than easily seeing that in a day. For TA to work the same way in crypto as it does in stocks and foreign exchange, the signals would have to be *much* stronger and faster-reacting than they work in the traditional market, but people use them in exactly the same way.
ii. Another area where crypto is very different than the stock and forex markets centers around market efficiency theory. This theory says that markets are efficient and that the price reflects all the available information at any given time. This is why gold in New York is similar in price to gold in London or Shanghai, and why arbitrage margins are easily <0.1% in those markets compared to cryptoland where I can easily get 10x that. Crypto simply has too much speculation and not enough professional traders in it yet to operate as an efficient market. That fundamentally changes the way that the market behaves and should make any TA patterns from traditional markets irrelevant in crypto.
iii. There are services, both free and paid that claim to put out signals based on TA for when one should buy and sell. If you think for even a second that they are not front-running (Placing orders ahead of yours to profit.) you and the other people using the service, you’re naïve.
iv. Likewise, if you don’t think that there are people that have but together computerized systems to get ahead of people doing manual TA, you’re naïve. The guys that I have programming my arbitrage bots have offered to build me a TA bot and set up a service to sell signals once our position is taken. I said no, but I am sure that they will do it themselves or sell that to someone else. Basically they look at TA as a tip machine where when a certain pattern is seen, people act on that “tip”. They use software to see that “tip” faster and take a position on it so that when slower participants come in they either have to sell lower or buy higher than the TA bot did. Remember, if you are getting a tip for free, you’re the product. In TA I see a system when people are all acting on free preset “tips” and getting played by the more sophisticated market participants. Again, you have to beat that Wall Street monkey.
  1. If you still don’t agree that TA is bogus, think about it this way: If TA was real, Wall Street would have figured it out decades ago and we would have TA funds that would be beating the market. We don’t.
  2. If you still don’t agree that TA is bogus and that its real and well, proven, then you must think that all smart traders use them. Now follow that logic forward and think about what would happen if every smart trader pushing big money followed TA. The signals would only last for a split second and would then be overwhelmed by people acting on them, making them impossible to leverage. This is essentially what the efficient market theory postulates for all information, including TA.

Evercoin has released a new hardware wallet based on YubiKey

Evercoin has released a new hardware wallet based on YubiKey

https://preview.redd.it/vsv810azsky31.jpg?width=900&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=9caa2c789eb32aa2be42b2b47eebed18b9067507
Evercoin cryptocurrency exchange has announced the launch of A new evercoin 2 cryptocurrency wallet based on yubikey hardware authentication technology for iPhone and Android smartphones.
"Unlike other hardware wallets like Ledger and Trezor, Evercoin 2 uses YubiKey to provide comprehensive protection on the Internet. It was created in order to bring cryptocurrencies to the masses, " - said the co-founder of Evercoin Miko Matsumura.
Evercoin 2 supports 20 crypto assets, including bitcoin and ether. Users can store their cryptocurrencies and exchange them using the built-in non-custodial exchange, as well as link their Bank account to an Evercoin account and buy crypto assets for Fiat currency.
As noted by the chief financial analyst of CipherTrace John Jefferies, in fact, Evercoin 2 is not a hardware cryptocurrency wallet, as it does not store users ' private keys. It is more of an authentication device, a more secure analogue of mobile wallets.
This is confirmed by the ability to recover the user's private key if it is lost. To do this, the client must log in to the Evercoin application and provide documents confirming his identity, although usually if the private key is lost, access to the assets is lost forever.
"The Evercoin solution works like a hotel room key – you insert it into your phone and the wallet unlocks, and once you pull it out, the wallet locks again. This is a simple principle that everyone understands, " Matsumura said.
Evercoin 2 can also be used to encrypt mail and block access to social media accounts. In the case of other devices that support YubiKey, users will be able to download the Evercoin app and use the device to access the wallet.

I would like to buy some bitcoins in an normal straight forward way (not having to sign up for several sights and payment gateways). Any ideas? Anyone selling?

Newb here. I've checked out the links on the side bar and buying a few coins is a giant pain in the ass. Anyone know of a simple way of purchasing? A simple market?

All about BitMex trading platform

Many crypto traders want to engage in leverage trading for different reasons; mostly to rapidly grow their capital. But nothing good comes easy so most trader abstained due to the high risk involved. Well in this post, I’m going to explain step by step how to trade crypto on BitMex with up to 100x leverage. Additionally for more conservative traders I will provide some telegram channels that gives free and VIP BitMex signal towards the end of this post. See the outline below as guideline as the post duels into BitMex operation. - How to create and fund BitMex account - BitMex overview and alt. coin pair contracts - Trading long and short with and without leverage - How to use stop losses
HOW TO CREATE AND FUND BITMEX ACCOUNT Simply go to https://www.bitmex.com/registeiHcxly. At the top right hand side corner hit register and fill in the required details. There are limitations for traders from the United State but it can be by-passed by selecting a different country of residence with the help the help of a VPN.
To add a two factor authorization for addition security, simply click corner of the dashboard; hit account and security, scroll down to security section and enable Google authenticator or yubikey. For Google authenticator visit Google Play Store on mobile phone and download the app. Open it and click the little plus sign at the top; scan the QR Code and enter the generated code on BitMex. Click submit to finish the process, so anytime you want to log-in enter a new two factor token generated on Google authenticator and log-in.
To fund your BitMex account, click account and send bitcoin to the bitcoin deposit address. An email will be sent to you after it receives the bitcoin. You can also check the balance in the account section
BITMEX OVERVIEW AND ALT COIN PAIR CONTRACTS BitMex dashboard is made up of different section and can be rearranged as traders see fit. This post covers all important sections necessary for trading. It covers order book, Order, recent trades and position/margin section.
At the midway after place order is position subsection. The leverage value is set in this section and depending on the alt coin pair it value ranges from cross to 100x. With the exception of Bitcoin all other pairs has a leverage limit below 50x.
TRADING BUY/LONG AND SELL/SHORT WITH AND WITHOUT LEVERAGE Depending on the speculation made a trader can either Buy/long or sell/short alt. pair, i.e. buy/long if predicted price to move above current price and sell/short if predicted price to move lower than current price. To open or close a position a trader can use the limit or market section. The amount to buy or sell is entered in the space beside the “quantity” in USD. Just below the “quantity” under the limit section is “Limit price” beside which a trader can enter the intended entry price. If a limit price is below the current price, a buy/long order will not be executed until the current price retraces and hit the limit price but, if limit price is set above current price, i.e. deep into the market buy/long order will execute immediately. Opposite scenario applies to the sell/short order.
In the market section only Quantity is required, this mean orders are executed automatically at current best price. Its disadvantage is double fee payment (Maker and taker fee)
LEVERAGE Leveraging simply refers to borrowing. Depending on risk a trader is willing to take leverage can be as high as 100 times the trading capital. For example a trader with $20 can trade with $200 under 10x leverage. In a nutshell, a trader can multiply his trade amount with leverage as he sees fit. But the higher the leverage the higher the risk involved. For simplicity a 10x leverage will be used to explain some parameters. Under the Buy/Long and Sell/Short there is cost, order value and available balance. Cost is the actual amount a trader risk on particular trade; order value is the amount being traded with leverage i.e. order value = cost × leverage and available balance is remaining balance after cost is deducted in original balance.
With leverage being explained it will be unfair to skip its risky aspect. At the point of executing an order with leverage a pop up box to confirm the order will be displayed. On the box are the order details: - Order value: Trade quantity with leverage - Cost: The actual capital of stake - Available balance: Balance remaining without the cost - Estimated liquidation price: If hit the price at which a trader’s position will be liquidated and result in loss of all cost price. So it is very important to look at the liquidation price before executing a particular trade.
Position section becomes very important after confirming an order. It is there the liquidation price unrealized PNL and active orders are monitored. The unrealized PNL shows percentage loss or gain of open positions while realize PNL indicates that of close position.
HOW TO USE STOP LOSSES In the last tab under place order section are stop losses. It consist of four different type - stop limit, stop market, trailing stop and take profit
Now that we’ve covered the essential part of BitMex trading, let’s scrutinize and look at success rate of some BitMex trading signal telegram channel. The best BitMex signal telegram channel I’ve come across so far is Bitmex Call t.me/bitmexcall. They roughly give 1 signal per day on their free channel. Their success rate is around 91% i.e. in 22 signal 20 hit their targets while remaining 2 hit stop losses. Other channels are Bitmex Lifestyle t.me/ bitmexlifestyle and Zcrypto trading t.me/zcrypto. Register and start BitMex trading via my affiliate link and enjoy 10% fee discount for the next 6 months. https://www.bitmex.com/registeiHcxly If comfortable you can also donate BTC for an ongoing trading signal app and website project I’m currently developing to 1K4SLVq5QaC7F1VHWzsjp94LucXuRprU1C HAPPY TRADING

Why is there nog Yubikey-based Bitcoin wallet?

For people unfamiliar with Yubico's Yubikey, it's a 2FA method using a hardware (USB/NFC) key. The handy party (in short) is that it generates one-time keys for every login.
This system seems ideal to me to build a bitcoin wallet using the Yubikeys that are already in the hands of so many users. The advantage would be that you don't have to buy new expensive hardware (or software) to use the bitcoin wallet (for current Yubkey users it would basically be free, for others a small investment). The nice part is, even if people step out of using bitcoin, they at least have a very good authentication key left to use as they please.
The basic concept would be to authenticate every transaction with your Yubikey generated key, much like a Ledger wallet or a Green Address does. More even, when you program a totally separate payment system around it, you can even generate bitcoin dresses for ever payment you want to receive.
Sounds an ideal thing to me to but in a Chrome app for example.
Is there anything like this out there already? Would there be interest for such an idea/wallet?

[MTGOX] Tokyo District Civil Court 20th Circuit - Civil Rehabilitation Proceeding translation from Japanese

r/bitcoin, let me recommend you: Yubikey NEO

Hi Bitcoin.
I know this is not strictly Bitcoin related, but since personal security is a Bitcoin thing, I'd like to bring this to your attention.
The Yubikey NEO: https://www.yubico.com/products/yubikey-hardware/yubikey-neo/ is a great device and I highly recommend all of you getting one after using it for two months now.
For $50 you get:
In all cases, your private data are stored on the Yubikey and never leave it, which is a great benefit.
GPG cryptography allows you to keep your public keys on your desktop, servers without worrying about them being stolen and make your backups etc. encrypted automatically without your intervention, while only the holder of your yubikey can decrypt them. It takes time to understand and set up, but comes very handy and greatly improves your overall security. I also recommend following: https://alexcabal.com/creating-the-perfect-gpg-keypai to create more advanced and future-proof setup from the very beginning. Also, make sure to generate your decryption key offline and keep a backup of it, in case your Yubikey gets stolen/damaged (see https://we.riseup.net/debian/using-the-openpgp-card-with-subkeys).
I'll be happy to answer questions and help to people interested in buying, using and setting up the device.
Stay safe!

Yubico need to accept Bitcoin for their Yubikey

Been trying to purchase a yubikey for 2 days now, had to go to the trouble of buying PayPal funds from Bitmit. A company like yubico with interest in security products should really accept Bitcoin as a payment option. And to add even more complication, now PayPal tells me "We are not able to process your payment using your PayPal account at this time."
What a difficult process just to purchase a product to protect my Blockchain.info wallet...
I suggest we all contact Yubico to ask if they would consider adding Bitcoin as a payment option! http://www.yubico.com/support/contact/

PSA dealing with wealth

I just did some research on dealing with wealth yesterday, and here is what I found:
Books talking about a sudden influx of wealth: Living Richly: Seizing the Potential of Inherited Wealth Navigating the Dark Side of Wealth, A life Guide for Inheritors I picked those books up because they seem to deal with personal issues surrounding wealth. Bitcoins aren't exactly inheritance, but the case is similar I guess.
I also asked on /investing on the issue. Aside from some useless advice like "live just like you did before" people recommended the following books: - The Intelligent Investor - Benjamin Graham - The Snowball- Alice Schroeder - F Wall Street- Ponzio One more book, that taught me about stock investing in the past: - One up on wallstreet (or something like it)
As for "useless" advice I got: - "live just like you did before" - from people not knowing how badly, or how well I lived in the past. besides - what's the point of earning money if they don't change your lifestyle at all? - "sell it all, now!" - from the people who didn't & wouldn't buy in the first place - "keep it all, forever!" - from the same kind of people who invested in Pirate's funds and are afraid of btc failing if people start to cash in - "buy a house, pay off debt" - again - from people who don't know me/you. sometimes it's a good idea, sometimes you can get a better roi by not buying a house - "buy litecoins now" - there is no practical use for litecoins aside from speculation
As for the useful advice I received was to prepare my investment plan. I.e. how much % I plan to keep in ultra-safe investment vehicles, how much I can loan out to family, how much I can put into risky vehicles like Namecoin ;) Another useful advice was to keep a financial log. Each change I make in my portfolio I note down. It helps to clarify thoughts, eliminates a bit of emotional side, and allows you to learn from your successes & mistakes.
The two above points I'm using for a year now, so I can actually trace back why I bought bitcoins a year ago and ask myself whether it still holds true.
Finally, as for keeping BTC safe. I personally bought Asus EEE, installed a clean copy of Ubuntu, and turned off wifi. I kept my wallet there, and do not attach the netbook to the net. I have a copy of the wallet & my mpoe private key on an sd drive as a backup with me at all times. The sd card fits nicely into the jeans condom slot :) Everything is encrypted with a passphrase. Obviously.
I also have an MtGox account, with two-factor authentication (yubikey, and google authenticator on both my & my gf's phone), and a blockchain.info account, with two factor. Plus I've added a two factor authentication to my gmail account.
In case anything happens to me, there is a testimony written down, which contains all my passwords. I also trained my girlfriend in everything.
As for the cash taken out of bitcoins, my tax advisor is now learning what Bitcoins are, and figuring out how to tax it. It was a fun conversation.
Oh, and me, personally, I regret a bit already I shared with too many of my friends that I had so much btc. They're now calling me and asking whether I still have them :) I'm comfortable with just them knowing, but I wouldn't want the fame to go much further. If someone asks, I tell them that I sold most of my btc back when they were worth less. Which is almost true, anyway.
I also try to keep in mind, that the only "real" money that I have is the one I converted back to dollars, and sent to my bank account. Which "0" until I figure out how to tax this.
Finally - people are afraid of btc millionaires cashing out. I think they/us will to some extend, but due to the tax reasons, they/us will be pressured to spend it within the btc economy. That's good news for the btc price :)

Questions Answers
How does your company plan on staying competitive with other local exchanges coming out? Any plans on making an app? The company was started by Mike and Ryan, crypto-enthusiasts who saw problems in the marketplace when dealing in cryptos. They wanted an exchange that had a strong support team, legal visibility, operated somewhere where you could trust your money and had strong security - so in short they built it! We expect really big things for VoS and do indeed intend to be competitive with other exchanges, and yes, that does include building an app - we're currently exploring options in that field but we feel it crucial to take our time in doing that and put security first.
Why is it important for bitcoin companies to donate to charities? Or people to donate with cryptocurrency? Just wanna say thanks for being in the btc community and helping it grow and spread it around. Is there a lot of pressure on you now that you got your MSB? Any pressure from banks or government on how to behave? As for Charity we just feel its the right thing to do, I've always been a strong supporter of charities in my daily life and I brought that forward to VoS and the team agreed it made sense to gather up some funds for the Canadian Cancer Society given that April is their big fundraising month. On a grander scale I think it's important for cryptocurrencies to play a positive role in the world, let people know what we are all about, there is a lot of negative stigma about cryptos, some people say it's just kids "printing money", but it's a lot harder to say that when you're positively changing the world!
There's not any more pressure on us now than there was before - in fact I would say the MSB has taken some of the pressure off. We instead hold ourselves to the same laws and scrutiny as any financial institution would have to, and we feel this is best for our users and this sector as a whole. Getting the MSB let us know we had done everything right so far, and being in a new and evolving industry it's not always too clear if you're taking the right steps. The MSB is a checkmark that says "Hey you guys are as legitimate as you say you are" and we'll continue to hold ourselves to what ever rigorous standards we can (even when we don't need too). As far as external entities like Banks and Government - I think they are happy to see we have our MSB, I think it makes them more comfortable with the field in general and more willing to work with us. We recently met with our Member of Provincial Parliament and are setting up meetings with our Member of Parliament, and our Minister of Finance so they can see our operation here! The MPP certainly loved what we've got going!
That was a fast reply. Thanks for the response, you guys always been good with customer service :p . And thats great Mike and Ryan stepped up to be the ones to do it, it's a really much needed addition to the Toronto bitcoin scene. Oh man if Timmies was a payment I don't think Canada would need cryptocurrencies at all! Timbits everywhere! We love Tim Hortons - we usually start our Monday's with group coffee and donuts! So we are never opposed Timmies if you are dropping by for a visit :P (Compliance disclaimer: Timmies is not a valid payment method, just a staple at all Canadian meetings)
We also feel the importance of charities, especially with the nature of the bitcoin community always being a giving one. I hope you guys see good results n help the bitcoin image. We want to come visit you guys sometime, do you accept Tim Hortons as payment? :p.
The charity that you are donating to, do they accept btc or will you be converting it to fiat? We'll be convert it to Fiat.
Any plans on an Android app? We are looking into this, no formal timeline, but we're certainly exploring it!
It would be great if the volume would increase, can you comment on what is the strategy for getting more costumers? We are actually making a big push this spring in regards to our volume, including launching a highly competitive affiliates program that expect will grow our volume a great deal.
Any chance on improving the charts? (Or being included in bitcoinwisdom) We're always happy to take feedback on our charts, let us know what you want to see! As for Bitcoinwisdom, we've reached out to them multiple times, and added all the API support they need - just waiting on them to hopefully add us!
It currently takes ~3 days to get funds added to the balance, I presume that is mostly for security and because banks suck, are there plans to reduce this waiting time? We're looking at adding instant online debit transactions, no formal timeline on that yet but we are sure it will be great for our customers!
Glad SonOfAragon asked those questions so I don't end up repeating them and thanks for your reply Adam. However can you give us an idea of when you plan to launch the affiliates program/make the big push? If I sign up for an account, I'd probably want to beat the rush. We're actively working towards our affiliate program and our intention is to have it sometime this spring!
As someone who is completely ignorant of all things internet currency. can you please tell me how a beginner would go about getting into investing? (Lets say I have $10k of disposable income currently, would you suggest investing it all in bitcoin?) Hey Buildingdreams4,
That's a pretty hard question to answer, and so I can't give you an official Vault of Satoshi answer but I can give you a personal opinion. So please note this is my two cents and nothing VoS official.
Personally I have some experience in day trading and that's the best way to make money in such markets - however that's the kind of situation where you have to take risks, actively watch the market and only ever trade with what you have to lose (not only to avoid loss but also to make sure you are willing to take the level of risk needed to make strong returns.) I'd highly recommend learning about Forex trading before you dive into this.
That being said the Bitcoin community still feels strongly that their currency value will rise, subject to merchant adoption, legal/political landscapes and a number of other factors but I can't really comment on that as it is a real challenge to predict; there is also a great deal of merit to a number of altcoins with unique value - but just make sure you research and make informed decisions. Don't take anyone's advice at face value (mine included) research and invest where you feel comfortable.
What does vault think about VOS bitcoin atms? What can we do as customers to help you guys make this site better? As far as what customers can do - simply share the love! Tell your friends about VoS and always feel free to reach out to is with what you want to see on our site.
What about a physical location for vault deposits and verifications? We are currently examining new infrastructure opportunities that would allow us to accept physical deposits in more locations and we hope to have more information about that soon!
How does your reporting with with CRA? As for the CRA reporting I'm not sure what your exact question is, but as a registered business we report to the CRA in a typical fashion.
Is there any way to shorten deposit times? I'm super impressed that I can pay you like a bill directly from my bank account, but I'm bummed about how long it takes. If I send money to my vos account on a Thursday, I may not see those funds until Monday or Tuesday. If the exchange is open for trading on weekends, how about processing deposits as well? Hey Jay.
Also, what is done with the confidential info people upload to become verified? is it deleted? if it's kept on file, is access to it restricted to certain employees? We're currently working on a system that will allow immediate deposits via online debit! No formal time line yet but that will indeed make things much quicker!
Keep up the good work! Thank you. As for confidential information, if you have ever made a financial transaction on our website then we are required by law to keep a copy of that information. We take this responsibility very seriously, this information is encrypted and stored securely and is most certainly restricted access!
That's cool! Awesomesauce! I'm looking forward to it! Do you know if it will be limited like QuickBT (.2 BTC) or if there is some kind of daily limit? Also: when trading doge to btc I swear it took me half an hour to figure exactly how many doge I could buy with my btc including the fee. And I did it all wrong. I still have like .00066 btc left in my account which I guess is forfeit to the ether... Is there any way to put a helpful calculator on that page that figures it out for you??? As for your other question, as Xangelo said, we are working on improving the layout of our coin to coin system to make it less complicated. Being one of the first major exchanges to offer any coin to any coin means there is going to have to be some tweaking while we find out what the marketplace likes! But we're always open to feedback!
Would you rather fight a horse-sized duck or a hundred duck sized horses? Please elaborate. Feel free to answer individually. If there is anything that years of video game playing has taught me it's always pick the bigger monster over a ton of little ones! A hundred duck sized horses could quite quickly surround and nip and kick from all angles. Where as I feel that whilst a horse-sized duck would be absolutely terrifying my odds are better as I can always keep it in front of me (and perhaps distract it with breadcrumbs)
Also do you guys have any plans to change the buy/sell mechanic? I find its way too easy to accidentally make a buy order when you meant to make a sell order. As for the buy/sell mechanic it is something we are actively implementing and expect to launch in a couple weeks! Will make it easier to keep that straight!
My question: To be honest I've been using CaVirtex.How* would you say yours is better? We stand by our service as we are sure they do theirs, but at the end of the day it's about what better suits your needs. At the end of the day competition makes the market better for everybody!
Specifically, I would like to know what the nature of their cooperation and level of engagement is. Do they provide VoS with the absolute minimum of services as they would with any other business? Are they accommodative to specific VoS needs and requests related to crypto-currency specific challenges? Are they mutually active in developing services and infrastructure to support VoS/crypto-currencies? Are they taking a leading role in facilitating the necessary changes to support this new industry and growing public demand? Are you provided with a liaison to facilitate a closer working relationship? That being said when we did work with them they were fantastic, very supportive, and loved our business; the local branch went to some great lengths to help with our unique challenges and we certainly hope we can work with them again in the future.
Thanks for the reply! I feared as much having read about Cointrader in Vancouver being cut off by BMO in February. If I can follow up, how are your banking needs currently being met? We're currently actually streamlining our financials and will have more announcements on this soon. New partnerships are opening up doors to new payment methods and currencies and we're excited about that.
Are you planning to offer other services with altcoins? or you want to keep it solely as an exchange? We are exploring services beyond just exchange services - but we have no formal timelines on them yet! We'll be sure to let folks know!
Are you operating a full or fractional reserve and how much liquidity do you have available if tomorrow all clients wanted to withdraw all their funds? We are a full reserve exchange. We do have our holdings divided between our hot and cold wallets and top our hot wallet as it gets low. But we do have all the BTC we claim to and are actively working on a Proof of Solvency tool to verify this to users.
Which altcoins do you see as strongest going forward? Anything that has a unique value proposition and a strong community has the ability to go places but it's pretty hard to gauge these in advanced. We expect great things from the coins we've added/intend to add over the next month, which have all been announced.
Good to know Yubikey's available, thanks xangelo. Maybe one of your execs can chime in on the qualifications needed to join your verification team but that has me wondering...if a customer opens an account with VoS, can they still be hired, then close their account of course, or is that an automatic disqualification? By the way I didn't see a careers section on your site, are there plans for that once volume and I guess revenue increase? Just because you have an account with us, does not mean that you would be barred from applying for a job.
Currently we don't have any openings but when we do we'll be posting them to our website and all current positions would be located at our Brantford office.
Our verification system was designed by our exec team and our compliance officer and aided by our legal team; and our support staff handle the verifications. (Wasn't sure what you meant by "verification team") as for requirements for any opening, we'll be sure to post them with up coming jobs! Thanks for your inquiry though!
Thanks for clearing that up, I appreciate your thoroughness. Yes sorry, I was just speaking about FinCen to someone else before replying to this. I did mean Fintrac and I've edited the post!
I don't want to draw this exchange out too much but what puzzles me is your statement about FinCen compliance. If you're currently not accepting US customers, why would FinCEN compliance even be relevant? Let's say a customer lives in Canada. Wouldn't you simply have to comply with FINTRAC regulations, seeing as that's an a Canadian agency? And one other thing. Does Vos report transaction details to the CRA to meet fiscal obligations? As for CRA reporting I can not comment on that, however we follow all legal requirements of a financial institution dealing with proper reporting.
How does the US IRS deal effect things on your end? did this announcement open the door back up for USD wire transfers? The IRS statement actually doesn't change to much for us, FinCEN and other entities still consider it as currency - we're still actively looking into US options and moving forward on some with our legal team.
Do you see cryptocurrency status changing in Canada as a result of the US ruling? Do you have any indication of the direction that the bureaucrats will take? We have met with our Member of Provincial Parliament, are meeting with our Member of Parliament and are having a meeting with the Minister of Finance arranged to continue to advocate on behalf of cryptocurrency in Canada.
From everything we've been hearing, we're optimistic about Canada's role in the future of Cryptocurrency, people have been very forward thinking and accepting here!
Disapointed you're getting ride of the free cash-out by cheque. And do you plan to have some sort of automated EFT withdraw ? you allready have my bank account into. Write now it would seem simpler to move my BTC to cavirtex when I'm ready to make a withdraw to my bank account, as I can do it from the website. What am I missing here ? thanks. We are rolling out a number of new payment methods shortly that will make withdrawals easier for our clients.
Hey guys, thanks for doing this AMA. You were my first exchange, and gave me a warm welcome to the world of Cryptocurrency (free trading through Reddit promo, invited me for Doge cake) I've actually had the pleasure of talking to some reps from the MintChip program - we kept a careful eye on it but I know that the Mint is selling it off to private enterprise. While it is in a different space from us we are always looking at the evolving landscape of digital money and what can be done to promote that in Canada.
I was going to ask about your stance on MintChip, the Canadian government's digital currency program, but I just read they were looking to sell it off! Has there been any interest at Vault of Satoshi about this technology? While I don't think there is any direct partnership opportunities at this time it is always something on our radar and I think that MintChip was an interesting hardware development and it was great to see a federal institution being so forward thinking!
Can you tell us when and if you'll be able to operate as an exchange with USD? We currently do accept USD, we just can't accept it from US citizens or institutions.
That being said we are glad to announce we have identified our US re-entry strategy and are moving forward to launching in a few states first. We have no formal timeline on this yet, but it's a big step in the right direction.
Quick question, if in the future I choose to close my account with VOS, will all my info and history also be deleted from your servers? As per government regulations if you have ever made a financial transaction we are required to keep your information on file for seven years.
If you have not made a financial transaction you may email us with a request to delete your information. Please note that the request will be kept on file.
Hey guys, Are there plans to incorporate google authenticator? Thanks and keep up the good work! User we already support Google Authenticator, YubiKey, SMS, and Email for 2FA and will be adding Authy and Gemalto soon!
Is your $99 per month Unlimited Plan in USD or CAD? Please state it on your website. It is currently billed in USD as that's more widely accepted with our international audience.
When will Darkcoin, Worldcoin, Mintcoin, Cryptogenic Bullion, and Maxcoin be added? Those coins will be added in the next few weeks! We're pretty excited about that!
Hi there! I have a level 2 VOS account. I'm not really comfortable filling out the form for level 3. Currently I have to use QuickBT or an ATM to get BTC - which sometimes I turn into DOGE. (THANK YOU FOR ADDING BTC<->DOGE! you guys are lifesavers!!) We're actually working on adding an instant online Interac payment system, still no formal timeline but it's in the works. As for email transfers from BMO, BMO has come out and said they aren't working with businesses that operate in cryptocurrencies and so we can't accept funds from them on anything that would require us to have a BMO account or registration there. But, we can accept Pre-authorized debit and wire transfers from accounts there! Also feel free to email me about any concerns you may have about the level 3 account and I'll see if can't reassure you! ([email protected])
Just wondering why there is no support for an Email Transfer from BMO. Or online Interac payment, as that's the only reason I use QuickBT.
Would you rather fight a horse-sized duck or a hundred duck sized horse. I prefer horse sized ducks! What a kamikaze!
Don't be so sure. YES! Take that Angelo! Horsefish!
'disabled login' Another word, the exchange is down. I've been trying to login and access my funds for the past 5 hours. We're back up now!
No need to be alarmed though people; this is just a result of VoS being pro-active with patching up the latest SSL security bug (heartbleed). Ah yes, that is indeed a side-effect of the patch. While our systems weren't directly effected a load balance server hosted by Amazon would have been so to be better safe than sorry we've got them patching it and we are rolling over to new SSL certs! Always better safe than sorry!
I can see your exchange being the top exchange in Canada. Great work! I will come up to brantford one day after my exams and bring you guys some timmies, depending on the weather it could be coffee or ice caps, or just let me know ha :) As for the UI we're currently giving it an overhaul on our internal servers and hope to have more info on that soon!
I know it's not much but I just sent 6000 Dogecoins :) Every bit helps :)
Whats the yearly revenue and profit of your company? Sorry, as a private company we are going to abstain from answering that one - but even if we wanted too, we couldn't; we've only been around for six months so far!

Group buy for YubiKey (easy two factor authentication)

I figured this sub would be interested in this x-post from /massdrop: Massdrop is doing a group buy for the YubiKey Standard. If enough people buy them, they'll only be $15. Right now they're $23 with free shipping, so it's still cheaper than ordering them directly from Yubico. Here's the link (requires sign up): https://www.massdrop.com/buy/yubikey-standard
I've ordered two items from them in the past year with no trouble, so I think they're pretty safe to order from. They also accept bitcoin if you're into that kind of thing.
