    @HubXRP Bitstamp is a terrible exchange. Their KYC is out of line with everything reasonable.

  • MoneySmrt Peter 💰 (@MoneySmrt) reported

    @JacobCanfield No issue on Bitstamp also.

  • Dutch_XRP Dutch 孫 悟空 (@Dutch_XRP) reported

    I dont get the Bitstamp tradingview. It looks like when someone buys 100K XRP it goes up a notch but whenever someone sells 1000 XRP it goes down te same notch or sligtly more at times. Sup with that... #XRP

  • AlessandroAcer4 Alessandro Acerbis (@AlessandroAcer4) reported

    @haydentiff @ripppel @DloZambrano @Zack_Bennett @Thejoke93099730 @Crypto_DashODL @JoelKatz @nbougalis @WietseWind At least now that corps like Moneygram or Bitstamp don’t run validator yet, like a temporary situation to prevent problems with the network waiting for it to mature. I’m sure @IntermexWire and @MoneyGram will run their validators, considering they need a healthy network

  • Makabe93C Makabe93 Crypto (@Makabe93C) reported

    Monthly linear regression from the day BTC began trading on Coinbase (not much difference on Bitstamp , which began trading in 2011). The chart shows we have clearly broken past the mean and are continuing the longer term bull run which started in at the beginning of 2019 . . .

  • PattyB09952203 Patty B. ⚡️💕 (@PattyB09952203) reported

    @xrp_bullrun @XRPL_rabbit and @MsRabbitKick are also frustrated because of this same issue. Doesn’t make them bad either. They just want support from big business’s and it’s not there. @MoneyGram @Bitstamp and @sbivc_official need to see this! It could help the case. That’s all I think.

  • trispretty Tristan (@trispretty) reported

    @WietseWind @XRPLLabs OMG, sending from BitStamp was slow... AND I had to send 20 XRP. Still, enjoy

  • DeniLazeski deni_sum_jas (@DeniLazeski) reported

    @Del_Ryp @Bitstamp @BitstampSupport I had the same problem for a while,now it is ok but i can buy max 100e from my CC. I live in LT, probably depends from the country you live and their regulation. I know that was my problem.

  • JayNodelman JayBTC (@JayNodelman) reported

    $BTC it's an absolute battle between shorts and longs!!! Shorts with plenty of money are doing everything they can to try and bring the price down Watch the exchange Bitstamp because that is where they are focusing

  • haydentiff Tiffany Hayden🧢 (@haydentiff) reported

    @EDadoun @XrpAda2 @Bitstamp If you pulled a week without sleep holding up the network you wouldn’t disagree. Maybe it needs to go down so people will finally care.

    @WietseWind @nbougalis @Arturo_P_A @haydentiff @Dimitrykleijer @Bitso @BitrueOfficial @GateHub @CoinFieldEX @Bitstamp @BTCMarkets @BitkubOfficial @coinsph @sbivc_official No problem, we all need to prioritize. Who doesn't wish to have more time for this and that :)

  • haydentiff Tiffany Hayden🧢 (@haydentiff) reported

    @Arturo_P_A @Dimitrykleijer @Bitso @BitrueOfficial @GateHub @CoinFieldEX @Bitstamp @BTCMarkets @BitkubOfficial @coinsph @sbivc_official Because they don’t have to care about any of the other networks. XRPL would be an additional burden that they can’t pass off to their customers. They’d probably prefer an exorbitant transaction fee -not their problem.

  • haydentiff Tiffany Hayden🧢 (@haydentiff) reported

    @Arturo_P_A @Dimitrykleijer @Bitso @BitrueOfficial @GateHub @CoinFieldEX @Bitstamp @BTCMarkets @BitkubOfficial @coinsph @sbivc_official The problem is that they don’t really consider free transactions to be beneficial because if there was a fee, they’d just pass it along to their customers. Transactions are always free for them. With other crypto, miners are compensated so no issues. XRP & XLM rely on volunteers.

  • SterlingACrypto SterlingArcher (@SterlingACrypto) reported

    @PoiSzn Worth noting on some exchanges (Bitstamp) the trendline point (wick top) you have at ~0.5 price range is lower, which has the trendline tap another point at ~0.31 further down and results in the trendline being breached already.

  • Beaterino 💧Beaterino (@Beaterino) reported

    @TmillerTrades @coinbase I dont trad really but hav emany acounts on many exchanges. I swear. If shit goes down. CB is always one the first to shit the bed or doing some unscheduled maintenance. My experience worst to best CB BITMEX/Poloniex/Kraken Binance Bitrue Bitstamp. (only eur/xrp)never down

  • Coert86890842 Coert (@Coert86890842) reported

    @AndySpqr My phone were hacked multiple time with my Bitstamp running in the background on my iPhone and sometime in the act . Bitstamp is weak and have poor security. While I caught them in the act trying to enter I had to shutdown the phone to stop the code breaker to enter. Thumbs down

  • JoshMcGruff Josh McGruff (@JoshMcGruff) reported

    This is straight up FUD from a known scammer doing this for engagement. 1) Shows how dumb people are in this current state of society to knee-jerk RT shit without any verification and will believe any image. 2) I really hope @Bitstamp uses their vast resources to track him down

    @trispretty @Bitstamp You can withdraw to any bank account as long as it's held in your name. Just put down the banking information for your bank account of choice in the withdrawal form.

  • XRPFarmer DeadHeadXRP (@XRPFarmer) reported

    @CryptoBu77 @XrpCarolina @coinbase @CoinbasePro seemed to be working fine during that little breakout. It's regular @Coinbase that has problems. I got stuck in a trade ticking the top of the Spring rally on June 26th. 10 weeks to clear the trade.....backup for me is @Bitstamp. Or trade a @Ledger for bags of cash

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

    @xrpjs @TR10115 @CryptoZapper35 @GotNoGain @jungleincxrp @JamesMalpass12 @Bitstamp @SGgrc It's almost like a bank. They keep your fiat for you, and you can login at online banking (website/app) to access your balance and spend it. You only do this if you trust the bank. An IOU is quite similar, where you deposit to eg. Bitstamp, and they forward to an IOU.

    @BitstampSupport @buyemoney @Bitstamp Scam exchange stealing customer funds. You will hand them over when the police shut you down

  • JayNodelman JayBTC (@JayNodelman) reported

    $BTC I've mentioned it before and it's been happening again. Bitstamp is leading the way down. Often trading $10 or more lower than Coinbase or other exchanges. This constant selling on Bitstamp is causing lower btc prices... So why are they using Bitstamp todrive down the price

  • z_heisey Stacey Heisey (@z_heisey) reported

    @stedas @MarcelloB2612 @Bitstamp @BitstampSupport In top rt hand corner..3 on it..then settings..time correction for codes..sync now.. This fixed my issue..

  • hongkim__ Hong Kim (@hongkim__) reported

    So far, nobody has cracked the problem of having to pre-fund trades at crypto exchanges. This development of Bitstamp allowing leverage on collateral held at Silvergate, a regulated bank all the exchanges already use, could be the solution.

  • XRP10K XRP 10k (@XRP10K) reported

    @Kevin_Cage_ @cheetahboltzoom @coinbase +1 Bitstamp. Never had a problem in 3 years.

  • XRP10K XRP 10k (@XRP10K) reported

    @RosesOnThaMoon Yep notorious. Bitstamp has never been down for me. But they don’t allow easy CC purchase.

  • XRP10K XRP 10k (@XRP10K) reported

    @_Crypto_Maniac_ And when bulls turn to bears too. But I never saw Bitstamp go down in 2017 or any bull run.

  • Kevin_Cage_ Kevin Cage (@Kevin_Cage_) reported

    @cheetahboltzoom @coinbase Bitstamp, Uphold, etc. I just would go to the CMC Exchange & read options for XRP and go down the list and find the most reputable w adequate liquidity and security

  • BlueNETGaming BlueNET Crypto (@BlueNETGaming) reported

    @mitjaxrp @coinbase Well wait for the REAL #bullrun, that's when ALL #exchanges will be down.. Maybe @binance and @Bitstamp will have their system beefed up by then to handle the massive influx

  • btchomie Homero [BTC] (@btchomie) reported

    @ShadySlimFast It clearly show 'incorrect' data. Bitmex, Coinbase, Bitstamp and Binance have way more important things to show. But I agree, Bitfinex is illiquid and that's an issue for alts. However note that it has had margin on alts years before the rest. That's why some people stay

  • LudivineTrader Lud' (@LudivineTrader) reported

    @Ben_Pousty @Bitstamp Thanks for taking my problem to the next step. No proper solution has been brought to me for the moment. You will hear from me shortly either to tell you the problem is fixed or not.

  • LudivineTrader Lud' (@LudivineTrader) reported

    @BitstampSupport @Bitstamp @Ben_Pousty For the moment, the problem has not been solved. I still don't know where is my money. I will come back to you If I don't get a proper answer/solution within 24 hours.

  • ceterispar1bus Ceteris Paribus (@ceterispar1bus) reported

    *Bitstamp numbers are inflated because of issues tracking OTC movements. For a long term view, probably better to look at actual exchange balances. I’ll post something on this later.

  • ltbowers2003 Tony B (@ltbowers2003) reported

    Bitstamp closed down overnight.

  • P_V_1 PV (@P_V_1) reported

    @AzAscend In 2018 at bitstamp was one day prise over 7000 that day was my fastest login. When I refresh site went normal. So I left sellorder at that price. Two days later same story, no sellorder activated. It was mixed with btc. 19c is easy price, 7000 is when you will meet yourself.

  • MikeNardolillo Michael Nardolillo (@MikeNardolillo) reported

    @BullDawgBrewer @PbuzzXr @bankkupXrp @321yugelbaraeb @Bitstamp 2/2 to my xrp ledger account. This can be any asset they issue on the xrp ledger like bitcoin or USD. It can even be traded directly on ledger for other assets issued by other gateways

  • MikeNardolillo Michael Nardolillo (@MikeNardolillo) reported

    @BullDawgBrewer @PbuzzXr @bankkupXrp @321yugelbaraeb Sure! The xrp ledger is a decentralized exchange. a “gateway” means they issue assets on the ledger and facilitate the movement of money between the outside world and the ledger. So for example I can deposit money to @bitstamp. I can then Withdraw value from bitstamps exchange1/2

  • CryptoGainz1 CryptoGainz (@CryptoGainz1) reported

    @majinsayan @GainzyBot Those are spot exchanges. Bitstamp has absolute shit volume/liquidity and it’s very evident on lower timeframes, which will result in all sorts of unreliable divs. Margin exchanges with volume/liquidity don’t have this issue. Or even a spot markets on binance.

  • CryptoMtnDrew Mtn Drew (@CryptoMtnDrew) reported

    @HackermanAce @eToro No problem! Interesting that you're leaving coinbase but not because of fees. That's why I left them recently. I actually moved to Binance US for my fiat on-ramp. I'm a small fry so deep liquidity isn't a big deal. A lot of people use Bitstamp as an alternative too.

  • _HawkEye7_ HawkEye7 (@_HawkEye7_) reported

    BTC long, 1) Fibonacci retracement 38.2-23.6% support 2) Falling wedge pattern (bullish pattern) 3) Key Support 6,800 4) Possible divergence when price breaks down 7,000 #BTC #BITSTAMP #BITCOIN #BITMEX #BTCUSD #BTCUSDT

  • MikeNardolillo Michael Nardolillo (@MikeNardolillo) reported

    @SebastiantwJohn No problem! It’s a entity (could be anyone) who issues assets on the xrp ledger. Like bitstamp, Gatehub, or xago.... this was ripples first approach before ripple net....

  • kaddishcarlo Carlo Kaddish (@kaddishcarlo) reported

    as I’ve always said, in 2016 we were playing on a higher level. notice we haven’t even touched the broken triangle, not even once. this would explain polo and bitstamp’s long wicks in order to touch the triangle. but both immediately went back to the previous higher level.

  • block_real The_real_block_x (@block_real) reported

    @589Society @oilcandroid If it is a regulated exchange like bitstamp i dont think it would be a problem but still you would have to report it if its over 10k. Thanks anything. The actual number is $9,999 thats just the law of the land

  • BTCSchellingPt WizardofAus 🇦🇺⚡🌮 [Jan3🔑] (@BTCSchellingPt) reported

    @modencrypt @BTCXsweden @zebpay @Bitso @CoinCorner @BTCMarkets @Gemini @Bitstamp None of the exchanges I'm calling out are because I know they have any issues. The list of exchanges from across the 🌎 is in order to reach everyone: this is a global issue. The only way to validate that exchanges are behaving ethically is to withdraw all bitcoin on 3rd Jan.

    @TraceMayer @TechBalt @coinbase @BitMEXdotcom @Bitstamp @bitfinex @krakenfx @BittrexExchange @coincheck_en @Poloniex Last time I moved my bitcoin off binance to my trezor all my bitcoin was stolen. My trading and HODL stash was stolen right off my Trezor. I no longer listen to the noise and just trade the asset. So whatever... to the moon 🌝 storage will always be the issue when it comes to BTC

  • XFiresteve XRP FireSteve (@XFiresteve) reported

    @MattMarley52200 I had that problem two years ago when I was trying to buy more XRP on Bitstamp with Chase. I called and they said it was the Exchange not the card, but this was also at the time when CC companies like BOA were trying to stop customers from using there cards for buying Crypto.

  • mkomaransky Mike Komaransky (@mkomaransky) reported

    @galenmoore @coindesk More realistic: 1) Borrow $33M of BTC at 4:1 2) Use $10M of BTC margin at bitmex to build $50M short at 7700 3) Push bitstamp down with 3k BTC sell order, ave sale = 6866 4) Cover Bitmex and Bitstamp shorts at 6700, earning $7M This trade requires $8.3M in capital and earns $7M.
