  • _cln27 cln27 (@_cln27) reported

    Hi @krakensupport I can’t access my account. I get 404 error while trying to log in.

  • RealMcB1 RealMcBastard (@RealMcB1) reported

    @Paisan26849860 @antoniobrasse @LeoHadjiloizou @Ripple @BlockQuake @miguelvias @binance @BittrexExchange @bitpanda @coinbase @krakenfx Most “hacks” are inside jobs. Pissed off employees, bad patching and Error 40 (problem sits 40cm from the screen 😊) by either phishing or simply basic lack of knowledge. We are starting to see quite advanced phishing jobs here though. CEO fraud, C-level blackmail, etc.

    @Paisan26849860 @LeoHadjiloizou @Ripple @BlockQuake @miguelvias @binance @BittrexExchange @bitpanda @coinbase @krakenfx This is a huge problem. I'm from traditional finance/internal control audit and this practice is generally illegal in traditional markets. I believe regulators will crack down on this soon.

  • BestformofMoney bestformofmoney (@BestformofMoney) reported

    @vinswalla @krakenfx “The delay in the ETH deposit was due to a temporary gateway issue that our developers fixed”.

  • elcrypto10 El Crypto (@elcrypto10) reported

    @midmagic @ProofofResearch @khunFYP @krakenfx @BitMEXResearch @nikuhodai I believe the premium was because of how slow it was to get fiat off and people were buying up coins just to get off of the exchange. Canadian exchanges have frequently had premiums (not usually 10% though) I can remember Coinsquare having a premium on QCX at one point.

  • Twentytwintwi20 Twentytwintwin (@Twentytwintwi20) reported

    @amamam878 @baidakova @QuadrigaCoinEx @binance @bitfinex @Poloniex @krakenfx @coindesk True. They're obsessed with the btx question but the evident issues of DCG projects they wouldn't see even if we point the finger at them.

  • Cryptometrix ⚡️ CryptoMetrix ⚡️ (@Cryptometrix) reported

    Last year I considered bailing on @krakenfx cuz the system was so slow, you had to enter trades 10 times for it to take. I’m glad I didn’t. Lately I’m so impressed with @krakensupport and the exchange as a whole... it’s fast, the most secure with the best support I’ve experienced

  • nebraskangooner NebraskanGooner (@nebraskangooner) reported

    @imkeshav @krakenfx I should've long ago. I tried signing up in 2017 and had issues with them and heard their interface was slow so never followed up on it. Seems they've improved.

  • mrjosh__ josh (@mrjosh__) reported

    @krakenfx @cryptoproapp I’m having problems with the API feature. - “network Issue”

  • garetmckinley Garet (@garetmckinley) reported

    @BitVoltMining @PhilipLiu @APompliano @QuadrigaCoinEx @krakenfx You might be misreading my tone, I'm not in any way anti-crypto. I'm just pointing out the major flaws that will affect consumer's trust in the current state of the industry. OP was acting like crypto is superior simply because there was a bank outage today.

  • BitVoltMining V O L T ⚡️ (@BitVoltMining) reported

    @garetmckinley @PhilipLiu @APompliano @QuadrigaCoinEx @krakenfx Banks had the same problem back in the day, the same exact ones that exchanges going belly have today. In fact it still happens in banks in 3rd world countries. This isn't unique to cryptocurrency, you just live in a 1st world country.

  • garetmckinley Garet (@garetmckinley) reported

    @BitVoltMining @PhilipLiu @APompliano @QuadrigaCoinEx @krakenfx IIRC they have ~$100B line of credit with the treasury. for those instances. Even if that doesn't cover 100% of the losses for every single account, that's better than the zero dollars consumers get when an exchange that's storing your crypto goes down.

  • BitVoltMining V O L T ⚡️ (@BitVoltMining) reported

    @garetmckinley @PhilipLiu @APompliano @QuadrigaCoinEx @krakenfx You can't store 100M in a safe, you can't send money across the planet instantaneously in a safe. So no terrible comparison. If you have been in crypto long enough you understand your keys your wallet, not your keys not your wallet. Banks are not exchanges.

  • JaredHarrill Jared Harrill 🐧 (@JaredHarrill) reported

    @jespow @QuadrigaCoinEx @rcmpgrcpolice @krakenfx Again, pretty sure he did die, it was news in the Vancouver scene. Doesn’t mean something fishy didn’t happen or solvency issues weren’t involved.

  • the256Xclub Crypto_Rooster (@the256Xclub) reported

    @jespow @QuadrigaCoinEx @rcmpgrcpolice @krakenfx A North American guy with Chron's travelling to India, where it's well-known that tourists often come back with serious stomach problems is suspect. Also, news coming out about QCX co-founder Michael Patryn is Big Time Red Flag.

  • kurtsmock Kurt Smock (@kurtsmock) reported

    @TheKPAXian @jespow @krakenfx I've lost a lot of money to fees, but I've never had any issue with the several deposits and withdrawals I made.

  • TheKPAXian Alin (@TheKPAXian) reported

    @jaynemesis @krakenfx I can't believe it's 2019 and you still give your money to these #thieves. @krakenfx steals money. They stole $9000 from me and all they could say was: "Sorry, it was a glitch, but there's nothing you can do to get your money back". Hey @krakenfx, I'll see you burn!

  • zolal_alvi Thunder Bolt ⚡ (@zolal_alvi) reported

    @Capintxu @turzorg @krakenfx @jespow Yeah i get it they had few issues a while back but since the update of there system i guess it was last year or 2017 I never had a issue.

  • bill_baruch Bill BL Futures (@bill_baruch) reported

    @RampCapitalLLC I had a password issue. And @krakensupport refused to reset my password for nearly 6 months because the precious developers were “too busy”. Not how you run a business.

  • acrataPwned Mi primer Bitcoin (@acrataPwned) reported

    @krakenfx I can't login the web, it says page not found

  • Capintxu Capi (@Capintxu) reported

    @zolal_alvi @turzorg @krakenfx @jespow Lucky you.Hope u never run into issues like I did.Their faulty system did not run my stop order and they refused to pay for my loss. In IT you don't measure quality as lack of issues (there are always issues and that's ok) but with the response you get when shit happens.

  • pa9327 b1tc01n_27 (@pa9327) reported

    @coindesk @krakenfx if they can fix their shitty interface maybe people will use it more

  • nbougalis Nik Bougalis (@nbougalis) reported

    @peterktodd @haydentiff @krakenfx There’s only one meaning for the term validator in the context of the XRP Ledger: a server that publishes signed statements about which transactions came before the cutoff for building the current ledger.

  • JonRahFullerton Jonathan Rahul Fullerton (@JonRahFullerton) reported

    I like how @krakenfx is offering support to police for the @QuadrigaCoinEx problem. Exit scam or tragedy, @SafeHavenio could legally prevent @QuadrigaCoinEx problems from happening. #cryptocurrency #bitcoin

  • RobertGenito Robert Genito (@RobertGenito) reported

    @jespow @QuadrigaCoinEx @rcmpgrcpolice @krakenfx Make sure this never happens to Kraken: DM me about how Genitrust has solved the problems associated with digital asset storage, management, and transaction deployment. We can help, and wish Quadriga would have responded to us years ago! :(

  • olthoff Mike Olthoff ⚡ (@olthoff) reported

    @jespow @IamNomad @QuadrigaCoinEx @rcmpgrcpolice @krakenfx To be fair, Fiat problems started about 12 months ago and have been bad ever since. Yes they got worse as time went on because more and more people were seeing the issues and trying to get out.

  • itsMattMac Matt MacPherson (@itsMattMac) reported

    @ManveerJarosz @jespow @Crypto_inspect @QuadrigaCoinEx @rcmpgrcpolice @krakenfx I’m down on one knee proposing right now. Forgive me my dear lovely Kraken, I won’t ever look at another exchange again.

  • IamNomad I am Nomad (@IamNomad) reported

    @jespow @QuadrigaCoinEx @rcmpgrcpolice @krakenfx the wild card people are ignoring is that this wasnt just a sudden or current month events. CIBC has been sitting on their funds for at least the 8 months that ive slightly paid attention. Previous to that they still had problem filling large cash order (call it 5M)

  • jespow Jesse Powell (@jespow) reported

    @IamNomad @QuadrigaCoinEx @rcmpgrcpolice @krakenfx Yes, could be true but the circumstances in the month leading up to this make it extremely suspect. It's like a Gox/Cryptsy combo. Fiat problems, crypto withdrawals up, capitulate/vanish. Would like to have more conclusive information and speak to law enforcement before sharing.

  • olthoff Mike Olthoff ⚡ (@olthoff) reported

    I'm pretty sure @krakenfx has swallowed most of Quadrigas volumes in the last couple days. I could be wrong but I think their volume in CAD has doubled since the shut down of QCX. They are also currently the cheapest place to buy, by at least $100 CAD per coin.

  • Elicrypto Alibaba Group ⚡ (@Elicrypto) reported

    @TheKaoticS @krakenfx They can't afford to serve NY and WA residents lol.... once Wall Street exchanges open up, Coinbase will go down to shit, god knows what will happen to Kraken

  • TheKaoticS KaoticS (@TheKaoticS) reported

    @krakenfx "We update the look of the website!" - Literally new login page, and a few new colors on the SAME layout and design. You guys really are about to go out of business 🤣🤣. High fees per trades. Horrid rate limits. No liquidity. GG

  • samdesborough Sam Desborough (@samdesborough) reported

    @krakensupport I'm getting an "account temporarily disabled" error when trying to log in. Username is "desbo"

  • Xessive72 Xessive Troll (@Xessive72) reported

    @Coin_Shark @krakenfx I hope they did a hardware upgrade also. Whenever btc pumps their servers go down...

  • Crypt0Entropy Crypto Entropy (@Crypt0Entropy) reported

    @jxgbtc @Josh_Rager @krakenfx @BitMEXdotcom Oh I was just referring to the UI. Very clunky, yes. No issues, but too tedious to quickly make moves. My only legal option for shorting in the U.S. so it works. Just hoping the UI is better :)

  • ProofofResearch CryptoMedication (@ProofofResearch) reported

    @alchemi78326774 @bitfinex @Tether_to @krakenfx @barrysilbert @rogerkver @ErikVoorhees Thank you for this. I would RT it, but I don't want to widen the scope too much of what I'm drilling down in terms of these exchanges.

  • CopePosting Logan (@CopePosting) reported

    @phzix @frankkane @SamouraiWallet @BitPay @BtcpayServer @blockchain @Bitcoin @btc @krakenfx He does own a portion of kraken though... This original tweet is terrible.

  • obrienjpat Patrick O'Crypto (@obrienjpat) reported

    @Josh_Rager @Dr_Crytpo @Secret_Profits @krakenfx @BitMEXdotcom Everyone has ‘horror’ stories. I call bs, all second hand info. Two years without incident. My guess is anyone who has problems is generating suspicious activity like trying to log on from different countries. VPN isn’t a singular answer, also need common sense.

  • pierre_rochard Pierre Rochard [⚡️] (@pierre_rochard) reported

    @SanctiGrail @newsbtc @krakenfx @jespow @lopp @VitalikButerin @cz_binance @fluffypony @zooko I have zero problem with those bankers to assume that the Maduro regime is evil and should not receive any wealth, which they would just use to further their corruption and oppression. Morality and ethics should absolutely interfere in finances.

  • CurrencyTycoon Currency Tycoon (@CurrencyTycoon) reported

    @alexbadalyan @hrdwrknvrstps @TuurDemeester @Hacken_io @krakenfx @jespow Most users are idiots. Apple (and other makers) strike the balance between dumbing it down for security and keeping the idiots satisfied at the same time 😁

  • Robin_Keith Keith Richards (@Robin_Keith) reported

    @TuurDemeester @Hacken_io @krakenfx @jespow Kraken doesnt have a top 15 crypto. If binance went down so would Bnb. I like @cz_binance.

  • Uruncles Uruncle (@Uruncles) reported

    @epid3mija @cz_binance @bitfinex @krakenfx @BitMEXResearch @Bitstamp @OKEx @DeribitExchange ...and yes email is usually really bad because usually there is no encryption. is better for transfer, but files may end up getting store somewhere on the web server because it is convenient for exchanges.

  • Sicarious_ sicarious (@Sicarious_) reported

    @TuurDemeester @Hacken_io @krakenfx @jespow Odd that Trex got dinged on historical, in the past 5 years I can't think of one breach there that wasn't user error.

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

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

  • joes_mcgill Joe McGill (@joes_mcgill) reported

    @Timccopeland @jespow @binance @BittrexExchange @bitfinex @krakenfx Hackers operating phishing sites have preyed upon rookie crypto users. Would not be surprised if attacker’s exploited this tactic and collected legitimate KYC before site was taken down for abuse etc.

  • cryptoLTdan Lt. Dan (@cryptoLTdan) reported

    @Cryptow15308585 @GuillomPerdro @bitfinex @BittrexExchange @binance @HuobiGlobal @krakenfx @OceanexOfficial True. But I just avoid projects that get shilled by people with a lot of followers. I’m not saying it’s terrible but I’ve seen so many sheep get rekt by icx, drgn, xrp, xvg, etc. no one really knows what the projects are doing because they aren’t transparent.

  • JonnyMoeTrades Jonny Moe (@JonnyMoeTrades) reported

    @hernzzzzzz @zergbtc @ledgerstatus @krakenfx Cryptowatch is much better from a usability perspective, but unfortunately there are still many limitations with Kraken's infrastructure. The OB only updates about once a second, there are a lot of "rate limited" error messages, and margin positions don't always reflect properly

  • Seek1Truth TheTruthSeeker (@Seek1Truth) reported

    @Silkjaer @haydentiff @cryptonatorcom @ALFAcashier @krakenfx @binance Unfortunately jurisdiction is ultimately the issue. If it is cross boarder then literally nothing will happen. Maybe the exchange freezes the account that’s about it.

  • CryptoCX1 Crypto Mikey (@CryptoCX1) reported

    Short orders hit and stopped at 3950 cause......crypto. Thanks @krakenfx. Will be looking for longs on another leg down, should it come. Buying spot here.

  • Casteleah_E CastelE (@Casteleah_E) reported

    @CryptoN_T @alistairmilne @krakenfx @LefterisJP @SEC_Enforcement And then they deleted the first 33k blocks to remove this proof and said it was a "bug and backup" issue

  • scoaliera Scoaliera (@scoaliera) reported

    @jespow @krakenfx @LedgerHQ @Trezor DEXs are evolving. Even newer platforms (albeit not fully decentralised) and KISS rule contracts are incorporating a layer for familiar hardware (LedgerS/Trevor/etc) control from which users initiate trades. And I’m down for exploits being identified sooner as was the case in btc

  • MZietzke Matthew Zietzke (@MZietzke) reported

    @drchgeor @fivebuckscom @krakenfx @krakensupport Fivebucks customers are directly affected. The "gap" you see is a manufactured issue. Fivebucks works because they don't have to deal with the insane cuts traditional fiat payment systems take. If customers of Fivebucks need conversion, that's another service's job.

  • MZietzke Matthew Zietzke (@MZietzke) reported

    @drchgeor @fivebuckscom @krakenfx @krakensupport Don't get me wrong, there *are* fundamental truths in this world... But that isn't one of them. Treating it (rather, that type of opinion,) as such leads you down some rather dark paths. It leads you to ignore extremely valuable perspectives.

  • kixunil MⒶrtin HⒶboⓋštiak [🔑 ~6y before deadline] (@kixunil) reported

    @jespow @StopAndDecrypt @krakenfx @LedgerHQ @Trezor Dao was the result of using over-complicated Turing-complete smart contract written in terrible language inspired by another terrible language. Anyone expecting this to work doesn't know enough about programming or is crazy. That being said, I don't defend any particular DEX.
