Hi @krakensupport I can’t access my account. I get 404 error while trying to log in.
@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.
@vinswalla @krakenfx “The delay in the ETH deposit was due to a temporary gateway issue that our developers fixed”.
@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.
@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.

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

@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.
@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.

@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.

@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.
@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.
