My "trading CEX " has not informed my tax authorities about my account, I know that for a fact! I will clam I just lost my keys I use a non-custodial wallet, if they ever asks what I did with the bank deposits I made into "another CEX" because my bank on the other hand could inform the tax authorities. My tax authorities is not going to hire a forensic accountant that's for sure. Maybe they did this in your country.
Isn't crypto a dangerous game in general, isn't that what we are for as degenerates? Just joking! Well I just lost my private keys if someone from the tax authorities ask. I had crypto currencies for years now and they never asked, I never sold it for fiat anyway and I don't keeping it on a CEX. I think I have to move to country who doesn't care about taxes in general so much, as long as you pay them something and it's several countries like that. How does it work in Germany, do you pay different crypto taxe rate in each state?
integrating Web3 and digital ownership into hypercasual games makes this project not just accessible but fun! With 2.5M+ web3 wallets activated and a choice of listing CEX like Bitget and the others. it’s fair to say they are leading the Web3 gaming revolution.
OP wrote this in English, then translated it to Chinese, and then from Chinese back to English again, using Google Translate, it seems... Anyway, he's saying that people who find low caps on-chain through stuff like dexscreener are earlier than people on CEXs, waiting for a listing to trade. By the time the token is on a CEX, people who found it and traded on a DEX are already up multiple X. He's not wrong, but he just thinks he's some kind of hot shot because he compares himself to boomers using exclusively CEXs lmao. The day OP will use flash loans, delta neutral strategies, arbitrage bots, or do algorithmic event based trading, will be the day OP must be taken seriously. Today is not that day. Oh and regarding utility, OP is just ignorant and wrong, because RWAs are already proving him wrong.
If he used any CEX and they were audited by the IRS, they would know he had up to $X sold through them. Now they know you should have some reported sales. Now they say huh, this guy didn't report any cost basis for those sales. Looks like he has a tax bill on the full face value of the assets he sold. "Dear Degenerate Gambler, please pay the man $Y." Oops now I need to prove to them I only made some mistakes in my tax filing. My cost basis was $Z from 2015, and I also had these losses in year 2021, and uh... shit...
Good thing is it’s IBC enabled chain*, you can move your CRO and explore whole Cosmos ecosystem, which is kinda fire these days, and few good projects still not on any CEX. *Keplr doing IBC transfers directly from the wallet, which is neat and no bridging fees.
US is crazy, thay barely know what crypto currency is here, I'm in a western county, but I never bother to learn the the tax regulations, I just assumed you tax on fiat gains that you receive in your bank account here. Plus I use a non-custodial storage solution, trading back and forward doing all kinds of things in DEX and somethimes in CEX, maybe it's time to at least learn my local tax regulations..
Even before they nerfed their debit cards the required stake for good rewards made absolutely no sense to me from a risk/reward standpoint. Assuming you're able to and have a good credit score... just get a good credit card that requires no stake and no risk of loss due to theft, fraud, etc. You can take the rewards you get from them to buy more crypto. Different story if you have a lot of crypto and want an easy way to spend it directly without interacting with fiat system I guess. But honestly... what entity do you trust more with your debit balance? A CEX or a bank/credit union? Or use something like the Coinbase card that requires no stake in a very volatile token.
Serious reply: I am there with you, 100% on chain. But I also have many reasons in my mind why majority aren’t. 1) They are afraid, for a reason. It’s like 95% of the tokens launched on Ethereum (which is still the only real chain to trade on chain despite the gas fees, volume = money) are either rugs or simply die within 3 days. 2) the gas fees are going to kill you if you don’t possess sufficient skills for the craft to outcome them in profit. Just today I paid 20$ gas fees to sell 75$ worth of my tokens that were left from my 250$ position that I opened with 35$ gas fees. And it’s normal, and I am happy I at least got to keep that money as I am prepared to loose everything always. 3) People don’t know the game, they loose, they think it’s somehow abnormal or unfair, they don’t know the bots, they don’t know the wild west. I would not suggest anyone who doesn’t have the right mentality to ever go there. But for me it is absolutely the right place. It’s just a different game. Risk vs reward. If one is happy with low risk and reward, CEX is the way, if one wants the Lambo with 2k starting balance, on chain is the only option, imo. But one has to have understanding, clear plan, and be prepared to loose it all many times.
Also bought at . 6, ive SCA since and almost breaking even right now. I believe it is all up from here. Cryptocom is the most regulatory compliant CEX and plays the long game. CDC also joined the WEF and is advertised on their site. My non financial advice is to hodl . $1 goal is likely.
Nothing is 100% safe, this goes with banks too. But Coinbase is one of the better CEX out there, especially since they're willing to fight in court for their business. It shows they have nothing to hide and they want to run a legitimate business. But we'll see how this plays out. In contrast to Kraken that bent the knee and gave the SEC a fat stack of money only to be sued again. I had a feeling they were hiding something.
Coinbase really does strike me as the safest CEX. I'm currently trying to decide whether to keep all my crypto there or split it between there and my ledger. The Ledger is just so damn inconvenient but the SOL staking on it is out of this world
This misconstrues the point. The point is CEX (such as Coinbase, Binance, Tether... and yes, Tether is a CEX of USD into USDT...) are operating a business model that effectively uses customer funds to insure business losses. If the business makes a mistake and goes bankrupt, customers end up standing with creditors.
Bridging from L1 to L2 will cost you a bit in fees. Ideally you buy something from a CEX that allows you to directly transfer crypto to your L2 of choice, or you transfer USDC/etc. to that chain and then make a DEX trade so you don't have to touch L1 directly at all.
They wanted to open on 30th of November. See how that's going? It's a classic play for an insolvent CEX. Meanwhile moderators of this sub have removed several topics that tried to make the general public aware of what is going on behind the scenes * [HTX is Crypto Exchange of the year 2023 (award) - meanwhile withdrawals are still closed ](https://np.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/188ak6z/htx_is_crypto_exchange_of_the_year_2023_award/) * [Justin Sun's "exchanges" HTX and Poloniex are still closed. Will they ever open up again?](https://np.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/186qvso/justin_suns_exchanges_htx_and_poloniex_are_still/)
>On the other hand, some believe that Bitcoin ETFs are just “watered-down crypto” and a sign the industry is heading in the wrong direction. They are "watered" down but it's only a sign we're heading in the wrong direction if all CEX and DEX shut down, all wallets close up shop, all chains hard fork to only support institutional addresses, etc. Despite what people like to believe, two opposite things can happen at once and the only result is that two opposite things happen at once. It's also a global asset. There are places where everyone eats good and the economy is fine, For them, the only point of crypto is speculation and self-custody is a fun nerd hobby. There are places where people aren't eating fine, annual inflation has been over 10% for the past 25 years and anyone over the age of 21 has lived through the banks seizing assets on a country wide level. For them, self-custody and access to US dollars is the entire point. Speculation is a rich foreigner hobby.
Main difference for ME is the tax benefits of purchasing spot ETFs is that I can hold it in a tax sheltered account. This allows me to save a ton on capital gains. If you buy on a CEX, you run risk of a financial collapse or fraud. IMO if you are uncomfortable with holding your own keys it’s ok holding it in an etf or a reputable CEX like coinbase.
Any crypto that is POS doesn't make it a security. Unless you're talking about CEX coins staked etc then yes, as the CEX is securitng that 1 crypto for another staked. When you unstake you claim the secured crypto back. Regarding your other point about SEC suing Vitalik or Lubin, again.. why? I'm not sure what crystal ball you've got there :D Like this article stating ETH at 28K which I don't agree with but 7k ETH next year is plausible even without a SPOT ETH.
FTX depositors are paying a lot of tuition to learn why it's bad news to be in the cheap seats as a creditor. Using CEX where your coins are not held in a legally defensible trust (not someone's contractual statement e.g. "your coins are yours") is perfectly fine. Until it isn't. And then you lose it all.
I wouldn't make any swaps on Ethereum. Way too expensive. Wait for the bull market... 150$ fee for 1 transaction haha. You can use L2 solutions. Arbitrum works like a charm. You can easily bridge your funds from Eth mainnet to Arb and then do your thing there. If you are withdrawing your funds from CEX, you don't even need to pay bridge fee. For example, on binance I can withdraw my ETH for 0.4 usd to Arbitrum and do my thing there.
Ethereum is a relatively slow chain, with a big demand behind it. To solve this problem, they have a fee structure model that fluctuates the fees you pay, based on the demand of the time you are trying to use it. So, if there are many people that are trying to make transactions on Ethereum, at a particular moment, the gas fees are high (in the event of a big mint they could go to the hundreds or even thousands of dollars in ETH). In some low-traffic hours (especially in the early morning US hours, and weekends) the fees are lower. When you are trying to swap a coin on the Ethereum chain, you are using a Decentralized Exchange (DEX), which has a small percentage fee (\~0.3%) on your purchase, which varies among DEXes, and a "flat gas fee" which is based -as I said earlier- on how busy is the network at the moment. The last weeks, Ethereum is busy and the fees are high. Especially for smart contract interactions, which are more complex (like a swap) they are really high. You were lucky with the $16 gas fee to be honest. Also, to clarify what you said, when you sell your tokens that you purchased to cash-out, if they have been up in value, you won't pay thousands of dollars in gas fees. As I said, the gas fee, is based on the traffic of the network and the complexity of the transaction. So, the complexity will remain the same (you did and you will do a swap), so the only thing that it will change is the traffic on the Ethereum blockchain. If it is less loaded than now, you will pay a smaller fee than the 16$ you paid now, if it is more loaded, more. So, what you should do? Ethereum blockchain is extremely expensive, especially if you are not doing big transfers or swaps. So, the best way, is to buy your ERC-20 tokens from a Centralized Exchange (CEX) if they offer them (so if you are not buying shitcoin territory tokens), because you will not pay the transaction fee, just the fee that the specific CEX imposes. Big exchanges are relatively cheap, if you trade the coins and tokens in their spot market interface. You should always remind yourself though, that if you want your ERC-20 tokens on your personal wallet (which is good for decentralization) you will pay a relatively big withdrawal fee from a CEX, because... Ethereum. One, other solution, is to leverage some layer-2 on Ethereum, such as Optimism or Arbitrum, and buy your Ethereum tokens using a DEX that supports those networks. But, before starting to experiment with layer-2s and side chains, you should first understand them, and the pros and cons that they have. Good luck, whatever you decide to do.
Everyone will have their own list of reasons, but for me personally: * The project is one of very few that adheres to the Bitcoin ethos of decentralization, the biggest point for me. * ADA has been a pretty much consistent top 10 project since launch in 2017. * ADA, BTC, ETH were the only top 10 projects to reach new ATH last cycle (excluding CEX coins) * Mr. H, he is a **net good** for both Cardano and the industry as a whole. The constant anti-CH circle jerk in r/cc was old years ago. * Arguable the best implementation of PoS, and general easy of use.
I personally have good experience with such an exchange token as WBT, it aroused a lot of interest among users of the Whitebit exchange and attracted new investors, which at first allowed me to earn several times on this token, and then it became profitable to be its holder. So, I think CEX exchange tokens are quite an interesting tool for profit and more
Most price action comes from hype…I’m more of a value investor when it comes to traditional stocks so any crypto I invest in I try and apply some logic and thought. Often traditional metrics are hard to apply. Basic mcap based on total supply is a good starting point for me. Essential to know and fundamental to establishing if it is overvalued. Function of the token. Really depends on what the token is doing. Is it a currency or is it for utility or is it just some shitcoin. An easy one I tend to avoid are governance tokens as I can’t see the valuations that are often attributed to these. Centralised or decentralised is also a big consideration, some tokens that are more ripe for value analysis often are the products of a company or are tied to the success of some real world application. These are essentially centralised, having a real world point of failure or external dependency which will trump any of the tokenomics and often makes it too risky. Earnings. This is a tricky one. In the crypto world the earnings can be a fee share from say a CEX, an interest payment from staking your coins or a sales share/ utility fee share. As noted depends on utility of token. For example Chainlink is a pricing oracle that DeFi applications will pay a fee to use the price feed generated by their protocol. I see this as pretty good use case (this is on my hit list to do some numbers on) Velocity of token. This is also worth considering. If there are billions of tokens and the interaction is seconds then the high velocity means in longer term the supply will always be high and therefore price will not increase (unless there is clear demand use case). Bitcoin is a good example of a low velocity coin, where most of these are essentially locked away, with low supply available at any time. I’ll add some more if I have time.
You will have a fucking nightmare trying to rationalize a lot of small to large cap with P/E ratios, active addresses, growth, and gas cost. A whole large part of this space shill coins they don’t even use, understand, etc. The best example is trying to understand Link market cap. A whole lot of them don’t even go on chain but park it on some brokerage or CEX. So they don’t contribute to active addresses or whatsoever. And Link’s P/E is so bad…. Lol. Some coins’ valuations simply correlate with the level of retardation/zealotry of their community. It applies broadly to memecoins and some big caps like Link. When it comes to memecoins, you will find it more useful to check their telegram to temperature check their level of retardation. If you get any sense majority of mid curvers, sell the hell out. You need left curvers and some right curvers to get a good mix. Ppl who understand market caps won’t be hodling like Shiba Inu army. This space also has large cap bias. Meaning if you are a large cap, you don’t get easily knocked off, see Cardano. Think I have pissed off enough ppl, lol. Another aspect is repositioning and novelty. A lot of new coins have new and untested narratives. You will see irrational divergence between similarly built stuff, see Aptos vs Sui. Novelty commands a premium. see Celestia as a recent example. When ppl see novelty, they will reposition, given how low liquid the market is, you get pumps. Playing with novelty with DYOR is playing with fire. It is best to have a novelty sharing synergy with existing chains. That way, you can get other ecosystem participants to come and speculate. When they see complementarity, they feel less threaten about their bags in order to support new project. This shit space is primal and ape shit tribal. It is probably because too many have banked 99%+ of their future wealth on their bags so they can’t really think clearly a lot of times. Also, it is important to understand novel fads from novel long term narratives. The former only gets you degen money who flees like rats when the ship starts to sink. The latter can actually build a community.
Absolutely. I think FTX going down really hurt that. Other mainstream CEX need to go hard this run to prove to the world that they can be trusted. Even on CB there is constant hacking and other issues which hinder the public from real mass adoption. At this point, more retail investors have lost money on CEX than made money.
Well this sub would have you believe that Binance is artificially propping up BNB and the whole house of cards is coming down any day now, lol. My time in defi has taught me that DEX + CEX coins are pretty much a fools game though. They are definitely some of my loss leaders, whatever you do DO NOT buy these coins after pumps, they are constantly printing and you will get dumped on.
If you're looking for a CEX/dex with lower fees I recommend checking out [WOO.org](http://woo.org). WOOx is their centralized platform that offers zero fee trading to users who stake 1800 woo (less than $400). They have very tight spreads and amazing liquidity as well. WOOFi is their decentralized platform that also has very low fees, I use WOOFi for most of my trades as I prefer self custody. $WOO current mktcap is $381mln.
Run from this. Here is the story about VGX. Voyager, a now defunct and bankrupt CEX also sold their coin called VGX. If you held VGX, especially in large amounts, you would earn more interest/return from their "EARN" program, which was an unsecured loan program. Search for this post in reddit to view those Redditors that lost it all, "How much did everyone have on voyager? I had 30k and my husband 150k ish . Trying to feel better" A few people lost $150k-800k. Not only did people lose all the coins they loaned out, but the VGX token also got wiped out.

Yes, everybody shits on CEXs in the cryptocommunity but reality is that CEX offer more safety to regular users that dont have the discipline to keep their funds safe by themselves. Id hazard a guess and say that 80% of people are sufficiently served by CEXs. Granted, the whole idea of CEXs goes contrary to what crypto was born for in the first place. But hoping that humanity does a good job of anything, let alone safekeeping their seed phrases is a sure way to get disappointed.

I've seen it plenty of times since I took part in this market. I was there when Bitcoinica went down and when Mt. Gox went down. During Bitstamp and Bitfinex hack. When Quadriga went down. Were you? Every single time people like you showed up playing the benefit of the doubt card, which basically amounts to trick people into not taking action and get out of those house of cards early on. The only exchange that has left some credibility is Bitstamp. There are plenty of signs that HTX and Poloniex were running fractional reserve schemes for years. Them being "hacked" is the standard playbook of how to exit your failing CEX business gracefully. Can't you see the writing on the wall. Bitcoin/crypto was meant to be a replacement of third parties because NO third party ever can be trusted. And for better or worse this space seems to get rid of those entities over time. That doesn't mean it is not profitable for those who know how to dupe the masses and make it worth their investment at least for some time.
Monthly dca BTC and ETH, earning passive income on them (won't say the name because people here don't tolerate it when u mention CEX), small amounts on interesting altcoins (50-100$) and if it flips change to ETH and BTC, day-trading when there is volatility. That's it basically
>That’s why I have a single address for BTC coming from exchanges. It still is the same issue. If you made 400 transfers to that one single address and you want to move the total, your transaction will still be the size of 400 transfers. If you want to avoid this issue, you need to make less on chain transactions, meaning you can make small transactions on a CEX (which is done off chain), then make one to your hardware wallet on a threshold you decide on. Or just make fewer transactions directly, and spend 1000 at a time instead of 5 x 200 for example. Less transactions = less fees, both now and later, when you want to combine those many transactions into one.
You are facing one issue now, but I guarantee you will be facing a much bigger one once your coins are in your wallet, and you want to transfer that out. Say you bought a total of 1 BTC in 400 transactions. You paid fees on every one of those transactions, which is your current worry here. The issue you will face is you dont actually have "1 BTC"; you have 400 transactions that totals 1BTC. When you want to transfer that BTC, that one transaction will be the combined size of 400 transactions. Basically, you will have to pay fees for those 400 transactions again. The problem is not how much you move, but how many transactions you make. Basically, if you want bitcoin on chain, you cant use small values or it will kill you in fees. And there is no way to solve this as long as you want your BTC on chain. There is no in between, there is no "closer", either you are on chain, or you arent. If you want to do small transactions, do them on a CEX or fees will ruin you, and there is nothing you can do about this.
The issue is you are making lots of transactions with that "100/200$ DCA" . This is unfortunate but thats a BTC issue, not a CEX issue. You dont want to make many small transactions into one with BTC. This is not seen on a CEX because those transfers dont happen on chain. Basically the exchange has BTC onchain, and a database saying account X has some BTC and account Y has some other, and account X sells some to account Y; but no on chain transfer happens, so fees are minimal.
AML is coming for us all. And yes, I see other comments here re Monero etc but the bottom line is that they will eventually force all the banks to comply. It's already happening in the UK - there are few on/off ramp services left. Deal with a CEX, deal through a broker but you cannot deal with anonymous people. It's fine to transact purely in crypto but try buy with fiat or cash out and you are blocked by the banks.
Well polygon has low fees in general so ya it would track that any transactions made with the wallet should have low fees. It wouldn't be any lower than from a hardware wallet though, all depends on the transaction and the network. Also > monthly subscription that makes it so I don't have to pay fees I think that means you just pay your fees a month at a time. And it goes straight to your CEX instead of the validator. Make sure you run the math on that and you're not getting a raw deal.
Jesus man. Nice. Swap for stables. Pay your taxes and then get it into self custody. OR, if you believe in the tech transfer to a cold wallet and make a decision later. Keep in mind Gemini is going to report the rewards so you have short term capital gains on a CEX that is 100% recorded.
True, but imagine if we stopped using any company that has been sued for XYZ reason we would all starve to death. I agree precautions should be taken, but to simply bug out because of a lawsuit is silly. It’s suspicious and not a fact, and still yet to be proven. On top of that, another CEX got the same damn lawsuit which is funny in itself. Again the concern is legit but these precautions should have already been in place not now because of some dubious claims.
you're asking two queries and confusing them both. you're asking about BITCOIN but then your reasoning for why there may be more BITCOIN in circulating than stated (which is verifiable and the entire purpose of POW and Blocks, keeping an immutable ledger globally with millions of co-verified copies)... with people selling fake Bitcoin on CEX and CFDs and shit. lol
