Quadriga CX and My Gox were once considered a trusted exchange. There is a reason these exchanges are based in Singapore and the Bahamas. Any day whenever the CEO of Crypto.com, FTX, or Coinbase wants to cash the can halt all withdrawal and trades, then liquidate all accounts, shut down their exchanges, claim bankruptcy, cook their books, and leave all the account holders with nothing. That risk alone makes crypto worthless when their are FDIC insured banks and SIPC insured exchanges.

>“There is always the possibility that someone inside Coinbase could, wittingly or unwittingly, leak information to outsiders engaging in illegal activity,” Coinbase Chief Executive Brian Armstrong wrote last month. The exchange, he said, investigates employees that appear linked to front running and terminates them if they are found to have aided such trades. Newsletter Sign-up Crypto Field Guide Cut through the hype with WSJ's new crypto newsletter, launching this summer. SUBSCRIBE Paul Grewal, Coinbase’s chief legal officer, followed up with a blog post Thursday. The company has seen information about listings leak before announcements through traders detecting digital evidence of exchanges testing a token before a public announcement, he said. Coinbase has taken steps to mitigate that in addition to its efforts to prevent employee insider trading, he said. Wallets like these have caused debate in the crypto community over whether targeted buying of specific tokens ahead of listings on exchanges points to insider trading. The crypto markets are largely unregulated. In recent years, regulators have looked more closely at the market’s fairness for individual investors. The largest cryptocurrency bitcoin has fallen 24% in May, causing steep losses for individual investors across the market. Insider trading laws bar investors from trading stocks or commodities on material nonpublic information, such as knowledge of a coming listing or merger offer. Some lawyers say that existing criminal statutes and other regulations could be used to go after those trading cryptocurrencies with private information. But others in the cryptocurrency industry say a lack of case precedent specific to crypto insider trading has created uncertainty over whether and how regulators might seek to tackle it in the future. Argus CEO Owen Rapaport said that internal compliance policies in crypto can be undercut by a lack of clear regulatory guidelines, the libertarian ethos of many who work in the space and the lack of institutionalized norms against insider trading in crypto compared with those in traditional finance. “Firms have real challenges with making sure the code of ethics against insider trading—which almost every firm has—is actually followed rather than being an inert piece of paper,” Mr. Rapaport said. Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Gary Gensler said Monday that he saw similarities between the influx of individual investors into crypto markets and the stock boom of the 1920s that presaged the Great Depression, which led to the creation of the SEC and its mandate to protect investors.“The retail public had gotten deeply into the markets in the 1920s and we saw how that came out,” Mr. Gensler said. “Don’t let somebody say ‘Well, we don’t need to protect against fraud and manipulation.’ That’s where you lose trust in markets.” Spokespeople for the exchanges said that they have policies to ensure that their employees can’t trade off of sensitive information. A Binance spokeswoman said that employees have a 90-day hold on any investments they make and that leaders in the company are mandated to report any trading activity on a quarterly basis. “There is a longstanding process in place, including internal systems, that our security team follows to investigate and hold those accountable that have engaged in this type of behavior, immediate termination being minimal repercussion,” she said. FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried said in an email that the company explicitly bans employees from trading on or sharing information related to coming token listings and has a policy in place to prevent that. The trading highlighted in Argus’s analysis didn’t result from any substantive violations of company policy, Mr. Bankman-Fried said. >Write to Ben Foldy at ben.foldy@wsj.com and Caitlin Ostroff at caitlin.ostroff@wsj.com

Mentions:#FTX

>By Ben Foldy and Caitlin Ostroff May 21, 2022 5:30 am ET Save Print Text Public data suggests that several anonymous crypto investors profited from inside knowledge of when tokens would be listed on exchanges. Over six days last August, one crypto wallet amassed a stake of $360,000 worth of Gnosis coins, a token tied to an effort to build blockchain-based prediction markets. On the seventh day, Binance—the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by volume—said in a blog post that it would list Gnosis, allowing it to be traded among its users. Token listings add both liquidity and a stamp of legitimacy to the token, and often provide a boost to a token’s trading price. The price of Gnosis rose sharply, from around $300 to $410 within an hour. The value of Gnosis traded that day surged to more than seven times its seven-day average. Four minutes after Binance’s announcement, the wallet began selling down its stake, liquidating it entirely in just over four hours for slightly more than $500,000—netting a profit of about $140,000 and a return of roughly 40%, according to an analysis performed by Argus Inc., a firm that offers companies software to manage employee trading. The same wallet demonstrated similar patterns of buying tokens before their listings and selling quickly after with at least three other tokens. The crypto ecosystem is increasingly grappling with headaches that the world of traditional finance tackled decades ago. The collapse of a so-called stablecoin from its dollar peg earlier this month stemmed from crypto’s version of a bank run. How cryptocurrency exchanges prevent market-sensitive information from leaking has also become a growing topic of concern. The focus comes as regulators are raising questions about the market’s fairness for retail users, many of whom just booked major losses on steep declines in crypto assets. The wallet buying Gnosis was among 46 that Argus found that purchased a combined $17.3 million worth of tokens that were listed shortly after on Coinbase, COIN -1.88% Binance and FTX. The wallets’ owners can’t be determined through the public blockchain. Profits from sales of the tokens that were visible on the blockchain totaled more than $1.7 million. The true profits from the trades is likely significantly higher, however, as several chunks of the stakes were moved from the wallets into exchanges rather than traded directly for stablecoins or other currencies, Argus said. Argus focused only on wallets that exhibited repeated patterns of buying tokens in the run-up to a listing announcement and selling soon after. The analysis flagged trading activity from February 2021 through April of this year. The data was reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. Coinbase, Binance and FTX each said they had compliance policies prohibiting employees from trading on privileged information. The latter two said they reviewed the analysis and determined that the trading activity in Argus’s report didn’t violate their policies. Binance’s spokesperson also said none of the wallet addresses were linked to its employees. Coinbase said it conducts similar analyses as part of its attempts to ensure fairness. Coinbase executives have posted a series of blogs touching on the issue of front running.

Keep waiting and hoping for the Best since a guy on the FTX sub mentioned they had the same issue month ago and on the next day it mysteriously came back. For me didn’t happen yet unfortunately. I have a horror thinking about to trace back all the transactions from over a year of time and probably won’t be able to get the correct numbers ever again. Does anybody have similar issues since yesterday or an idea how to get my portfolio back? Thanks for reading this.

Hi guys, I'm using FTX not for the exchange but only its portfolio tracker since more than a year now, when it was still called Blockfolio. When I opened the app yesterday (not the first time of the day) my portfolio under 'track' had suddenly disappeared / reset to 0. Under settings -> profile my user is logged in and this token ID thing (whatever it's used for) is still the same. Did this happen to anybody here before?? Damn me to ever trust that piece of shit, which I regularly couldn't use to view or add transactions whenever their exchange experienced higher loads and big market moves ('Sorry, something went wrong' messages anyone?!). I didn't go for it yet because of hundreds of transaction I would have to transfer ...this now really fucks me up. What the hell ftx?!?!

I'm not going to read white paper of every shitcoin. But the biggest financial fraud brewing right now has to do with collateralized stablecoins without an actual audit. But because most of crypto doesn't trust Tether, the sights are on stock market traders. FTX already announced broker free stock trading with stablecoins as intermediary. This gets liquidity into stablecoins and if massively adopties, would mean stablecoins like Tether could potentially counterfeit upwards of 100 billion dollars. It would make Terra-Luna look like petty crime.

Kraken chooses to charge their customers 0.00002 BTC per bitcoin withdrawal. Coinbase Pro chooses to charge their customers a very small bitcoin withdrawal fee. Gemini chooses to give every customer 10 free bitcoin withdrawals per month and then charges them 0.001 BTC per bitcoin withdrawal for any more. Strike, Swan Bitcoin, and FTX don't charge their customers anything for bitcoin withdrawals.

The big crypto exchanges are insiders with Tether. They know it's fake, but everyone is making so much money. Coinbase, FTX, Binance, Kraken, etc. are making a profit from trading fees. The USDT is fake but the fees customers pay is real. Isn't in convenient how so many exchanges cease trading or have "maintenance" when crypto is having a huge crash? It happened when UST and LUNA crashed and USDT started losing peg a few days ago. That's the exchanges pulling the plug so the USDT con can keep going. Imagine you're a young tech whiz. You create a crypto exchange from the remains of some old one that died when Mt. Gox happened. Your exchange becomes one of the largest in the industry, and suddenly you become a billionaire by age 30. However, you know it's all bullshit. But if you reveal the con, your billions disappear overnight, and you're probably back to being a wagie in your cagie. You never intended to help facilitate a massive fraud, but now you're in so deep that you can't possibly unravel it. Your only real solution is to help the scam run longer and try to convert as much fake cash into real cash without triggering a collapse in the market. Hopefully you keep it running long enough so when it all collapses, you still exit a billionaire. This is probably the situation Sam Bankman-Fried is in. And I'm guessing CEOs at Binance, Coinbase, Kraken, Celsius, etc. are in a similar position. They can't just remove billions of dollars from the market and not expect it to crash their business. I like to remind people that Charles Ponzi didn't start his scheme to steal people's money. He legitimately thought it would work, then got in too deep when he spent too much money because he was over-confident in his investment strategy. If you have time, [watch this documentary on Ponzi.](https://youtu.be/w4waqVKanxA) Do Kwon made the exact same mistake. He offered 20% APY on Anchor and believed he could salvage the ponzi when enough of the crypto ecosystem adopted UST and LUNA. Now some of these people are just legitimately dishonest scammers. Justin Sun comes to mind. The top leadership of Tether is too.

Exchanges really are *the* thing if you time it correctly. Think about FTX and [SBF](https://www.forbes.com/profile/sam-bankman-fried/?sh=5d4da6f24449) and he started FTX like 1-2 years ago

Crypto commissions and income are massive. FTX are routing orders straight to NASDAQ directly so you wont have a big spread like a typical crypto CEX order book. With their tech stack, they can easily offer free trades without breaking sweat to acquire more users - as a top crypto exchange they dont have to worry about profits unlike traditional tradfi brokers (robing hood, fidelity etc) who dont have a hugely profitable income source other than their brokerage fees, $7 per trade and now payment-for-order flow that all zero fee brokerages use for revenue. If you are a hotel charging $1000 per night, you arent really fussed about offering a free welcome drink...

I don't think Tether is fueled by individual hodlers like us. We don't care if we use USDT, USD or just USD to buy Bitcoin. Tether is kept alive by big exchanges like FTX. They get sweet deals from Tether and in return basically make their users use USDT. Lots of these big exchanges are at least very questionable as well and if Tether finally collapses they likely go down with it. That's what a deal with the devil gives you: He'll make you fly higher than humanly possible, but when he goes down to hell, he'll make sure you'll come with him.

LINK and The Graph are crucial to the whole ecosystem as well. Chainlink also thrived in the last bear too. Keep that in mind. Can't see CRO surviving actually. I think they have lost trust with a lot of folks. FTT (FTX token) will be OK though when it comes to Exchanges.

> When the real market is 1/20th the size of the pretend market, that means that the actual trade volume of Bitcoin is only a few thousand dollars most of the time and is at best in the tens of thousands. Yeah this isnt the case, you also said a couple of years ago. The market is a lot bigger today than a couple of years ago. Binance isnt fake, FTX or CB isnt fake. There was a few exchanges mainly korean ones that washtraded previously and theres a reason why I didnt include them in the 20b number, as the number stated on coinmarketcap is closer to 80b. > Like today the high for a five minute interval was $1.4 million and the low was $1,905 for five minute intervals over the day. If we assume the market is 1/20th its real size, that would suggest a high of $70k/5 minutes and a low of $95/5 minutes. Not $95k, $95. This is also just pure bullshit, where do you get these numbers? Go look at binance btc/usdt pair and the volume is rarely under 1m/5min and thats just one trading pair on one exchange. > And it's not that hard to manipulate the market when you are just making up fake coins. There have been studies on this. They found that the price of bitcoin was heavily manipualted by Tether. The fake garbage scamcoins isnt the ones with massive market cap, you can say tether this or tether that. Tether market cap increasing doesnt mean its printed to prop up the price, last week tether market cap decreased by 7b or so because people redeem tether when the market isnt demanding the peg to stabilize. > The $20 billion volume is probably more like $1 billion. And a substantial portion of that is in fake money - assets that seem to have a lot more value than actual value. No, you can sell BTC right now and cash out. Without problem. As I said before you cant manipulate a market to keep a price up when people can sell at any time they want if there are no real buyers. The price would just crash.

Let's take this step by step Let's say I'm s CEX/ DEX and I'm like a miniature of the entire crypto space. I have ETH and maybe 3- 5 other more fiat liquid assets ( can change into fiat) on my platform. The rest 99%+ are majority traded in USDT. So 1. ~11% fiat 2. ~9% other stable coins 3.~ 80% USDT ( e.g Binance is mainly USDT) I see that USDT is about to go tits up do decide to switch to USDC. I've only got 3 options: 1) Buy USDC outright with fiat and hopefully convince 80% of users to switch to it. Note there are also USDT leveraged positions. Which would automatically make this impossible but let's say you can. However this would essentially be a cash injection for free on my part. I would be spending billions of my money to convert USDT into USDC. Plus making all my USDT worthless. So if I had $1 billion of USDT I would lose that then $1 billion in fiat to buy the USDC that I essentially gave away 2) I sell all my USDT into USDC. If I'm a small player this could work. I won't effect the market much. But if I have billions as Binance, FTX and several liquidity pools well I'm fucked. The moment I start selling into the market the price of USDT will start falling from over supply. This could trigger a collapse and my USDT becomes worthless. Plus as stated in (1) leveraged positions and integrated DEFI would lead to a liquidation cascade 3) I can try go and "redeem" all my USDT at Tether for fiat to buy USDC at 1:1. This could actully work but unfortunately most likely USDT doesn't have the fiat liquidity and they can't pay me back. Thus I also trigger a crash. Or once again if I'm a small player it won't have an effect There is no way 80% of all the liquidity in crypto can safely be switched to USDC. Even if it was by one party. Now we are talking about hundreds of individual CEXs and DEFI projects each holding massive amounts of USDT or USDT collateralized contracts Maybe over 1 to 3 years but over a couple of months is just insane. USDT can pop anytime and a open switch by any major player such as in (2) would result in a mass sell off and a run for the door

...shorting a stablecoin that has only fallen off its peg by a cent in the last month? FTX must be frothing at the mouth for idiots like this. Basically free money lol.

tldr; Despite nearly $11 million in donations from FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried, Democratic House candidate Carrick Flynn lost his Oregon primary race. Flynn conceded to state Rep. Andrea Salinas, who is looking to become Oregon’s first Hispanic woman in Congress. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article. As always, DYOR.*

I would think that the major exchanges would bail out tether. Binance and FTX mostly. Every product they have is linked to tether. After the luna shit, I’m sure the major players have their ears perked up and plans in place.. I would think and hope so anyways

> Many exchanges (Binance, FTX, KuCoin) use USDT for pairing to cryptos (BTCUSDT, ETHUSDT, ADAUSDT). What's the reason for them not switching to USDC? Because USDC can be seized by the US Govt. Just look at the Russian seized assets by the west. If they don't like you they will steal from you. And you can bet if you're on the naughty list your USDC will be seized too. USDT isn't under US Govt control hence why many exchanges will continue to use it.

What specific twitters/telegrams should I follow to be able to react quickly if there was ever a depeg on DAI or if FTX earn or Gemini Earn was unsound/going to have a bank run? Don't think this will ever happen but I want to be able to act swiftly. Any other notifications I should setup? Do I need to put these apps on my phone I'm guessing?

tldr; A group called Protect Our Future PAC spent more than $11 million to support a candidate in Oregon’s newly created Sixth District in the US House of Representatives. The candidate, Carrick Flynn, is a 35-year-old who grew up in the area but hadn’t lived there in a number of years and had demonstrated little previous interest in electoral politics. The PAC is predominantly funded by FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article. As always, DYOR.*

You don't need to be a programmer, you can short practically everything on FTX
