Has the epicenter of Bitfenix's fraud been hiding in plain sight this entire time?

Bear with me(no pun intended):
Let's look at the name "BitFenix". From what we all know, the word "Bit" in the context of crypto can be robustly substituted for the word "Butt".
A cursory wikipedia search for "Fenix" yields the result that Fenix is the Spanish word for "Phoenix", which refers either to a perpetually reincarnated flame bird mythological creature, or the capitol city of Arizona.
So far we have:
Bit = Butt
Fenix = Phoenix
and together: Bitfenix = "Butt Phoenix"
If you ask any Arizonan what the significance of "Butt Phoenix" is, they will almost certainly tell you: "Chandler, AZ", a sub-city of the Phoenix metro area well-known for it's characteristically stiff chemical smell of burning plastic wafting throughout the air.
Chandler AZ was recently uncovered by the feds to be the epicenter of Reggie Fowler's fraudulent practices.
In this sense, the source of the fraud was incorporated in the name from the very beginning:
Bitfenix = Butt Phoenix = Chandler, AZ
Case solved.

How and why exchanges are manipulating the price in order to capitalize on the new market dynamics

The current market seems to be largely driven not by organic buying and selling, but by exchange driven manipulation of the spot market to exploit the current dynamics of leverage trading. We just saw it again now as they liquidated 3K longs but you can see this pattern of clear manipulation over and over in the last few weeks .
We have seen several forces set an incentive for exchanges to do this:
Some exchanges like Gemini have reacted to all of this by increasing their trading fees by 400%. Meanwhile Bitfinex specifically seems to be using its hefty weight to manipulate the price in order to capitalize on the record number of people using margin to bet.
Both longs and shorts are bets on the price moving up or down and they have a "liquidation price" at which they get liquidated by the exchange, essentially the exchange gets the entire stack they bet with and extracts a high market fee multiplied by the leverage. Since the exchanges know the characteristics of the outstanding shorts/longs, and since volume is low after these pumps or dumps leading to sideways drift, they can essentially engineer movements in price that create income in terms of liquidations. When there are lots of overleveraged shorts, an exchange can pump the price with bots briefly and collect the short position. Same with longs but in reverse, a quick burst of selling pressure.
You can see this in the most recent pumps too on Bitfinex, where 1K buy orders appear out of nowhere after long sideways movement only to be followed by either sideway movement or slow bleed on pathetic volume:
https://i.imgur.com/3YaWVBI.png
https://i.imgur.com/pvpcd7Z.png
Take a look at the most recent pump up to 7K, it instantanously liquidated about 700 short positions:
https://i.imgur.com/3sCLEB8.png
Now this last dump was a laddered 12.5K sell order on Bitfinex that liquidated around 3K long contracts
https://i.imgur.com/znYyUT8.png
Bitfinex tends to be where the big money traders move (their minimum deposit is 10K) so even if each long position was only 0.5 BTC on average they exchange would make a ton of money. If you look at the BitmexRekt twitter feed that shows a running list of Bitmex liquidations with humorous commetary, you will see many >$1 million dollar positions being liquidated during these moves.
This is what all the "Bart" formations we have seen stem from. Its not George Soros pumping Bitcoin for shits and giggles, nor is it the nebolous "whales". They have no incentive to try and pull off PnDs now that it only leads to either sideways movement or decline after the pump. A PnD only works if the delta between the top of the pump end point and dump initiation point is positive, while now it seems to be followed by sideways movement. Those who do want to bet on further upward movements seem to be doing it off the spot market, using margin with futures and perpetuity swaps on Bitmex. This makes the low volume spot market ripe for manipulation, exchanges like Bitfinex and Bitmex have every incentive right now to manipulate the price.
Looking back it seems almost inevitable that this would have happened, that traders would try to replicate the gains they saw by buying and selling on the spot market a few months ago by using increased leverage and derivatives. In December and January there were days where your holdings would increase by at least 20% no matter what you bought. Once you experience those 20% daily gains you don't want to go back to a market where it slowly bleeds down a few percent every week, so people jumped in on high leverage short positions to multiply their profit on those single percent moves down.
For the small time investor there really isn't much you can do to stop this. This is what being part of an unregulated market means, it means that things like wash trading and long/short liquidation hunting is allowed.
All you can really do if you're a trader is look at the current ratio of longs vs shorts on Bitfinex and be aware that once short contracts become too high its possible that an exchange may pump the price to profit on it, while if the longs become too dominant we may see a dump.
Edit: Bitfinex, not Bitfenix.

I've had enough of my rx 480 screwing me over... upgrading to a GTX 1060 or perhaps something else?

Build Help/Ready:

After two full days of attempting to fix my PC, I've come to the seeming conclusion that it's a hardware problem. Repeated and consistent BSODs, typically atikmpag.sys, though sometimes IRQL or other video related ones are occuring. It's not software - three times I've safe-mode DDU clean uninstalled AMD drivers and reinstalled the drivers. I even did a clean windows install. It's not the motherboard or CPU - the machine runs fine with the graphics card removed. It's not the cable or monitor - BSODs occur on every monitor I try, HDMI, VGA and DVI. It's not the registry - I increased tdrdelay to 8 seconds and then 16 seconds and it still occurs. It's probably not the power supply - I've undervolted and underclocked the card only to experience BSODs still.
As I narrow it down forum post by forum post, I've come to the conclusion: the rx480 is a POS. I guess it's time to bite the bullet and hop over to Nvidia's well supported 1060s, which since the bitcoin crash are more affordable than ever.
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
Gaming and browsing, no weird video/streaming shit. Here's the games I (might) play, graded in general by demand on the GPU:
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, framerate, game settings)
60fps minimum on the games I play. As you can see only a few of these games are particularly demanding (the last few), and I'm perfectly comfortable playing on low/medium settings to achieve 60fps for that. The rx 480 in the early part of its life could sometimes manage these (and to be sure, it was also dependent on the rather shitty optimisation of PUBG/GTA), but can no way achieve them now. So just having that consistency is enough for me.
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
Already have the pieces. No more than £250, but I see 1060s available for around £140. Therefore it's more about value for money and long-term considerations than the money itself right now.

Provide any additional details you wish below.
So the question I've really got is: based on the info provided so far (500W power supply, decent RAM, decent processor, somewhat limited gaming), should I play it safe with the GTX 1060? Or is there something more suitable for me, like a 1080TI? I'm not familiar with the Nvidia series, so any help is greatly welcome.
Thanks.

Educational: Where is all this Tether going?

Everyone knows tether Granted (Printed out of thin air) 550 million tether in the past few days.
To start Deciphering the Blockchain is Extremely difficult, But there's also this Immutable public ledger. So Technically anyone can look Exactly where everything went, if they have the time.
For clarity: Bitfinex owns teather USDT (But they didn't want anyone to know this Originally). This is a fact DYOR If You need to.
Now Here is the public list of every exchanges wallet Of tether. To be clear This wallet is holding Their USER's Tether. I'm assuming the exchanges Make sure to Never hold more tethered than they need to themselves. So it's the user's risk, and NOT the exchange (for the most part).
https://wallet.tether.to/richlist
http://omniexplorer.info/lookupadd.aspx?address=1KYiKJEfdJtap9QX2v9BXJMpz2SfU4pgZw
As you can see Bitfinex only has 32 million (or what's left at the time you're reading this) In their public tether wallet. Well that's kind of odd they just printed 550 million. So where did the tether go?
Here is Teather's Granting Addresses: http://omniexplorer.info/lookupadd.aspx?address=1NTMakcgVwQpMdGxRQnFKyb3G1FAJysSfz
They most recently granted (Printed out of thin air) 100 million usdt at 1/20/2018 1:56:59 AM, but it was actually issued ( sent and beginning to be spent) 1/21/2018 9:47:48 AM.
If you follow some of the transactions they go into a temporary wallet and then bitfinex public tether wallet. Only 1 hop from Grant Blockchain address into the bitfinex wallet. Some of the transactions do go to other exchanges. Now this is where it's way too difficult and time consuming for me personally to decipher the blockchain.
Maybe it went other exchanges sure maybe. However, possibly a lot of that tether was spent on bitcoin by bitfinex owned wallets and/or other unknown actors somehow involved.
Regardless, 68+ million USDT left the wallet in 24 hours. It seems like bitfinex should have a lot more than 32 million (or what's left at the time you're reading this) in their public wallet.
Wait what about the other 450 million in the past 6 days? That should be super concerning, especially considering the dozens of other red flags surrounding tethebitfinex.
Please add to or correct me if I'm wrong anywhere.
Ps: nowShady is a bitfenix and tether bot/shill spreading fake sentiment that they are safe https://imgur.com/a/Ezy7w
Edit: Only 15 million In this wallet now. And shrinking.
http://omniexplorer.info/lookupadd.aspx?address=1KYiKJEfdJtap9QX2v9BXJMpz2SfU4pgZw
some sends are in the millions now: 1273622.95

GPU longevity: 1070 vs. 1080ti?

Build Help:

Hello buildapc, the title serves as my main question. This is my first attempt at building a pc, and hearing that GPU prices have increased I want to make sure that I am buying the most cost-effective one.
My sole purpose in building this pc is for gaming and entertainment. I have $2000 budgeted for this and I want a PC which lasts for as long as possible. Almost all the parts have been bought except the GPU.
Initially I was planning to buy an EVGA 1070 SC since the 1080ti was a bit... costly, but a recent conversation with my friend has me hesitating. He has already built his own pc and keeps track of computer parts far more extensively than I do. He strongly suggests that I get a 1080ti for several reasons:
In terms of how long I'm willing to keep the pc, I've been willing to play games at the lowest graphical quality and 30fps for the last 8 years. At times even worse than that. My friends (read: plural, not just the other pc builder) think it's because I haven't been exposed and a good gaming desktop will change my mind. I decided to accept their advice, but I still want to make the pc last for as long as it can. I plan to keep it all the way until the pc can only run games at, once again, lowest quality 30fps. At which point I plan to begin overclocking to squeeze out the last bits of value.
So now I'm leaning towards buying a 1080ti; but in case my friend had incorrect information what do you all think? How long would you predict the 1080ti will last vs the 1070? Alternatively, if I buy a normal 1080 as a compromise, is that even a smart thing to do?
A Few Extra Questions
I will also admit that I might have my priorities all backwards. Even if a 1080ti could last that long, would you predict the GPU will "break" or essentially stop working due to age? I've read that there's no telling when a GPU will break. If mine breaks after 20 days... so will my heart. I live in a Mediterranean climate as well, which I understand is not the best, but is there anything I can do on my end to prolong its life? And if you say liquid cooling, I'd need a strong argument as to why. Because:
Lastly, I do care about fan noise if you have any input concerning that.
Thanks.

The team needs your help!

So, in chatting with the devteam on twitter it seems like our next big obstacle is getting added to some more exchanges, so, I wrote a quick how-to guide on exactly that. I've managed to find an article that actually gives some good info on instructions/suggestions on how to do this. The best way, would likely just be by emailing the exchange, and I'll type up a quick suggestion as to what to say. However, feel free to change the message so it's not just looking like a bunch of copy-paste spam from bots or something. I've also added a chart of major exchanges along with their contact emails for easy copy-pasting into your emails.

* = unable to find a proper email, so the one listed may be a media contact or something until we find the correct one.
** = Community cannot help here, listing requires the devteam to contact the exchange officially.
Below I'll include a brief demo of what we are trying to get across in the email, feel free to just copy and paste this but tweaking or writing your own is encouraged as we want the teams to actually read our messages, not just delete them as spam.
Hello,
I just thought I would write to you concerning a coin that you currently do not have listed on your exchange, TheHempCoin (THC). THC has been around for years, originally starting back in November of 2014, however, it only really started to take off this November thanks to the legalisation in California and the upcoming news from Canada and Mexico alike. In addition, over the past few months, the development team have been releasing quite a few updates and are currently looking at doing a rebrand along with a hardfork.
Unlike the rest of these so-called "Potcoins" the team here intend to target the agricultural market as a whole, not just limiting themselves to Marijuana and the associated industry meaning a far larger market. Currently the only place to trade this coin is on Bittrex but seeing that they are not accepting new members currently, there has been plenty of growth, however, there are also lots of people seeing this growth and wanting to buy in but being unable to, thanks to the exchange. Adding this coin to your exchange would likely boost your visitor count seeing that it would mean you would currently be the one-and-only place available to purchase THC.
In the past 2-3 months alone we have gone up about 1600% even with the decline in bitcoin, and we don't look to be stopping anytime soon. The devteam has confirmed that there will be a new website and whitepaper published very soon and all the links can be found on their twitter, which is where they are most active in the community. I will leave links to where you can contact the team below.
Lastly, I would like to thank you for taking the time to consider this proposal and I look forward to trading with you soon.

* - a non-official social platform created by the community
Sincerly,
Sign your own name/handle here
This should hopefully help us get listed on a few more exchanges and hopefully allow some of those who want to purchase some THC and get into it, actually do so!
One big thing we want to keep in mind: In doing this, we don't want to come off as entitled or that we are owed something. We also want to keep any price targets or anything completely out of this as that is regarded as a huge negative. As I said above, feel free to type up your own message, mine is just here as inspiration per-say, but try to keep it professional, we don't want to annoy them, we just want it to be evident that we have a serious demand here.
Also, just a reminder, I'm not part of the devteam, I just believe in their product and I'm trying to get their message out there. We see about 1000-2000 visitors daily so I figured even if 10% of us send out these emails, we can easily see 150 people trying to contact the exchanges and hopefully soon we can see another get added!
Lastly, if you have any suggestions or would like to add to the list here, just leave a comment and I'll do my best to get back to you ASAP. Thanks!
Oh, one more thing. I know I gave u/no1CryptoWhale a hard time concerning posts about "shilling" I still believe that we need to be careful in this endeavour but I'm also willing to admit when I'm wrong, we evidently do need to pitch in and help the devs. However, we need to be wary of the language and terms we use as this is a delicate matter and even industry, as we can see with BTC this week...

[QUESTION] Need help with GUI wallet and Fork info

Hi, i'm new to this.
I have bought Monero from Bitfenix and send them to my adress. My gui wallet isn't syncing for many days now ( went from 7000, to 70000 blocks remaining), and so i never got to see my moneros on my wallet. I've downloaded version 11 of the wallet but not having gui I dunno how to use it. Can you tell me how to use the non gui wallet so maybe I can send it to another easier wallet? Or just learn how to use those command wallets? I have the cli and rpc. Do I create a new wallet? It asks for a wallet name and I don't know what to do. =S
Also, a bit of info about the coming fork, anything I have to do? does it "double" like bitcoin and bitcoin cash? And so can you stay on monero and buy more monero with the new one?
Thanks very much =)

Will Bitcoin fall during the Super Bowl in 2019?——GoDapp

Will Bitcoin fall during the Super Bowl in 2019?——GoDapp
Encrypted currency is becoming more and more mainstream, it has become so mainstream, and even sports fans have noticed it and used cryptocurrencies to participate in the quiz of sports events, including one of the biggest sports events of the year: the Super Bowl. In particular, sports fans are considering betting on Bitcoin and whether it will rise or fall over the weekend. Let's take a look at the historical performance of Bitcoin and why betting on the 2019 Super Bowl Weekend may be the next hot thing.

https://preview.redd.it/kslxpy5nrvf21.png?width=527&format=png&auto=webp&s=34d6b54c2262db0f84af1aaa3a9291d60b0bee84
Bitcoin crashed in early 2018

Recall that in 2017, a lot of cryptocurrency prices rose together. The most notable growth was that Bitcoin reached a price of $17,783,06 on December 17, 2017. For many bitcoin communicators and supporters, this is considered an important step forward for cryptocurrencies. To understand why they think so, remember that Bitcoin has been a leader in the cryptocurrency market since its launch as the first cryptocurrency in 2009.

After the price soared, almost everyone who wanted to participate in Bitcoin picked up a buying spree. Unfortunately, this fanaticism and upward trend did not continue in 2018. In the month of 2018, the currency market value lost about $80 million. The strange thing is that this happens to happen in the Super Bowl time attachment. This may be a coincidence, but let us discuss and discuss this issue.

We must always consider the volatility of digital currencies. With this in mind, the other factors that led to the decline at the time were:
Facebook refuses to support ICO and cryptocurrency advertising
Subpoena against the two largest exchanges Bitfenix and Tether
Bank of America refused to support Bitcoin in February 2018

Among all four of these potential factors, Bank of America's refusal may be the most important factor. The time the Bank of America refused coincided with the Super Bowl weekend that took place in 2018. As a result of this news, the price fell more than $2,000 at the time. Such a sharp drop seems to indicate a potential correlation between the Super Bowl weekend and the bitcoin price.

Bitcoin performance in 2018

After the plunge in the first half of 2018, the price in the fall of 2018 seems to be stable at around $6,400 (and of course it has fallen once again in winter). At the same time, Ripple (XRP) and Ether rose sharply and became the world's second and third largest cryptocurrency. This means that other cryptocurrencies are moving forward; Bitcoin is still relatively stagnant. The price stability in the fall of 2018 still provides bitcoin investors with future growth and health of the currency. They are still interested in sticking to their coins.

How about the fate of Bitcoin during the Super Bowl in 2019?

Recall that during the last Super Bowl weekend, Bank of America refused to cooperate with Bitcoin. This is not a good sign for cryptocurrency holders when cryptocurrency holders consider using cryptocurrencies to purchase Super Bowl tickets.

Now, if we move fast into 2019, Bitcoin will have similar sentiments during the Super Bowl weekend. There may be reasons for this: past performance is a future indicator and an exciting trend, indicating that Sunday is the best time for cryptocurrency transactions.

What does this mean for ordinary people?

The simple answer is that they can not only bet their favorite team to win the Super Bowl, but also bet on whether Bitcoin will continue to fall during the Super Bowl weekend.

In general, the 2018 cryptocurrency is down. As we pointed out, Bitcoin's performance is not particularly good. And, with Ethereum dropping more than 90%, the performance of the altcoin is not particularly good. But it also provides a solution for betting on Bitcoin on online sports betting, which increases the value of the player's cryptocurrency and has a good chance.

Sports betting will always exist. However, there is now an additional opportunity. As sports betting revolutionizes into a more online digital environment, people can participate by adding betting on bitcoin.
