  Bitstamp KYC...are you kidding me??
Posted by: Carsten - Yesterday, 09:43 AM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (3)

I'm a happy customer at Bitstamp. Yesterday I was met by their new KYC saying:

"Please help us better understand your intended Bitstamp account usage by providing the information requested below, as a part of our AML/CTF regulatory obligations. Make sure the submitted information is correct and up to date, as this may result in faster processing of your transactions."

They are asking for highly private information. I thought they were kidding. 

Your current occupation:
Your annual income:
Your net worth: 
Your source of funds:
Your annual deposit estimation:
Your annual transaction number estimation:


I wrote them this:


Hi

I have been here for many years now and is happy with your service. Today I see the KYC form that is asking quite personal questions. Annual income, net worth etc. That is really too much. It's none of your business to say it straight out. Please remove those personal questions.

Dear Carsten,

Please note that we are required by our internal policies to establish the nature of your relationship with Bitstamp and source of funds (fiat and/ or crypto).

Please be advised that our procedures are a manifestation of Bitstamp's proactive approach towards compliance and transparency.

The questionnaire is standard and serves for anti-fraud and anti-money laundering purposes which represent a considerable risk when dealing with Bitcoin technology.

For more information, please see: 
https://www.bitstamp.net/terms-of-use/
https://www.bitstamp.net/privacy-policy/
https://www.bitstamp.net/aml-policy/

Best regards,
Marko F.


As can bee seen users are pissed.  https://ambcrypto.com/bitstamp-rolls-kyc...rustrated/

This is a very bad development.

  3rd GEN Blockchain (Blockchain 3.0)
Posted by: Hugues - Yesterday, 05:22 AM - Forum: Bitcoin and Altcoin - Replies (3)

Bitcoin and many other cryptocurrencies don’t serve many of the purposes at one place together.
What purposes?
High Scalability

  • Interoperability
  • Sustainability
  • Privacy
  • Governance
Bitcoin is one of the many 1st gen cryptos (blockchain 1.0), Ethereum is a 2nd gen crypto (blockchain 2.0). None of them incorporates all the 4 properties as aforementioned.
That’s why 3rd generational blockchains are slowly breaking the dawn with their innovative ways to incorporate these properties so that they can adapt to the ever-changing demands of this space.


Blockchain 3.0


Directed Acyclic Graph; DAG based cryptos.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/shermanlee/...a9b110180b


https://youtu.be/LtWUJtnQbKs


A few 3rd gen cryptos:
  • Cardano
  • IOTA
  • EOS
  • Byteball
  • Railblocks
  • Aion

Needless to say, change is the only thing permanent in the world.
That’s why we will have the 3rd generation blockchains coming more to the picture in 2018 as all of them try to solve the problems of last two generations in their unique ways.
Having said that, the blockchain one that scales fast will see the break-even point in the market plus the speculation surrounding it can take it to the moon.
But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have space for few good blockchain 3.0s to co-exist together in this space.

  Frequent Flyer Miles and Points
Posted by: cta102 - Yesterday, 01:23 AM - Forum: Uncategorized - Replies (1)

Hey guys, I have been a miles and points junkie for many years since these programs began in early 1980s.

If you are not familiar with free trips and hotel stays (do you live on Mars?), the Internet has now provided many blogs to alert you to various deals.

I have had many free flights from home (USA) to Europe and Asia as well as free hotel stays for many nights.

In the last 2 years, as I am nearing retirement, I have gone big time into this hobby of amassing tons of miles and points so I will have lots of opportunity to travel after retirement when income is less and ability to spend on credit cards (that I use exclusively) is reduced as no longer will I have a business.

Those of you living in USA have best opportunities as the big banks and AMEX have huge sign up bonuses for credit cards to get you started. From what I have seen on the blogs, other countries do not have so much opportunity. I have gotten 2 dozen new credit cards in past 2 years for the sign-up bonuses and now maxed out until next year.

If interested..start here on this blog One Mile At a Time. https://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/

They have numerous articles of all sorts of deals and reference other blogs that you can sign up for alerts. They have articles about all airlines in the world and hotel chains, so it is not exclusively a USA based blog

Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile ..it is a business to learn just like crypto to maximize the opportunity

  Pornhub Partnership Ups Verge Cryptocurrency Price
Posted by: Carsten - 2018-04-19, 10:18 AM - Forum: Bitcoin and Altcoin - Replies (8)

Okay...it's porn. Still it's a good sign they will accept crypto as payment. It makes a lot of sense that porn users can pay with crypto to stay anonymous. It's fine as long as it's legal porn. I don't expect a huge site like pornhub have illegal material on their site.

How will this affect the price on Verge?
