It also makes the NYSDFS the first regulatory agency in the world to supervise Zcash, reaffirming their position as the leading financial regulator in the area of digital assets.

Universa’s amazing flash SPIKE yesterday

Universa is a Russian ICO that has trading going live already on Cobinhood and HitBTC. The latest price range of Universa (UTNP) has been about 350 – 500 satoshi’s, about $0.4 – 0.5 cents. Yesterday I logged into my Cobinhood account and noticed all my UTNP sells had vanished, so after investigating I learned that Universa had a flashspike! It rose to 5000 satoshi’s for a minute on Cobinhood (about $0.50!!!)

So guys, it went from 0.00000400 to 0.00005000!!!

over 10x gains with Universa for some of us!

HUGE gains were made to myself personally and anyone else who set very high limit sell orders for Universa on Cobinhood. These situations are hard to plan for, but it’s a sure reminder to always have your limit orders “in order” always!

Here is Coinmarketcap screenprint of Universa, here you can see huge spike, but it doesn’t show the 10x spike that actually did happen in Cobinhood.

Beware scammers posing as HitBTC reps

Scammers using HitBTC representations are rigorously aiming to scam anyone they can. So far I know they’ve been contacting members of the HitBTC forums.

They have ICQ accounts using the real HitBTC logos as their avatars. (Scammer ICQ: 723627901)
They even have the domain HitBTC.biz and send emails from support@hitbtc.biz (scammer email) as real .com reps

.

As you can see, the user “Death-Note” is most likely part of the scam.

HitBTC support replies:

Dear traders! HitBTC.biz are scammers, do not give them your personal information. HitBTC.com is the only right address. Follow basic internet security measures: don’t visit unknown suspicious links, check your PC for malware on a regular basis, and everything will be fine.

Another way they are phishing for our personal informations is through ICQ. I’ve been contacted via ICQ by someone who claims to be part of the HitBTC team. To confirm about this I asked the HitBTC team in a thread, posted below:

.

Dear @TalkBitcoinsCom HitBTC support team has no ICQ support service. We strongly recommend you to not talk to these people. Don’t visit unknown suspicious links, check your PC for malware on a regular basis, and everything will be fine.

As you can see, another confirmed scamming or phishing attempt.

We all need to beware, these scammers are rigorously attempting to steal anything they can from you, information, money, crypto, ANYTHING.

Preparing for Bitcoin Private fork (BTCP)

Bitcoin Private fork is coming Feb 28, 2018. Each Bitcoin (BTC) holder and Zclassic (ZCL) holder will receive 1:1 Bitcoin Private (BTCP). So you better get prepared if you plan on claiming your forked coin.

Here is what we have so far:

KuCoin has announced support for the BTCP fork. KuCoin is a fairly new exchange and an active supporter of many Bitcoin forks. They have given users BTCP already, opened markets for a few days, but now they say they will not support trading of BTCP anymore.

TradeSatoshi has announced support for it.

Nanex.co Just added BTCP/NANO trading pairs today.

Binance, BitcoinPrivate announced on Twitter they have submitted application at Binance to get listed. A rep from Binance told me “Right now not support”. So make your own decisions.

HitBTC has announced they’ll be listing BitcoinPrivate for trading, but no confirmation about distributing BTCP coins to BTC holders.

Bittrex, many people seem to believe Bittrex will be supporting the fork since they do have both BTC & ZCL pairs there. Bittrex announced they’ll help ZCL holders get their BTCP but they will not be crediting to BTC holders

There have been no other announcements regarding any other exchanges that I’m aware of.

Find more information on their website BTCprivate or Twitter page here.

How early (or late) did you get in on Bitcoins?

Bitcoins were first mentioned to me in early December 2012 when the price was around $13.49 US dollars per 1 BTC. I thought it was a pretty nice concept, having an online digital currency and all. I was totally interested to investing into Bitcoins back then.

First thing I did was created an MTGox.com account. I uploaded what I thought was the proper documentations and put in an order for $8100 worth of Bitcoins.

My MtGox attempt at Buying BTC in December 2012

My MtGox attempt at Buying BTC in December 2012

My account verification was denied, and so was my purchase, which now looking back on it was a HUGE disappointment. Buying $8100 worth of BTC at $13.49 each is about 600 BTC, which at this current moment, at $65 rate would make that $8k USD worth $43,333 USD. Wow what a disappointment! And now 7 account verification denials later from MtGox I finally decided to give up on that Bitcoin trading website.

On February 25th I did open a Coinbase.com account. I was able to purchase the first of my BTC there. Their accounts are approved much easier than MtGox. They have a bank verification system the same like Paypal, they put small deposits into your bank account and you must verify by naming those amounts, usually about 5-20 cents.

Coinbase is nice, but you have very small limitations. For your first month you are limited to “10 BTC daily buy limit, and 100 BTC daily sell limit.” Supposedly this will be upgraded to 100 BTC daily buy limit and 300 BTC sell limit after you’ve had an account for 30+ days. Coinbase charges a 1% fee on all buys and sells.

I would like to know your stories, on how you first got into Bitcoins. Was it difficult? Which site did you go through? Everything went smooth and you came out a happy camper or do you have a Bitcoin horror story like I do?
