Gemini adding Zcash

Gemini announced they’re adding Zcash to their platform on May 19, 2018.

Gemini Is Now the World’s First Licensed Zcash Exchange!

We are excited to announce support for Zcash trading and custody. Starting on Saturday, May 19th at 9:30am EDT customers will be able to start depositing Zcash into their Gemini accounts. Trading will begin on Tuesday, May 22nd at 9:30am EDT.

We have been working closely with the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYSDFS) to obtain approval to offer Zcash trading and custody services to our customers as a New York trust company. Our approval makes Gemini the first licensed Zcash exchange in the world. 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. To learn more read our blog post.

Zcash pumped 30% today, probably due to this news. Litecoin is being added to Gemini next!

Another ZCL & BTC fork into Anonymous Bitcoin

There is another Zclassic & Bitcoin forking into Anonymous Bitcoin in September, 2018. (BTCA, ticker will be confirmed later).

The team behind Anonymous Bitcoin claimm to improve the fork situation, in comparison to the previous fork of ZCL & BTC into Bitcoin Private (BTCP). They plan to work with exchanges prior to launching, with confirmation about listings. This was one major problem that BTCP ran into.

OKex & Kucoin removing BCH traiding pairs

3/28/2018 – OKex announced the removal of BCH trading pairs:

We will close all the trading pairs in BCH market of Token Trading at 18:00 Mar 30, 2018 (Hong Kong time, UTC+8) due to inadequate liquidity. While BCH will still be available for trading in BTC, ETH and USDT markets (BCH/BTC, BCH/ETH, BCH/USDT).

Now as we head into the 2nd quarter we are making many different changes to the platform based on user feedback. Several of the markets will be streamlined. KCS, USDT, and NEO will eliminate several pairs each, and all BCH pairs will be removed.

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.

Cryptopia delisting InfiniteCoin (IFC)

“Status: Maintenance. 22nd January – IFC network was the victim of a 51% attack which resulted in the loss of some funds in Cryptopia’s IFC wallet. Unfortunately Cryptopia is unable to regulate or control a coins network. The wallet is now empty and IFC will be delisted ASAP.”

And sad to say, but their support has not been helpful with my attempts to withdraw my coins since 2 months ago

They have replied Feb 2, 2018:

“As you may know, IFC has been a target of a 51% attack and due this attack the majority of IFC coins were lost. We are now lifting the maintenance status to allow users to withdraw their coins.

Users are allowed to withdraw and will be based off first come first serve basis. We realise that this isn’t ideal, so please try and withdraw at your earliest convenience.

Once the wallet is empty, we will be delisting this coin.

As it is the Coin’s team who are responsible for ensuring their network is secure, any further Complaints and support requests should be directed towards the IFC team. You may be able to contact them via their website here: http://infinitecoin.com/ or https://twitter.com/infinitecoin?lang=en

We sincerely apologise for any losses that may have incurred due to this attack.

Kind Regards,
Cryptopia Support”

From what I read on their website this looks like an ICO based on Ethereum.

Bitcoin Z (BTCZ)
This is another ETH-based ICO using the name bitcoin to attract attention. Basically imo is branding theft.

Super Smart Bitcoin (SBTC) and BCX double forking day

Ok so today at bitcoin block height 498888 we had a double fork from Super Smart Bitcoin (SBTC) and BCX. SBTC 1:1 and BCX 1:10,000. I used the exchange Gate.io & Okex to get my forked coins, all went smooth, dumped everything quickly for bitcoin, as usual. SBTC has been ranging from around $105 – $300 today, while BCX has been ranging around $0.016 – $0.03.

See the Bitcointalk thread here.

BCX (BCX)

As usual most of the Chinese bitcoin exchanges were supporting these forked coins. I participated in using Gate.io, Okex, and Bitfinex. Gate & Okex distributed all tokens asap while Bitfinex still waiting, will post results later. Binance mentions they maybe give SBTC eventually.
