Green Bitcoin Mining Centers To Be Launched In Paraguay By Bitfury
Mining giant Bitfury and Commons Foundation, a South Korean R&D firm have announced that they are launching a network of new bitcoin mining operations in the South American nation of Paraguay. Announced last week Thursday, Bitfury stated that a number of new mining centres are to be created using their BlockBox AC bitcoin mining devices. Notably, the mining rigs are to be powered by two major hydroelectric powers plants namely Itaipu Dam and Yacyreta Dam. This new partnership forms part of the Commons Foundation?s Golden Goose project. The government of Paraguay backs this initiative for the sole purpose of establishing the region as the largest crypto mining centre in the world. This endeavour is possible due to the country?s abundant supply of clean and affordable electricity. This data was first seen by us on February 06, 2019 1:16 AM.

Bitfinex releases new Python API client + tutorial
We received really good feedback with our original NodeJS client and a lot of people requested a port to Python so they can continue to create advanced strategies on the Bitfinex platform in a language that is extremely friendly to data analytics. The team at Bitfinex have been working on the bitfinex-api-py repo which can be found here: github.com/bitfinexcom/bitfinex-api-py. The client is designed to make it easy to interact with both the REST and websocket interface. The client handles all of the nasty parts that are associated with websockets such as subscriptions, authentication, confirmation callbacks and reconnecting when the connection is intermittent. The REST interface is as easy as ever to use, it exposes function calls such as get_active_orders() and then handles all of the authentication for you.

Bitfinex introduces margin trading for Tether - The Block
Bitfinex announced Friday that it will open margin trading for USDT/USD pair "improving [their] stablecoin offering in line with market evolution and consumer demand." Bitfinex said that the addition of margin trading allows for more efficient price discovery but it will also allow traders "to hedge the exposure taken on stablecoins." Tether will also be available as collateral for margin positions. In late November, Tether reopened direct redemption on Tether's website while Bitfinex added USDT/USD pair for the first time. In early December, Bitfinex added USDC, TrueUSD, Paxos, and Gemini dollar. The company said that there are plans in place to introduce margin trading for other major stablecoins "when sufficient liquidity is reached" as part of the commitment to providing a coin agnostic platform.

Bitfinex suspends all fiat deposits - The Block
According to The Block's sources, Bitfinex has paused all USD deposits and "expects the situation to normalize within a week". In response to broad speculation around the company's banking relationships and financial stability last weekend, the company had issued a press release stating: "Bitfinex is not insolvent." The Block exclusively reported on Saturday that Bitfinex was banking with HSBC through a private account of Global Trading Solutions. Due to the nature of the private account, it was not clear whether HSBC is aware that Bitfinex was banking with the firm. Now it appears that the private account is no longer functional. Bitfinex currently has no active method of deposits as all USD, EUR, JPY and GBP deposits are paused. This information was retrieved by us on January 08, 2019 9:47 PM.

The lending rate of Bitcoin Cash soars on Bitfinex - The Block
Just three days prior to the hard fork, Bitcoin Cash currently has the highest flash return rate out of all supported currencies. Currently, Bitcoin Cash's flash return rate hovers around 0.54% while the maximum rate on Bitfinex of 0.75% has already been reached a few times over the weekend. The flash return rate is the average of all fixed-rate positions, of all terms, weighted by their amount. It is basically the average daily rate on funding that allows traders to adjust the rates automatically. Bitfinex announced on Sunday that it will fully support the upcoming Bitcoin Cash hard fork and said that "at the time of writing, we do not believe that there is sufficient consensus to identify a clear winner in the Bitcoin Cash hard fork". During the Bitcoin fork on August 1, 2017, Bitfinex fully supported and credited all Bitcoin holders with the corresponding balances of Bitcoin Cash. Following the fork in 2017, all the borrowers had to repay Bitcoin Cash to pre-fork Bitcoin lenders. The Block has reached out to Bitfinex to clarify how it will handle the situation this year as it remains unclear. This information was first found by us on January 08, 2019 9:43 PM.

Bitfinex Reimburses Hacked Customers in Full
Bitfinex has announced that it has finally redeemed 100% of all issued and outstanding BFX tokens. Bitfinex has announced that it has redeemed all of the BFX tokens issued after the crippling hack last summer that removed almost 120.000 Bitcoins from customer?s wallets. In August 2016, the Hong Kong based exchange was hit by a massive hack, stripping customer?s accounts of 119,756 Bitcoins, or around 70 million dollars. The attack on the leading Bitcoin exchange shook the whole market, with Bitcoin prices dropping within hours. The exchange decided to distribute losses among all users, with a general loss percentage of 36%. BFX tokens were created after the hack, with an obligation to return the 36% of lost funds to all customers. This data was discovered by us on January 08, 2019 9:35 PM.

Alexa Ranking Shows GDAX Far Higher than Bitfinex, is Bitfinex Faking Trading Volumes
Bitfinex is currently handling $550 million in trading volumes per day, down from the highs of $2 billion per 24 hours, but still quite a substantial amount. Gdax, in contrast, soon to be known as Coinbase Pro, is currently handling $170 million despite being the main fiat gateway for the biggest cryptos. How can Bitfinex have so much volume is a question that has perplexed this space for some time. That is because they are currently under a banking blockade, they experienced a pretty huge hack two years ago, they allegedly had some millions seized, CFTC has fined them, and generally it is fair to say they do not have the best of reputations.

Warrant Canary of Bitfinex Employee Disappears, Rumors Swirl
The warrant canary of a respected coder and a Bitfinex employee, Chris Ellis, has suddenly disappeared today, raising questions regarding Bitfinex ? the biggest crypto exchange ? Tether, and potentially even law enforcement. A pseudo-anonymous individual going by the nickname of Bitfinexed noticed that a symbol used to indicate that someone has been silenced by simply no longer showing the symbol (warrant canary) was today no longer showing for Ellis. This symbol is often used to say, while not saying, that something has happened, gaining prominence after it came to light NSA uses gag orders.

Bitfinex Reveals a New Polish Bank Account Under a Panama Registered Company
Bitcoin?s biggest exchange, Bitfinex, which currently handles around half a billion in bitcoin trading volumes, has launched a euro trading pair after seemingly securing a bank account with Bank Spó?dzielczy w Skierniewicach which translates to Cooperative Bank in Skierniewice (pictured above). The tiny bank apparently had assets of only around $13 million in 2011, according to wikipedia, making profits of around $5 million. Sums Bitfinex handles in around one hour. As can be seen above, the account is under the name of CRYPTO SP. Z.O.O, with SP. Z.O.O standing for limited company. The account name is shared with CEX, a somewhat small bitcoin exchange. It remains unclear why they share an account name or what connection there may be between CEX and Bitfinex. This share was discovered by us on January 08, 2019 8:56 PM.

EOS Just Sent $120 Million Worth of Eth to Bitfinex
Conclusive evidence that EOS has sent 200,000 eth to Bitfinex has now been provided by the ethereum public blockchain. The EOS crowdsale smart contract has now finally been drained with just $1 million worth of eth left there at the time of writing. The year long ICO is to finally end at around 11PM London time, which translates to late afternoon in America and very early morning in Asia. Around that time or soon after the EOS blockchain is to launch, but rather than being busy with those preparations, the company behind EOS, block.one, is seemingly instead busy with moving millions in eth. That?s the EOS Crowdsale address. All of its money moves to an address tagged EOS owner, which starts with 9937. That address in turn currently has 737,000 eth ($432 million).

One Million ETH Traded on Bitfinex, Volumes Spike to Near All Time High
The daily trading candle on Bitfinex saw ethereum?s volumes spike to 932,000 eth this Monday, the second highest daily volume ever. Only last year?s 950,000 eth, on September 14th 2017, beats eth?s trading volumes yesterday. On that day, ethereum?s price reached a local bottom, making a higher low after eth?s price crash from $420 in June 2017 to $136 on July 16 2017. It then rose to about $400 on September 1st 2017, to crash again just under $200 when Bitfinex?s highest daily eth trading volumes were reached on September 14th.

Bitfinex and Tether Close New Accounts Registration, No Longer Accept New Users
One of crypto?s biggest exchange has suddenly temporarily closed new accounts registration without making any announcement to the effect. When you try to create a new account, you are met with a screen which basically says that you can not sign up. Their justification appears to be a desire to provide a better service to professional traders, however we have not heard any complaints about Bitfinex?s trading engine, while it appears there are complaints about almost everything else. They have said a number of times they are under DDoS and apparently one DDoS method used, and a seemingly unstated reason for suspending registration, was new accounts creation.

Class Action Against Bitfinex for Lost IOTA - General - IOTA Forum
I?ve had a huge amount of IOTA vanish when I tried to make a transfer from my Bitfinex wallet, and I?ve noticed other people having similar problems. I?ve tried recovering this by using a debt collector, but I?m still not getting much response. I was wondering what action others are taking and if anyone is suing them or started a class action against Bitfinex? Well, bitfinex doesn?t like people depositing or withdrawing IOTA because there are just too many complaints- I think it?s around 12 hours before the transfer shows up. Bitfinex has a warning page explaining that you must generate a new wallet code at bitfinex or the IOTA won?t show up at all. This post was discovered by us on January 06, 2019 11:19 PM.

Completely lost: how to buy IOTA on Bitfinex - Beginners - IOTA Forum
Hi all, so I have a (probably) very big noob question: I've been going in circles on the internet trying to figure out how to buy (M)IOTA. I know I have to use Bitfinex to trade and need a wallet to store purchased coins if I don't want to store them in Bitfinex. But what I really cannot figure out until now is a straightforward way to buy (M)IOTA directly with USD (or even EUR if possible at all)? So to be clear I don't want to use Bitcoins. I don't have any crypto coins so really I only want to use USD or EUR. Hope someone can point me in the right direction. Much obliged. You might have to go to coinspot.com.au which is an Australian exchange. It's very small but they take US customers. This data was first seen by us on January 06, 2019 11:11 PM.
