Let's ask Gemini to implement transaction batching and ask for an ETA

Mon, 01/15/2018 - 07:51

On Friday we achieved together a commitment from Coinbase to implement transaction batching. Although Gemini is even behind, it commited already to SegWit after new Bitcoin Core wallet is released. Still, I don't see any reason for any exchange for not implementing transaction batching, which saves much more block space than SegWit (it decreases fees by 80%).

Please help and let's ask Gemini together to implement transaction batching, and ask for an ETA as well:

"Korean Drama"

I lost my BTC, and some nice people here helped me get it back. Thanks!

Mon, 01/15/2018 - 04:40

I am the dumb guy who wanted to get some BCH, but when CB said they weren't going to honor the split, I sent my single BTC (purchased at $700) to a downloaded wallet address program. (Ironic that CB has now honored BCH, and I didn't get a share because I moved my coin out.)

Then, I proceeded to paint myself into a corner by impatiently uninstalling and deleting the cache files of the program--repeatedly--because, before it would show my balance, the program wanted to download the entire transaction history, but my computer was freezing it up.

I came here, asked for some advice, received the obvious, "lol noob", etc replies. But, a few people took the time to give me actual advice which resulted in me getting my coin back in mid-October.

Thanks, redditors.

Never do a $10,000+ wire transfer

Mon, 01/15/2018 - 02:36

Starting $10,000 or equivalent in your country, your wire transfer automatically raises AML laws and needs to have a declaration. In France called Trackfin. Yes you cannot transfer more than 10,000$ withouth being checked like a sick monkey. The money can be freezed by the government you can get fined, a lot of very fucked up things. That is how bad financial freedom became.
