Great seeing community effort lead to a new exchange. MaidSafe working with our community and delivering on honest exchanges that don’t do all the BS listing fees is what MAID needs.
I raised some concerns in the other thread.
I’m fairly sure this guy wasn’t listed as working there.
Now the about us page is being updated so doesn’t even show.
All I can say is, careful with your funds folks.
I can confirm that he is not registered in the forum with a company email…
For what it’s worth, in early December, @Birdinc1 mentioned him as his primary contact at the exchange.
Let’s not forget the original contact , the one I mentioned in the other thread, whose bct acc still links to altilly is the one promoting the wash bot.
I’m steering clear, just making others aware of potential issues.
I hope its all legit, but I’ve become a slight pessimist over time.
In the crypto, it is not wrong to be pessimistic. Here are the best scammers that our species has to offer.
Do we even really know birdinc ?
Last seen 1 day ago here but didn’t answer your Q about any prior knowledge of the wash bot.
I’ve no reason to think birdinc isn’t legit, I do however question how far his due diligence goes.
My default mode is skeptical. Tweets from @maidsafe and @safenetwork that broadcasted the Altilly listing also cautioned people to be careful as well. We should continue to push for additional exchange listings. Funding and relationships are the key bottlenecks.
I very much hope someone checked and knows the identity of birdinc, if not then that would be a terrible mistake. It should be 101 to check identity, if not then it would be very bad.
I very much hope @Sotros25 or someone at Maidsafe checked identity and verified background.
Now I could be entirely wrong here, but I think swisspvtbanker introduced us to birdinc, but I have no recollection of why I think that.
I think you are wrong, birdinc has been in the forum since 2014…
I’m guessing i thought that as birdinc says he talks to exchanges etc .
Yes, I was wrong.
Anyhow, I dont feel he did his due diligence researching this exchange.
Just personal opinion.
Took me all of half hour looking online to decide I wouldn’t put money there.
And I wouldn’t put money in there, we have a very bad history with the exchanges. But to be honest, I don’t keep money in Bitrex either. When I buy for myself, I try to be at risk for as little time as possible…
He said he’d been in talks with this exchange for several months. Let’s see what light @Charles_Naughton can shed on Savage’s delayed deposit.
So far no MAID available for sale on Altilly and only 3 crap bids in
I have registered but wont be depositing anything until I hear some positive news
Obviously, do the due diligence chaps (I know we have been burned before!), but let’s try to stay positive. Many have bemoaned not having more exchanges and it looks like community efforts have facilitated this new one.
So, thanks to those who have made this possible. I don’t do much trading, but I appreciate your efforts!
But honestly, its not like I was ever suggesting they’d just hijack the initial deposit.
I don’t think that’s what’s happening here. One thing that I thought was less risky about this—say, compared to Bitker—was that they didn’t ask for MAID to provide upfront liquidity. I hope that whatever savage sent was a relatively small “test” amount.
What would be the point of stealing 1 deposit? chill, they probably have a backend bug they are trying to fix. Give them a chance to prove themselves. (as soon as I can verify, i’ll move some funds too)
