MAID Relisted on ChainRift (Exchange Shutting Down)

It is virtually anonymous currently. You have to provide data when you want to verify in order to raise your limits.

This kinda worries me a bit. Like you are sure that’s totally legal? I was under the impression that even outside the US you pretty much always had to follow some AML KYC law.

I mean I like that it is convenient for me to just jump right in with no hassle… kinda like btc-e was before the US government took them down and stole all the crypto.

We’ve done due diligence and we’re confident that we can offer a limited tier such as this, at least until the circumstances change.

I’ve also explained previously that we wouldn’t be holding anyone’s crypto hostage if the situation changes and we can’t offer this tier anymore or are forced to remove it.

sounds good. I mean don’t get me wrong I am not complaining. I prefer to trade without sending my ID out to all corners of the earth.

To where would you point in ChainRift’s terms for that provision? I did read the entire agreement and I don’t recall language to that effect.

Having lost 5 figures USD of MAID to Poloniex by trusting “Mike” as well as Circle’s own corporate statement, I would be encouraged to see the protection explicitly in the agreement.

Btc-e was super shady, iirc they got shut down for allowing laundering, it was bound to happen.

We don’t have this in terms but I’ll forward your query and see how we can fit this in.

Although Poloniex seems to have just got back on their word. I would say we have no such intentions but i suppose Poloniex could have said the same.

well thing is with no KYC this is a place money laundering could happen. (although at current volume I don’t think it will be enough to hide your mafia don income lol.) The way AML laws work, at least in some places, is if you even create and environment it could happen (eg having no KYC) then you are in trouble regardless of if anyone actually laundered money there. Now there is a list of placed you can’t be from to use ChainRift. It doesn’t seem like a big list to me but I dunno maybe that’s all of the places with more aggressive AML laws.

If you’re able to cite example sections in laws supporting your claims I’d appreciate it.

sorry I am not a lawyer and would have no clue how to search that out. Just going based on the fact every large exchange has KYC

Would it be possible to import the MAID chart data from poloniex into chain rift?

1 Like

This is not possible because our charts reflect history at ChainRift and not at Poloniex.

BTC seems to be quick / appears as pending and takes 3 confirms. My MAID seems stuck? I dunno I’ll leave it 24 hours and then open a ticket.

Good excuse to test the respond times of support, I’ll report back.

No need to wait if it’s been this long. Feel free to open the ticket.
