After very long period of inactivity I just recently noticed that poloniex froze all Maidsafe withdrawals. I still have quite a lot of Maidsafe on Poloniex that are now frozen.
Not your keys, not your crypto … i know !
YET! While browsing the forum it seems that they recently moved a bigger chunk of around 780.801Maisafe out of their wallet.
I wrote an email to their support team, and they simplied lied and said their node was out of sync.
So they can move Maid around.
Is there a possibility to take legal action against Poloniex here ?
Here is the reply from their support team:
Hi, Thanks for getting in touch about this.
Unfortunately, there is not a way to transfer a delisted asset out of your Poloniex account at this time. When a currency gets delisted, the Poloniex node is no longer synced to the currency’s network which makes withdrawals impossible.
Please keep in mind that we announce all delistings and timelines for removing tokens from our exchange in an email sent to every customer who held a balance in said token. We also posted on Twitter, in our Help Center, and the Notices section.
Once the timeline passed, deposits and withdrawals were disabled for this asset. Your balance is now archived and no longer available for withdrawal.
Our terms state that we have the ability to delist assets at any time, but if we ever decide to re-list a previously delisted coin, we will be sure to contact all customers with an old balance. Let us know if we can help with anything else.
I would definitely pursue this as far as you can. The wonderful thing about blockchain is that it is a permanent, immutable, and public record. They moved >700K MAID last month. They can’t deny this. I hope you get your MAID back.
I’ve been stalking them over the last month to get to the bottom of this. I can assure you, the support team isn’t going to help. All they’re doing is lying and deceive. It takes them a week to answer to come up with another bullshit answer.
If you want to take legal actions I fully support you even though I have no remaining funds at Poloniex myself. But yeah, I did want to notify you of my actions, will save you a month of going back and forward without any answer.
Definetly, but the weirdest thing is I can still see them in my account.
If we go to safecoin isn’t it an option to prove I still have these coins in Poloniex including trade history and ID etc.? And maybe they can then be swapped.
Long story short, can we do something to block poloniex and help the early adaptors. I bought my maids in 2017.
