Poloniex grin/btc down

This was expected after the long shut down of GRIN/BTC pair. It was the pair with the most volume traded, so I am little confused why they did that. I expect the other Grin pairs to be shutdown sooner than later.

It is a little sad, because Poloniex was hot on GRIN in the beginning . It was one of the few exchanges that donated part of their fees to the Grin development.

They were, but then Justin Sun bought Poloniex.

A total f**king disaster for Grin. Poloniex had been building a decent reputation as a reliable exchange which is hard in this whole space to put it mildly – so what if Justin Sun bought it - it’s a business and as much as all you idealists complain about people like that, there would be NO crypto exchanges with any volume to speak of, without some investment of hard currency… I don’t see too many people involved in the project saying “yes, can I please be paid in Grin”. Get REAL! There are too many idealists thinking Grin is bigger than everything else but it has done very little to validate that notion so far. … if you can’t trade it against BTC you can forget about Grin…

It is also worrying that Grin is like one of the very few Coins at Bittrex that seem to be inactive (see screenshot), now for almost over 1 1/2 weeks. Bittrex allows EUR on-ramping, so you can directly transfer FIAT from your banking-account to trade it against BTC (and then GRIN).
I don’t know the reasons why known Exchanges seems to drop support for GRIN but this is becoming a growing issue.

its off-topic but it doesn’t need an own thread so i’ll post it here: BitForex E-Mail Ads look like this:


Grin is marketed as part of the “first Row” of Crypto, however im wondering why of all Crypto-Projects they picked Grin in their ads since its price only knows one direction and usability has still its issues. Still its nice to see Grin here.

It’s a recurring theme. My local gateway exchange lists only Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and Grin.

Kindly tell exchange name or link

Poloniex wallets back down.

yesterday i installed the App Blockfolio on my Smartphone (Android). Opening up the App you get to a “Main Portfolio” screen. Only 3 Coins have been displayed there: DAI, Bitcoin…and Grin. This is sooo odd. I almost feel tracked by Grin. The worst case scenario is that all services (Bitforex, Bitfolio App) uses some almighty advertisment network that knows my interests and display relevant coins to me. But then again: I dont give a *** about DAI. Strange.

From Bitforex transactions not gouing? not able to withdraw . Anyone did withdrawal?

1 Month ago i had some issues withdrawing from BitForex but in the end i could withdraw GRIN from it (to Grin+±Wallet). In your case unfortunately not a single Transaction was successful. What wallet do you use?
You should check with https://grinchck.uber.space/ if your https-address is reachable before submitting a transaction. Good luck, im sorry you have some bad experience using Grin. This stuff is super annoying and no user should have to experience this.

Blocks are empty no one use grin it is impossible to hide when you transaction is alone in block.
Now it is not privat no secure. We must be honest with people they dont understand and believe in what they read about coin.

@david time for you to code that IDEX into your wallet like we spoke about on discord.
I’m sure people would be more than happy to pay you a 1% fee to code a btc wallet into your grin++ wallet and perform grin/btc swaps.
You might unironically become grins biggest volume trader if you could get that working.

Bittrex withdrawals/deposits are off for months.

Poloniex can’t seem to process withdrawals either.

This is embarrassing
