If it hasn't been done already could we remove mint pal from our suggested trading platforms

Well, this should be another good lesson for us. Centralized exchanges (and pools but that's a different discussion) have always been the biggest source of threat to the crypto community. Maybe this should be a good incentive to add decentralized, p2p exchange service (btc->drk->btc) on new Darkcoin wallet?

I think we should be a bit more patient. Yes, mintpal should have tested more before migrating and yes this is a huge fuck-up but it would be too drastic move to completely boycott them as a community. In all that rush, I also left a 3 digit coins in mintpal but I am not worried about it.

p.s. These things are expected in crypto community. Darkcoin had terrible hardforks how many times?! Everyone said we should have tested more but did we listen? no ;)

A P2P exchange would be great as would a P2P lending forum like BitcoinJam.

I agree there are definitely lessons in this. I'm off for lunch, good talking to everyone! And don't overdo those drinks ;)

DO not deposit anything on the new mintpal! WARNING I just got advised that funds have been transferred to other addresses check your block chains! I'm investigating this right now, please wait for further details and final confirmation of this… EDIT: with a fee…. moolahmintpal has been contacted waiting for a response from them.

Praise Jesus my DRK are there.
It seems to be a bitcoin issue for the person who told me about this… his bitcoins are no longer on the exchange and have been sent to another address that he has never used before.

With a charged fee of 0.00012085 BTC

Well for me everything is fine, but I cannot withdraw anything so still a bit useless.

quote from naxin on dark coin ann:

I just withdrew funds without any issues.

Now I'm missing two bitcoin deposits still, but that is another issue entirely.


Thats the second person with bit coin issues on moolahpal so far…

UPDATE: It seems the problem is for people who deposited BTC to their account when V1 was down, just to clarify that ongoing situation.

I'm still in withdraw limbo, but support have replied to me so things are functioning in terms of communication.

Same here. Withdraw limbo. Support have acknowledged but it's very frustrating as I've been waiting over a week now to get the coins to set up another MN. That's a good few ££ of lost earnings :mad:

What did support say? I haven't gotten a reply from them for 2 hours now.

Just that they're looking into it. Not good enough really, although I'm trying to be patient and understanding about it... Sadly, my patience is wearing very thin now. But what can you do...?! :sad:

My guy asked what the details for my withdrawal was and that was it. Nothing since earlier today.

Hi, just to let you know, you can now cancel the pending withdrawal and the balance refills and I've just tested a 2 DRK withdrawal and it works, phew!


EDIT: I was in the same boat, got caught out by the upgrade and when I got back in I ended up with a stuck pending withdrawal, time to get your DRK the hell out of there before something even worse happens. I'm not convinced of their security when they keep having to apply patches on patches ....

hmm, in saying that, my larger 73 DRK withdrawal is sitting at Pending, I wonder if they need to refill their hot wallet or something?

Yes, finally mintpal allows us to cancel the "Awaiting confirmation" and free the coins for trading. But i tried to test withdraw 3 drk and they haven't showed up in my wallet for more than 5 minutes now. Still says "pending" in the withdrawals list.

Looks like MP have finally got their shit together. I canceled my previous request this morning (now that the functionality was added) and I've requested again, email came through immediately and after a wait of around a further 20mins the coins were transferred to my wallet... Phew...!

This was for a (relatively) large number of coins too >1000. So any concerns about their hot/cold storage should be alleviated hopefully.

Well that was a joke and I lost out on a bunch of trades. Bye bye Mintpal.

This totally needs to happen right now, at least temporarily. It's beyond "Just be patient" at this point. I used to love mintpal and I hope they'll turn it around, but for the time being pointing our new users in their direction can only hurt darkcoin. As RenegadeMan put it:
This sort of amateur-hour inanity is just not good for crypto. Imagine if you'd introduced a friend to DRK, showed him or her how to buy it on Mintpal and a week later this is what they're subjected to.

Who needs Mintpal? CCEDK can be Darkcoin's new home!

This is a twitter out at the moment. I have just put a welcome note in the bitcointalk thread introducing the 9 pairs available for trading with DRK. I hope you will make use of this time, and consider moving all your activities to CCEDK. Once some are there, more will follow, and it will eventually be a safe haven for all DRK believers.

Welcome to CCEDK

Yours sincerely

Apparently Moolah has announced Bankruptcy. I hope people managed to get most of their funds off of Mintpal before this announcement and ''update''….

Yikes, glad I withdrew with the last disaster. I've just scopped up a bunch of cheap coins from the fallout.
