Lets see how deep the reach of the deep state is over the lemmings. How popular will this no name get. I'm suprised this is even in the news. Why is this newsworthy? I saw this in a belgian newspaper. Gary johnson. Nope. Rand paul last year? Nope? Ron Paul? Nope. But this guy. International ffin news.
With most you need a lot more than sms verification.
Kraken does not need sms, which is why I got hacked last month and lost 3 btc, they do want your ID and bank account info though.
I would suggest you use sms verification or an authenticator app. I am now switching from sms to authenticator plus on some exchanges.
Well final tally is 119k btc. This is too much imo. It is known they control a wallet of 33k btc.
Their btc market volume is probably a small 10 million btc / year. At 0.2% taker and 0.1% maker fee this generates a revenue of about 25 k btc / year. Their ETH, ETC and LTC markets might double that.
So we're probably looking at a theft the size of their reserves + 2 years of revenue.
My assessment: Game over Bitfinex.
That's 39 ETC and 0.7 BTC i'll never see again.
