A word on exrates:
We didn't pay for the listing. However, like always: We do not endorse any exchange. Simply because we can't.
I have looked into the issues that have been forwarded to me.
Withdrawals not working: This has been fixed today. The minimum amount and fees are out of this universe, I already contacted them about it.
Support page not working: Link in the menu is giving a 404, but the chat in the lower right works. I told them about the broken page.
Crappy Design: Ill give you that one. But it works.
Fake Volume: There is the chance that this is correct, like most top50 exchanges.
Social Media: Bought likes, replies and follower. Seems like. Depends on you if this matters.
And here comes the very important part, which makes me wanna freak out and bite into my desk:
I could not find a single propper scam accusation. Please link me one if you know one. Watch my lips, I will talk real slow: This is still crypto. He said, she said doesn't work!
Just because of some random dude on Reddit, bitcointalk or xrpchat (holy moly i said it!) calling something a scam, it is not becoming a scam by default. That's not how it works.
Here is how a proper scam accusation looks like https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2248106.0
This topic was written by me and explains in detail what happens along with proof for people to verify. You should be able to spot the difference between this and "yAdA yAdA aLl mY cOiNz GoNe!!!!!!!!!! ImMa cHaRgIn My LaZar!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
So if someone got "scammed" I expect at least that level of detail along with facts that can be verified.
If there are proper accusations, please point me to them. Again, please note I am not defending exrates I am just stating what I see.
What I have tested myself:
Deposits and Withdrawals
Support does its job.
All issues I did make up for support (lower right) have been resolved.
Fiat Deposits via Perfect Money.
Referrals are working.
Basic Security Stuff, in place and working.
Their API is nice.
I am posting this just to reply to all messages I got at once and I am happy to have a serious convo from here moving forward. I am not endorsing exrates.
If you have any doubts about any exchange, do not deposit any coins or fiat and always stay away!
No hard feelings, just want to make sure we are all on the same page and talking about this on the same level.
