If You’re Being Scammed by Bitflyer… (Bitflyer.Sucks)

Posted on 28 October 2018 by Andrei

As a bit of an update on the Bitflyer drama, I have good news and bad news: the good news is that I’ve managed to recover my bitcoin from Bitflyer (what ultimately worked was emailing them and CC-ing the Japanese Financial Services Agency, the New York State Department of Financial Services and the CSSF, as explained on Bitflyer Dot Sucks).

The bad news is that reports similar to mine keep piling up, even among domainers. For example, earlier this week, someone posted that he or she is going through the same situation as a comment to my initial Bitflyer warning. The same way, complaints are popping up over at Reddit and other platforms. In my opinion, there’s something very, very shady going on, which is why despite getting my money back, I’ll be maintaining the Bitflyer.Sucks website and enabling others to share their Bitflyer horror stories.

Domains and… the Next Financial Crisis?

Posted on 15 October 2018 by Andrei

As I’ve mentioned on more than one occasion on DomainingTips, domains are “risk-on” assets and while that does mean that in the event of an exogenous shock which brings about a market crash (a deflationary event), they’re likely to become even less liquid than they are now and go down in value, it’s important to understand that a financial crisis can come in all shapes and sizes.
