BlockTrades will soon be offering full exchange services (in addition to “instant exchange” service)


Until now, BlockTrades has only offered an “instant exchange” service, similar to a currency exchange at a bank or at an airport. This form of exchange service is generally easier to use and less risky than a traditional exchange service that matches up price orders between it’s customers, because customer funds aren’t held at an instant exchange.

BlockTrades’ new trade-matching exchange service will support Hive trading

But with the announcement of Hive, we wanted to ensure that there would be at least one traditional trade-matching exchange service available at launch to support the coin. So for the past week or so we’ve had a team working to set up a new BlockTrades-branded exchange to allow trading Steem for Hive and other coins (BTC, LTC, etc).

I think the new exchange will be ready for launch by the time Hive itself launches, or very shortly thereafter. The trade-matching exchange service will be hosted on Bitshares, a decentralized, transparent, blockchain-based trading platform. More details on how to trade on the new exchange will be available soon.

Identity information required to use our trade-matching exchanged

Note that to trade on this new exchange, we will require customers to be provide identification info on our trading portal via their BlockTrades account there (we are required to do this by US regulations).

So if you want to be able able to trade Hive soon after it's listed, I recommend you send us your authorization request now, so that you'll be ready to go when trading commences. You can do this by going to the profile page of your BlockTrades account, then selecting "Authorization" from the Profile menu. However, if you've already previously provided identity info and been authorized, you do not need to do this step again.

After Hive launches, only our trade-matching exchange will support Steem tokens

We will of course maintain our existing "instant exchange" service, which will continue to function as normal, but going forward our "instant service" will only support Hive, not Steem.

So we will only be providing Steem trading services via the new trade-matching exchange.

I can sell all of my Steem and Steem Power for Hive?

I might wait for cucky sun to pump Steem then sell, but I dont want to give that tool that much credit, he is probably going to be broke after this.

When all of this mess settles down and I go back to doing my own witness voting, you folks have my vote! Now I will go and do all this stuff! Not doing any trading or purchasing of anything right now for obvious reasons, but I want to make sure I am all set up. Thank you so much!

If no one else does, I will be sharing this with the folks in PYPT. @shadowspub is great for getting informaion out. I hope she is not mad at me for tagging her (some people do get mad when I do that). This will probably be of great interest to her and @pennsif as well!.

I logged out and logged it again and it seems that it worked as I can see that my identity request has been sent 3 times.

Sounds great!

So are you saying I won’t be able to use the instant exchange to swap my liquid Steem for more Hive? I can only do that by verifying my identity and using the new trade-matching process?

If so, why?

19.03.2020 22:22
0

I wanted to clarify this as well @blocktrades.

Are you saying we can swap between Hive & the other coins (but not STEEM) on the instant exchange (which requires only an email for up to $1750 in trades per day), but that we can only swap STEEM for all of those other coins on the new exchange, which requires some sort of proof of strawman in order to access?

Proof of strawman. Lol 😂 . Funny you.

As government mandate every exchange user must have KYC. I already submitted my identity to blocktrades couple of months ago.

20.03.2020 03:10

Taking into account that @blocktrades is removing STEEM from the "instant exchange" platform and only making it available on the trade-matching exchange, which requires identity verification, the answer to your question is yes. STEEM -> Anything seems to require identity verification.

Hi there

I've been reading through many comments related to new hive chain and I've seen your comment too. Many users are being torn, however majority seem to be moving to new hive.

Are you fully moving there or will you stay on both chains? Just curious. I'm trying to figure out what to do myself.

It's available to everyone and if your trades are below $1725 you don't need kyc as far as I can see?
Just hit this toggle saying you are not a US citizen.

do you have to pass on the identity information to authorities or is it remaining on servers for some time until they are needed by authorities?

20.03.2020 00:05

It just requires an email address to sign up for trades below $1725. I'm assuming that if you trade more than that then the IRS will need you to keep records of your trades for tax purposes?

I know we're mad at Justin Sun's abuse of STEEM, but I don't like that you're dropping the Steem Instant Exchange. Heck, you could use all the STEEM people drop to increase your stake vs. STINC.

Hello @blocktrades,

i have now created an account at blocktrades.us and will send you my authorization request within the next days to be ready for trading.

I also wanted to ask you if I can add you as a recovery partner in my recovery account once you have the information to identify me through the authorization process?

If so ,how can we contact and positively indentify each other?

So that my posts, comments etc. only appear on the hive blockchain, I only have to register via hive.blog or can I still use Steempeak?

By the way, I have a suggestion for the re-branding of Steempeak. What do you think about HIVETHRIVE.io?

I write it here because I have not much resource credits to post and comment so often. I'm sorry.
