Warning: Using Bter for NMC

Post by haiqu » Tue Feb 23, 2016 12:05 pm

Three weeks ago I transferred some namecoin out of Bter exchange. The transaction didn't show up in the blockchain but my balance vanished. After a support query, tech support reported a week later that they had fixed it but my transaction still remains missing, the exchange balance wasn't restored and the NMC never arrived.

Proceed with caution.

Thanks for the warning. Has anyone else who's reading this had issues with Bter, or used them successfully?

I'm not actually sure what our policy is these days on listing exchanges on namecoin.org; last I checked the website says that we don't vet exchanges, but I can recall a few cases where we removed exchanges due to reports of shady activities.
