Could this result in a cascade of lawsuits? There's millions of dollars in losses involved here.

And it would have heavy implications to us, just think about the headlines in major news outlets "he lost everything because of cryptocurrencies", "U.S. biggest cryptocurrency exchange sued", "don't invest or you could end up like these people" etc. Normies that are investing now would gtfo on a whim.

I dont know about the shit you sayin guys.

NOW ALL ETH ON COINBASE IS FROZEN THEY CANT TRADE IT AND CANT MOVE IT BECAUSE ETH SYSTEM IS DOWN

So it is confirmed now that it was due to an actual sell order (multi million dollars) and not a "technical error" like the ETH shills hoped for.

I may be wrong but I think their system did as intended....
>>
>>2556372
>>2556502

Noob here. Am I reading this correctly? Some person who owned 39,300 ethereum coins just ordered the system to sell them all at once, thus crashing the price and also causing a bunch of other people to trigger sell orders for their own coins as the price crashed?

Thus, a single dude looking to cash out was able to fuck over hundreds of other people simply for the lulz?

it is said to be the creator that did this. so my guess is that he knows his coin is shit. going to kill it and rewrite code and start a new coin. billions will be losted. in a matter of secounds. this started 3 days ago eth system crashed and has not recovered. then the sell today. in 7 days gdax is stoping trading. ya get out
>>
>>2556586
Yes, that's why it crashed down to .10cent an Ether. I don't think it was simply for the lulz, it was a planned flash crash. Look at these buy orders tho lmao.

It was a result of a large market sell order and then it triggered margin sell orders. If I understand correctly. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Also, was anyone here margin trading on gdax today?
>>
dubs and Gdax reverses TXs

anything else, rip
>>
>>2556586

The person with the 39k ethereum flushed millions of dollars down the toilet. It wasn't just that they cashed out, but they "cashed out" at a ridiculously low price.

A cat probably walked across their keyboard.
>>
>>2556707
Or before he crashed the price he put up a buy order first and doubled his eth
>>
>>2556743
Or he had a massive short against ETH.
In turn he makes bank and fuds ETH at the same time.

wait so the ETH that crashed the market today was from the genesis block?

so one of the eth foundation members did this? the original ICO buyers don't have coins directly from the genesis block do they?

this is a huge scandal.

why would they do that? Isn't ethereum doing business with the whose who of the world? Does this kind of volatility mean they'll soon be out?

so theyre not refunding anyone?

if no good for them. people who play with fire are gonna get burned once in awhile. i mean im not HAPPY people lost money but i dont think being a sore loser has any place in markets or crypto

its not gdax fault that someone sold a large amount of Eth? This can happen anytime with any coin. Just dont do margin lol
>>
>Margin accounts
not
even
once

im guessing the amount of stop losses that the mass sell-off triggered caused a shitload of margin calls and wiped out entire portfolios as well?

Yeah ~~overlitigious~~ and other memes, but what even is the case?

that's margin trading man. It's all fun and games til you get gang banged. I find it funny, fuck every single one that got caught, since they are the reason everything went down today.
>>
>>2556448
they knew what would trigger a margin sell off like that. this is a inside job. the initial funds lost on the first sell are covered with the buy orders placed very low. scam

well ive dabbled in margin trading desu, just small amounts, but even regular trading theres alot of risk here that youve gotta learn to shoulder

Just don't margin trade on leverage. Only borrow to the value you hold and you don't have to worry about liquidation if a single coin does this.
Now if the whole market crashes 90%, well you have bigger problems anyway.
>>
What does this mean for the near future? Isn't eth switching over to pos soon? What about the EEA?

There might be lawsuits... and this could possibly end badly for coinbase.
Traditional exchanges have “circuit breakers“ in their order book. Means if it drops e.g. 20% within seconds, sells will be disabled for 15 minutes, then it continues. This is specifically implemented for this known issue. However, coinbase doesn't have this feature... let's see how it ends. I for now take my coins off there

at least theyre not fucking over the people smart enough to have buy orders set low like gemini.

specifically, the "liquidation cascade"
this word means nothing in my brain dictionary
>>
>>2560723
when you set up a margin order, you're borrowing other people's funds to multiple the gains you make (ie you're betting 3x as much, but if you lose 1/3rd of your funds,, you lost everything) . when the price swings too much the exchange automatically sells your shit so it can return the money to the people you borrowed from. so everyone who was margin long on eth got forced to sell their eth to return lenders funds, multiplying the sell off effect

So many retards on this thread, this has nothing to do with ETH, it's just how margin works, it will happen to any coin or stock, usually when there is lot's of open margin order on an exchange site, the site tips a whale that a market buy/sell of X$ would trigger a margin call liquidation cascade, the whale put beforehand large limit order at ridiculous price, then trigger the liquidation.
They buy all the liquidated assets at a fraction of it's real price, and share half of it with the exchange site who tipped them.

>>2563662

Wouldn't surprise me. Coinbase has limits on how much you can sell in a day, so you theoretically shouldn't be able to drop that much ETH in one order. If Gdax pulled that trigger to push out all the margin traders and buy up cheap ETH, that's a major scandal.
