Is Virtex (cavirtex.com) a reliable trading platform for Bitcoin in Canada?

Other places to buy Bitcoin in Canada besides Virtex

I have been trying to verify my account with Virtex, and they haven't gotten back to me in days. I was already on the fence about them as their site looks very cheaply built, but now I have completely lost faith.
Where are some alternative places I can buy bitcoins in canada?

$100K traded through Vancouver's Bitcoin ATM in one week “We’ve had lineups all day every day”

$100K traded through Vancouver's Bitcoin ATM in one week “We’ve had lineups all day every day” submitted by DTanner to Bitcoin [link] [comments]

Maybe a bit of comfort for anyone who is really concerned

I will post from it solely for the sake of getting this out, don't think it'll help much, but may be a bit.

I have been around (crypto) since 2013, and at that time I was in Vancouver when the first Bitcoin ATM in Canada, as well as one of the first in the world - was installed in the waves atm. I bought some bitcoin for dirt cheap back then, which is long since sold and invested into other things. I met some very interesting people at the ATM though, and made friends quick.

Soon I was invited to check out the Bitcoin Co-Op. A local spot with a bunch of enthusiasts. One of them was Gerry, Gerald Cotten - the one maaaany of you seem to have many theories on. Gerry was a young kid, maybe 19 or early 20s. Skinny, white, no muscle, but good enough looking dude with big wavy hair. Him and Michael - can't remember his last name, were working on Quadriga. Until this time, Gerry was a serial coder making a lot of different portal sites, one of which he was proud of was "cruise dude" a site with a bunch of tips on how to get deals on cruises, smuggle booze in through gift wrapped presents, etc... he made about $60 cad a month on this site.

Gerry also had some odd health issues, He would have to travel back for doctors appointments and treatments when abroad. I never knew much and never asked, because we werent that close. Just acquanitinces within the community.

Soon, Quadriga was launched. I was using CaVirtex - which was THE behemoth Canadian exchange at the time, and then Vault of Satoshi a toronto based exchange that was sooooo soooo good. Well, I put a couple bucks on Quadriga, and was one of their first clients. I've seen exchanges COME and GO over the years, and ALL the exchanges people thought would be around forever (btc-e namely) - have come and gone.

Quadriga I always trusted, and never had an issue with. Recently Ive been travelling, and only really had some loose thumbs on this reddit to see all this shit unfold. I've got some cash on there, not a ton - but enough its gonna sting if I lose it. Yeah, I'm a bit worried.

Moral of this post is that his health issues were real. Michael did depart several years ago, and Gerry and whoever the Quadriga team is have ran this exchange. Now that Gerry is gone, and I know no one who is at the helm - there is definitely cause for concern. Quadriga is likely contemplating the recoupment of trust after all this shit has went done, but they have been and could continue to be one of the premier and early days trusted Canadian exchanges. The amount of money they made and make in fees is insane, and the team would be silly to throw that all away. My gut tells me this could fall apart, but my hope tells me its too good for them to do that, and they will fix it. Its just gonna take time.

SO - best thing to do? Treat all your money / crypto on or with Quadriga right now EXACTLY as you should be treating your money in crypto "like it's money I can afford to lose / already consider lost" - it's an investment. If it goes 100% south you know in your head thats a risk you were already willing to take.

So unplug your worries, go do something else with your life and keep a distant eye on this for news or withdrawals to show up. The times I forgot about my crypto and left it, were the best. The times I kept an eye on it every day, caused the most stress and the most stupid moves.

Alright, just wanted to post that and you guys can do what you like. Peace out!

Beginner’s Guide to Exchanges – Part 1

Beginner’s Guide to Exchanges – Part 1

Hola Compadres! It is me u/poop_dragon here with another guide. Today I would like to run through a list of ETH exchanges. This is just Part 1 of this list, and it covers established exchanges. Soon I will post Part 2 and 3 which will go into some other types of exchanges (derivative markets, coin converters, decentralized, and foreign exchanges) Side note, I have given rating to these exchanges based on some comparisons, news, and information which I have found online. Recently, EVERY exchange has been slow/unresponsive in their customer service due to the huge influx of new users. My intention is to help educate new users about the exchanges available. I am not trying to discredit, advertise, pump up, or damage reputations. If you feel something is inaccurate, please respectfully bring it up in the comments. I will be editing as we go. Last thing of note, I have only included the lowest level trading tier to calculate trading fees, which assumes the highest rates. Most exchanges offer lower fees for bigger orders, but I have gone with the assumption that everyone here is not dropping whale amounts of cash.

Alternatives to MtGox

More than 80% of all Bitcoin trading is done on MtGox. I think this centralization is harmful and people should start using other exchanges.
All currencies/More than one
US Dollar
Euro
Canadian Dollar
Polish zloty
If you have more exchanges or information I should add, feel free to name them.

PSA: Vault of Satoshi is now demanding a "selfie" before allowing fiat withdrawals to all previously "verified customers"... If we were verified last week, why must we now submit a stupid selfie to re-verify?

I have just sold all of my fiat back into Bitcoin and withdrawn it from their website. Thankfully they don't demand a selfie to do that... yet!
I am opposed to their new "selfie security" for a number of reasons:
Apparently Kraken implemented it only for German banks due to fraud or something about 2 weeks ago. It seems like the VoS security team saw that and thought "Wow! Awesome idea!" and implemented their own version just a few days ago.
I live in Canada, just around the corner from VoS's head office actually, and was already "level 3 verified" and have already withdrawn quite a few Bitcoin from their website in the recent past. That, it seems, is suddenly not good enough and I am a security risk now because I refuse to submit a selfie.
Looks like it's back to old CaVirtex for me now. Shudder. At least their fees are a bit lower that VoS'.
In fact, I'll probably even try btc-e. Those guys would definitely never demand a selfie, I am sure of it.
Why can't Bitcoin just go to the moon now so we don't have to bother cashing out by going through these rinky dink exchanges?
If there are any venture capitalists looking to start a professional Bitcoin exchange in Canada, please do so! You could blow the two idiots running the show up here out of the water in no time. Neither of them really know what they're doing imho.

Tired of seeing Canadians get ripped off by Virtex (cavirtex.com) - (x-post from /r/bitcoinca)

Virtex (cavirtex.com) is Canada's largest bitcoin exchange. Why? Easy. They were the first here. We live in a country that offers literally the MOST in terms of bitcoin services and ATMs.
What has happened as a result? 1. If you bought and sold bitcoins, you pay 3% (used to be 6%) in fees. 2. Verification take longer than a month to complete. 3. Their customer service line explicitly tells you NOT to call about verification (so why ask for our personal info?) - In fact, nobody is there to answer the calls. 4. Tickets take forever to answer.
We're paying high fees, and receiving shit service from Joseph David, and his team of "professional" staff. I know someone who's waited literally MONTHS for a debit card from these guys. Not to mention, they deducted $10 from her account without her knowing. She's furious.
So why do we still deal with Virtex? Because most of us don't know about other alternatives. There are other Canadian bitcoin exchanges which have easy verification and charge far less in transaction fees. If more canadians sign up and use it, the volumes go up, and finally, virtex will get more competition.
What are those exchanges?
  1. http://www.VaultOfSatoshi.com - Took me 24 hours to get verified with these guys. They're located in Brantford, Ontario. The owner of this exchange answers the customer calls personally, and if he doesn't answer, his employees are super kind. They fielded my call AFTER business hours, and when I apologized for taking his time up, he never gave me the feeling like I was a burden to him. Great service, low fees. THEY ALSO OFFER LITECOIN AND PEERCOIN!!!!! THIS IS HUGE!! Their volumes for litecoin is alright.. we need more people to use it.
I have deposited coins there, and withdrawn fiat. Took about 2 days (more like 1.5 days). These guys are great.
  1. http://www.CoinTrader.net - Another successful project from the British Columbian-based company Bitcoiniacs. They offer a full scale exchange with low transaction fees, and are already established as a brick-and-mortar store. This exchange is bitcoin only. Took me less than 24 hours to get verified with these guys.
The above are trusted bitcoin/litecoin/peercoin exchanges based in Canada. Who needs Virtex when these options are available? Fellow Canadians.... don't get sucked into the virtex monopoly. It's bad enough that all our media, telecom, and banking are owned by less than 10 companies.. let's not get sucked into yet another monopoly.
tl;dr: Virtex offers crappy service with high fees, walking around like they own bitcoin in Canada. The fact they have higher volume still boggles me when there are other perfectly viable options in Canada. Please help spread the word. We need to help these other exchanges get bigger making room for fair competition in Canada.
Thanks for your time.

What's the deal with CAVIRTEX? It's lagging behind a lot!

at the moment its at 990. It has yet to breach 1k and yet all the other exchanges are well ahead of that. MTGOX is at 1216! Is anyone else concerned abouto this?

CaVirtEx: Debit cards have arrived as a new withdrawal option

Oct 9th, 2013:
In the interest of releasing this to the public quickly, we are proud to announce our Beta launch of Debit Cards that will work with any ATM or POS terminal in Canada and even some internationally! For faster withdrawals you can now sell Bitcoins for CAD and then take out the cash at any ATM! There is a one-time fee of $10 to have the card mailed to you, once you have the card there is a low administration fee of $1.50 to add funds to the card. You must have VirtEx CAD to withdraw to this card and you must be cash or online verified but no bank account is required. Loads are performed once per business day at 5PM(MST) starting tomorrow.
The first step is to make sure your contact information has your correct address, this is where your card will be mailed by regular mail, next go to Withdraw CAD and choose an amount to withdraw A debit card (with PIN) will then be mailed to you but the amount will not be loaded until you have confirmed receipt of the card by submitting a ticket under the new category: ”Prepaid Debit”. You will then receive a confirmation e-mail when your first amount is loaded. More details will follow with the release of a full fee schedule for card use shortly. When Beta ends in approximately 1-2months we will enable live 24/7 loading of these cards the moment you press withdraw CAD! We will also allow for Canada express post rush card delivery shortly!

[CAvirtex] - Investment Question: Does anyone know if they keep their profits in BTC?

Can't find shit online about this company's finances, nor can I find their prospectus (can anyone link? Everywhere I go is a dead end)
I know they have ~50% of revenue from fees in BTC, but do they keep their profits in BTC? Hard to understand how to analyze the company as an investment if they aren't clear about that

Company is asking me to remove myself as a moderator from the sub I created about their company.

About a year ago I started a sub called /cavirtex about a bitcoin exchange in Canada. I do not work for or represent the exchange, but I am a user and a fan.
Last week someone from the exchange with the username cavirtex_com asked to be a mod and I granted their request. Then they deleted all of the old posts and put up new ones about them - "The Virtex Difference" and a video about their latest update.
After a lengthy friendly exchange in PM, the user asked me to remove myself as a mod from the sub, stating that they wouldn't be able to use the sub "in any official capacity" until it was only moderated by Virtex employees.
I have removed all Virtex users as mods from the sub until I hear from the community that this is acceptable.

Question about fees

Some vpn website only accepted bitcoin as payment for a $35usd monthly fee so I bussed to a bit coin atm to buy .1049 bitcoin.
According to virtex and bit stamp at the time the price was 380 usd for 1btc. I live in Canada so that equals 424 cdn according to xe.
Well the bitcoin machine said 457 for 1 btc. So .1049 cost me $47.93
But the bitcoin atm does not dispense change so I had to put in 50. Now I have $1 something in my wallet.
So in the end it cost me an hour or so of my time and instead of paying 35usd which is about 39cdn I paid $50.
How is this better than using my visa debit? Sure the exchange rates sometimes vary but my bank exchange rate was about the same.(as xe)
Sure there are no merchant fees as some say but what about me? Why did I have to leave my house and pay almost 25% more for a service ?
The place said the atm is 5% more than cavirtex.. and I'm sure atm rates aren't going anywhere. Neither are exchange rates.
Why would someone choose the hassle of rates over a simple no fee interest free visa debit payment which is insured by my bank ?
Thx for the Downvote in advance. Also I know I'm asking a question at the end of this post but my point was really to show dissatisfaction with the service

My experience with the various Bitcoin ATMs (Robocoin, Lamassu, Bitcoin Briefcase)

So this month I got the chance to interact with various Bitcoin ATMs - I played a bit with Robocoin today, and tested out Lamassu and the Bitcoin Briefcase during Money2020 event. So here are my thoughts on them as well as some other information people are interested in.
So first of all, Robocoin. It's the only one of those that both sells and purchases Bitcoin. The process is a bit cumbersome to start (having to scan your hand a few times to create an account and wait a few minutes for a mechanical turk to verify that it's in fact the right hand and so forth), but after that it's pretty straightforward.
Some people were concerned about the palm scanner (both online and at the location). The developers of the ATM explained that they need to do that since they need to limit one person from buying more than $3k worth per day so they don't fall under AML regulations. They had a choice of scanning your ID, or fingerprints or the palm and they chose the last one since there isn't a database for palms that would link that scan to your identity. Given the restrictions they had to work with, I don't think that was a bad choice. At the same time I know a lot of people are very security conscious and would rather avoid that altogether - both sides of the argument have their fair points.
I talked a bit with the developers of Robocoin as well as listened in to one of my friends ask them some interesting questions about security and other things. All in all I must say they came off as very competent people. They know their technical things, as well as various regulatory issues (for example apparently if someone prints a paper wallet on the machine, loads it up and then sells / gives it to someone else that's creating a derivative market and technically you shouldn't be doing that).
As for the machine itself, I would say it's a little crude at the moment. Since it has so many widgets, scanners and so forth it's easy to get lost in the process of using it. I definitely would like it refined over a few iterations. Other than that, it does everything you'd expect it to do - you can load up your phone wallet through QR scanner, create a paper wallet on the spot if you don't have a wallet yet, and you can buy and sell bitcoins as needed.
Apparently the ATM does Bitstamp rate +3% (I might be wrong about the exact exchange, but I know it's not the Canadian VirtEx, since they were quite unresponsive in communicating with the developers). While the rate might not be that great in comparison to some other ways of getting BTC, but in Canada it's not entirely unreasonable with VirtEx charging pretty high fees by itself.
So overall, Robocoin is an interesting ATM with some good developers behind it, but it needs some more work put in to streamline the experience.
Now about the other two ATMs.
Lamassu is a bit of opposite of Robocoin. It has a small and elegant form factor, has just a camera QR scanner, a deposit slot and a display monitor. You can only buy bitcoins with it. Since it has limited options on what it does, the process is quite straightforward - put money in, scan address and send bitcoins. I don't know how they will be handling the AML regulations - it will be an interesting thing to see what their approach will be once they start releasing their ATM into the wild.
Bitcoin Briefcase has neither the elegant form of a Lamassu nor the versatility of Robocoin, but it's a fun little hack to carry around to get people interested in Bitcoin. It only takes change and pays out into a paper wallet it prints. It has a small display bar, a slot to put coins in, a wallet printer and a button to accept your purchase. It's not really a tool for frequent Bitcoin purchases, but definitely an interesting prop to bring along with to introduce people to Bitcoin easily.
So overall, it's really interesting to see what is being developed in this space. Robocoin is a big machine that might not fit everywhere, so it needs it's own dedicated space in some Bitcoin-accepting business. Lamassu is elegant and small enough to be placed on some extra bit of counter space available. The Briefcase is a neat hack that you can take wherever you go.

[Rumour] Bank of Montreal closing Bitcoin-Related companies' accounts in Canada! Please READ!

I just got in contact by phone with a few Bitcoin companies across Canada, Including /VoS (a Canadian-Based online bitcoin exchange) and all of them, with BMO, said they have no problem.
I also came across a news article on Coindesk which was an interview with Virtex (Another Canadian-Based online exchange) from last summer. It was in regards to having their bank accounts at several banks closed, including BMO. They said:
“The problem that the banks have with us isn't the bitcoin. It’s the fact that when you're accepting money, specifically cash deposits at the bank, you must have a license to operate as a Money Services Business.”
So what I think is that Cointrader.net was/is not registered as a Money Services Business and BMO found out and closed their account(s).
I will be going to BMO at some point this week. I'll ask them straight up and get back to you all.
Update: VoS and QuickBT both have no problems with BMO. VoS is licensed as MSB (thought I should note that too).

Off Topic: Best Bitcoin Wallets?

Hi guys...
I'm kind of a newbie to Bitcoin (yeah, surprising but I haven't a source of income, and thus investment, until now and I want to diversify my portfolio a little).
I basically have 2 questions:
1) What are some of the best (i.e. most secure) bitcoin wallets out there?
2) Where do I buy bitcoins from? I live in Canada, so do I use Virtex or what?
Sorry if these questions have been answered already...didn't mean to inconvenience anyone.

Noob Bitcoin questions

I've done a fair bit of reading up on this in the past few days and still have a few lingering questions, or hoping for confirmation:
  1. How do you determine trust in bitcoin exchanges. There are a few I found via Google for Canada, but don't really know which are legit, and which might not be. How do these things get verified?
  2. With exchange of bitcoins (say, for buying/selling of services), is it correct that if you don't receive your goods but have sent your bitcoins, you're shit out of luck? Ie., zero protection?
  3. Is it correct to understand that once you have your bitcoins, you can trade via any exchange worldwide? (ie., you're not limited to trading in your own country).
  4. Why would Mt. Gox ask me for personal information (full name, DOB, Home address) if one of the main features is anonymity? (don't mind, this is a curiosity thing really)
  5. Why are there withdrawal limits with exchanges like Mt. Gox?
  6. VirtEx seems pretty decent for Canada, but again, how do I know they're legit?
