If you update the firmware you are probably safe, but why take the chance? The Trezor itself (or even the included USB cable https://www.wired.com/2014/07/usb-security/) could have been corrupted/replaced by a sophisticated actor. If someone gave me a used Trezor for free, I would throw it in the garbage. No discount would be sufficient enough for me to ...

This more of a question about excel than it is actually about Bitcoin. But the answer is actually pretty easy. The first thing is that the data that you want to import from the web may not be easily isolated, so you might have to import much more data than you want into a second excel sheet, then link the cell with the data you are interested to a cell in ...

You can get any price quotes, in a JSON format, using these kinds of endpoints: https://btc-e.com/api/2/ltc_usd/ticker https://btc-e.com/api/2/btc_usd/ticker https://btc-e.com/api/2/ltc_btc/ticker The structure of the endpoint is https://btc-e.com/api/2 and then currency_currency and then /ticker.

A fee is charged over the filled portion. Either the whole order or partial. If an order was cancelled before a trade took place (0% filled), no fee is charged. If an order was cancelled after a portion was already filled, the remaining part is cancelled and no fee is charged over the remaining.

1) The exchange that has your bitcoin should have the option to withdraw bitcoins. It will then ask you to what bitcoin address you want to withdraw and how much. 2) The exchange you want to transfer the bitcoin to should have the option to deposit bitcoins, which will give you a bitcoin address to transfer to. 3) You can then directly withdraw your ...

Yep you can! This form of trading is called arbitrage and is not only done with BTC, but with nearly any un-centralized market. Only drawback here is the financial difficulty of moving fiat from or to Bitcoins, since exchanges don't let you share your fiat balance with others without having to withdraw to a bank account. The withdraw process for most ...

This is exactly how a normal stock exchange works. The quoted rate and the Buy and Ask prices are just driven by the supply and demand of people wanting to trade on that exchange. BTC-e operates an order book. Sellers add Sell orders with an Ask price which they are happy to sell at (This is called a Limit order) Buyers places Buy orders with a buy (or bid)...

It is a redeemable code. They can be obtained from BitInstant or AurumXChange. https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Redeemable_code https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/BTC-E Think of it like a prepaid gift card code. If you have one, you can punch the code in, and a predefined amount appears in your account balance.

Will the 2nd box effect how / if the order gets filled? Yes. The order can't be filled until there's crossing offer in the other direction. If I want to sell as I say then shouldn't the 2nd box be set to a lower price in USD so that they sell quicker? Or say I wanted to put the 2nd box to a value in USD that is higher than the highest bid then will it ...

I suppose trading bots are the reason here. They calculate usually with big precision, so such orders are normal for them. It is also possible that btce is doing some crosspairs (MtGox does it for sure): Someone wants to sell 1 BTC for 800 EUR. Exchange insert this order also to USD market with the price 1100.123123 USD. Due to price USD/EUR the amount might ...

Not from Btc-e though you can probably get them from bitcoin charts or start keeping your own and then just query that (thats what I did.) Btc-e's API sucks, but heres a project that makes several API calls not in their official documentation.

it was easy to set up for me using an android phone ... just install the google auth, scan the code they give you on btc new users should take a screen shot of the QR code and print it out and save in secure location. You can't get back to that QR code, so save it from the beginning. Here is a more general info on the topic: http://cadince.com/3-ways-to-...

The field indicates that the order is yours with a value of 1. With a 0, it indicates it is not an order made by you. It's indeed nowhere documented, the only valid arguments for my explanation are the name of the variable and the fact that I can only find 0 or 1 values for it. (I found this piece of code where they save the is_your_order field as a ...

If you're willing to buy BTC on Coinbase to xfer to BTC-e, when you want to cash out wouldn't you just trade over to BTC on BTC-e to xfer to Coinbase to sell for USD then withdrawal?

http://btcquick.com uses Google Checkout and supports Amex, I have not tried a gift card but it should work. They do require identity verification to combat the (massive) fraud risk they face.

I know it's an old post, but I stumbled on it while asking myself the same question. The answer is to use the ActiveOrders method (which I don't think is implemented in the c# BtceAPI)

It simply is someone with a lot of coins, who sold on the open market and depressed the price (temporarily). It was an economically unwise decision, since they missed out on the fair market value as you saw. This is one example of how the Powerful Elite can Thwart Cryptocurrencies.

I would not rely on vol or vol_cur as they are computing data in a way you do not want from data which is available to you. My recommendation would be to save the data of individual trades using btc-e API function TradeHistory. You can run a loop which would take the first result returned and using the timestamp as the parameter "end" for the next API call. ...

When you place an order to sell LTC in btc-e it checks if there is an order to buy LTC at the same rate as you specified. If there is order to buy LTC at the same rate as you specified in your sell order it will fill your sell order up to the amount of the buy order. If the buy order amount is bigger than your sell order your sell order will be filled ...

Your question might be out of context here (in 3 years, how many people will be interested in an answer, given that things change so fast in this space?). Having said that, it all depends where you're at. Some, but not all, exchanges will let deposits flow into your account if you properly explain to them the nature of your business, why do you want ...

Have a look at the documentation (unfortunately it's in russian, but google can translate): https://btc-e.com/api/3/documentation I think it's finished trades. Look at the Depth method to get open orders https://btc-e.com/api/3/documentation#depth If you are looking at the btc_usd pair, then the price is in USD, and the amount in BTC

All exchange websites have a Withdraw option that allow you to send BTC to another wallet (a local or an online-wallet you own on another exchange website). But be careful, some platform make you pay transaction fees, you'll have to check on the Fees page to find it. As I said, all exchange platforms have the Withdraw BTC option, and you can in all exchange ...

It appears you are looking at "active orders" if you are seeing this status. As per BTC-e API documentation (found at: https://btc-e.com/api/documentation), you should be looking at trade history, which will show completed orders. Partial orders would show as individual trades on as the result e.g. if you place a sell/ask order 1 BTC @ $1000 and I were to ...

I use them for my primary exchange. You can sell BTC/LTC/etc. for USD and hold the USD in your account without verification. As far as I can tell, there is no verification process nor a way to withdraw USD other than as a BTC-E credit. In my experience, you're better off finding a reliable third party that specializes in buying BTC when you are ready to cash ...

To send bitcoins from one exchange to another, you simply need to go to your target exchange, and find out what your bitcoin deposit address is.. Once you know that, go to the source exchange and withdraw, or send your bitcoins to the deposit address of your target exchange.. The funds should be over there in about an hour at the most.. Usually they show ...
