Introducing r/CryptoCurrency Events!

We have an exciting announcement for the r/CryptoCurrency subreddit, the r/CryptoCurrency Discord, and the wider cryptocurrency community.

We have taken your feedback to make this subreddit better by establishing quality guidelines these past few months. This helps us improve the quality of the subreddit by excluding low-quality posts, such as pre-announcements, unverified announcements, memes, and more.

We have wanted to focus on the other side of the equation - making sure high-quality content was highly accessible.

To that end, we are announcing that we are reaching out to content creators directly to share their quality content in more prominent ways on the r/CryptoCurrency platforms.

If you are a content creator that consistently makes high-quality content and would like to expand your reach to hundreds of thousands of people, we encourage you to apply to host events. Your content will undertake significant screening from the moderators to make sure the content is factual, important, impactful, well-researched, and represents an important point of view.

We are looking for hosts of Reddit AMAs and Discord live audio events. We are especially interested in people who want to produce recurring content.

We feel that working directly with content creators will make sure that the community always has access to high-quality content. The best of these initiates will be shared prominently across our platforms.

Expect more announcements in the coming weeks as we launch this program and select content creators.

Q: How will the content creators be decided?

We want to make sure content creators are passionate, knowledgeable, kind, and represent an important point of view. We are looking for influencers who are willing to research the information behind a story, not just recite the information stated on there. We are looking to get a representation of people from a variety of projects, especially those that are not affiliated with specific projects.

We will not illegally discriminate in the selection process. Our moderation team is diverse, and we will work together to assess different creators on a wide variety of factors. We aim to be as transparent as possible. We will not give priority to specific projects.

Q: What content do you prefer?

We want quality content that contributes in a meaningful way to the cryptocurrency ecosystem. The ability to thoughtfully consider different viewpoints, compare/contrast projects in a meaningful way, and keep an unbiased approach is encouraged. We look for passion. In general, we prefer family-friendly content.

Q: Does anyone receive money?

No. The moderators do not receive money (bribes) from content creators to host their content. The creators are not compensated directly for producing their content. All of the produced content is released under the Creative Commons license, meaning it can be shared freely with attribution.

Q: How will the content be shared?

Content includes Reddit AMAs (held directly on Reddit), Discord voice chats, and recordings of these voice chats uploaded to a dedicated YouTube channel if desired. We do not currently offer live video events.

Q: Do I need to be a large influencer to apply?

No. You can be speaking to yourself for all we care. We will select you if you have a clear passion and produce high-quality content, regardless of current following. That being said, we of course need proof that you have created quality content in the past.

Q: What if I have another question?

Please ask it using this link in r/CryptoCurrencyMeta, or message the mods on r/CryptoCurrencyEvents.

Q: How can I apply?

Click here to apply.

Applications are due on July 20.

$50,000 Still Locked On Binance, Will Never Gain Access

Hello, to give some backstory to how I was initially hacked here is a post I made that somehow ended up being top post on this sub: http://goedhartvoordieren.nl/?page=r/CryptoCurrency/comments/8pyha5/my_binance_account_with_50k_has_been_hacked/

Since this happened I have had a very long month of speaking with Microsoft support everyday to try and retrieve my hacked email and they finally came to a conclusion. They told me to submit X information and I did, after waiting a month for a response they have said they fully acknowledge I am the account owner but with any Hotmail account that has had fraudulent activity on it what they do is indefinitely suspend the account and cannot give me access back to it. In turn I have lost a lot more then this Binance account, but almost my whole career unfortunately. But sticking to the topic of Binance they will not allow me to regain access unless I send the support ticket through the email associated with the account which is literally impossible as it has been suspended forever and no one can access it. I have the phone number, the google authenticator, the 2 step verification photos on the account are me, and prior to being locked out of the account I was instructed by a member of the Binance team named Jager to submit a photo of myself with my passport and a note that says "Please change my email to Be*****@gmail.com" which I did. So I have undeniable proof that I am the owner of this Binance account but they need the ticket to be submitted from the email associated with the account and Microsoft will not give anyone access to the email and has suspended it forever making this impossible. I am in the process of suing my phone provider Rogers which caused this whole problem in the first place and they have claimed full responsibility for what has happened. We are moving forward with the case very soon, so at least there is still some hope.

What to take from this: Don't use Hotmail

Amazon and Crypto

At a friend's house today I met someone that works for Amazon as a software engineer. After a long discussion the subject of crypto came up and I jokingly asked when Amazon will begin accepting btc as payment. To my surprise, he told me it's a topic that has been discussed multiple times and they are trying to find a way to deal with returns since there's so much volatility.

Now, this is coming from a software engineer and not someone in management, but it's great to hear that these discussions are being had to bring forth the next step in the global adoption of cryptos.

What's with numerous coins that suddenly "fell off a cliff" a few days ago?

I don't know if this has been addressed on here, but there seems to have been a coordinated effort to dump several coins at the same time a few days ago. Coins affected (that I saw): Wfee, Tenx, Gifto, Powerledger,Loopring, Status, and NEM. These coins, unlike other alts, suddenly and dramatically fell STRAIGHT down in a short time, followed by a completely flat price movement.

You can see how conspicuously they stand out here:

In each photo, you can see how the coins I listed really stand out because they ALL "fell off a cliff" at the EXACT same time, and they ALL have had a very flat price since then. Other alts have been up and down in "waves", but these coins aren't behaving like that.

Granted, I think most of these could probably be classified as "shitcoins", but NEM surprised me, as I thought that was a relatively stable project. It's strange seeing it dumped at the same time as a bunch of other less-known coins.

Anyone have any insight what happened?
