How secure is Poloniex?  They have a lot of BTC and BTS there, would be a shame if something happened...

That's why I hope we provide a little incentive for people to move to the DEX before something serious happens.
If we wait for polo/BTC38 to be goxxed to provide the incentive, we would suffer & not benefit for a very long time because of our exposure to them.

Poloniex was in fact hacked in the past. Which means to me they are probably much more careful now.

They got hacked once really early on, back when they were just another shit exchange.  They are 100x bigger than that now though.

They are secure enough that they havent been able to be hacked yet, even with their btc wallet being like the #4 bitcoin wallet in existence, and have hundreds of millions of eth.  I am sure many hackers have tried.


Of course, that is no guarantee they are secure.  All it means is they are on a higher level than all the shitty exchanges that got hacked.

Its like BTS couldnt go up during the entire time everything else rallied, and now it is determined to make up ALL the ground in a single day.
