I’m a newcomer to the Bitcoin World and working to learn about it.
I went to the library and checked out a book to help get me up to speed: The Ultimate Guide to bitcoin.
I thought a © October, 2014 would be a pretty recent book, but apparently not. In the list of bitcoin exchanges it has Cryptsy with a note as one of the “Big Five” exchanges.
So, I started following some links in the book and found the Cryptsy page 404.
Scratching my head, I googled about and found Cryptsy is dead meat! An article on Coindesk dated May 10, 2016 told me the bad news.
Things move so fast in the bitcoin world and there’s so much to learn. With this event, it tells me I better research before I make any big moves.
This lends to me support for my decision to get a hardware wallet and store the lion’s share there and not on the exchange’s wallet.
