My Opinion

nothing but my opinion

BTC Exchange is breaking the data protection law from the most countries

The joke of the century is that is hiding their domain registration behind a privacy protection service, but they like to collect as much data as possible from their customers.

Apparently, their greed for data also hinders their thinking. A company that offers its services to customers around the world, breaking the local data privacy laws of most countries, is untrustworthy. Such companies are not suitable for an international business.

Such companies believe in their megalomania to be above the local laws. How else would it be necessary for customers to turn to the local authorities for conflict resolution?

Actually are listed 17 complaints at the Better Business Bureau against

Customer Complaints Summary
17 total complaints in the last 3 years
of those, 10 complaints were closed in last 12 months

The most of the available complaints are about unauthorized access to banking accounts. In my opinion are the responsible people from a case for the prosecutor.

As the above problems are not enough is getting found an entry at the Forex Blacklist:

Feb 23, 2018: The CSSF in Luxembourg issues a public warning against Uphold - - physical address not available

The Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF) issues a warning to the public concerning the website where an entity named Uphold pretends to act “with regulatory coverage with CSSF in Luxembourg”. The CSSF informs the public that the entity Uphold is not regulated by the CSSF and that it has not been granted any authorisation to provide financial or payment services in or from Luxembourg.

If you have read the complaints from the official authorities, then the complaints from private parties are very credible too.

Among many others you will find the following complaints against on

Basically, for me, all complaints are looking like someone wants to enrich themselves at the expense of others. I can not imagine that you can trust such commercial dilettantes. Who will be so stupid and order from them a cryptocoin wallet?

Yesterday I have tried it by myself to get a wallet from I have stopped as soon I have seen that this data collector likes to get copies from real world documents. So more than a verified gmail address they did not get from me. Afterwards I tried to get the already entered data according the European data protection law deleted. Since already more than 14 hours I did not get any confirmation that my data got deleted. You can see that you don't have any anonymity by using cryptocurrencies! Anyway, I have used one address, which I have not used and will not use at any other place. I'll get informed as soon as this address is getting used and will make the illegal data collector in front of the law court responsible any illegal use according the European Data Protection Law. There is no difference found in this law if the data got stolen or simple misused. In both cases the company gets prosecuted.
