@Bitfinex what is going on here?

BITFINEX:OMGUSD   OmiseGo / Dollar
This is the kinda crap that gives crypto exchanges a bad name. Basically, I suspect, that everyone who had a leveraged long position on OMG would have been liquidated or maybe stopped out IF their orders were filled but I doubt an event of this magnitude will fill stop orders... Luckily I was not one of them.

What does the community think of this?

This smacks of rigging Bitfinex. How do you plan to stop this from happening in the future?
I really don't understand why people trade crypto's with a broker in the first place!
I bought 2000 tokens extra after this this spike down happened.

In the future there will be more and more decentralized crypto exchanges so that this kind of manipulation will stop.

Market manipulation, whales already make bulk sales and already place purchase orders in cinnamon.
This is also true of NEO and SAN

Whales do not give a fuck about other traders. This is why stops exist.

@jwlondon98, I'm no expert but I've heard stops don't mean anything when the market moves this fast. The slippage could be huge.

@SecondMouse, true
Don't you wish you were the guy who had that buy filled

@Nom_de_Guerre, I guess this is a reason to always have a very low buy order. Just in case...
