Bittrex announced that a whole bunch of markets are permanently closed, so I am forced to discontinue them. They will be removed on June 1.

I am marking Fedoracoin and Infinitecoin for discontinuation. We lost about 0.05 BTC yesterday due to a 51% attack on the Fedoracoin network reversing a long string of our blocks. More importantly, Cryptsy then decided to raise its number of confirmations for deposit of both Fedoracoin and Infinitecoin to 500, which means that our blocks would take multiple hours if not days to deposit in Cryptsy and leaves us extremely vulnerable to losing money due to price changes in those markets. I have contacted Cryptsy requesting more reasonable confirmation times, and I am awaiting their response. If they decline or don't respond, we can't risk mining them.

These coins are available on the Cryptopia exchange but even though I trade there I still do not fully trust the operators and therefore I do not recommend using them.

Cypherfunk
DuckDuckcoin
Vegascoin

We don't store any money in our exchanges, so we don't have much to lose should the operators be untrustworthy. The main issue is that exchanges like Cryptopia and YoBit don't have a full-featured private API including deposits, trades, and withdrawals, so we can't use them.

Hmmm, I will have to say I love Cryptopia. It is my very favorite exchange they have been nothing but good to me since i joined about a month and a half ago. Every one in the chat is cool and they are always giving away tons of free coins. They have taught me a lot about mining and trading that i didnt already know as well.
