Updated security system and transaction log

2 Wochen

We updated our security system similar to 1Fox: now it is possible to request a Two Factor Authentication reset in the settings menu of your 1Broker account. Since today, you can also filter your transaction log by type of transaction. We also refurbished our Newsletter. For further changes, here is the detailed change log:

  • New API call: position/get.php to get position details for a specific ID.
  • New security system.
  • Email notification on login from new IP address.
  • Resend SMS button appears after 30 seconds next to your smsTAN input field.

SegWit and API Changes

1 Monat

On Sunday May 20th 2018, we will upgrade our Bitcoin wallet infrastructure to be fully SegWit compatible. Unfortunately, this requires that all deposit addresses will change and transactions to old addresses will no longer be credited. If you send funds to and old address by accident, we will manually credit your deposit upon your request.

SegWit, among other things, increases the available space for transactions per block and makes second-layer solutions, like the Lightning network, possible.

By adding 1Broker to this new wallet infrastructure, transactions between 1Fox and 1Broker will be instant and with virtually no fees. Withdrawals to regular addresses will be charged with a floating transaction fee that is updated every hour depending on the required Bitcoin network fees. This floating fee will be much lower than the previous fixed fee we used.

After this upgrade it will also be possible to send Bitcoin transactions to the new alternative address format called Bech32.


API Changes

With this update we will update our API to version 2.2 that includes the following changes:

  • The user/bitcoin_deposit_address.php method will be removed and replaced by a new user/deposit.php method.
  • deposits_unconfirmed field was removed from the user/overview.php method.
  • deposits_pending field was renamed to pending_deposits in user/details.php.
  • A new position/get.php method will return position details for a single position - works for open and closed positions.

You can find the details about these API methods in the API documentation after the update.

Warning: Never let others trade on your behalf!

2 Monate

We are observing multiple communities that attract new investors by claiming to trade on behalf of them and promise stable returns. Investors are asked to transfer Bitcoin and are often kept updated solely via screenshots. We strongly advice against participating in such schemes for the following reasons:

  • We offer a Copy Trader system that allows to copy another trader without needing to send Bitcoin directly.
  • The "trusted" trader could lose your investment or disappear at any time.
  • Screenshots and other account information can be manipulated and investors have no possibiliby to find out how their investment is really performing.
  • The "trusted" trader's account can be overtaken by hackers due to weak knowledge of IT security.


The case of ZiangFaith

A few days ago, we received multiple messages asking us about the account ZaingFaith. We also received more than five emails from different addresses claiming to be the legit account owner and stating that the email address used for 1Broker has been overtaken by an attacker. Later we found out that this account was used to trade on behalf of multiple investors (see above).

We immediately blocked this account to avoid further damages. Unfortunately and although best efforts, we were not able to find out who the original account owner is and therefore decided to transfer the account to Christine Benedicto, a participant/victim, who helped us in this process in the past days. She has a much better insight into this community and it will be her responsibility to act in the best interest of this trading group. Withdrawals are locked until we receive the confirmation from Christine and other members of the community.

Since multiple investors are affected by this incident, it is our responsibility to share some basic information of this account:

Join our Telegram group!

3 Monate

In the past months we primarily focused on our new cryptocurrency trading platform 1fox.com. Today we finally deployed some upgrades for 1Broker again. The most notable change is our new official Telegram group - we hope to see you there!

Here is the full changelog:

  • Replaced captcha system with Google’s reCaptcha for a better protection against password guessing bots.
  • Replaced some PNG icons with vector graphics.
  • Fixed vertical position of select input fields.
  • New notification when an order/position is rolled over to the next underlying future market.
  • New notification when a refund/payment/donation is credited.
  • Fixed an issue where values in the UI were rounded differently than in our backend (seemingly leading to incorrect order executions)
  • Performance improvements for many methods like fetching the transaction history.
  • Better visual representation for phone-number input fields.
  • Dozens of minor improvements and changes.

BTC/USD is back on 1fox.com!

4 Monate

Exactly 267 days ago we closed the BTC/USD market on 1Broker. Today, we are happy to announce that BTC/USD trading is back on our brand-new trading platform 1fox.com. Similar to 1Broker, you can open leveraged long and short trades with multiple order types on a minimalist interface. To reimburse you for the long waiting time we have reduced trading fees on 1Fox until March 15th, 2018. In the coming weeks we will also add many new social features that you already know from 1Broker. 

A few hours ago we reached another milestone: The 50,000th trader signed up for 1Broker. We have no words to describe how thankful we are for the interest in our services over the past years! 

PS: We also combined and updated our Terms of Service for both platforms. Make sure to check them out.

Bitcoin Gold claim

6 Monate

We believe that our users should benefit from blockchain forks whenever possible. The Bitcoin Gold blockchain proved to be valuable and stable and therefore we added this coin to our "claim"tool: https://1broker.com/trade/#snapshots

On October 24th, 2017, when the Bitcoin Gold fork happened, we snapshotted all account balances (this includes open positions and orders). If you had a positive balance on this day, you can claim this amount with our claim tool by entering a Bitcoin Gold (BTG) address where we can send your funds to.

This is a semi-automatic system, which means that it can take up to 7 days until we make the transaction. You can find this claim tool in the trading interface by toggling the options menu and pressing the "Fork Claims" button.

Bitcoin Gold claims will be possible until March 31st, 2018.

Bitcoin Cash claim tool

7 Monate

We believe that our users should benefit from blockchain forks whenever possible. The Bitcoin Cash blockchain proved to be valuable and stable and therefore we implemented a new "claim" interface: https://1broker.com/trade/#snapshots

On August 1st, 2017, when the Bitcoin Cash fork happened, we snapshotted all balances (this includes open positions and orders). If you had a positive balance on this day, you can claim this amount with the new tool by entering a Bitcoin Cash (BCH) address where we can send your funds to.

This is a semi-automatic system, which means that it can take up to 7 days until we make the transaction. You can find this claim tool in the trading interface by toggling the options menu and pressing the "Fork Claims" button.

Bitcoin Cash claims will be possible until December 31st, 2017.

Segwit2x action plan

8 Monate

Update November 9th

The Segwit2x community suspended its plans for the planned protocol change. It is not expected that a blockchain fork will happen on November 16th. This blog entry is therefore obsolete.



Once both networks (Bitcoin legacy, Bitcoin2x) are stable, we will choose a primary currency for our trading platform and offer a claim system to withdraw funds to the competing blockchain. BCH (Bitcoin Cash) can be claimed too, then.


Around November 16th, 2017, when block 494,784 is mined, a protocol change of Bitcoin, called Segwit2x, will take place. It is not expected that this change is accepted by all members of the Bitcoin community, which means that this will lead to a blockchain fork.


What is a blockchain fork?

In short, a fork is a permanent divergence in the blockchain that occurs when nodes follow different consensus rules. A few hours after such a fork, some transactions will exist in one blockchain, but not in the other one. While this sounds like a minor problem, Bitcoin will be effectively split into two separate currencies then. Depending on the Bitcoin node you run, you can't be sure if your incoming and outgoing transactions are valid in the competing blockchain anymore.


What happens to Bitcoin stored on 1Broker during the fork?

We believe that our users should benefit from forks whenever possible. When this fork happens, all owners of Bitcoin will have funds on both blockchains. For this reason we will snapshot all of our users’ balances (this includes orders and positions). Once both networks prove to be secure and valuable, we will choose a primary base currency for our trading platform and offer a claim process for the competing currency. Trading will remain open during this time.


What is the timeline?

12 hours before the fork will take place, we will disable all deposits and withdrawals until both networks are stable and we chose a new primary currency for our trading platform. We expect that this will take between 2 and 14 days. A few days after reactivating deposits and withdrawals, we will open the claim system where traders can withdraw their funds to the competing blockchain.


How do you choose the primary currency for 1Broker?

Our decision will be based on economic factors like market capitalization, community support and the actions of other businesses.


Why is not possible that both currencies can be used for trading?

1Broker was designed as single-currency platform and implementing a multi-currency system is an extremely complex task. However, we plan to offer this feature in the mid-term future.


What happend to my Bitcoin Cash (BCH) from the August 1st fork?

Similar to the upcoming Bitcoin2x fork, we snapshotted all balances on August 1st, 2017. The claim system of your BCH coins will open in parallel with the Segwit2x/Bitcoin claim system.
