Here's How to Check If a Bitcoin Address Is a Scam ...

Breaking Theymos - all you have to do is to follow the money

I know, you guys are tired of hearing about theymos, but the only way to get him removed from power is to prove that he broke some rules and have proof to back it up. Some of you have some real time on your hands. You should use it more wisely. There is something called the blockchain, it's a global public ledger, so where theymos thought he was being slick, he really wasn't, and all his misappropriation of funds over the years is going to catch up with him.
All you need to do is spend a little time following the money bitcoins and then connecting the dots. Then show the proof to reddit admins or heck, just show it to the police, he is in the states, and voila, no more theymos.
Let's take an example and walk through it.
I'm sure if you guys keep on digging you will keep on finding more, but those tidbits might be enough to send him away for what is called embezzlement! look it up, or at the very least, taking redditors money and misusing it for his own personal funds!!!

Questions about the BTC-e Situation and Possible Connection to Alphabay's Recent Demise? (Long post)

Foreword: I am a geek for all things hackebitcoin related drama. I think this stuff plays out like a soap opera and it's beautiful. It's due to the simple fact that the BTC community is made up of a diverse set of people: Hackers, Entrepreneurs, Nerds, Drug Dealers, Fraudsters, etc. So I think for historical purposes it is great to note all the events that happen during huge events like this, because should bitcoin take off, this will be stuff of the history books. So if you have any information to share, please do, and let's try to make archives of all information as websites come and go.
 
The recent BTC-e post by wizsec is a very big deal, possibly more than most people here realize. BTC-e was an integral part of the crypto trading industry. However, there is still a lot of missing information that greatly affects the narrative and I would like anyone to chime in with educated opinions.  
 
Let me start with some facts about BTC-e:
[1] It was widely assumed it was russian and I don't believe btc-e did anything to hide that fact. I have seen people say Bulgeria also. [This](https://www.reddit.com/BitcoinMarkets/comments/2c84bl/does_anyone_know_who_is_the_founder_of_btce/cjcv63w/ post by -Mahn is where I got the info about Malta and Cyprus so might be worth double checking.)
[2] see [this](https://www.reddit.com/SheepMarketplace/comments/1rvlft/i_just_chased_him_through_a_bitcoin_tumbler_and/cdt17a8/ and this
 
So I have a couple questions about the role btc-e played in laundering funds in the past and what their involvement with the mtgox hack is.
[3] [Kyle Torpey](https://twitter.com/kyletorpey/status/890253492190945285 Charlie Shrem coindesk )
[4] This is an assumption that they are non exchange related addresses because it wouldn't make sense for wizsec's accusations if it was an exchange address. That would simply imply that the coins went through btc-e in the same manner any other deposits do.
I had more questions ealier but I can't remember them at this time, so I'll edit this post as I remember them. If you have any questions you think should be displayed above, post the and I'll edit them in. I appreciate any input on this situation because I find it downright fascinating and I have the feeling it goes deeper than we think.

People are too lenient with Poloniex, this could end badly.

I remember thinking how the Mtgox spread didn't make any sense but nobody cared. I think this should have made us more careful about where we send our coins. But it has not. Companies that lack minimum transparency shouldn't get meaningful volumes.
I'm not saying Poloniex is a ponzi or a con. But I would put them in that group with Btce that most people don't trust too much. And this would result in a catastrophe if things went wrong because they get way too much volume from the the btceth pair. Their business is very profitable but an exit scam is not the only risk. They could be the victim of heist.
This is a company that is understaffed, not transparent and has already been hacked once.
I had a >100 btc withdrawal stuck with them waiting for approval for more than 24hours not so long ago with no answer despite serveral attempts to contact them. Never got an answer at all from the compliance/ withdrawal limit guy on skype. And got an answer by email way too late. Cost me an arm as I got the money out in eth and had to convert it back in the middle of the crash.
I guess they were refilling their hot wallet but it shouldn't take 24 hours and or at least they should make it known to you that they are refilling the wallet rather than leaving you in the dark.
I don't cry over the loss because it made me realize how foolish I was to trust them and got all the btc I had deposited there for lending out.
I would really like to see their btceth volume moving to Kraken or at least Bitfinex for peace of mind.

What Happens If BTC-E came back ONLINE.....

Every one think that people gonna take the moneys and coins out of exchange immediately ..... Yes that's right, 70% of people would move out immediately for their safety. and trade VOLUME will be weak on the exchange for a while...
But wait ........
********* If disaster doesn't kill you, Makes you STRONGER.**********
People gonna stay away from exchange for a while and will watch it how its running, and slowly going to return back to the exchange as this exchange handled the huge disaster very well.
Peoples money remains safe and that is the point that people going to trust them again.
Remember : BTC-E.com is the oldest and safest exchange since 2011. it has a future that you don't need your ID card to use the exchange and that is the beauty of this exchange.
Company worth Millions of dollar based on their income which is more than 1M per day in average. They will be back to normal volume after a month or two , even STRONGER than before. Also I'm pretty sure that admins and owner behind BTCE are smart enough to know every thing about this industry. and they know the REAL VALUE of the BTC-E brand in bitcoin market and they will not going to lose it as simple as that.
DO NOT PANIC wait Patiently , Let them do their work, your money is safe and untouched. Help them to bring back up, BTC-E by not panicking.
Note : They will lose much more money than YOU, if they don't bring it back up. It might take another week, Just be patient.

Timeline of my dealings with WEX and the ongoing theft of funds.

**Timeline:

I placed a ticket with wex asking for my account to be unbanned as soon as the ticket system was up, this was around Sept 3rd I believe, I don’t know for sure because they have deleted my ticket. I do not have my replies because of this, only their replies which went to my e-mail.**

Fri 22/09/2017 8:29 PM Elon (WEX) [email protected] Subject: Account Banned Dear users! Please accept our sincere apologies for the delay. Verification on our platform for blocked users will be available next week. We will inform you personally when this procedure starts. We have launched the main service on time and this one will be launched on time too. We hope you will stay with us, despite the inconvenience. Thank you for your patience. Respectfully, WEX Support

**A few days later, I am able to login to my account and see my BTC and USD balances reflected accurately, I cannot goto any other page on the site except for verification, every other click will redirect me to a message that I need to be verified. A couple weeks go by as I go through verification and wait it out, verification is passed, my account is unlocked and I discover my balances are zero and I have no account history. Also I notice my account is unlocked for withdraw, which doesn’t really matter at the moment because there is nothing to withdraw anyway.

I ask them whats up thinking it’s just some mistake.**

Hello! We informed in the news that we don't possess historical data on transaction and orders of the old platform, that's why we cannot approve or deny your words about funds deposit. The funds were credited to the new platform WEX.nz in the amount shown in your profile. During the period after BTCE closing and before WEX opening, all transactions were fulfilled out of control of the old platform as well out of control of the new one.
Здравствуйте! Мы сообщали в наших новостях, что не владеем историческими данными по транзакциям и ордерам старой площадки, поэтому подтвержить или опровернуть ваши слова о зачислении средств не можем. На новую площадку WEX.nz ваши средства зачислены только в том количестве, что отображены у вас в профиле. После закрытия BTCE и до открытия WEX все транзакции проходили вне контроля старой площадки и еще вне контроля новой.

I ask them how that is possible when everyone else seems to have access to their accounts with relevant balances (approx. 61% + tokens) and my significant account is at dead zero with no explanation.

Vladimir (WEX) [email protected] Mon 16/10/2017 9:45 AM Hello! Dear User! Payment operations for deposit and withdrawal of fiat funds are supported not by the btc-e platform, but by a third-party payment company, which means that the funds were not received directly from you, but by placing them on deposit accounts of this third party company. Btc-e exchange was in fact only the place of the auction. In this regard, we ask you to contact the payment company directly for processing the return of your money transfers.You can submit your request for return of a transfer without registration by clicking on the link https://support.moneypolo.com/tickets/new
Best Regards, WEX Support Knowledge Base https://wex.kayako.com

I will note that I have never deposited or withdrawn fiat, and have never used moneypolo at all. I explain that this has nothing to do with fiat transfers in limbo or some such answer.

I reiterate that I most definitely had a significant balance and it is now missing and provide the amounts that are missing.

Vladimir (WEX) [email protected] Fri 20/10/2017 5:51 AM Dear Customer, Thank you for contacting WEX. Please specify provide us with the detailed information on transactions and balances and provide any other data that can help understand the situation as soon as possible. If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact us again. Best Regards, WEX Support Knowledge Base https://wex.kayako.com

I ask them specifically what they are looking for.

Vladimir (WEX) [email protected] Wed 25/10/2017 9:05 AM screenshots from the mail, screenshots from payment systems, a screenshot from the wallet from which you make deposits or other confirmation. Best Regards, WEX Support Knowledge Base https://wex.kayako.com

I send them screenshots from a bitcoin core wallet I used with btc-e.
Vladimir (WEX) [email protected] Fri 27/10/2017 2:30 AM Unfortunately, this is not enough, they are not informative. Best Regards, WEX Support Knowledge Base https://wex.kayako.com

Vladimir (WEX) [email protected] Fri 27/10/2017 2:31 AM
The addresses of the purses must be indicated on each transaction Best Regards, WEX Support Knowledge Base https://wex.kayako.com

I send them the addresses that appear in the screenshot, (I had labels in the bitcoin wallet for these transactions), between the screenshot and the address I provided and a two second look at the blockchain it can be easily verified. I also offer to sign with the keys on these addresses which I still control.

Vladimir (WEX) [email protected] Tue 31/10/2017 2:25 AM The addresses of the purses should be visible in the screenshots Best Regards, WEX Support Knowledge Base https://wex.kayako.com

I ask them if I remove the labels and re-send the screenshot will they finally restore my account.

Vladimir (WEX) [email protected] Tue 31/10/2017 2:30 AM We will restore your account as soon as you provide confirmation of your transactions with btc-e Best Regards, WEX Support Knowledge Base https://wex.kayako.com

I remove the labels and re-send the screenshot they have requested. Notice they have indicated they will (can) restore my account.

Vladimir (WEX) [email protected] Tue 31/10/2017 4:08 AM Account unlocked Best Regards, WEX Support Knowledge Base https://wex.kayako.com

I login to my account again, still no balances or history, but I notice I can withdraw now (great, theres still nothing to withdraw!) I ask them again what’s going on, and now a different person answers me.

Admin (WEX) [email protected] Tue 31/10/2017 2:10 PM Hello!
Thank you for contacting the WEX Exchange Support Service.
We do not have data on deposits and deductions from the previous site only on current balances.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us.
Yours faithfully, WEX Support

Knowledge base: https://wex.kayako.com

**I ask them how it could be when 10’s of thousands of other users have history and can get into their account just fine with 61% of their balance and tokens etc.
This is met with no reply, a deletion of my ticket, and no further responses to another ticket I lodged.
This is where it stands today. **

Beginner's Guide to Exchanges - Part 2

Beginner’s Guide to Exchanges – Part 2

A little late, but as promised here is Part 2 of the Beginner’s Guide to Exchanges. I would like to sincerely thank everyone for their support and feedback in making these.
Link to Part 1
This time I also made a Google Docs survey in the hopes of sharing the results with the community. I thought we could share what we use as a whole and why redditors choose the exchanges they do. For skeptics (as you all should be), I assure you that I am not collecting personal information. This is for recreation and if you are still wary, then by all means abstain!

06 – Fiat Exchanges – South Korea

안녕하세요 여러분! 혹시 우리 한국인 친구 이 보고서를 한국어로 읽고 싶어한다면 알려주세요. 관심이 많이 있다면 간단한 한국어 보고서도 만들 수 있습니다. This year, ETH has taken off like a rocket in the Land of the Morning Calm. With a population of just 50 million, South Koreans account for almost 30% of daily ETH trade volume. Even more surprising is that currently the daily volume of ETH is about 5 times higher than that of Bitcoin on Korean exchanges. Since demand is high, ETH is trading at a premium on Korean exchanges. Some users have been talking about capitalizing off this imbalance by trading on arbitrage between exchanges. For those who have no connection to Korea and hope to do so, I have bad news – all Korean exchanges require a National ID number and access to a Korean bank account. This makes Korean exchanges virtually closed to Korean nationals and those with long-term visas. Sorry everyone.

Bithumb

Coinone

Korbit

07 – Fiat Exchanges – China

With a great deal of anticipation, major Chinese exchanges started trading ETH this summer. Since these exchanges deal huge volumes of Bitcoin already, naturally it was expected that they invest heavily into ETH as well. So far this hasn’t quite lived up to the hype with many exchanges still favoring Bitcoin, Litecoin, Altcoins, and even Ethereum Classic (Gulp). Three of these exchanges underwent inspections by the Peoples Bank of China earlier this year and will be working closely with the government to ease fears of money laundering and market manipulation. There are a lot of Chinese sites, and since my Chinese is non-existent this list is basically just for name recognition. In many ways these sites are very similar in regards to security, verification, and fees compared to their western counterparts; just marketed at a different audience and currency. If users are seriously interested in these exchanges and making reviews, please contribute or ask!

Having a terrible experience with Coinbase Canada

So I've been in the BTC space for awhile and have had active accounts on numerous exchanges - Bitstamp, BTCe, Kraken, Cryptsy, Poloniex, even Gox - and I have to say that never have been so frustrated simply trying to registeopen a BTC acct/wallet than on Coinbase Canada!!
As part of the initial 5-step process you have to verify email, verify your phone via SMS, input personal details/address etc and 2 other steps that I haven't even been able to get to, one of which is apparently gov't issued ID verification - all of which is fine with me if any of it actually worked!!!
Email and phone verified fine, then for some reason personal details would not update and so I could not complete registration - would not progress to ID verification. Managed to get to ID verification through their 'exchange' page, but there none of my ID would verify through the automated process - tried scanned and webcam photos of both gov't issued ID and also my passport. Finally, I tried to at least enable Google Authenticator 2FA so they would quit SMS'ing my phone after literally every change I tried to make which is also super annoying (have to have this on in order to enable google 2FA). Once again, could not get Google Authenticator to enable - would not accept either the authenticator code or the SMS code even after time syncing...seriously getting ridiculous.
I have no idea what is wrong with their site right now but it's about the jankiest shit I've come across in the Bitcoin space thus far. I realize you don't have to enable 2FA and verify gov't ID, but the whole reason I want to open a Coinbase acct is to have increased limits to trade the BTC/CAD cross as it seems like they have decent liquidity for CAD. Anyway, I currently have 3 ongoing support tickets with them that have been little help thus far, and basically just felt like I needed to have a good rant about this ridiculously broken registration process.
tl;dr avoid coinbase canada.
**Update: -Google Authenticator code was finally accepted so this seems to be back online for the time being -Finally heard back from support on the ID > literally 2 lines explaining how my government issued Quebec ID card is apparently not a recognized form of ID by Coinbase!!?! Have now emailed them my passport copy and awaiting the next lines of BS from the completely impervious support.
**Update 2: Wow. So here is the latest reply from 'support':
Anthony replied: Hi Chris, I’m very sorry for the difficulty, unfortunately we’re not able to manually mark the ID verification requirement on >your account as complete at this time. We’re working to update our ID verification system so that it can >accommodate a variety of methods, but it’s not yet possible for us to manually verify an ID in all cases. You can try uploading the image at https://www.coinbase.com/verifications/documents/new Please let me know if you have any questions! Warm regards
Are they for real!!?? They are literally telling me that not only is their website unable to verify my ID, they themselves are either unable or unwilling to verify it manually and I might as well just fuck off and go somewhere else...Wow.
**Final Update - Issues Resolved: So after roughly a week of back and forth of frustrating emails that seemed to be getting nowhere (no phone support available) all registration issues have finally been resolved. Apparently there was a bug with the payment processor they use, which has now been fixed and my registration is now able to be completed. A bumpy start but hopefully things are smoother from here.

Update on Weekend BitInstant Transactions

Good Morning All!
Essentially on Friday BitInstant, Coinapult, MtGox, BTCe, and possibly others (unconfirmed reports of Ozcoin) were attacked.
This attack was not just a DOS attack, rather the hacker attempted to change passwords, API keys, and generally fuck up our whole system.
Not only this, but it caused major issues and code breaks in the API used for BitInstant to talk to its partner exchanges where we buy BTC as soon as your deposit is made.
All funds are safe, nothing was lost.
We immediately took BTCe offline, Bitcoin-Address, and Bitcoin-to-email as well.
Now, BTCe is back online and has been since Saturday.
We've been awake the past few days 24 hours and looking to have Bitcoin-Address, and Bitcoin-to-email back tonight EST.
All orders that were delayed will have their fees fully refunded as well as BTC prices honored as early back as Friday when your deposit was made.
I want to take this time and thank my super devoted team of developers and customer support. They have not slept all weekend, making sure everyone's emails, chats, and calls have been answered within minutes.
Thanks for your continuing business and support
Charlie

Another Bitcoin promotion and adaptation idea. Need discussion, opinions and support.

Hello Community, I apologize for some spelling mistakes and (maybe) misunderstanding. English is not my primary language.
I'm thinking about write this or not for a few days. I can offer interesting idea about promotion and adaptation of bitcoin(BCH) for newbies, but unfortunately, I'm need some support, drive and stimulus. I'm owner of local communities at VK social network / VK = 14 place of top sites of the world by alexa: alexa.com/topsites / Communities are around ~43 000 and ~42 000 subscribers and with the same amount of unique visitors by month. Communities are about dating and fun, very popular. While it's "local area" communities, they have ~1th-2th place at the top communities at this this area. I consider them as a basis for the idea. But now, some words about social network: it's huge, very huge and most of the users are young people. 13 to 35 y.o. For the time being, they do not have large amount of money, they are schoolmates, most of them students who never used cryptocurrencies. I see in them potential to learn them how to use crypto and adoption. I can learn then where is true Bitcoin vs SegWitcoin, where/why is scamcoin or not. Believe me, I know how to explain and possess knowledge. I write much better in my native language. :)
What I want to do? I want: * start Bitcoin community where the main cryptocurrency would be Bitcoin (BCH) with explanation why. Additionally, I plan to promote some alts like BitcoinZ which is true community currency like bitcoin at 2009 year. It will be easy to start for students with it. Because it not hard to mine with any GPU and no need to spend money at the point of start. It's easiest to start when you do not investing real money. * I'm already done some research and guess that it will be possible to develop analog of tippr or chantip bot for the whole VK social network. It will also request hosting and development time.
What are the problems? I already had a lot of experience with communities like moderatoowneadministratopoint !!! : FidoNet, own local FTN network, own BBS, chats moderation, other communities and good experience at VK social network (now, own communities like I wrote before). And I'm web developer. Unfortunately, I'm not a big bitcoin holder. I come too late, because I expiry some life problems. Furthermore, I lost my bitcoins at 25 jun when BTCe went offline. At the time of action I was online and trade. When market go down before the site goes offline, I sell my low amount of bitcoins for USD to buy more at the bottom, because of that I lose 3/4 of bitcoins (if count at bitcoins). When BTCe recovered the price was completely different. And now I hold even smaller volume of Bitcoin (BCH) at my local wallet (yes, I do not trade anymore :) For this reason I do not want to invest my own BCH: I guess tippr analog will not be used widely at the social network (at least at the very beginning). I think about "analog of tippr" only like a tool for promotion BCH and new community at this point. For this reason, I will need to reward good users with BCH, which I do not have (because of this I'm looking to the second bot for BitcoinZ ) Therefore, I need funds for promo actions: some giveaways for reposts and other social promotion, maybe advertising.
That's all I wanted to say. I do not claim to be invested, but I propose to discuss this topic. If someone is interested, then you can donate. If you want to donate more or less large amount of funds, then you can contact me directly at PM and I will show you with proof of ownership my communities. This in some way confirms the seriousness of intentions. But again, I'm not ready to start until I do not have confidence that this is a worthwhile activity. I know from my experience that without funding it's not possible to raise such a community to the level of independent survival.
As alternative, I was thinking about launching my own coin for this project (analog of BitcoinZ). While it will be cheap or worthless it will be easier to integrate and take interest from newbies , but I do not want multiply entities. BCH is already better than the rest.
Thanks if you read this (I guess) not easy readable text.

Crypto currency wager - CNY % - 6 months - Bitcoin V Quark - 100k Quark on offer < if Quark is "finished" take my Quark..

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=746500.0
NOTE : this amount is not nothing for me this is how confident I am in Quark economic fundamentals, that i'm laying down this wager
if you are more confident of Bitcoin please take me up on it at the Address
Quark price - BTC38 - http://www.btc38.com/trade_en.html?btc38_trade_coin_name=qrk
0.038 CNY
Bitcoin Price - BTCe - https://btc-e.com/exchange/btc_cnh
3091.27 CNY
In 6 months from this post - which has appreciated more in %
on offer 100,000 Quark. ( which i will buy on the open market) ( or take from reserve)
So in Summary if someone was coming in new to Crypto and knew nothing about either and they had 1000 CNY (or anything) to invest which would make them a clear better % gain?
Quark or Bitcoin?
feel free to define any further details.

WizSec: Breaking open the MtGox case

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 78%. (I'm a bot)
We won't beat around the bush with it: Vinnik is our chief suspect for involvement in the MtGox theft.
In total some 300,000 BTC ended up on BTC-e, while other coins were deposited to other exchanges, including MtGox itself.
Some of the funds moved to BTC-e seem to have moved straight to internal storage rather than customer deposit addresses, hinting at a relationship between Vinnik and BTC-e. The stolen MtGox coins were not the only stolen coins handled by Vinnik; coins stolen from Bitcoinica, Bitfloor and several other thefts from back in 2011 and 2012 were all laundered through the same wallets.
Moving coins back onto MtGox was what let us identify Vinnik, as the MtGox accounts he used could be linked to his online identity "WME".
Having identified the actual transactions for the bulk of the stolen MtGox bitcoins, we traced them and clustered all addresses involved, quickly finding that other stolen coins were making their way into the same wallets.
As some coins were deposited back to MtGox, we could identify which accounts were used to receive them; two in particular were of interest, and were possible to link to the online identity "WME".

Will Crypto ultimately kill the banking industry? How are they going to react - sabotage?!

The benefits of crypto-currencies seem obvious - speed of transfer, reduced transaction cost, much reduced threat of manipulation by central governments, globally available etc. etc. (this is well documented elsewhere).
On the downside we have the question of taxation mechanisms which will need to be addressed - probably through declaration/documentation of crypto transactions I guess.
The one industry that is seriously and directly threatened by this is banking. We have already seen banks refusing to transfer fiat into crypto exchanges (e.g. http://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/1rfc6l/usaa_bank_refused_wire_transfer_to_btce/) - how do you guys see this playing out? How seriously could financial institutions affect crypto over time? Should the community be worried/prepared somehow?

What Is Litecoin & Differences Between Litecoin And Bitcoin

What is Litecoin?
Litecoin (LTC) is the second largest crypto currency only smaller than Bitcoin. Litecoin is the biggest of the so called altcoins and is similar to but with some distinct differences to Bitcoin (BTC). Litecoin was created by Charlie Lee, a former Google employee who goes by the screen name coblee, and was launched on October 7th 2011.
LTC is similar to BTC in that it uses a proof of work blockchain, difficulty adjusts every 2016 blocks, and rewards half about every 4 years.
LTC is different to BTC in that the LTC network aims to process blocks every 2.5 minutes compared to BTCs 10 minutes. This allows for faster confirmation times. LTC aims to produce 84 Million LTCs which is roughly 4 times as many coins as BTC will eventually produce. LTC uses an algorithm called Scrypt, and BTC uses SHA-256. Scrypt is roughly 1000 times slower than SHA256 which is why you see LTC mining speeds quoted in KH/s (Thousand hashes per second) vs BTCs MH/s (Million hashes per second).
LTC was originally designed so that it could be easily mined on CPUs and be resistant to mining on GPUs. With ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) having taken over the BTC mining world, a common misconception is that Scrypt is ASIC proof. Scrypt is only ASIC resistant just as it was deigned to be GPU resistant. What this all means is that eventually LTC will be able to be mined with ASICs but the increase in speed is not going to be anywhere near what it was with BTC and SHA-256. This fact means that GPU mining will not be wiped out as it was with BTC.
LTC uses addresses very similar to BTC addresses. They are a mix of 33 numbers and letters but always start with a L.
LTC is often described LTC as silver to BTCs gold. While some BTC enthusiasts dislike LTC and say it takes something away from BTC, alot of people disagree. LTC being a smaller and younger coin has the ability to change things and test new ideas. BTC has a much larger user base and larger team of developers so it can be harder to come to a consensus on changes with BTC. Litecoin devs have recently been helping develop both LTC and BTC by contributing bug fixes to the BTC-qt devs for inclusion in the Bitcoin-qt client.
LTCs native client is the Litecoin-qt application which is very similar to the Bitcoin-qt client. Litecoin-qt is available for Linux, Windows and Mac at the official Litecoin website. If you would like to see a guide on how to setup a Litecoin-qt wallet please see How To Create A Litecoin Wallet.
Alot of the same things that exist for BTC exist for LTC. Such as:
PaperWallets
Litecoin Block Explorer
Another Block Explorer
Litecoin Wiki
Litecoin Gambling
Litecoin Dice
Litecoin Mining Calculator
There are many exchanges that support trading LTC for other crypto currencies as well as USD. Some (but not all) exchanges are listed below.
BTC-e
OKCoin for China
Kraken
Bitfinex
Crypto-Trade
I do not endorse any of these exchanges. I am only listing them for information purposes only. As with anything in the crypto world please do your own research before doing any type of transaction.
Some links to the LTC community are:
LTC Forums
LTC Google+
And of course the LTC subreddit
A very popular chart website for LTC (and other coins).

Conclusion: they are highly motivated to continue normal operation.
Context: Warning: BTC-E selectively scamming.
It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own self-interest. We address ourselves not to their humanity but to their self-love, and never talk to them of our own necessities, but of their advantages” ― Adam Smith, An Inquiry into the Nature & Causes of the Wealth of Nations, Vol 1
