Does Bitpanda actually see the BEST token as Bitpanda's ecosystem and fuel, or does Bitpanda move the BEST token into the background? - Sieht Bitpanda den BEST Token tatsächlich als Bitpandas Ökosystem und Treibstoff, oder rückt Bitpanda den BEST Token immer mehr in den Hintergrund?

  I will make this contribution available in German and in English. However, I would like to expressly note that the translation in English was carried out with the help of a translator and may not reflect the original German version 1: 1. It would be commendable if many members take part in this communication, express their mood about the history of the BEST Token so far, or if Bitpanda itself provides a detailed opinion of its community.
 
Ich werde diesen Beitrag in deutsch sowie in englischer Sprache zur Verfügung stellen. Ich bitte jedoch ausdrücklich zu beachten, dass die Übersetzung in englisch mit Hilfe eines Translators erfolgt ist und gegebenenfalls nicht der deutschsprachigen Originalfassung 1:1 wiedergibt. Es wäre lobenswert, wenn sich viele Mitglieder an dieser Kommunikation beteiligen, ihre Stimmung zu dem bisherigen Werdegang des BEST Token kundtun oder wenn Bitpanda selbst hierzu eine ausführliche Stellungnahme seiner Community zur Verfügung stellt.
 
DEUTSCH:
 
Hallo Community, Hallo Bitpanda!
 
Seit der Ankündigung zum BEST IEO verfolge ich die Veränderungen und Fortschritte auf Bitpanda. Insbesondere beschäftige ich mich mit jenen, die in Verbindung mit dem BEST Token stehen. An dieser Stelle möchte ich festhalten, dass der BEST Token als „Treibstoff des Bitpanda-Ökosystems“ angepriesen wurde. In diesem Zusammenhang äußerte man sich, dass man „BEST intensiv nutzen werde“.
 
Mit einigen kürzlich durchgeführten Veränderungen auf Bitpanda und Bitpanda Pro, erweckt es allerdings für mich den Anschein, als rückt der BEST immer weiter in den Hintergrund, statt diesen als Ökosystem hervorzuheben. Vertrauen liegt im Detail und somit ist es meiner Auffassung nach enttäuschen, wenn im Nachgang Wortlaute (u.a. aus dem Visionpaper) auf Bitpanda.com abgeändert werden.
 
So erweckte es im VisionPaper für mich den Anschein, dass bereits zum Handelsstart und dem Halten einer Mindestanzahl von BEST (VIP-Level 1-3) geringere Einzahlungsgebühren als Vorteil angeboten werden.
 
Nun musste ich feststellen, dass man vor wenigen Tagen auf Bitpanda (https://www.bitpanda.com/de/best) den Wortlaut bei den Reward Levels abgeändert hat. Nach circa 7-8 Monaten hat man sich scheinbar dazu entschieden, ein „DEMNÄCHST“ vor die aufgeführten Vorteile zu setzen. So heißt es nun „Demnächst verfügbar: Geringere Einzahlungsgebühren bei Einzahlungen mit SOFORT oder Kreditkarte auf Bitpanda.“.
 
Auf der Bitpanda Startseite (https://www.bitpanda.com/de) hat man auch Aktualisierungen vorgenommen, aber scheinbar ist Bitpanda auch hier der BEST nicht würdig genug eingepflegt und genannt zu werde. So heißt es auf der Bitpanda Startseite:
 
„Kaufe und verkaufe jede unterstützte Kryptowährung, von Bitcoin bis Ethereum, Ripple, Pantos, Bitcoin Cash, IOTA, Litecoin, Komodo, EOS, Dash, OmiseGO, Augur, Stellar, 0x, NEM, ZCash, Tezos, Cardano, NEO, Ethereum Classic, Chainlink, Waves, Lisk, Tether, USD Coin, Cosmos, TRON, Basic Attention Token und Chiliz.“.
 
Weder wörtlich noch grafisch findet BEST hier seinen Platz. Und das als Token, der Bitpandas angekündigtes Ökosystem und den Treibstoff widerspiegeln soll. Da frage ich mich doch ernsthaft, ob mit „Treibstoff“ lediglich die erzielten Einnahmen durch den IEO gemeint waren, die Bitpanda nun als „Treibstoff“ dienen sollen um andere Projekte als den BEST zu pushen.
 
Eine weitere Veränderung ist im Bereich der unterstützten FIAT-Währungen zu finden. So hat man sich scheinbar dazu entschieden, bereits jetzt die türkische Lira als eine mögliche Einzahlungswährung grafisch abzubilden. Wörtlich wird diese jedoch noch nicht genannt. Da sollte man sich nun entscheiden, entweder nennt man diese nun auch wörtlich, wenn diese grafisch bereits abgebildet wird, oder man lässt diese sowohl wörtlich als auch grafisch weg, solange diese Option überhaupt nicht zur Verfügung steht. Erneut ein Schritt, der mehr Schein als sein erweckt, denn Einzahlungen per Lira sind eine Zukunftsvision von Bitpanda und stehen potenziellen Kunden derzeit noch nicht zur Verfügung. Diese Option wurde für das 2. Quartal angekündigt. Hiermit könnten erneut potenzielle Kunden auf Enttäuschung stoßen, da erneut etwas abgebildet oder beschrieben wird, das derzeit nicht geboten wird.
 
Kommen wir nun zu den Veränderungen in Bezug auf BEST im Vergleich zur Global Exchange und dem neuen Bitpanda Pro. Die Global Exchange stellte bereits wenig Werbefläche für den BEST zur Verfügung, jedoch wurde dem BEST eine entsprechende Fläche gewidmet um einigermaßen auf diesen Aufmerksam zu machen. Auf der Startseite von Bitpanda Pro findet man nun überhaupt keine Werbefläche für den BEST der einem direkt ins Auge fällt. Lediglich am unteren Ende der Bitpanda Pro Seite steht „Wann kann ich BEST verwenden, um eine Ermäßigung von 25% auf Tradinggebühren zu erhalten?“.
 
Zumal man meiner Ansicht nach mit der zukünftigen Vorgehensweise bei Bitpanda Pro von den ursprünglichen Visionen aus dem VisionPaper abweicht. Den dort wurde die Global Exchange angekündigt mit den Worten „Die hochmoderne Plattform macht alle digitalen Assets an der Bitpanda Global Exchange tradebar. Darüber hinaus wird sie auch als Vermittler fungieren, um Angebot und Nachfrage für die Bitpanda Plattform sicherzustellen.“.
 
In einem Zeitraum von mehr als 6 Monaten nach Handelsstart, wurden KEINE weiteren Traidingpaare der Exchange hinzugefügt und nun hat man sich entschieden dem Kind einen anderen Namen zu geben und sich auf FIAT-to-Krypto zu konzentrieren. Eine weitere persönliche Enttäuschung und aus meiner Sicht Abweichung der im VisonPaper erfolgten Aussagen.
 
Bitpanda schreibt in ihrer Ankündigung zum Tokenburn (Ende Januar 2020), dass man den rufen der Community folgen möchte und unter anderem sich deshalb dazu entschieden hat, den ersten Tokenburn von April 2020 auf Januar 2020 vorzuziehen. Betrachtet man das VisionPaper, war es jedoch eher ein Bestandteil der dort erfolgten Aussagen. In diesem heißt es nämlich „Wenn Bitpanda Nutzer Gebühren mit BEST zahlen, wird Bitpanda 25% des Betrags der BEST Einnahmen vierteljährlich zerstören (Token Burn). Dies passiert, bis 50% des kompletten BEST-Vorrates zerstört wurden.“ Da mit dem 30.10.2019 die Funktion zum Bezahlen der Gebühren mit BEST eingeführt wurde, fällt der darauf folgende Zeitraum „vierteljährlich“ auf den 30.01.2020.
 
Eine weitere Abweichung, auch wenn diese positiv erscheinen mag ist, dass man im Visionpaper von einer Zerstörung in Höhe von 25% spricht. Tatsächlich beruft man sich bei dem stattgefundenen Tokenburn nun auf „mindestens 25%“ und stellt somit gegenüber seinen Kunden keine Transparenz zur Verfügung, wie viele BEST (prozentual betrachtet) nun tatsächlich geburnt wurden.
 
In diversen Foren kann man aus den Beiträgen der Nutzer entnehmen, dass BEST nicht im Mittelpunkt von Bitpanda steht. Vorschläge wie BEST Banner auf den Bitpanda Startseiten hat man ignoriert. Nun konnte man jedoch in Form eines Banners auf den Bitpanda Startseiten eine Werbefläche erstellen, um den Schritt der Expansion in die Türkei jedem Besucher einzublenden, bzw. dauerhaft im oberen Bereich der Startseiten darzustellen.
 
BEST bietet seinen Nutzern auch bislang KEINERLEI Vorteile die es notwenig erscheinen lassen, BEST in einer höheren Stückzahl zu halten. Die angepriesenen VIP-Level in denen 5.000, 50.000 oder 500.000 BEST gehalten werden müssen, sind auch nach mehr als 6 Monaten ohne Vorteile für die Hodler. Bislang steht lediglich die Verwendung des BEST zur Verfügung, mit dem man seine Traidinggebühren bezahlen kann. Um 50% Rabatt auf die Traidinggebühren zu erhalten spielt es meiner Erfahrung nach keine Rolle, ob man 10, 100, 1.000 oder 100.000 BEST hält. Jeder der auch nur einen BEST hält, erhält 50% Rabatt auf die Traidinggebühren. Es ist demnach absolut ausreichend, wenn man lediglich die Anzahl an BEST hält, die notwendig sind um eventuell anfallende Traidinggebühren mit BEST zahlen zu können. Wo wird der Anreiz geschaffen, sich mit BEST einzudecken?
 
Mit dem Tokenburn (Ende Januar 2020) hat man nun angekündigt, dass man bald mit dem BEST geringere Einzahlungsgebühren erhält. Eine Funktion die bereits im VisionPaper vor dem Handelsstart angepriesen wurde. Auch weitere Funktionen wurden hierbei entsprechend angekündigt. Aber auch mehrere Wochen nach dieser Ankündigung erleben die BEST Kunden keine Umsetzung dieser Worte.
 
Man führt auf Bitpanda Pro neue Fiat-to-Krypto Traidingpaare (CHF) ein, jedoch werden der Treibstoff und das Ökosystem selbst, nicht als CHF/BEST Traidingpaar eingepflegt.
 
Es mag sein, dass einige Situationen sehr kritisch durchleuchtet wurden. Aber die geschilderten Situationen sind jetzt auch nicht von der Hand zu weisen. Ein Ökosystem rückt nicht immer weitere in den Hintergrund und wird zur Nebensache. Ein Treibstoff sollte zünden und nicht bremsen. Als BEST Kunde bin ich über die bisherigen Entwicklungen, getroffenen Aussagen im VisionPaper, angekündigten Visionen und deren tatsächlicher Umsetzung mehr als enttäuscht. Bitpanda äußert sich stets dahingehend, dass der BEST Kurs nicht von Bitpanda beeinflusst werden kann, sondern ein Resultat aus Angebot und Nachfrage ist. Allerdings liegt es in der Hand von Bitpanda entsprechend Einfluss auf den BEST Kurs zu nehmen, in dem man liefert was man mit „Ökosystem, Treibstoff, VIP-Level“ versprochen oder angekündigt hat. Der BEST muss nun endlich in den Mittelpunkt gerückt werden, er muss auf den eigenen Startseiten deutlich hervorgehoben werden, er muss Vorteile für die BEST Hodler bieten und nicht jedem Kunden der sich lediglich mit 10,00 Euro BEST eindeckt und Bitpanda nicht zu einem der erfolgreichsten IEO in Europa verholfen hat. Bitpanda ist seinen Investoren und IEO Einsteigern etwas schuldig und zwar einen BEST der im Mittelpunkt steht, einen BEST der ausschließlich beim Halten einer bestimmten Anzahl den Bitpanda / BEST Kunden einen Vorteil bietet. Exklusive Vorteile, Partnerschaften, Gutscheine, Goodies, Zugänge, u.v.m.! Schafft Vertrauen und zeigt euren Kunden endlich, dass der BEST nicht in den Hintergrund rückt, sondern die Aufmerksamkeit erhält, mit der er im VisionPaper euren Kunden schmackhaft gemacht wurde.
 
 
ENGLISH (Translator):
 
Hello community, Hello Bitpanda!
 
Since announcing the BEST IEO, I've been following the changes and advances on Bitpanda. In particular, I deal with those related to the BEST token. At this point I would like to state that the BEST token was touted as "fuel for the Bitpanda ecosystem". In this context, it was stated that "BEST will be used intensively".
 
However, with some recent changes to Bitpanda and Bitpanda Pro, it seems to me that the BEST is moving into the background rather than highlighting it as an ecosystem. Trust is in the details and therefore, in my opinion, it is disappointing if wording (e.g. from the vision paper) is subsequently changed on Bitpanda.com.
 
So it seemed to me in VisionPaper that even at the start of trading and holding a minimum number of BEST (VIP levels 1-3), lower deposit fees are offered as an advantage.
 
Now I had to find out that a few days ago the wording of the reward levels was changed on Bitpanda (https://www.bitpanda.com/de/best). After about 7-8 months, it appears that the decision has been made to put a "COMING SOON" ahead of the advantages listed. It is now called "Coming soon: Lower deposit fees for deposits with SOFORT or credit card on Bitpanda."
 
Updates have also been made on the Bitpanda homepage (https://www.bitpanda.com/de), but apparently Bitpanda is not worthy of the BEST token being entered and named here either. So it says on the Bitpanda homepage:
 
“Buy and sell any supported cryptocurrency, from Bitcoin to Ethereum, Ripple, Pantos, Bitcoin Cash, IOTA, Litecoin, Komodo, EOS, Dash, OmiseGO, Augur, Stellar, 0x, NEM, ZCash, Tezos, Cardano, NEO, Ethereum Classic , Chainlink, Waves, Lisk, Tether, USD Coin, Cosmos, TRON, Basic Attention Token and Chiliz.".
 
BEST has no place here either literally or graphically. And that as a token that is supposed to reflect Bitpanda's announced ecosystem and the fuel. So I seriously ask myself whether "fuel" only meant the income generated by the IEO, which Bitpanda should now serve as "fuel" to push projects other than BEST.
 
Another change can be found in the area of supported FIAT currencies. So it seems that the decision has already been made to graphically depict the Turkish lira as a possible deposit currency. However, this is not yet mentioned literally. You should now decide whether you want to name it literally if it is already shown graphically, or you can leave it out both literally and graphically as long as this option is not available at all. Another step that gives the impression of being more than real, because deposits made with Lira are a future vision of Bitpanda and are not yet available to potential customers. This option was announced for the second quarter. This could again disappoint potential customers, as something is depicted or described that is not currently available.
 
Now we come to the changes regarding BEST compared to the Global Exchange and the new Bitpanda Pro. The Global Exchange already made little advertising space available for the BEST, but a corresponding area was dedicated to the BEST to draw some attention to this. On the homepage of Bitpanda Pro there is no advertising space for the BEST that catches your eye. Only at the bottom of the Bitpanda Pro page is "When can I use BEST to get a 25% discount off trading fees?"
 
Especially since in my opinion the future approach at Bitpanda Pro differs from the original visions from the VisionPaper. The Global Exchange was announced there with the words “The ultra-modern platform makes all digital assets tradable on the Bitpanda Global Exchange. It will also act as an intermediary to ensure supply and demand for the Bitpanda platform. ”.
 
In a period of more than 6 months after the start of trading, NO further trading pairs were added to the exchange and now it has been decided to give the child a different name and to focus on FIAT-to-crypto. Another personal disappointment and in my view a deviation from the statements made in the VisonPaper.
 
In its announcement about Tokenburn (end of January 2020), Bitpanda writes that it wants to follow the calls of the community and, among other things, has therefore decided to move the first Tokenburn from April 2020 to January 2020. If you look at the VisionPaper, it was more a part of the statements made there. It says, "If Bitpanda users pay fees with BEST, Bitpanda will destroy 25% of the amount of BEST revenue quarterly (Token Burn). This happens until 50% of the entire BEST inventory has been destroyed. ”Since the function for paying the fees with BEST was introduced on October 30, 2019, the following period falls“ quarterly ”on January 30, 2020.
 
Another deviation, even if this may seem positive, is that the vision paper speaks of a destruction of 25%. In fact, the Tokenburn that has taken place now refers to “at least 25%” and thus does not provide any transparency to its customers as to how many BEST (as a percentage) have actually been destroyed.
 
In various forums, it can be seen from the user contributions that BEST is not the focus of Bitpanda. Suggestions like BEST banners on the Bitpanda homepage have been ignored. However, it was now possible to create an advertising space in the form of a banner on the Bitpanda start pages in order to display the step of expanding into Turkey to every visitor, or to display it permanently in the upper area of the start page.
 
BEST has so far NOT offered its users any advantages that make it seem necessary to keep BEST in a larger number. The advertised VIP levels, in which 5,000, 50,000 or 500,000 BEST have to be held, are without advantages for the Hodler even after more than 6 months. So far, only the BEST is available, with which you can pay your traiding fees. In my experience, to get a 50% discount on the traiding fees, it doesn't matter whether you hold 10, 100, 1,000 or 100,000 BEST. Everyone who holds even a BEST receives a 50% discount on the traiding fees. It is therefore absolutely sufficient if you only keep the number of BEST that are necessary to be able to pay any applicable traiding fees with BEST. Where is the incentive created to stock up with BEST?
 
With the Tokenburn (end of January 2020), it has now been announced that soon you will receive lower deposit fees with the BEST. A function that was advertised in the VisionPaper before the start of trading. Other functions have also been announced accordingly. But even several weeks after this announcement, BEST customers do not see these words implemented.
 
Bitpanda Pro introduces new fiat-to-crypto traiding pairs (CHF), but the fuel and the ecosystem itself are not included as CHF / BEST traiding pairs.
 
It may be that some situations have been examined very critically. But the situations described cannot be dismissed out of hand either. One ecosystem does not always take a back seat and becomes a minor matter. A fuel should ignite and not brake. As a BEST customer, I am more than disappointed with the developments to date, statements made in the VisionPaper, announced visions and their actual implementation. Bitpanda always states that the BEST course cannot be influenced by Bitpanda, but is a result of supply and demand. However, it is up to Bitpanda to influence the BEST course, in which you deliver what you have promised or announced with "ecosystem, fuel, VIP level". The BEST must finally be brought into focus, it must be clearly highlighted on its own homepage, it must offer advantages for the BEST Hodler and not every customer who only buys EUR 10.00 and Bitpanda is not one of the most successful Helped IEO in Europe. Bitpanda owes something to its investors and IEO beginners, namely a BEST that takes center stage, a BEST that only offers Bitpanda / BEST customers an advantage if they keep a certain number. Exclusive benefits, partnerships, vouchers, goodies, access, and much more! Build trust and finally show your customers that BEST does not move into the background, but receives the attention with which it was made palatable to your customers in VisionPaper.

Tarkov Overview - What is Escape from Tarkov?

Escape from Tarkov is a tactical, realistic, FPS with MMO elements developed by Battlestate Games. It is currently in closed Beta. The game features several maps in which your primary character, your PMC, goes into Raids in order to find and salvage loot and useful equipment to survive and thrive in Tarkov. Death is very punishing in Tarkov. If you die you lose everything you had on you when you die (with the exception of what's inside your Container and your melee weapon) including any equipment you brought with you or what you found inside the Raid.
Enemies can be players (PMCs) or 'Scavs' (Scavengers) that are either controlled by AI or by players. Unlike many shooters, AI enemies in Tarkov are deadly - they can and will kill you on sight.
It features beautiful and immersive environments, intricate and in-depth weapon modification system, a complex health system, attention to detail with loot placement, and options for combat. Do you want to play slow and stealthy, to avoid fights, or set up a deadly ambush on an unwary foe? Or do you prefer to raw combat, where only your quick wit, placements of shots, and tenaciousness determines who gets out alive? It's your Tarkov. You make the rules.

Tarkov Resources - Useful links

I take no credit or responsibility for any of the content in these links. To the best of my knowledge, these are updated consistently and are accurate, but user beware.

Quick-Reference Ammo Chart

Created by SirKilljoy, you can find it here. Note: As of 6/2/19, Outdated. Searching for updated file. Send if you have one!
An updated ammo chart can be found here. It's not fancy or quick reference though. Sorry!

Tarkov Wiki

Absolutely fantastic resource. You can visit them here.
It is a massive collection of everything that we players have been able to find.
They contain trades, user-created maps, lists of ammo, parts, weapons, loot, etc. If it's in the game, it's on the Wiki, somewhere.
I highly recommend opening the wiki page for the Map that you plan on raiding in.
Factory
Customs

Map Keys and You

Huge collection of all the keys in the game. These are also on the wiki, but this page has them all on one page, and tries to inform the user if the key is worth keeping or using.
Check it out here.
This section is open to revision. Mention me in a thread (or in the comments below) about a resource and I'll see about adding it here.

Tarkov's Maps

Tarkov features several maps - ranging from wide, beautiful vistas to ruined factory districts, to an abandoned laboratory where illegal experiments were being conducted. It is important to learn the maps you intend to play. In order to keep your gear, you must 'extract' at one of your designated exfiltration points. Not all exfils will be active every game, and some are conditional.
To see what extracts are available to you, double tap 'O' to show raid time and your exfils. If it has a ???? it might not be open.
You can load Raids in an OFFLINE status, which allows you to explore the map or practice against AI without losing gear.
You do not keep any EXP or gear you find in the OFFLINE Raid, though.
To access OFFLINE Raids, head into a Raid normally until you see this screen.
Simply check 'Enable OFFLINE mode for this Raid' and you're good to go! You even have a choice on whether or not to add AI. You can also control how many AI enemies spawn, fewer than normal or a great deal more! You can even make Scavs fight each other. (Framerates beware.)

Factory

Gate 3 Extract
A small, fast-paced map that was primarily created for PvP. Scavs spawn in all the time. Very close quarters, shotguns and SMGs tend to dominate here. PMCs can only access one Exit (Gate 3) without the Factory Exit Key. Good place to go if you need PMC kills as action is pretty much guaranteed. It is recommend NOT to bring in a lot of gear to Factory until you are experienced.

Customs

Extract map
A fairly large map that was recently expanded. Essentially, players spawn either on 'warehouse' or 'boiler (stacks)' side. If you see a large red warehouse near you (Customs Warehouse), then you spawned on the warehouse side. If you don't, you likely spawned near Boiler side.
The location for most quests in the game. Finding geared players here is very easy, so if you are low level attempting to complete early quests (like The Bronze Pocketwatch) it's recommend to AFK in the raid for 20 mins or so, as most players will have moved out of spawns and hit the 'hot' areas already, so it's less likely to be contested, so you may grab your quest item(s) and proceed immediately to Exfil.
Contains a Scav Boss, which is a group of scavs with above-average to high-tier gear that has a chance to spawn in Dorms or Gas Station.

Woods

Woods Map with Exfil
A very large map that is mostly just a large forest, with the occasional bunker, and the Lumber Mill in the center. The Lumber Mill is the primary point of interest, as it contains a couple quest locations and is the primary location to farm Scavs, as Scavs killed on woods is the only known location to find the Arsenal Key, which is the rarest and most valuable key in the game at the moment.
Since the map is so large and open, sniper rifles with scopes usually reign king here. You will see a lot of players with Mosin rifles as they are a cheap way to train the Sniper skill (for a quest later on) and are capable of killing geared players and scavs alike.
Overall, not usually very populated. An early quest from Prapor sends you here to kill a number of Scavs. A good map to learn the game, as although the loot is not fantastic, you can get experience with how the game runs and operates while fighting AI and possibly getting lucky with a key find off a scav.

Shoreline

Shoreline Map, with Loot, Exfil, etc
A very large map, notorious for its FPS hit. Generally speaking, one of the better maps for loot.
The primary point of interest is the Resort, but scavs spawn there, and is primarily occupied by hatchlings (players only with hatchet, ie melee weapon) and geared players. Resort has great loot, but requires keys to access most of it.
A great map to learn though from new players as the outskirts still contains plenty of loot and combat opportunities with AI scavs. You can hit Villa, Scav Island, Weather station, Docks, etc and come out with a backpack full of valuable gear fairly easily.
Location of many quests, including a large quest chain where players are required to kill many, many, scavs on Shoreline.

Interchange

Detailed map
Great, great loot area, but very complex map. Doesn't run very well on old computers. Features a mostly-binary exfil system like Shoreline, but.. kinda worse. Exfil camping is fairly common on this map. Huge map with multiple floors and many many different stores. Communication with teammates is a challenge on this map, but the map is also fantastically detailed.
This map features a lot of loot that depends on the kind of store you're in. It's a great place to farm rare barter materials which are valuable to sell on the Flea market or to use for quests. An early quest (from Ragman) sends you here to kill a large amount of Scavs. I'd recommend getting Ragman to level 2 and accepting his quest before going to Interchange, as getting this quest done can take a while as it is and you want all scav kills to count towards progress.

The Lab ('Labs')

Here's a map.
This is a very complex map, so I highly recommend you read the Wiki article and look at all the maps to get an idea of what it's like.

INSURANCE DOES NOT WORK ON THIS MAP.

If you purchase insurance and lose your items on this map, doesn't matter from whom, you will not get them back.

LABS IS NOT LIKE OTHER MAPS. READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY.

Labs is by far the most lucrative map to play at the moment. You can easily earn several million roubles per hour by killing Raiders (Juiced-up scavs that are ONLY on Labs), looting their equipment, then running to one of the many, many extracts. Extract camping is hard to pull off and pretty much not viable on Labs.
DISCLAIMER: Labs, like much of Tarkov, is under constant development, so issues may be fixed or created without warning. Always check patch notes!

Raiders

Raiders are the avatars of Death in Tarkov, clad in USEC and BEAR hats, high-end armor, and plenty of firepower to boot. Do not fight Raiders directly. They WILL kill you. Raiders are absolutely broken this patch, and are getting fixed next patch to help fix their exploits of both poor AI and how they're a little.. insane. At the moment, the only way to kill raiders is to camp a hallway, room, or door, and attract the scavs to you, headshotting them the moment they enter before they have a chance to lock onto you.
Raiders can see you through and shoot you through surfaces you cannot.
This means you have to be very careful when engaging them. They are also often equipped with very high-end ammo, meaning that most faceshields (even Killa helmets) can be useless vs a Scav who spawned with 'big boy' ammo, 7N39. They can shoot your head if it's even slightly visible. They can prone instantly, as they have no ping. If they drop without slumping over, get to cover immediately.
Typically, strategies to farm Labs (barring rushing certain rooms for static loot) involve rushing a camp-spot and baiting raiders to your location and taking them out quickly, efficiently, and with no mercy. There are many locations to camp, and since there's so many exfiltrations, it's ultimately up to personal preference.
Raiders often spawn with armor (often Troopers and Gen4s) a rig (Sniper or Ana Alpha rig, usually) and a variety helmets and weapons. Always check the ammo the raiders spawn with. If they spawn with ANYTHING other than PS (and 12 gauge) LOOT IT! You can right click their magazine and hit 'unload ammo' to get the ammo without having to grab the mags, which saves space.
BS, BT, BP, 7N39, etc can be worth several hundred roubles a round on the market. They're extremely valuable.
Additionally, Raiders spawn IFAKS, Morphine, and grenades (F-1 & Flashbangs (Zarya)) with regularity. They can also spawn with random consumables and large clumps of cash in their pockets as well. They can spawn several backpacks, most of them being rather large, if relatively uncommon.
Additionally, Raiders can have American names, breach doors, and mumble as if they are a USEC PMC because some of the Raiders are actually USECs. You will learn with experience what the Scavs will or will not say.
Experience Farming on Labs
Labs is perhaps the best place to farm experience on the current patch.
Killing a Raider with a headshot awards 1100 Experience.
This does not include any looting, inspection (searching bodies), examine, streak, or other experience.
Killing a large sequence of Raiders gives additional bonus experience in the form of Streak rewards, usually 100 bonus exp per additional kill.
Surviving the raid multiplies all of these sources of experience by 1.5x
Changes coming to Labs
Disclaimer: I am not a BSG developer or employee. This is what I have seen on this subreddit and heard elsewhere. Some might be purely rumor, but other points are confirmed by Nikita.
Labs is currently undergoing an overhaul. At the moment, you require consumable Keycards to enter Labs, which may be purchased from Therapist or bartered Mechanic in exchange for 1 Bitcoin starting at Loyalty Level II. They can also be found in drawers and jackets. Scavs can drop permanent keycards that replace most keys used in the previous iteration of labs.
The full extent of the changes coming is not known.
Remember, you can load a map in OFFLINE mode to practice against bots or to learn the map without fear of losing gear.

Tarkov's Health System

Tarkov Wiki Article
Tarkov has a very advanced health system, and while it might seem overwhelming at first, you'll get the hang of it rather quickly. It features a very wide variety of effects and injury, including hydration, energy, blood pressure, blood loss, fractures, contusion, intoxication, exhaustion, tremors and more.
Not all of the Health System is implemented yet. Expect changes!
Your character (PMC, or otherwise) has a combined Health of 435. Each of his limbs have separate health. Taking damage to a limb that reduces it to 0 'blacks' that limb. Blacked limbs are a problem. They greatly impair the activities your PMC performs, and taking damage in a blacked limb amplifies the damage by a multiplier and spreads that damage among your other non-black limbs equally. You cannot heal a blacked limb.
Notes: Bloodloss applies damage to the affected limb and can be spread like other damage to a blacked limb. Treat immediately. Also causes significant dehydration!
Losing a limb applies additional effects. Fractures also apply these effects but not the damage amplification (Except for damage if running on fractured leg.)
Dehydration is what happens when your Hydration level reaches 0. You can view your Hydration level in your gear page, at the bottom left. Becoming dehydrated is extremely bad. You take constant damage. Taking dehydration damage can kill you if you have a black chest or head.
Head/Chest: Bullet damage resulting in losing your head or chest is instant death. Note: Bloodloss resulting in your Head/Chest being black does not result in death, but any damage to them beyond that point will! A back chest will causes you to cough (much like your stomach!)
Painkillers: Prevents coughing that comes from your chest. Doesn't help otherwise.
Stomach: Massively increased rate of dehydration and energy loss. You must find liquids or exit the Raid soon. Additionally, your PMC will cough sputter loudly, attracting attention.
Painkillers: Significantly reduces the frequency and volume of the coughs.
Arms: Makes activities like searching, reloading, etc, take additional time, as well as adding a sway, reducing accuracy. Arms have a .7x damage multiplier.
Painkillers: Reduces sway, removes debuff Pain.
Legs: Blacked legs cause your PMC to stumble and be unable to run. Blacked legs have a 1x damage multiplier.
Painkillers: Allows you to walk at full speed and to run.
WARNING: Running while your legs are blacked or fractured WILL DAMAGE YOU.
Health Items
Tarkov features many health items - 'Aid' items, which can be used to restore your characters health and to fix ailments or injuries he receives as the result of combat or mishaps. The two most important health conditions to consider are bloodloss and fractures, which have both been covered above. Some food items may have ancillary effects, such as losing hydration.
Since in the current patch the only ailments to worry about are bleeding and fractures, it changes which health items are most necessary. We'll go over them below.

Health Restoration

Medical Items on Wiki
AI-2 medkit
The newb's medical kit. You receive several of these when you start Tarkov - they'll already be in your stash. Available from Level I Therapist, they are cheap and effective way of healing early in the game. They will not stop bloodloss. Because of this, you also need to bring bandages or a higher-grade medical kit.
Affectionately called 'little cheeses' by the Tarkov community. Using it takes 2 seconds, and because of how cheap it is, it's often brought in by higher level players to supplement their healing without draining their main kit (which is capable of healing bloodloss or sometimes fractures). Due to its short use time, it's often very useful during combat as you can take cover and quickly recover damage taken to a vital limb.
Bandages
The newb's bloodloss solution. Available from Therapist at Level I. A better version, the Army Bandage is available at Level II, after a quest. Mostly obsolete after unlocking the Car Medical kit. Activating takes 4 seconds, and removes bloodloss to one limb.
Splint
The newb's solution to fractures. Cheap, takes five seconds to use, and takes up 1 slot. Not generally recommended to take because fractures effects can be greatly mitigated with the use of Painkillers. Available from Therapist at Level I, no quest needed.
Car Medical Kit
The newb's first real medical solution. Available LL1 as a barter (2 Duct Tape) and available for Roubles after completing Therapist's second quest. Has a larger health pool than AI-2's (220, vs AI-2's 100), and removes bloodloss. Takes up a 1x2 slot, so requires to be placed in a tactical rig in order to be used effectively. Cheap and fairly efficient, takes a standard 4 seconds to use. Rendered effectively obsolete when the Salewa is unlocked.
Salewa
Good medkit for use in mid and end-game. Contains 400 total health and can remove bloodloss. Relatively expensive at 13k roubles per kit, though. Same size as the Car medical kit, so requires a tactical rig to use effectively. Because Tarkov does not currently have effects like Toxication in the game at the moment, this kit is favored by most players who go into a raid with at least a moderate level of gear.
Unlocked at Therapist Level II after completing a level 10 Prapor quest, Postman Pat Part II.
IFAK
Fantastic medical kit, and is the one preferred by most players. Features 300 health and the ability to remove bloodloss and a host of other negative effects that are not yet implemented into the game. It does not, however, remove fractures. Taking up only a single slot, it is favored by players in all stages of gear, and it is recommend to carry one in your Secure Container in case of emergencies. Is available at Therapist Level II for a barter (Sugar + Sodium), and may be purchased for Roubles at Level III after completing Healthcare Privacy, Part I.
It is a fairly expensive kit, but due to its durability, its small size, and ability to remove bloodloss, it is a very common medical item used by players of all levels.
Grizzly
The 'big daddy' medical kit, boasting an impressive total health resource of 1800. It is also a very large kit, taking up 4 slots (2x2) - in order to be able to use this quickly, it would require specialized tactical rigs that feature a 2x2 slot. It removes all negative effects (some costing HP resource), including fractures.
Used by highly-geared players who intend on staying in raids for an extended period of time, or by players with additional Secure Container space available in case of emergencies. It is available for barter at Therapist Level II, and purchase at Therapist Level 4.

Pain Management

Using any of these items results in your character being 'On Painkillers' which allows you to sprint on fractured and blacked legs, as well as reducing effects of fractures and blacked limbs, and removing the debuff Pain. Essentially, the only difference between most of these items are the speed of use, price, availability, and duration of the effect.
Analgin Painkillers
The holy grail of pain medication. With the recent changes, "Painkillers" now have 4 total uses, not 1. The total duration is now greater than Morphine and less risk of waste. Takes a short time to use, and is available from Therapist Level 1 for both barter and Roubles.
Morphine
Quick application of painkillers. Favored by some highly geared players as it has greater usability in combat then it's typical counterpart, Painkillers. Has a longer duration, but only one use. Is required for a fairly early Therapist (and a late Peacekeeper) Quest, so it is recommend to hoard 10 of them, then sell the rest unless you intend on using them. They are worth a good amount to Therapist and take up little space so they are a valuable loot item. Available from Therapist for Roubles at Level 4, after completing Healthcare Privacy, Part 3.
Augmentin
Basically a cheaper Morphine. One use, 260s. Not recommended over Painkillers due to its cost. No current barter for this item, so usually it's just a fairly expensive, small loot item to sell to Therapist when found.
Ibuprofen
Powerful painkiller. Lasts 600 seconds and has 12 uses. However, it is not recommended to use it as a Painkiller. It is very valuable because it cannot be purchased from Dealers, it must be found, and it is a barter component to late-game containers, the Keytool and THICC Items Case.
Vaseline
Powerful medical item. Cannot be purchased from dealers. Has 10 uses. Removes Pain.
Golden Star Balm
Fairly useful medical item. It can remove Pain and Contusion (not a big deal of a debuff, goes away on its own shortly) and provides a small bonus to hydration and energy. However, because Hydration is usually easy to restore (Liquids are easy to find as 'common' or 'trash' tier loot), and Energy at the moment can't run to 0 within current Raid timers, it is Recommended to just to sell to Therapist as a Loot item.
Medical Injectors are not covered here. Essentially, they are powerful but niche items with strong side effects. Most recommended use is to store them in your Secure Container and sell them either on the Flea Market or to Therapist for roubles.
To be able to Hotkey a medicine item, they must be in a tactical rig or your pockets.

Tarkov's Quest, Progression, and Experience Systems

Tarkov features a very immersive progression system where your main character (PMC) is going into raids to acquire loot - goods that can be sold for a profit to other players, to Dealers (NPC Merchants), or used to fulfill quest requirements in order to complete them and receive your rewards. Additionally, your main character will increase their prowess in a number of skills, which increases everything from how much they can run, increases the ease of which recoil can be controlled, and even how far you can throw grenades. These are referred to 'soft skills.'
Additionally, your PMC is assigned a Level. You can increase your Level by earning Experience - which is rewarded by performing numerous tasks throughout the Raid, completing quests, examining new items, killing other players and Scavs, etc. Successfully extracting from a raid will increase the experience you earn from the raid via a multiplier.
Increasing your PMC's level will allow you to complete additional quests, which increases your Reputation with certain Dealers (and may reduce your Reputation with others) allowing you access to better equipment to purchase. Additionally, completing quests will often reward you with large sums of currency and sometimes equipment, and certain quests unlock items for purchase from that dealer.
A Dealer's arsenal of available weapons, ammo, mods, medication, containers, and etc to purchase by you is determined by their Loyalty Level - or LL, for short. Certain Dealers specialize in different kinds of equipment, and they will pay different rates or straight up not buy particular items. In a future release, eventually Dealers will offer discounts to the player based off their Loyalty Level.
Article on Dealers

Increasing Loyalty Level

Increasing your Trader's loyalty level is extremely important to your progression and overall success in Tarkov. Being able to purchase better Ammo and Equipment is essential to being able to fight other players and secure their loot for your own. Owning Prepare for Escape and Edge of Darkness (EoD) editions of Escape from Tarkov will increase your starting Reputations with Traders. It is unclear if this change will stay after the game's full release.
Typically though, you need three things to increase your Trader's level.
  • Reputation
This is accomplished via quests. Completing a quest will reward you with an increase in the quest givers' reputation, sometimes an increase in another trader's reputation, and sometimes will reduce the Reputation of another trader. Not all Traders need a certain level of Reputation to increase their loyalty Level to II. Peacekeeper and Ragman, for example, just need you to spend a certain amount of money with them.
  • Character Level and Experience Gain
The primary gate behind your trade level (and thus your overall economy and gear leverage) is your Character Level. You increase this by gaining Experience. The easiest way to gain experience is to Loot high value areas, fight players, and kill scavs while completing quests. Generally speaking, your level will advance as you play the game at a moderate pace. One way to farm experience though is to avoid looting all-together and just focus on killing a large number of scavs from a safe distance, after learning where they tend to spawn on any given map. This patch however, labs is fantastic for experience gain. (See above.) Another strategy (albeit one that takes longer) is to loot everything, then drop what you don't want. You gain experience for finding items and picking them up, so picking them up to drop them is technically the best way to gain the most exp per kill.
You can receive additional bonuses to Experience earned. Successfully extracting will increase your experience by a multiplier, typically 1.5x the experience gained during the raid, escaping also rewards a 300 exp Escape bonus which is added to your total before the multiplier is applied.
You can also receive experience bonuses for Exploration, so visiting different parts of the map will reward you with sums of experience, usually 100 to 300 or so. Killing multiple enemies in a row will reward you with Streaks, whose rewards increase as you get more kills. Getting a kill with a Headshot also significantly improves experience gain from kills. You also receive a (very small) bonus when you survive consecutive raids.
Note: Completing a Raid too early (via extraction) will cause you to receive a Run-Through status, which reduces experience earned in that raid by 50%.
Most Quests require you to be a certain level to unlock, and upon completion rewards you with a lot of exp and usually the ability to purchase specific equipment.
  • Money Spent
This is pretty self-explanatory. As mentioned above, Peacekeeper and Ragman can be increased easily just be selling and buying from them. If you need to artifically inflate the amount spent, a good idea is to purchase a large amount of cheap items from them and sell them back to the Trader. You still take a significant loss, usually around 50-60% per purchase, but since the money spent counts both items sold to the vendor and purchases, you get about 140-150% credit per item at about half the cost.

Selling Efficiency

Not all dealers pay the same for certain items. It is important to note that a lot of this is my personal experience, and prices can fluctuate as the Developers may change them for any reason. Use your own common sense and check various dealers before selling particularly lucrative items.

Prapor

Sells AKs, Magazines, many different Ammo types, Grenades, and weapon modifications. I don't tend to sell to him very often, as he doesn't pay the highest for any items that I have personally seen and because you tend to buy most Ammo and mags from him it's not a particular issue to level him up with money spent.

Therapist

Sells medical supplies, food and drink, and storage cases, which are items that effectively increase the size of your stash because they have more space inside than they take up. Most storage items are restricted to certain item types. Pays most for items like Keys, Statues, Rolers, Bitcoin, etc. Many of these items should be sold on the market instead of to her, but often times it's not worth the hassle.

Fence

Pays least for items, sells items for more than other Dealers. Items other players have sold will appear here. Only sell items to Fence that other dealers will not take! Basically a placeholder for an expanded Market.

Skier

Sells various weapons, mods, ammo, Euros, and containers. Pays most for items like Armor, backpacks, headgear, facemasks, flashlights, sights, etc. It is important to note, that Skier will not buy Weapons or most Mods. That means for things like flashlights, you have to take the flashlights/sights off the mount or rail in order for him to buy them, but he pays the best.

Peacekeeper

Deals entirely in Western equipment, UN armor, helmets, etc. Will buy most items, but will pay USD for them. Deals entirely in USD. One good way to get his money spent requirement is just to buy USD, which is used for a later quest from Skier, which unlocks his quest chain. He has a lot of good deals, experiment for yourself. At the moment his MP5 for 10 'bars' knives (scav knives) is an exceptionally good deal and easy to accomplish for new players.

Mechanic

Sells mostly completed weapons with various modifications and unique names, and mods. Sells magazines and some ammo. Offers containers as you progress. His quests are easy to complete, but often are money dumps in exchange for large sums of EXP more than anything else. Pays the most for modifications (except for sights and suppressors) and stripped guns.

Ragman

Sells backpacks, armor, tactical vests, and helmets mostly. Offers aesthetic clothing. Can obtain LL2 by just purchasing from him, does not require reputation. In fact, his first quest tasks you with that very objective. As far as I can see, he does not pay the most for any items in particular. But he is a very useful merchant once you have him at level 2. He will sell Scav Backpacks, which are an extremely efficient backpack to use as it's fairly large but very cheap.
Rule of Thumb for selling items at most value
Weapons: Strip the weapon! Take apart ALL pieces of it (including gas tubes, separating flashlights from ring mounts, etc), sell what you can to Skier. For the rest, sell to Mechanic.
Keys, Food, Medical Items, Statues, Bitcoin, Rolers, etc: Therapist or the Market. For items like this, ALWAYS check the Market first! A lot of these kinds of items are in valuable trades or are required for quests; this means that other players are often willing to pay more for them, above trader prices.

Continued below in a comment, due to character limit.

My Personal Reviews of IPTV services I've tried

Hi everyone. Figured i'd add my own honest review of services I've tried so as to help those that might be looking for an iptv provider to use. I cut the cable completely since Aug of 2015. I'll list the services I've used in order of date used and subscription length. Hopefully i'll keep updating this list as I go.
I own an Element Ti4 android box and a HTPC windows 10 PC both running the latest version of kodi with an 8MB connection.

Predominantly my focus was on USA English channels, Sports (NBA, NFL, MMA & Boxing), Kids cartoons and News.

1. NFPS (1 year subscription. Bought 2 subs, One for the kids) = This was my first foray into the paid subscriptions. I was using their free service for serveral months and decided to subscribe when they went paid. They have an extensive channel lineup with all the major NFL, NBA, Tennis, Boxing and MMA channels that I required. None of them are HD. 480p at best. Setup is horrible and not for novices. Whenever they make a change to their servers, you get NO COMMUNICATION from them whatsoever. You have to be trolling the iptv forums to find out what to do to fix the service. HOWEVER, if you make it through all that, it is pretty stable. For $100/yr, it's constantly been my to go service when I want something stable. I must admit though, during major PPV events, its unwatchable, too much buffering. Otherwise, it works. Has the best EPG I've seen thus far as it integrates with PVR stalker addon in Kodi nicely and all your major epg addons like IVUE, ONTAPP etc. For the US crowd, it actually has the US version of CNN, Disney jr, Nick etc. Unlike the other services I've tried that have the british versions. There is no record capability. No TV catchup service. Can only use on one device at a time. Hence why I bought 2 subs.

  1. Ruya Mbox (trial sub, One month sub) - Great customer service. This reseller responds and communicates via his facebook. Setup was a breeze, you pay via paypal and within 24hrs, I had a username, pwd and setup instructions for Kodi to install the addon. All you do is input your user and pwd and you are good to go. No messing around with donation #s, device ID etc like you do with stalker NFPS. It just works out the box. PROS: Quality is HD. Crystal clear. Works perfect. No buffering even during PPV events. Coming from NFPS, it looked amazing. His addon also integrates easier with some of the EPG providers out there like ONTAPP, IVUE. Even if it doesn't, you just need to tweak a few files in the kodi folder to get it to work. However its not a full integration, you don't see all the RUYA channels listed in the epg.
CONS: Most expensive iptv service out there I believe. I think I paid $25 for a month. About $170-$200 for a year sub. Still cheaper than cable. It does NOT integrate with PVR stalker and hence there is no EPG. For me, that remains a big let down. The interface leaves much to be desired. I like to channel surf based on whats currently showing at the moment. I don't have a channel in mind, I look through the listings and decide. But with this, you pretty much need to know what you want to watch, then scroll through the different channel groups to find your channel. Another issue I noticed was that it would sometimes just kick you out of the feed after a short while sometimes less than 30 mins. Sometimes less than 5 mins. I hate that because sometimes I need to work and I want to keep my kids busy with Disney jr and I hate having them interrupt me ever so often because it froze or kicked them out. You will get that with Ruya. The content is also geared towards the UK market hence few US channels. Hence check their channel listing first before you buy. The UI leaves much to be desired. Has a folder structure view. Hence its not something the wife might be able to use on her own.

SUMMARY: If you can get over the lack of a full EPG and the timeouts/freezes, then this is by far the most visually stunning and buffer free experience I've had. There is no record capability. It has TV catchup service but not for all channels. Mostly only with the UK channels. Can only use on one device at a time.

3) Ruya xl (One month sub) - Same review pretty much as mbox as it is the same RUYA service, just different resellers. Setup is done by emailing them. Response time is within 24hrs. He will send you a paypal link for payment. Instructions for setup are on the website. His service looks exactly the same as Mbox except he has a Kodi build which he integrates the add-on into IVUE so that you can have an epg. However, like Mbox, you don't see ALL the channels listed in the EPG. Same issues as with Mbox, it will timeout quick and sometimes kick you out.

4) IPTV Express full pkg (One month sub) - This is also called IPTV Black diamond with other resellers. Pros: 4k and full HD channels. Over 1600 channels. Once you've paid, you send them your MAC and they send you an android apk to install. App looks quite good. Great EPG. Customer service responded to all my questions. Setup was quite easy.
CONS: Cannot use with Kodi. Only way to use this on a windows PC is by installing bluestacks and emulating android to run the apk. Hence this package is geared mostly towards android boxes, MAGS and Avovs. No record service. TV catchup is only for the Indian channels or so. Nothing for the English ones. Majority of the 1600 channels DO NOT work. You just get a black screen. Their channel lineup is falsely advertised as majority of the US and major sports channels are contained in a "bonus channels" folder which does not work. UFC, NFL, NBA, boxnation channels DO NOT work. All the NFL and NBA channels are in the bonus folder sadly....and don't work. This service though UHD, is virtually unwatchable. Buffers every few seconds literally. Then it kicks you out. Really sad cos they have such a great looking apk and excellent channel lineup but NOTHING works. Maybe someone with a 100Mb connection might have better luck, but with my 8MB, it was unwatchable. However many of the reviews on the napster forum also express my sentiment. Hence I think its a general problem with their servers.
5) SMOOTHSTREAMSTV (3 month sub) Discovered about this service here on the reddit iptv board. Was added to the private board where I found the link to pay via paypal. Currently offer only 3mos and 6 mos subscriptions. I used this on my windows 10 HTPC. I believe they also offer an android apk which I haven't tried. This is not compatible with MAG boxes
PROS: Once you've paid, you immediately receive login details. Whole process took less than 5 mins to get setup. Setting up with Kodi is as easy as downloading the addon and inputting your login details. This is a sports oriented service. This would appeal to many of the sport buffs out there looking for a sports focused iptv addon. It also has a few non-sports and news channels like CNN, FOX NEWs, FOX, ABC. However these aren't 24 hrs channels. Once a major sporting event is live, your news feed gets changed to that sporting event. Price was great also. $32 for 3 mos. About $10/mth. $59 for 6 months. You can't beat that. One PPV event sets you back $50 to $100 on cable. Quality of the channels are HD. Most are 720p. Look stunning. No buffering noticed on my 8Mb connection. However, if you do notice buffering, the fix is as easy as going into the addon settings and selecting a different server from a different state of the USA or different country in the world. They also have a good subreddit community where you can ask questions and receive quick feedback. It is definitely not like NFPS that you cant ever reach. They offer the option to record your streams. This is the 1st service I've tried that can. You can also use the same subscription on multiple TVs watching different channels at the same time instead of having to buy multiple subs like other services. When watching a channel, you DONT get kicked out after 20-30 mins. That was a big deciding factor for me. I left CNN on, went to work, came back, was still on. Love it. I also was able to watch several of the sunday night NFL games this past weekend. Not one buffered. Streamed perfectly. I also love the fact that they offer paypal as a payment option and not exclusively bitcoin. This tells me they are confident about their product service as paypal purchases can be disputed. Bitcoins cant. Plus your average Joe still hasn't heard of bitcoin nor even knows how to go about purchasing some. They accept paypal, bitcoin and bank transfer.
CONS: I personally wished they had more of a channel selection. Yes the sports are great. But I am still forced to shop for a different iptv provider because of the lack of any kids content. No Disney jr, Nick jr etc The record function though a huge bonus isn't fully implemented yet. You cannot record a program in the future. Only whats currently playing. That's the primary reason for wanting to record for most people. If I am available to watch the program, then why record it? What you want is the ability to schedule a recording, go to work and watch it once you come back over a beer. The channel switching is the slowest I've ever encountered. It could take up to 2 mins to switch channels. Sometimes more. However, I noticed it's much quicker on channels that you have watched recently. Maybe those with much quicker data connections might have better luck with this. For me, it was torturing. It's also not compatible with the MAG box. I believe the MAG is a huge segment of the IPTV market. That's disappointing. Even though you are provided with the multiple servers to chose from, I still believe it increases the learning curve a tad bit for newbies especially making it difficult for the wife or guest to operate on their own. So there is a level of technical know-how that is required to use this. Granted changing servers is as easy as going into the addon settings and choosing a different country from the menu option. However as most married men here would attest, that's still a few clicks too many for the wife to understand. Would have been nice if all that was done automatically by the addon and you did not need to fiddle with that. I tried selecting the auto server option, and I encountered a lot of buffering. Apparently that isn't properly implemented.
However I do believe the PROS far outweigh the CONS. With the exception of my not having any kids channels, I still think this is the best service I have tried till date. I heard they are planning to introduce more channels on Oct 1. If that happens, i'll update my review accordingly.
ACE IPTV REVIEW (Dec 3, 2016) I was contacted by the folks at ACE iptv to do a review of their service. I was given a 1 month sub for free to try it out. The offer a 1,3,6 & 12 month sub with prices starting at 10 pounds/mth for the full package. My testing was done with Kodi.
PROS: 1) multiple connections for viewing different channels in different rooms. 2) Can be used on MAG, KODI, Smart TVs and VLC via M3U. Couldn't test it on my MAG cos i had my MAC bound to another IPTV service im testing. But i've seen screenshots on their facebook page which seem to show that the interface looks better on the MAG. 3)Well structured channel listing layout organized in folders. 4) Good selection of channels from US, UK and CA. All having News, Entertainment, Music, Movies, Sports & Kids channel sections. 5)Decent EPG on Kodi. Same look as the Ruya EPG. Not a full featured one like you are used to with IVUE. It just shows the Currently playing program and whats coming up next. But i believe on the MAG and STB, you can get more of the future EPG listings. 6) Easy Setup - They give you the source address to add into kodi file manager, you download & install the app from the source, put in your username and password. Thats it. 7) Overall good selection of channels, most are HD 720p, some 576p. 8) The guys over there running this are friendly and up on things. They answer back pretty quickly to questions and concerns on their facebook group.
CONS: Well please note, it appears the service is still in its intimacy. Hence i believe maybe in a few months, many of these issues below will be sorted out. Frequent updates are also posted on their facebook page about server downtime. 1)I noticed alot of buffering on some of the channels. HBO HD & HBO family was unwatchable for me. 2) I like to conduct what i call the "babysitter proof" test. I like to be able to turn on my kids favorite cartoons in their bedroom and not hear a peep about it freezing or switching off every few minutes. Sadly, every now and then, the channel would go off on its own. I also tried leaving on a channel overnight, by morning, it was off. 3)In Kodi, i noticed a 5-10 second delay with channel switching. 4)The Kodi interface isn't eye pleasing. Wont impress your friends. However it is functional and well structured. 5) Some of the premium movie channels are not HD - Showtime and HBO Zone are in 480p 6)Tried watching the Dallas Cowboys game on Thanksgiving day. Worked perfect for the entire first half 720p. However heavy buffering at the beginning of the 2nd half forced me to complete the game on another iptv service.
CONCLUSION: ACE IPTV is still in its infancy and hence some of these issues are to be expected. I like the channel lineup. I like the admin that runs it. They are active on the facebook group. However the service still has alot more room for improvement. I hope they rectify the buffering and switching off issues. Also get more HD sources for the premium movie and sports channels.
CONCLUSION: Hence thus far, that's been my experience. I'm yet to find something to fit my needs. Sadly NFPS to date remains my most "stable" package. Once setup, even my wife can use it. However, I cant watch any major sports events on it. I had high hopes for RUYA but the lack of an EPG and its folder view structure makes it less user friendly and an ugly UI. IPTV express was a major letdown. For me, not worth the money.
I just bought a MAG box, waiting for it to arrive. Still on the hunt for a new cable-like experience that even my wife can use. I also need something that I can put on for my kids and walk away for an hour without being called back into the living room to fix. Hope this helps someone out there. I'm still open to trying new services, haven't given up yet. However, I'm only open to using services that will give a free trial or have a youtube video that have a detailed presentation of their service. As I try new services, I will continue to update this post and record my iptv journey. Thanks everyone.
Edit Sept 23rd 6pm: Just signed up for smoothstreamstv. Signed up for their 3 month Bronze package. Setup was instantaneous. It's set up as fast as it takes you to make a payment, check your email and download their repo into Kodi. Working perfectly so far. Will update my review after a few days of testing out the service.
Edit Sept 30th. Added smoothstreamstv review.

Questions Answers
What is your views on 2.0? Will you be waiting to set up shop on there? Also, do you have confidence in the administration to run a safe market? We are staying far from it. They were supposed to be a decentralized open source platform that ran on .onion and .2ip. They claimed they would release their source code open source.
As of now they have yet to deliver on some of the fundamental framework they (claimed) to be setting up.
They also rely heavily on the fact ehy were SR Admins - they are not Silk Road admins. They are the forum moderators, which have very little if nothing to do with the actual Silk Road backend.
They post a picture of the FBI SR bust is just a sign that they are immature and trying to "poke" LEO.
They have failed to address the fact that their staff should be highly scrutinized with the recent flips, but they do not seemed concerned.
Lastly they claim to be professional yet are trying to roll out a un-developed platform - the admin is actively changing the code as he releases new features as some do not work as intended.
This is SR2.0 - why no testing? Why so eager to roll it out undeveloped? Why stagger features claiming it to be to control traffic yet they are resorting to changing fundamental site coding.
We are staying far away from the major markets for the time being.
Also I don't know how you can say the developers are being unprofessional when your landing page directs users to connect to your site via onion.to tor proxy. Our .com landing page has our direct .onion and .i2p as well as a .to proxy that is highly advised against.
I believe there was always a silent developer besides DPR on the old silk road team, while what I say is conjecture I think it's not fair to say "they are not Silk Road admins." Apologies, we did mix up the two. The points remains that the admins were not admins of the site but rather moderators.
Well put. Single developer that is slightly misguided. He wants to release 24/7 video streaming over .i2p and .onion and does not seem to know how to remain bandwidth efficient. This includes "situations that are not conspiracy theories" which seem to us like they may be broadcasting conspiracy theories as well. Aside from that they do seem promising although they do need a redesign on their site and subreddit.
How about /silkroadreloaded.
Please show where sr 2.0 said it was going to be 'a decentralized open source platform that ran on .onion and .2ip. They claimed they would release their source code open source.' We mixed up 2.0 and reloaded to some extent, apologies. Original statement corrected.
If it's highly advised against then why do you supply it? We don't supply it, it's a proxy extension. It will work with any .onion site.
We offer the link because simply visiting our site is not illegal, the backend does not log any data, and orders have the option of being placed through PGP encrypted email separate of the site.
Last question, what market in your opinion holds the most promise? Bad wolf? Bad Wolf.
TorMarket.
The Marketplace.
Link to bad wolf? They are still developing their site(s) but they have a subreddit at /badwolfhosting
Did you had any legal issues envolving those transactions or were some members of your staff busted by the police? Are you affraid that someday that might be an issue? We had no legal issues from the bust as we were on vacation (we cashed out our BTC bank to buy more grow equipment, increasing our yield) and received news of the SR bust 3 months into our vacation. Needless to say we were relieved.
None of our staff have ever had any legal issues related to this operation.
We are concerned about possible future issues involving staff, however the group we have is reliant on each other and has equal involvement. There are very few situations where one member of our staff would have to rely on releasing confidential information as we have moved completely away from domestic transport (non-blackmarket) sales.
How do you see the future of the drugs business, do you think this will become the go to method for selling and buying drugs? The future is quite promising as long as people that use these services start practicing personal security. This is absolutely the best, safest, and the future go to way for drugs.
While you do trade off convenience for anonymity and less risk, you also usually end up with a better product as well.
Why is everything so damned expensive? Our products or blackmarket items in general?
How do you vet your new staff? Ever turned down someone on a gut instinct? We have two types of staff - the ones that physically know each other are as close as family (quite literally), and we have very no personal staff that we question beyond the normal capacity (we are blackmarket vendors, we all get overly paranoid sometimes).
As far as remote staff, we simply maintain anonymity and make sure that no information is given that could ID us. These are mostly just IT outsourcing for data entry or small scripts.
We have turned down several members that have either accepted a job or those that simple message us asking if we need staff. Most of these have been blatant LEO.
LEO. Law Enforcement Officers
If you don't mind me asking, how much profit did you acquire?
Simply investing $5,600 in BTC when they were around $10 and selling at around $190 made us $110,000 - and this was entirely legal (although the actual amount received was much lower, to the amount of around 70%).
As of 6 months ago we had 1,270BTC total transaction over both sites. This equates to, at the current market rate of $320 per BTC, an amount of $406,400. However, we traded when they were multiple rates so the actual amount is closer to $200,000 in the last year.
DO you save your money to invest in your operation or do you save and spend on luxurious items? We save for business ventures, although paying 4 staff makes it considerably less per person.
Why? How can you feel so safe when you promote yourself like this? (actual question, not rhetorical) We do not expose ourselves in any way, and assume that in any possibility exists of data leaks then we assume that data compromised.
We use TOR and I2P over VPN. For some applications we use TOR over I2P over VPN.
We always use PGP encryption, and have native live encryption for all of our terminals.
Lastly cops are not our concern, intelligence agencies are. Despite the view on Law Enforcement we (in our own view) support our local law enforcement in our area (not suggesting all police departments are as fine and to the books as ours), so we don't have the "We Hate Cops" attitude - they are simply doing their job and are the lower level of enforcement.
When you say "TOR Over I2P over VPN" do you mean that you combine them or do you just prefer to use TOR and I2P on different situations. And thanks for doing this AMA. In extreme situations we connect to a VPN, then connect to I2p, then configure TOR to run through I2P.
By making this thread and reddit account i assume you could still not be traced? Of course not.
How do you justify using VPN after the NSA PowerPoint came out and revealed a few dozen of the top VPNs were already compromised, back in 2007 or so. Do you just ignore the threat of intelligence agencies and hope they wouldn't risk exposing "parallel investigations" to bust you? We are not effected as we only use private VPN's.
Do you feel like what your business does is ethical? Do you thinnk law enforcers trying to catch you are in the wrong? We do feel it is ethical. We don't supply anything other than cannabis, a drug that has been proven time and time again to not be the horrible substance as portrayed by 1930's culture. We take to a more modern culture in the belief (and supporting scientific evidence) that while cannabis does has negative side effects, it's positive side effect outnumber the bad effects significantly.
THC and CBN can not only shrink but help prevent some cancer growth.
CBD is a natural pain reliever. Just CBD does not get one "high".
___
The Law Enforcement are absolutely in the right. We do not expect even a LEO that may side with us to have that effect his job. We are doing something blatantly illegal in US jurisdiction ad we expect nothing less than them doing their job as required.
While we are not open about this business, we do support our local Police Department in events as they have a generally "by the books" reputation compared to some more corrupt areas.
What do you mean you "support our local Police Department in events?" Monetarily? If so, why? How does this benefit you? Our local PD still has police events/charities/fundraisers.
Great food and upstanding charitable members of the community are not suspected of international trafficking.
By "Great food" do you mean Los Pollos Hermanos? We believe that's reserved for DEA charities.
How do you export your 'goods' safely across the world without them being intercepted? private shipping companies? or do you only supply nationally and use private mailing companies such as fedex? United States Postal Service & meticulously careful packaging.
USPS requires a warrant to search, and with the recent bankruptcy of USPS they are even lower staffed than ever.
With a mix of around $10 spent on packaging alone (not postage) we make sure no orders are detectable.
I am wanting to order from one of these types of sites, but I am worried about the receiving end, and the risks. What can you say to alleviate those concerns? First, always research your vendor. All the security in the world doesn't matter if the end recipient is untrusted.
That being said, always use PGP. Never send messages without encryption.
If you are concerned with your home address being shipped to then we've never had issues with PO boxes, just make sure a signature is not required.
Never order to a fake name, vacant address, or large distributed mailing centers such as dorm rooms.
Why is it a bad idea to order to a fake name? After all, there's plausible deniability either way. USPS keeps a constantly updated address database. If the name doesn't match the address you run the risk of a package being flagged.
Why do you ship bud? Is it for the money? Ethics or some other personal reason? Money for sure. Locally we can sell cannabis for around $10 a gram, however we would much rather keep a streamlines anonymous exportation plan rather than deal on the "streets".
I'm guessing you're from a state that has legal medicinal bud at the very least, so why not go legit and sell to dispensaries and/or other legal persons? Sure, the money may not be as great, but you lose a lot of risk of LE busting you. On a side note, what kind of money do you make legally vs illegally? $1000 per pound more when you sell online? I'm curious. We make around 25% to 40% more selling online. We feel that the risk is worth the benefits.
If drugs were legalized, would you see that as ultimately a good thing or a bad thing for your business? Good. Cannabis sales don't seem to be hurt as much as harder drug trades.
How does shipping work? (Of course I don't expect you to reveal your secrets, maybe an example of how it could look like hypothetically) Multiple layers of mylar and vacuum seal, opaque layers, and false items.
Was any of your packages ever discovered before reaching it's destination? In our individual days we had a few intercepted, but this was before we were even selling online. We have since improved very much.
At that point, doesn't the government try to arrest you? No, they don't have any information. No fingerprints, biological material, legit but false return address, anonymous tracking.
What's BMR? Black Market Reloaded.
Can you talk about how common it is for your customers to encrypt their address when they message you? What proportion of your customers would PGP encrypt ordering instructions, and what percentage would send you their address in cleartext? About 10% of customers encrypt their address. That's why we implemented automatic encryption on our order form.
Would it be likely that anyone who had a plaintext shipping address in a dealer's inbox when the cops imaged the SR server had their address compromised? Absolutely. You'd be surprised how many based on our personal experience, there are a large amount of buyers that are probably quite nervous at the time.
How did you get into all of this (deep web?)? One of our members was a technically oriented individual that was looking into Bitcoins as a means to invest in our grow operation. We were a couple hours away from going to CVS to drop off money for BTC when we stumbled across the alternate BTC uses - including Silk Road.
From there we bought an account next day, and started probing everything we could about the site trying to prove it was a scam or LEO.
When we couldn't, we started vending. The first week was one of the only times we came too prepared - we expected 4 pounds and got around a quarter pound ordered our first week, grams and 8ths.
The second week we met 2 pounds and had enough to establish our "lifetime goal".
Over the last 2 years we have seem over 1000 BTC in sales, markets rise and fall, over 2000 unique customers an over 3000 unique shipments, 1,293 PGP keys (although most are not longer valid for contact as they use tormail), and almost enough cannabis to fill up a deuce and a half.
What do vendors do when a package gets lost? Has this ever happened to you? Refund. The return address isn't our address so no worries on us being busted.
We hd a few packages get lost before we were online vendors.
I guess by implication this means you write a return address on the package, presumably to avoid raising suspicions?? if so - what sort of address?? Every package should have a return address, not putting a return address is a very obvious flag.
Whose address do you use? Are you using a real person's address, someone not connected with your website? If so, don't you feel guilty that you might get them into trouble? Always use a legitimate return address, never a fake one.
But is it yours (or someone connected with your business), or someone else's? The return address is a valid address that checks out with USPS by comparison of the name and address. False return addresses can flag a package.
Okay, you're clearly using someone else's address, since you won't give me a straight answer. I don't agree with you doing that; if you did that to me and a package were opened, I would lose my professional licence. You are asking a blackmarket vendor about specific address details and where they ship their items from, no reputable vendor would give you a detailed answer.
That being said, the return addressee is not liable as every single vendor uses a return address that is not theirs.
Do you expect us to use our personal business address?
I used to use a vendor in Holland until shipments failed to show. Are your customers protected against this and if so how? That experience put me off buying from nets- although I'm thinking about having another go. Do you ship to Europe? We do ship to Europe, we offer tracking and if the tracking indicates a package does not arrive we send an automatic refund after 12 days or at request. We previously offered reshipments on BMR and SR, however we found that often it is simply a logistics problem that cannot be fixed by a reship.
Whats your grow set up like and are you planning any breeding projects so you could sell your own specific strains? Eb And Flow with drip ring setup, (16) 10 gallon grow containers per 55 gallon reservoir. All natural nutrients used, chilled and decontaminated water (we have water table issues in our area), redundant water pumps and overflow prevention.
Each system (pumps, electricity, sensors) are redundant in at least 2 counts, meaning if one pump or sensor fails there is always a second to take over.
In the event of a power outage we have a manually started 10,000W generator for extended power failures.
We have 2 separate buildings for sativa and indica, with one having a large amount of floorspace and low overhead, and the other having massive overhead for tall plants. Feminized seeds means we don't have to worry as much about isolation.
We primarily run a sea of green with 40 - 60 plants at any given time (overall, not harvesting) and around 10-30 plants in their own cycles.
Thats an awesome sounding setup man, you quite obviously know very much what you are doing, do you plan to ever go 'legit' so to say? We are Caregivers in our state, we just don't let our patients or the State onto our "extra" plants. All products are either grown by us or another state approved medical facility.
EDIT: Caregivers are not registered in any way. Caregivers are not state registered dispensaries/growers, they are not doctors - they are normal people who grow cannabis in a legal state.
We are legitimate Caregivers in our state. Yes, to the already obvious cannabis friendly state. Beyond that caregivers are not registered - growers and dispensaries are but caregivers are not and can be nearly anyone, they just have to grow cannabis.
Doesn't that narrow down your location some? We are not a business, state registered dispensary, or state registered grower.
Do they not question how you made X amount of money per year with no real/legal job listed? We claim all money made and pay the appropriate taxes, although we do have cash reserves that we do not claim.
Do your parents know? :) Of course not.
Do you keep your customers data? (shipping address, bitcoin address, etc, ) If so why and how do you keep it safe? Temporarily yes. Our order form stores orders until we delete them or if no action is taken in 14 days. All stored data is encrypted via PGP, and upon package arrival all information is destroyed.
We do keep customers emails for future reference with repeat customers.
Would you ever do it again? We never stopped, we just made our own vendor store.
How do you see yourselves as different from other established clearnet cannabis websites such as budmail.biz? We ship both to the USA and internationally (budmail.biz does not ship to US, Sweden, or Norway) and use an encrypted form of hosting.
Why dont you see BMR as one of the top upcoming prospects..? backopy already proved loyalty by refunding all BTC when the site was taken down, due to a potential security flaw. Don't get us wrong, the vendors can be A+ on BMR however the fact that backopy A) Used a VPS to reduce amount of work B) Chose a unreliable VPS and C) never address the amateur coding issue.
Since we got the root we have since distanced ourselves as we saw that it was relatively insecure coding from what the index page indicated.
What are some of the legal problems your customers face? Have you had any reports on these? We've never had any reports of customers that have legal issues regarding our services.
How do you ship out 10lbs a week without alerting authorities? I understand if you can't go in depth here but any attempt at an answer would be appreciated :) We have never shipped 10 pounds at once - everything is quarter pounds to pounds. We simply make sure we can drop it off anonymously (dropbox or blue bin).
How long does that free shipping take domestically? Generally 3 days, however it can take up to 5 days.
What are your views on the sheep marketplace? Out of the major markets (SR, BMR, SMP) it's the best looking and, from what we can tell, has the best coding. That being said it is still a unstable site and many, many people widely regard it to be a honeypot.
We've sold on there before (previous to SR bust, not under same alias), it's not all too bad but we feel that it's simply trying to compete with BMR (and then SR) with it's features.
I understand the honeypot concept but surely if vendors move BTC daily out of the site then all they've lost is the vendor fee. Why do you believe its called a honeypot? Most answers seem to be because its called sheep. Honeypot means Law Enforcement Sting.
Yes i understand that, but if vendors and customers are safe then they have nothing to worry about. Im wondering why sheep is regarded as a honeypot. The only answer i have seen is because of the name 'sheep'. Why do you believe its a honeypot? Out of curiosity could you link us the discussions where these assumptions were based off of the site name?
Heres a few on reddit - Link to www.reddit.com. It seems most are simply speculation, and most arguments are literally because the sites name is sheep.
The reason for my questions are that I am considering heavy investment in becoming a vendor myself, so I am weighing up my options as to which is the most suitable marketplace. Thanks for your answers so far. The downside to sheep is that it is a foreign hosted site (India) and support can be a bit touchy, but otherwise if you use PGP for orders you shouldn't run any risk.
Interesting how did you find its hosted from india? Linguistics from Support.
Is it possible to insert packets of malware into Tor, as it is being downloaded? It would be quite hard if the end user validates the download. Download spoofing would be a more likely malicious method.
Bad wolf. We heavily expected a Dr. Who reference.
Just because you intercept a package doesn't mean you know where it came from. A single intercept also does not warrant a warrant.
Yes, that was a ridiculously stupid thing to say. There is more than enough information in this thread to narrow down the identity. Caregivers are not registered - growers and dispensaries are but caregivers are not and can be nearly anyone, they just have to grow cannabis.
The OP here may as well call the DEA hotline and leave his name. We are not a business, state registered dispensary, or state registered grower.
What makes you think this is a single person, or at that that Modern Culture would not know about handwriting forensics prior to doing an AMA?
It takes much more than a paragraph, current analytical techniques use several thousands of words to build a rudimentary analysis.
My suggestion: say nothing, do nothing, don't infer anything, etc.
How do you not get caught in the Deep Web if the Govt. own a portion of Tor. Source - Times Mag. Because the Govt. does not own a portion of TOR and TOR has yet to be shown as insecure.
The tor project gets government funding. In and of itself that should tell you something. That should tell you that TOR was developed by the US Navy and nothing more. Government funding =/= owning portions of TOR. Most likely a private company owns the majority of TOR exit nodes. I2P is recently reguarded a safer because of the misconception that any of the pasts busts have been at fault of TOR, which is false. All vasts were social busts, where admins made mistakes in withholding their identity. I2P has just as many theoretical flaws as TOR does (actually quite a few more) but neither TOR nor I2P have ever shown to be insecure. I2P is no safer than TOR if you don't practice personal security. Both are secure and (currently) unbreakable as of this time.
I believe the future of darknet markets is in .I2p. It is much more secure than tor. This isn't my opinion. I am too uneducated to have one. This comes from those much more well versed in programming and net sec issues.
Cops. Not a concern to us.
Would it be like He logs into Tor then from there logs into I2P OR would it be like Him saying that he would use I2P before he would use Tor. I'm so confused sorry. Log into your VPN, then log onto OTR or I2P. In exteme situations you can tell I2P or TOR to use a certain port to forward it though it's counterpart (TOR through I2p or I2P through Tor)
I'm too stup-itt use TOR. Can I get some pot anyway? We have a .com site that explains everything and provides links on how to download and use TOR and I2P.
