PSA: PoloniEX's Bitshares wallet is 'poloniexwallet' NOT 'poloniex'. There are warnings built into the Bitshares wallets regarding this account but it seems the last couple of weeks has seen some users who attempted to transfers BTS from Bittrex to PoloniEX accidently transfer their BTS to this name squatter. As a result the fake 'poloniex' account now controls over 2 Million Bitshares and has reached the Top 100 BTS holder list.
