Well, in short: they got hacked. And boy did they get it bad. With rumors swirling of an exit scam, no one is quite sure what to expect. All we do know is that a “significant” amount was stolen and the exchange has been shut into maintenance mode for the time being. Sources have come out saying that even after Cryptopia handed over the exchange to the New Zealand police, the hackers have continued to take assets from Cryptopia. Popular exchange Binance has claimed that it has frozen some of the assets the hackers stole, as they reportedly transferred it and attempting to sell it on Binance.
With little information being released officially, its safe to say speculation on the Cryptopia hack will continue until the CEO lets us know whats going on.
What do you think? Do you still have assets locked on the Cryptopia exchange?
