New Zealand-based Cryptopia is closing after filing for bankruptcy, several months after the crypto exchange was hit with a $15 million hack.
A Samoan church in New Zealand may have helped OneCoin workers convince hundreds in joining their Ponzi scheme.
After several false signals and delays, Cryptopia exchange has finally gone live again, but still has work to do.
New Zealand crypto exchange Cryptopia has revealed more details on the hack it suffered in January, suggesting as much as 9.4% of the firm’s entire holdings had been stolen.
The New Zealand-based cryptocurrency exchange Cryptopia was given permission to resume its operations following a hack in January that saw around $16 million in digital assets stolen.
Police in New Zealand have given the green light to Cryptopia exchange to reopen "whenever they want." But for some reason, they still haven’t.
New Zealand-based cryptocurrency exchange Cryptopia realized that it was under attack by hackers. It moved to thwart the theft of assets, but not until after approximately $3.65 million in Ether (ETH) and Centrality had been lifted off the platform.
In the wake of the hack of the New Zealand-based cryptocurrency exchange Cryptopia more than a week ago, the lack of information is starting to worry some people that the hack was bigger than reported.
The scale of the attack remains unclear for the time being, though there is the suggestion that as many as 19,931 ETH and 48 million Centrality (CENNZ) tokens could have been moved from the exchange, totaling in the region of US$3.65 million.
