New Zealand Exchange Cryptopia Hacked

New Zealand crypto exchange Cryptopia suffered a data breach on January 14, officials announced on Twitter. Trading has been suspended and the site will be under maintenance until the issue is resolved.

The team has already taken the matter up with governmental agencies, and the New Zealand police and high-tech crimes unit.

No details as to the amount of lost funds have been made public yet. Cryptopia becomes the first exchange to be hacked in 2019.

WhalePanda, a Bitcoin proponent, said that the exchange is now mostly irrelevant. The market yet hasn’t been affected in any noticeable way.

    I think it gets hacked all the time. My XPD coins have been in “maintenance” for months and they never explain why. Just that my coins are safe and will be accessible in the future lol. I hope they are done as they give people negative experiences and erode trust in exchanges in general. I accept my losses if it means good bye , thought I hope others get them back.

    Cryptopia is looking more and more doggy. Very sad! For once I was happy and now I am not that sure.
