Cryptopia removed from CryptoFeeSaver
Since the exchange is currently in maintenance mode due to the hack it suffered on January 14th, and the situation is presumably not going to get solved in the near future, we at CryptoFeeSaver have decided to remove the New Zealand Exchange until it resumes its normal operations (if it ever does, which we hope it will).
On January 14, Cryptopia tweeted that the exchange was going through “unscheduled maintenance”. For the next twelve hours, the exchange continued to assure users that its team was trying to resolve the issue.
Finally, Cryptopia tweeted an official statement confirming the hack as a “security breach.” The crypto exchange claimed on Twitter that it had suffered “significant losses” and had been trying to deal with the situation:
We apologise for the delay in keeping you updated and appreciate your patience.
Yesterday 14th January 2019, the Cryptopia Exchange suffered a security breach which resulted in significant losses. Once identified by staff, the exchange was put into maintenance while we assessed damages.
Staff then notified and involved the appropriate Government Agencies, including NZ Police and High Tech Crimes Unit who arejointly and actively investigating the matter as a major crime and they are assisting us with advice.
Until this has been carried out, The Cryptopia Exchange will remain in maintenance mode, with trading suspended. We are committed to getting this resolved as quickly as possible and will keep you all updated every step of the way.
The Cryptopia Team
