The report also says that the exchange notified the authorities about the incident. The investigation is conducted by the New Zealand police and the local office for combating high-tech crime. Trading operations on the platform will be suspended until the problem is solved.
Note that during the bullish rally Cryptopia was quite popular, because it presents a huge number of altcoins.
Recall that at the end of last year, thanks to the “51% attack” on the cryptocurrency AurumCoin, an unknown user withdrew from Cryptopia cryptocurrency worth more than $500 thousand.
