Cryptopia Exchange Enables Read-Only Mode

Trading platform users will have access to their balances as of January, 14th.

New Zealand’s exchange Cryptopia which has been hacked twice since the beginning of 2018 enabled read-only mode. Trading platform users can enable 2FA and check the accounts because they will be used for repayment.

Last week, trading platform’s employees estimated the damage of 9.4% of company’s own assets. Earlier, Elementus analysts claimed that the exchange lost $16 million, then $180 000 were stolen from its users.

Up to date, local police investigates the case. State representatives do not comment on it.
