Another hack that drives the nail in – New Zealand’s Cryptopia exchange finds itself, once again, in the spotlight as it goes into receivership. In addition to the $30 million stolen in 2019, the platform is reported to have suffered another hack on February 1, 2021.
A pathetic hack that pushes Cryptopia a little deeper.
The investigation revealed that the hackers allegedly accessed a wallet that had been dormant since the January 2019 hack, when Cryptopia suffered a loss of more than $30 million in cryptos.
According to Stuff.co.nz, this new attack would have stolen $45,000 of digital assets.
The portfolio is owned by Stakenet and is under the control of Cryptopia’s liquidator, Grant Thornton. The investigation found that the dormant portfolio contained approximately $1.96 million worth of XSN, Stakenet’s native token.
« We had no prior warning of any movement. So we immediately contacted Grant Thornton, which is supposed to have control of these assets and is responsible for redistributing them to their rightful owners. If this unauthorized transaction took place under the supervision of Grant Thornton, then they will have to explain to the users why they failed to secure the assets as they were supposed to and how someone was able to access them. »
For the moment, the liquidator has not made a public statement on this piracy. This incident comes just a few months after a former employee stole more than $180,000 worth of cryptos, not to mention the exchange’s customer data.
