BREAKING: Crypto Exchange Cryptopia Hacked, Police Starts Investigation

Be careful out there guys !!!

Is it possible to check out blockexplorer and see ETN transfers from cryptopia wallet?

Let’s hope not too many folk holding ETN or funds on exchanges. Best practice is to get in and get out when it comes to exchanges. Never leave significant funds sitting there. Fingers crossed!


Paper wallets people !!!

Never leave on an exchange …


No no no
all my life all my etns were in cryptopia except 1000 in my locked etn wallet.

Try not to worry too much. The feeling is that ETN is ok.

I’m very stressed it is inevitable. It is my saving .

Sorry to hear that. Lets hope what people are saying is true and ETN not impacted. Hoping for you!

sounds like it was a lot of ETH that was taken. No mention of ETN yet.

Hope so. Amen

Please attribute to Detective Inspector Greg Murton:

The Police investigation into the Cryptopia hack and theft of cryptocurrency is progressing well and advancing on several fronts.

The focus is on identifying those behind this offending and retrieving the stolen cryptocurrency.

This is a complex investigation involving the theft of cryptocurrency in an unregulated environment.

The stolen cryptocurrency is being actively tracked by Police and specialists worldwide due to the nature of the cryptocurrency blockchains being publicly available.

Excellent progress is being made in the investigation and we are working with Cryptopia management plus current and former employees who have been providing valuable assistance.

We are working closely with our international partners and cybercrime experts to continue the investigation.

Cryptopia’s managers are on site at their Christchurch address and Police are expected to finish at the premises by the end of next week (Friday 15 February).

This investigation is expected to take a considerable amount of time to resolve due to the complexity of the cyber environment.
