New Zealand Cryptopia Exchange Hack Continues


Crazy to think even after the last hack people are still transfering their coins and money into cryptopia , im sorry but after all thats happened thats just crazyness !!


That’s is crazy !! To think they still have access to the wallets . I’m so glad I didn’t have Eth and only used it to swap into etn then off the exchange.

I feel for those whose investments are stuck.


@Plankton So do they have more than wallet information!!


They are saying they have the keys so that’s not good. Cryptopia still hasn’t got control . So your guess is as good as mine.

I would say most likely yes and as a precautionary measure. If your passwords are the same for other sites change them etc same for bank details block it


Smart idea! Squirrels :chipmunk:

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.
