With New Zealand Exchange Cryptopia in the midst of a liquidation process, hackers seem to consider it an easy victim. Despite it being under the supervision of Grant Thornton liquidators, criminals have stolen over $40,000.
The allocated liquidator for Cryptopia, the collapsed New Zealand-based cryptocurrency exchange, has managed to recover around NZ$7.2 Mln (approx. $5 Mln) on balance since it was attacked by anonymous hackers for feasibly $18 Mln early this year. The exchange went into liquidation back in May after facing a gigantic attack by deadly unknown hackers in January.
The popular New Zealand (NZ)-based cryptocurrency exchange Cryptopia was unexpectedly attacked twice by anonymous hackers in January who run away with more than $18 million worth of cryptocurrency from around 80,000 wallet addresses. From the complicated liquidation actions being conducted by Grant Thornton, an update for all account holders was announced.
Another day without any technical newness for the Bitcoin (BTC) against the US dollar. Amidst the storm unleashed by what seems to be an ongoing liquidation of the USDT, the connection between BTC and the US dollar stays solid and doesn't mirror any vast variation in value.
