While it is certainly true users are not able to access their Bitfinex account balances, for now, this has nothing to do with Bitcoin technology itself. When putting one’s trust in a centralized platform that controls your money, these things are bound to happen. However, that does not mean there is anything wrong with Bitcoin or the network. One company has been affected by this hack, and some people automatically assume Bitcoin is crippled because of it. This is unfortunate for Vietnamese investors, but they are not the only ones affected.
