PANIC !!!

Quote
David Ruscoe and Russell Moore from Grant Thornton New Zealand were yesterday appointed liquidators of Cryptopia Limited, a New Zealand cryptocurrency exchange based in Christchurch.

The highly publicised hack of Cryptopia’s exchange in January 2019 had a severe impact on the company’s trade. Despite the efforts of management to reduce cost and return the business to profitability, it was decided the appointment of liquidators was in the best interests of customers, staff and other stakeholders.

The liquidators are focused on securing the assets for the benefit of all stakeholders. While this process and investigations take place, trading on the exchange is suspended.

“We realise Cryptopia’s customers will want to have this matter resolved as soon as possible. We will conduct a thorough investigation, working with several different stakeholders including management and shareholders, to find the solution that is in the best interests of customers and stakeholders,” says David Ruscoe.

“Given the complexities involved we expect the investigation to take months rather than weeks.”

The liquidators are also working with independent experts and the relevant authorities with regards to the company’s obligations.  

Grant Thornton will be contacting all customers and suppliers about its appointment in the next few days.

An initial report will be available on the New Zealand Companies Office website next week. No further comment will be made until more information is available.

Trading while insolvent - which is what I said months ago when @Lafu and @Xtraelv slapped their distrust on my DT-Trust list.

No shame in admitting you were wrong - time to remove those distrusts.

After this press release, I guess I will have a harder time retrieving my account then since I lost my phone (2FA). I just hope that if ever time comes when distribution of assets to its clients is necessary, they will just ask wallets addresses thru email.

I had funds on cryptopia that were not affected by the hack in anyway instead of just letting me withdraw my funds they are just doing this now.
I am not happy there was no reason for me to lose money lucky I did not have more on there at the time.

She used to work for that liquidator as well.

2 million users multiplied by $5,000 equals ten billion dollars $10,000,000,000 (I doubt Binance has that kind of money sitting around)

Many users would have less than $50 on the exchange.


But if you had 50 000, they are only liable for 10%

Yeah same ..

also how do they plan to liquidator coins that where only listed on cryptopia  the liquidator should just open the exchange and let us take out shit out.

The wording suggests voluntary liquidation: it says they were appointed by Cryptopia and not by a judge. Otherwise better known to us by the proper term of exit scam.

Are you sure they never allowed withdraws? I thought that when the soft trading of those limited pairs opened they allowed withdraws for BTC and LTC and everything else was disabled "As they kept investigating".

I actually had a small amount of BTC on this exchange and feel a little irresponsible for not withdrawing that small amount, even though something told me that "Why is it taking so long and to get out quick just in case".

This is why I withdrew everything from Bitfinex a couple weeks back in case the same scenario happened. You can always send it back to the exchange and the withdraw fees weren't too high.

Really hope they re-enable withdraws for the alt-coins however which werent stolen.

So CEFS(Cryptopia fee shares) just go zero?

Very likely as those would be unsecured creditor.


However if you have coins, they shouldn't sell your coins to pay debts.


Like if you rent a box to store your shit.
Even if the company behind the box rental goes down, they don't open and sell the content of the box to repay the debts.

They will however sell all the assests owned by the company to pay the debts and reimburse the clients that got their funds stolen

They should have let client that were not impacted to withdraw their funds, not all coins were stolen only a few type of coins were (ETH + ERC20 + a few others). 

VEry poorly managed !

I am returning in this thread after a while, i abandoned it when I withdrawn my 86% BTC....

At the end looks like I was right since the beginning. Cryptopia could NOT restart business as anything had happened, lost traders' trust, and I am happy to have withdrawn anything I could as soon as I could. This saved me 80% of funds also in Bitgrail hack and I advise alla of you to do the same if this kind of event will happen again in the future.

At the end things arrived to the worst decision, liquidation, well I thought seizure and then liquidation, not much difference, probably faster because there is no lecal proceeding.

good luck to all I don't think I will ever try to get my other 14%
