Some people hold their crypto assets on exchanges, it is very dangerous, previously many exchanges have been hacked.
I advise You should keep your crypto assets in your personal wallet because the exchange is not safe.

  Embarrassed There is always risk, however most of them using bypases or work in a legal gray area and this exposes users to great risks. By obtaining all the necessary licenses and adapting the infrastructure to the requirements of the regulators, exchanges will ensure both business security and reliable access to different forms of pay-in and pay-out on the platforms.  

Great market for that is Thaland since they are one of the few countries which have adopted all the necessary crypto regulations in 2019, including issuing security tokens, both for trading with STO and for issuing the STO, Digital Asset Business License, License for Cryptocurrency Broker, License for Cryptocurrency Dealer, and Cryptocurrency Exchange license by the Thai Ministry of Finance. working with relevant authorities including the Bank of Thailand, and the Securities and Exchange Commission, will uphold the law and maintain maximum quality of service for crypto users. Hope other countries will also follow up with regulating crypto market.

Damn, thanks for the information, I'm not even aware that shapeshift get hacked before, the best way to avoid this is never trust any exchange no matter how secured they are, hackers are always advancing, do not leave funds or coins on any exchanges

Yes still the best way is to use cold wallets. Stay way out from online.

If we store money in exchanges then we should be prepared for a mentality, because the entire exchange in this market can be hacked at any time. Even the best exchange like Binance is still hacked in 2019. It is best to store all altcoins and bitcoin in a cold wallet.

It means that there is no secure system and website because even the more secure like binance was experienced hacking and many exchanges site too.  So once your money is in the crypto exchange make sure that is safe  because anything will possible to happen like losing of your money.

I don't think we need another thread about hacked exchange listing, because there are more than enough thread already available in this forum. If you search, you will find them. Though Altsbit exchange hacked new information for me, I had no idea about that and this is the first time I am hearing about this exchange! All those hackers are a curse for the world, I wish COVID-19 takes them!

The truth is that, there will even be further hacks, either today or tomorrow, nobody knows.
This is why it is advisable for everyone to keep their assets (especially i large $) on paper or trezor ledger wallets.

The centralized exchange or decentralized exchanges are not the best place to store your digital assets.

Binance is a very good exchange, no doubt here and I like it most. But to be honest, Binance is not secure enough. They had several hack attacks! That's why no one should store their coin on Binance for a long time! Kucoin, Bittrex is fetter exchange in privacy and security! Though I would discourage anyone from holding crypto assets on exchanges!

No exchanges are really secure, they can be attacked by someone. And Binance was actually hacked in 2019 and hackers stole over $ 35 million. But Binance has done a good job, they have refunded all their investors. And no one complained about it, if other exchanges were hacked, I think they would have collapsed

Of course, exchanges are only for day-to-day trading or short-term trading, so if I have a large asset, I never keep it on the exchange because it's too risky in my opinion, and a cold wallet is a safe place for me to hold some valuable crypto.

Of course the exchange will have a difficult time and maybe for now they are more alert and stronger in their handling.

This is good information, OP i just hope that you can try to add or create another column to be used for the list of the dex that has ever got hacked by scammer. I have seen some dexs in the past were getting hacked too. It's really important to make the newcomers aware of this.

Woooh, damn Mt. Gox with a whooping 850k bitcoins.
If that will be sold by now then I bet there will be a huge way that will come.

There are so many names. I just realized some of them are using like a phishing scheme.
Almost the same name as the known exchanges like Youbit. (or is it just spelled wrong? [Yobit])

For the first time I hear about the bij Altsbyt.
It is amazing how much money was stolen, sending half of the total number of bitcoins and half of the volume of several altcoins.
It is noteworthy that the exchange has already returned 50% of the assets by the user.

If you look at this list, you can see that exchanges were most frequently hacked in 2019, which was the most successful year for hackers. I am curious how much exhcange will be affected this year. But the only thing is clear, no matter how banal it sounds, the best wallet is your wallet, no trust for exchange

Exchanges can never be a good place to store your coin. You may get stuck with hacking, rules and regulations of exchanges. It's better to use non custodial wallet or software wallet always.
This is a good list but as far as I can remember, someone else had made a list too. If I can find, I will share here.

You should be more worried about theft from inside jobs at exchanges as opposed to external, actual, hacks. The biggest losses on your list were simply thieves as opposed to security issues

Thanks for suggestion Buddy. Of course, I will keep updating it.

Damn, thanks for the information
You are welcome.

I don't think we need another thread about hacked exchange listing
I think such things should be highlighted. Because we should learn from the past

The average large exchange will definitely be the target of hackers to break into his money and therefore it is very risky too if you keep assets too long on the exchange.
But I have never felt that whether the assets that were hacked will be compensated by the exchange or will lose it all?
Software wallet or cold wallet which is safer in my opinion because it has a private key that I keep safely.
