Never heard of this project, is it legit? What happened with the identity theft?

Kobocoin is a decentralised peer-to-peer digital currency and micro payment system. It was created by Felix Onyemechi Ugoji, a Nigerian entrepreneur and developer based in the UK.

 https://www.grantthornton.co.nz/press/press-releases-2019/cryptopia-limited-appoints-grant-thornton-as-liquidators/


 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

I wonder how much they lost? Maybe the project will not get back on its feet and will work as usual. This is all hidden and silent.

I have finally got back my original account that got hacked 2 years ago  Grin

First things first. Sorry about Cryptopia. Beyond my control. I also lost KOBO and BTC. I would suggest that you use Golix or Coinexchange. Once the new initiative is rolled out I will start to look for other exchanges.

There's still some negative trust (showing a red thread if you're not logged in). This is because other members were kind enough to flag the account as being hacked and these flags need to be removed. One user has already removed the negative trust. I'm pushing for the other two guys to do the same.

I'll soon have a nice update for you all that involves some Kobocoin branded buses that will be in an African capital city sometime soon.

Also, I have started updating the OP. It had lost all images because I went to https and couldn't edit it while my account was hacked. I'll be using more screenshots of the website etc so it's more up to date.

Wowzers Felix! You have been busy behind the scenes, I saw you trying to get your account back on another thread and figured it might be a lost cause, well done it can't have been easy, and double well done for that Kobocoin Minivan, I thought it was just a photoshop job when I saw it in your twitter feed and not a real van with a real engine that can actually move around Africa promoting our favourite coin, nice one Grin Grin Grin
I am seriously looking forward to your next update. Cool Cool Cool

Regards,

Mammoth

As soon as the vinyl is applied to one of the buses I will post further pics. I want to get pics of the buses in town and market settings. It will be good for publicity and community growth. These will be on public buses that transport people. These are not 'roadshow' buses. Three buses and one saloon car will be wrapped. We might try and make deals with more cab firms to get wider coverage but this will be a 6 month test.

This is all possible thanks to Panashe Tapera, previously with Golix, and now Head of Growth for Kobocoin.

Panashe on YouTube:

He is already an invaluable part of the future growth of Kobocoin.

We are now working together to grow the kobo community. He's done good stuff so far. Without him on the ground the bus advertising idea would never have gotten off the ground.

There's also a new monthly newsletter that visitors to the website can sign up to.
