Defunct cryptocurrency exchange BTER claims it doesn't have enough funds to reimburse all its users, following an alleged seven-figure hack.

The Chinese exchange closed earlier this week, issuing a statement via its website that 7,170 BTC had disappeared from its offline wallet – around $1.75m at press time.

Speaking to CoinDesk, a BTER spokesperson claimed CNY and USD withdrawals would resume within a week. However, the company said it is still exploring different options to make all its customers whole, including selling the platform.

Any buyers?

Like Mt. Gox ?

Any news about how the hack took place ? What they really meant by Cold Wallet ?

Will they get into jail for not paying back to customer ?

No idea how the Chinese law works in such matters. I reckon there will be some Chinese users who will report them for fraud. I'm guessing if authorities believe the hack was genuine, they might get away with it.

A cold storage shouldn't be hacked so easily. I highly suspect that it is a inside job. For a cold storage to be hacked, the RNG must first be compromised. If the RNG is indeed compromised, it implies that the exchange hasn't verified the source code themselves and risk customer's funds.

Fairly sure it's only temporary. Apart from the inside jobs it wouldn't be surprising if some of these hacks were by a certain 3-letter agency to disrupt bitcoin's adoption?

Defunct cryptocurrency exchange BTER claims it doesn't have enough funds to reimburse all its users, following an alleged seven-figure hack.

The Chinese exchange closed earlier this week, issuing a statement via its website that 7,170 BTC had disappeared from its offline wallet – around $1.75m at press time.

Speaking to CoinDesk, a BTER spokesperson claimed CNY and USD withdrawals would resume within a week. However, the company said it is still exploring different options to make all its customers whole, including selling the platform.

Any buyers?

it really sad for all customer that save btc in the website

Most probably no buyers. And that cold storage... Looks like the ice on that storage has been melting, not that cold after all.

Also, they apparently started allowing CNY, USD and NXT withdrawals, let's see how this goes.

i always found it suspicious about their statement. i think BTER is now celebrating Chinese new year with its users BTC and releasing b.s. about cold wallet being hacked!

Thanks, Yeah saw their tweet right after posting this. Best to get your coins out of there

I tried withdrawing NXT but you can't withdraw them yet. You get a message saying "NXT withdrawal is disabled" when you try. The balances page only shows USD, CNY, and NXT and it looks like they will be the first withdrawals available as it says on twitter..
