After a period of closure, Cryptopia.co.nz was back online today after a security issue earlier this year.
Customers received the following email today, here’s an excerpt:
We are writing this letter to update you on the progress we are making after the event that occurred on the 14th of January 2019. You may have heard various comments about this event being an exit scam but rest assured we are 100% committed to reopening the exchange, bigger and better and to continue trading.
On the 14th of January 2019 we noticed several suspicious transactions and placed our site into maintenance to prevent additional funds from being compromised as best we could. We notified local and international law enforcement agencies of the matter and our offices were locked down and the site was only accessible to a very small number of staff and law enforcement agencies. We complied with all requests so as not to tarnish the scene. As a result, many of our staff were sent home on full pay and our systems were inaccessible.

I can imagine it has been a tough time from them, glad to see that they’ve opened up again and we wish them all the best. They weren’t the first and won’t be the last exchange to face these sorts of issues.
