Cryptopia Cryptocurrency Exchange Has Been Compromised.

Looks like Cryptopia may have been compromised. Early this morning Coindesk reported on the story. www.coindesk.com…

I went to the website and confirmed the site is indeed in maintenance mode!

Reminiscent of the Cryptsy hack. Cryptopia goes into maintenance mode as reports surface that the exchange had been compromised.

Searching their Twitter I discovered this tweet confirming the story.

For the most part, Cryptopia has always acted honorably in the past. The Dood holds a small amount of cryptocurrency on their exchange. It’s just starting to sink in that this could be a substantial loss for me. I just avoided losing funds to the Cryptsy hack about a week before they posted the same ominous message! I’ve always expected this would happen sooner or later, but for now, I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt and staying positive.  Hopefully, things will work out for all involved and this won’t be a total loss for myself or anyone else trading on that exchange.
