Cryptopia, a cryptocurrency exchange based in New Zealand has added a Coin Info page to its platform. As a result, users can now check the status of cryptocurrencies after the hacks suffered by the exchange. Cryptopia has also informed that standing orders can be canceled on the platform.
Cryptopia Cryptocurrency Exchange Faced Security Breaches
News about Cryptopia’s hack in January took the cryptocurrency community by surprise. However, it was not the last of its kind given that a few days later, the exchange suffered another attack ammounting to its $16 million loss. Nevertheless, the events of the past month show that they are making attempts to restore operations fully on the exchange.
In line with that, a Coin Info page has been added to the portal whose features and purpose has been explained by Cryptopia. The exchange in a Tweet on March 15 said progress is being made to secure all wallets on the exchange. They also attached a link which can be used to check the status of cryptocurrencies that have been secured so far.
Cryptocurrencies Either Have an In Maintenance or Offline Tag
A quick look at Coin Info’s page shows that a number of cryptocurrencies that were listed on the platform either have an “In maintenance” or “offline” wallet status. The likes of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, and Fastcoin have the maintenance tag. Based on the exchange’s explanation, it can be assumed that wallets containing these assets have been checked and their content secured.
The message next to each of these coins reads: “Currency 100% secured, Withdrawal and Deposits offline until new hot wallets are ready.”
On the other hand, those with the offline status as at press time include Blitzpredict, Cappasity, Dash, DeepOnion, Dentacoin, Digibyte and a range of others. On clicking on the information icon next to them, it displays the message “We apologize for the inconvenience and are looking to restore service as soon as possible.”
Cryptopia Allows Customers to Cancel Standing Orders
In line with this development, the virtual currency exchange had also informed its customers that they will be able to cancel all pending orders. They added that while the API has been disabled, users can still access the website to cancel these standing orders.
On March 4, the exchange also stated that the read-only site has gone live. They added that the holdings in accounts before the hack occurred on January 14 will be used to calculate rebates for customers.
