New Zealand based cryptocurrency trading platform Cryptopia.co.nz has gone offline showing a ‘under maintenance’ message on their website for hours now without any mention of maintenance on their social media accounts.
The exchange has been recovering from the major hack that happened a few weeks ago due to which the website was shut down for a long period.
Cryptopia used to be active on social media prior to the hack even though hundreds of users were complaining about their customer support and management. They have been trying to post important updates on Twitter even after the hack to keep their users informed about news and progress on the recovery but for the last three weeks there has been no updates or messages from the team or on their social accounts.
Their website has gone offline for several hours now and there hasn’t been any kind of notifications or updates regarding this on their twitter or any other social profiles. Cryptopia is New Zealand cryptocurrency exchange based in Christchurch, which was the target of a multi-million dollar theft in January 2019.
Even though the message on their website says not to panic, after seeing the platform down for more than eight hours, users started enquiring about the status on social media. After the earlier security breach the company had recently reopened withdrawals for bitcoin, doge and LTC. They had also opened deposits for several digital currencies which was welcomed by their users even after they lost a majority of their user base and traffic because of the hack.
Their last update on Twitter was three weeks ago on April 27th.
Please note, that we will be putting the site into maintenance from 8.30am NZST on Monday for 1 hour, we will keep you updated on our progress.— Cryptopia Exchange (@Cryptopia_NZ) April 26, 2019
