The New Zealand crypto exchange Cryptopia, which many investors consider risky and volatile, but at the same time valuable due to the listing of exotic digital assets, once again became a cause for concern among the members of the crypto community. On Tuesday, it suddenly, though for a while, shut down for maintenance.
“We are closing for maintenance, but when we return, we will be ready to work. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this failure, “- wrote the company.
Although initially the stock exchange promised to cope with the necessary procedures for 90 minutes, the maintenance lasted longer than expected – several hours. As always in such cases, users began to assume that the case was in a hacker attack, but these rumors were not eventually confirmed.
Exchange Cryptopia experienced problems before – for example, for various reasons her wallets were disconnected and the withdrawal of funds was suspended. After the maintenance was completed this time, users also began to report problems with withdrawal of funds.
Compared to large cryptocurrency exchanges, whose daily trading volume is hundreds of millions of dollars, Cryptopia looks rather modest – over the past 24 hours it has passed 4.5 million dollars, which account for all of its 602 digital assets. Recently, activity on some of the assets of the exchange suddenly increased, and before leaving for maintenance, the leading token was DGB.
Last year, Cryptopia launched a NZDT token, tied to the rate of the New Zealand dollar.
In December, users of Cryptopia reported blocking their accounts for no apparent reason and complained that they can not solve the problem through the helpdesk, since they are waiting for a response more than a month.
