After the Cryptopia exchange was hit by a big hack back in mid-January which resulted in a loss of around $16 million in Ethereum and other ERC20 tokens, it has been struggling to reopen and find any kind of relevance.

 

Cryptopia decides to liquidate:

The matter of hack was made worse by the fact that the exchange was already becoming completely irrelevant at the time of the hack. Cryptopia has now gone into liquidation and suspended trading operations with the company saying that they have been unable to reduce costs and to be profitable.

 

It was decided that liquidation was the best path forward for all the stakeholders. While the liquidation takes place, all trading and withdrawals have been suspended and the process may take months to resolve.

 

The users still have their funds locked up in the exchange and they are unable to withdraw them because Cryptopia controls the private keys. If ever it becomes possible for the users to withdraw their cryptocurrencies remains to be seen.

 

What kind of obligations will the exchange have to the stakeholders may impact the kind of obligations they have to their users and the funds of the users that are stuck on the exchange.
