It is reported that the deposit and withdrawal of major cryptocurrencies with EXMO, which include Bitcoin, XRP and USDT, are planned to be opened December 25-26, 2020. The withdrawal of fiat funds will be restored approximately at the same time, the exchange writes..
EXMO emphasizes that for deposits, users now need to create a new wallet address. Deposits to old wallet addresses will not be credited, EXMO reported.
Recall that earlier EXMO froze the withdrawal of cryptocurrencies after revealing an abnormal withdrawal of funds from exchange wallets to unknown addresses. The exchange found out that the number of stolen funds is 6%, and not 5%, as previously stated. Exchange contacted CipherTrace, Chainalysis, and Crystal to identify attackers.
“An internal security audit showed that the withdrawal affected hot wallets BTC, XRP, ZEC, USDT, ETC and ETH, which is about 5 percent of total assets,” the announcement said..
For the first time, the exchange identified suspicious transactions on December 21 at 05:27 Moscow time.
Funds are safe
EXMO claims that they immediately reacted to the incident and withdrew the remaining funds from the hacked hot wallets. The exchange also assured that it will cover all damage from its own insurance fund:
“We assure you that in the event that users have lost funds, EXMO will fully compensate the damage from its own insurance fund”.
