As we prepare to open we have secured 35% of coins on our exchange to new wallets. We need to complete this exercise fully prior to opening the exchange. Please keep an eye on our page for further updates on this.

This week, the exchange also stated that it had implemented the possibility of canceling applications that were posted by users before the hack was made in mid-January. The trading platform API is still disabled, so users need to cancel orders via the website. The company later resumed its support service so that users could resolve issues related to the reset of two-factor authentication and passwords. 

Earlier, representatives of Cryptopia stated that they could not resume trading on their platform, despite permission from the police, until they completed a number of procedures aimed at preventing further violations in its activities.

At the moment, the Bitcoin price index on BitMEX is half of the Bitstamp data, half of the Coinbase Pro data. Such a “centralization” led last week to the fact that after an unknown trader realized the sale of 5,000 BTC at $ 6,200 at Bitstamp, a large number of long positions were automatically eliminated at BitMEX.

Earlier in May, Kraken was named the most transparent exchange with real trading volume, data on which is 99% consistent with the information provided by the site.
