Hacked cryptocurrency exchange Cryptopia temporarily resumed trading on this Monday, according to information from the order book on its website. To date, trading has been stopped, and the company itself has not made any announcements on this matter. The total volume of transactions on the exchange, which ceased trading services about two months ago, in the last 24 hours amounted to a little more than 10 BTC.

In a message not related to today's test launch of trades, the exchange announced that it would send letters to all clients affected by the hacker attack. A copy of the letter is available on the Cryptopia website. In it, the exchange describes the circumstances of the hacking and its further actions.

The company also confirmed that it will pay damages to affected users. Customers who kept cryptocurrency stolen from the exchange will see in their accounts withdrawal records without transaction identifiers, reflecting the extent of the damage. They will get Cryptopia Loss Marker (CLM), which are records in the database of payments due to them.

According to the announcement, the company expects to proceed with the payment of compensation and resume trading until the end of the month after the completion of the necessary legal procedures.
