New Zealand law enforcers completed investigations at the Cryptopia office and concluded that the marketplace could resume operations at any time, The New Zealand Herald reported.

We have finished the main part of the work required by the High Tech Crime Group at Cryptopia's business premises, although HTCG staff remain there finishing up aspects of their work. Cryptopia management have full access to their facilities and business premises and the Police investigation is not preventing their business from getting up and running again.

However, Merton did not disclose other important details of the investigation and did not even say whether the attacker who had stolen the means was found and how much was stolen.

In the meantime, there are no updates in the Twitter account of the exchange yet, and the message about hacking is still hanging on the exchange's website.
