加密货币交易所BitGrail宣称2亿美元加密货币被窃

近日,意大利加密货币交易所BitGrail发布公告称,有人通过非授权交易从平台服务器上窃取了1700枚纳米币。按照11美元的交易价格核算,失窃金额约为2亿美元。根据Coinmarketcap的数据,纳米币是目前全球价值排名第24位的加密货币。

尽管平台对投资者及时表达了歉意,并声称已经将该事件提请警方调查。但是,投资者似乎并不买账,并对失窃的真相产生了怀疑。

该公司最近的举动更是增加了消费者的担忧。2018年1月,BitGrail停止了所有纳米币、lisk和cryptoforescast代币的提现和存款。该交易所表示,将为其客户推出强制性身份验证和反洗钱协议,然而该平台此前一直声称其不与政府或银行合作。因此,一些用户指责BitGrail可能策划了一起所谓的“投资退出机制骗局”,并导致纳米币当日价格下挫20%。

其实,加密货币失窃早已经不是什么新鲜事。近几年来,先后有多个平台“中招”:

COINCHECK:上个月,日本加密货币交易所价值5亿多美元的NEM加密货币被盗。

BITFINEX:2016年,香港Bitfinex交易所声称价值约7200万美元的比特币被盗。

MT. GOX:这家总部位于东京的交易所在声称黑客偷走了价值近5亿美元的比特币之后于2014年申请破产。

CRYPTSY:该平台于2014年被盗11325枚比特币,盗窃方至今为止。去年7月,一位美国联邦法官下令该平台停止交易,并在未对集体诉讼作出回应后向客户支付820万美元赔付金。

此外,路透社也为我们总结了几个比较“著名”的加密货币失窃案,其中包括Bter在2015年损失了7170比特币; BitMarket.eu(2012年有18,788比特币丢失); Bitfloor(2012年损失24,000比特币)和Bitcoinica(2012年期间三次黑客共损失102,101比特币)。

Italian cryptocurrency exchange BitGrail has announced the theft of nearly $200 million from its servers. However, some investors and developers are skeptical.

The company reported that around 17 million nano coins belonging to investors had been stolen through unauthorised transactions. Trading above $11 a token at the time, the stolen amount totaled about $200 million. Nano is ranked as the number 24 cryptocurrency by value, according to Coinmarketcap.

We extend our sincerest apologies to our customers and to all those involved in the illegal transfer of Nano on our platform,” BitGrail wrote.

“Today a charge about those fraudulent activities has been submitted to the competent authorities and now is under police investigation.”

The announcement was greeted with suspicion fueled by the company’s recent moves. In January BitGrail halted all withdrawals and deposits of nano, as well as the lisk and cryptoforecast tokens. The exchange said it would introduce obligatory identity verification and anti-money laundering protocols for its clients, in spite of claiming that it doesn’t work with governments or banks. Some users accused the exchange of planning a so-called “exit scam”, prompting the price of nano to drop 20 percent at the time.

This is not the first major heist from cryptocurrency exchanges in recent years:

COINCHECK: Last month the Japanese crypto exchange saw over $500 million stolen in NEM cryptocurrency.

BITFINEX: The Hong Kong exchange claimed about $72 million worth of bitcoin was stolen in 2016

MT. GOX: The Tokyo-based exchange filed for bankruptcy in 2014 after claiming hackers stole nearly half a billion US dollars’ worth of bitcoin.

CRYPTSY: Last July, a US federal judge ordered the defunct exchange to pay $8.2 million to customers after it failed to respond to a class-action lawsuit. The court ruled that 11,325 bitcoin were stolen in 2014 and the thief was not found.

Reuters cites other notable heists including Bter which lost 7,170 bitcoins in 2015; BitMarket.eu (18,788 bitcoins lost in 2012); Bitfloor (24,000 bitcoins lost in 2012) and Bitcoinica, which lost a total of 102,101 bitcoins in three hacks during 2012.
