  • Altsbit exchange hack - 50% funds gone

    Altsbit seems like a tiny crypt exchange, i never heard of it til this weeks hack. Seems like almost 50% of users funds are gone forever . Remember guys, "not your keys, not your Bitcoin", keep your coins off exchanges!

    1. On February 5, 2020 the exchange Altsbit suffered an attack by hackers, in the attack unfortunately a certain quantity of coins were stolen from the platform. After a careful analysis we managed to understand the stolen quantities, fortunately a good part of the coins were kept on cold storage, these coins will be returned to the users of Altsbit exchange not having the possibility to compensate for these losses, they will be distributed among all users of the platform each coin will have its calculation based on the percentage that was saved during the attack

    2. Current verified losses are:

    BTC Lost 6,929 coins out of 14,782 - 7.853 will be returned to users. 53.10% (Refunded)
