Months after suffering a major breach & loss of customer funds, New Zealand-based crypto exchange Cryptopia remains shuttered amid several false dawns.

The postponement comes after the exchange made various changes aimed at enhancing security following an attack over six weeks ago. The Cryptopia attack had directly targeted user wallets numbering over 76,000. The attackers obtained private user keys & managed to steal tokens worth millions of dollars.
