The website of the new Zealand cryptocurrency exchange Cryptopia affected by hackers in mid-January, has resumed work in the “read-only”.
Update: The read-only site is now live. The holding balance from the pre 14th Jan is hack and we will be using these holdings as a baseline for calculating rebates moving forwards.

Users can log in to their account and check the account balance. What amount will be displayed to match the status of the account as of January 14, up to the time of withdrawal by an attacker. In the future, these data will be used by the exchange in calculating payments to victims.
Guide Cryptopia urged users to update the passwords and data for two-factor authentication. Other functionality of the site is currently unavailable.
Also, the exchange for the first time since the break-in said about refunds to affected users, indicating that it is on the “final stage”.
Additional information the site promised to publish later.
We will remind, hackers broke into the exchange Cryptopia in the middle of January, stealing, according to analyst firm Elementus, $16 million. Soon, the company said that from Cryptopia stolen another $3.2 million.
The venue claimed that in the worst scenario, lost a maximum of 9.4% of all their funds.
