Infographic: An Overview of Compromised Bitcoin Exchange Events

Bitcoin Exchange Events Infographic

The purpose of this infographic is to visualize the size of large cryptocurrency hacks that have occurred in the past as if they all happened today. The hacks included in this infographic extend beyond exchanges, as there were other large entities that experienced cryptocurrency hacks, such as marketplaces like Silk Road 2.0. All hacks in this infographic are displayed as if the price of bitcoin was the same when they occurred, in order to visualize their magnitudes in relation to one another.

The x-axis shows the price of bitcoin at the time of the hack. The y-axis shows the amount lost in the hack (converted to BTC for altcoin hacks). The size of each hack circle was determined by the value of BTC lost using a consistent price, regardless of the actual price at the time.

It is important to note that several of the exchanges (rendered in green) were hacks that did not necessarily involve bitcoin or exclusively involve bitcoin.

An Overview of Compromised Bitcoin Exchange Events

Mt. Gox

Hack Dates: June 2011, February 2014

Amount Lost: 790,000+ BTC

In March 2014, Mt. Gox declared bankruptcy due to a series of hacks and thefts that went unreported for over three years, which were later documented by blockchain analyst Kim Nilsson. The final collapse resulted in a crash of Bitcoin in 2014. Below is a summary of all meaningful hacks that occured.

On March 1, 2011, 80,000 BTC were stolen from Mt. Gox’s hot wallet, as thieves were able to make a copy of the wallet.dat file. In May 2011, hackers stole 300,000 BTC temporarily stored on an off-site wallet, which was on an unsecured, publicly accessible network drive. However, shortly after, the thief got nervous and returned the stolen funds with a 1 percent (3,000 BTC) “keeper’s fee.” In June 2011, a hacker was able to get into Jed McCaleb’s administrator account and manipulate prices, temporarily crashing the market. After the ordeal was over, the hacker managed to steal 2,000 BTC.

In September 2011, a hacker was able to get read-write access to Mt. Gox’s database. The hacker created new accounts on the exchange, inflated user balances and was able to withdraw 77,500 BTC, after which they deleted most of the logs containing evidence of such transactions. In October 2011, a bug in Mark Karpeles’ new wallet software caused 2,609 BTC to be sent to an unspendable null key. The largest hack occurred at some point between September and October 2011 when a hacker was able to obtain a copy of Mt. Gox’s wallet.dat file and stole 630,000 BTC.

Bitcoinica

Hack Date: March 1, 2012

Amount Lost: 43,000 BTC and then another 18,457 BTC

Web hosting provider Linode’s servers were hacked, granting access to the bitcoin stored on pioneering exchange Bitcoinica. The incidents ultimately led to the demise of Bitcoinica.

BitFloor

Hack Date: September 2012

Amount Lost: 24,000 BTC

BitFloor was compromised when a hacker was able to access unencrypted backups of the exchange’s wallets and transfer out the coins.

Poloniex

  • Hack Date: March 4, 2014
  • Amount Lost: 97 BTC
  • In March 2014, Poloniex announced that it has been the victim of an attack due to a previously unknown vulnerability in its coding. As a result, the exchange told all of its customers that it would have their account balances reduced by 12.3 percent.

Bitstamp

Hack Date: January 2015

Amount Lost: 19,000 BTC

Hackers were able to access Bitstamp’s hot wallet. As a result of the theft, Bitstamp began to keep 98 percent of its bitcoins in cold storage.

Cryptsy

Hack Date: July 2014

Amount Lost: 13,000 BTC

In early 2016, Cryptsy collapsed following the theft of 13,000 BTC (and 30,000 LTC) from customers’ wallets.

Bitfinex

Hack Date: August 2016

Amount Lost: 120,000 BTC

Attackers were able to exploit a vulnerability in the multisig wallet architecture of Bitfinex and blockchain security company BitGo.

QuadrigaCX

Shutdown: January 15, 2019

Amount Lost: Approximately $190 million in BTC, ETH and CAD (at time of publication)

The co-founder of QuadrigaCX died on December 9, 2018, allegedly as the only one with access to the exchange’s keys. Evolving courtroom proceedings have revealed fund mismanagement and potential fraud on the part of the exchange. This has led to calls for greater oversight of exchange operations.

2018’s Cluster of Mishaps in Asia

A cluster of hacks and mismanagement of funds by exchanges in 2018 occurred as the result of minimal regulation and security precautions. Consequently, some exchanges were forced to close operations entirely while others received fines.

Coincheck (Japan)

Hack Date: January 2018

Amount Lost: 523 million NEM

Coinrail (South Korea)

Hack Date: June 2018

Amount Lost: $40 million in various cryptocurrencies

On July 15, 2018, Coinrail resumed trading and offered the victims two compensation options: a gradual refund through the purchase of stolen cryptocurrency or compensation in Coinrail’s RAIL tokens, which could then be converted into another cryptocurrency at an inner rate.

BitHumb (South Korea)

Hack Date: June 2018

Amount Lost: $30 million in various cryptocurrencies

The successful hack of BitHumb occurred shortly after the exchange updated its security systems following an earlier hack in 2017.

Decentralized Exchanges

Bancor

Hack Date: July 9, 2018

Amount Lost: $23 million (mostly in ETH)

Hackers were able to gain control of a Bancor exchange wallet and transfer out funds.

BitGrail

Hack Date: February 21, 2018

Amount Lost: $170 million in XRB, now NANO

Following this hack, authorities in Florence confiscated all of the cryptocurrency from the Italian exchange BitGrail to secure the claim of affected users, and the Nano Foundation promised to assist in the protection of interests and compensation for losses. Users accused the exchange of having lax security.

MyBitcoin

Hack Date: July 2011

Amount Lost: 78,739 BTC

Little information was released about the MyBitcoin theft, however, many argue that operator Tom Williams ran it as a scam. The theft resulted in the closure of MyBitcoin, which was once a successful Bitcoin company in the cryptocurrency’s early days.

Bitomat.pl

Hack Date: July 27 2011

Amount Lost: Approximately 17,000 BTC

During a server restart, the remote Amazon service that housed Bitomat.pl’s wallet was wiped. No backups were kept and Mt. Gox later bailed Bitomat.pl out. Ultimately, neither exchange customers nor original owners suffered any loss from the incident.

Evolution Darknet Marketplace

Hack Date: March 2015

Amount Lost: Approximately 44,000 BTC

In March 2015, Evolution Marketplace administrators “Kimble” and “Verto” were suspected of unexpectedly shutting down Evolution, a darknet marketplace that appeared after the seizure of Silk Road 2.0, and vanishing from the internet with all user funds.

Silk Road 2.0

Hack Date: February 2014

Amount Lost: Approximately 4,400 BTC

Defcon, an administrator at underground marketplace Silk Road 2.0, noticed that funds held for the escrow service were stolen from a hot wallet in February 2014. “Transaction malleability,” an issue with the Bitcoin protocol at the time that also affected some other services, was blamed for the theft, though many suspect it was an inside job.

LocalBitcoins Denies Service to Iranian Users

LocalBitcoins

The popular peer-to-peer bitcoin trading network LocalBitcoins has shut down all trading operations for Iranian users.

LocalBitcoins’ website offers a variety of pages for users of different nations and, as of May 24, 2019, the Iranian page displays a message that “LocalBitcoins is currently not available in your selected region,” in English only. In an official correspondence regarding the update, a representative of LocalBitcoins confirmed that Iranians can no longer access the service.

“If you have an account already, you will be able to withdraw your bitcoins, but you will not be able to use the platform for trading,” the representative said of Iranian users.

LocalBitcoins is not the first peer-to-peer trading network to block Iran in this fashion. Major companies such as Coinbase and Binance have also begun rejecting Iranian customers on the basis of their nationality within the past year. Ziya Sadr, an Iranian bitcoiner, told Bitcoin Magazine that the move “shouldn't come as a surprise.”

The reason for these companies’ blocks seems clear: the new wave of sanctions that the United States is levying against Iran and companies that conduct business within the country. Since the Trump administration unilaterally violated an agreement with the Iranian government regarding the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons in 2018, relations between the two countries have been deteriorating.

Iranian citizens have shown interest in the borderless nature of Bitcoin for just this reason, among the other natural advantages of the technology. In April, the country’s first Bitcoin ATM made a splash at a Tehran technology exhibition. Camera crews interviewed several passersby and the topic of using Bitcoin to circumvent unjust sanctions came up repeatedly.

Bitcoin is fundamentally a platform designed to connect users worldwide, regardless of the restrictions imposed on free exchange by various nations. After receiving the Lightning Torch from Bitcoin Magazine via Welsh bitcoiner Bitgeiniog in March, Sadr called Bitcoin “a safe haven.”

“Laws and regulations may force a business to take decisions against their will,” Sadr told Bitcoin Magazine regarding the LocalBitcoins ban. “This will force a business like LocalBitcoins to lose users and revenue, but the market operates and there will always be different business that will serve us.”

Indeed, the space as a whole is not abandoning the country of some 80 million people. Also on May 24, Hodl Hodl announced that it was offering full support for operations in the country. More than just keeping the site open, Hodl Hodl also announced that it would provide Farsi language support (unlike LocalBitcoins’ English-only error message), a discounted exchange fee and a Telegram group specific for Iranian users to establish contact with each other. Bisq, another decentralized bitcoin exchange, has also added Farsi support and offers Iranian bitcoiners a viable alternative.

Ironically, even in the wake of LocalBitcoins’ exit from the country, Iranians “actually now have more and better options for p2p exchanges than before,” Sadr said.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Macro Resistance Could Push Price Down to $6,000s

Price Analysis Video.jpg

Summary:

  1. The bitcoin market is seeing some pullback as the monthly and weekly resistance level has proven to be a tough level to crack. On the daily level we can see a couple of attempts to break the level, but ultimately this was matched with strong selling pressure.
  2. On bitcoin’s four-hour chart we can see that support that once held the market up is now turning into support with a failure to reclaim the level.
  3. If we fail to reclaim the $7,800s, we can expect to see a retest of the $7,300s and if that level doesn’t hold, we will very likely see a test of the low $6,000s.

Trading and investing in digital assets like bitcoin is highly speculative and comes with many risks. This analysis is for informational purposes and should not be considered investment advice.

AT&T Now Accepts Bitcoin

AT&T News Bit

AT&T customers can now use bitcoin to settle their bills online.

According to a press release from the Dallas-based mobile carrier, customers who want to use cryptocurrency to pay their bills can do so by selecting BitPay as a payment option on the myAT&T app or when they log in to their account. BitPay is a popular crypto payment service that helps businesses accept cryptocurrencies for payments online.

“It's exciting for BitPay to support AT&T as it moves to accept bitcoin as a payment option,” Sonny Singh, BitPays chief commercial officer, told Bitcoin Magazine. “Bitcoin lets customers pay from anywhere in the world quickly and easily.”

For AT&T’s part, adding BitPay as a payment option gives its customers more flexibility.

“We’re always looking for ways to improve and expand our services,” said Kevin McDorman, vice president of AT&T’s Communications Finance Business Operations, per the release. “We have customers who use cryptocurrency, and we are happy we can offer them a way to pay their bills with the method they prefer.”

Founder of Defunct Cryptopia Launches New Crypto Exchange

Cryptopia

The founder of defunct cryptocurrency exchange Cryptopia, which entered liquidation following a hack in January 2019, has launched a new exchange called Assetylene.

The LinkedIn employment history for the founder of the failed New Zealand exchange, Adam Clark, indicates that he’s been working on Assetylene since September 2018, which is also when the exchange’s Twitter account went live. With fewer than 100 followers, the account is billed as representing “New Zealand’s most advanced crypto-currency exchange [sic].”

Once a highly prominent exchange in New Zealand, Cryptopia lost nearly 10 percent of its entire liquidity in a hack earlier this year. Attempts to salvage the business ultimately failed. On May 15, 2019, its liquidators formally announced that the company was defunct. At the time of this writing, hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of Cryptopia’s assets are still circulating in an easily tracked manner.

Seeing as Cryptopia did not fully close until May 2019, and Assetylene’s date of founding is listed in the preceding September, it may be that Clark had moved on to this new business well before Cryptopia’s collapse began. However, there’s also reason to believe that Clark set up the new exchange quickly, after Cryptopia’s hack had already occurred.

For one, an archived copy of the Assetylene site shows that it is based on the TradeSatoshi platform, which can set up exchanges within minutes. Furthermore, Clark’s own LinkedIn shows that he was TradeSatoshi’s senior software development engineer when Assetylene was first set up. More damningly, Assetylene has zero liquidity, is not listed on CoinMarketCap and its about page is empty with no trading data found on the site.

Assetylene may very well become a full-fledged exchange with time. However, given the time period that it has apparently remained inactive while Cryptopia was still viable and its current insufficiency, the jury’s still out.

More crypto users can now walk into their local grocery store and purchase cryptocurrencies, thanks to the expansion of a partnership between Bitcoin ATM operator Coinme and coin-cashing machine purveyor Coinstar.

The expansion, announced in a press release, means that bitcoin will be available for purchase at over 2,200 locations in 21 states and the District of Columbia. The partnership began in early 2019 and grew to offer bitcoin purchases at kiosks in 19 states in late April.

Specifically, the kiosks allow users to enter their phone numbers and deposit cash in exchange for bitcoin redemption codes, which can be redeemed on Coinme’s website with an account. Users can purchase up to $2,500 worth at a time and are subject to a 4 percent flat fee.

7,000 BTC Lost in Hangzhou Scam

Lost, Stolen Coins

This article was originally published by 8btc and written by Vincent He.

Nearly 100 victims from various parts of China have reported to the Hangzhou police bureau, claiming that they were deceived by two young men, named Zhou Yi and Li Xiang, who allegedly stole nearly 7,000 bitcoin through exchanging or borrowing.

According to the victims, Zhou and Xiang had claimed on the internet that they could exchange bitcoin as futures and provide interest. The victims trusted them, as some preliminary orders in small amounts were delivered on time. As the pair could offer bitcoin at prices lower than the market rate and delivery seemed stable, they soon collected several thousand orders.

“I began OTC [over-the-counter] Bitcoin trading since 2017, unexpectedly I was cheated by more than 2 million yuan this year,” Mr. Wang, one of the alleged victims, said. “As a senior bitcoin speculator, I always buy low and sell high, I trust my peers.”

But Mr. Wang was not alone, as there appear to be more than 100 victims in this case. It has been reported that more than 7,000 BTC, equating 300 million yuan (≅$43.4 million), was involved.

This apparent bitcoin trade scam was conducted in two WeChat groups. If someone wanted to buy bitcoin, they could negotiate privately in the groups and transfer the money to a designated bank account after confirmation. One or two days later, Zhou Yi would send bitcoin to the buyer’s designated wallet.

”I had been trading with them for more than a year,” Mr. Zhang, another one of the victims, said. “I first traded with them last summer and then bought bitcoins from them three times a week until they lost touch in April. The amount of each transaction [was] about two or three million yuan. In nearly a year, the volume of transactions has reached billions of yuan. Their price [was] very low. I earned nearly one million yuan before.”

Aside from trading bitcoin as futures, the pair was also borrowing bitcoin and promising interest. They gave 100 to 120 yuan worth of BTC to victims as interest, so 90 percent of the victims would deposit bitcoin into their account. When victims pushed them for the release of these bitcoin, they would always transfer some money as compensation before disappearing.

Now Zhou and Xiang have been arrested for “illegal public deposit absorption” and the case is pending further investigation. The biggest concern for victims is how to determine the nature of the case. Some of the victims are not satisfied with the initial charges.

“We just want to give the police more information to prove that they knew at the beginning of March that they couldn’t issue coins, and that the subsequent transactions were not only illegal public deposit absorptions, but also a fraud,” a victim said.

So, where is the legal boundary for OTC Bitcoin trading?

“It is legal to own bitcoins in China,” said Sa Xiao, a council member at the Bank of China Law Research Association, as cited by The Beijing News. Additionally, Xiao considers the occasional exchange of bitcoin between individuals as legal.

Australian Civil Servant Caught Mining Crypto With Government Hardware

Miners

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) has charged a government employee alleged to have misused government IT infrastructure for personal cryptomining operations, per a press release.

In the release, the AFP states that the unnamed 33-year-old man is an IT contractor with the Australian government, who took advantage of his access to “manipulate programs to use the processing power of the agency’s computer network for cryptocurrency mining.”

For his effort, the report claims he earned AU$9,000 (around $6,200) from the mining operation.

He was subsequently charged for the unauthorized modification of restricted data and the unauthorized modification of data to cause impairment. The charges mentioned carry a maximum sentence of 2 years and 10 years, respectively.

Speaking on the matter, Acting Commander Chris Goldsmid, manager of cybercrime operations, said the civil servant in question will be prosecuted for his actions.

“Australian taxpayers put their trust in public officials to perform vital roles for our community with the utmost integrity,” Goldsmid said, per the release. “Any alleged criminal conduct which betrays this trust for personal gain will be investigated and prosecuted.”

Earlier this year, Matthew McDermott, an IT manager for the Florida Department of Citrus (FDoC), was arrested for using the department’s computers to mine cryptocurrencies. According to the report, McDermott used his employer’s computers to mine various digital assets, particularly bitcoin and litecoin. His actions were said to have cost the State Department about $825 in additional utility bills from October 2017 to January 2018.
