A Canadian cryptocurrency exchange has closed down, claiming that a hacker had withdrawn all the funds. But many are suggesting that this is nothing more than an exit scam.
A Scam I Am?
The exchange, MapleChange, opened in May and listed 62 tokens, including Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum. Volume was modest, peaking at $ 67k, but there were enough regular users to amass a healthy balance sheet. According to some sources, the amount stolen in the ‘hack’ was 913 bitcoin (close to $ 6 million).
