A Canadian cryptocurrency exchange has closed down, claiming that a hacker had withdrawn all the funds.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.
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).
