Canadian Crypto Exchange Loses $145 Million Because CEO With The Only Password Passes Away

Canadian Crypto Exchange Loses $145 Million Because CEO With The Only Password Passes Away

One of the largest bitcoin exchanges in Canada has reported a loss of almost $ 145 million USD. QuadrigaCX claims to have lost access to the companies cold storage containing a sizeable amount of crypto assets.  Included in the offline cold storage was 26,500 Bitcoin, 430,000 Ether, and 200,000 Litecoin.

From thehackernews.com:

“Following the sudden death of Gerry Cotten, founder and chief executive officer QuadrigaCX, the Canadian exchange this week filed for legal protection from creditors in the Nova Scotia Supreme Court until it locates and secures access to the lost funds.
In a sworn affidavit filed by Cotten’s widow Jennifer Robertson and obtained by Coindesk, Robertson said QuadrigaCX owes its customers some CAD 260 million (USD 198 Million) in both cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, and Ethereum, as well as fiat money.
However, Robertson said the cryptocurrency exchange only has smaller amount in a ‘hot wallet’ (USD 286,000), claiming that to protect its users funds from hackers, majority of coins were kept in a ‘cold wallet’—a physical device that is not connected to the internet—by Cotten, who died of Crohn’s disease on December 9 in Jaipur, India.”

 

But not everybody is buying the story. Some researchers and QuadrigaCX users have been doubtful of the Canadian crypto exchange’s claims. The amount claimed seems higher than it should be. Some claim QuadrigaCX never had access to such a large pool of funds. It could be true but it could also be a sneaky exit scam.  

If the claim is true, the company will be filing for bankruptcy and the crypto assets on the cold storage will never be accessed again.  

Keep your passwords safe friends! And make sure you have a way for your beneficiaries to securely access your passwords and modern-day keys.

STEEM Monsters Is An Epic Blockchain Trading Card Game

STEEM Monsters Is An Epic Blockchain Trading Card Game

STEEM Monsters is a badass new game on the STEEM blockchain! The digital, role-playing, trading card game was created by Jesse Reich.

“Collect and trade cards on the blockchain! Level them up and then compete in individual and Guild PvP Tournaments and EPIC BOSS FIGHTS!”

You can buy cards now on steemmonsters.com! Previously users could only purchase cards with the STEEM cryptocurrency, but now STEEM Monsters is accepting both credit cards and PayPal.

STEEM users are buying these cards up like crazy as they could be worth a pretty penny in the future. We think the card game is pretty revolutionary. We have yet to see someone else create this type of game on a blockchain.

How To Play STEEM Monsters:

A cataclysmic event, known as The Splintering, violently reshaped a once peaceful landscape into six separate kingdoms.

The world was thrust into chaos and war as the inhabitants of the six known Splinters fought for control of what became known as the Splinterlands.

An ancient prophecy foretells of a hero who will reunite the Splinters against the Greater Enemy, saving the world from a near inevitable doom.

Could that hero be you? Choose your Summoner, choose your Monsters, and prepare for battle! The player who builds the best team will find glory on the Battlegrounds, fame on the leaderboards, and fortune in the Grand Tournament!

 

Why Blockchain?

FAST AND FREE

The Steem blockchain has transaction speeds of about 3 seconds, can handle thousands of transactions per second, and zero transaction fees! Unlike other blockchain platforms, that means the only cost is the cards themselves. You can play, buy, sell, and trade at lightning speeds and…for free!

PROVABLE SCARCITY

Thanks to the full transparency of the blockchain’s distributed ledger, it’s easy to see how many of each different card exist in the entire game. So unlike in games like Hearthstone, you can see exactly how rare, and valuable your cards actually are!

TRUE ASSET OWNERSHIP

With the blockchain, your cards are actually yours, and they can only be transfered with your private keys. This means that even the creators of the game cannot take them away from you and you are free to buy, sell, or trade them just like physical trading cards!

VERIFIABLE RESULTS

All of the battle results, and the cards contained in Booster packs, are generated by a published algorithm based on unpredictable data from the blockchain itself. This means that no one, even the creators, can tamper with battle results, or give certain players better cards in packs.
