​Resumption of deposits at Bithumb

​Resumption of deposits at Bithumb
Aug 4, 2018 by Rico Wise

Today Bithumb announced the intention to resume deposits that are held on this platform and to resume withdrawal services. This action was going to take place on Saturday. The matter is in the hack on of a hot wallet that was made recently and caused the loss of tokens. The whole amount of lost token can be evaluated in the sum of 30 million dollars. That is why the deposits accumulated on the South Korean exchange platform Bithumb were resumed. This announcement about the resuming of deposits was published as a tweet on the official profile of the exchange platform on Twitter.

It should be noted that not all digital coins were approved for this action. At the moment such coins can be processed in the first step of resumption:

  • Bitcoin;
  • Ethereum;
  • Ripple;
  • QTUM;
  • Bitcoin cash;
  • Monero;
  • Litecoin;
  • Mithrill;
  • Zcash.

Deposits that were made in other 25 coins still are suspended. One of the most important issues is that addresses of the deposits were changed. It means that users should request new addresses.
