Bitsane exchange house disappears with millions in customers’ cryptocurrencies
The Irish exchange house Bitsane may have made theirs after the possible theft of user cryptocurrencies.
Forbes reported on Thursday that the Bitsane exchange house, which offers spot transactions of cryptocurrencies and gained popularity as one of the main XRP exchange platforms, was disconnected and eliminated its accounts from social networks. The emails sent by Forbes were returned as not delivered, as detailed.
The users of the exchange house assure that they have possibly lost sums ranging from USD 5,000 to USD 150,000 in cryptocurrencies. The total could amount to millions of US dollars.
On the website specialized in cryptocurrencies CoinMarketCap, Bitsane operations information has not been updated for more than 10 days.
One user, who asked to remain anonymous, claimed to have lost USD 150,000, according to Forbes:
“I was trying to transfer XRP to bitcoin or cash or something like that, and I kept appearing ‘temporarily out of order’. I knew immediately that there was some kind of problem. I tried again to see if those tickets were still pending, and Bitsane was no longer accessible.”
Launched in 2016, Bitsane was registered in Ireland as Bitsane LP, with Aidas Rupsys as CEO and Dmitry Prudnikov as CTO. Forbes says that Prudnikov’s LinkedIn account has also been removed, and that both have not been contacted for his comments.
Apparently, some users suspect that another company, Bitsane Limited, founded by Maksim Zmitrovich, may be related to the possible theft of cryptocurrencies. Forbes managed to talk to Zmitrovich, but he denied involvement and said he had not spoken to Prudnikov in more than five months.
