Bitcoin Gold

Cryptopia is very opposed to supporting new coins which fork from BTC as they are inherently a giant undertaking for an exchange to do. The risk involved in forking BTC is not minor, and having to move all BTC in cold storage is even less minor; Cryptopia is gravely concerned that BCH has set a dangerous precedent for new coins being created and airdropped in this manner. BitcoinGold doesn't have the Developers, Community or verified information on how the fork will be conducted that assisted BitCoinCash in being split and adopted by exchanges. Cryptopia does not currently intend to perform the split, however we reserve the right to change our position should more information come to light.

Introducing CryptopiaFeeShares (CEFS) Token

Cryptopia is proud to list the CryptopiaFeesShare (CEFS) token on our exchange and market place - the market is live now. As a champion of blockchain adoption, Cryptopia has upgraded its shareholder dividend method from the traditional mechanisms of paying a fixed amount of dollars in profit to each shareholder. Cryptopia will take 4.5% of its gross fees collected each month for each of the base markets and distribute that portion of the fees among all CEFS holders as at the end of that month. CEFS were created and allocated to our shareholders based on the shares that they owned; 6300 CEFS tokens exist currently and CEFS tokens will not be reissued. Cryptopia has chosen to do this for several reasons: - So that Cryptopia can modernize its shareholder and equity mechanisms. - So that CEFS can be a living use case for a blockchain application in a corporate world. - So that our users can invest or divest in Cryptopia as they wish in an automated manner. Happy trading.

DOT Swap Update

Some of you will have noticed that the DOT wallet has been in maintenance for the last couple of days. This is because we have been finalizing development of the DOT swap to the Ubiq platform. You can read about the Ubiq platform and get your new wallet here https://ubiqsmart.com/. We are very excited about this change and have high hopes for the future of DOT on the Ubiq platform. Here’s how the swap is going to work: • Any confirmed balance of DOT you had on Cryptopia has been swapped 1:1 for the new token • Any deposits received in the next 30 days will be swapped by us, just follow the steps on our forum: https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/Forum/Thread/2469 The final date to swap your DOT will be the 29th of October 2017. After this date we will still consider swaps but we will process them manually via Support Tickets. Why did we choose to swap DOT? DOT recently joined the list of coins that have affected by 51% attacks. We managed to identify and respond to the attack sooner rather than later though the attacker did manage to make an impact on the market. We covered the lost DOT from our own reserves. Due to the amount of hash that can readily and easily be thrown around at small networks these days we had to ask ourselves if it still makes sense for DOT to run on its own network as it is clear to us that we cannot afford secure the network ourselves, and that the demand for DOT is not sufficient enough to attract the amount of distributed computing power required to sufficiently secure the network either. We decided to perform a swap of the DOT blockchain to a Ubiq asset, the use case of DOT is not based around mining or proof of work so we don't think anything is lost in moving DOT to a token platform

Growth and Support Improvements

For a long time Cryptopia has had the best support in the industry with the fastest response and resolution times. However, we realise that over the last month or two we have slipped behind the high standards we hold for ourselves. We'd like to acknowledge some of the concerns we're hearing from customers around our support response and resolution times and explain some of the reasons for this, what we are doing about it, apologise for any inconvenience caused, and thank everyone for bearing with us in this transitionary stage in our company's growth. Cryptopia has had explosive growth this year, we've gone from 2 full time employees managing 200 coins on 15 servers with 3,000 users and 200 concurrent sessions, to 12 full time employees and a number of contractors managing 550 coins on 50 servers with 250,000 users and 30,000 concurrent sessions. This growth shows no signs of slowing down. To cope with this, we have been very busy behind the scenes scaling the business. Our fully proprietary software is now extremely scalable and capable of continued exponential growth without breaking a sweat. Our support team has seen the largest staff growth, with over half our staff members dedicated to customer support. We are hiring more quality people as fast as we can find them, however throwing more people at tickets doesn't help without them being able to effectively contribute by also improving our support systems, procedures, and policies. So we've made some significant changes to our internal support systems and these are now having a great effect on our ability to power through tickets and help our users get the answer. We expect to be back up to our regular response and resolution times (including 90% of tickets resolved within 24 hours) within the next week or two. In the meantime, please have patience and refrain from opening multiple tickets for the same issue, and do check our forums for assistance with trading and other things you'd like to know that really don't need technical support to help. There is a wealth of information in there from both our staff and our expert users. That said, we're by no means finished. We've got a number of further improvements and updates on the way to the support system, we will continue to strive to have the best support in the industry. We also have a wealth of exciting new site features and updates on the way, watch this space!

Delist Notice: Signatum

As the vast majority of Signatum customers will be aware, there have been recent issues with this coin, which has led to us putting it in the delisting queue. Signatum is currently scheduled to be delisted on 20 Oct 2017. Read on for the reasons why this has been deemed our best course of action at this time. The combination of us having 18,000 addresses and users mining directly to our addresses caused there to be over a million small inputs. This caused the wallet to irreparably break while syncing. We attempted to resolve this many times, using different distros and hardware configurations, however this did not work. If we synced the blockchain first, then imported the keys, it would start importing 5-10 keys / second, however this rate drops to about 1 key every 3-4 seconds after ~15k. After a week of importing keys on several instances the wallets corrupted and crashed every time. We also tried importing the keys first then syncing the blockchain, in this case it synced back to around 19th August and then also crashed and corrupted. We have determined this to be likely due to the leveldb library used within the coin which is extremely out of date. It is the same library used in many other coins, however most use a much more up to date version. This is why the Signatum wallet had been in maintenance for around the last month, while we have been constantly attempting to work with it. During this time, we had a Signatum team member visit our office in person and found no issues with our implementation of Signatum, and observe the sync issues. We have also been in constant communication with a Signatum team member informing of what was happening throughout and were told by him that he was informing the rest of their team. To finally resolve this, we have managed to set up 8 separate wallets and imported 1/8 of the overall keys into each of these. We then had to move transactions around to consolidate the tiny inputs. This is a terribly painful process and not scalable. FYI we are currently having to move coins from the 8 wallets to 1 consolidated wallet to process withdrawals. Once this process is complete, we will then scan the 8 wallets for any missing deposits, so anyone that has made deposits while it has been in maintenance will have to wait until this before their deposits show up so they can withdraw again.(edited) The reason we are now closing the markets is that the Signatum community and now the core Signatum team have blamed us for this issue and are threatening us with litigation, when the issue is purely with the Signatum wallet and out of date codebase. The dev does not seem able or willing to fix the issues with their code. We have put in a very significant amount of time trying to get this up and running so our users can use their coins. However, it is not our responsibility to work with the Signatum codebase (or any other coin) to fix their problems any further, we've already gone well beyond what we should be doing to resolve this. Some users have been comparing us to other exchanges and asking why they don't have a similar problem. We have a significantly higher number of transactions than the other exchanges that currently list this coin. They will run into similar issues when they reach a more significant level of transactions. The problem with Signatum codebase is provable and replicable. They need to fix this or this will happen again wherever Signatum ends up. Signatum now appears to also be threatening Cryptopia with legal action (via twitter) and accusing Cryptopia of not knowing how to use wallets. We run and maintain literally many hundreds of wallets. Signatum built just 1 wallet by copying very old code from elsewhere and don't seem able or willing to update it to something that actually works at scale.

Your credentials are safe on Cryptopia.

Recently we have seen an increase in the volume of failed logon attempts and support requests for advice concerning this. As the vast majority of these attempts fail this indicates our account level security measures have not been breached. The systems we have in place to protect user accounts do not allow for passwords to be accessed, shown, retrieved or otherwise displayed in any form which includes internal sources. Nobody can ever retrieve your password from our system, including Cryptopia staff members. In almost every case of login attempts we are seeing the corresponding email address showing up on reported data leaks, and/or is being used for other internet services. We recommend all Cryptopia users check their email address which is registered with us at sites such as: https://hacked-emails.com/ and https://haveibeenpwned.com/. This can give you an indication to the level of exposure your address has to unwanted attention. The best practice for Cryptopia users is to have an address used EXCLUSIVELY for Cryptopia to reduce potential exposures. In addition to some other industry sites being hacked recently, there has been a significant increase in phishing attempts on crypto-currency exchanges, some of these are extremely clever so you may not have even noticed. Do not ever click on the top result in google/bing to visit a site, as this can be an advertisement that takes you to a site that looks exactly like your normal login page with the "i" in the domain replaced with an "l" for example (which is exactly what happened to another exchange with "i" as the second letter of the domain). Please ensure you follow basic personal security policies by having Two-factor authentication (2FA) turned on for login at the very least, and do not re-use the same password you use on any other site. Cryptopia has a number of 2FA options available including the industry's first and currently only bank-level personalized hardware device (available from Paytopia). Ensure you use only trusted devices and networks and keep your devices clean. It is also very important to ensure your browser is not saving logon information and you LOGOUT at the end of your activities. Be vigilant with any emails received, bookmark the correct site and use this to navigate to us and check the site certificate. - Be safe out there

WAVES network fork

Over the weekend the WAVES network forked due to a new version of the WAVE node being release as an update, however the update was not marked as mandatory unfortunately this meant 70% of the network did not update and thus cause the network to split between 0.6.6 nodes and 0.7.5-0.7.6 nodes. All out 0.7.5 nodes ended up on the 0.6.6 fork and after updating to 0.7.6 we still managed to get half out nodes on one fork and the other half on the other. Due to the lack of proper announcements of mandatory/hardforks of the WAVES network we can no longer risk hosting WAVES tokens on Cryptopia. As of today we will no longer be accepting new WAVES token listings and we are reviewing currently listed tokens to see if they are safe to keep, All WAVES markets have been closed, users have until the 15/10/2017 to withdraw their tokens. For all waves users who have not updated to 0.7.6 please do so now as it is NOT and optional update but a required update.

Cryptopia policy regarding BCH/BCC

In response to demand from our users Cryptopia’s development team have worked diligently through the weekend to design and create a process to automate the split between BTC and Bitcoin Cash Coin (BCH) safely for ourselves and our users. If a fork should occur on or after 1 August, Cryptopia will support the Bitcoin Cash Coin (BCH). While we consider BCH to be an alt-coin and we’re skeptical of the rushed implementation, we have determined a process to support BCH that we’re confident won’t have any impact on the security of our BTC balances and orders; The safety of your funds remains our number one priority. The process of splitting tokens creates risk for us and our users, however we are confident that the processes we have created will allow us to transition securely and gracefully at this time. Users with BTC in their Cryptopia accounts will be credited with an equal amount of BCH should the fork occur. BCH/BTC BCH/LTC BCH/DOGE markets will be available after the fork has occurred. As an extra security precaution, we will be disabling BTC deposits and withdrawals on 31 July 2017 at 23:00 hrs UTC to ensure that all BTC funds stored at Cryptopia remain safe and secure. Once we are sure the network is stable and safe, deposits and withdrawals will be resumed. Trading will remain unaffected throughout. Users will be unable to deposit or withdraw BCH for up to 48 hours after the fork while Cryptopia monitors the networks and is comfortable that our customer funds of BTC and BCH have been appropriately stored. We are monitoring developments closely so please monitor our Twitter feed, Facebook page and website for the latest news, updates and developments.

Dotcoin(DOT) Coin Swap

Recently there has been a large uptick in coins being affected by 51% attacks, and unfortunately DOT joined this list earlier in the week. We managed to identify and respond to the attack sooner rather than later though the attacker did manage to make an impact on the market. This is the reason DOT has been in maintenance while we tried to determine the best response to the issue. Due to the amount of hash that can readily and easily be thrown around at small networks these days we had to ask ourselves if it still makes sense for DOT to run on its own network as it is clear to us that we cannot afford secure the network ourselves, and that the demand for DOT is not sufficient enough to attract the amount of distributed computing power required to sufficiently secure the network either. We've decided to perform a swap of the DOT blockchain to a WAVES asset, the use case of DOT is not based around mining or proof of work so we don't think anything is lost in moving DOT to a token platform. A final block height will be defined to allow for a swap period of approximately 90 days before the cut off of new blocks being included in the swap. The new token will be created and swapped 1:1 with the old chain with the new asset matching the coin count of the old chain up to the cutoff block height. Cryptopia will also keep a copy of the old blockchain so that old coins prior to the cutoff block height can continue to be swapped. Cryptopia will allow for a full year before the swap process is closed and swaps of coins on the old chain will no longer be accepted. Cutoff Block: 1,200,000 Total DOT at block 1,200,000: 522,500,000 DOT New DOT Asset Total: 522,500,000 DOT If you already have your DOT on Cryptopia then there's nothing further you need to do everything will be swapped automatically, this included all DOT currently in Term Deposits that will remain uninterrupted. If you do not currently have your DOT on Cryptopia and want the swap to happen automatically then you must deposit your DOT to Cryptopia before block 1,200,000. If you fail to swap your DOT before block 1,200,000 you will have to raise a support ticket to get your swap sorted. Cryptopia has covered the DOT that was lost in the 51% attack from their own DOT reserves, so all users will remain completely unaffected by the attack. The final date for swapping your DOT will be 2018-07-01.

Relisting of ETH

After we added support for ERC20 tokens the Cryptopia support team were flooded with users sending ETH to ERC20 token addresses and demanding we credit their accounts. This has also been a long standing issue with sending ETH to ETC addresses, it reached a point where we needed to install and sync an ETH wallet to recover user funds sent to wrong addresses as some of the amounts where in the 10's or even 100's of ETH. Since we have the wallet synced and no other way to stop users sending ETH to ETC or ERC20 tokens in some desperate attempt to get ETH on Cryptopia we have decided to just list the damn thing and remove this support burden on our staff. I think you all know Cryptopia's feelings towards ETH after its money motivated bail out of the DAO and removing the immutability of the blockchain, however we also want to provide a safe place for our users to trade, a lot of users have mentioned they only use other sites for ETH and Cryptopia for everything else. So basically, if our users want to do mETH we will provide them with a safe environment to do so, and will offer support throughout its obvious upcoming dramas. sa_ddam213
