Coinsquare, a popular Canadian exchange, has suffered a data breach. According to the company, customer funds are safe.
Earlier this month, on Twitter, Coinsquare announced that it had detected “unusual activity” on its platform and announced a “maintenance period” to fix the issue.
On Saturday, the Canadian company finally revealed that it was restarting its services, including deposits and withdrawals, without giving more details.
At the same time, Coinsquare sent out an email to its users stating that there was a data breach on its platform, according to Coindesk. An unauthorized third party has managed to access a database containing customers’ personal information such as their name, email address, address, phone number, date of birth, or their account balance.
The cryptocurrency exchange, founded by Virgil Rostand in 2014 in Toronto, nonetheless wants to be confident in the cryptocurrencies of its customers and ensures that assets are “cold protected and not at risk.”
The password was not revealed. We have no evidence that the wrong participant saw the information, ”says an email sent to its users.
Last month, Coinsquare boasted of being the first platform in Canada to be registered as an investment broker with the IIROC regulator.
