On Monday, January 11, the popular crypto trading platform Crypto.com has suspended all deposits and withdrawals citing some “unauthorized activity” taking place at some accounts. However, it has restored some of the accounts back and withdrawal services stating that the accounts are safe.

Update: Withdrawal services have been restored.
All funds are safe.

It will take time to clear the backlogs. We appreciate your patience. https://t.co/ZKMfyTMebi

Several users complained on social media that their digital asset holdings worth tens of thousands of dollars had disappeared from the exchange. Although Crypto.com is claiming that the accounts are safe, blockchain security and data analytics firm Peckshield noted that the exchange has lost a staggering $15 million or at least 4,600 ETH in the recent hack.

The @cryptocom loss is about $15M with at least 4.6K ETHs and half of them are currently being washed via @TornadoCash https://t.co/PUl6IrB3cp https://t.co/6SVKvk8PLf pic.twitter.com/XN9nmT857j

The funds have been reportedly moved using Tornado Cash which makes it difficult to trace. Technical issues on crypto trading platforms have been a very common thing off lately. During the peak demand, even some of the most popular crypto exchanges have been facing wide outages.

Crypto.com is one of the most popular trading platforms in the United States and serves more than 10 million customers. We would like to get further clarity from Crypto.com on this matter.
