Claim: Crypto Exchange Lost $500,000 Due to AurumCoin 51% Attack
A little-known cryptocurrency called AurumCoin (AU) has claimed that it was hit by 51 percent attack, and crypto exchange Cryptopia, where the cryptocurrency is listed, lost 15,752.26 AU (approx. $550,000 at the time of writing this article). However, the cryptocurrency has shifted the blame on Cryptopia. On AurumCoin’s website, it has claimed that it is not responsible to anyone since it is an open-source distributed currency. Cryptopia, on the other hand, has not yet acknowledged any loss.
