In yet another suspected ‘heist’, it is said that nearly 438 bitcoins worth over Rs 20 crore were stolen from a top exchange firm in India.
This would make it by far the the biggest cryptocurrency theft in the country so far.
This revelation came about when a Delhi-based cryptocurrency exchange went ahead and filed an FIR with the police.
It is said that the company has accused one of its its official of siphoning off the money from the firm’s wallet.
It is also said that the exchange has urged the government to seize Saxena’s passport, fearing that he may leave the country.
In so far how it happened, the exchange, which has over two lakh users across the country, found that all the bitcoins that were stored offline had vanished.
