Victims of the hack of cryptocurrency exchange-Cryptopia-step closer to redemption

For more than a year ago, there was a New Zealand cryptocurrency exchange-Cryptopia is hacked, the hacker had more than $ 16 million on-air PAGE-20 of tokens to be extracted. A year later, there is finally some good news for the users of the exchange. The supreme court of New Zealand has made two public statements about the case.
The report is 74 pages, but one thing is very important: cryptomunten are included in the ‘property sheet’. Despite the fact that the tokens are held in a joint account, the user is the owner of the coins, and it is not in the room.
