Bitcoin exchange Bitfloor attempts comeback after $250,000 heist
Bitfloor, a fast-growing Bitcoin exchange that was felled by a security breach earlier this month, has resumed operations. Founder Roman Shtylman announced the site’s revival on Google Plus.
The exchange lost Bitcoins valued at about $250,000 in the heist. As a result, Bitfloor was incapable of repaying clients who had deposited Bitcoins, forcing the site to suspend operations. Bitfloor still lacks the funds to repay those users, so it has officially designated those funds as “on hold.”
