The Owner Of Currency.com Spoke About A Large-scale Ddos Attack On The ExchangeHenry Fisher
Cryptocurrency exchange Currency.com has been hit by a massive DDoS attack after it announced that it had stopped serving users from the Russian Federation. The owner of the company Viktor Prokopenya said The Sunday Times that Russian hackers were behind the incident.
“You don’t have to be a scientist [чтобы понять это]. We have experienced attacks before, like all financial firms, but the scale of the latter was incredible – ten times more than we have ever seen, ”he said.
Previously based in Belarus, Currency.com sent out to users from Russia service termination notices. Since April 12, they have been banned from replenishing their accounts, and on April 26 they will be deprived of the opportunity to conclude new transactions.
According to Prokopen, the exchange has about 500,000 Russian clients. The millionaire condemned the decision of Binance, Coinbase and other companies that continued to work with residents of the Russian Federation.
“Everyone in the financial community needs to do their best and take a principled stance. You must condemn Russia’s actions in the strongest possible terms. This is not some political issue like Brexit or Trump, this is a terrible war. It is impossible to approve it – no one approves of it, except for the hostages of Russian television, ”he said.
Recall that the Japanese government banned local cryptocurrency companies work with sanctioned persons.
