And yet another Bitcoin exchange has bitten the dust. This time it’s Bidextreme.pl. According to the website’s homepage, a hacker (or group of) stole the site’s user portfolio of Bitcoins and Litecoins, though they say “Cash and cash equivalents held in a bank account belonging to the platform users are safe.”
As far as being a Bitcoin exchange goes, Bidextreme says things are on hold.
“We apologize for the inconvenience our users, but we are forced to suspend operations platform bidextreme pending investigation.”
Another unfortunate incident. This is certainly one of the downfalls of Bitcoin. It’s difficult to know who to trust. So when in doubt, use a paper wallet!
