In a matter of weeks, the demise of QuadrigaCX, once Canada’s largest Bitcoin exchange, has reached the front pages of mainstream media outlets worldwide. 彭博, 路透社报道， 或 福克斯商业新闻 是众多值得注意的网点之一。
虽然他们对这种情况的报道已经揭示了这一点 应该 众所周知，相对较少关注受影响的人，据称是115,000。 有些人的资金损失接近于零，而其他人则失去了人生储蓄。 彭博 最近坐了下来 with one Canadian client of the platform, who lives in the same city that the exchange purportedly has headquarters in. His story wasn’t pretty. Please heed his story.
Unfortunately, the QuadrigaCX case hasn’t been without its victims. In the aforementioned interview, victim Tong Zou explained his story. Zou, a thirty-something Canadian software engineer who held a variety of developing stints (BitTorrent的硅谷的Spiget，沃尔玛等，几个月前搬到温哥华寻找新的东西。 正如预期的那样，Zou试图将他的储蓄转移到美国金融机构的账户中，这些账户的价值超过了400,000。
While such a move is mandated, especially for so-called “repats” looking to start anew in their own home nation, Zou chose a peculiar route. This was, of course, to purchase Bitcoin on American exchanges, before moving said cryptocurrency holdings over to Canadian exchanges for subsequent liquidation.
像许多加拿大加密经济的新人一样，邹被吸引了 QuadrigaCX, determining that the Vancouver-based exchange was the right platform for him to use. Maybe, he thought that he could visit the exchangeXCHARXs XCHARXofficesXCHARX if things went south. Anyhow, he deposited his Bitcoin, effectively a majority of his liquid assets, and liquidated the cryptocurrency for $560,000 Canadian dollars.
由于邹先生需要钱存入温哥华房产，他发出了提款请求。 然而，Quadriga未能缴纳会费，并且让Zou挂了好几个月。 他说：
“I wasn’t using it for trading — I just wanted to move my money over to my Canadian bank account… What I didn’t know was that my withdrawal would be pending or incomplete and it never got deposited in my bank account. I’ve been waiting four months so far.”
While online hearsay indicates that users receive their withdrawals… eventually, Quadriga’s sudden closure likely put a nail in the coffin for Zou, so to speak.
Zou, who believes that it isnXCHARXt curtains closed for the $422,000 that he is owed, is currently coordinating class-action efforts with his fellow victims, who have purportedly turned to Bennet Jones LLP and McInnes Cooper.
这个最近令人痛心的故事来自区块链研究单位Elementus， 泄露 that thereXCHARXs a chance that QuadrigaCX never held 430,000 Ethereum (ETH) in its supposed XCHARXcold storageXCHARX wallets. Rumor has it that the company 从未持有$ 100万 值得比特币。
