Polish Cryptocurrency Exchange Shuts Down Overnight, Taking Funds With It

John Biggs
“This initiative is an answer to great transformation”, the regulators said.

The owners disappeared and the president, Tomasz Zbigniew Wiewióra, was not available to answer questions regarding the exit scam. One Coinroom client found that Wiewióra opened a business in Estonia after leaving Poland. Users also believe that the company ran afoul of the KNF, the Polish economic authority. Łukasik noted that the same thing happened to another exchange, Bitmarket24, resulting in an overnight closure. Coinmarket was under investigation but survived a few months after being entered in to the KNF’s black list.

One former user thinks the cash is long gone.
