Cryptocurrency exchange EtherDelta suspends service following alleged hack

Another day, another hack in the crypto world. This time EtherDelta, a popular exchange for buying cryptocurrencies, has suspended its service after it was apparently hit by an attacker.

EtherDelta is particularly notable for its selection of alt coins (from ICOs) which are often listed on its site before they hit other, higher profile exchanges. The exchange is also easy to use since it doesn’t require user verification of any kind to commence trading, although it doesn’t support fiat so all trades are crypto-to-crypto.

The company said it has “reason to believe” that intruders compromised its server.
