One of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges Kraken the night before, denied information about the mass dismissal of its employees due to security concerns. Rumors began to spread after a Reddit user under the pseudonym throwaway34034324 posted a message about panic in the canadian office of the exchange, reports the portal of the Finance Magnates.
Supposedly this centre in Halifax will be closed due to the fact that the marketplace has faced difficulties and has launched a mass dismissal of employees. In addition, it was reported that the exchange plans to close its canadian office due to problems with its security.
The panic intensified after the another user of the social network MysteriousPlankton said that, according to him, already 50 employees, responsible for safety, received an offer to write a statement on the dismissal.
To reassure customers, the administration of the Kraken published a post on Twitter in which he said that the company is operating normally. Security service shopping sites also did not encounter any problems.
We will remind, earlier it was reported that the Kraken has criticized an article by Bloomberg journalists, which provoked the growth of speculative sentiment in the cryptocurrency market.
