The New Zealand-based exchange suffered significant losses from the attack - as much as nearly 10% of their total holdings. This could total as much as $16 million USD. Because of this the company is now struggling with the banking relationships. They have had to suspend their service for deposits and withdrawal in their country’s native currency NZ Dollars. They company claims they are continuing to work on the past issues and will resume trading with a small feature set and less coins.“We have resumed trading on 40 trade pairs that we have quantified as secure. We will continue to expand this list as we clear more coins.”

Duke University’s Blockchain Support

 

A blockchain startup called Citizens Reserve has gotten a huge boost recently through a partnership with Duke University. Duke had already been at work supporting the advancement of blockchain technology through educational programs such as their  “Innovation and Cryptoventures” course, launched by Harvey back in 2014. The course is taught by a finance professor at the university. Citizens Reserve is led by a group of former Deloitte blockchain employees, which spent a great deal of time researching the overall scope of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. The company will support the university developing a curriculum on blockchain technology, and connect students with blockchain experts and helping them find jobs in the sector when they graduate.
