I told you that this Bitcoin digital currency is not safe and it's a product of financial money manipulations.

A bad news for Bitcoin fans and supporters. Some unknown hackers have target one of the world’s largest Bitcoin exchange and as a result $5M worth of bitcoin have been stolen.

The United Kingdom and Slovenia-based Bitstamp exchange has taken their website offline in order to secure the remaining Bitcoin and making sure the hackers can not access or compromise any more of the remaining amount.

The notice on the site claims only ‘operational wallets’ were compromised on 4th January, but to avoid any further breach; the site will remain offline. All users have been notified about the breach via email.

On January 4th, some of Bitstamp’s operational wallets were compromised, resulting in a loss of less than 19,000 BTC. Upon learning of the breach, we immediately notified all customers that they should no longer make deposits to previously issued bitcoin deposit addresses, according to the notice.

Complete message is available below:

Nejc Kodrič , Bitstamp’s CEO apologised the Bitcoin users on Twitter, making it sure that the company is doing everything to get the culprits.
