Now, the withdrawal of cryptocurrencies from Upbit is directly dependent on the amount of Korean won deposited 24 hours after the withdrawal request. Withdrawal deferral applies only to fiat deposits when exchanged for cryptocurrency.
There are no restrictions on fiat withdrawals, Upbit reports. Exchange representatives said the decision to impose restrictions was made to prevent cases of abuse of voice phishing.
The restrictions on Upbit occur exactly one year after the exchange suffered a major attack. In November 2019, the exchange was forced to suspend accepting and withdrawing funds for two weeks after noticing a suspicious transaction, as a result of which a total of 340 thousand ETH was stolen from the exchange..
It should be noted that attacks on cryptocurrency exchanges entered the top 3 in terms of payback over the entire existence of the industry. In total, attackers carried out 87 successful attacks on crypto-exchanges and raised $ 4.8 billion in total, which is $ 55.4 million per hack.
