Anybody knows what is reason for situation at Bter?

I can imagine.

I am thinking now that it is possible that the attacker(s) is/are targeting exchanges holding NBTs.
At excoin and bter NBT/BTC was the biggest pair in terms of trade volume.
It is possible that CCEDK could be the next target.
I would suggest the need for reducing drastically the current TIER1-TIER2 liquidity at CCEDK right now.

It’s within the realm of possibility, but my personal belief is that it is just exceptionally bad timing.

I tend to approach the situation from another angle – EVERY exchange is a target, all the time.

I’m really sad to see this happen as BTER is where the majority of trade volume was… Melotic exchange might be a good option if they’re open to integrating Nu.

Well, open source just passed, so we might get on some more exchanges because of that.

I agree.

Ccedk is/was under attack. We have been experiencing a DOS attack, all funds are safe though

It seems that CCEDK and Allcoin hold most of Tier1 liquidity right now.
Nu needs to make sure that the liquidity over there is safe.
CCEDK is checking their security right now after undergoing a DOSS attack.
What about Allcoin?
Someone did contact the LPC at Allcoin just in case?

What about Poloniex?

This here is quite interesting to follow:

update from bter twitter

We are preparing for the withdrawals. CNY, USD and NXT withdrawals will be handled first.

What about the NBT held over there by the custodians?

You can now log in to bter, but neither BTC, nor NBT or NSR balances are available, just a “Total funds estimation” in BTC.

bter update feb 22

preparing for the withdrawals.
Due to technical maintenance, suspend the extraction of virtual currency , thank you for your understanding and support

nbt sell side is 93300.908 NBT Total in btc =354.0769 on the buy side is 47699.234 nbt total in btc =178.6336

im pretty sure nubit will get all the NBT back but I doubt any of the lost btc maybe bter will pay them back some how at least getting back 93300.908 NBT Total in btc =354.0769 is not total lost
