We're in the same boat on that, though I don't trade or own a lot of crypto. The very moment money enters anything, everything become irrational, emotional and focus completely shifts from the benefits of a technology to greed and selfism.
I don't think an apology is in order on my end. Quite the other way around. This situation continues to look very bad for this project. Self awarding tokens is a big deal and that was certainly done here by Tarmo's admission. You claim that it was luck but that sort of luck is astronomical. In crypto and in life, the simplest explanation tends to be the correct one. This looks like the team was self dumping. It's up to the team to prove otherwise.

плохие новости: Byteball is Moscow-based.

The main hub could be compromised, giving every transaction to the Russian government.
Yeah there's nothing suspicious here. Tony realized that crypto needs features that allow compliance to regulations. And he made it in a brilliant way that you don't have to share your documents in every random use case. If an ICO only needs a proof you are not a US resident, you don't have to show them your photo ID, simply show that you have a profile attested by the non-US attestor.
Right now, they have frozen all wallets which is definitely in everyone's best interest. We can only wait and see what happens. But right now, neither Cryptopia nor the New Zealand police and cyber crime unit has made any announcements about what exactly has been stolen.
