    What happened to FTC in Shapeshift?
    It is said that the app supports FTC but I can’t see the coin in the exchange panel ?
    Did they remove Feathercoins from it ?

    When shapeshift.io reconfigured their site, they had to re-add coins afterward. I already sent a message request on their site and on the shapeshift facebook page. Hold on tight, it may likely come back soon.

    ShapeShift Lost $230k in String of Thefts, Report

    Finds Stan Higgins | Published on April 18, 2016 at 17:25 BST
    News

    Digital currency exchange ShapeShift lost as much as $230,000 in three separate thefts over the course of a month, according to an incident report prepared by the service and obtained by CoinDesk.

    The report comes days after ShapeShift was taken offline following a then-undetailed security incident that resulted in the loss of funds held in the exchange’s connected wallets.

    ShapeShift later said that it believed the theft was an inside job.

    According to the report, that employee stole $130,000 from ShapeShift in mid-March. The employee, who was not identified, later sold sensitive security information to an outside hacker after being fired from the exchange. Another $100,000 in funds denominated in bitcoin, ether and litecoin were stolen on 7th and 9th April.

    The report goes on highlight the steps taken by the hacker to obscure his or her tracks. It also details two conversations between the hacker and CEO Erik Voorhees, during which it was claimed that the employee had sold key security data .

    Got this reply from Shapeshift.io

    Wrapper : A few of the new members on the forum are starting to ask about the shape shift feature we built into the wallet. I thought you handled FTC, but can’t see an icon?

    Hi there Wrapper,

    We are still working on re-launching some of the coins we had listed pre-hack.

    We hope to have FTC back up in the coming weeks. Let me know if you have further questions!

    @greenuser I’ve been checking about once a week, although they’ve added a lot of crap coins in the last month there hasn’t been much activity since. (Nubits? Mintcoin??.. 😕 ) My guess is they’re down on internal support (and funds, it seems)…

    I am no expert on (the implementation) of shapeshift.

    Is it available as a service from other sites, e.g. on tcr or 1p2 ?

    Should FTC disable the shapeshift option Lizhi built into 0.9.1 FTC Wallet?

    ie What are te details on the cause of the hack?


  • | Tip greenuser

    @wrapper Shapeshift? They had a rouge employee. A security guard. He made off with eth & btc and has not been seen since. It appears that staff at shapshift fel into the bad practice of not locking their terminals when they went to the loo. No customers funds were affected. It was the hot wallet he took
