New Details Emerge In Relation To Recent Crypto Scam With Turkish Bitcoin Exchange Sistemkoin
New Information Comes to Light In Relation To Recent Crypto Scam
As some of our regular readers may remember, it recently came to light that Sistemkoin’s native operational protocols contained within them a few intrinsic flaws that allowed miscreants to essentially spy on other people’s support tickets.
Sistemkoin is Turkish crypto exchange with a total volume of around $150 million. However, what is interesting to note is that over the course of the past few weeks, many users have reported experiencing a host of problems while trying to withdraw their funds (from the exchange) as the bitcoin ecosystem could be experiencing another trading platform setback.
To be a bit more specific, one user claims that despite making use of the 2-FA security module being offered by the platform, Sistemkoin constantly doled out the assets in question to a “completely wrong wallet address”.
When asked for a comment on these allegations, a representative for Sistemkoin stated that exchange did not “investigate the claims put forth by third-party sources”.
Lastly, it should also be pointed out that the aforementioned issue is also being faced by a number of investors from smaller altcoin markets such as India. For example, a Bangalore-based day trader named Naresh posted a tweet recently wherein he mentioned that he too has been facing a lot of challenges while trying to process his withdrawals.
I have transferred dash coins from ur exchange to binance and I entered my binance address and I got mail from ur exchange to confirm the withdrawal request and confirmed the withdrawal request but u transferred funds to different address😡

More On The Matter
In regards to Naresh’s case, a Sitemkoin executive came forth and said that he was trying to scam the exchange.
“He did two withdrawals and receive two mails. He’s confirming one of them and claiming that he did not withdraw to that address. Not only that, after 12 ETH withdraw, he claimed that we stole his coins.”
In closing out this piece, we should mention that these recent incidents suggest that both the claimants as well as SistemKoin’s dev team have valid points to support their respective arguments. However, as a word of caution for our readers, it is generally not advisable for traders to make use of an exchange that possesses a low tx volume or has a small customer base.
