Bter suffered a major hack recently, losing 7170 BTC (US $1 600 000) that had been in cold storage. Since then, they have reopened, claiming a temporary solution with a permanent fix on the way. They are slowly paying back the missing funds to their users through their fees. Bter has been the victim of two separate hacks in recent times, and have shown a willingness to accept the punishment for their failure and ensure their users are made whole–but will they be able to keep it up? They have a difficult road ahead: they must regrow volume to generate fees to pay their users back with. If they are unable to, they will be in real trouble.
