Crypto assets go up

As Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong told, from his point of view Canadian platform Quadriga didn’t stage its downfall to have investors scammed, as folks have suggested.

The company only has access to its hot wallets, connected to the network. However, the crypto wallets have less than $1 million, which is not far from the C$180 million of crypto assets frozen in user accounts.
