BlueBenx, a Brazilian crypto lending platform, lately blocked 22,000 customers from withdrawing funds following an alleged hack that drained $32 million (or 160 million Brazilian actual).

Regarding the hack, an unnamed investor advised Portal do Bitcoin:

“I think there’s a high probability of it being a scam because this whole hacker attack story seems like a lot of bullshit, something they invented.”

The assertion displays a basic lack of belief amongst buyers in centralized crypto exchanges.
