The announcement on Excoin says there was a large amount of small BTC transactions in by the hackers. These BTC were then used to buy NBT and NSR. Were the BTC tx real? They did not mention.  The whole thing seems fishy and could be an inside job.  They should be able to compensate their users since they back the exchange with a reserve.

Yes. Or it may be an overlook.  Very unfortunate.

This reminds us. Avoid putting your spare PTS on the exchanges.
