After disclosing the news of liquidation according to the court order, the bankrupted exchange informed the customers that it cannot afford remitting the funds hacked from them at least to the time the investigations are complete.
The investigation process should be done by some employees at auditor Grant Thornton along with the management as well as shareholders of Cryptopia which according to the estimations mentioned in FAQ, it will be about some months. They cannot even promise any confirmation about probable return of the assets.
In fact, the main reason for this unsteady economic condition of Cryptopia is the hack itself, as the company claims.

FAQ gives some cautious warnings to the customers explaining that it is almost unlikely to resume the trading, it will not request any confirmation of user details including the customer’ balance; moreover, it cannot assure the customers whether their funds will be in crypto or fiat, in case the condition is suitable to return them.
Among the other limitations declared by FAQ is forbidding the withdrawal whether the coins have been deposited on purpose or accidentally. Inability to accept any reopening account is another limitation which it points to.

Among the remarks the customers addressed is their anger about not being informed about its closure.
