We'd like to give some information about yesterday's CSC issue. From CSC developers we've received an email to stop all CSC market, tonight we found out that: "A member of the CasinoCoin Foundation's personal key file was compromised about 15 hours ago which led to a 'theft' of all coins held in the associated keys to a sum of 1.6bn CSC.
