Canadian crypto exchange QuadrigaCX, which owes customers $250 million in CAD ($190 million U.S.) in cryptocurrencies and fiat, lost another $500,000 CAD by mistake last week.

In an initial report published Tuesday on Quadriga’s progress since it filed for creditor protection in late January, court-appointed monitor Ernst and Young (EY) said that the company accidentally moved more than 100 bitcoins into a cold storage wallet it cannot access.

According to the report: “On February 6, 2019, Quadriga inadvertently transferred 103 bitcoins valued at approximately $468,675 [CAD] to Quadriga cold wallets which the Company is currently unable to access.
