He wrote in a brief update:

Our team is making progress and has been working through the weekend. In the past few days, we have made some significant overhauls to our system, with a large number of advanced security features added and/or completely re-architected. We will share details on some of the changes later.

We aim to fully resume deposits and withdrawals on Tuesday. The time will be communicated at a later stage, depending on how the testing goes. This upgrade will require a trading halt. We will update you again tomorrow.

Following, the hack last week that cost the exchange a loss of around $40.7 Million in Bitcoin, the withdrawal and deposit actions were marked  “Suspend”, though it allowed intra-token trading on the site, However, one of the users stated in a Twitter post that they were able to send deposits to the address by way of previously identified addresses.
