Sydney: Cryptocurrency exchange Crypto.com mistakenly issued a customer A$10.5 million ($7.2 million) rather than the expected A$100 ($68), media reports say.

Seven months later, when the exchange finally discovered the error, some of the money had already gone, The Verge reported citing the Australian news outlet 7News as saying.

The initial transfer occurred in May 2021.

However, the exchange only realised the mistake when conducting an audit in December that year, the report said.

Now the company’s fighting to get its cash back with a lawsuit filed in the Victoria Supreme Court.
