The exchange said that some people were able to exploit a bug and withdrawing all the exchanges including customer funds. You can see a tweet from the exchanges official Twitter below

We have not disappeared guys. We simply turned off our accounts temporarily to think this solution through. We cannot refund everyone all their funds, but we will be opening wallets to whatever we have left so people can (hopefully) withdraw their funds.â MapleChange (@MapleChangeEx) October 28, 2018
