Coincheck restarts yen withdrawals after cryptocurrency heist

Coincheck restarts yen withdrawals after cryptocurrency heist”

The traders will request that Coincheck allows them to withdraw cryptocurrencies to "wallets" - folders used for storing digital money - outside the exchange, Mochizuki said. It added it would keep restrictions on cryptocurrency withdrawals until it could guarantee the secure resumption of its operations.

Coincheck has also struggled to return to full operation since the hack, but did announce Monday that it would allow users to begin withdrawing their cryptocurrency in yen. In addition, he told those assembled that the company is considering capital alliances with other exchanges. More than $370 million was immediately withdrawn from the exchange.

Coincheck earlier submitted a report to the Financial Services Agency explaining how the hack occurred, what kind of support will be provided to customers and how systems will be bolstered to prevent future hacks, the company said in a separate statement. "The group may launch a second lawsuit at the end of the month to claim for damages over the heist".

Since the incident, Coincheck has promised its members that it would discover the root cause of the breach, ensure the safety of its customers' accounts, and improve its system risk management to ensure the same breach does not happen again.

The agency is set to ask for additional reports from the exchange if it deems Coincheck's plan is not up to scratch.

Also Tuesday, the FSA issued a warning, the first of its kind under the law, to Macau-based cryptocurrency exchange operator Blockchain Laboratory Ltd. for not having registered with the government. The firm ostensibly hosts investment seminars, but under the belief that these seminars are meant to lure individuals into investing in ICOs, the agency classified the company as a cryptocurrency exchange.

The NEM tokens were suspected to be part of the loot from the heist, which had been divided among several different wallet addresses following its illicit transfer away from the platform.
