Coincheck resumes services after January hack

posted 20 days ago
Japanese crypto exchange Coincheck, which suffered a $533 million hack in January, has now reinstated services for all 9 listed cryptos on its platform, which were all available for trading at the time of January’s hack. These include Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), and others.

Last month, the exchange also started accepting new account signups for customers living in Japan, which had been suspended while regulator-mandated improvements at the exchange were underway. Going forward, the exchange plans to resume leveraged transactions, Japanese yen depositing through convenience stores and a scheme that lets users pay power bills with crypto. According to data from CoinMarketCap, the exchange facilitated $31 million in trading volume on its platform over the past 24 hours.
