Coincheck Hack and Re-establishing Services

The exchange was hacked back in 26 January 2018, where XEM valued at $532 million was embezzled. Coincheck halted some of its services after the hack and re-paid affected users a total of $420 million.

Throughout the year, since the hack, the exchange is slowly reviving its services. Japan-based users can now open accounts, deposit, and withdraw BTC, ETC, LTC, and BCH.

Other services will be opened once it is deemed secure by outside technical experts.
