Coincheck has partially resumed the auctions and has begun the payment of compensations to NEM holders

On Monday, March 12, the Japanese exchange Coincheck declared that it had begun payment of compensations to the clients who were injured during stealing of 58 billion yens in the NEM cryptocurrency in January of this year. Besides, on the platform the auction is partially resumed, it is reported in its blog.

In theit message it is noted, that payments would be made at the rate of 88,549 yens (about $0,83) for one token of NEM, as it had been announced earlier. In total, the platform intends to compensate about $420 million to 260 thousand clients.

Coincheck renewed options of withdrawal of funds and trade in several cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Ripple and Litecoin. It is noted that an opportunity to make operations with other digital assets would appear a bit later.

At the same time, Nikkei Asia reports that the security system of Coincheck could be compromised several weeks prior to the breaking. So, according to the anonymous sources close to investigation, for the first time hackers had begun to distribute phishing letters with a virus to the staff of the exchange at the beginning of January.

Besides, the hackers could get access to the private keys connected with the impressive sums in NEM, long before January 26. It is noted that at that time at the disposal of Coincheck there were no necessary tools for tracking of similar connections of the platform with external servers.
