Coincheck was hacked! $533 million stolen

Unknown hacked the Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck and stole cryptocurrencies for 58 billion yen (about $533 million).

The sizes and the procedure of paying the compensations to the victims, Coincheck promised to disclose later.

Yuji Nakamura, Bloomberg’s journalist in Japan, who attended a press conference of the cryptocurrency exchange, commented on Twitter that frauds stole only NEM, the details of breaking are unknown, and the exchange plans to resume work after restart.
