As the edition notes, no official statements from the representatives of the platforms have not been received yet. At the same time, Mr. Exchange declared on March 8 that it received a warning with the requirement to strengthen internal protocols of safety against the background of breaking of Coincheck at the end of January and stealing more than $530 million in NEM tokens.

According to Nikkei, closing of the exchanges would happen not earlier, than all means of clients which were stored on them would be removed or returned by different ways.

Insufficient reliability of internal security systems was also specified as the reason then. Besides, before Bit Station similarly withdrew the application for obtaining the license for work in Japan, as well as two more platforms — Raimu and bitExpress.

Besides, it is claimed in the material that others platform could also soon follow Mr. Exchange and Tokyo GateWay: FSA has suggested several exchanges to be closed voluntarily before the relevant official orders are issued.
