9 months past half a billion hack, Coincheck cryptoexchange started accepting new customers

The cryptotrading network, located in Tokyo, which suffered a record loss of 530 million USD worth of NEM tokens, subsequent to the hacker’s breach of its hot wallet in the beginning of the year, has revealed yesterday, that the platform is ready to accept new customers with its improved KYC verification. Coincheck can trade for digital currencies at the moment, namely BTC, BCH, LTC, and ETC. Before that, the clientele of the exchange was only able to trade BTC, while other markets were closed.

In the upcoming future, the cryptoexchange, which is now under new management of the Monex Group, aims to reinstate cryptotrading for five more digital currencies: ETH, XRP, XEM, LSK, and FCT. It is worth noting that digital currencies that focus on privacy are absent from the list, including such digital assets as XMR, ZEC, and DASH, all of which, possibly under pressure of policymakers subsequent to the January cyber attack, were delisted by the firm this June. REP, the dedicated token of the controversial prediction market network, Augur, has been also deleted form the list.
