In late January, hackers hacked Japanese exchange Coincheck. Her purse was stolen 500 million tokens NEM, which then cost 435 million dollars. Then the thieves tried to sell the coins, but nothing happened. Now the exchange has announced its intention to stop working with an anonymous cryptocurrency Monero, Dash and zcash for. About this writes the Japan Times.
The exchange may refuse altcoins
The assets of the users of these cryptocurrencies Coincheck buy at a fixed price, say the sources. It will be announced later. The exchange did not respond to a request by the Japan Times.
In addition, the exchange is considering the possibility of accepting Monero, Dash and zcash for only verified accounts. How administrators intend to identify users is unknown.
Termination of work with an anonymous cryptocurrency is most likely due to issued exchange order from the Japanese financial services Agency. The office conducted an inspection on the fact of theft of money and made Coincheck recommendations on accession to the system of prevention of money laundering and financing of terrorism.
