At 2.57am local time on Friday, all NEM, a type of virtual currency held by the exchange, located in Shibuya, was illicitly transferred out of their digital coffers. Coincheck discovered the breach at 11am, and soon halted withdrawals in all currencies. Trades are on hold for all virtual currencies except bitcoin, Nikkei reported. The exchange is currently determining how many customers were affected, and has said it is considering possible responses, including compensation for those that lost NEM. Coincheck managed NEM accounts on systems vulnerable to hacking via external networks. Such an attack may have Globe Newpaper.pdf 1 25/1/2561 17:15:02 been responsible for the incident on Friday. Coincheck “deeply regretted” the incident, CEO Koichiro Wada told reporters at a Friday press confrence. The Chief Operating Officer from Coincheck, Yusuke Otsuka, has said that they are “currently determining what impact the breach is going to have on our finances.” The theft has been reported to Japan’s Financial Services Agency as well as to police, and the exchange is urging its peers to halt trading in NEM. Coincheck is one of Japan’s top virtual currency exchanges. Their main rival is the Tokyo-based bitFlyer. It has attracted users by offering a wide variety of cryptocurrencies. While Coincheck does not reveal how many accounts it hosts, an industry insider claims the exchange holds “hundreds of billions of yen in customer assets.” Customers were posting via social media on Friday afternoon and aired concerns about the fate of their cash and cryptocurrency holdings.
