Coincheck Reopens New Signups, Deposits and Withdrawals of ‘Some’ Cryptocurrencies
Hacked Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck continues to reboot itself following a multimillion-dollar hack in January.
The latest phase of a step-by-step reboot of Coincheck, Monex added users could also begin depositing and purchasing certain cryptocurrencies.
“...Here we announce that Coincheck has resumed ‘new account openings’ and ‘customers’ depositing and purchasing some cryptocurrencies’ services today,” the statement reads.
Purchase options now extend once more to the three altcoins, Bitcoin having continued to be available in the intervening period since Monex took over.
For those choosing to open a new account on the platform, Monex advised a strict know-your-customer (KYC) process would be in place, in line with regulations demanded from exchanges by Japanese regulator the Financial Services Agency (FSA).
Fiscal results published by Monex yesterday, Oct. 29, revealed that Coincheck saw a 66 percent decline in revenue for Q3 2018.
In January, hackers stole funds from Coincheck at the time worth an estimated $534 million.
