One of Japan’s largest currency exchange coaches, Coincheck, suspended operations with the NEM coin, and later with other altcoins, after more than 100 million XRPs (about $ 123.5 million) were withdrawn from the purse of the company in an unknown direction. This is reported by Cointelegraph.
“The purchase and sale of all cryptocurrencies (altcoins), except bitcoin, is currently stopped. We apologize for the inconvenience,” says one of the Exchange’s latest tweets.
Later representatives of the site added that payments with bank cards and Pay Easy service were also suspended. Details of the current situation users promise to report “in the near future.”
At the same time, for the yet unconfirmed information of journalist Joseph Young, another 600 million dollars were withdrawn from the exchange in NEM.
It is worth noting that Coincheck, unlike other major sites like bitFlyer and Quoine, is not registered with the Financial Services Agency of Japan (FSA).
According to some reports, reporters began to gather in front of the office of the stock exchange.
Recall, earlier representatives of the FSA reported that the financial regulator will take control of the crypto-exchange markets.
