NEM Rises Owing to Coincheck
March 13, 2018
Weighted NEM currency rate has grown by about 20% (~ $900 mln) for the reason of the Japanese Coincheck crypto exchange having started paying compensation to its users who fell victim of the January hacking. Total sum of payments will amount to ~ $450 mln.
After long checks and inspections by FSA the exchange lived up to its commitments and resumed funds withdrawal and trading the most popular currencies.
Presently cyber fraudsters have turned to launder almost 50% of all stolen tokens to the tune of $75 mln.
