Russian Hackers May Have Carried Out Largest Ever Crypto Exchange Theft
Russian hackers, not North Korean, may be the bad actors behind probably the biggest ever theft from a cryptocurrency exchange.
The individuals are accused of trading cryptocurrency stolen during the $560 million exchange hack in 2018.
Major Japanese crypto exchange Coincheck aims to launch its first Initial Exchange Offering project for Hash Palette, a content distribution platform for Japanese comic and graphic novels, anime and music by next March.
Coincheck, one of Japan's largest crypto exchanges, banked its parent 9 billion yen (US$82 million).
Coincheck's .com domain had been "in a state where it could be acquired." No funds have been lost, the firm said.
The men are alleged to have been offloading NEM taken from Coincheck since February.
